Lumbering never felt so good

As a long-time gamer, I’ve found some franchises that have consistently delivered (N.O.L.F., Freespace, Civ, GTA III+), some with flashes of brilliance punctuated by WTF (Doom, Wing Commander, Deus Ex), and some that I could never quite get in to (C&C, any MMORPG).

And then there are some that will always hold a special place in my heart, no matter how much wrong they do. Mechwarrior would be the shining example.

I’ve never been into the mythology. I don’t know anything about the Inner Sphere, the clans, the politics, the skirmishes, the intrigue — I never gave a damn. I just wanted to pilot a giant robot and blow stuff up. Mechwarrior delivers that ever time.

So I’m beyond psyched that the franchise is set to be reborn with a brand new game. Someone get me a link to a pre-order.
