Did Titanfall kill all chances for mecha games getting AAA budgets?
>>
But Titanfall is pretty fun I enjoyed it when I got the free trial of it. It's faster than you think.
>>
Most people see mechs for what they are, dumb weaboo fodder.
>>
No, considering how aggressively the developers themselves tried to push the notion that Titanfall was not in fact a mech game in the first place. And that kind of stands to reason since it was a CoD-style FPS that didn't really have any of the mechanics of facets that you would expect from an actual mech game it's ultimately pretty safe to say that people don't really equate Titanfall with mechs period.

Mecha is Mech anime. "Mech" is just the word to describe robots of all sizes.

If you're referring to the difference of Giant Robots and Mechs, then its just a size thing. Mechs refers to any robot.

Giant Robots are by their very nature, a bad concept. It's taking the ineffective and absurd and glorifying it for no good reason.
>>
All the mech games, even the best ones, lack the single most important aspect: the feel of scale. Go download a giant robot made of some silly shit in Gmod and try to control it from it's cockpit- you'll actually feel like a 6 ft person sitting in a 80 ft heavy slow complex machine. Mecha/mech games, despite having all these tiny buildings and roads scattered around the map, don't give you the sense of scale - in MWO mechs feel like being 12-15 ft tall at best and hawken feels like a shooter with human-sized mechs.

Good science fiction/fantasy is grounded in reality, you lack that you go full retard. There is literally no reason whatsoever to produce large scale mecha, ever. You want mecha without them being shit, they damn well better be exo-suits. That's the only "mecha" worth a shit because it's the only one that makes sense. Enhancing soldiers IS something you do. Building poorly constructed humanoid vehicles with poorly designed Japanese energy swords is bad and you should feel bad for thinking it's good.

>>272564074
There is no situation in which an oversized mechanical man is more effective than a flying/dynamic wheeled mobile tank/artillery. mechs, as a weapon, are completely pointless. A tank does everything a mech could more efficiently and at fraction of the cost. And even if the setting has some super bs tech that makes a mech more efficient, that same tech could just as easily be applied to a tank or similar vehicle to make it far surpass the mech.
>>
>>272564365
yes, but I don't have fun playing games with tanks. That's the difference. If you want to talk about what works in real life, I think you're on the wrong board.

I've made this argument on /m/ a thousand times, maybe it'll stick here:

Mechs are compelling because they're a visual metaphor for the ways in which man uses his tools to wage war. A giant robot isn't a baseless excuse to shit on the laws of physics, it's man become his sword, a walking, humanoid mechanism of destruction, the same way a Greek god was a force of nature, personified.

Except we built it. And that changes everything.

I don't care how much of an edgy shitlord you are, if you saw even the silliest of Gundams bearing down on you, you'd shit your pants. It's not just a machine, it's a giant metal man with you in its literal sights.

I don't understand the appeal of japanese mechs. They all look like humans and move like humans. They don't have any fucking weight to them. There's no point in having the mech if it's essentially just an oversized human.

The whole point is that mechs are heavy and bulky. Walking tanks are so much better. It feels more like an actual vehicle then some dude in a mechanical overall.

Which kinda doesn't make sense if you gave them legs just to fight in space. You could make a more advanced fighter, or replaced those legs with more weaponry/thrusters. It's not like they accommodated mech sized tunnels just for you to walk around in, plus it's fun to just go tunnel shooting.

Mechs are a man's romance.

Romance comes in many flavors.

You seem to only have a taste for stompies, but there are also scooties, flyies and glidies.

How a mech moes doesn't change the fact it's a mech, it's just a different flavor.

Actually legs/arms are why they work in space. Instead of needing a bazillion thrusters to accommodate every single potential direction you can move/orientate in. You can basically iron man that shit.

Really they'd only be good for construction though.

Someone doesn't understand the term "psychological warfare".

Treads are easy to disable. Wheels need tires which can go flat. As long as the legs are armored, a walking-tank built properly could still be as fast if not faster than a traditional vehicle AND handle trickier and tighter terrain, having all but removed the need to reverse to make tight turns.

It died when evolve flopped because double helix were incompetent assholes who couldn't make a decent game to save their life.

I really loved Gun Hazard so the concept of a action focused Front Mission with third person on foot stuff mixed actually had me kinda excited. Also this was the first Front Mission to get released on PC, too bad the thing fucking sucked dicks.

A franchise is only as good as it's last game and when something like that flops that hard you're probably never going to see something like it ever again.

No, Titanfall didn't have a AAA budget to begin with, it was made by a team numbering in the dozens throughout most of its development, peaking at only around 70 staff when they went into crunch, it didn't cost very much to make.

Additionally, all of the marketing was bankrolled by Microsoft, EA made an absolute killing on it and a sequel is already in the pipes.

Mecha = giant robots typically from anime or Japanese styled robots
Mech = Any large type of pilot-able robot

Giant robot= Are literally that just giant robots

There are key differences in terms of design when it comes to Japanese Mechs and Western Mechs.

Japanese mechs are often sleek, humanoid, stupid fast, have a weird obsession with laser swords and drills, typically can transform, love drunken missles.

Western mechs are typically modeled more in the vein of tanks or bipedal weapons platforms and are usually plodding, chunky, have obsession with giant ass Vulcan canons and forward facing mounted lasers. Also skulls and shit.

Okay, I like mechs, but your line of thought is absolutely retarded. A walking tank would be considerably more vulnerable than a traditional vehicle because a) its profile is considerably higher making it a much easier target, b) mechanical legs would be tremendously complicated machines and thereby subject to a much wider range of potential mechanical failures than anything as simple as the wheel-and-axle, and c) if you actually armored it enough to withstand substantial amounts of damage it would make it impossible for it to move because of the weight. It's also silly to think that legs hold some sort of innate advantage when it comes to speed, considering that human reflexes would not scale up to something of that size and human locomotion is one of the most inefficient means of transportation anyway. It might be able to handle "trickier terrain", but that's progressively becoming a moot point as our capability to either annihilate or just fly over suitably difficult terrain increases.

This might be copypasta but I don't care.

This has been debated for years man, the general consensus is that they're the same thing. Japanese dudes have been making every type of mech imaginable since forever, humanoid and tank-like. The only differences are the fictional universes. (Gundam/Garasaki/Battletech/Robotech/Hawken, ect)
