外围体育投注Armored Core was a niche but well-respected mecha fighting/shooting franchise by From Software that went for 5 games during the 2000s to 2013, with double the amount in spin-offs. From Software moved to a Soulsborne focus once Bloodborne and Dark Souls became popular, and they haven’t made anything Armored Core in years. However, it’s not simply just a case of the popularity of Dark Souls that led to this; Armored Core was getting received worse and worse. Average reception from AC 1-3 was a solid 8/10 most of the time. By the last few games, many big reviewers were giving the games 6s on average.
To me, I see a series that was stuck with a 2000s PS2-era formula that never fully evolved even when it had the chance with ACV. Meanwhile, a game like Monster Hunter, which ticks off all the similar points of it being niche and respected, got Monster Hunter World, a masterclass in accessibility while not actually changing the core of what makes the game likeable. You’ve also got the example of Ace Combat 7, which while not actually doing anything different from what it had already been doing before, still brought a solid foundation into the current era.
So. Armored Core. Its gameplay feels like it really could be more satisfying, and in 2020 its environments and damage system/weapon systems so much more impressive. At least to me, I can imagine what a 2020 AC looks like, it’s only on From Software to want to make one ever again though. What do you think? What improvements would have to be made for a new AC to be received well and feel modern, and do you ever see it happening?
外围体育投注Ok hear me out, Cyberpunk isn't even released yet and they got keanu reeves for pre-release popularity.
Since armored core is all about custom build mechs think whats the closest thing to it CARS, Bring in Vin Diesel+Fast and Furius cast and have him voice someone in position like Jack-O or Berlioz. Think About it ILLEGAL STREET COMBAT MECH and instant popularity to bring armored core to the mainstream and some hammy Fast and Furius plot.
外围体育投注Will this work ?
Armored Core 5 was just an experience I enjoyed so much when it came out on the xbox 360. Unfortunately mech games who rely too much on an active online community dont do well usually. I remember servers on AC5 being bassically dead like one month later. I loved to pvp battles in that game (the operator slot was not popular but i always loved when we got one in a match) but since then, I have been yearning for a good and active multiplayer mech game on ps4.
外围体育投注Sure we got hawken eventually, but that felt like too little too late. I tried Gundam Versus later on, but that was dead by the time i got it.
外围体育投注I kinda lost hope on mech games tbh...
But finally... After time and time again, I finally found one!
I was actually reluctant to try this game because every gundam game ive tried in the past was dead multiplayer wise.
But here i am 8 months late to the party and its actually alive. I can find matches without feeling like im wasting my time!
It might not have the customization of Armored Core, but its pretty much the best we can get for mech games right now, thank you GBO2, youve made one sad mecha fan very happy think weekend. :)
I've been looking around here for quite some time and commented on a few posts. I have to say, the post by u/crestind caught my interest by a rather hefty amount from his Armored Core 2 cut mission video posted here.
I'm mainly an original AC guy (not a genwunner, mind you). Heck, I've even got Nine Ball's emblem tattooed on my shoulder where his AC's would be. I am mildly experienced coding games through various engineers and one day I do hope to be able to make a spiritual continuation of the games a la AC2 levels of customization.
Enough about me, I'm going to move on to the meat of the topic. I'm interested to see what all can be unlocked through various game shark/code breaker means in the original trio of games. I know that by using the game shark's stock "Unlock All Parts" code you gain access to test weapons and legs in the first game all lovingly labeled "DUMMY". The legs are very interesting as you can see where the developers were trying to go with the 4-legged types originally and ultimately decided to make them slide instead (probably due to slopes and the unhappiness achieved with the front 2 legs sticking up into the air in a grounded animation.)
Does anyone know of any cut missions from the original series that can be accessed via such a cheating device? Maybe a way to actually see a demonstration of the unused parts? As much as I would love to comb through the memory of the game running through emulation to discover these myself, I've been tied up with a toddler who happens to desire every second of my time. Unfortunately for him, I desire every second of his too, and I'll make sure he gets sick of the dad jokes as he grows up.
TL;DR: I don't have time to see how to access cut content on my favorite game series until maybe 5 years from now so I'm up to see what you've discovered and how.
