Default MechWarrior Online

So... I got into the closed beta for the game. I received my email yesterday and I loaded up the client earlier today. I finally got to play a little tonight.

I can tell you that I suck at it so far. I only got to play a couple of matches and went out really quick both times. The handling of the 'Mech is really different as is how you aim and fire.

So far I have only put together one 'mech. It is a Hunchback that I modified by replacing the AC20 with a PPC. Obviously that wasn't a great idea. I may try to play some more in the next few days to see what else I can come up with. I am under a NDA so I can't do screenshots or video.

I actually played the tabletop Battletech game and then moved into the RPG MechWarrior. I played one of the early versions of the video games way back when and have always liked the premise of the game.

I started the series with Battletech on the CM64. My second ever PC game I played was Mechwarrior 2 on my dads 386. I had to learn DOS commands for that and Descent. Probably why I don't mind DOSBox at all.

I bought the founders pack 2 or 3 weeks back and so far have played for 10 minutes and didn't like it much at all.

I really should stick with it for a while and see how it goes because I played the originals loads when I was a small kid.

But yeah it seemed totally meh for the first 10 minutes.

I'm in. Downloading now. Instead of a G25 I'm going to head to Frys and buy a new stick.

I absolutely am loving this game. You can tell they are really doing this the right way... I am surprised at how stable and well performing it is already. I can't even seem to recreate any of the the very few and minor bugs that barely ever happen. I feel kind of irresponsible in having nothing bad to report lol

There is so much customization in this game (and I don't mean cosmetic) that I can't see me getting bored anytime soon.
