Has there even been a screenshot of the mechlab released?

Kinda hard to ask about something we have no information on...

Or is "mechlab" the codename for the mod portal where players will have to pay for content created by other players...

Also, can we get the video part of the ama to be Russ/Paul or an MW5 tech demo. Getting sick of seeing MWO being played while you're discussing a different game.

Can you please ask them about sensors, cockpit, life support, gyros, actuators? Are they fixed equipment, or upgradeable?
Can they be damaged and require repair? Remember the early video, where Shadow Hawk (i think) had a faulty left arm actuator..

Different manufacturers for components? For example AC/20 "Pontiac 100" having different stats, projectiles and visuals from, for example, AC/20 "Mydron A" or AC/20 "Kali Yama Big Bore" ?

Would love to find out more about how COOP is gonna work.

Also, would be nice to find out if the game will have any decision making / RPG elements beyond "click here to choose next mission", different endings based on how you played, and character (not mech) progression?

Screenshots are all well and good, but I'd like to see some in game footage, even if it was rough, it would give us an idea of where we stand.
Also, some more advertising may be a good idea. Keeping it to the EGS an one or two publications and word of mouth is not going
to bring in more interest in a game with a notoriously small market niche.

Whats this? Ah... MW5 news.. yeah alright, wake me when it hits Steam.
Wouldnt surprise me if they butcher immersion details like cockpit effects like cracks, steam ( HAH, pun, got it? ) damaged limbs and so on for casualising and making things less... *cough* resource costly on hardware. Last part is a classic excuse to give a middle finger to awesome details which might not at all drain computing power.

If you plan on launching on PS4 and Xbox One and having cross-platform Coop, I will but it again on Epic and buy it for my kids.

it would be xbox. microsoft also does the exclusive thing with the franchise. forbidding things like linux versions and consoles not owned by ms.

when vr made its comeback they promised low cost headsets. still waiting for that to happen.
