Re: New MechWarrior Game?
Yep, although there was still a "Reseen" image for the MAD.  Just because the original image was still in Unseen limbo doesn't mean the Project Phoenix visual "upgrade" version disappeared.

I have a problem with the human-shaped Mechs / Mechs that look like Gears. :doubt:

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
hmm I take it these mechs are among the originals franchise wise?  The Marauder, Warhammer and Rifleman look pretty similar to the equipment in Macross.

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
I did sort of mention that already. :P
The Warhammer is the Tomahawk Mk. IV, the Rifleman is the Defender Mk. X, and the Marauder is the Zentradi Glaug.
Actually now that I see it the Archer is the Spartan Mk. II.

And the differences between the two of each are almost non-existant, they're as miniscule as an extra antennae, like the Warhammer to the Tomahawk, one has an antennae removed, and that's it.

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
YEARR! I have spent most of today flailing about gleefully after watching that trailer.

I've also spent a bit of time thinking about what mechs are likely to show up in the initial release of the game, given that it's mainly a Davion/Kurita conflict, and it occurs before any new Mech designs have been created (with the sole exceptions of the Merlin and the Dragoons' Marauder-II).

The following have been confirmed:
* Jenner (35T Kurita)
* Unseen Rifleman (60T Davion)
* Unseen Warhammer (70T IS)
* Atlas (100T IS)

These are the ones I am guessing will show up in addition to those, at a minimum.
* Either the Stinger or the Wasp (20T IS)
* At least one of: Commando (25T Steiner), Javelin (30T Davion), Valkyrie (30T Davion), Urbanmech (30T IS)
* Phoenix Hawk (45T IS)
* Centurion (50T Davion) and/or Hunchback (50T IS)
* Shadow Hawk (55T D/K) (Griffin/Wolverine are also possible but neither was quite as prominent in that part of space)
* Dragon (60T Kurita) (no Drac unit worth its salt would be without a heaping helping of these)
* Catapult (65T K/L) (it's been fairly prominent in many games, far moreso than the other 65-tonners)
* Marauder (75T IS)
* either the Awesome or Victor (80T IS)
* BattleMaster (85T IS)


Okay, I've gone on enough. Time to get back to drooling.

Now where's a drool smiley when you need one? :D

Yeah, I honestly don't know why people equate Crysis to "Jesus **** I need a 30,000 dollar computer to run this" so much. It runs fine on my year old budget system.

Meaning the year it was released and still not to the game's full potential.

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
So what, you wanna run anything new to it's full potential at a cut down price, you build a time machine and buy one from 2015 then bring it back. I'm not going to debate technological obsolesence at the point at release. It's a fact of life......

Still, back on topic.......... Drone, influenced by GRAW? Welcome gameplay feature if at all present or simply novelty?

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
Welcome feature.  Consensus on CBT forums is that it's basically the fluffed sensors that no-one ever has a use for in-game.

EDIT:  I forgot to explain why.

Now the game actually has some semblance of stealth instead of it being TurretTech.  You don't get to just press button, shoot bad guy.  You actually need to use teamwork and stuff like the drones to find them first.

Where did see the Rifleman being confirmed? There's only 3 mechs in the trailer.

Re: New MechWarrior Game?
Hmm.. Events placed in 3015... Which should mean that no lostech what so ever is available and even ComStar is still hiding their lostech stuff. Twenty or so years before first few lostech stuffs start to be rediscovered/available (from what i quickly checked from the web).

Wonder how strict customization rules they have used in the game...
