I played armored core and it was okay I guess yeah,the only replayability is in the parts. Multiplayer sucks everyone just stacks tankparts and missles the ams sucks dick

the front mission series were my favorite but i fucked up everytime when i edited my mechs classes too much. (IE 2 blade mechs and 2 rifle mechs)

Mech warrior online sucks dick
Hawken sucks bigger dick
and titanfall is the troll of the mech series titanfall was overhyped for sure

Armored Core series is awesome, though the latest installments (V and Verdict Day) suffer from horrifying frame rate problems. Think Dragon's Dogma, but constant high level spell induced performance issues. It's that fucking bad.

Armored Core for Answer.

Armored Core 4 is a prequel to it, but the game is short as fuck (literally an hour or two long) and knowing what happens in it isn't that important. I paid full fucking 60€ for the thing and still regret it to this day. Felt like a paid demo.

That's what my friend told me and I trust his word, also have never seen it being p2w claims here on 4chan so there's that too.

I've thought of how to remove legging. Instead of killing the mech when the legs are destroyed, it should just make them limp and move slower. Combined with a VTOL that can lift damaged mechs back to base for repair, it wouldn't be seen as much of a scrubby tactic.

I want to like the MW4 series but I absolutely hate how much they dumbed down the weapons. Literally everything except missiles became fucking hitscans! AC20? Nope, it's just 1 fucking hitscan. In MW3 it was a badass burst cannon with every shot individually modeled. Why was 4 such a step back?

Still far better than MWO though, I must say. Still handles like a dream with HOTAS.
>>
>>252807096
He's wrong. MWO is complete shit. They've cut the value of in-game currency several times, and quite frankly having to grind so much to afford to get different weapons completely kills the fun of customization.

Plus. it's practically impossible to play on a HOTAS setup because you get utterly shat on by mousers
>>
>>252806464
God, why didn't they just put it on PC? That would put all the UI issues right to bed since navigating them with a mouse would be easy

You shouldn't be restricted to only 8 directions of movement in those games. Not to mention boost and boost charging being pressure sensitive.

Sorta. Weapons mounted on the arms can turn pretty much instantly, while your torso catches up. Either way, it's unwieldy as all fuck, because they're on two separate reticules.

I wish it was like MW3 where they both shared the same reticule and torso weapons just wouldn't fire if your reticule was too far to the sides
>>
>>252813258
4/4A disgusted me because I didn't really like just boosting through the air all the time, having grown up with the PSX/PS2 games

Is ACV/VD like that? Is it worth getting V or should I just go right to VD?

>>252813528
V-era is all about mobility through jumping off of surfaces, the boosting is on the tame side of things otherwise.

>>252813528
Verdict Day is the alive game, and the mobility is less about constant boosting through the air and more about jumping off surfaces like mechanized ninjas.

It's also not as fast as For Answer so you don't have to worry about twitch reactions.

This, besides, balance is the least of my problems with MWO. I just don't like how it handles compared to the originals, how your view doesn't actually bob around with your mech, how turning your legs is instant instead of ramping up (preventing small adjustment), and how people have talked about already where using a joystick is shooting yourself in the foot.

Do they have other gamemodes than 1-life shit yet? You tend to die fast in MWO, so I don't like having to sit out the rest of the round, I wish it was like in MWLL where you just go back to base and have to buy a new mech with in-round currency

No, V. Did VD change the default mapping? if I remember, it had boost on LB and boost charge on X. Going to say again that you can remap controls however you want. Unless they took that out of VD too.

V and Verdict Day don't have framerate problems on my PS3. Definately start with 4/4A if you are new to the series, as they play similar to the previous games (though there are some big differences).

V is even more different and isn't a good first AC game. Only fans enjoy it.

It's ok. It looks P2W but it's really just pay 2 unlock shit faster. The starter mech you get is one of the best in the game.

>Definately start with 4/4A if you are new to the series, as they play similar to the previous games
In my opinion V was a bit more like the PSX/PS2 era titles, striking a balance between the quick boost hell that was ACFA and the slower paced old games.

I really wanted to like V, but the frame rate problems got me and the online died way too early. Really shitty for a game that was focused even more on multiplayer than previous ones. Even some of the main story missions are actually impossible to complete with a close ranged tank mech (can't reach some areas) and without other people to play with you're pretty much forced to play a medium weigh, bipedal, jack of all trades type mech yourself.
>>
>>252820065
Pretty much. There's a good chance you'll enjoy playing the starter mech, and it's not that much grinding to get the monies for your first mech purchase. So unless you're autisitc and will try to get every mech and not pay, give it a shot.

Worst case you just uninstall the damn thing.

Whatever you do, stay away from Mechwarrior Online. Its a huge pile of shit that rapes the series. Its literally an arena deathmatch game with a never ending grind and pay2win mechs.

The devs are also completely inept and are in way over their heads.

yeah, sadly they're really the only ones really truckin hard. The genre is in a 00's space sims kinda slump.

Whoever holds the rights to mechwarrior/battletech has been giving them to just the shittiest fucking dev's. (although that turn based hex strat looks alright)

I just want to be in a clan and kill some impure inner sphere scum, I don't think I'm asking much. But instead we get a shit PvP online only game with grinding and pay to win mechanics. Jordan Weisman, where did you go??

>Uses a learning computer to help run the Gear instead of Battletech's MIND-READING HELMETS (ok this isn't actually that far-fetched but still)

Lore-wise Heavy Gear is kinda lame though. Battletech reminds me of 40K. There is no infrastructure or technological advancement, everyone is constantly fighting for power, and every side is an asshole.

Likewise. They don't go very far beyond what's right in front of you, what you're dealing with in the story, which is especially bad in Front Mission games.

Legging is disallowed on SJ's server, but everywhere else, it's generally ok. Sadly, SJ was the only server populated for a long time till it shut down.

Ramming Jets is pretty stupid though, suciding into someone's torso should be a kill since it makes sense, but there should be some sort of punishment attached to it like a rank demotion. Otherwise heavy and assault mechs just wind up useless because 30k C Bill Sullas will just keep ramming them.

What you're seeing in the arm is again and Votoms thing, it's a pressurized cylinder that allows the mech to punch with great force.

Many of these games came from a place of Japanese game developers being unable to make the licensed game they want so they ended up making a 'similar but intellectually distinct' approximation.

They couldn't make a Mobile Suit™ or an Armored Trooper™ game So they make a Assault Suit or Armored Core game.

Exactly what I'm talking about. And I'm not trying to hate on people liking what I don't like, it's just frustrating to see a mech thread with 300+ replies and only a handful of posters who aren't erroneously conflating mecha with mechs. Most people seem to think they're the same thing, but there is a huge conceptual difference between the two that affects gameplay in various ways. Not all humanoid-shaped vehicles are created equal.

>What you're looking for is first person cockpit view games with giant robots right?
Not necessarily. I suppose my view does place "mechs" closer to simulation than "mecha", though it needn't be an actual sim.

The distinction that used to be prevalent is that mechs are slow, lumbering vehicles that could be generalized as tanks with legs (similar to your pic), whereas mecha are typically characterized as being much more agile, and dexterous, like giant armored humans. Compare Gungriffon Blaze to Zone of the Enders. Saying they're the same because they both have giant robots is like equating Rainbow Six to Halo because they both have guns.

Go into /lit/ and say that there is no difference between western folk tales and eastern folk tales you will get shit on hard.
We're (or at least I am) indeed talking about world building, part of the appeal in games like Battletech/Shadowrun/40k is the lore, how the technology came about, the spread of, and or creation of factions and figures within the respected universe. That is a very important aspect to me when I'm looking for a mech game.

It has lots of novels. So does Gundam.

But you see, no one translates it. There's fucking millions of side stories, shorts, and technical novels that get totally missed by the western fanbase because we can't read it, if it gets scanned alone at all. It wouldn't shock me in the slightest if Gundam, UC alone, had side works rivaling BT.

That thinking ruins the entire point of genres. Everything is now an action game. Everything is now a fighting game.

The point isn't to go off the names, it's to go off what the most common perception of titles that belong to that genres name, so you can then compare how similar games are to it. You're saying it's useless because you alone treat it entirely literal in order to make it useless.

My point isn't "hurr every game is every genre because my autism says so". I just wanted to point out that some genres, namely rpgs, have really dumb names. It would be like having a specific film genre called "film with dialogue". It's such a common element. At least "action" games, for example, are mainly focused on hectic and intense mechanics, whereas the term rpg is so much more broad and doesn't refer to the central points of the genre.

True! We need more of that. I'd love to see a sequel or something similar, it doesn't even need to be as hardcore as the original as long as it's not just an FPS or TPS with a robot skin. Sure, simplify it so it doesn't need a proprietary joystick which nobody buys, just make it complicated enough to be satisfying to pull off.

I'll admit I just love the AT-ST. Something about the weird, flimsy design that seems like something designed for a specific purpose, not designed to save the universe like some more outlandish mecha. It's an Apache on legs, and that's what I want.

Pretty much this, there is ALWAYS going to be a fuckton of content the western audience never sees or hears about

Read Go and say it has no flavors of real robot. It's too easy to blur the lines, they were made as an arbitrary line drawn in the sand taken from a game series that just went with whatever.

I dunno about 'good' but MAV seems promising for what it is.
On the downside most of the srs bsns super optimized vehicles look like this.

>>252867279

Not who you're responding to, but about as slow as a modern military vehicle. Fast trot at most, sprint for emergency situations. Also depending on what role the mech plays.

Preferably no flight or jet boosting/rocket shoes or jumping around. Those are fine in their own way, but I'd like something like what mechwarrior is.

What about Skating, can they have motorized skates?
>>
>>252867981
Basically they put the cockpit behind and below the legs and guns, and gave it a thin front profile so it's harder to hit.

That image is taken from the side.

>>252851605
It was always free though, because it worked with the Crysis Wars demo

How does it deal with GameSpy being dead? Do people just play on GameRanger now?
>>
>>252850584
Even though it makes it different from the BT boardgame they should just eliminate legging by making destroyed legs still work, but just slowly, instead of killing the mech completely
>>
>>252868396
Because armored troopers walk slow as fuck, but can skate around nimbly, terrain permitting.

I'll say.
Then again it can be a fun break from what I usually do, which is to just tape a bunch of shotguns on top of a fast wheeled platform.
>>252867981
The front plate is a shield; it protects the generator, legs and cockpit from damage. The cockpit itself is located behind the legs and is supported by thin metal struts.
The stuff up there is a series of SMGs and shotguns... I think. They're mounted way up high to allow the mech to fire over obstacles.

>>252868396

Eh. That's skating the line there (pun), only for short bursts. For reference: Armored Core 5 is too fast, and 4/FA are obviously way out.

I want lumbering mecha. I'd like to be piloting a mech which is a tank on legs which shakes from side to side as it moves. Skates remove that.

The cockpit HUD wasn't casual enough for people, so unfortunately they did away with the displays-on-the-cockpit-model thing and just made everything overlays

Disgusting, it was one of the few things Hawken did right

Silent Line. Last Raven is better but it's not somewhere you want to start unless you have some experience with the series.

Are there any mech games in a fantasy setting?

I'm sick of Sci-Fi hogging all the mecha.
>>
>>252868952
then why not just pilot western mechs?

I don't get western mechs they're no real psychological aspect to them, at the end of the day they're giant boxes on legs with guns taped to em, things like aura battlers, mobile suits and walker machines are more exciting because these things look humanoid

western stuff just isn't exciting for me

Like, VOTOM mechs are neat, but they're not scratching the right itch. What good non-humanoid mecha are there? Like, say, AT-STs or Battlewalkers from BF2142 or Metal Gears.

>>252869508

But they're all mecha, right? Surely there's some good non-humanoid Japanese mecha stuff.
