We’ve know about MechWarrior Online for a while, and I haven’t said anything about it yet. Trust me, it’s not because I haven’t noticed that the news it out there. It’s a free-to-play online game set in the BattleTech universe. I’ve sat back with cautious optimism because I want this game to be good, but there are so many ways it could end up bad. However, this video has pumped a healthy dose of enthusiasm into me. It looks like MechWarrior. It’s got the menus and the lights and the indicators and the lasers and the missiles. It has the simulation look and atmosphere, which is exactly what all of the fans of the series have wanted to see brought into the modern day. For those who don’t know, I’m part of a group in Houston that has 16 of those old Virtual Worlds pods hooked up to each other. It’s like sitting in the cockpit of a battlemech and runs on the MechWarrior 4 software. So, trust me… I’m a bit of a MechWarrior enthusiast, and this video makes me smile a lot.
