Stroggo loses his shit

If you've ever met our Stroggo (especially when he's had a few) then there's a 99% chance he's yammered to you about the Mechwarrior series. For those not in the know Mechwarrior was a sim/action mech series that dominated the late 90's. What separated it from the pack was it's emphasis on being a simulation over an action title giving the mechs a real sense of heft. The series is still held in high regard particularly the second entry, unfortunately for our resident mecha man the series has been dormant for the better part of 16 years. Piranha Games attempted to do something with the sleeping franchise but according to who you ask they might have been better off letting it lie. But in a possible attempt to undo the terrible thing they had done, Piranha announced a proper sequel a few days ago! Sadly we won't be seeing it until 2018, but the latest reports are that it's being built for VR and will have mod support. But for now you'll just have to be happy with the trailery-demoey thing they left us:
