This week on the GamingTrend Podcast Jeff Burke and Victor Grunn face off about free-to-play mech combat games. In the upcoming war Jeff has thrown in his lot with MechWarrior Online while Victor has decided to fight for Team Hawken, so each will try to convince the other to switch sides. If you prefer fantasy settings over sci-fi, Jeff also spends a few minutes talking up Baulder’s Gate: The Enhanced Edition.
