Was everybody as excited as I was today? The big launch that we've all been waiting for, finally here!
MECHWARRIOR ONLINE IS NO LONGER IN BETA!!!!!11!1!
Cue the sad trombones.
Yes, of all the days for MWO to limp onto the official scene and line up, firing squad style, for the inevitable volley of mediocre reviews, they chose to do it on what the day that what is arguably the last big game of this generation hit the streets.
Sheer. Utter. Madness.
So yeah, long story short:
– GTAV is great. It takes everything you like about the series, ratchets it up, while cutting a lot of what was holding it back.
- MWO's launch is nothing more than them peeling off the beta sticker. Seriously, no new modes, U.I, community warfare, or any of the other malarkey they've been promising for over a year now. Again, someday industry heads will use MWO as a cautionary tale, a spook story about a studio that managed to strangle their golden goose and somehow managed to alienate a fanbase that had a worse case of Stockholm syndrome than Patty Hearse.
