The Week In Games: Giant Robots!

MechWarrior 5 headlines a week filled with smaller games and ports. I know a lot of folks are pumped for MechWarrior 5 and I hope it’s great!

I never played any of the MechWarrior games, but I did play a lot of MechAssault on Xbox. I also remember watching people playing MechWarrior 4 on G4, which was one of my very first experiences with televised esports. I found a clip of the show on YouTube. It’s not great.

Beyond a new MechWarrior, there’s not a lot of big stuff coming out this week. We are squarely in the middle of December, which means things are getting quiet. But Ashen is heading to more platforms, Hades is coming to Steam and a bunch of new Shovel Knight games and ports are hitting nearly every platform you can think of, including the Vita and 3DS. Reset the “Days Since a Vita Or 3Ds Release” counter to 0.
