    Anyone else going to play this?

    First impression; I like it! Played one skirmish and got spanked but I did down one on their mechs...

    Edited for second impression; I'm unusually invested in my mechs... I keep yelling at the computer. Very much enjoying it.

    Some notes: saved often; do not be afraid to start another campaign; manage your cash wisely.

    Fifth campaign and I seem to be doing okay... finally.

    Won my first multiplayer match! Custom lance (Locust, Centurion, Battlemaster and King Crab). Oh that makes me happy! 5th game... and finished it off with a Death From Above.

    I think I've finally learned all of the basics...

    I still quite like the music and the voice acting (some of the characters just make me laugh).

    Just finished the campaign... I'm happy with it. Now I can continue being a mercenary and build up my reputation with the other houses.

    Allies with all the houses now. My mech lance is 2 Atlas's, 1 King Crab and 1 Highlander. They all have LRMs that do extra stability damage... maxed out pilots. They hurt enemies. Quickly.

    Urban Warfare is fun! I like that they optimized code to make the game work even smoother than before and it handles more objects (buildings go boom). Stray fire is fun (no friendly fire, just works against enemies and surroundings). Filtering the navigation by biom and difficulty level is a nice addition too.

    Yeah, just liking it a lot.
