    A lot of things sound similar-ish to Battle Brothers and I like that a lot

    Wait, what? They are putting it in Concordant worlds? What the hell? That means your two closest Great House neighbours are the MadCaps and the (at the time) Goody Two Shoes McDavions, and the leader of the Concordant has this psycho conspiracist SJW-esque hate for the McDs. That sounds like a recipe for a death and glory dive by your expendable merc unit into a Davion world financed by the MadCaps via the psycho...

    EDIT:
    Show Spoiler
    PS. I hope they FIX the damned loophole in the storyline post-3028: Candance Liao goes to New Avalon TO NEGOTIATE A STOP TO HOSTILITIES AND GET DAVION TO AGREE TO A MARSHALL PLAN. She then goes back to Sian, depose her father (who has had a complete breakdown by then), rule in his stead, marry Justin (who is never revealed to be a Davion agent) and get rid of Romano and her mad line.
    Give up the throne of the whole Confed for just St Ives, my ass! If she was as ruthless and power hungry as portrayed in Wolf's Dragoons, she'd never do that. If she cared for the people as portrayed in the Warrior's Trilogy, she would never leave the people in the hands of Romano.
    Damned Stackpole dropped the ball there.

    I have had a Battletech boner since the demo came out. I try not to play it much, but it's tough.

    I think I saw an ad yesterday that said if I had a Battletech boner that lasted longer than four hours I should seek medical attention, but I don't care.

    I'll eat my proverbial hat if Helm Memory Core, Myndo Waterly, and foreshadowing of Operation Scorpion don't make an appearance.

    Kind of difficult. If we are looking at it being set in the TC, then you are at the opposite end of the Inner Sphere from where all the mentioned action is.

    The game footage got me a bit of a nostalgic feeling for the old FMV pilot feeds from MechCommander. Sure they were rather cheesy and 90's vidya budget production, but they were a fun little detail.

    That mission that they showcased on Youtube has completely pointless "return to starting position" portion.

    edit.

    I should have watched whole video before commenting :selfhate:



    VA is kinda annoying (hope that menu offers option to set order confirmations to happen less frequently) and music is boring, self repeating mediocrity.

    I was mildly triggered by the projectiles/lasers passing through the hill to hit the enemy mech.

    That shitty white UI color scheme is final and the player will not be able to change it.

    I thought that was Glory at first glance.

    Looks a little like Star Trek Discovery, triggered.

    Warrior: En Garde takes place in 3026. The Comstar Primus is still Julian Tiepolo.

    Ok, I'm tumesced too. The game taking place RIGHT BEFORE En Garde is so sexy. Wolf's Dragoons is in the middle of their Kurita contract; still a few years before Misery.

    I hope they don't make it rogue-like in that they put in so many random variables in the morale and happiness system that an unlucky roll is a near certainty and you lose valuable 'Mechwarriors that way.

    While it may seem realistic, there are good reasons why turned based games tend to shy away from morale and happiness randomness. Now, if it were a fixed variable (i.e., you do this, this WILL happen, not this + random roll will happen), that is a different story. Turn-based thrive on better predictability as to what your actions in the turn will result in.
