https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H9MsGPTUaa0&t=654sHope Rubicon lets us fight alongside the trailer mech if it's its own character
>>21566449Not too surprising (figure delays are common) but unfortunate. I hope economic turmoil can be staved off enough to allow AC6 to launch smoothly.
>>21566614serves that motherfucker right
I am frankly amazed how comfy this is
>>21566696There's no way it doesn't run like shit. 3DS can barely handle SNES emulation.
>>21566712most psx games run full speed, niggapcsx rearmed is made for ARM chipsyou just need .chd formatted roms because the read speed is slow with .bin
>>21566696That does look fucking comfy, even though I've never been a handheld fan. I've only ever owned a regular DS
>>21566614>100% accuracyI kneel
>>21566712https://litter.catbox.moe/gitswg.MOVI can barely play it because I’m contorting myself to not have a reflection or knock the phone over, but you get the picture.The sound is also perfect, but I muted the video because reasons, and the image quality looks much better irl because it’s not 2cm from your face, it looks better than running it on my tv to me.
Going to play Nexus for the first time. Don't anons here recommend skipping one of the disks? Can't really remember
>>21566832norevolution is great
>>21566832First disk's missions are kinda shit, but at least the music is great. And it's the main game which would be weird to skip.
>mid march>still nothing what are the chances it’s vaporware?
>Radar>Missile Launcher or Linear Gun>heavy-class core>sniper rifle on right>machine gun on left>no FCS>no Legs>no Generators>no BoostersINCOMPLETE
>>21565100>Matthias wanted a fire stick up his assKek
>>21566832>Don't anons here recommend skipping one of the disks?Only the retards do.
>>21566863No, I don’t
>>21566863I recommend skipping Nexus, Nine Breaker and Last Raven. Finish 3 / SL and head straight to the PS3 titles
>>21566516lmao this faggot keeps shilling his shitty youtube channel. Not even worth a click no matter how amazing your content.
>>21566866>skipping Last RavenYou don't know true kinohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cLvlVcR1kA
>>21566910he’s the fag that complains about not being able to hit shit in LR
>>21566425midweight with dual rifles
>>21566989Nobody uses dual rifles
>>21566910>>21566911I WILL skip Last Raven just to upset /acg/!
>>21566866Holy shit taste.
>>21566425For players it's actually a reverse joint biped with high ammo energy gun and missiles or a quad with energy gun and energy cannons, because most missions are easy enough for that and everyone needs the money
>>21567227only the first 1/3 of the first game in a gen is tight with money, by the time the 2nd game starts you have zero narrative reason to work at allnexus and LR have you swimming in money after like 3 missions
>>21566696Holy shit Jack-O reflection! Jack-O is playing on 3DS!
>>21567232My inner hand-rubber compels me to hoard money on every occasion as early as possible to buy everything from the shops
Got a challenge for you guys. Clear any route of last raven using just the starting credits. Had a close shave here.
>>21567267not a good challenge, desuheavily favours tanks because they’re cheap, don’t take boosters and mitigate the lack of otherwise expensive mobility by just taking less damage, so you’re basically just buying weaponsmeanwhile a lighter build needs investment in 3 parts just to not die
>>21567293>Weapon arms only + [reverse joint legs only]>Hover legs only + [Bilbo/Green Witch mode: energy weapons only]>Tank legs only + [Barchetta/Karma mode: grenade rifles, grenade launchers, howitzers only]>Quad legs only + [Rim Fire/Bullet Life mode: machineguns and chainguns only]>Starting generator only, no limiter release + [no energy pack extensions, no generator capacity optional part]>Starting booster only, no tank or hover legs + >Shop ban after you earn any credit/part + [total shop ban, no karasawa, no moonlight]>Spread shot weapons only + >ND weapons only + [ND FCS only]>No visible lock weapons + [no blades]Was thinking about some challenges, square brackets are additional rules. Criticism or suggestions welcome.
>>21567305challenges that are actually about being challenging and depend on skill:>ND weapons only + [ND FCS only]>No visible lock weapons + [no blades]>blades only>light only (<3800?)>low cooling limit (so you have to mind the heat rather than picking high cooling parts while using a starting radiator)building challenges I’m not sure about, I feel literally nobody uses hover legs outside of designated water missions, so that might be oneotherwise recreating cool concepts/mechs from other media that don’t make sense in AC and trying to beat certain hard missions might be cool
>>21567305>Spread shot weapons only>BOOM>BOOM>…>…>…>…>…>BOOM>BOOM>…>…>…>…>…
>>21567351>ND weapons only + [ND FCS only]Kind of pointless, all campaign ACs have flawed AI. All you need to do is backpedal away and they'll abandon their movement patterns in favor of re-entering their programmed range in the fastest way possible, ID boosting forward. You'll notice a ton of vids where the other guy just builds a fast but sustainable AC to just backpedal away to trigger this. At that point, lockbock size becomes a null factor.>No visible lock weapons + [no blades]Also trivialized b AI leashing for ACs, and then pulverizers and leviathans are very easy to hit. At best the most challenging targets are those sand burrower MTs and jets.>blades onlyChallenging, although a blade only run has been done with AI exploit. IIRC the jack O route done by cow.>light only (<3800?)Not as hard as you think. The best generator is already extremely light, and a non OB lightweight can get away with hazel and never worry about overheating. From there it's just a matter of brining an ammo efficient gun like the shadow or the R2>low cooling limit (so you have to mind the heat rather than picking high cooling parts while using a starting radiator)Same as above, a low calorific value is the biggest factor in heat and that can be accomplished with just the lotus, even the g91. Honestly, the best way to make last raven hard is to remove the option of backpedalling. Obviously very hard to enforce, but actually forcing players to actually deal with AI strats by tracking them instead of tricking them to boost forward would increase the challenge by a lot.
>>21567398Doesn't have to be specific to LR. I've tested some of the challenges in AC2 and 3, GL tanks can be created before the first mission/arena match and it's pretty fun since you'll struggle to break even on many early missions.
>>21566882I'm just a noob who is a sucker for intro/starter mech builds. There are lots of videos on the custom stuff but the sentimental value just isn't there for me.
>>21567395New rule [no weapon arms]
>>21567406Off the top of my head, a universally difficult way to beat the 3rd gen games is Pile bunkers. Ammo might be an issue so I guess early third can have left guns since they can't lock on. While late third can maybe have pile bunkers + blades?There are still exploits of course, but there might be some honesty in there, specially if you use the low damage high ammo piles.
>>21567418There's no need to aim for difficulty only, I see it as an incentive to get out of one's comfort zone and try new setups.
>>21566882stop being such a closeminded asswipe
>>21567446p-please give me views and upboats!
>>21567450Very well.Post the AC channel.
>>21566866basedending old AC at the peak, good idea
>Karasawa: Yes, it is. And we're still struggling with that. But we want to be very careful here, because if we make certain components clearly superior to others, then we'll end up in a situation where there's a single "strongest loadout", which we want to avoid. On the other hand, if they all have the same parameters, it will be boring. The trick is making sure the function of each mech part has its own pluses and minuses… so yeah, it's very tough.And a quarter of a century passed.
>>21567696Maybe the answer is to strive to make everything ridiculously overpowered in its function
Tourist from /ic/ here.I just want to shill my art. Bye.
>>21567894based yet YWNBAR
>>21567894Very sexy, saved
>>21567894Is this traced? If not, very nice
>>21567935No, just a study using reference, I don't really have much experience painting ( I'm more of a drawing type). Also wanted a nice pape while at it.
>>21568030Nice anon, do kinds of brushes also matter when doing paints? I kinda want to have a brush similar to yours just so I can replicate that powerful texture
>>21568080>do kinds of brushes also matter when doing paints?Not really, they help you to save time on details but you can do pretty much anything with a round brush and apropiate pen pressure. I'm just to lazy to bother searching for brushes and I dont want to depend on them.In this case is just the default oil brush I use on CSP. And about the texture, maybe you are refering to a noise filter I add on top of the picture in overlay mode. Some people dont like it but I think it looks dope.
>>21568092Yeah, I’ve heard great things on using the oil brush. Any settings you’ve tweaked around the brush so it can be nice for both new and veteran artists? Or it’s highly dependent on how much pressure you apply when brushing?
>>21568121The gimmick of the oil brush is that it will always blend with the color you are applying on top off. For example if you apply white on black you will get grey and if you want just pure white you press the pen harder(or do multiple strokes). In this caseI just lowered the oppacity to 85% so I can blend without using the blend tool. This video talks more about it. https://youtu.be/xJ_22hZaDbk
>>21566857Incomplete, you say?
>>21568136That helps tremendously, thanks dude, will be doing some coloring studies while I’m at it.
>>21568170The pilot is so fat he's classified as human minus. No AC because he couldn't fit in it anyway.
>>21567305Don't ND weapons work best with ND FCS anyway?
>>21568180depends on the game and the specific fcs
>>21568180>遠距離>COWRY>LIMPET=F82D2=F91DSN>F69>VOLUTE=VOLUTE2=F75D>MUREX>MIROKU>遠距離+遠距離>COWRY>F82D2>LIMPET>F75D>F69※>VOLUTE>VOLUTE2>F91DSN>>MUREX>>>MIROKUYou are right for LR. F82D2 is only a little behind in size but has much better stats and is available in the shop while COWRY is obtained in the penultimate mission of two routes.
>>21567894>>21568030That looks incredible anon. Thanks for sharing!
I'm using duckstation to emulate AC1. Is there anyway to have a stable framerate even when shit hits the fan like in the webm? I've seen some videos of the same level where it ran fine, so it should be possible.Follow-up: I'm using the widescreen hack, but the borders around text boxes aren't changed, is there any way to fix that?
>>21567894Feels like something out of a retro ad with a comic/manga styling. Nice.
>>21568136>CSPI see a lot of artists using it over PS, why is that?
>>21568795In my case is just that you just pay for it once and comes with decent brushes out of the box + in app store to download more ( free and paid).PS seems to be the standard but paying 15 bucks monthy for it is way too much for me.
>>21568815I just pirated it...
>>21568819I'm too lazy, and it scares me...
>>21568694yeah, lower the res or have a better machine
>>21568892I don't think it's my rig, I have a 1070 Ti and an i5-8600K. I'll try a lower resolution tho, thx
>>21568903>machine demonstrably incapable of handling the emulation at desired quality>it’s not my rig
>>21568903Increase emulated CPU speed. I dunno if you can do that in duckstation but it's what helped me in PSX Beetle retroarch core
>>21568925make sure you’re using dynarec in beetle
>>21568906>>21568892Dude, you're retarded. It's emulating the system hardware, which lags in those scenes. Somebody has to make a hack to break that system limitation. Don't even bother responding; you're straight up wrong and computer illiterate.
>>21566425Midweight biped with a laser rifle, efficient blade and missiles on one shoulder
>>21568951lmao that’s not how it works, retard
>>21568951Try playing Star Fox on a real SNES and an emulator, then try saying that again, zoomie.
>>21568925That seems to have done the trick, thanks anon!
>>21568960Okay, go record yourself playing that part. I'll fucking wait. You fucking idiots have no clue what you're talking about it's not a fucking PC port. Again, DO NOT RESPOND unless you can debunk what I just said. If you respond with anything else you're just a little bitch trying to duck the challenge.>>21568964Sorry your SNES9X emulator sucked dick, retard.
>>21568987The point is that the actual hardware chugs and the emulator doesn’t, you actual zoomer retard.
>>21568951Nigger, that would be simulating, not emulating. Emulation is about interpreting instructions, not simulating an environment.
>>21568906Try playing that part on the same emulator without any tweaks on any machine and the same thing will happen every time, retard
>>21569051>all components process instructions at the same speedjust stop samefagging
>>21569055So you're not gonna try it and you also have no idea of how psx emulation works, ok>just stop samefaggingmultiple people can call you out for being retarded, dimwit
>>21569063I told you I'm not the same guy and your link has literally nothing to do with the situationEven with a giga nigga PC many PSX games WILL lag on an emulator until you increase the clock speedThis is a factYou are retarded
>>21569065>retard pretends an emulator will lag because the original hardware lags>hurrrrrrrr the link is irrelevantstop being retarded>clock speeddoes fuck all, the interpreter is what matters because the THE EMULATOR IS NOT SIMULATING THE FUCKING ENVIRONMENT
>>21569065If you need to touch the cpu clocks, you’re using an emulator with a garbage recompiler.
>>21569069lolfucking lmaoyou have just confirmed you've never actually emulated the PS1 gamesYou still haven't acknowledged the FACT that emulated PS1 games WILL lag on ANY machine at 100% clock speed and will run well once you crank it up>>21569073Point me to a non-garbage psx emu then anon
>>21569074I didn’t say garbage emulator, I said garbage recompiler. You’re wrong, btw. I have no slowdowns on beetle on dynarec on stock clocks.
>>21569076>I didn’t say garbage emulator, I said garbage recompilerSame thing in the end innitI'm not the anon originally asking about lag, but I use beetle and it does lag with stock CPU speed
>>21568951This is a misleading and confusing post that requires diagrams and some intro to computer science/engineering knowledge to break down.Because on one hand if you're willing to break compatibility then it shouldn't slow down because of the sheer compute power you can devote to the task. On the other, doing that can introduce unintended behaviors, and so it's better to design emulators to preserve performance limitations so that shit doesn't become unstable even if it results in stuff looking like it runs poorly relative to the hardware it executes on.
What does the jp wiki when it talks about “axis” weapons (軸武器)? Some entries note a weapon being strong because it “ignores axis”, and I have no clue what that means? Are they hitscan?
>>21569135You know those times when you have a really big FCS and you get a lock while your bot is technically pointed at a bad angle? You push square and your gun shoots... straight ahead instead of at the target that's in your 8 ocklock positon? You knew it was a fucked up angle but your lockbox PROMISED that it had a capture so you pull the trigger anyway. That's when your gun is off axis. In first gen some guns will ignore this to an extent and still get a bead despite your ACs position. That's an off axis weapon. This was later fixed in later gens where the capture wouldn't register a lock if your AC wasn't in an angle, and then further on when lockboxes were temporarily removed we got the maneuverability stat which also influenced what angles your arm couldn't physically follow what your camera was seeing.
>>21569139First, sorry.Example for noting being an axis weaponhttps://w.atwiki.jp/armoredcoreforever/pages/54.html#id_39730400and for ignoring axishttps://w.atwiki.jp/armoredcoreforever/pages/59.html#id_f4c78c89dictionary>軸>1. axis; shaft; axle>2. center; centre; focal point; key point>3. stalk; stem>4. hanging scroll
>>21569145Honestly, never noticed that, thanks.
>>21569148Watch some replays and set it to spectator view, you'll notice the bullets going in an angle even if your arm isn't technically pointed in that direction.
>>21569146http://www.armoredcorefan.com/acpedia/index.php?%BC%B4軸武器 are weapons that don't have the projectile velocity or fcs compensation to refliable perform deflection shooting軸無視武器 can hit targets even if you're 90 degrees perpendicular to them.
Where's fucking gameplay?Where are fucking screenshots??Where's fucking release date???
>>21569150what did they mean by this?
>>21569153Namcops ran their sums and told From to set their passion project aside and make more Elden ring DLC. Best case it'll get delayed to 2024 for the gameplay trailer or maybe even cancelled altogether.
>>21569153Summer Game Fest 2023 will kick off on June 8, 2023 and have world premieres, live gameplay demos, and announcements.
>>21569168*of unrelated games
>>21569157>Source: my assStop doomposting, faggot
>>21569226He's telling the truthSource: I am insider from his ass
>>21568989Weird example because most 16-bit games have easy to emulate slowdown in my experience. Super Ghouls and Ghosts chugs just as hard in an emulator as it does on native hardware. Metal Slug 2 is nearly unplayable due to slowdown which was fixed in X and can also be romhacked out. It took a romhack similarly to remove the slowdown in Gradius III snes (again, present in both the original and on emulation).I dunno if Star Fox's fx chip makes emulation of it more akin to a fuckin' ps2 game where the speed can go bonkers.
>>21569273It comes down to where you fall on speed of execution vs accuracy of execution. Though I like to think we've long since moved past the need for hacky code that sacrifices accuracy for speed. Mind you when I think emus, my mind goes to the extremes of ZSNES and MAME which are far from ideal reference points.
>Energy flow is reversing from the AMS! AAAAAARRGGGHH!What did he mean by this
>>21569927it’s simple when you think about it
>>21569949Im not good at thinking to be honest, help me...
>>21569958when you factor in the AMS, the direction in which the energy flows runs contrary to expectation
>>21569927It means the plug connected to his brain just sent 500 volts through his nervous system and fried him from the inside out, likely triggering every pain receptor in his body along the way
>found the series on ps2>never played the psx games>picked up on the nineball thing out of context and from online discussion >started playing through the games because 6>AC1: Armored Core is a pretty cool guy eh shoots 3 times and doesn’t afraid of anything >MoA comes alongWhat the fuck am I looking at? Fucking Stinger is more memorable and cool than this guy, and Stinger is not fucking memorable or cool.How did Nineball even become a recurring archetype after this shit?He makes Sumika look like a genius mastermind.
>>21570058Nineballs fucking sucks but we have to pretend that he's a memorable and iconic enemy because he was the OG final boss and reappeared so many times. Two good things I can say about him are1. Having him in #1 on leaderboard was a nice subtle way to introduce him early.2. He has Karasawa and shoulder grenade launcher which are the most iconic Armored Core weapons.
>>21570107>KarasawaAnon is a baka
>10+ games>still no explosives with a proximity fuse

I want an AC version of this in 6
>>21570256is that white trail the jet dumping fuel? Also, what is that open bay on the drone's underside?
>>21568958>laser rifle*Machine gun
>>21567227Nah, that's heavy cope. You sound like a middleweight biped machine gun user.
>>21570265the russians are dumping fuel on the reaper, yesI don’t see any open bay, I don’t even think it has any
>>21570109>>21570111>it was shitty pulse rifle all along
>>21570306His version isnt shitty at all. Its got an insane 3 round burst that only he gets
>>21570317Wtf, the pulse rifles aren't even shitty at all in the first AC game.
Why can't I save transfer from AC1 to PP? Both versions are NTSC, but the file doesn't show up. I use duckstation and I did make sure to share memory cards between games, so wtf is up?
>>21570347I had the same issue, Ended up exporting my save from one card and importing it to the other instead of using the in-emu savefile mover which seemed to do the trick
>>21570165>>21570193Should be Laura Bailey's lines from Nier as Kaine, or the Boss from Saint's Row series.
>>21570350That did it. Thanks, king
>>21570347>>21570350Duckstation uses one memory card for each game by default. There's an option to make it shared for every game. You can do this by loading your AC savedata ingame, then change the memory card setting to shared for all games, then save INGAME again and you'll be able to import normally to Project Phantasma.
If you were an actual Raven assembling your AC and you knew you are going to die if you fuck up, how would you assemble it and use it?I would go for the best defense biped/RJ, a bazooka, one of those missile launchers that fires 4 per lock, a shield, and an OB core to get the fuck out of there when I have to, then slowly peek around corners with just the bazooka sticking out and let the fcs do the work.
>>21570115the original grenade launcher is an explosive with a proximity fuse, the actual projectile doesn’t even deal damage, only the explosion
>>21570961>I'm going to diePicrel it is then
>>21570115VTF missiles.>>21570961Hover with an overboost core. I would only take missions with access to a significant body of water.>>21570058>and Stinger is not fucking memorable or cool.You would do well to mind your blasphemous tongue.
>mogged by a random MT in the mission intro why is this allowed
>>21570961Holy shit I never realised Big Whites have assymetrical arms and the giant fap hand is only on the left
>>21571082Stinger is pretty forgettable ngl, and *I do not like nuisances like you*
>>21571505> spear heads the human plus program and places his brain into the phantasma, almost killing you, the best raven to ever live. [spoiler/]maybe youre just lame anon, or maybe... you want to forget Stinger for another reason....
>>21570961same way I use my current armored core>lightweight>missles>stand in peoples deadzones and blow them to hellnot sure about missions though, I'd really only be interested in the arena fights but If I had to actual missions I'd do like heavy weight quad that slings missles at bitches n hoes from afar before they got close.
>>21570961Underweighted heavy biped. Technically middleweights can achieve the highest AP to speed ratio, but I want enough stability so I don't get staggered by shit like back mounted grenade launchers.Full arsenal too so I can fight safely in all ranges, preferably with missiles so I don't tunnel vision while aiming and fall into the ocean or some shit. If my AP drops below 50% or I get yellow head/legs and I cancel the mission. I'd get a partner but lets be honest, It increases the chances that you'll be betrayed or become a plot point so the badass raven can 1v2 you.Also, I would probably never work for kisaragi, fuck bioweapons and fuck experimental tech. No spooky ancient underground facilities for me either, I want the open ground where I can see the horizon and have multiple avenues of retreat. Also, I'll probably keep my head down so I don't appear in any bounty hunter shit lists.
>>21571751This build needs more EN def but other than that, it's a very cool and stable crest design. What's the internals?
>>21572028Actually, its got more EN def than Shell def, though both are still low for an HWB. Internals are pretty standard, F37H because its a missile focused build, Lotus/Ananda/Gull because cqc is inevitable and I won't suffer the humiliation of dying to noob boiler setups. Speed at the start of the match is 360mph, not great but it's AP gouged so it has the defensive initiative for most match ups and gets to play the poking game. HNM and 3MV gets purged if its a low ceiling map or if it's fighting an all in rushdown build, speeding it up to 420mph and finally the RMT and the SMT get purged when pistols start being drawn and it becomes a 485mph bot with likely a half full BP and a fresh 69H.Again its a very lame and poking oriented build that will try to steal or at least trade damage. Not exactly a thrilling machine to pilot but of the builds I play, this feels the closest to an "I'm not going to die for big corpo" machine. If the Raven occupation was real, It'd probably work well for security gigs or as rear line support.
>>21571702embarrassing on a multitude of levels

>>21573076>>21573077my point was that they have a pretty solid track record for actually releasing the games they announce, considering that the one time a game got canned post-reveal was long enough ago that a good chunk of the people who worked on it might not even be with From anymore
>>215732361) the people working on a game don’t decide to can it2) people from the early 2000s not being there is not a good thing for the game, regardless
this aimbot bs is starting to piss me off
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4-BamISde_MThis song has really grown on me
>>21573591>Notices that the other AC has perfect aim>Doesn't use the environment as cover>>>>>>>>Fights in the airAnon...
>>21573653The arena is destructible, my guy
>>21573656Even if it's temporary, it's still cover. While they're not really efficient, the hill and fences are there too.Not to mention buildings on certain maps can be used to confuse the AI's pathfinding.
>>21573591kek I was really impressed until I realized it’s the AI
>>21573591Welcome to armored core baybee, lockbox dodging the cpu at long range is futile (a bad habit against people, but hey, you gotta play the matchups). Grenades and laser cannons are airburst, they're designed to explode at the point where the FCS expects you to be, and all it takes is one flake of that death pinata to deal damage and stagger, even through thin walls. Your best bet is to fool the fcs even before it shoots by increasing your twitchiness. I'm talking one tap of the opposing strafe button whenever you choose to move in the other direction. You gotta do this whenever you're in combat distance of another AC. When you sense the death orb coming, you swerve hard or maybe let yourself plummet, but generally keeping a lot of shit between you and the other guy would help prematurely explode it.
People should at least try every type of weapon once in every AC that they touch and become interested in. >>21574470That technique works better by tapping boost too, enemy AC's FCS will think you'll boost all the way to where it predicts you'll be, and even better if you're bunny hopping. Later one will require you to give yourself a jumping rhythm to make it shoot above you rather than the floor because you might catch a whiff of the fireball.
Moving from AC2 to AC2AA why does everything feel so shitty? I can't explain it but everything just feels shitty now. My FCS can't lockon for more than a second. I seem to run out of energy faster. I don't have enough ammo to deal with even some of these early game missions. I carried over my AC2 build and cleared the arena and everything. Why does this game make me feel like my parts just aren't working? Were there a bunch of stat changes or nerfs?
>>21570256AC version of what? Shitty video recording?
>>21573591>ACPP arenaJust wait until you play the next game lol.Anyways use maps to your advantage. Some opponents that buzz around too much can ring themselves out. Call it cheap if you want, I call it punishing an opponent that can't control themselves properly.You can layer on the defense and try to outblast them depending on who it is you're fighting.Use missiles. Missiles are very strong in Gen 1. Equip the Option Part that makes them auto-fire on lock.Don't be afraid to be patient and run away. Enemies can run out of ammo just like you.And as others have said don't fly up in the air in a fight like this. Learn how to bunny hop and juke the enemy FCS.Tank tread heavy hitters are some of the biggest pains in the arena. Even all of this advice might be useless to you. Just keep trying.
Patra beat Last Zinaida in under 20 minutes without making any changes to her dual MG AC design while going in blind, she has more AC cred than 90% of you people posting in here.
>>21574761from what I can see her build is basically optimized already, that OB core alone can shred her and dual MGs as well
>>21574761>E2>Macaque>Cougar2>V2>NixCan't see the other parts but yeah, it looks like a pretty solid SP build. She probably has something like a Cicada or S2 and a Pixie 3 for the rest of the parts and Limpet for the biggest possible Box.
>>21574761You should consider going 50k in debt to get a little closer to being an actual human. Maybe after 4-5 cycles you'll even stop posting ecelebs here.
>>21574761shut the fuck up, you ksv zoomer faggot
>>21570256You have something like this in fuel depot worker drone removal mission in AC1 when you just start playing AC games
Where is the shield spreadsheet guy?This implies LR shields do work, but shield coverage is actually a real stat now, rather than hitboxes being borked.
>>21575084You are misinterpreting what even the borked translation is trying to say. You can read the japanese wiki's comments on every shield in last raven, it's hardly positive.
>>21574761>without making changeschanges to what, that is meta as fuck builddual nix was suggested for dualing last thread, those are the best arms for it and eo core for even greater burst dps when 2 nixs already chew up anything in the gameyou could drop the left nix and that build would still be good against acs
>atwiki stops listing Last Raven arm weapon velocities after the hand rocketAnyone here happen to know any other resources that measured this?
>dual weaponswhat is the deal with these in LR? is 500x2 damage better or worse than 1000x1?the dual laser rifle in MoA tended to miss with one beam, but in LR all the projectiles are so tightly grouped they might as well just be one projectile for hit efficiency
Anyone got any confirmed sales numbers?I always said 2 was the most popular game by far, but I’m surprised to see 4 so far benind, given how loud the fans are
>>21575170Does this take into account every console the game released on though?
>>21575177you can see which consoles the numbers are for in the image, anon
>>21575170Its less loud that it has more newer fans. PS and PS2 AC may as well as be impenetrable to a ton of newer people. 4 is also way more cinematic so you have a lot of fans who adored the series from watching variations of AC[MAD]xXFallXx and [AMV]No.39.
>>21575183so the numbers combined for 4 would put it in third place, I don't see how that's "so far behind"
>>21575187>I don’t see how 1/2 is far
>>21575190keep in mind there was a massive time gap between those and inflation is a thing, wasn't Japan coming off a massive economic high back when 1 came out? Also games used to be more expensive back then
>>21575194I don’t even know how to respond to this
>>21575159Looking at the laser rifles, there's really no reason for them to be dual aside from them running out of ammo quicker, which is arguably an advantage. Like, the Skull2 is basically a Shade2 with some increased numbers (so long as you're always hitting with both shots) but drastically less ammo. But they're both a bit too heavy for the damage they're putting out and wreck your energy bar.As for the pulse rifles, ignoring the part where the Roc4 invalidates the rest of them, it can damage race the rest of them but again will demolish your energy bar and you will really feel it on something as quick as a pulse rifle. But as far as raw damage and damage per weight it's on the upper end.The dual plasma is a lethal joke weapon.
>>21575184>PS and PS2 AC may as well as be impenetrable to a ton of newer peopleI keep seeing similar sentiment expressed, but I honestly don’t see how it’s true. AC isn’t even mechanically deep enough to be compared to mainstream western rpgs, let alone the popular autism sims, it’s just obtuse in the sense that the games outright lie to you with numbers either because From is disorganised and the various teams/individuals don’t communicate, or they just make shit up to make the assembly design choices appear more meaningful than they really are.And then there’s the fact tanks exist and basically eliminate all need to consider anything but what weapons you want.
>>21575225psx and ps2 ACs have the easiest learning curveACV has the hardest and that's why it filtered the most people
>>21574761i hate vtubers so much it's unreal
>>21575519that's a guy
>>21575521they’re all guys
>>21575148Actually it looks like they skipped all of them for the left arm weapons. Recoil values, too. Same goes for the back weapons.I think at this point I have to hope someone combs over the game's files for these.
>>21575580it’s a 20 year old video game that probably saw more people playing it in the past 6 months than the 20 years prior, I wouldn’t hold my breath
>>21575580Stability values have already been datamined a while ago. Note that decimals apply, so allow for 1~2 digit difference.https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1wAzG7LgjKm2P4NugOjwsm1u-w7jYaWZrze7kmrvRtWg/edit#gid=0You'd probably want to test the AC before running it just to make sure. I've heard that some findings aren't quite accurate, but hey, its already within the ballpark.Velocities have also been mined and so have projectile spreads.https://ravenrepublic.net/forums/showthread.php?tid=3584
>>21575614>datamined>All values are based on ingame testing, not a direct number pulled from the game's data
>>21575642Weird, I guess I misread the initial post.
I love legion pulse so much you can’t even imagine
>>21575687overed weapons look dumb
>>21575691I kind of like the idea behind some of them. Basically something rebels would use as a trump card.against a technologically superior enemy or as a plaything by someone who gives zero fucks. Though I think the mass blade is stupid when out of chief's context. In chief's case, he just happened to have an AC capable of ripping terrain off the battlefield, in your AC's case, well, its kinda looks dumb that you'd need to strap a cement and rebar weapon on it. At least the other improvised looking ultimate weapons look like they're existing tech repurposed in a very deliberate way.
I'm watching someone more than halfway through ACV after already playing fA and 4 and I'm pretty sure they only use the High Boost button to kick sniper and defense type robots. Always amazing how little of the game you actually need to engage with to get through single player in this series.>>21568694You can try CPU overclocking but that's cheating.
>>21575720You're probably watching Hayama, huh? She also doesn't seem to understand the damage types or that you can see the enemy's AP lol.
christ looking at the default key config for ACV makes me puke in my mouth a little
>>21575614Well hot dang, that's a huge help. Thanks.>>21575766I think I spent precisely mission 0 playing on those controls and firing with L2/R2 was horrendous.
>>21575767I usually rebind right and left arm to r1 and r2 respectively and then jump and high boost to l1 and l2 respectively. Having one hand for movement and another for aiming and shooting exclusely makes much more sense to my brain
>>21575759Why does people from japan like Gen V so much?
>>21575965They aren't trenchcoat hipsters with no friends so they can actually enjoy a game where they don't larp as Twelveball the irregular super loner whose AC is maximum.
>>21575985you are literally "Dark Raven/The Chosen One/The Destroyer" who "Turns All to Dust" and has "The Power to Change The World".
>>21576832He was shitposting (Right?) but sadly there are fans and at times even devs who are genuinely that ignorant or attempt to set such narratives, when they enter a series way into its lifespan or simply got attached to an outlier. You'll be seeing many more of those (pretenders and genuine cases) within the year.
Can I get one of you to check me? It's about a shotgun in the Nexus trio, CR-WL88S2, it's on the left hand. Is it firing seven or eight shots? I'm having a hard time discerning.
>>215769378 shots, most other shotguns fire 6. CR-WR84S also fires 8.
Ahem. Fuck Nineball.
anyone know the acv cinematic where it heavily features the grind bladeshit’s always hard to find
>>21577470It's the japanese teaser trailerIIRC. Or announcement trailer?
is nine breaker really required playing
>>21577576it’s a video game franchise, not school curriculum, you dumb cunt
>>21577646no need to be rude anon
>>21577650could have just said yes or no
>>21577576There's a misconception among people that it's about training which is wrong. Its more of an obstacle course to play through and mess around with. Basically kind of like those eliminator maps from quake 3. Basically, if you like PvP then it's good enough that the late third gen camp is divided between NB and LR. If you like single player arenas, it was allegedly pretty good too. If you just want a play through for the story, then there isn't much other than one reveal at the end where you get ganked by nineball after an obstacle course on your way out of the facility and they reveal it's just a copy. Paraphrasing, its been like a decade since I played it, but basically, they remind you that pilots like you needed to be trained because there's a threat like it out there so you need to be ready. 100% your choice, but there's the impression that you can mess around with all sorts of builds for certain challenges, but at the end of the day there are only a handful of optimal choices if you want the maximum score. Again, non combat, nothing at stake, no grand plot. Probably a nice break from the grim darkness of nexus, but that's about it.
>>21577570it was the japanese trailerthanks bro
>Mfw first time playing MoA>Mfw Nine-Ball drops in and fucking demolishes what is seemingly a poor young kidSo I'm guessing he's not an AI like in the first game? I feel like this mf is gonna show up a lot eh

>>21577768the worst part is he goes down in 5 seconds every time, every single ranker feels like more of a threat>>21577771>Nine-Ball? Whaths the thop ranked Arena AyThsee doing he- Waaaah!

>>21577797>I don't CAAARE who you are, no one can defeat ME!kek I actually heard it
Anyone got a link to defence calculator for LR?
Man, I knew the games had fuck all content, but I didn’t realize it was quite this bad until I played all of them them back to back.Is 6 going the be another single digit hour game?I know their recent games are bigger, but a lot of it comes from backtracking and exploring, I’m not sure it will translate to a mission based game.
>>21577797>AC never had good VA'sENTER https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0JWS1IkDsQ
>>21578099I'd rather have a short but memorable campaign than the mess we had at 5th gen with pointless nothing side missions. I mean, all games have it, but 5th gen had so many.
>>21578190You can play all of V's main missions sequentially without touching a single side mission (in fact all the main missions take place before the side missions in the timeline).It's in VD where they force you to do three side missions between every main mission, and they are all the same mission design of "deathmatch arena with an AC and/or jobbers in it" instead of the lengthy main missions of V in the big city map.
>>21578184quite literally just the Riddler from the Arkham games
>>21578190What AC campaign was memorable, though?Some missions were memorable, but the campaign as a whole?I think you’d literally have enough for 1-1.5 campaign if you collected all the memorable missions together, obviously without the ones they recycled
>>21578229>I think you’d literally have enough for 1-1.5 campaign if you collected all the memorable missions together, obviously without the ones they recycledAC6 will have a Nexus Disc 2 style DLC mission collection.believe it.
>>21578245I want to, but I don’t. What is the last game From actually finished?
>>21578229>AC1>Just a regular raven doing regular raven things. You discover the darker side of the profession when you learn about pilots getting experimented on. You snowball in strength while pursuing this along with your normal raven things. Finally the AI that controls everything recognizes you as a threat and tries to take you out.>ACPP>Regular raven that's contracted to rescue a waifu. Waifu drags you into adventures to deal with an evil organization in between your regular raven life. Much like the waifu, the antagonist is likewise a recurring character that frequently crosses path's with you.>ACMoA>You entered the Raven profession out of a desire for revenge. In pursuit of this, you work on securing a sponsor to partake in the arena to face said revenge-ee while also increasing your ranking. Your manager is suspiciously manipulative and constantly hovers this promise of revenge over your nose to keep you in line. You do a mission for your sponsor without your manager's knowledge or blessing. In doing so you encounter a scientist that your manager doesn't want you to meet. From here life becomes a tug of war between increasing your prestige in the arena, satisfying your sponsors and pursuing your scientist friend's curiosity. In the end you learn that everything, even you is being subtly manipulated by an omnipresent AI.
>>21578325PP and MoA should have had OVA adaptations but we are too far into the future for it now...
>>21578229>AC2>You are a martian raven doing martian things, enjoying martian independence. Earth realizes it doesn't like this independence and sends Earth Ravens to fuck your shit up. Also aliens. Also the leader of the earth ravens wants some alien shit.>AC2AA>Normal raven doing normal raven things. Honestly that's it, there's weird shit going on, but thats way above your paygrade. Keep your head down, do your job and enjoy the wild ride with zero strings and responsibilities. Also aliens, also Alien tech that somehow resembles that weird shit back on earth. Too bad you're not in the know about these things and have no one to talk to about it. You're just a normal raven after all, albeit a good one. Downsides of being truly free I guess!>AC3>You are a normal raven doing normal raven things. All your life you've lived in this fallout shelter and are aware of an AI controlling everything. You and everyone around you believe the AI is looking for your best interests except you get dragged into a mission under nondisclosure. You go to a place that the AI says its bad except its not! Looks like the AI is lying you better stop sticking your nose in this shit and maybe live like the guy in the last game. Uh oh, too late, the corporations that seek to appease this AI try to kill you but in your attempt to save yourself by destroying it leads you and everyone in your fallout shelter towards the path of freedom.
>>21578349>AC3SL>You are a raven trying to rake in as much dosh as possible during the corporate land grab that happened after your fallout shelter learned of the surface world. Oh shit, there's this place that's really dangerous! Better explore it! Oh shit, there's a satellite shooting lasers indiscriminately. What's that? The corpos want to sponsor a scouting mission in the sattelite? Cool, go with this cute waifu that you may or may not have backstabbed in a friendly competition. Oh shit, it's really bad! So bad that the corpos hire a fuckton of ravens to board it and take control of it. Oh shit, a bunch of you died! But the sattelite is now in corporate hands. That totally won't backfire! Anyway, you got paid so not your problem! Oh shit, you can now explore this spooky place that the satellite beam was guarding. OH shit there's another fallout shelter JUST LIKE YOURS. Oh shit. Its got its own AI and you have to deal with it. Also, normal raven things!
>>21578325>>21578349>>21578372you are confusing campaign as in the actual missions with the “plot”
>>21578325>>21578349>>21578372>walk down hallway
>ACNX>You are a raven trying to rake in as much dosh as possible during a corporate mineral rights dispute. Haha, good thing everyone HATES each other, time to make a lot of money! There's a bunch of Husbandos too including a skilled newcomer like you, an elite leader that cleans up your mistakes and enforces the raven code, a weird ryan gosling motherfucker that keeps sending smiley faces at you. Oh shit, things are escalating and there's a mini corporate civil war and you have to fight ryan gosling. Oh shit, that newcomer pilot was caught breaking the rules and got fired. Oh shit, the uptight RAVEN code guy just realized that your organization is corrupt and PURGED everyone, probably executed your operator too. No worries mate, have a loli! Oh yeah, and test this tech willya? Us, the corporation that only makes weird parts and exploding bugs TOTALLY invented it! Oh shit, one of the other corpos backstabbed you and now that RAVEN code guy wants to send a message by fucking them up. Oh yeah, each side starts dying off while the weird tech nerd corporation that TOTALLY invented their new tech ran into some weird shit digging up some old stuff. Oh yeah, settlements start getting erased by some unknown shit. Oh shit, While you were busy doing all that corporate war shit that left everyone on the verge of bankruptcy, some weird tech got turned on and ITS THE FUCKIGN APOCALYPSE.>ACLR>ITS THE FUCKIGN APOCALYPSE. 24 hour war lets go. Pick your side, fight it out, so much shit happens and you happen to be the one man in the wrong place that makes all the difference. Oh yeah, the weird shit that caused the apocalypse. You better stop that too but you don't have to.>>21578375The campaign IS the plot
>>21578382no, the campaign is the missions, not the shit you read in emails while not playing the game
>>21578389yesnobody gives a shit about the “story” in ACit’s just loosely connected tropes told though missions recycled from the last game>sit here and shoot at jets and helicopters for the 15th time, raven>woooooow I’m getting so much exposition this is amazing
>>21578391Well uh... at the end of the day that's pretty much it isn't it? You shoot at helicopters and weak robots with the occasional jobber. Just like in any other AC except its the dialog, pacing and the conspiracy that ties shit together. Next time you'll tell me that resident evil 1 and 2 are bad games because all you do is shoot at zombies, dogs and birds.
>>21578396you’re being retarded, stopthere are memorable missions, like the ones where you’re murdering civvies to draw out the robots/ac to shoot, chasing trains, clearing obstacles for sandra bullock, sneaking past helicopters, shooting from inside a plane through a half closed bay only to be dropped into a sandstorm, climbing a building from the outside to clear out floors, fighting over water while being bombarded with missiles, etc etcthose missions are memorable because they aren’t just walking down a conveniently AC sized corridorI don’t give a shit if the corridor I’m walking down is totally a part of an ancient unknowable culture, or an ancient unknowable AI, or an ancient unknowable alien AI culturethe corridor is not memorable because an email tells me it’s actually super important
Ugh... this guy doesn't know what he's talking about! No more (You)s for him!
>>21578396RE1/2 are puzzle games, the zombies are just there for the tension, the game design is to avoid the zombies while exploring the map and figuring out the puzzles, not shoot them. If the games were shooters, yes, they would be shit.
>>21578382>surprise, it's another nineballwow, who could've guessed
I'm playing through all the armored core games for the first time, I've 100% all from 1 to 3, But does Silent Line 100% require All S rank on missions?

Did anyone try to play AC2 with analog sticks? I'm running it on PCSX2 and when I use a custom profile for analog stick movement the game shits out and moves by itself.
>>21579024just bind the view to the face buttons, the game is too slow and forgiving for the right stick, you might as well watch someone else play it at that point
>>21579024Got it to work using an older version of the emulator>>21579096Lol no, the default control scheme sucks so fuck that
>>21579118it’s not the default scheme, retard
>>21578229>What AC campaign was memorable, though?I really liked Silent Line. After going through AC3 and escaping from your huge under ground city, it was cool to find out there were other similar places. Especially since there was a huge impassable area leading to the place, and those crazy white robots started showing up trying to stop you. It was all very mysterious and I liked it.
>playing Another Age, not paying attention to any guides yet>decide to look at the hidden parts list>missed out on the BEX-BT180 and already saved my gameThis part sounds amazing. Am I going to hate myself if I wait until beating the game to go back and get it?

HOW DOES MELEE HOMING IN THE OLD GAMES WORK ASDKJFHNBASDJFHBGA EVERY TIME I SWING MY SWORD IN THE AIR I FLY IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION OF THE ENEMY I'M AIMING AT
>>21579744Anything below 3.5 is just boost hop near the enemy and press circle with varying levels of magnetism. Lighter the AC the better the magnetism moves you toward the target.On 3.5, ground go ground and air to air are the only ones with tracking. Closer the better. Air to ground is still possible, but you better know exactly where your AC needs to go for the blade to interact with your target.

Glad I decided to keep going instead of starting over.>>21580408This looks like a fucking TAS.>>21580415>single player is piss easy, you can just blade everything without an extensionIn what games? I'm still in Gen 2 and melee feels very impractical unless I run out of ammo. The tracking feels literally broken and nonfunctional in the air, and grounded melee does reduced damage.I just originally posted about wanting that part for the inevitable enemy ACs that have H+ shit activated and constantly fly behind me. Or does AA not have any enemy ACs as bad as the previous games' arena opponents?
>>21580848Stop replying to the /v/tards.
>>21580859LR is the only game where you need to play optimally, everything before that is a cakewalk, and a good blade (moonlight or the other one) makes a lot of enemies a joke. AA especially is really easy to go blade only for the most part. Stop being fat and/or bad at the game, the enemies barely even move in 2nd gen, ACs included.You are really in for a rude wake up in 3rd gen if you can’t stay on top of them.

Guys, I’m sorry about calling you /v/ermin, I’ve just had a lot on my plate lately and I feel like I’m slipping, and now that I’ve done everything in Elden Ring I have nothing to occupy my mind and still these dark thoughts so when I learned about this other From franchise I thought it would help but it’s so fucking clunky and outdated. Should I force myself to keep going? Do the characters and lore get better? It doesn’t feel like the From I know at all.
>21581213>21581281>angry /v/ samefag mad that these threads don't go fast enough to give him the attention his ADHD demands
>>21581281What a weird falseflag. The soulsfags are the ones who are gonna make "git gud fag lolol heckin rickroll'd xDDDD" shitposts all over the thread instead of adding anything valuable to a discussion.
>>21581381You must be new here.
Say something about my Next.btw I'm emulating and game runs great, except it may randomly crash on cinematics, it's annoying but I can live with it, I googled it but I cant find a fix.

>>21580926>random butthurt retardSays the guy who can't back up his claims and has a schizo meltdown the second he sees slight pushback.
dear godplease let bandai make model kits for the new AC seeing that they're publishing itI'd much rather their bullshit over kotobukya's. Also the westoid market favors their products more which is another perkamen
>>21566866Nine Breaker is really good though.
>>21582218I'd honestly be shocked if they didn't. They've been publishing From games since Dark Souls. Maybe they'll release some after seeing how successful AC6 turns out.
>>21566364Playing through these games for the first time, finishing up AA right now. "Eliminate Raven" was fucking insane, agonizing but man the feeling of accomplishment when I won was great. Loving these games so far.
>>21581870Is AA hard to go blade only in? Yes or no?
>>21581756It has almost the same color scheme as my main design, but I'm too lazy to load up the emulator>except it may randomly crash on cinematicsHappened to me, too. Just skip cutscenes the second they play and watch them on yt later if you care enough
>>21582218Considering koto still made ACV kits I kinda doubt itAlso there's nothing wrong with koto kits aside from the fact they don't reprint them ever, which won't be a problem near release time
>>21581756>>21582400The crashes only happen on newer rpcs3 releasesAn anon here pointed me to a build from december 13 and that stopped the crashes for me
>>21582477Xenia should also be more stable, but I only used that for AC V and VD
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ND73xLnH000I'm asking the world economy to kindly hold it together or get it together long enough for Rubicon to have as smooth of a launch as possible
>>21582365I was always lagging behind due to availability/console generations before so I only happened to make it a goal to play the games a short while before 6 was announcedIt does take me back to those afternoons and weekends of repeated trail and error until I finally got good enough and how great it felt to finally win
>>21580848>What would you do on original hardware? I don't use DRM boxes because I'm not a braindead consoomer who thinks that tweaking controls to your own preferences to make playing the game as comfortable as possible is something out of the ordinary.
>>21582645What a classic.
>>21582645>>21582651Are there any rom hacks that add custom weapons?
>>21582641Based but also get on my level. I don’t even play the games because I’m not retarded enough to give money for children’s toys when I can just open up youtube and have the same experience but better because it’s comfier and less frustrating.Imagine feeling good about “comfortably” clutching plastic toys while I’m here holding a hot cup of cocoa and experiencing expert level play without investing a second more than necessary.
>>21582653Expect to see them pop up after the release of AC6
>>21582675have you seen the actual state of souls mods?
>>21582680Souls modding scene is pretty good despite the lack of any official support or tools yes.
>>21582728I've seen a DS1 mod that allowed custom maps. Like I've seen a guy bring a map from halo or someshit. I'm not asking for much, well, maybe I am but I would love it if the ps2 generation somehow got all multiplayer maps available for all multiplayer games. Like, imagine fighting in that little dome colony with the little houses from AC2 while using LR mechs. That city where one player starts from a highrise while another under a bridge? Sick!God I would love to play 4player deathmatch on the AA maps. Imagine if modders even imported mission maps like that silent line crater or that another age ruined city where you fought the giant MT.
>>21582645>>21582651>not a mecha version>not even that parody Gundamshame
i want gen 3 style weapon arms to come back, variable firing rate/shot types was so sick
Huh back in the day I was totally unaware of the reference of ACV also dropping a Nineball/Leos Klein PUROGRAMU ending speech after Exusia, although even that's sort of in a way that would also support V being a prequel to 1 if we didn't have a somewhat complete timeline for the supposed history immediately preceding AC1 that doesn't match up with the time span covering for Answer to Verdict Day.Putting it that way is a hilarious thought too though, the idea that the shadow organization has been specifically trying to stop one AC from ruining their shit for centuries and no matter what they do it keeps happening bro
>>21583295 but with DxM style individual arm equip
>>21583300V has its own H+ analogue and secret society making super soldiers, they appear in the order missions (turning humans into AI).also there are dev interviews form 2012 saying V was meant to be a new timeline and not a sequel to any previous game, that was retconned in VD.
>>21583315is H+ even a thing in the setting outside of first gen?
>>21583450uhh you could say Lynxes are kinda H+'d
>>21583315Really the lynch pin of even considering VD as related 1 instead of just all From plots and themes overlapping is only the very specific reference of a guy being named Isaac, which is to be fair even weaker than shoving Nine Breaker between Nexus and Last Raven and all the recycled AC1/2 parts.
>>21583463nah, that’s just newtype shit
Is the LiV the most advanced weapon ever shown in the Armored Core series>main body is actually smaller than V-ACs, almost small enough to basically be powered armor at around 2-3 meters tall>posses a Kojima generator and can project Primal Armor which isn't strong enough to completely block out damage but gives it high defenses for something its size>incredibly powerful weapons mounted on its shield pylons, possessing laser rifles stronger than any of the non-Karasawa rifles>a Hi-Laser rifle which has perhaps the highest single target damage of any enemy in the game except for N-WGIX's Assault Cannon and Exusia's Boson Drive>Jamming missiles which interfere with AC generators and cause them to lose output unless they have very high jamming resistance
>>21583495also if she charges you with her feet laser blades it's an instant kill
>>21583495and yet we still kill her with a junkyard dog scrapped together ac
>>21583506because the true most powerful weapon is the one inide (the pilot)
>>21582663https://youtu.be/PllQmeSEpNw and play some ACMoA multiplayer? It'll be real fun and cozy.
>>21583724Sorry, sounds too sweaty for my liking. I'd rather chill at home and play Ninecraft.
>>21582663>I don’t even play the gamesthe /v/tard migrant influx isn't over yet i see, what a shame.
>>21583738Welcome to the new normal. It's only going to get worse.
>>21583745we are back to slower threads so i see that as a sign of nature healing itself gradually.
>>21583506Four of them, more like. Soloing LiV is actually a massive pain in the butt and not terribly consistent.
>>21582475Wouldn't hurt to have more choices. Bandai could release cheaper models and toys for casual players who just want a cool robot or two from the games on their shelf while Kotobukiya does the extra fancy expensive stuff for die-hard collectors like usual.
>>21583736But can he run Minecraft?>>21585127>>21585127>>21585127
