This has generally been untouched as far as i know of, excluding the gundam mmo (which closed like 3 years ago) in japan and the mecha shooter Exteel.

The past....there it goes.....wait what was the question?

 

It's better to lurk in forums and be thought a fool...than to endlessly "Quote" and remove all doubts.

I, too, would love to play a steampunk style mmo.  Closest I've found was Neosteam, but the steampunk there, from what I saw, was less a part of the game system and more just a small influence on the art style...a very small part.

Oh, Arcanum.  Buggy as hell, but what an amazing game from Troika.  God rest that developer's soul.  I would have loved for that game to take off and become a franchise.

Well they've got something similar to Mecha in the works

and

Might not have the depth but its a start anyway. We will see how it goes,

Yeah I have heard about this, but the problem is the western style mechs just aren't cutting it out for me, it looks like the wind can topple them over. I'm imagining something more Armored Core like maybe or idk. But these chicken legged walkers..there just..bleh.

Why hasn't anyone tapped the mechwarrior concept.

i swear to god you could port all things in EVE to mechwarriors, have the same mechs do the same thing as the ships in EVE but now you have to code an actual background. I think it could be done.

I'm surprised no one has done it.

I've read a few posts/articles around the web concerning this very idea, I think that would be sick as hell..but didn't the mechwarrior franchise die? Don't think any games are gonna come out for it anymore now that they canceled mechwarrior 5.

Fantasy has long since dominated the RPG and MMORPG markets, being the standard setting of role-playing games on paper

When I look back at all the pnp rpgs I have played over the years very few where fantasy. Sure the first one I played 20 years ago was fantasy (Drakar och Demoner) but after that it has been a long string of non-fantasy games. Not all sci-fi (there where for example a western game we played for a fair amount of time) but very little fantasy.

And it's just not taste but based on what where on the market in sweden back then. There where only 2-3 fantasy games but a lot of non fantasy.
So to say that fantasy are the standard in pnp rpgs I find false.

Yup, Planetside keeps coming back to mind for me. Such a simple gameplay environment, such an awesome gameplay experience. It proves that what developers need to do is stop trying to make the game for the players, and just give the players the ways to make the game.

How far we have come, Phantasy Star Online released in 2000 “Relying heavily on instancing and randomly-generated dungeons”. It seems that the new crop of SF MMO’s; STO, GA and STOR will be doing exactly the same half baked effort to be a true online world.

Earth and Beyond, was another EA game that did not live up to the expected profit margin, so straight to the bin.

CoX could be called a SF game, but it is a supers, so that’s streaching it, loved the game though.

I loved Planetside, it was the one game where you could really play massive online battles with or without vehicles, and where teamplay really mattered. It was fun to just log in for an hour or so, you didn't need to spent ages leveling just to be able to do something. Would love to play a new game like that......

 

Hellgate London had it's charms. Found it too repetitive though.

Eh, Perpetuum Online which has already been noted, is such alike EVE (example 1, 2 and 3) that you could claim they are trespassing on CCPs intellectual property.

I just wish they would develop Planetside 2. Planetside is still The best mmofps (or action game) ever made even if it still lacks all the basics we are used to in other games, like meaningful guild stuff, crafting etc.

And of course, why the hell did they shut down Earth and Beyond?

Interesting article for someone who doesn't know the history of Sci-Fi MMOs, good read.

We need more of them... Mechwarrior MMO (one can dream)

What about Earthrise? It will be out far sooner than SWTOR, and is more similar to EVE.

I am glad this article mentions Earth & Beyond which launched on September 24, 2002 only a year behind Jumpgate and before Eve-Online. It was the first sci-fi game with a deep compelling storyline that had to be discovered.

In another first, Earth and Beyond was the first popular online game that was deliberately allowed to die by its owner who never added any additional content. Who was that owner you ask? None other than EA who bought out this game's developer, Westwood Studios, a few months before launch.

I miss Earth & Beyond as well.

Or Shattered Galaxy? 

Regarding a Mechwarrior MMO, there was always Battletech 3025, which EA canned: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jcq6tGgxzEQ&feature=related
