Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines

I have loved playing World of Darkness (or I guess it is Chronicles of Darkness now), so when I noticed this 2000’s video game on sale from Steam, I could not resist picking it up. Although it has its share of bugs and issues, it is still a pretty great game; just make sure you go get the unofficial patch before you start.

Ok, let’s rap for a second, guys.  We all know that giant robots are both large and robotic, and that, in MechWarrior Online, by PGI Games, they’re also just absolutely covered in weapons.  Now, if you’ve been following this weekly column then you know that there are different sizes of ‘Mechs and that different weapons are effective at different ranges.  These two facts, combined with the varying speeds your giant robots can achieve through the use of different engines means that ‘Mechs can serve a number of different roles on the battlefield.

The role of your ‘Mech is primarily determined by three factors: Size, Speed & Loadout.  Since these three factors are really the only variables in MechWarrior Online that means that the previous sentence was kind of pointless.  It’s ok though, keep reading, we’re gonna get to the actual meat in just a second.  The important thing to know here is that your role determines your strategies and how you should pilot your ‘Mech.  Know your roles and you will immediately see an improvement in your game!  Well, theoretically, anyway.
