Wow.....no MechWarrior fans here? Everyone must be too young. MechWarrior 2 was one of my first video game loves, I am very excited about this reboot for the series.

Hell yeah, I'm a MW fan! I've played most of them starting with the first. There were a ton of knock-offs later, like Earth Siege and the like, but nothing ever really compared to MW.

MechCommander would be amazing RTS, give us that instead of Supreme Commander....blah

MechWarrior with a controller? EPIC fail. Very disappointing.

They need to do like Steel Battalion did with their own joystick setup.

I love Mechwarrior games...I would hate to see just another stupid MechAssault game.

Have you played Chromehounds? How does Steel Battalion compare? Was MechAssault gameplay that bad? I just heard there was no customization and passed on it.

MechCommander 1 was great but 2 just screwed everything up by allowing you to salvage all defeated mechs and letting you manufacture weapons once you captured the schematics instead of salvaging your equipment properly.

Mechassault is just a different game. Those of us who loved MechWarrior have watched it get ruined for years. We want another mech simulation game with good graphics and good gameplay. It's just not the same feel on a controller. It needs a joystick. It's not a simulation without it.

While I agree, I am very happy that it is coming to 360.

Since the games only been in devolpment since october it won't be out till fall 2010 earliest. meaning it could use project natal for it's control scheme e.g. you use your hands to mimick what you would if you where actually inside the mech

Interesting idea, but WAY too many buttons necessary unless they really cut back on the control options. It really takes away from a simulator to limit it like that.

Movement could be handled easily, even rotor turning...but throttle controls, weapon grouping, weapon firing (firing single weapon, group weapons, or all weapons), enemy/nav point targeting, coolant control...and a lot of others I can't think of would all have to be voice commands. Throw it my occasional cursing and that gets pretty complicated.

God the anticipation is going to kill me. I know that 3015 is before Clan Wolf and Clan Tech, so no Mad Cat (Timberwolf). That is my favorite mech. But heres hoping we will see Daishi (Dire Wolf?), Maurader, Stormcrow, and some of the other good mechs.

I think I'm more excited about the Ren & Stimpy reference than MechWarrior.

Wheres the Madcat?!?! I SEE NO MADCAT?!?!?!?

Still I'll be getting this for PC as I cant see myself using a controller for this. I like my crazy keyboard combo's.

As far as I could tell the list posted above only includes IS mechs. Even so, Mad Cat would be found as Timber Wolf.

Edit: Correction on that, there would be no Clan mechs or tech in the new game since it takes place just before the 4th Succession War. The Clans do not invade the Inner Sphere until 3049.

I was stoked

Then I found out it's going on the Unreal engine.

Unreal Engine -always- has bullet lag issues. Every game that runs on that engine is unreliable bullet lag multiplayer. Their Engine is flawed and they refuse to acknowledge it and repair it.
