Hawken: You will shit bricks
Is it District 9? Is it mechwarrior's cool, young cousin? Is it one of Ukita Kumuki's dark cyberpunk paintings come to life?
No! It's Hawken!
I don't know about anyone else, but ever since Exteel went six feet under after jumping the shark like some bastard child of Demopan and Gundam SEED, I've been hankering for giant yet slightly believable metal machines and the gigantic cannons that shoot them to tiny bits.
Is Hawken that game? I certainly like the design aesthetic, less mechanical super samurai and more functional walking tank. Tigsource (whom I first saw this trailer from. Big up, you guys!) has already noted there will be deathmatch and team deathmatch modes. How much will we be able to customize our stompy doom generators? How will the balance play out? What's the price point? How much content will be available?
