    I like the Mech Commander one best (of the various mech game intros). "I know what you've got!"

    MW2 intro was pretty excellent, but it always bugged me that the characters didn't really speak like clanners.

    Delayed into 2019, I'm not surprised.

    Anyway, here's some recent gameplay:-

    Can't remember which Mechwarrior game it was but I used to love setting up with full heavy lasers and camping in a lake for cooling.

    MW5 looks really good

    Pre-order content is up, MWO credits are doubled for founders of that game.

    yeah the 100 ton IS mech is ok, unless they put in OP quirks the build choices are meh. The double MC is kinda useless as well as most Legendary players like myself already have thousands of MC saved up.

    How do you save up MC? Do you pay real money into the game then not spend it?

    Despite people claiming it's more of a twitch shooter for some reason, MWO feels like Mechwarrior to me.
    None of the games have captured the feeling of weight like 3 did but MWO isn't bad and I'm tentatively looking forward to Mech 5 Mercs.

    MWO really needs more maps and as they are working on Mech 5 it seems like that won't be happening anytime soon.

    Sigh

    it went Epic exclusive for a year. I am not surprised tbh but ah well.

    I requested a refund.

    Here's a summary of the AMA they did on discord.

    This is also worth watching.

    If SIdAlpha says is true then,

    They signed the agreement to go Epic exclusive in APRIL. They still ran the preorder sales for Steam etc and even NOW still have not sent an email out to all the preorder backers that they gone Epic exclusive..

    Note the refund can take up to 10 working days to process but you only have until Sept 1 to request a refund and apparently they intended to announce the Epic exclusivity at Gamescom which is August 24-26...

    I thought SidAlpha made some good points but he also got a little carried away towards the end of that video. They’re offering refunds, so if you don’t like it fair enough, get a refund. Is it really that big a deal?

    There was some deceitful behavior, they should have announced it when they signed the deal. That said the commercial realities of this decision are as plain as day. Saying it wasn’t all about money is silly but at the same time I do think MW5 will likely be a better game as a result, regardless of whether “more polished” means “more finished” or not. MWO isn’t doing so well and they probably needed the money, I have more sympathy for a smaller company in that regard than I would for any of the major publishers, screw the lot of them.

    I’d far, far rather have this than the monetisation we see in a lot of games. Not really setting the bar high, I know.

    I pre-ordered at the basic level as I love Mechwarrior and I don’t think I’ll cancel.
