Ladies, Gentlemen power up your mechs..

To be honest i’m very excited about the sequel to COD4 coming out at the end of this year and the continuing high quality of the Fallout 3 extras that keep being churned out.

However all that has now paled into insignificance after seeing the announcement of a new Battletech game on IGN

Added to this glorious news is a suggestions that Mechwarrior 4 may be being re-released FREE!!

I’ve been a fan of the game from the very start of it’s tabletop game format right through the computer games, and I spent lots of money when you could play at the various mechwarrior game centres were set up in the early – mid 90’s..ahh happy days are here again…

    Prestige edition of Modern Warfare 2 comes out with some night vision goggles. lol SRSLY.

    I couldn’t recommend more the latest release, Battlefield 1943. 20 buck download from xbox marketplace.

    BFBC2 comes out around the same time as MW2, as well. Kinda keen myself. Gonna buy myself a new tele for that. lol.

    …and LOL @Lerm. If you can’t fuck it, he doesn’t know about it. lol

    Moko, LOL!

    Lerm don’t worry it’ll only become important when you finally settle down (ie after some woman breaks both your legs)!!!

    Chaz, I think it will be the husband/boyfriend that does the leg breaking.

  6. Moko Says:

    ROFL

  7. chazfh Says:

    Fantastic news Chaz, the 3015 date will make it interesting if they keep weapon ranges the same, also I’ll wait to see if they go old school on design or new. All I can say is “I want it NOW”

    And I believe there is going to be a heavy emphasis on multiplayer. So I’d be happy to sign on with your assault lance.

    Great news, I hear its a reboot, not a sequel -taking place in the period of the 4th succession war.

    Though in the Video that WarHammer should have kicked the Jenner’s ASS.

    Bangar yes but then the release of MW4 for free will mean at least some multiplayer goodness before release. I’m sure that Orin would be up for it.

    Shame it’s for PC only and not 360…

    Barnes, it’ll be interesting how big the multiplayer will be esp if they’re looking at using the ‘true’ tabletop capabilities. it’d be cool in having a proper company set up with recon, medium, heavy and assault lances. have located the original game on abandonia.com and am booting up dosbox for a bit of retro mech fun.
