Default Battletech

Looking forward to this!

BATTLETECH - Tactical 'Mech Combat Returns to the PC this April!

Loved playing MechWarrior 4 20 years ago (MechWarrior 5 coming out this year!), and I like turn based stuff like this (XCOM2).

Got my keyboard, mouse, and monitor upgraded, as well as my CPU and video card..

It's looking good. I'd still like to see a sim style Mechwarrior like the old days too though. However this could be a good PC version of the tabletop game.

90% downloaded.. Hearing about lots of bugs, like GPU running at 100% (memory leak, whatever that is)..

Finger's crossed!

I'll keep an eye on this. I'm still working through Xevens X-mas gifts right now, but I was a Titanfall 2 fan (and Mechwarrior back in the day).
