SWEET!!! Somebody finally picked up the excellent heavy gear computer game license:
For those of you who never played Heavy Gear 2, you really missed out. It was, in my opinion, FAR better than any Mechwarrior game. It had strategy, tactics, sensors, and all sorts of cool stuff. Multiplayer was a blast too, wish it still ran on my machine :( There is a linux version, but linux, meh, whats the point?
I sure hope they do it right, don't go free to play, and make it easy to mod. I'm 90% sure MWO will flop, and 80% sure MWT will, so this may be a savior of the mecha genre.
If you don't know what Heavy Gear is, I think of it as the anime version of Battletech. Units can die in 1 shot, better pilots live longer and kill faster, tanks rule, but since Blitz came out I've lost a lot of interest as they are making it more like 40K. Oh, the minis are good too, but pricey.
