Some Armored Core FA scans

Some Armored Core FA scans

It is Wednesday, favorite day of Famitsu magazine online readers. This week, there's a huge coverage about the videogame Armored Core : For Answer in preparation for the Playstation 3 & Xbox 360. Among the translated information available : an online co-op mode and, for the first time, playable mechas that are fully transformable. The release date is set to March 2008 in JAPAN (sorry!).

AC4 2.0.
And From still manages to not knowing how to make some of their games really great.
Always great mechanics and systems, but creating plot and real objectives to take advantage of the stuff they create, still seams to be their weakest point in all their games.
Always somewhat good, never great.

yes! yes! I loved Armored Core 4!

The release date is fixed to March 2008 in Europe.
is this quote accurate? AC4 wasn't even planned to be released in Europe originally. So i'm supriced this game will be released in Europe so soon.

kinda reminds me of the Ace Combat games with the big bosses and all. But this series is all played out, time to put it to rest IMO

Hell no, AC4 was great. Awesome Mechs killing mechs never is played out.

AC 4 wasn't that great, but if they spruce up the graphics a lot and add some variation, then this game will start to be something.

I only tried the demo for AC4 but i must say that i was a bit disappointed with it and as such i'm naturally a bit skeptical about this. But still, it's AC and i like AC so i guess i'll have to keep my eye on it.

The graphics were fine, what it needed was some originality. I've already killed mechs a thousand times in games, and in very similar fashion. The scale of this new AC game seems like it should set it apart from the other games in the sub-genre, and that's a very good thing.

Yeah, the graphics were OK. What turned me off were the clunky feeling controls and general lack of excitement. If it played more like an arcade game like Virtual On or something, I'd enjoy it. So far, the only mech games I enjoy are the Front Mission series, but that's a strategy RPG.

Anyway, graphics still look good..

About the game


What's up?
  • droezelke
    droezelke WD2 is more fun than WD1, but it's so easy. Also, the main quests are 'meh'. WD1 had a more focussed story. The story in WD2 is uninspired. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Sdarts: Don't forget that people are getting sick of CoD, they didn't trust WD anymore after the first. Dishonored 2 got too little PR according to me. (1 Hour ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker quests, which is a goddamn shame, a goddamn shame. For sure they could have come up with some meaningful side quests with at least a story. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Definitely enjoying FFXV more but I am solely talking about the story missions, some good diversity there. I also really like the Chocobos. Just such a shame that the side quests truly are all fetch (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I just think it's a pretty bad sign if a new game can't generate interest on a free weekend. The fact that there are other new games is not a very compelling excuse imo. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Black Ops is also the most popular Call of Duty sub-brand now. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts Also, even WD2 and Dishonered 2 sold much less than the previous games in their series. Same for CoD:IW, very few games that got released this Holiday season sold more than their predecessors. (4 Hours ago)
