Hexy Videos: Two Hours Of Mechwarrior Tactics

By Jim Rossignol on June 3rd, 2013.


Good morning, you! How was your weekend?

Okay, two hours is probably a bit too much for one sitting of Mechwarrior Tactics gameplay footage, and I have to warn you that this unedited footage of someone playing a slow strategy game, complete with phases of silent clicking. But assuming you do actually want to digest all that, you get to see a wad of gameplay, mech loadouts, and of course some tactics. The game is in closed beta right now, and this footage is taken from that phase of the game.

Shrugging At Atlases: MechWarrior Tactics’ Closed Beta

By Nathan Grayson on January 10th, 2013.

Aw, they even have matching paint jobs. That's adorable.

Mech. When you hear that word, what are the first couple things that spring to mind? “Big” is probably one, right? And the other? It’s almost assuredly “rebel.” I mean, just look at them. They clearly don’t give a goddamn about you or your rules. So MechWarrior Tactics is some kind of crazy bizarro world spin on traditional videogame rocket-’em, sock-’em robotery. In this strange alternate dimension, multiple mechs do everything you tell them, and they’re tiny widdle babies! I mean, I could just eat them up. It would cause me inconceivable amounts of pain, but I could do it. At any rate, Tactics’ closed beta just kicked off. Do you want in? OK, let me rephrase that: Do you between-$20-and-$120 want in? Well then, proceed past the break for brain-enriching infobolt.

MechWarrior Tactics Trailer Will Hex Your World

By Nathan Grayson on April 26th, 2012.

[Wilhelm Scream]

I rub my eyes and blink. Something’s not right. The living room furniture’s in its proper place, but the trusty carpet – grizzled veteran of countless drink spillages – seems… different. Segmented. I glance down at the grid-based mech marathon unfolding on my PC, then back up again, and the terrifying truth suddenly dawns on me. Hexes. Hexes everywhere. I dash outside – one turn at a time – into a blinding tangle of sunlight and gold-tinged grids. Horrified, I run back upstairs, only to catch my reflection in my bathroom mirror. I am gridded. I fall down weeping in vain hope that the tears will wash this waking nightmare from my seared retinas. This unsettling vision of my probable future has been brought to you by MechWarrior Tactics, which you can catch a glimpse of after the break.

Hexes And Mechsies: Mechwarrior Tactics

By Adam Smith on March 2nd, 2012.

Yesterday, the chug of a guitar echoed around RPS as a mech made a drop into enemy territory. Today, more mechs and from the same universe, but these ones are a great deal quieter because they exist in the frozen screenshots of Mechwarrior Tactics. Perhaps as you look at the hex-based battles you’ll be inclined to play raucous music from your personal collection. That is your choice and although I’d suggest something of a more baroque nature to accompany tactical cognition, do not feel compelled to follow my lead. Click to make ‘em mech-sized. Or at least a bit bigger.

STOMP! STOMP! STOMP! MechWarrior Tactics Sign-Ups

By Craig Pearson on February 15th, 2012.

Where do robots go on holiday? Mechsico.
I don’t know exactly what Mechwarrior Tactics is, but it has a countdown on the webpage that ends on Monday. Two things happen at the end of countdowns: either a thing will be revealed, or a ex-cop will snip the wire on a bomb, saving the orphanage. I’m presuming that it’s choice number one, because its from the same people currently making the free-to-play reboot of the original game, MechWarrior Online. You can go to the site and sign-up, ensuring you protect your commander name from the rabble, while I ponder what it could be.
