I have mixed feelings about this: On one hand I am thrilled that there is a new game for the PC and the XBox 360 but on the other hand this is not the kind of game I was hoping for.

I prefer the more MechCommander style game not the Mechwarrior style. I could be wrong and this is more than it currently appears to be so, I will wait until I see more information before I make my final judgement.

Awesome... I've been starving for some new mech action for far too long. I'll gobble up any mech candy they put out, even if it sucks.

You gotta start somewhere and beggars can't be choosers at this point.

If this succeeds, well, Mechcommander is sure to follow.
My escape route goes through the enemy.
