oprainfall | MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries


MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries prepares to unleash chaos on December 10th. The game is available for pre-order now, but there is bad news for those that are not fans of Epic Games. Unfortunately, the game will be exclusive to the Epic store for 1 year after launch. There are just a few days left until fans can jump into the ‘Mech on ‘Mech action. So the launch trailer was just released to show off the game’s fiery carnage.


MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries features large, destructible environments. Pilots can tear through structures and knock helicopters out of the air. Between battles in the Mech Bay is the time to strategize and plan out your next moves. Select the right load out for the job to maximize your chances of success. You can play solo or temp up with friends via co-op. Up to three friends can join you in co-op play according to the press release.

MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries brings the return of series’ mission-focused campaign structure. Pilots get to call the shots while guiding other units that are either AI-controlled, or played by your friends. Unit leaders will choose which dangerous missions to take on, where their priorities are in the conflict zones, and how they will utilize resources earned from battle.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
