    <p>RPS reports the <a href="http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2010/08/18/making-the-cut-jagged-alliance-online/#more-36301" target="_blank">return of tactical turnbased combat</a> in the form of Jagged Alliance Online, a browser-based MMO.</p>
    <blockquote>
    <p>Jagged Alliance Online will be built around the familiar Jagged Alliance games mechanics, which are a mixture of turn-based battles and real-time action. The player takes control of a group of soldiers, commanding them from an isometric perspective to complete tasks in order to earn cash as well as renown. If a player wants to stay on top, mercenaries will need to be trained and equipped with better weapons. If that&rsquo;s not quite enough, then mercenaries can be borrowed from friends or alliances can be formed with other players.</p>
    </blockquote>
    <p><a href="http://www.jaggedalliance.com/index.php?id=25&amp;L=1" target="_blank">Here's the feature list:</a></p>
    <ul>
    <li>Tactical Turn based Action in 3D isometric graphics with parameterized maps for fresh challenges</li>
    <li>Management of mercenary company with extended RPG system </li>
    <li>Synchronous and asynchronous online PvE, co-op and PvP </li>
    <li>Build up your own HQ </li>
    <li>Players can choose to accept campaigns, which are essentially a string of missions on a specific map that need to be resolved within a given time frame.</li>
    <li>Players can support other&rsquo;s campaigns by renting mercenaries for a certain amount of time and can also bolster their roster by using their ally&rsquo;s mercs. </li>
    <li>The game can be played as a normal browser game, managing mercenaries and sending them on missions or players can dive into the action on the tactical map, improving their chances and rewards.</li>
    <li>The game has three core layers of gameplay:<br />o The tactical map, where players control their mercs directly in turn based/real time combat.<br />o The management level, where players run their company, rent out mercs and choose missions or campaigns as well as build up their HQ facilities.<br />o The social layer, where players may support or fight others on campaigns or missions. </li>
    </ul>
    <p><em>thanks Quilty!</em></p>

    I fucking wept when I saw this.

    So now we'll have twelve year old fans of Fallout 3, Desu Ex AND Jagged Alliance who don't have an idea about the original games but modern gaming allows them to shit all over my childhood.

    Fuck that, GRABBIN' PEELS AND CHAINSAW, COMMENCE SLAUGHTER.

    That's the last straw, I don't even care anymore.

    Gaming is dead to me.

    So there finally is a reason to visit Gamescom. I might just do my best Reuban impersonation for you. :salute:

    That doesn't make sense...

    I suppose they mean TB can be turned on and off? But how in a MMO?

    Or maybe they just don't know what the fuck they're talking about.

    There are people out there who think that V.A.T.S. is turn-based.

    It's likely just a list of PR buzzwords, you know, like when the new XCOM people talk about X-COM. Would be easy to ignore if games weren't actually designed by using PR buzzword lists as basis for the design docs lately.

    Maybe you run around in RL and when the fighting starts it's TB?

    Goddamn, stop making me acknowledge this abomination.

    What? Did you guys even play Jagged Alliance? You move in real-time until you encounter a combat scenario. I'm pretty sure that's what they mean... also I still believe that this is just a cover and in reality they're making JA3. It has to be. This can't be true!!
