Been a fan of mech games since the Amiga, keeping a keen eye on this one
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

A quick question, does this take part in the battletech universe or a seperate one like Chrome Hounds. Never the less I love walking mech games and will be getting this!

I havent read up on the lore of the game, but from the looks of it they've been influenced heavily by alot of mech anime.

they even did the thing where you can zoom along the ground really fast! the battles remind me of 'Orguss 02'

Yep, I'll be buying this, I think. Especially if it's so cheap. I'm a sucker for decent mech games!

btw, this is in closed beta atm. and the release date seems to be 12-12-12

You can sign up for it but it seems you have to refer 3 other people for that (entirely clear they arent).

My referal link is (in case you are willing to use it): http://www.playhawken.com/index.php?ref=03776409
Now on the workshop!

Nah, I don't think you do. I think the refering 3 friends is for them to "reserve" your name. I did it by myself by using a old crappy email, my brothers and using my OWN gmail account by using googlemail.com instead of gmail.com. Both are the same email, but I've yet to meet a service that hasn't realized they're 1 email :P
