A grim trailer for Armored Core: Verdict Day


With some bonus screenshots

Although the name may suggest otherwise, Armored Core: Verdict Day is a full installment, not some continuation of AC V. As we heard earlier from Keith, developer From Software is emphasizing a three-faction war that will be... read
A three-faction war rages on

Mecha action brought up to speed

Can you spare $100,000? For mechs?

How does next week sound for Iron Brigade on PC?

Last week, we headed down to Nvidia headquarters and got our first look at the free-to-play, Cryengine3-powered Mechwarrior Online from Piranha Games. I got to chat with the game's creative director, Bryan Ekman, and he told ... read feature


The MechWarrior property is an oldie. Perhaps even unrecognizable to some, as there hasn’t been a proper entry in like ten years; I know it in name and concept only, having seen box art or occasional screens. Accordingl... read feature

Jenner mech revealed for MechWarrior Online

First look at Caustic Valley map in MechWarrior Online

MechWarrior Online founder's program detailed

I know the free-to-play nature of MechWarrior Online turned some of us away early on, but the game looks rather good, visually speaking. Surely that and the brand are reason enough to check out the closed beta, which you can ... read

Gaikai to offer Hawken prior to its full launch
