hurray battletech!

I haven't listened to the podcast yet but I have it queued for my morning walk. I hope you mentioned MegaMek and MekWars. As an avid btech fan, it's about the only way I can play these days because it's hard to get a tabletop game together sometimes.

MegaMek and MekWars

MegaMek and MekWars I completely forgot as I was do excited to talk about the game. Truth to be told, there's so much to tell about the game that it's almost impossible to fit all of it in one episode even in a very superficial level.

Great show, it's good to know there are other fans of Battle Tech out there! Do you also play MechWarrior Online and howndonyoi feel about the latest entry in the Mech Warrior single player game?

MechWarrior online

I haven't played MechWarrior online or the new BattleTech computer game (although the latter one is on my list of things to try out at some point). I love seeing new games coming out for the BattleTech world and getting new fans into BattleTech universe.
