Support Cancer research and purchase the exclusive Sarah's 'Mech today!
Proceeds of this sale will be delivered to the Canadian Cancer Society.*
Ends August 20th.


Update:
MWO is breaking the 50.000$ barrier anytime soon and PGI decides to make a "Special Delivery" of the Sarah Mech early!

"Recently we launched our first ever corporate charity drive – Sarah’s `Mech! I can’t describe how surprised and truly humbled by the outpouring of support. I was expecting to raise maybe $10,000 over the course of the program. We raised $40,000 in the first 24 hours! With such a huge amount of support we’ve decided to deliver the first batch of Sarah’s `Mechs this Friday!"

"Torquemada... do not implore him for compassion. Torquemada... do not beg him for forgiveness. Torquemada... do not ask him for mercy. Let's face it, you can't Torquemada anything!"

We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.

Pretty darned cool.  I wanted to test the game a few months back but I was unable to get the game to install on my computer, much like Path of Exile.  2 games that I never got a chance to try due to technical difficulties.  For what its worth I never had a problem downloading and installing any other game from the rarest F2P title to the Triple-A MMO.

If your idea of a Sandbox is open FFA Full Loot PvP, full crafted world with minimal support for anything combat then your sandbox ideas are bad! Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!
