    I always tried to get back on it, even though I knew it was completely pointless and I should have just restarted as soon as I screwed up.

    It's a trick question GHOST BEAR. I'M NOT FALLING FOR IT.

    Also, Mechwarrior 5 is pre-Clans? Yissss

    Takes place during the last part of the third succession war I think.

    MechWarrior 2 and all expansions and Ghost Burrs are so great. I really didn't love Mechwarrior 3 though. In-mission repair kind of ruined that game for me. Also somehow all the missions lacked the crazy creativeness of the MW2 games.

    things you do in the MW2 games:
    blow up a nuclear reactor
    accidently float off a giant ice frigate in space
    become a submarine

    Also my manual told me that a maneuver all the cool pilots were doing was jumping on other mech's heads though I was never able to successfully do that.

    And then I read the sort of 'mission statement' on IGN about what the devs are going for in the new game and I had to shut down due to overheating.

    OooOOOoOoOOOooOOOoOOOoOoOOoOOoOOOOOOOOoooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooo

    Jumping on heads was much easier when I figured out how to make the camera look down

    I played 2 + expansions more than any of the other ones combined

    Death from Above was totally possible, just hard to manage. A collision of the bottom of one Mech's hitboxes with the top of another mech's hitboxes would result in damage to the cockpit of the second mech. Like all collision damage in mech 2, the amount was dependent on the size of the mechs and the speed at which they collided.

    Could you even get a PPC on an Elemental? I think the weapon weighed more than the armor.

    When you created a custom loadout, the game saved it as a file in a directory, and the files could be hex-edit hacked to do all kinds of wacky things.

    That and a single jump-jet were basically the only thing you could fit on it. One shot, and if you were at anything above 0 heat you would shut down.

    You know what MW2 and MW2 mercs had

    boners music

    I heard this song and I remembered which mission it was almost immediately, which was really weird

    They're great games, but they play like a lightweight military simulator, even though at first glace they seem kind of FPS-like. Maneuvering your Mech around takes a lot of getting used to, and it can feel really sluggish until you get the hang of torso twisting, using jump jets, setting up fire control systems, things like that.

    I was in 7th grade when the 3050 rulebook was released and introduced the Clans and omnimechs. I stuck with House Davion.

    I've been looking forward to this for so long. My MW4 CDs were destroyed and I never actually got to play the expansions, but everyone raved about Mercs.

    Makes me want to try to get MW2 running again while the server is having a seizure.

    My first exposure to MW2 was playing with a buddy, one person on keyboard one on joystick. It wasn't an optimal way to split but it was sure fun :p

    Dude I built my very first computer so I could play this game. That video on page 1 really took me back.

    Pentium 133
    32MB of RAM (if you please)
    16MB Video card
    Soundblaster Video Card
    15" CRT monitor.

    FUCCKKK YEEEEEAH.

    I actually still have two mint condition jewel cased (originals, not remakes) of Mechwarrior 2 and Mechwarrior 2 Ghost Bear's Legacy. SO AWESOME.

    Do you guys remember the RTS mechwarrior game, MechCommander? I played the shit out of it.

    Man, I need to pull these out of mothballs and get my shit hooked up. We're lookin at getting a house in the next two weeks.

    MW2 was my first love. It was the first game I ever played that devoured me. I'd be at school thinking "oh man how many pulse lasers can I fit on this nova, how many heat sinks do I need". MW2 is responsible for my enduring love of dicking around in immersive fictional worlds.

    Mech Commander and the sequel were both great. Also both available free now as well if I remember right.
