    Looks very interesting, like a cross between Heavy Gear 2 and Borderlands. I'll be keeping an eye on this!

    I think the environments are the most impressive part of that video. Not that the rest of it isn't impressive, just that those cityscapes look fantastic for something being rendered in-game.

    The mech animation looks a bit ropey and jerky in places, but with it being at an early development stage it's more than forgiveable.

    Between this and Mechwarrior: Living Legends, the Mech outlook is looking pretty decent despite the disappearance of MW5.

    Destructible terrain is quite new, and so I wouldn't count on it being in a inde game for quite some time.

    They are welcome to surprise me though :)

    oh yea this looks awesome, I just wish it would have singleplayer, but still will probably buy it for the multiplayer.

    Hope they think about doing a singleplayer in the future maybe as a DLC, add on or something?

    Awesome!
    Mechwarrior 4 left a mech sized hole in my life ... a hole that desperately needs to be filled. This looks like it will do the job nicely :D

    Wow, looks great! I like the environments and the verticality of it all. Could be a lot of fun in multiplayer :)

    Liking the combat area, liking how the mechs look, don't like the current combat. Too much reliance on jetpacks and those things are way too fast for something that prolly weighs over 15 tons. :)

    nope, but I get your point. I am just thinking more like BFBC2 destruction which is still some way off for an inde game.

    Might be worth buying a new computer for, this one won't run it, but I need mechs in my life.

    Trailer looks great if only they would upgrade the broadband in my area so I could get back to multiplayer.

    I only got a chance to play 4, I couldn't get 3 or 2 working properly on my computer :(

    After reading a fanfic "Marion's Misfits" I couldn't bring myself to side with Steiner ever >_< wtf.
