    Wow.....that's....beautiful. I know now what I'm getting my brother for Christmas....

    That said, gogo PA Servers?

    That also said, this thread needs more activity with regards to who's on playing MNC so we can hook up with non-pubs.

    The title for this thread needs to be changed for this awesome piece of information:

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/63200/

    Yes. That is a steam link. For this game.

    Check out the key features

    Dedicated Servers

    That right there is enough to get me to make the switch

    Me, I'm slightly interested in that "Editor support" feature right under it. :mrgreen:

    Now that the game is unplayable in split screen (terrible framerate lag & has also hard locked my xbox twice), this might be a good way for my brother and I to be able to play together again while also including friends who won't touch a FPS without KBaM.

    I bet sniping will be a lot easier with mouse aiming, but it'll definitely take some adjustment switching from the game pad. Thinking about it, skill-use heavy classes like the Assassin might actually be harder to play without all the shoulder and face buttons at your disposal. Or maybe I just need to upgrade to a mouse with more than 2 buttons.

    Hopefully they will find a large player base on PC. This game deserves a wide audience.

    Wait, is the 360 playerbase going to be able to play with the PC playerbase? Or would I need to buy the game again through steam to play with the PC people?

    Also, I sent a friend request to the original PA MNC Clan playertag, since the A PA MNC or whatever only had 27 people in it and none of them ever seemed to be playing MNC.

    Considering it's on Steam and not Windows Live, I highly doubt the two platforms will be able to play against each other.

    I forget- did Shadowrun allow cross Xbox/PC play or was that feature removed before release?

    Some Steam games do utilize the GFWL for matchmaking.

    I did not know that. I haven't been doing much PC gaming lately. Maybe there's a chance, then, since the game was originally developed for & released on the xbox. I wouldn't hold my breath, though, since I can't recall a game other than Shadowrun that has supported that feature.

    I can say with 99.999% certainty that it will not support cross-platform play.

    I'm happy to see it coming to the PC, I wanted to try it but I don't like paying for Gold so I never bought it.

    Well the new trailer credits Steamworks, so I think that answers the question right there.

    So glad this is coming to PC.

    I highly enjoyed it on 360, but my biggest complaint was no dedicated servers! Ragequits and connection losses would often mean the game was over.

    Also, I feel like I'll do better with a keyboard+mouse as I felt like the controller was too constraining for a game like this. Hopefully it will also mean less lag, more timely updates, and better dev support.

    I'm certainly buying the game again and will see you guys on the PC version.

    Whoa, just checked the MNC website, and in the news story it mentions that the Beta starts Thursday.

    Also there's apparently new content coming out in January.

    Looks like a fun game. I'm a PC gamer exclusively so I'm glad to see MNC come to the PC. Price can't be beat either.

    Maybe this will be a Freeplay Tournie at PAX EAST?!?! :D

    yeeeeesssssss!

    Love Uber (developers of this game). They update so much and are always adding content. Their level of commitment to their community is ridiculous. For example, there was this one guy who constantly posted on their main forums and spread his love about the game. He did not have an Xbox360. Last month Uber sent him an Xbox360 so he could play. So awesome.

    Wonder if PC will be paying for the next content update.

    I know that originally they had said they wanted to offer more content updates for free, but MS only allows your first DLC to be free.

    I guess now we'll see just how much they meant that. :P (Not that I wouldn't gladly toss them a few extra bucks for more content)

    A big congratulations to Uberent for their success with MNC and moving to PC. The DotA and Sacrifice/Savage 2 players are going to flip out.

    I downloaded the free DLC but didn't actually play it. I will correct this today to celebrate

    EDIT - Dayum I missed a lot. They resolved the "lack of t3h blue Pitgirl," there's a new purple level, new animations, and I took a look at the rebalance sheet. I just wished turrets were more effective at shooting back at opponents. The game is still about curbstomping the other side's turrets. But the Rock It got more power, so I'll be investing in them more.

    Not that is matters when one juiced Assassin, Tank, or Gunner can destroy all the turrets in your base in a few seconds.

    That's another thing: being Assault is fun for me again, so I'll be assault for a while. I also noticed I still don't have enough for a fifth Custom Class slot. Rather frustrating I must say. I will not consider buying Highlights until I have all six.

    True, but a Level 3.3 hacked, overhealed turret in close proximity to a similarly-buffed Shave-Ice has at least some degree of resistance / damage output. More so than before.

    But still not enough. Turrets need more health. And those three classes need adjusting, or Support needs a serious buff to his heal-rate (alongside everything else :P).

    Turrets need to be able to hurt the hero units, who get away with way too much when they're fucking around in the opposing base.

    Was excited when I played this at PAX East this past March and the guy said that its coming out for BOTH 360 and PC. So happy I didn't get the 360 version, I HELD ON TO HOPE!

    That being said someone has to make a MNC PA steam group for the joys that are sure to come tomorrow.

    EDIT: And beta's a-go. Relaunch Steam or have it check for a client update, and it should give you the option to install.
