Heavy Gear Returning

Stompy Bot Productions and Dream Pod 9 announce a return of the Heavy Gear series of mecha combat games that had a pair of video game releases from Activision back in the 20th century. There's no release date yet, but they say the game is coming to PC, mobile, and consoles. "Dream Pod 9 looks forward to working closely with Stompy Bot Productions in developing the next incarnation of Heavy Gear's 3D video game," says Robert Dubois, President of Dream Pod 9. "Stompy Bot has the drive and talent to bring the world of Heavy GearŪ to life for all of our fans and a whole new generation of gamers." The Stompy Bot Website has the first concept art. Missed this last week, thanks nin via Rock, Paper, Shotgun for the reminder.

HG1 was freaking great, but for some reason I never got into the sequel. If they get a remake right, there are a lot of fans out there.

It's a similar situation to Mechwarrior or maybe Tribes, although the current iteration of the latter seems to have hit the nail on the head and the fans love it. Hard to do though.

I also loved the first HG, but not the second. It just felt too different from the first.
That and the fact that the mechs felt more fragile than HG1.
I also vaguely seem to remember my legs getting damaged a lot too, but I might be thinking of another game.
The space combat in multi for HG2 was pretty fun though, at least for a while.

I just wish they'd released the final patch for HG1 officially. They invited a bunch of us to beta it, made you fax in a non disclosure agreement, then sent you a link to a "secret website" where we posted a laundry list of stuff to tweak . . . which was ignored for months, it seemed like, with no interaction from the people making the patch. Then suddenly, poof, no patch.
