Well with MechWarrior5 due out later this year and BATTLETECH currently taking up most of what little time Khajiit has to spare for games, this one thought he would create a thread for all things BATTLETECH, and by extension, MechWarrior. Khajiit suspects he will be the one doing the majority of the posting in this thread, but knows that there are some MechWarrior2 fans around here and hopes you will feel free to post here too!

Can't add much myself. Played Mercenaries years ago and I only did the occasional mission, I never played the campaign. But it was fun. I don't remember which mech I preferred but it was one of the bigger ones, obviously. I do remember I liked the machine gun/rocket combo or similar.


Look at the bright side, kid. You get to keep all the money.

Gotta love the TimberWolf! MechWarrior2 has a really good soundtrack!

Was this MechWarrior2: Mercenaries?

Nice! Khajiit wishes he had a machine that would run MW2. He only played the PlayStation version back in the day. Khajiit is sure it was a heavily watered down version but this one still loved it and would like to play it as the developers intended.

You can play MW2 and Mercs on a modern pc using MechVM. You still need the original game cds. I think the Windows version (I have the Titanium Edition, and it works on them).

Here is an install guide from their forums

Mechwarrior 4: Mercenaries is now also free to download. It is abandonware, so it is completely legal.

Khajiit believes you’ve told him about this before! Will definitely look into trying this. Only thing that makes this one hesitant is that on Amazon it appears you have to buy the game cds from individuals, which is a little unnerving.
