Armored Core

Soon enough, bro. Put it on your list for now.

Haha I definitely should. I really ought to start getting mech games for actual consoles, I have a Xbox 360 but I only have ZZ destroyer gunner for the phone

I think there are a few Armored Core games on 360, but I’m not entirely sure…

If you ever get a PS2, get Armored Core 3. This game is definitely worth your free time.
I only have a PS2, but I make the best of it.

Will definitely take note of it :wink:

In Armored Core multiplayer on the PS3 every territory is controlled by a group called Neo Zeon. Those players are obviously Gundam fans.

The only ACTUAL mech game I can be proud of to say I played was Virtual On. The only other game I’ve played focused purely on japanese mechs is ZZ Gunner on the iOS which will terminate service by the 31st of March (dafuq?!) anyone still remember this arcade classic?

It should be noted where there are giant robots, Zeon is there, even if you don’t know it.

So what are the controls for any of the Armored Core games? I’d like to know for research purposes.

Damn i love Armored Core. I actually still have the first armored core in good condition. I have almost all the armored core games, i believe i am missing one. I fell inlove with Gundam because of armored core.

I used to play V all the time but none of my friends helped me and wasn’t fun by myself so i took a break. I should get back into it tho.

I’ve played some of the Armored Core games, but currency earning system got me frustrated cause I couldn’t get better parts when I needed them to beat certain parts, so I ended up staying away from the games.

I played the heck out of AC that was on the demo disc that came with the ps1…Yea I’m THAT old lol

Hey man, I still have the Atari 2600 and an ET cart. True story.

I loved AC. I really wish the industry supported gaming culture instead of allowing EA and Activision run the shell game on folks with anti-used game sales strategies and Micro-Transaction “features” for those paltry, skill-less rail shooters. I mean, I like coin-op as much as the next guy but Level 5, Squaresoft, Enix, FromSoftware, Quantic Dream, Konami, Bandi Namco (and just Namco), NIS, Naughty Dog, etc, made art.

AC was a gem of a game. Swapping parts to fit playstyle and giant walking robots…yep! I hope someone thinks about releasing something on PS4/PS5. I mean, Hawken, Zone of Enders, and Titanfall are still popular. Steel Battalion was totally BA, even if it DID have some jacklegged controller required to play (I loved it, but I sort of find myself alone in that one). Even Anthem had a hopeful audience, so there’s no reason reviving AC wouldn’t work, and I don’t mean Assassin’s Creed.

Another game I played that was similar to AC was Front Mission Evolved if anyone has ever played that game or any of the others.

Front Mission was a fav for a long time.

I played AC 2, 4, for answer, and V. I don’t remember the differences between them. Spirit of motherwill was fun though, taking out a walking city.
I couldn’t get into ACE, they do the think a lot of anime-based mech games do, where the characters have 2 voice lines that they repeat over and over.
