Re: MechWarrior 5 in Development?!
It's not an uncommon factor in games that gear affects the outcome of battles. It's just like other simulators with different airplanes, tanks and weapons. But if it is balanced correctly it is still fun and possible to win and do well with lesser equipment.
Will be interesting to see what MW5 brings to the table. They got a lot to live up too, while still trying to interest a large new group of players. Just hope they don't make too many compromises.
