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?

This appeals to me.

How does it play?

This prompt responses in me that are normally reserved for Bubblegum Crisis.
Is there more?

>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.
