Battletech 3025. Got cancelled during beta, relaunched and had issues. If I remember correctly it was the same timeframe that EA also canned Majestic and a few other games that weren't making anywhere near enough money. The battletech game was simplistic, but pretty fun as I recall.

Free 2 play.. I guess I'll give this one a shot.

edit: After looking at the "founder" options... now I'm kinda worried about something to be honest. The 50% bonus for earned xp and c-bills for a "premium" account is fine, however the $40-$80 worth of in game items worries me. Since it's free I'll give it a shot, and I don't necessarily have a problem with spending money on a F2P game(bonus xp, extra slots, etc.) but pay 2 win(idiots dumping hundreds of dollars into the game... *cough DIABLO 3 RMAH cough*, yeah people will do it and it completely obliterates any feeling of competitiveness.

I paid off my insurance early last month and used the extra money on the 120 founders pack.

Just hope they have a beginners section.
There was a fan version out built on Crysis and it was pointless
to play. You go in and these dorks that live there wipe you out in no time.

Gonna be like mech warrior 4 with World of Tanks multiplayer, you can always go to a higher tier and avoid most people. 1 life per match, just like WoT.

Another mech style game called "Hawken" to be out at the end of the year, I believe. I signed up for the beta, but I'm supposed to recruit three more participants.

Full disclosure: My recruitment ID is embedded in the link.

I used to love that game. Too bad I gave up computer gaming and stuck with xbox360.

I will be playing. Anything Mechwarrior and I am there. Armor up your legs b&^ches because you will be falling over! haha

I used to kick *** at these games online. I had some extremely badass mech builds. I'd constantly get accused of cheating. I'd build big mechs and load them with AC cannons set to link. One volley and the enemies armor was gone and usually it knocked them down. Of course I'd overheat, and I was very slow to move around, and I only had like what, 10 shots? But damn those were fun times. I hated those little turds running around with their tiny mechs loaded with medium lasers just taking out peoples legs... They were easy to destroy but they were so fast that it was tough to get a bead on them with a heavy and slow mech.

This game doesn't have legging in it. Rather, if you shoot a leg out, you'll gimp the other mech and they'll move slowly, shoot the other leg out and then you'll stop them. But knocking out a leg and watching them helplessly fall over was confirmed by the devs on their forum to not be in the game.

I sent my essay but apparently being brand loyal to nvidia since I've owned computers, playing battletech for 20 years and liking the mechwarrior universe enough to give my son "phelan" as his middle name wasn't a good reason to get an invite.

NViDIa can eat dick, I'm only buying AMD stuff from now on.

I prefer AC-20 to the back armor at close range.

Everyone today is spolied by Clan and Grey-Death gear. There was a time when there were no Ammo CASE systems, fierror fiberous armor and endo-steel internernal structure. Let alone pulse lasers and Ultra ACs.

Bah, kids today don't appreaciate fighting in a mech made from cobbled pieces of savlaged mechs because we couldn't make parts or new mechs in any sort of quantity any longer in the Inner Sphere. I fought in the 3rd Successor War, damn kids.

Also that the game does not have legging bites. You need to put mechs face down in the dirt, it is the ultimate insult. Sort of like Clubbing them with their own blown off arm or leg.

There should definitely be a chance that when your leg is knocked off you fall on your face, not sure if its planned. 'Mechs do fall over, though.

Currently they only fall over due to ramming, and apparently that's still buggy at best. The devs specifically said "no legging".

That was me. For me half the fun was building and painting my figures. Heck, I even created some of my own with balsa. I played some of the other computer iterations over the years too. Just have a feeling I'd be out geeked by some of these neo-nerds and have it be less than fun.

If you buy one of the top two founders packs you get to pick 1 of 4 mechs, I don't think the Warhammer is one of them. Actually the top founders pack gets you all 4 mechs. I picked an Atlas. I didn't see a Timberwolf/Madcat in there which is my "go to" mech. If you get the pack now you get into closed beta....... The game is also free to play (like Star Trek online) so its really all you will be paying for unless you want to throw down cash to get more XP or whatever in the future.

Beta status still pending, but that's okay I don't mind waiting, there is other e-crack to indulge in in the meantime

I don't think it's that bad but I have enough time in beta tests to get more than a bit worried about it going live...

I think its fun. Theres not much to it because its beta... if this is all there is I might be disappointed I guess.

Bah, kids today don't appreaciate fighting in a mech made from cobbled pieces of savlaged mechs because we couldn't make parts or new mechs in any sort of quantity any longer in the Inner Sphere. I fought in the 3rd Successor War, damn kids.

Also that the game does not have legging bites. You need to put mechs face down in the dirt, it is the ultimate insult. Sort of like Clubbing them with their own blown off arm or leg.
The only thing more ridiculous then the fact that I understand every word of this is that I have no doubt there are dozens of other folks who understood every word of this.

Am I the only person who thinks the franchise peaked at MW2? I never should have gotten rid of my battletech stuff.

MW3 was also good. MW4 is alright but just not the same...

Personally I think it was the re-optimization of the controls away from joysticks and towards mice. The whole point (IMO) of the original game was to have users memorize an unfathomable amount of controls to get these virtual contraptions moving and playing.

Of course, if anyone made such a game now optimized so joystick players had a huge advantage, it would never sell. IMO.

Free 2 play.. I guess I'll give this one a shot.

edit: After looking at the "founder" options... now I'm kinda worried about something to be honest. The 50% bonus for earned xp and c-bills for a "premium" account is fine, however the $40-$80 worth of in game items worries me. Since it's free I'll give it a shot, and I don't necessarily have a problem with spending money on a F2P game(bonus xp, extra slots, etc.) but pay 2 win(idiots dumping hundreds of dollars into the game... *cough DIABLO 3 RMAH cough*, yeah people will do it and it completely obliterates any feeling of competitiveness.
agreed, "free 2 play, pay to win" games suck after a few weeks...
