What's so Easy about the Big Easy?
New Orleans prepares for MechaCon and MechCorps's Mobile Armor Division, July 16-18, 2010
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of Robotech and the Robotech Convention Tour, MechCorps Entertainment, LLC is being redeployed to MechaCon VI with their world-renowned and critically acclaimed, Virtual World Tesla II BattleTech: Firestorm Cockpit Simulator Pods. Since MechCorps' first deployment to MechaCon IV in 2008, hundreds of raw recruits were introduced to the exhilaration of piloting a 70-ton, 3-story tall robot armed to the teeth with lasers, missiles, cannons and all manner of weaponry to take on all foes... including friends. The pods are fully enclosed military style simulators that feature 7 screens, over 90 control systems, and a 12 speaker surround sound system. When seated in the cockpit, the player pilots their own walking tank known as a BattleMech onto the virtual landscape to compete for battlefield superiority with those seated in surrounding cockpits.
During MechaCon VI, new pilots will be inducted, old pilots will be brought up to speed to prepare for the Main Event on Saturday, July 17th. The Mecha Gunslinger sponsored by Robotech.com will be a double-elimination dueling event where pilots will battle each other for prizes and the honor of being promoted to Mecha Sheriff and Deputy of the region.
