It's supposed to be a fight? :?

@Xeno426:

Isn't Battletech a little dated system for this decade? That said I once dreamed of running a Mechwarrior campaign... also one of my key RP contacts was quite a bit influenced by battletech backstory (esp. the code of honor things). And by just a coincidence listening to MW soundtracks right now (yeah that was a few computer games).

And guys wasn't this supposed to be our COMPUTER game thread? :)

No more than Warhammer 40K. The Alpha Strike rules actually makes it rather similar to that playstyle as well, though I still prefer the original.

By MechWarror, do you mean the RPG? The newest version (which you might call MechWarrior 4th edition) is called A Time of War. Its problem is that the combat is brutal and unforgiving, plus it's most definitely written from a wargaming point of view (table everywhere). Character creation is... not very clean. On the other hand, it's made to very easily slot in to the existing Total Warfare rules (though some things don't facilitate this very well, like the AToW vehicle rules).

It's "Games I am officially excited about" not "cumputer games I am...", not even "video games I am...".

Yes MechWarrior used to be the RPG brand while Battletech was the boardgames (and books I think).

Since we're on to baord games, I've been wanting to get axis and allies for a while now, it seems like basically extreme risk (same goals, more complexity). Which version should I get for the most in-depth game? I have three or four buddies who would happily play for a day
.... I've also heard about buying two and combining them, what's that all about?
The only (probably) sane player to take a card of Akulas voluntarily..... UNTIL RED DRAGON!

Interesting, but I have my doubts and I am bit skeptical since it seems like every other project that is ambitious.

Trying to cover the whole war, but they leave out Italy :?. Hopefully we get see the North Africa campaign.

There's also Flames of War for tabletop gaming.

Isn't "the whole war" gaming lingo for "US & UK vs Germany Jul 1940 - May 1945 + a collection of experimental prototype weapons from 1950s"?
