In lieu of Microsoft shutting down Xblox Live! service for original Xbox titles soon, we tried to have a MA2 send off game night one last time. Unfortunately the game add ons I had for MA2 were corrupted and couldn't be re downloaded (imagine that) and I had tons of network issues trying to connect to XBL in game. Fail. Ah well. We ended up playing Halo ODST.
I do hope the new Mechwarrior game in development is able to scratch the giant fighting robots itch for me whenever it ships.
