What ever happened to games like MechAssault?

The last Mech game I have played was Chromehounds on the Xbox 360.

The online was fun in these games, I'm trying to figure out why this genre disappeared.

If done right these games could be a real hit nowadays, plus its something different.

There is a new Steel Battalion for the 360 too, you need kinect though. I loved the first game, haven't tried the new one yet.

How was chromehounds?

Chromehounds was amazing! The customization made the game in my opinion, it had a fun ranking system and the best community I have seen on Xbox live.

This Hawken game looks beautiful graphics wise, hopefully it does what Chromehounds did with the awesome customization and fun online features.

Yeah. It's an amazing experience because of the controller and the interface

Before stooping to grammar correction, ask yourself.... "Am I really stuck with nothing to say?"

Just shop around for the bundle, it's not cheap and can go for up to a grand or so. I got lucky and got one mint for 300, late last year.

But playing it on a 46" TV, with surround sound, in the dark, and with a 40 button controller..... you feel like you're there.
