Does Mechwarrior 4 (not Merc's, just the original one!) run on XP? I still have the original CD's and my Microsoft Force Feedback 2

Yes. I can get all MW series games running on XP.

This thread is so brimming full of awesomeness I can barely contain my glee. That movie looks really, really good - the feel of piloting a mech from MW2 combined with modern graphics and effects. Way cool.

Nice of them to release MW4 + expansions, too.

Lastly, the thread should be called MechWarrior rather than Mechwarrior 5, as apparently that's what it's going to be called!

Yeah, the 1080p trailer is impressive.

IN GAME FOOTAGE
are the three best words that can be said to me when showing a trailer.

This sounds awesome. I loved playing MW2 and MW2:Mercs when I was a kid, I bought MW4 and some expansion packs a year ago but I was disappointed with the gameplay and graphics, plus there were some technical issues with the game or my PC that ruined the experience.

I hope this is as kickass as it seems!!!

Here's the link to the IGN vid and article again:

I haven't been this excited about a video game in years!
