    I still play mech warrior 4 mercs myself, and loved steel battalion on the xbox.

    I just hope this is really a mechwarrior game, and not one of those god awful piles elephant manure mech assault games that were on the xbox.

    I don't know how i feel about it being a "reboot" though, just hope they keep the mechs the same, it just wont be the same without madcats and daishi.

    Looks like they have done some redesigning on the mechs though, the Atlas looked far more square in the old games.

    Oh gawd, Daishi was a BEAST.
    I loved Madcat, Daishi, and the fast Raven. ^^

    The guys from Team Crysis are also working on a MechWarrior game using the Crysis engine. My favourite Mech was the Annihilator from MechWarrior 3, Atlas was pretty sweet in that game too, I didn't like the limits that were put on the Mech's in MW4 though, I hope they eliminate that and give us more flexibility including complete engine modifications and more armor options.

    Microsoft owns the rights to MechWarrior. Smith and Tinker are licensing the property from Microsoft.
