I loved these games but haven't seen one in a long time....the modability of the Mechs was fun and with today's graphics...things like blowing up a city would be great. Just curious if there are any out there or if anyone has heard of one in the dev pipeline somewhere.

Did anyone else like these games or was it just me?

Update: Just found one at http://www.warworld.net ....anyone tried this one yet?

I love MechWarriors but it seems the genre is not exciting anymore as fewer and fewer mech type games are coming out. The War World is looking good but one thing Im keeping my eyes on is the Chromehounds game. Currently is going to be avialable for XBOX 360 but Im hoping this game would reach the pc version.

God they were great games. Was a load of fun. Nothing like shooting the leg off an enemy and running rings around him taking him down one piece at a time.

I tend to hate xbox ports. The controls never really work on a PC the way they should.
Still, thanks for the heads-up about these games. I hope they rock.
Sierra had a great game, too, that they ended up basing Tribes off of. It had mechs and all, was pretty cool as I remember.
The next BF will have mechs, but you'll have to fight off your vehicle-whore teamates to get to one....

I absolutely agree to this statement. But sometimes they do it right.

Have you looked at NBT (Net Battle Tech)? They have developed a new mod for the game called Hard Core and also some new mechs and weapons for Mechwarrior IV. There is still a large following out there.
