Battletech

Post by Nyarlathotep » Fri Dec 28, 2018 2:22 am

Anyone but me playing the new Battletech PC game? Not Mechwarrior, but the new turn-based one from Harebrained Schemes?

It's a lot of fun, stomping around in big stompy robots and blowing the shit out of things.

"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

I used to play that one, back in the day. New one, obviously, is much nicer to look at

I’m holding out for a good adeptus titanicus game.

I haven't played it, so I can't vouch for the "good" part, but there does exist a turn-based Adeptus Mechanicus game

Looks interesting though. I have considered buying it, once I get bored with Battletech
