Gonna buy MW5 ASAP. Warborn looks like ... anime? If game play don't suck, I may get it too.
You know what they say, don't you? About how us MechWarriors are the modern knights errant, how warfare has become civilized now that we have to abide by conventions and rules of war. Don't believe it.

I hadn't heard of Left Alive.  Seems to be getting absolutely shredded in the reviews.

Hmm Front Mission and Armored Core.  The dubbing on Front Mission really sounds off to me though.

Dual Gear looks to be the true Front Mission successor I've been waiting for.

Phantom Brigade is another I'm keeping my eye on, though it might be closer to xcom then front mission.  (which isn't necessarily a bad thing)

I've seen multiple places say that Metal Wolf Chaos XD has had a physical disc release but absolutely nowhere seems to actually carry it.  I suspect it might actually be a digital exclusive.

Yay, thanksfully it still being sold. It's only on Steam now at the moment.  Steam gives second chances to older games i think.  I never heard of this one before.

Phantom Brigade still not on steam yet, but advertising which is annoying.

Duel Gear seems to be still being developed, but the demo for the game is free last time i checked.  I'm  Front mission fan so this is my kinda game.

Metal Wolf Chaos XD was just released last week.

It's a remake of an obscure original XBox game that was never released outside of Japan.

Metal Wolf Chaos XD is also on GOG, if you don't like the Steam platform.

I have seen that Wizkids is comming out with Transformers in the Deepcuts line. Would that count for a Mecha game?

I played the demo for Daemon X Machina a couple times. I like the vibe so far, but the game structure and mechanics might tire me out quickly (the same thing happened with Starlink and No Man's Sky).
Alas poor Photobucket. I knew him Horatio, a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy.

I'm dubious about the quality that game is going to have, if it even gets funded.

It looks like they've just taken Mechwarrior 2 and added new skins.

I was looking up in CBT if there was a way to make a wheeled quadvee for Battletech. There is a quadvee mech with wheels but not turning into a biped.

The "quad" part of the name might have been a tipoff there.

Looks familiar. Does it have any relation to BattleTech Simulator?

I don't know. It just popped up on Kickstarter when I went to log in a couple of days ago

For sake of comparison, a screenshot from BattleTech Simulator:



Dead project it seems. Last update is almost from 10 years ago.
