Actually, Mechassault 2 pretty much fits the bill of a Mechwarrior game done with modern hardware (nice lighting and bumpmapping and such). It'll probably be more "arcady" like Mechwarrior 4 was, but still looks like it'll be pretty good. Still, would be nice to see Mechwarrior 3 redone, I thought that was one of the better mech-sims out (before the Mech series went more action-oriented). Although, if you want a REAL mech-sim, there's Steel Battalion...

Actually, where the hell DID all the mech games go? I remember a flood of them back in the late '90s, now it seems like there's only like 1 or 2 released a year. Guess mech-sims went the same route as space shooters and adventure games...

oh, snap, i forgot about avp (the first one, not the second). the first one had a scarier atmosphere, and a doom/unreal makeover would be schweeeeeet!

Oh, Mechassault 2 is an Xbox game coming out at the end of this year (like MA1 it's part of the Battletech universe, but similar to MW4 it's much more arcady). Here's a video of it (the video mainly shows off the new assault suit, but most of the game will still be spent in mechs): http://www.gametrailers.com/gt_vault...t2_e3_2k4.html

Flashback

I just loved that game on the megadrive, great gfx (for the time), very inventive and would suit the doom3 engine wonderfully.

1. undying (best underrated game out there!)
2. american mcgee's alice
3. soldier of fortune (could be too much if it it looks too real)
4. system shock 2
and of course... starcraft
Id like to see Dues Ex1 done with the Thief3 Shadows engine.
