    I blame Batman Begins for the franchise reboot trend. ;)

    Why not the earlier Michael Leaton reboot? Or mission impossible?
    Lost in space?
    Or star trek the next gen?
    Or a hundred other reboots?

    It's not a new concept, far from it the media industries have been milking their cash cows for ever!

    "Piranha has also claimed that it'll be eschewing the idea of players switching to new mechwarrior robots as they progress through the game"

    Or they could not totally screw up the only thing that makes different setups have advantages/disadvantages? There goes any chance of a good MP, SP with any replayability. Yes mr. Dev your wrong. 'leveling' up your RPG stats in different mechs in 4 runs through SP may seem like more 'gameplay' but anyone with more than 3 braincells wants to 'enjoy' the game their way not get locked into playing your story x times. *waves fist at meta gaming &!*$'s*

    According to the background, you can only really do that with Clan mechs. And the one in the picture is unmistakably an Atlas, which isn't one of those.

    Sigh.

    Still want.

    Timberwolf/Mad Cat is probably my favourite mech. It just personifies the whole experience because it's such a recognisable shape. :D

    This reminds me of one of my most enjoyable features of Planetside was being in control of the huge mech machines in the big battles. Wonder if this will be similar

    Errr that's a loki in the trailer.

    Which is a clan mech.

    Which were not around at the beginning of battletech history.

    Reboot?
