i think it's a neat take on the whole collecting-to-make-it-bigger idea

when i was a kid my parents used to take us to visit my uncle in houston. for us there were a couple of attractions in houston aside from seeing family. one was a store where the modo was try it before you buy it. the store sold everything from washers and dryers, to videogames to kitchen utensils. so we would go to this store and play warcraft 2 and duke nukem 3d on 4 networked computers in the very center of the store with the Makarana dance video coming on every hour on a giant screen on top of us. my parents would bring us, shop around for a bit and then leave us there for the day and pick us up later. better than dragging 3 teenage boys around to different stores so they could go antiquing.

next was a place called dave and busters (D&B). it was and probably still is a chucky cheese for adults. wonderful place. at one point they had a mechwarrior game which was fantastic. unlike all the other games which you stood in front of a screen and used an arcade pad, this was some what 3d. you got into a mech both as iff you were really entering a mech and you had 3 screens (i think) in the booth for the '360' view. the booths were networked and either you played deathmatch

or you played co-op, once again, it was years ago so i'm not quite sure. i played with my dad and my brothers, but up to 8 or 16 people could play in their own boths at the same time. was at the begining of network gaming so it was a big deal. and then to sit inside one of the machines was incredible. i think they may even have moved or rocked back and fourth when you moved your mech in game.


so i can't really go back to playing mechwarrior on a console or pc after that. :(

I loved MechWarrior 2. It was my bread and butter game for so damn long. I loved it from the intro to the end credits. As cheesy as it sounds, it (or at least the manual) taught me a lot about the concept of honour. That, and I learned that putting 12 laser cannons on a mech and linking them all to fire at once would kill any other mech in a single blast (just don't miss!). You know, important life skills.

I don't remember, but I do remember it nearly overheated the mech in one shot.
