    It looks awesome and all, and I can’t wait for the release, but can someone tell me why they decided to get rid of the light to middle weight parts and just have the clunky big mechs in 5? At least I haven’t seen a more slim one yet..

      Toshifumi Nabeshima:

      “I felt that with the previous game, Armored Core: for Answer, we had gone as far as we could with the “speed” concept. Being able to present a new kind of mech hero in for Answer was a rewarding experience, but if we kept on pursuing speed, then the gameplay would start to falter in spots — most players simply wouldn’t be able to keep up with mach-5 combat. So this time we want to retain the core aspects of what makes the series interesting — and that includes speed — and also present some new concepts that diverge from the past.

      We’re going for the sort of violent action that only mechs can deliver. I want to see the sort of hero that could be born from these powerful, violent machines.

      Up to now, the battles were centered around how well you could dodge your opponent’s attacks while firing away and gradually whittling down his AP. That’s fun, of course, but once one side has an AP advantage over the other, it became difficult to come back from that. This system dramatically changes that battle balance.

      The stages are going to be a lot more complex and less flat and there will be a great deal more detail applied to them. We want players to experience a you-are-there feel that wasn’t around before.”

        Alright, that sounds great enough of an explanation to me, thanks! :)

        “most players simply wouldn’t be able to keep up with mach-5 combat” … tell me about it.. i like heavy designs, but in FA trying to hit a lightweight with constant overboost was like:

          rar, this illustrates my struggles so incredibly well xpx

    Wow. The weapon designs are amazing.

  • godmars

    Know its either not going to happen or happen poorly, but I want to see AC virtual items and spaces in Home. Virtual models with modular parts. A garage/hanger space that has your lead in-game mech on display in 1-1 scale.

    The Xbox people could get a virtual RC model and hanger backgrounds. Avatar clothing.

    I love explosions and partical effects. How did I miss this game, it reminds me of the epicness that is Michael Bay’s phenomenal Transformers film franchise, except without the annoying Megan Fox and the awesome Shia,

      Well, one thing Armored Core has when it comes to females is that in every game, you have a female navigator. Except they fail in comparison to For Answer’s navi. :)

    Digging the new Laser Blades.

    Plasma chainsaws? It’s so absurd that it’s awesome.

    • 5parrowhawk

      I suspect that plasma chainsaws are a bit more practical than they sound. After all, the vents need to be cooled down at some point, elsewise they’ll melt. Shutting them down and rotating them into the weapon housing sounds like a reasonable way to do that. Same principle as the gatling gun.

      Although, now that I think about it, a gatling plasma blade would probably achieve the same effect, only more effectively and with fewer moving parts.

      Can’t wait for this to be out!

    The weapons look so detailed, it’s astounding how they almost make more sense than real weapons~!

    oh please let that circle be a lock box

      3/12 pics says yes. I hated the Armored Core 4 lock boxes,

    Laser blade concept art makes for an interesting wallpaper

    looks badass :P

    rar, production artwork, delicious, delicious, production artwork~! Seriously really liking what I’m seeing in ACV though, I love the move back to grounded gameplay — after being unable to play the last few games without heavy motion sickness, the move to a move grounded tactical type gameplay is so appreciated >w<;

    can’t wait to have pew pew pew with those. =)
