Re: Interesting YouTube video
Please God, let it be Mechwarrior 5 ( MW3 style, not MW4!!! ),

Heresy, I know, but I enjoyed MW4: Mercs more than MW3. Now, I did like 3 more than 4 and Black Knight
I will ask that you explain yourself. Please do so with the clear understanding that I may decide I am angry enough to destroy all of you and raze this sickening mausoleum of fraud down to the naked rock it stands on.

I enjoyed MW4 Mercs more than Vengeance, but I like the way Vengeance used hostile mechs more. I haven't played 3 in forever.

 
Re: New MechWarrior Game?
Ahh, Mech Assault for Xbox made me love the MechWarrior series, making me get MW4 back then. Amazing amazing games, and it's great to see there will be another one.

Sometimes you just have to have colossal walking tanks to fully enjoy your daily rampage.

I'm all about getting the most out of games, so whenever I discover something very strange or push the limits, I upload them here:

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress to more pain."

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
If you liked MW4 you've really got to try MW3 and MW2. They were far superior and really sucked you into the universe.

Not that MW4 wasn't great, spent a lot of time on it, but the mechs in it were unimpressive and tiny-feeling compared to those in MW3 and 2.

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
The year is 3015!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OOO!!!!!!!


They only missed it by 10 years ( i wished for something around 3025), but if the game is really that cool, and at least that simulation-ish like MW3, i...in my infinite wisdom...will forgive them. :P

Well, as long as it has a Marauder, I'm happy.

You Sir, have taste!
The Marauder is a kickass machine.
Ever played GBL for MW2?

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
I have to say that the only MW game I ever played on PC was MW4 Vengeance and Mercs. I have been playing the tabletop for what seems like an eternity, though, and during all that the Marauder (Especially the D3D Variant, with the Large Laser instead of that crappy AC) was always my favourite 'Mech, both visually and from a gameplay POV.

EDIT: Apparently, MechWarrior 4 will be released for free....

Along with expansion packs, too. That's cool; I could never find Black Knight.

Black Knight was storywise, by lightyears better then MW4 or MW4 Mercs.
The missions were better but tougher, especially the escort missions.

The blackmarket feature added a lot to the gameplay, since you had to decide "am i going to equipe one Mech with top notch weapons, or should i buy cheaper stuff so that all mechs are, to a degree, equally equipped.

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
I saw this last night on the MekTek homepage.  There is only one permissable reaction:

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!

Now that is how MechWarrior should be done.  And as for the setting - 3015?  It doesn't get much better than that in my opinion.

In case you can't already tell, me very wants.  Especially the Warhammer.
When the reactor explodes, it's usually a sign that you've taken too much damage.

 
Re: New MechWarrior Game?
This may sound like a dumb question, but what exactly happened in 3015 that was of note?  I'm not a rabid follower of MechWarrior so please indulge me.  My only experience was a brief sojourn into the tabletop game (when I was 6) and two of the novels.

Nothing :yes:

There is absolutely NO FRIKKIN WAY for them to mess this up continuity-wise.  It's wonderful.

Other reasons for the timeperiod:  No ClanTech, no LosTech, no OmniMechs, no BattleArmor.  Hell, not even any new 'Mechs.  This is Vintage BattleTech prettied up.

 
Re: New MechWarrior Game?
So this has no Clans, no LosTech (whatever that is), no armor like Elemental or Longinus suits, and no OmniMechs (whatever those are)?  Just lots of Inner Sphere internecine warfare fought by giant 40-100 ton deathrobots?

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
Exactly.  No hyper-assault-x-pulse-rotary-heavyppc toting Daishi's here by the looks of things.

Back to basics with style.

And as for Omnimechs => http://www.sarna.net/wiki/OmniMech

Most front-line Clan 'mechs are Omnis. An OmniMech is just a 'Mech that uses pod-mounted weapons systems; they can be swapped out and reconfigured in the field.

Thanks.  Still don't know what LosTech is though.  It would also be nice if someone could tell me what the notable Mechs of this era are.

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
In BattleTech's timeline, 3015 is right at the end of the dark ages, where several important pieces of high tech knowledge (like, for example, how to build new Jumpships, or designing new Mechs, or advanced weaponry for the mechs still in use) are lost due to the intense fighting in the so-called Succession Wars.

Notable Mechs of this era are:
The Warhammer, the Marauder, the Atlas, the Battlemaster, the Valkyrie, the Jenner, the Archer, the Rifleman...
