This is the obligatory sentence in which I ramble on about how Hawken is remarkably pretty for an independent PC game. Seriously, have you seen this mech combat title in motion? It almost seems too good to be true, but talent combined with the ever-improving Unreal Engine means these visual feats are achievable.
Adhesive Games says this story teaser trailer should help remind us that Hawken hasn't been abandoned. (Making videogames isn't easy -- who knew?) For the most part, the team is "remaining quiet and focused until we have some worthwhile announcements to make." Sounds good to me.
