"All hail, king of the losers!"-Age of Empires 2

I would love to see a MW MMO, it would be awesome, IMO theres a serious lack of GOOD land based Sci-fi games, all i can think of is anarchy online right now, and the graphics are seriously dated on that. If they made a MW with EVE graphics is would be AWESOME!
I just posted this in another thread, but you all may want to have a look at Force of Arms.

Briggy you forgot SWG!
oh wait, you said good, my bad. But yah, a MW MMO would be very nice to see.
They made another MechWarrior game...but for the DS. Bleh.
Microsoft...please remove your head from your butt and do something with the MW liscense or give it up to someone else!
okay, so if anyone was wondering what Chrome Hounds was like...I can sum it up easily by saying..."Mechwarrior it aint!" I believed all the press that pushed it as the next great mech game, but seriously, it pales in comparison. Sure, the graphics are decent, but the gameplay is just lame. Its slower than mechwarrior and it lacks the detail of the mechs. (I dont mean visually, i mean in terms of the mechs themselves) For instance, in MW you had various locations that could be hit and destroyed on a mech. In CH its more of just a single hit location to destroy the machine. The manual says that you can hit different parts, but in reality, it seems to just be random. While using the sniping weapon, I was taking out mechs being very ccareful to hit the cockpit area, and the mech would show signs of leg damage. ??? I didnt quite get that.
The single player game is too easy, and the missions can be completed in a few minutes each. The game is advertised as an xbox live game, meaning you can go kill each other online, but I am not an XBox live subscriber so I cant play it online.
The mechs themselves, or "hounds", are okay looking, but where parts mean (torso to legs especially) the point of contact is so small that I dont know how it would really stay together. stack on a generator for energy and a huge pile of guns and there is no physical way it would work. (I know, its a game, and I should give it some slack, but the programmers need to make things at least somewhat plausible)
Oh, and if you were a fan of small light mechs that we fast, look somewhere else. the game plods along at roughly the same speed for all the mech types. You can get different "leg" types that will move at different speeds, but even the fastest one moves pretty slowly. everything kinda moves around as if they were assault mechs, and even assault mechs seemed to move around the battlefield quicker in MW.
One last gripe before i get back to work...whoever wrote the script for the npcs needs am editor. in one of the missions, your commander makes a joke in the beginning of the fight about how he doesnt really care about what happens here as long as he gets paid, and then later on says that he loves his home and is going to defend it no matter what. Sooo....is he a merc or is he defending his home??
I dunno...if anyone is a serious MW fan, dont look to Chrome Hounds to fill the void. If you have never played MW, the game might be okay.
