Submissions are over, and it’s a whopper – 51 93(!) ACs strong for Queen Drac Wraith‘s second aesthetics ACDC. I’m assuming most, if not all of those are shown in that sweet superimposed image up top. Hit the jump to see the entire stipulations list.

In a post-Verdict Day world, it’s good to see activity for the whole range of AC titles still going on (even if they’re not tournaments in the traditional sense).

Any AC is good!

ACV was finally patched.

There’ll be no indication, and the game will still say “1.01” on the lower right corner, but the stats have definitely changed to match Japan’s 1.03 version.

Thank you, Namco Bandai.

We’ll stop whining.

For now.

A huge surge of creativity outside designing ACs in RR. A lot of effort went into designing emblems, including those of RR mascots Sophie and then others. Eye popping effort done by RR’s resident artist Trace-02, each one of the emblems are original RR characters that are completely ogle/drool worthy. Take note that most of the emblems in the gallery are composed of 2 layers. Take a look at the awesome emblems after the jump: Continue reading »

Beyond parts and performance there’s also vanity, and ACV attempts to satisfy the last urge with a new DLC garage. So far the Desert Base is confirmed to be out in Japan for some time now, reminiscent of an operation in some war-torn arid region, or a botched up Raven Republic summer BBQ party, the garage seeks to satisfy those with a preference for warmer climates. Hit the jump for a video of this new place to store your AC.: Continue reading »

ACV Announcement

It seems that the Armored Core community’s outcries have been heard, somewhat, as the massive online-only bosses have finally been scheduled to be unleashed outside of Armored Core V’s Japanese servers. DLC packs are now available as well, though they’re just the packs that came with the pre-orders.

Though these recent developments are highly encouraging, we still don’t have the long-awaited balance patches, so please continue the effort on the Namco Bandai support forum.

Now to whet your appetites for this weekend, I’ll leave you with this video of one of the bosses in action.

A recent surge of creativity has risen within the ACV world, this time with regards to the emblems that the ACs themselves carry. And again, it’s the Japanese who are leading the way.

It’s pretty amazing what can be done with a simple manipulation of the basic shapes available with the engine.

Not to be outdone, RR’s been up to some pretty good stuff too. Check them out after the jump.

Despite Armored Core 5’s focus on team gameplay, the duel between 2 pilots still remains the “Classic” way to play Armored Core, holding true for all of the game’s incarnations.

GodlyPerfection has uploaded what seems to be a duel between two, top ranked JPN players in a best of three fight to the death. An operator oversees the fight and records the video. The uploader notes that you do not see the players go through Scan Mode due to the recording. True enough, this ACV video reminds us that the dueling spirit in Armored Core is not dead and has lived on.
