    Surprise, surprise, good art direction and technical expertise actually count for something. Who could've guessed.
    Wonder who's handling that for Battletech.

    Hey, they actually promote some of their interns to full-time. Bretty gud for a small company like Harebrained.

    Certainly, because HBS decided to push racist commie fantasies of the far-left instead of just making a fucking non-politcal game. The Battletech universe was always diverse and not just a bunch of people in different shades of dark brown.

    UMM. SLURP... They are half white. You see when white and non-white produce a baby it is by default half white, but of white origin. SLURP... I AM HOLDING YOUR HAND HONEY...

    Who is also Harebrained's Sawyer-esque crackerjack project director. A rare combination.

    The graphics are actually fucking garbage, that is nothing to get excited about. Devs really need to stop using the shitty Unity Engine.

    EDIT: No need to get butthurt. Just look at the textures. It looks almost like a PS2 game or something. :lol: The only excuse they have is that it is "a work in progress".

    Wonder why did they insist on close-up screens when the birds eye view (with the interface on) would've surely looked much better and shown the game how it looks most of the time.

    I imagine for players from the TT Battletech (or Mechwarrior) communities mech porn >> everything for building up hype.

    Aren't these people out of earth? Why does it matter how close Portugal and Egypt are, do you think an Irish/Italian American is unlikely because Ireland and Italy are not neighbours?

    Yeah and it's also 1000 years from now and yet all the currently existing countries still apparently exist in the exact state they are today.

    We don't really know if those backgrounds are in-game or just something they used to guide character designs.

    Remember the first glance of ToN, it was made by interns too, and in the end more impressive than the final product. :roll:

    They sound engineered rather than natural.

    Well, look at a PS2 game running @1080p. You have a nice resolution, but the textures are still garbage. They actually look even worse in battletech, it all just looks like a blurry shit in different colors.

    It is of course a dev build, but it would be hilarious if the game was released like this.

    I like how the light hits the hills. Those are some nice plastic rocks.

    I get always slightly triggered when I see mechs on terrain.
    Ground pressure: how does it work?

    Before your time, but there was a guy who was very particular about the quality of textures in RPGs, especially when it came to tires.
