How BattleTech Hopes To Do Giant Mechs Justice

There is no shortage of classic MechWarrior games for PC. MechWarrior 2 was one of the defining 3D action games of the 90s, and MechCommander remains a beloved tactical game among the people who remember it. But you could argue that there's never been a real BattleTech game, one that faithfully recreated both the tabletop tactical games and the kind of warfare portrayed in in…

Hexes And Mechsies: Mechwarrior Tactics

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…

Atlas-t, A Video: Mechwarrior Online

Now that I've shoe-horned it into the headline, it'd be doubly embarassing if my mechognition skills were a bit off. I think you'll find that the handsome chap below is an Atlas though, performing a hot drop in the first Mechwarrior Online video.

Mechwarrior’s Twin Resurrections

Well, triple resurrections, if you also include the upcoming sequel/relaunch. For the purposes of this post though, it's vintage Mechwarring. Not been able to try this myself yet - mainly due to the torturously slow proprietary bitorrent client necessary to download the thing - but there's a whole lot afoot in Mechwarrior land. First, a major new version of a free remake of Mechwarrior 2…

Whirr-Stomp Resurrection: Mechwarrior

It's back after a seven year hiatus. IGN has the full scoop, and they report that developers Piranha Games have some ambitious plans, including 4-player co-op. They're also going to try and make the full range of mechs significant within the game via recon and intelligence missions: "it's not just a race to the heaviest, most powerful mechs. The designers want to reward you for…

Wrecked Mechs

Fans of large metal things stepping on smaller things will be disappointed to hear that FASA Studios have shut their doors. Reportedly half of the team are being moved into the rest of Microsoft Studios. The other half move to the pub, nursing pints and considering what they plan to do next. We wish them luck with whatever it is. FASA, even in their modern…
