We’re coming out of hibernation just in time to announce that the Armored Core V Demo has been available through Japanese PSN. If you want to know how to join in on the fun, no point in recapping info that’s readily available elsewhere, so just help yourself through the recently revived Armored Core V discussion thread over at the forums.
For posts pertaining to video games in general.
In other news, Mecha Damashii, through 4Gamer, reports that TypeD No.5, the lovable big red mech we’ve all seen in the promotions, is but one of many special bosses for teams to tackle in Armored Core V’s extra missions. Sorry about the comma abuse.
And to top this post off, I’ll throw in a month-old gameplay video, presumably from TGS 2011, that we’ve yet to feature:
Dark Souls, From Software’s other possibly more mainstream non-giant-robot cash cow, was just released the other day. And it’s good. We’ll probably be losing sleep over this for the next few days (months), so we’re posting this just so you know what to blame if the front page seems deserted again.
You guys can join the Dark Souls discussion in the forum if you’re as enthusiastic about the game.
Blades and giant robots always seem to go hand in hand (despite the probable impracticality), and Armored Core V is no exception in the hyperbolic treatment of this fan-favorite cliché.
Niji of ACU, who was fortunate enough to be included in the closed beta test, reports that the basic blade in ACV nearly one-shots most ACs and that the range and sweep is just as devastating.
J.E_Magog at the forums brought to our attention a video from Gamescom 2011 featuring live Armored Core V team play.
In the video, the commander (with a cool accent) tries to lead the team through the familiar Armored Core destroy-all-targets mission spiced up with co-op action.
…And we’re back from the dead, yet again. Not that there’s an unlimited number of things to cover when you only blog about giant robots.
So if you’ve not been keeping up with the latest Armored Core news, allow us to recap a bit.
