    Default I need a Robot RPG

    I've been looking for a nice Robot RPG, where you build your own robot by combining different parts, and more parts can be unlocked as you progress in the game.
    Something like a RPG version of Front Mission, the closest thing I know its Medabots but its for gameboy.

    There are some threads asking this but they're all very old (the most recent one from 2008), and most of what they suggest is already shut down.

    So far the only ones that seem to be close are:
    Zero Online, which is really old, I downloaded it but the game client is not working, I'll give it a try with the support replies.

    SD Gundam Capsule Fighter, which seems to be ok, but I've read around that the player base is really low and that makes it less fun.

    I would be nice to have some suggestions, I'm not restrained to low specs

    Mech Warrior Online? Haven't played it but you might enjoy it.
    Also ZO is pretty p2w so not sure if you're gonna like it. :/

    Many people seem to enjoy Robocraft.
    I haven't played it, so I can't really tell you anything about it, but here's the link to the topic: http://www.onrpg.com/boards/threads/221501-Robocraft

    I've played Mech Warrior Online a few times since its closed beta, but I didn't really like it. Its not an RPG,
    I also started playing Robocraft a few days ago, and I like it but its not an RPG either.
    Those are more, "get in the garage and when your ready click start"

    perhaps OP can consider RF Online? this mmo has a specific robot oriented faction/race, though the 2nd faction also has robot building capabilities.

    im afraid like almost all eastern mmos, RF Online is probably also pay to win, but a lot of people seem to enjoy it anyway.
    Be warned - I am a major player of Regnum Online the mmo. I've been playing it for about 2 years and rarely go without logging in at least once a day. You can also look at good alternatives to Regnum such ase Aion online and Aika Online.

    I took a peek at it before but I couldn't tell how much of "building capabilities" does it have. I just had the impression that since its just a faction, as there are humans too, there wouldn't be much customization.
    So my question is, can you get all sorts of different parts for the robots or does it only weapons?

    erm.. well to the extent you can change the skills/equipment for your robot/character im guessing this is about as far as you can go in building your robot.

    i dont think it is a robot-constructor type mmo, though this is the list of skills ur robot character can have in RF Online :-

    Hawken and Mech Warrior are FPS, I'm looking for a RPG
    Looks like Age of Armor would be it, but its shut down now unfortunately

    I saw that page before and they look like pre-made robots that you can only equip weapons and armor on top of the robot (I can be mistaken here), but I meant a game that you can unlock parts like the torso, arms, legs, head, etc etc as you progress.
    I'm not sure such game still exists, since some old games like that shut down already, or if there are new ones out there.
    I'll give RF online a shot, but I'll keep waiting for more suggestions

    Only game I know of that allows you to actually BUILD anything is probably EVE Online. But that has ships and I don't think it has any robots in it? Maybe drones though? Sorry ;-;
