My Review of Hawken. I actually had to reupload because of a problem exporting, so you guys only get the good one.

Awesome video @SignalWarden, thanks for posting! Hawker looks totally badass, I just put it on my radar. Like many I haven't played a Mech shooter since Mechwarrior on PC and SNES.

I was pretty impressed that you mentioned the people online were nice. That would definitely put Hawken in a place above other muiltiplayer games if that was how the game community was compared to other games like DoTA 2 :)

Also interesting they went with live action cut scenes, they looked well filmed but I don't see that a lot these days.

Looking forward to your next video!

Thanks! The live action is actually from an upcoming web series. They don't have much story in game. They are relying on a web series (which I think is being produced by Warner) and some graphic novels (I think the same team that did the GoW graphics) to tell the back story. I'm looking forward to it, but it is kind of a poor way to get story attached to a game.

And yeah, there is no community as vile as the Dota/HoN/LoL community. And I am a longtime DotA/LoL/Dota 2 player, so it's experience talking.

Thanks for explaining that, the way you cut it into the video it was pretty seamless :D

I agree with you, I would weave the narrative in the game as well.
