« on: December 07, 2007, 11:19:55 AM »
FASA Founder Acquires 'MechWarrior,' 'Shadowrun' and 'Crimson Skies' Licenses

Quote
FASA founder Jordan Weisman has bought back the rights to MechWarrior, Shadowrun, Crimson Skies and the other properties of the FASA catalog after the recent closure of the FASA Interactive studios by Microsoft. Weisman also launched Smith & Tinker which now owns the licenses, and while it is too early to announce future plans, the goal is to surprise and delight old fans, while welcoming new fans to these fantastic worlds.

I'm Ready for MECHWARRIOR 5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! >:D :happy: :silly: :)

I still remember their (really old) pen and paper RPG/boardgame that had no concept of dodge or saving throw. Just pray opponent action isn't successful.

To celebrate, I'll be hosting a MegaMek game soon (if it works). Latest MegaMek version here:

http://sourceforge.net/project/downloading.php?groupname=megamek&filename=MegaMek-v0.32.2.zip&use_mirror=nchc

First planned game is purely IS 3025/26 tech for nostalgia's sake. Will post details soon.

Megamek test...pitted my Locust 3V and WASP 1A3 vs two Urbanmechs (bot)...I got massacred :(


That's the original meadow map that came with BTech the boardgame...This is as classic as it can get.

Yes speed vs firepower test...I just ran across the map like crazy pero inabutan pa rin ng AC :)

Galing na ng MegaMek, very polished and talagang you can set up ANY scenario found in the sourcebooks. Pati tanks, mech. infantry, choppers, elementals...you name it.
