(we never got around to making that game. Why be productive and make a game when you can be lazy and just play one?)

I was so jacked about MW2 that I bought the game in July '95 for my birthday, months before we even had a computer to play it on. Luckily at the time a good friend had a relatively modern 486/66 that we used to play Wing Commander and MW2 for hours on end.
My introduction to the tabletop original came in the form of the 3rd edition box when it was re-released in '94. A couple friends enjoyed having skirmishes with me, but we really immersed ourselves in the universe when I got my hands on the MW 2nd edition rulebook. Once they saw how the two systems crossed over with one another, they were all hooked.

A long time ago...on my mom's computer a few steps away from my room...there was MechWarrior 3. and it was good. I played the crap out of it. I never knew how to operate the mechlab, but I used all the variants and stuff. I also think I only played a few missions of the campaign, but it was still the greatest game I ever played. I had tons of fun blasting enemy mechs with my pulse lasers and my PPCs.
Before that, there was my brother Marty. and my Dad. My Dad owns a roofing company, but that's another story. Anyway, there was MW2 Titanium Edition. and apparently, it was good. (Even though the DOS version was better) My brother liked it, I think. My Dad also played a little, with Marty's help. Then Marty bought MechWarrior 3. and that was good. I had absurd amounts of fun and I got ensnared in BattleTech like a fly in a spiderweb.

I had played the game at either a con or gamestore
Played heavy while in USN
Then got into the books too
Dropped out just before the clans hit

One of my prized figures is my Crescent Hawk Pheonix Hawk LAM. (one can only dream that they would consider LAM's for MWO.

Soon after that I learned of EGA MPBT and the meaning of credit card burn out Learned of the other BT games, played them as well as played the boardgame. I have a demo/alpha of MW2 (the marauder one). That was a pain to get running. So played the BT (own 99% printed material), enough minis (primarily lead before they changed up the materials used) to sink me to the bottom of a lake, all versions of MW, MPBT EGA/Solaris (beta-AOL-Gamestorm)/3025.
As for the MPBT, was originally Davion. When it opened up on AOL (was a beta tester) pre/post flat rate fee, most of the people associated with Davion were, hmm, goons/legion. The unit I eventually joined went to House Kurita, thus to read more about Kurita and the culture in general. Before that only thing I knew of Japanese culture was from history books and Godzilla

Played MW 2 & 3 plus Mechcommander but it never quite felt the same. So now I feel thrilled that so many of the old guard will join MWO.

Asked if I had ever played. Looking at the Geo-Hex map and array of hand painted miniatures, while being a long time fan of Robotech, it was intriguing. Rolled up my first character, a fresh faced Chu-i from the Sun Zhang academy... lucked out and rolled a Warhammer for my ride. My lance was left as part of a diversionary raid, and ended up getting abandoned. Had a blast and have been hooked ever since. Been devouring all things BT for the last 23 years.
Heck, this game is forcing me to buy a new computer and actually subscribe to the i9nternet again..... darn it!
