Clutch pedal = sidestepThe money shot is 2:14 to 2:17. THAT'S HOW THE GAME LOOKS FROM THE PLAYER'S PERSPECTIVE. Game site here. Powered by the Unreal engine making a tri-platform release very possible. I'm jittery with anticipation, even though we practically have NO info yet.
I don't know about you, but this made me have a vertical element. HEY-O! (seriously, cannot wait)

Hopefully the jerkiness of the animations will be fixed, because otherwise it looks really interesting.
Eye'm the cutest!Why do I get the feeling this is kinda like Modern Warfare and Halo mashed up together with Armored Core? Because the end result of that line of thought sounds like it has hella potential.

Hiding a box of scrapsThey could use a little more variety in the character design. Did anyone else think METAL GEAR?!? when they saw the mecha? If there isn't a option to paint the mecha red to make it go faster, I will be disapointed.
A good writer puts in a lot of details in there story. But a great one gets a story from a single detail.

Hopefully the jerkiness of the animations will be fixed, because otherwise it looks really interesting.People seem to say that the devs said the jerkiness was due to the spectator-mode recording. It seems that way if you look at those 3 seconds of FPS view.
It's nice to see a Mech game with more of am emphasis on urban fighting. IIRC Mechwarrior largely tends to be fighting in plains and fields.
This is a downloadable game right? They're not gonna try and sell it to me as a full price game?
The flying is really what gets me interested. They probably haven't even decided yet, it's still in early development.
Of no signigifacne
That seems to me like one of the first things you should decide.
This hat doesn't fit!^Not necessarily. Some games are free first, then become commercial later, but the reverse also happens.
Clutch pedal = sidestepThey're hoping to distribute this through download. For money, of course, but that basically means Xbox Live Arcade and Steam.
And Ps N.
Clutch pedal = sidestepYeah, and PSN. Just wasn't sure what the Playstation network was called.
Well its called the PlayStation Network.
Avvie-free for life!An indie developer going multiplatform? That's pretty awesome.
Clutch pedal = sidestep^^Er, well, yeah, but I mean...for example, Xbox Live is Xbox Live, but the section that deals with the downloadable content is called Xbox Live Arcade. Similarly, I wasn't sure what the Playstation Network's downloadable game section would be called. On topic, regarding the degree of "sim-ness" - At least some weapons will have overheat mechanics, but there won't be any movement-related slowdown/heat generation like there is in Mechwarrior. I forget which interview this was; the site's webpage lists 3 interviews in the news. ^Yes, it is. Thankfully, the Unreal engine should keep things simple in that regard.

This hat doesn't fit!^So, it's semi-realistic? Interesting.
NostalgiaI've yet so see a completely realistic mech combat simulator. And before someone says "mecha wouldn't work in a realistic setting", yes, they do.
Avvie-free for life!Eh... that's a can of worms we should leave unopened. Well, the part about Hawken not having some of MW's harder traits is interesting but I can't see it becoming widely accepted if it becomes a Mech Assault clone. I just hope they can find the right mix of stylization and realism.
An indie developer going multiplatform? That's pretty awesome.How do you figure? They've given up any kind of fan promotion or financial help from a platform holder, instead becoming a minor Unreal engine game for people to overlook.
This hat doesn't fit!^Because it has been done before.
Avvie-free for life!It's the courage I applaud, not the financial sensibility. It's a huge risk for them as you've pointed out and their making the decision to do so nonetheless shows they have their fans-to-be in mind.
As has been said, the animations are kinda jerky. Otherwise, do want.
It a courageous decision in the same way licking a frozen flagpole is brave. Its just being stupid.
