@Yoh

Often times I've tried seeing a trailer without the soundtrack blaring to get a better idea of what gameplay will be like.

Having watched the above both with sound on and off, it still appears that the game will be fun... just not as exciting as with the rock music jiving me up. Still good though. /thumbs up

Been years since I've played a good Mechwarrior game.

i have to disagree.

last MW game i had was Ghost Bear's Legacy. i'm partial to the BGM of that game. it was dark and tense especially the night missions. i'd prefer that music.

game is looking great though.

Looks cool but that ui would start bugging the hell out of me after awhile.

Now I remember why I never really liked mechwarrior, it's so freaking slow -_-

Looks pretty promising. Still need a lot more info on how the economy or getting, equipping , and maintaining mechs will work out, but so far so good.

Never let a Hunchback get that close! :O

I agree with tk124212, that volley of LRMs was sick.

One thing I always wanted was a mech warrior game. I was posting on internet forums 10 years ago trying to get companies to realize their was an interest in it.

The one thing I absolutely never wanted was a f2p mechwarrior, such a shame. I would have kept a sub running to a p2p mechwarrior game for a long time.

@SnarlingWolf

Exactly why is it a bad thing that MWO is f2p?

@Oskiee

Because it becomes in inevitability that it will end up as pay to win, even if it doesn't start that way.

It is only a matter of time until they sell stats, gear, etc. that are needed to be highly competitive. Feel free to think otherwise and then be one of the people shocked when it happens, just like people on other F2P titles.

I, on the other hand, will not support or be a part of it.

Not a fan of the laser hit resolution verse the oldschool laser hits which were a bit more realistic in the physics dept.

These lasers look like "flashlights" on a wall that is moving, not the lasers firing and hitting a targeted point in space as all targeting should be, Even EVE gets the lasers resolution right. This doesnt look good at all, missile impact also seem weak. I guess the mech movement did not look bad?

Looks good! Looks realistic! Like other posters have said the idea of these massive multi-ton machines dancing around humming-birds on speed is ridiculous! Glad they didn't go with that kind of "style"!

perfect. graphics are decent, combat is smooth. they preserved the essence of MW3, which is key. now that i see this vid, i know this game will be awesome.

Finally figured out what I didn't like. The HUD hovering on top of the actual cockpit model. Kill the HUD and put that stuff into the cockpit where it belongs. At most, put the HUD on the windshield and not hovering over everything else.

Looks like a great translation from the tabletop game to the computer so far. Nice job.

At this point, its not a matter of if I will play, just whether or not doing so will fry my laptop. Mechwarrior 2 was my first PC game. Ever. Battletech was my first tabletop game. Ever. There's no way I won't be trying this out on day one.
