    That's 12:01am my time. :)

    I have a friend from Benin who speaks several languages, she learned "perfect" English and doesn't speak with contractions. None. Ever. I always think of BattleTech and MechWarrior.

    Clans, Quiaff?

    [edit]

    PS - I'm trying not to get my hopes up for an MMO Mechwarrior, it is highly unlikely imho.

    I'd rather it be a normal game I pay once for.

    FYI my "FJ" logo which is now my avatar was made for Mech Warrior 3

    I'll meet you half way, how about those games that give you both. A singleplayer experience thats exactly what you'd expect from that sort of game... & the MMO side you could join in and play on IF you wanted. ;)

    GO GO GO GO GO!

    IGN: MechWarrior Revealed

    trailer...
    http://au.pc.ign.com/dor/objects/18...ect/videos/mechwarrior_trl_phoenix_70709.html

    Eaheaheahea ;)

    Oh they're using the Unreal 3 Engine.


    [edit]

    I noticed they've specifically named and shown in the video some battlemech's that had some legal battle issues with the old Macross/Robotech IP Like the Rifelman and Warhammer (that were both 'mech's identical in the other game). I hope that doesn't cause them grief. :(

    Oh and the Multiplayer sounds great. Both Co-op replay of a thorough singleplayer game, and also some sort of persistant evolving war match featuring all the factions. Who will you fight for? ;)

    I am a FANBOI over here. Mech Warrior FTW. We used to do wrap arounds on work days so we could get more Mech Warrior time in. There were 6 of us who used to meet and play all night and then shower and go to work the next day.

    SOOOOOO EXCITED

    It's easy for us to get caught up in the excitement of an interesting game about to release. Followng the news releases... Hovering around their forums... Discussing it with your friends...

    About half the time getting your excitement level and hopes up so high just leads to disappointment when the reality of the game arrives.

    It borders on OCD. They have pills for that, don't they? And therapy sessions, too.

    The best cure though is getting caught up in the next game to come down the road, of course.

    :D
