Old MechWarrior 3 Trailer
« on: July 05, 2011, 06:10:11 PM »
So, we're all familiar with the excellent MW3 intro that can be seen here:

What I found with random hungover YouTubing this morning was also quite cool in its own way:

Some of the comments on the second page and back give the story for it.  In a nutshell, this was going to be the intro until MicroProse was acquired by Hasbro and received a huge cash infusion.  It was then released as a publicity trailer and replaced as the intro with the one we already know and love, though many of the scenes were re-used.  Just thought I'd share, as I thought this was a neat find.

Yeah, I stumbled upon that as well when I was YooToobing a while ago.

MW3 is still the best imo from a single player perspective.

Mechwarrior 2 mercs was I think the better single player as far as the missions were concerned.  Story-wise Mechwarrior 3 was also pretty weak since the smoke jaguars were fighting against you with IS units and whatnot.

Yeah, in MW3 you were only a clean-up party after operation Bulldog, on a non-canon planet. Pretty boring. MW2:Mercs was awesome because you sometimes even fought in canon battles. Even regular MW2 was nice in that department, since you at least fought on canon planets and were able to follow the canon story in the mission briefings and de-briefings.

i agree. the old trailer is bit slow and less dynamic.
the release trailer catches the power of the mechs they are fighting.

I don't think anyone prefers the originally planned one over the actual released one.

Even regular MW2 was nice in that department, since you at least fought on canon planets and were able to follow the canon story in the mission briefings and de-briefings.
The Basic events of MW3 on Tranquil happened in B-tech canon, and Tranquil is a canon world (Trial by fire is a canonical story of this event). Also the basic out line of what happens in MW4 is also canon (the FC Civil war source book mentions this).
Mechcommander 1 also has some elements make it into canon, the MC interface for instance is canon (imminent crisis mentions it, and it's success in bull dog)
Ghost Bears legacy also has some canon elements (IIRC their is mention of Clan Wolf behind a raid on a Ghost bear facility), as is the old crescent hawks series has some canonical elements (like the main character and his mech)

The MW3 expansion I do not believe is canon, and I do not know how canonical the expansions of MW4 are as well. Mechwarrior 2 is not exactly canon either due to it's plot outcomes, and I do not know how canon is Mechcommander II is. MW2 Mercs is not canon either but as your one of the countless small merc units you can easily be present for some of the known events but details would be different.

Well, MW4 Mercs is Canon in you playing out the Civil War and the Jade Falcons mucking around and you going there to help Morgan Kell . .
The only canon ending is the Davion one though . .

New idea- would I be able to use an external hard drive to add RAM and/or improve gigahertz?
