If you've always wanted to have more automatons in your DOTA experience, then I may have just the thing for you. AirMech Arena is a fast-paced free-to-play MOBA that puts you control of giant killer mechs that can transform into vehicles like a military jet or helicopter. And it's coming out for the Xbox 360 this…
In AirMech, you play as a robot that transforms into a plane. You play from a top-down view. You can shoot stuff up, treating it like an arcade game, but it's a real-time strategy game.
So last year, a few of us got our hands on AirMech, and thought it was pretty special. It's like classic action/strategy game Herzog Zwei got into Macross cosplay in a big way.
Tucked away at this weekend's Penny Arcade Expo was indie game AirMech, a real-time strategy title that looks a hell of a lot like a spiritual sequel to Herzog Zwei. Don't know it? It's not only of the earliest real-time strategy games, it's one of the best multiplayer experiences on the Sega Genesis.
