Also I never seem to play against people who use mechs with those kinds of rules in real life.

The mechs are legit, but I fail to see how they make light mechs obsolete. There are serious trade offs for using those specialized pieces of gear.

This is an exceptionally vulnerable heavy.
Liar!!! It's full of endo steel!!!

Also light mechs are nice. They are likely to do their job and come back.

Heh, even without the endo steel you can see the point I was making. All that endo steel is why it carries little in the way of armament (for a mech of its size).

Even still,that armament and level of armor will spank a light mech, while still having a comparable speed, that was exactly my point.

Which makes it, what, a light mech hunter at the expense of being worse against those of its own weight class? Seems fair. There's a reason people balance by tonage.

Well the xfactor is cost. Light mechs are cheaper, but is cost going to be a factor?

Makes me want to play Chromehounds again. Kind of lame that From does so much Armored Core shit instead of more Chromehounds.

Just imagine how much fun we'll have beating Ghostbear at this game? "Man, isn't your nick from this franchise? Shouldn't you be better at it? Why is your mech on fire?"

The hair-band 80's rock made was making me go "meh" the first time I watched this, but when I turned off the sound, it looked pretty good. It's funny how an awful music bed can make something seem so terrible.

Also, this isn't necessarily a bad thing, but nothing about the footage so far says that it is an online game. It looks like a single player game that might have multiplayer co-op - which would be fine with me.
