Honestly, I always felt that Rifts had better mechs than Battletech. Too many blocks with holes drilled in them from the latter, I guess.

I remember in High School we did a Rifts game based on Gundam X and everyone thought it was the shit.
Mostly cause only the GM knew what Gundam X was cause he pirated the show off Kazaa or some shit and we were totally blew away.

Anything has better mechs than Battletech. But yeah, Rifts is pretty cool.
>>
>>10984588
Fucking love it.
>>
>>10984793
>not loving ugly, blocky, superchunk mechs
>>
>>10985052
Not so much hating blocky mechs, but the fact that at the time, so many of Battletech's were poorly done. Random panel shapes and everything was just a round hole or stubby barrel sticking straight out with no articulation.
>>
>>10985052
>liking shit mechs
Not surprising from Battletech fans, though.
>>
These are some sweet-looking mechs.

Is there anything smaller and/or self-operating?
>>
>>
>>10988332
Most Rifts mechs are only about 20ft tall as it is. Power Armor goes from wearer-sized to 10 ft. at the tallest.

There's also Robot horses like this baby here, which is more of a deluxe model.
>>
>>10988358
Here's a Unicorn-style model. The horn is a silver-plated vibroblade, on the off chance you get attacked by vampires or demons while out on a ride.
>>
>>10984735
Did you re-enact the plot of the show or was it more about the lead-up to the world getting fucked before the series starts?

Speaking of Biotech, "Splicers" is another Palladium game best described as "Guyver vs The Terminator": Army of robots tries to wipe out humanity and humans fight back with bio-tech.
>>
Host Armor is one of the key weapons in the Resistance's arsenal. It's pretty much Bio-Booster armor with a wider variety of shapes and weapons.
>>
A Swarmlord. Think Shino from Naruto, or that bee guy form Ninja Scroll on steroids.
>>
War Mounts are pretty much bio-engineered monsters ridden into battle. Their roles range from cavalry transport to artillery to frontline combat and air support. In addition to being tough enough to tear apart a tank (because sometimes they have to), they often have the same bio-weapons as Host Armors.
>>
Dogs are Man's Best Friend, and Packmasters continue that legacy with genetically-engineered hounds.
>>
Gorehounds are spliced from various dog breeds crossed with an alien form.
>>
Yes, another word for "Alien Form is "Xenomorph". Why do you ask?
>>

>>10988758
This appeals to me.

How does it play?

>Rifts had better mechs than Battletech.

Totally true, that. Too bad the game sucks. Still, some fairly keen mecha.

>>10989082

It is an AWFUL game system. :-(
>>
>>10989082

we're talking about rifts here. it's basically as outdated as bt, but it never had a playable core to begin with.
>>
>>10989082
Honestly, I never had the chance to play myself, just liked the setting. As you can see, I've heard it's pretty bad, but it still has its fans.
>>
>>10990594
Plenty, but I can't post until later.
