So...anyone looking at the Battletech for the PC?

Oh and hey.....sorry been AFK for a bit.......sorry

was wondering if anyone is tracking the game by Hair Brained Schemes called Battletech. Wiesman is leading it. Looks like a much updated Mech Commander based on TT mechanics....looks good so far, I am a kickstarter supporter so when I see something I'll pass it along.

BBQ and my Harley have taken a lot of my time of late....but if this pans out, I think it can be a really good game

From what I have seen and read in the forums, it will be like Mech Commander, but based on the mechanics of table top......in real time.....I think.

ugh, no.

BATTLETECH will feature modern turn-based combat, PVP multiplayer, and a story-driven, Mercenaries-style campaign set in the 3025 era of the BattleTech universe.

in my opinion modern and turn based should not be in the same sentence.

you know there is a version of mechcommander that can be downloaded for free?
