        Another soulsgay that's comparing it to his soulslop. It is the most hyped armored core game ever and it will be the best selling armored core game ever, maybe even the best selling mecha ever.

    Trying to play Armored Core 1 and I feel like I'm getting filtered. I'm just trying to come to grips with the game and I still don't feel like I'm quite getting it. Still not used to the controls even after some configuration but I'll keep trying.

      If you use Retroarch you can rebind them to move and look around with the analogs.

      The controls won’t be good under any circumstances until you upgrade your mech into something that controls well. It’s part of the game.

        right now my biggest issues are
        >boosting right now is very short lived, I'd imagine doing more missions will unlock better boost parts.
        >moving the camera is way too slow, especially when trying to boost
        Also I have no idea what half the upgrades entail, there's a fuckton of terminology that I just don't understand for some parts.

          Learn to slidehop, it will dramatically improve your energy efficiency. You have to tap boost, tap jump, and boost when you land. Of done correctly you will bw moving like a kangaroo.
          Turning speed is a stat, use nimbler legs to turn faster.

            Arent boost and jump the same button? Would I be double tapping in this case?

          Arent boost and jump the same button? Would I be double tapping in this case?

          It's more commonly called boost hopping back in the day. The idea is that the energy it takes to get off the ground is less than the energy you will regenerate as you fall back down, so you're moving at 66~75% of your max ground speed but with net positive energy. The vertical movement also helps with evasion.

          When you let go of the boost button and press it again, it converts a horizontal ground boost into a liftoff. That is the hop. The trick is to boost, hop, then let go so that you continue flying up through inertia, then just before you land you hit boost again to soften the landing and return to a horizontal ground boost. Repeat ad infinitum, this is the bread and butter movement skill for the entirety of Generation 1 through 3. The exact timing will depend on your parts but you'll figure that out on your own.

    Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon (2023) is an upcoming FromSoftware title that blends the third-person, mecha-combat action fans of the series know and love with the Strand-like genre first popularized by creator Hideo Kojima. Set in the distant future on a post-apocalyptic Earth ravaged by war, play as a member of a mercenary resistance group fighting to reconnect and save the world. Undertake dangerous missions piloting your fully-customizable Armored Core mech, delivering precious cargo between cities hidden deep underground. Use the geography of the world to outsmart your enemies and complete your deliveries safely, or purchase weapon, armor, and other vehicle upgrades to annihilate them in combat. Work with other pilots who might leave valuable resources or structures for you to use via the online Strand system, or increase your social credit score by building infrastructure and leaving items for others. And uncover the mystery of unseen, possibly-supernatural forces hell-bent on wiping out what little life remains on Earth. Tomorrow is in your hands, Pilot.

        Nah, real dudes have physical copies of the games. Real dudes probably have played many mecha games and even have mecha model kits. It's easy to tell a soulsfag and true acfan apart.

        Thank you. Is armoured core worth playing?

        Yes, although many get filtered from ac1 so I recommend ac2 to start with, the ps2 games are the meat of the series.

    This should tell you enough about it

    AC wasnt popular, mechs werent and arent popular, much less mech games. Fromsoft having their banks filled with souls cash to make this pet project wont change that.

    It will be akin to a less popular Sekiro, sell well at first, have a cult following but overall not as profitable as their cashcow.

      Aside from such a black hole of popularity, it's such a ballsy move on From's side to try to release this right after their biggest hit that is Elden Ring instead of just leaving it to dust forever, i kinda respect that.

        Oh, dont get me wrong, i feel the same way, any lesser company would just lay low in their comfort zone and innovate juuuust enough to not lose their costumers out of boredom GF, and im happy they are doing it.

        But i wont lie or delude myself or others, i wasnt an AC fan before they released the trailer and probably will stay the same way (just not a fan of shooters in general) and this is a selfish vanity project by them, they fucking know this wont make the genre or the series popular and will only sell fine-ish as it will because of their name, they just want to visit their roots and make some cool fucking robots even if it wont be popular and it certainly wont revive AC more than beyond this one title, expect the next game in the next decade at best if ACfans are lucky.

        For all this reasons i hope its a game that is good FOR the fans of the series.

        Not really ballsy, they risk nothing and have a lot to gain. They will make many soulslaves into ac fans, they will at least try the game. More importantly mecha is easier to merchandise than souls, model kits are a big thing and make a lot of money. They are so financially successful that a year or 2 setback on the next soulslop won't be a problem.
