They are going to ruin this game if they merge it with controller based games. I expect nothing less.

Mektek ruined MW4

IGN also has a little info/rewind trailer thingie going over it as well as screens.

Late to the party but...

Erm, ooo-kay, time to plan upgrades around that mofo...

It's amusing to see how many shit mechs people think are "cool" because the video games make them so.

Thor is a horrible mech, as is the Behemoth.

It's also funny that the Atlas took that much damage from the Whammer without putting it down considering the Atlas, in any normal game, would own the Whammer in a city.

As far as the guy who mentioned about "basement dwelling mouth breathers", keep in mind that anybody who likes something quite a bit doesn't like to see it portrayed incorrectly. This is the same with any book made to a movie also.

I've been reading BT books and such since I was 13 (now 30), I bought MW2 the day it came out and played on Netmech over 33.6 on bi-lateral modem and Kali for years (moved to college and played on ethernet). It sucks to see them fuck with the game and make it cheesy.

The Summoner/Thor isn't that bad.

The Behemoth could be a lot better at 100 tons... but anyways

The one thing I've never liked about the video game adaptations is that the lighter mechs never really had a place. You used them until you could get something better (heavier). I liked using the kit fox in mw2, and the shadowcat in mw3... but towards the end it was more or less impossible considering the game would just throw you against a plethora of assault mechs.

Summoner/Thor is terrible. Once you consider the utter lack of weapons and high BV, it's a near worthless mech.

Light mechs have a use if you don't suck at playing Mech.

Clearly in a stand up fight against anything larger you not using cover or tactics you'd get your head handed to you.

yes? this is what I said. The video games seldom give you an option to use anything but an assault or heavy. Lights and mediums are very useful in the table battletech.

If you read the IGN Q&A they state that they're aiming to fix that.

I can't wait for this game. I nearly pissed my pants reading the news.

Also, I played the shit out of MechCommander back in the day when MPlayer.com was still around. Clan Smoke Jaguar was my thing even though I knew they eventually got eradicated lol.

The point is: who cares? If you want to play the best representation of BattleTech then play BattleTech. Obviously the games, with dozens of people working on them, each with their own interpertations of rules, and mechs and all the other variables are never going to be as accurate as you hope.

I was never a fan of MW4 vanilla, but wouldn't mind some MW4 Mercs.

Don't expect them to release it for a while. They're stripping out all the version/authentication between versions and mech packs, and combining it into one installer.
