Not sure I am too excited about bunny hopping mech combat.
Mechs are slow lumbering machines weighing up to 100 tons. They are not fast and nimble vehicles. Except the small scout mechs like the raven.
I LOVE the environment though. Very futuristic Asia feeling to me.
Am I the only person who has dreamed about this since he was a kid playing mechwarrior? I really hope they can pull it off.

I dont know if anyone caught this on AOTS... but this is looking pretty good. Talk of multiplatform too.

I was interested in this originally..but after watching the game play videos, it lost me completely. It's a bit too fluid and fast for a mech game. The fun of being in a Mechwarrior game was the massive difference in speed, maneuverability of the platforms. Huge Assault class mechs stomping slowly around, obliterating light recon mechs darting from cover to cover.
This is truly just an FPS, and looks way too fast. Ignore the cockpit screen, and it's just another shooter (granted using mecha as a premise means you can have infinitely more interesting weapons). I'll pass.
Here's hoping that new Mechwarrior game gets funded some time.
