Is its torso turned around or does it just have bird legs?
I think it's just bird legs. The old legs just made it look silly, like someone in a duck suit.
Really considering the Jenner myself, I see myself more of a Stalker player which basically fulfills both the catapult and Atlas rolls in one place. I'm not a huge fan of the Hunchback as a medium either, sooo That kind of leaves the Jenner and hits hit-and-run tomfoolerly. I really hope you can play with the individual mechs before being locked into a choice.
Unless they do changes to LRM's, picking a Catapult would be a terrible choice.
So I still have my old Steel Battalion controller, maybe I should dust it off and play MWO with it. I don't know if the joysticks would be accurate enough to use over the mouse though, but it would be hard to beat the authenticity..
