Fans of giant armored assault suits beating each other up will be excited to see the new video released by Roadhouse Interactive. Featuring the guys from the No Guts No Galaxy podcast, the two hour long (yes it’s really that long) video shows off Roadhouse Interactive’s new BattleTech inspired turn-based strategy game, MechWarrior Tactics. The video offers a slow paced, but very detailed look at the mech loadouts, gameplay, and economy of MechWarrior Tactics in its current closed beta form.

You can of course, sign up for the closed beta by visiting the official site. If you are too impatient for that (perhaps because you just spent two hours watching gameplay instead of playing) you can purchase a founders pack for immediate access here.

Thanks PC Gamer.

    he developers made the UI with a tiny, tiny font and sometimes the text is a similar color to the panel behind it.

    I tried talking with the site staff in the first stage of the closed beta. They basically laughed at me for having a 4:3 monitor. They told me to buy a bigger monitor or zoom in if I couldn’t read the text. I filed a support ticket and they only said they’d relay my feedback to the developers.

    Then, I got an email from Mechwarrior Tactics that they’d updated the game and moved into the second stage of the closed beta. In the release notes they said they made some text easier to read. I gave the game another shot. and they didn’t enlarge any text at all.. nor is any of it any easier to read. I still can’t play.

    So, I went back to the forums and asked for the text to be enlarged again. I was told to run the game in a higher resolution or upgrade my monitor again. I filed another support ticked stating my case again. My feedback was completely ignored again. In this process I was also told, pretty bluntly, that the development team wouldn’t likely increase any of the fonts and that they worked hard designing the user interface.

    So, guy, have fun NOT playing this game. Apparently the development team doesn’t care that people that are using 4:3 monitors can’t read the text. They don’t want our kind to play their game. They designed it to run only on widescreen flat panel monitors at a high resolution. If your monitor is a CRT or if you run at 1024×768 or 1152×864 or 1200×900, then they don’t want you to play their game. They spent a lot of time designing the game for people that aren’t us and they aren’t willing to change it.

    I got into the ALpha on through Closed Beta, and it was a pain to get in and enjoy the game. Loading times are insane, the UI freaks out, and sometimes you get stuck at fetching data. Sadly the most painful ordeal was actually in outfitting your mechs individually. Anyone know if they’ve worked it out yet?

      This is true, but I’ve always liked supporting the developers and the games I really enjoy.
