I know this game didnít get much traction around here, but itís now on Steam with an Early Access bundle!  You get a bunch of mechs and gear and cosmetics and stuff for $30.

Oh, and thereís a new Steam Launch trailer as well thatís pretty sweet if I do say so myself.   

Maybe worth a look if you didnít get your Titanfall beta invite or donít like Origin.  slywink

How much more useful is the $30 Nemesis bundle compared to the (currently) $10 Starter one?

The Nemesis bundle is a way better deal overall, but they each have unique mechs.  Hawken is a sort of a class-based shooter, so a lot of the game is about finding the type of mech that you enjoy the most or play best in different situations, and that can be easier with 9 mechs than 3.  The bonus currencies in the Nemesis are also very useful for kitting out other parts of a mech right away, or unlocking alternate weapons.

In the Prosk Starter you have a sniper, a cloaking stealthy assassin and a beefy assault/defense type.  The Nemesis has a range of classes from healer, sniper, suppression fire, aggressive front line, long range support, and good all-around assault.

Either way, there are also 3 rotating test drive classes of mech every week as well, so you can try out others for free over time to see if you like them.

My personal favorite classes would probably be the Berserker, Technician, Rocketeer and Vanguard (and the starter mech everybody gets).  But the Sharpshooter is one of the most popular, and I know guys who almost exclusively play Infiltrator.
