Sadly I never found it in any media format...
Inferno plz

TheHound: "Nice idea, but I have a thing against announcing campaigns before having them already finished."
G5K: "The flipside of that is that if you don't announce your campaign, yet take too long to finish it, other people may independently come up with some of the same ideas."

They stole the Wrath of Khan music for the intro!?

I recognised vast swathes of the Aliens soundtrack there. No idea it was stolen from TWoK too. Don't think so though. Which means that more of the soundtrack is from Aliens.

It's hard to distinguish one of his soundtracks from another sometimes.

True. I did pick out bits from TWoK in there. But it's mostly the music from

a) The point when Ripley drives the APC into the nest to rescue the marines
b) The bit where Bishop flies the drop ship away from the exploding air reprocessing plant

Going back to the original subject Killzone of all things had a fantastic CGI intro.

Plus a bit of the Predator theme right at the end. Not bad, their supernova scene is a hell of a lot better than FS2's, but I still like the standard Freelancer opening cinematic more. Better editing, pacing, music and sound.

The crossover from the cryo tubes to the Coalitions advance, and all edits in between is inspriational, Saying that, the best use of fire in a cutscene is the Lighter from the Broodwar intro, for the life of me i cant replicate it in ANYTHING....... ;)

Are any of these newer Mech games any good?

Mechwarrior 4 and MW4: Mercs are passable, not great not bad, with the mektek's mechpacks Mercs is much better but only on multiplayer, Mechcommander 2 is average too.

If you get MC2 you must get Magic's Unofficial Expansion as well.

For a game that wasn't entirely terrific, C&C Generals had one of my favorite intros.

Starcraft, Brood War, and Allied Assault would all fit nicely into second place though.
Spoon - I stand in awe by your flawless fredding. Truely, never before have I witnessed such magnificant display of beamz.
Axem -  I don't know what I'll do with my life now. Maybe I'll become a Nun, or take up Macrame. But where ever I go... I will remember you!
Axem - Sorry to post again when I said I was leaving for good, but something was nagging me. I don't want to say it in a way that shames the campaign but I think we can all agree it is actually.. incomplete. It is missing... Voice Acting.
Quanto - I for one would love to lend my beautiful singing voice into this wholesome project.
Nuclear1 - I want a duet.
AndrewofDoom - Make it a trio!

Depends what you want.

I dislike the Mech4 series because they don't feel like Mech simulators like the previous games.
It feels more like a game of quake or something.

My favorite one was Mech3 so far ;)

MC2 isnt too bad, but MC1 was better. The MC2 intro is nowhere near as good as them MC1 one 'tho ;)

Ah, if it only worked on XP without a problem. :(

Wait, doesn't it?  My Mechwarrior 3 works fine... have you tried the 1.2 patch?
It's the Mechwarrior 2 trilogy I had the hard time getting to work.  Eventually I just rebuilt a 350MHz dedicated DOS/Windows 98 machine and now it works flawlessly (and so do many other games I had once said goodbye to :))

There is absolutely no reason I can come up with why it shouldn't. Mine did.

It does work on Xp but way too many times the game crashes, at least for me.

You just don't see decent into FMV nowadays. It just game-engine movies that are no where near as good.

Namco beat 'em ups such as Soul Edge/Blade and Tekken 3 were great. Thief2 had a whole series of short movies in between missions that were great. To think Ion Storm reduced the short scriptures to simple loading screen fodder. Bastards.
