Mechwarrior/Battletech

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Did anyone ever play Mechwarrior 4:Vengeance, or any of the expansions thereof?

I abso-friggin-lutely MISS that series of games..So what up M$? No more PC Mechwarrior titles? Not that it matters, but am I the only one upset----no, MORE than upset, downright angry that M$ is only developing Mechwarrior titles for 360?...Just based on the fact that PC's have many more keys/buttons/peripherals to interface with almost makes PC-versions better based on that fact alone. Not to mention depth and graphics potential...

And a question...does anyone know whats up with FASA...do they control ANY rights to the series anymore? Or are they pwned by M$ now?

Yeah I am a long time fanboy of Mechwarrior/Battletech. I own every novel of the series, and have the board game and card game stored.

I played Mw2 *all of them*, Mw3, Mw4 *all of them*. As far as where the game has gone, down to the bottom of MS list, they bought the rights, and hacked/slashed the game then turned it into Mechassault/mechcrap on the xbox. Now some people like the mechassault games and no hard words toward them but M$ screwed the whole game up and made it into a arcade version that just appalls most Battletech fans.

As far as a future game, who knows. Mektek has made several patches which added 100+ mechs and variants and improvements. They are working on their last patch before hopefully realeasing their QuakeWars Mod. Hopefully we will see some more things from them.

You follow btech? Novels? Board game? There is an game called MegaMek, google it, its free and you can play over lan/IP/online. Really fun imo. Let me know if you hear of anything, new's wise. VIVA LA CLAN WOLF IN EXILE! lol

Oh and FASA is still alive somewhat but does not control everything as like in the past. They sold the rights to Wizkids, and now Wizkids just sold to someone else, though it was just a change of ownership. The gaming rights were sold to M$.

We recently had a rumor of a possible Mw5 for M$ new Vista, but that is all it was. Visit Mektek and look in their Artwork and you can see the renders of their QuakeWars Mod, their battlemechs look amazing, I beleive it is a Urbanmech and maybe another. Hopefully we will see something amazing...

I played MegMek a few times... It is just the tabletop game, right? I use to follow B-tech a bit... I just knew the units, history, and rules...

Yeah megamek is the PC version of the board game, I beleive they are going to make it 3d sorta in the future.

But yeah we had a rumor last week that there was a possible Mw5 or something around Btech announcement... but it feel through, or atleast we have heard nothing. The community has sorta dump the idea of M$ coming out with another game, so the community is developing their own.

Keep your fingers crossed because it would be awesome to get something that our own people made out. Time will tell though...
