I Just want a fricken Fleshed out Mechwarrior experience that has not had corners cut to make it on the free to play arena.
DCS : Mechwarrior anyone ?
Ooooo.... Interesting thought! Of course, significant portions of the DCS user community would probably overheat at a flight sim that makes educated guesses at classified aspects of the latest fighter aircraft. I can only imagine the meltdown that would occur if somebody seriously pursued injecting battlemechs into DCS World / Combined Arms. Would be a blast though, on a properly labeled server.
Of course, the Intellectual Property / licensing issues render that idea essentially moot for the forseeable future.
As for corner cutting, I guess we'll just have to wait and see. A lot of that comes down to the eye of the beholder, and what you expect such a game / sim should have. It seems pretty safe to say that the developers are hard core MechWarrior / BattleTech fans. They seem pretty determined to do it right. If the income keeps rolling in, I suspect they will address almost everything in due time.
