This game is soooooooOOOOOOoooooo good!
It's sad that there is not much out there that can even come close to it.
It's going to be such a bummer when I finish recording it.
The author sure was bright for someone in their early 20s, sucks that he and the music composer died in 2011.
Getting back into HAWKEN as they will be releasing a new CO-OP mode within a few hours... Apparently the mech I'm using has one of the most useless abilities in the game... I feel it's the best! For not playing since alpha/closed beta, I'd say I've proven this mech to be worthy. Yet they are boosting it in this update, so hey, more awesomeness for me!
The new Predator mech looks awesome, it's like a B-class Infiltrator which still is my favorite mech. Might even come back and give it a try, haven't played Hawken since they released Ascension.
I don't see why people are crying about EOC weapons... I was reading up about how Infiltrator is 'apparently' useless without EOC and that everyone thought the ability was one of the worst in-game. So far, I'm leading the boards with 10-20 k/d radios with the assault rifle, which I like quite a bit. Also, I was scoring high even before the update and thought the ability was totally fine as-in sooo... B***hes be b***hing. Also love how many people claim it's a 'cowards' mech, even tho the best way to play it is by being highly offensive and flanking the enemy team with your ability, thus being more balls deep than anyone else in your team. Huuurrr
EOC is fine, it has nice damage if you can sneak up on someone and get all the pucks hit the target but on large distances it's pretty much useless and hitting a moving target is quite a challenge, not to mention the heat generation from this thing.
Play a Scout if you wanna see a mech that's truly OP. That mobility and fire rate is ridiculous. Unless they nerfed Scout, haven't played since last big patch.
I'm definitely gonna enjoy the Predator, it's seems like a beefed up version of Infiltrator and the Stalker ability seems really cool since it's not your typical 'cast once, wait for cooldown' ability. Plus the primary weapons look pretty cool and well suited for an ambush mech.
