Looking good. According to the interview they only started production last October, so it could have a long ways to go yet!

I never knew that even though I did play MW2. Prolly because I didn't have the net back then to look for the cheat.

I'd still be happy with another game in the Mech Commander series. I loved them as well.


OMG, just saw the trailer....... that looks amazing.

How the hell do they expect us to wait for something like this?

That video's going on my ipod. And my phone. And I'm setting screenshots as my wallpapers on my pcs.

I have a raging stiffy for this.

Holy shit! That looks absolutely freaking amazing!!!

I can't really remember much of the original MW games as I think I was a little too young (I did play MW2 though, im sure...) and now they won't run on modern hardware, but I've always wanted a new game with giant fighting mechs to play.

Definitely hanging out for this!!!

Hopefully it will be more simulator quality rather then arcade quality.
That movie does look good. Between this and SC2 coming out, I'm not sure if my marriage will last

hot damn! just watched the trailer and read the interview and this is more exciting than duke nukem forever!

Extremely ambitious but by the sounds of the interview they know what they are doing and need a publisher to give them a tonne of money to do it right. good luck to them cuz that is shit HOT!!

Best gaming news in a decade. Reading the interview gives me faith that they might actually do it right, too. Unlike IV which was a bucket of fail that killed the mech sim genre for years.

MW with modern lighting and particles, surround sound, physics, HD resolutions among other things... a dream finally come true. Now LucasArts just needs to do a new Tie Fighter, and I can die a happy gamer.
