Stompy multiplayer robo-tactical shooter MechWarrior Online (opens in new tab) has been flip-flopping over its pending open beta for a good few weeks now. First it was kicking off on October 16th (opens in new tab) , then it was delayed (opens in new tab) , and then it didn't like the look of those teenagers so it decided to keep its giant feet indoors. Thankfully, those teenagers have now wandered off - MWO will begin its open beta (for realsies) on October 29th, or this coming Monday.
While we figure out the best method of inserting the pun 'mecha bingo' into all future coverage of MechWarrior Online, your homework for Monday is to reserve your pilot name (opens in new tab) , preferably assuming the mantle of someone from the movies. Mech Wahlberg, for example, or - my favourite - Robo with a Shotgun. Feel free to share your own names in the comments.
