  • I thought the game came out Dec 12.
  • The last Mech game i played was Front Mission 3, which was pretty good, but haven't really seen one that has caught my interest since.
  • Looks cool, especially the way everything seems to be swaying. It seems to get the mech feel fight.

  • The last good mech game I played was Mechassault. Hawken is looking really good.

  • I've been following this game for a bit. Very excited to see what the end product is.

  • I look forward to trying this.  But with Mechwarrior online coming around the same time I think I will stick with that.  For me I enjoy the greater focus on simulation of Mechwarrior.  

  • I am personally looking more forward to Mech Warrior Online, but I am going to give this a shot as well.  I love the graphical style and speed.

  • Hmm... Been looking forward to this. F2P so why not give it a shot?

  • I'll give it a shot. Looks like Mechwarrior meets Steel Battalion, sans the awesome controller.
  • giant robots anyone?
  • God, I wish I had a PC that could run this.
  • hope it supports eyefinity, this game will be awesome :D

  • Makes me nervous that the best mech-ish game I've ever played (the original Armored Core) wasn't mentioned at all.

  • Had me till FPS. I kinda like to see my whole mech, meaning 3rd person.
  • Mod

    armored core 5 was great

  • Well if its free I might as well give it a shot

  • I love how the mechs have a lot of weight to them. The Hud shakes w/ impacts and shock waves, and even when launching/landing. Looks like it will be hectic bliss when it comes out.

  • Is it too much for me to fantasize about this game running on a Tesla II cockpit? I guess it's back to more Battletech: Firestorm till this releases.

  • That looks epic. I wonder if it will go to the Ouya since it's free-to-play.
  • Looks mechtacular
