Hawken (Mech Game)

This work in progress game seems to be very interesting and promising for meccha fans.

The company(Indie developers) which is developing the game is pretty new to the game business, you can check out their website here:
http://www.adhesivegames.com/
But you won't find much information about them.

I have to admit, the footage was pretty impressive since that was only a nine months built work-in-progress.

I want this game. Haven't had a good "used future" mech game since FASA went under and took Mechwarrior with them.

Looks like Adhesive Games is having a challenge for fans to show their support to the game. Completing the challenge would allow Adhesive Games to reveal their first gameplay video.

It looks...absolutely beautiful...this is what Gundam games SHOULD BE. No more of that...Dynasty Warriors crapola.

Will this be a download game, or a disc based game?

What do the mechas look like anyway? I can barely make any of them out. Everything moves so fast.

Don't think so. It's more fitting to Armored Core type of game than Gundam.

Beside, Gundam games are not only about" Dynasty Warriors crapola" you mentioned, you know.

I'm not impressed. Both the graphic and gameplay don't have anything that makes me go "Awesome!", honestly. The mecha designs are, urgh.....I'd rather having Mech Warriors or Armored Core.

From the trailer,the mecha look like old metal gear,ya,as in the one that look like jet cockpit on chicken legs with missile box replaced with autocannon.

D:
I wish the mech would be more "steel battalion sexy"

Case in point: Zeonic Front, which - aside from taking a perspective unusual for UC Gundam games - is basically 'old-school Rainbow Six with mobile suits'. A shame we're unlikely to see an updated version of it.

Well, the gameplay does remind me of Mechwarrior (which the devs did cite as an influence), and the aesthetics do fit the fiction of the game. As for the quality of both, we must keep in mind that this is an early iteration.

On another note, we also do not know if there is an actual SP campaign, or if this is something like BF1943 or Blacklight: Tango Down. In either case, we already see from the gameplay footage the existence of some form of conquest-like team battle mode - perhaps there are generators sprinkled around the map which constantly produce 'energy units'... the more of them a team controls, the more units they get every interval, with the first team to reach a specific quantity thereof winning. These units may also apparently be invested to activat turrets and other defenses (it is not clear, however, whether any team member may do this or this ability is exclusive to the designated leader).

The footage they showed at E3 was really good and looked far more refined than the earlier gameplay footage they released (and that wasn't bad at all in the first place). I'm glad they're releasing it for PC, but I'm also hoping it comes out on the 360 as well.

looks cool should be really fun to play. I remember seeing something about this a few months back.

pity the new MechWarrior got canned because of copywrite bullshit. /sigh.

This reminds me of this old PC game that was similar to MechWarrior but the suits were more the size of the elemental armor or something, for the life of me I cant remember the name. It wasn't part of the MW franchise either.

So, did the MechWarrior reboot officially get scrapped? I just thought it was in limbo due to all the copyrights being worked out.

You wouldn't be referring to Terra Nova: Strike Force Centauri, would you?

Nah that's not it. Umm.... Heavy Gear. That's what I was thinking of. That's what this game remind's me of. Geez that has to be like 15 years ago now.

I read on several gaming blogs that it had been axed, but apparently it's still in legal limbo, but not canceled.

Yeah, it's totally annoying that. Wish they could have just changed the designs in question and be done with it, but no... lets get litigation happy or something.. pssh. Gotta hate the corporate world at times.

Anyways, this game should let me get my Mech fix that I haven't had for quite a while. The world, or at least in the gameplay I've seen, looks very dirty. The dust plumes and smoke might add an interesting dynamic to game play. But I reckon it'll tick a lot of people off.
