People were once so excited about Hawken. It looked awesome, it had a wonderful visual design to it, and then...well, then it went free-to-play, and it didn't have singleplayer, and that kinda took the wind out of a lot of people's sails. A shame, but hey, the game still looks great, people are playing it, and the art…
An employee at Hawken developer Meteor Entertainment had only one real gripe about her job: Their office featured a poster of a scantily-clad lady mechanic, and it bugged her to death. She says her boss, Meteor CEO Mark Long, loved the poster. She did not.
No, I think I was right the first time. If you see the new Technician mech on the enemy's team, kill it. If it's on your team, hug it. If it's you, then congratulations, you're a helper. Way to help. Want to see pics of the new map you'll be dying on?
Nvidia's good at blowing stuff up. In this video, we can see them apply that to games—in this case, Adhesive Games' currently-in-open-beta mech shooter, Hawken. From rock chunk-clouds and swirly, shiny particles to full-scale level destruction, it's all there, and it all looks fabulously chaotic (and crazy fun).
The recent launch of Path Of Exile's open beta—a new hack & slash action RPG known especially for its enormous skill tree, as you can see in the pic above—inspired us to collect some of the best looking skill and research trees spanning a variety of genres. It's interesting to see how creatively devs can handle this…
When Adhesive Games' creative director and co-founder Khang Le took the stage during last night's Nvidia press conference to play the free-to-play mech combat game Hawken on Nvidia's Project Shield handheld, I was confused. This was not the PC game. What the hell was that? Turns out Nvidia ran out of time to mention…
There are three main gaming platforms. The PC, the mobile or ‘smart' device, and the dedicated games console. Looking worldwide, two out of three are now dominated by free-to-play.
I've been unfair to giant mechs and the people who love them. If you asked me about mechs a week ago, I'd probably make some awful comment about how mechs remind me of little boys clacking their action figures together, which isn't appealing to me. I didn't "get" the love for giant mechs.
There have been some secret alpha tests going on for a while now, but a much wider pool of people will finally get their hands on mech shooter Hawken when it kicks off a closed beta on October 26.
Like almost every other game set in the future, multiplayer mech shooter Hawken looks bleak. Pollution, dark skies, it just seems a generally unpleasant place to spend any amount of time.
Hawken looks good enough as it is. But the prospect of playing the game using a virtual reality headset seems too bananas to be true.
Directed by Gears of War art director Jeremiah O'Flaherty and starring the guy that played Darwin in X-Men First Class, this teaser trailer for the 2013 web series based on indie mech game Hawken is nearly as impressive as the actual game.
When indie multiplayer shooter Hawken burst onto the scene last year, people went bananas. They're still going bananas. But here's the thing: it's just a multiplayer shooter. Most of us haven't even played it. So why all the excitement?
Khang Le is the boss of Adhesive games, the studio behind the promising Hawken, a multiplayer mech shooter on PC. But he's not just the boss.
For more than a year now Adhesive Games' indie PC mech shooter Hawken has tantalized us with breathtakingly gorgeous scenes of giant robot carnage amidst dystopian cityscapes that combine anime sensibilities with Moebius-level intricacy and detail. The aesthetic has won us over time and time again, but what of the…
Does upcoming multiplayer shooter Hawken need a story? It's multiplayer-only, so maybe not. I know I liked it better when I could pretend it was just based on some obscure, bleak manga where the only things that mattered were money and staying alive.
As short as the world is on decent multiplayer mech games, I think the main reason so many people have been so excited for Hawken is the look of the thing. Taking a cue from awesome Japanese model series Maschinen Krieger, its dirty, megacity take on the future would look amazing in a blockbuster, let alone something …
