    That brief little video makes it look uninteresting. I think a mech strategy game should be more open like the CM series. Hexes feel like it might constrain the game...

    YAY!

    The video was a bit haphazard. However, the game description almost makes it sound like a CM-styled WEGO game. That would be a cool way to go.

    YAY!
    My reaction, too.

    I noticed but I don't think hexes seem like a fitting idea for a mech game. Makes it seem... to cartoonish. And yeah, someone finally got the idea

    I know one of the games was released for free but my download attempts all failed. Ah, it's Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries

    Was it? I still have the original CD somewhere. I really liked the look of that game at the time, but I found it a very hard game to master.

    Now we can look forward to MechWarrior Online:

    Soon it's going to be an exciting time to be a fan of mech warfare. 'Bout time!

    The Mech Commander games where released for free. However I want a new updated game, that would be turn based or WEGO and full of chrome and details etc etc.

    I am still watching this long video, but I have to say that I think I might buy into the beta. This seems to be one of those board game ports that is doing everything right. Detailed combat, WEGO-based combat, configurable game settings, play against bots, play against other people, even a pan/zoom adjustable camera for screenshot mongers like me! These guys might have just earned my money.

    EDIT: On second thought....I see that even those who buy into the closed beta are still covered by the NDA. That's no fun. Guess I will wait for the open beta, then. Shame, I was all gung ho to buy in now.
