True,Force of arms is not the only mech game around, Age of armour, RF-Online and Xsteel as well, but force of arms so far as I can tell, is the only one that looks like it's close to battletech aka mech warrior style game, the others are all a bit to Manga style and yes I know that Batteltech was pretty much based on Robotech the  TV show / movie. for me Force of arms looks like the mech game to wait for, I also play RF-Online, ( which is a lot of fun, but it plays very different from piloting a two story 70 ton mech) i will go have a look again at Age of armor, thanks for your comments.

I consider those titles to be, simplistic in nature; whereas Force of Arms will be on the complex side of things.  My personal favorites is the Macross and Fang of the Sun series.  I know, I'm old school.

I agree that this looks like a good game and i have played one of the other games you mentioned(though  i cant remember wich) But i cant get over the fact that i like Gundam style mech fighting. It constantly nags at me that i want to have people jump int a big robot and stab and shoot the crap out of each other, but with good, realistic graphics. Not cheesy anime-style ones.

Thanks!

As for new screenshots, going to hold off until we get the shaders worked out. 

I wished that I could give a release date of a live launch or Beta, but indications are aligning up that we should have something ready to be tested openly in three months.  Not a Beta test, just a take a look, fight and what do you think, kind of thing.

but too bad eXteel isn't in a persistant world. and what's the point in having a mech game if you can't come out of it and there's nothing smaller than you? you'd might as well just be a steriotypical space marine with alot of armor

Well the only other alternatives are RF online, age of armour and MechQuest, it would be nice if Exteel let you hop out of your mech and walk a round in a 3d lobby of some sort or even a persistent world, but I'm hoping that Force of arms will cover the lot and make our mech dreams come true.

Battletech came out a year before Robotech. Sorry to burst your bubble.

Now if you are referring to Macross it came out 2 years before mechwarrior.

Regardless both franchises were created independently without one influencing the other.

Macross/Robotech is an anime stylized universe while Battletech is very technical. one was developed as a tv series. the other was developed as a hex based wargame.

While over the years both franchises stole artwork from each other, that is where the similarities end.

I really didn't mean to offend you, I typed it in a joking way.

You didn't contradict me, but the 1st product they put out was a tabletop game. The company that made macross was a different company than Robotech, it was bought out.

Regardless both franchises were created independently without one influencing the other.

Yea it's slightly contradictory

Macross/Robotech is an anime stylized universe while Battletech is very technical. one was developed as a tv series. the other was developed as a hex based war-game. -good job, we wouldn't want to get confused on this issue.

This was to point out the 2 genre's are completely different both from a desighn pov and as well as artwork. Very little from either one would work well in the other, as one is an anime and the other is a realism based hex wargame.Comparing the two is rather like comparing allpes to oranges.

Here try these links;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robotech

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macross

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BattleTech - read the bit under Original game

yes I see it says some artwork was copied from macross/robotech.....which I already stated.

Hope I didn't burst any of your bubble's.

I have no bubbles to burst....sorry.

OP  7/30/08 9:29:15 AM#17

I see where my original comments from might have confused you, since I tended to lump Macross(1983) in with robotech: the macross saga(1985) in together and called them both just Robotech and then said that Battletech was born of Robotech.

ok,

1983- The Super Dimension Fortress Macross

1984- Battletech game by FASA

1985- Robotech: The Macross saga

1985- MechWarrior rpg by FASA

.

.

1989- Mechwarrior (video game)

. and so on...

So really what your saying is that battletech didn't come from robotech it came from Macross and since we both already agree that Macross and robotech are both anime, while battletech had a more western style,( and No I don't mean the American wild west) background and two separate storylines, they did indeed "share" the same art work when it came to mech design, until FASA was told leave'em out or get sued.

So this has what to do with my comments and conversation from my post five months ago which was a reply to the person who had already answered my question in the first place.

So sir, if I was to give you some advice about how to join in on a conversation, I would suggest;

1) Join in when the conversation is actually going on,( check the date of the post )

2) Stay on topic,(( check the thread title) and yes in this case the thread was open, since the original reason for the thread was already answered.)

3) Don't quibble about mute points that were made five months ago and don't really relate to the comments made in the conversation at that time,( particularly if you prefer more nicer replies to your posts)

Sorry about nitpicking.

I'm horrible about looking at post dates, I usually just read threads based on activity.

Sorry about the tone of my posts, I'm a pretty big Robotech & Mechwarrior fan so sometimes I forget my manners.

No problem, so what games do you play at the moment, were all still waiting for Force of Arms, but if you like mech games you should have a look at Exteel, might not be Mechwarrior or robotech, but it's still an excellent mech game.

I curently play, LOTRO, DDO, Hellgate: london,(while it still up and running), Exteel, SotnW, Florensia are the only ones installed at the moment, I do have access to any game I want,( just need time to download and update )

Any person who can admit there mistake is worth knowing in my books.

Hm...Excellent mech game, I'll have to try it out,.

I played and discarded LOTRO,DDO, & HGL already.

I'm currently between games ATM, I'm waiting for JGE, PW, & Atlantica online to start up again.

YAY  I got another star!
