MechWarrior Online exists, I've come to terms with that

With Steel Battalion: Heavy Armor now in the rear-view mirror and Hawken shining brightly on the horizon mechs seem to be experiencing something of a resurgence as of late. And now that your turret arms' sights have been set both high and low, why not train your eye on something that appears to be aiming for that oh so uninteresting middle ground? Here's a video for free-to-play MMO MechWarrior Online. Watch it. Or do anything else.

This developer diary features Russ Bullock of Piranha Games listing the title's innovative innovations which include: immersive combat, tactics, classes and online play. So yeah, it's a game about mechs that you can play. Now I'm as big a fan of giant robotic machines beating the crap about of each other as the next guy, but MechWarrior Online doesn't look like it's going to set the world on fire. But hey, at least the PR people seem to be excited. The press release had this to say about the bread flavored game: "It’s a thing." That I cannot argue with.
