The Heavy Metal March of Mech Games Must ContinueS

Armored Core V just hit stores, Hawken, Reign of Thunder, and a new Mechwarrior are in the works, but is that enough? Commenter Tem Dejima doesn't think so, calling for more mighty mechs in today's Speak Up on Kotaku.

We need more mech games this generation. The current consoles (and PCs obviously) have the power to give us REAL mech games. Watching the screen shake as you walk. Bullet casings that could fit a person in them flying as machine guns blare. Mechs that actually feel like they have WEIGHT to them. We've got Mechwarrior coming, but I've never been a real fan, and Hawken looks gorgeous, but the physics look like guys with jet packs and mech skins.

I want a game that plays like this video. I'm hoping Armored Core V doesn't disappoint. I can't wait to get my hands on it.

About Speak Up on Kotaku: Our readers have a lot to say, and sometimes what they have to say has nothing to do with the stories we run. That's why we have a forum on Kotaku called Speak Up. That's the place to post anecdotes, photos, game tips and hints, and anything you want to share with Kotaku at large. Every weekday we'll pull one of the best Speak Up posts we can find and highlight it here.
