Spoiler:
 

I don't think most people have heard about this game, with Mechwarrior Online overshadowing it. It is supposed to be a more direct translation of Battletech than any of the previous games, complete with a hexagonal grid and turn based gameplay. You yung'uns probably won't understand the joys of a tabletop game being played in the back room of your local comic book / gaming store, but old farts like me eat this shit up.

I just got my beta key and am getting ready to go play this until I get sick of it. I think the open beta is slated to begin sometime near the start of next year; right now this game is in closed beta.

So, is anyone else playing or planning on playing this game?

Um, what does a MechCommander Wiki link have to do with anything that I said? I've played that game.. to death. I've beat that game up one side and down the other and have played every major release of every mod that I could find.. and, honestly, I don't even like MechCommander; It's real time strategy game with little to no Mech customization options that uses non-cannon Mech layouts that aren't possible under real Battletech rules; I just played it because it was set in the Battletech universe. Battletech was made to be played on a hexagonal grid in turn based format, which is what this game is.

Do your homework.



(I had some feedback to say about the game, but I almost forgot that I'm under a Non Disclosure Agreement.. so I promptly deleted what I had typed before I hit the Post button. I guess I'll tell you all what I really think about the game once it's in the open beta stage.)
