Episode 13 – MechwarriorSeptember 13, 2012
Hey there Blockers!
Time for episode 13! This week we delve into the world of Mechwarrior and Battletech.
Since I’m such a big fan of this series, I’ve got too much to say, so I forego the news except for one small item: Over the weekend I guest hosted Treks in Sci Fi episode 401. There I talk about two 90s Star Trek adventure games by Interplay. Check it out if you’d like!
Then we quickly get into things. I talk about both Mechwarrior and Mechwarrior 2. I cover quite a bit of Battletech backstory, how the games differ, gameplay, tech focus on each and a great development story.
In current Mechwarrior news, I discuss the upcoming game, Mechwarrior Online.
I discuss how to get these games running using the community-made source port, MechVM.
Finally, we listen to a great voicemail, I give my verdict as to whether or not Mechwarrior holds up today and close out the show.
Next week: The really cool Sierra adventure game series, Gabriel Knight.
Enjoy episode 13!
