One Mech is in the back. Doing fuck all but to remind you they exist
Alternatively, mech battles are relegated to cut scenes onry.
The only thing you can do is out fit them with guns/accessories.
Bikini DLC for Cockpit scenes.
Pre-order for White Glint, Nineball, Zinaida color schemes

It's like 8 seconds but it felt really nice. AC is something magical.
It's fun thinking up horror scenarios for the future of AC.
Hope you fellow pilots have a nice Halloween.
and who are you feeling now? better? or need more lolis?
> AC is something magical.
Shame that ´people don't apreciated.
> fellow pilots have a nice Halloween.
Man while Halloween isn't that important here I want to get a plague doctor mask, nowhere to be found....or something like pic related
I know that feeling as well Raven, hearing Foundation man mock my existence as an AC pilot, its almost like I never left.
I did but I always liked it more with the menu and background sound effects more.
Well I would be better if I could
"FEEL" some Loli's, however I think my cough was getting better. Then I got called away for dinner with a bunch of people, the food there was a bit too much for me/
Ohhhhhh Ranker~ I am having so much fun with ACVD again tonight. Still having people around and winning games, although I did lost to Ravdeon because of Rogan but this is really good. Just had a game that was pretty much going against me because of my setup but tank kicks solves a lot of problem.
The pain you feel it too right, not choosing the right system for AC. The phantom pain that you're missing out a lot of fun with us. I felt it too Ranker. That will change once we sortie in our loli battle machines in AC6 not for revenge against DS but for the fact that we belong on the battlefield.
>loli battle machines
>watching Chelonian's old videos
>see a comment on one from "a year ago"
>it's from Taka
Anyway, in the video we ran into Vanaheim back when they had the guy with the cat emblem who apparently turned into a massive dick once he went to JP.
Oh man I can't believe I'd forgotten about this
>four of us against three Enders
>Enders down to their last guy

>right as he eats Mega Blade along with me
That's really nice, must had made that guy's day. Now since I can play VD again I should use UW's more often.
Rest well Ranker.
I tried using them in Reaper Squad sorties, its like gambling to the max.
So I bought pic related on ebay today, now I gotta wait for it to arrive. I've played a majority of the AC games, including Last Raven and Nine Breaker, so I'm familiar with the game in general, but is there anything I should know about Nexus in particular?
Also, anyone know where I can buy a copy of Last Raven in Australia. My PC does not like emulating PS2 games.
If you've played Ninebreaker and Last Raven, then you've already got the general feel of Nexus down. Just mind the heat, it's much less friendly.
I don't know, the timing is pretty tight.
It's towards the end.
>Forgetting to put my amps on.
>All those whiffed kumo swipes
Young chelonian was truly king of the scrubs.
can a loli cosplay as white glint today?
Guys please, you're embarrassing me.
>tfw you're /acg/'s literal edgemaster
No problem Anon, sure is a cute wallpaper.
On another subject, here is today's lonely conquest report. I was able to find a lot of games although its mostly UNAC teams with a single player. Even if so I had a good time and won all those encounters with my cute UNAC daughters.
I know that's the "norm" but i like to hold myself to a higher standard. Not in a mustard pkek sense of superiority, or a neogaffian sense of self-entitlement or worship of a company, but rather I like to try and be a better teammate, a better player, a good example of someone who enjoys video games without obsessing over them, or getting mad over them. When I don't stick to that standard, it makes me feel like I'm failing myself.
I want to be a Rai-Den, not a Celebrity Ash.
Next time just post your PSN and remind others that you're here for SNFA.
Kissing only? Can we go beyond that....
but giant robots only ever have faces anon though has there even been a hentai that had characters jump out of their giant robots to have sex in one of the giant robots cockpit area? if not we should make it
>though has there even been a hentai that had characters jump out of their giant robots to have sex in one of the giant robots cockpit area?
It's called Zone of the Enders. Or as we call it, Bone of the Enders.
That's why Penny is the purest AC pilot. Then that engrish, gotta love those jp
>no bully please
I will love to play games with him,
or any of you guys
I can't, I bought the 360 with the help of my brother.
My best Hope would be asking a friend to lend me his PS3 for a while and see if I can rent ACVD or FA somewhere. The problem is that said friend can't live without his PS3 and he don't like AC.
Oh then its all the way to the donation clinic for you Ranker.
>chelonian forgetting the amps
>that 3v3 vs. enders
>watching chelonian videos
>ahab: smoked him out of his hole like a rabbit
>immediately after, hear the EXACT same laugh from me in-game
that was creepy
my "why" was in response to you dying
i figured we had already won at that point and was essentially just fucking around cause i knew he had another mega blade
so i was asking why we BOTH died
man these videos are great
penny sharp as usual
Hehehe, Penny you and your puns its so Hilarios.
the series is always about the powaaaah of MUUUUUSIC. I guess they go with idol pilots though
Rai-den is bloody fucking awesome though
Heard it was boring. I guess Ill try it now.
I dont remember much of the edgemaster's decal position. so here i go
>Heard it was boring. I guess Ill try it now.
Is not anime of the season (that title probably goes for one-punch man) but since the serie focus on 2 normal soldiers taking out the arms forts while the things is fighting another one, you get good parts of the things fighting each other.
Look alive, boyo. You've got marching orders.
Oh cripes, I actually said that?
Which video? I need to hear it.
Chapter 1 is when he first starts using laser blades and scores several friendly kills.
Chapter 2 is when he tells me he wants to learn kumos so I teach him the basics and how to find the sweet spot. He then gets with Diss to learn the fancier kumo tricks that I don't know about.
Chapter 3 is where he's finally putting that crap into practice and doing work. And also killing teammates.
>actually using kumos
>not target guns
>ban finally wore off
gr8. What workshop is this?
>the guy with the cat emblem
I remember that guy. Neko or Gatto or something.
Embarrassing death story time, I've got a lot.

>Which video? I need to hear it.
oddly i can't find it at the moment, it was definitely close in time to the video you posted 2 days ago
i think it was on the small-ish city map with the tall building in the middle and all sorts of tunnel-y nonsense on the ground, which (if memory serves) is to where one of the enemies tried to escape, hence the smoking out
i could be wrong though as the only match i've been able to find with both of us on that map was against an enemy squad who had CANIS as a merc
that and i have a terrible memory in general
>favorite part of all AC games are the aesthetics of my ACs
>can't use tanks in VD because they hold their weapons all stupid
Could they have seriously not changed the direction of the wrists before final release?
>26 people with 175 posts
sounds about right.
Will we ever get out of that status or is just a long and slow path to the grave?
DON'T YOU DARE DIE ON ME.
Kawata Shojo did it for a decade now, and they're still kicking. We have a ton of more games to discuss, so we're not dead yet.
I think it is. At the very least, the explosions are prettier.
No. Not even halfway there, I believe. The concept is about 15 years old, I think.
Not really. Uzis make for good shieldbreakers.
I recall someone once telling me that Lisa and Liliana were references to Dracula. I never bothered to verify that, but that might be the point of the names.
Wait, wasn't nyan part of his name?
So it's not that old. It feels like it considering the general. Those weirdos have surpassed several thousand. What do they even talk about?
>Discussing why hanako is the best girl and the only one that matters, unless you have shit taste liking Lilly more.
Rin is the best though. I don't even have to go out on a limb to explain why. Covering all her good points would be as easy as a flick of the wrist.
Yeah, that was it. Man, from what Sheild told me there was interest on his part for joining the Guns but he said he'd already promised a friend to join his team.
Shame that ended up being Vanaheim.
Also shame that he turned out to be a huge dick.
But was he really Japanese? Seems weird to start on INT and then eventually get JP. Or maybe I'm just mixed up on how things actually played out?
No idea. I make it a point to not have business there.
>unless you have shit taste liking Lilly more.
Boy I will fly out to Malaysia and find you
and then something awful will happen on the flight back and that will hang over your head for the rest of your life.
Still no Armored Core.
>not Dark Souls or Bloodborne
>not liking JRPG
What is your problem?
I'll tell you my problem. Every modern JRPG is the exact same group of cliches shoved into the same trashy script.
>we have some spunky kids
>and they fight satan
>and they have love and friendship
>kawaii uguu fanservice
>awkward, cringeworthy anime scenes, like the typical bathhouse scene, and the part where they eat food at a table and pronounce weird jap crap like onigiri
>the romance section
>the high school section
>poorly hidden plot twists (the guy who looks like your brother is actually your brother! egad!)
If 4chan didn't have a post limit, I could post more.
I would like to see a jrpg with ACLR type of setting.
Some of your opinion I can agree with but I haven't really played too much jrpg's. Mostly the suikoden and SMT games.
Fun fact: I never played a FF game
ya gotta play a reeeaaaal man's jrpg
seriously though, strange journey is the jrpg I would most recommend to anyone.
Ruined world where strange weapons/creatures appears and you have to kill any potencial hero to avoid these creatures getting stronger if they fight them?
If you ever play a FF, play from VI and back, since VII the quality vary some good, some decent and some lame but, NEVER, BY EVERTHING THAT IS GOOD, PLAY XIII AND IT'S SEQUELS.
I've only really enjoyed one RPG this gen, and it's not even from Japan. I'll let you guess which one.
It also suffers from dumb stuff that limits how much I can enjoy it, but it's like dirty sink water that keeps me from dehydrating in this drought of decent RPGs.
I've been trying to do an all viera run but the rng gods have forsaken me and I am getting no vieras trying to join my team, and saving once you see a prospect only changes job not race
>implying youll step in this third world country Malaysia
Come at me bruv, I'll throw dragon fruit to your plane.
Suikoden is da shit brah. Trading salt all day, erry day.
Hey man, the game's kinda good, but I am not arsed to go genocide. Although the arts are a bit tumblr tier, I'm pretty sure it gonna die down like FNAF.
Don't push me, boy. I'll show up and woo and awe you with the power of my
TI-83and then I'll pillage all the dragonfruit and the rambutan, too. Then it'll all disappear somewhere in the Pacific and nobody will ever know what happened.
Wrong number. Try again.
well those are also awesome games, but SJ has a rare atmosphere you wont be finding anywhere else, not even in smt
also mastema best character
What does that even mean? And why is everyone on the rest of the site suddenly so weeaboo? I keep seeing segoi and desu and senpai-chan and all that. Didnt that stray restrained on /a/?
Suikoden 3 will always be my personal favorite. I had so much fun with that game and all the time I spent on idolizing the Flame Champion.
Dear Lord Ahab, its ACI question time again. Well thanks to the 2m drops now I am sitting at 9m credits and my two alt accounts both had two of the 2m drops. I main Morgans on all my accounts and they are all at level 10 with TLS at level 4 and planning to upgrade it to level 5. Along with a level 10 F15STDFGT mostly spamming LAGM on alt1 and level 10 Shinden also spamming 6aam and LASM with alt2. What should I do next or should I just save fuel and plan for level 10 plus?
Get that Morgan to 15 senpai that shit is DANK. Also work on MPBM, that shit is also dank but just a bit less dank than the TLS.
>people on /acg/ don't know who sheild is
Goes to show how much time really has passed.
Kind of scary.
MPBM is already at level 5 but I rarely use that flashbang anymore. TLS is where my fun is at and I could have leveled it up to 5 on my main already. I think i'll gradually move it up to 15 but after level 11 on the high cst planes the returns gets diminished for the price we pay. Now I am just gonna take it easy and save up fuel for incoming idol-apocalypse, warwolf planes can go home.
Just finished 2 essays and 6 hours worth of engineering homewrk, on the plus side for the day, my armored core collection got bigger. the physical copies of the V and vd art books came in, along with FreQuencies Reprises and VD disks. also put in an order for 2 of the ACV infinity series peripheral kits since they are half off on amazon right now.
anyone else make recent purchases?
that fucking cat
>potentially good game emerges from sea of utter shit
i don't really care it's not armored core anymore
we all knew it wasn't going to be armored core, anyway
>If 4chan didn't have a post limit, I could post more.
you're nowhere near the limit there
anyways i highly suggest resonance of fate, everything about that game was so atypical i just absolutely fell in love with it (main character is actually skilled, they fight with GUNS not swords, no magic, puzzle-based world map exploration, battle system that puts gun battles on the same level of beauty as ballet while simultaneously melting your brain as you learn it)
super fun if you like "weird" games
oddly, it's actually funny too. the vocal performances are fantastic & the jokes don't get lost in translation. i don't know how they did it.
it's a shame my favourite plane from AC04 became a scrub boat
or was that the SU-47?
either way, my two favourite planes from AC04 had their reputations tarnished
>ACV infinity series peripheral kits since they are half off on amazon right now
intriguing. never bought a model kit before. should i? or is it just an exercise in frustration?
also, what's "half-off"? i don't want to spend 100 beaver bux on a toy i can't even play with
if you havent touched a plamo kit in your life i would reccomend getting 1-2 gundam HG kits to familiarize yourself with plamo building, you dont want to fuck up with any of the AC kits, as they are a fair amount of work is needed to produce one. the end result is fantastic though. currently my backlog of AC kits consists of the 2 peripheral sets i ordered yesterday, a R.I.P. Blue magnolia kit, a 2nd white glint with v.o.b kit im using for a custom paint job. i reccomend a cheap but relatively usefull tool kit like this one
i started with one of the older variable infinioty kits, which had slightly larger parts and werent as fragile as the ACV/VD kits but the AC/VD kits tend to have more posable joints and fit better in cramped spaces due to the fact that they are smaller overall despite being the same scale as the pre V kits. overall its a really fun hobby and i wouldnt discourage anyone from going for it.
im a poorfag too, just one with a part time job and who goes to school full time, and prioritizes plamo kits over actual food in my weekly budget.
>i could eat chicken ramen for 3 straight weeks and get a sweet AC kit
> i could eat a healthy diet that would promote wellness and make me not get so goddamn sick all the time
life is suffering
My problem with models is that you can't play with them much. I feel a little embarassed in admitting this, but I prefer the action figure ACs that can, at least with the zinaida figure, take a beating and keep on cheating.
I like the models too, but they're flimsy.
you can play with models anon, half the fun is in posing them and messing around with the peripherals. at least for me it is. some kits you might need a bit of extra glue so it can take a bit more wear and tear but when my roomates arent around i shamefullly admit that i run around setting up my ANGI kit with dual sniper cannons and make autistic shooting noises
>playing with toys
>making stupid noises.
>curling up in a comfortable blanket, some hot cocoa, and chicken tendies, while setting up massive battle scenes with 20 + AC robot playthings
The great war they had against the Warhammer figures
Remember, in 40k, EVERYTHING is an arms fort.
It seems to be a stupid way of referring to Undertale.
Wordfilters. Very, very much appreciated wordfilters.
You should start by focusing less on your alts, holy crap. You're going to burn out before you know it if you keep that up.
I totally know the feeling
Yes both the F15MTD and SU47 had their reputations ruined in ACI. However its both planes are too beautiful not to be used in sorties. So yeah I am with you, I love them both as well. Also about the AC plamo's they're really detailed and requires some experience in plamo so like PSPanon said, get some cheapo HG's as a starter.
Yeah pretty much the NEXT line all has some flimsy parts but there's always the glue.
I still do that sometimes when I get too stressed.
>making qb and ob noises pleases me very much
Right now since I am only playing laser tags with my alts its still fun to me to see those accounts grow. Maybe later on I'll do less.
you sound like if you have expirience Sabbath?
System switched to normal mode.
i just had this delusion/hallucination that from released a sequel to VD for next gen consoles
thanks for the info
can't recall what's on my wishlist at the moment.
i might buy dark souls 2: PS4 edition if it goes cheap, i never played the DLC and heard good things.
and my 3DS has been underused recently, might have to change that
but even old games are still full price
i'll wait and see if anything that interests me pops up.
there's not really much on the horizon that i'm excited for either. yakuza 5 should be releasing soon, i pre-ordered that shit. i can't really think of anything else.
Hey /acg/ I have a question, I just bought a Vita today and I'm trying to download the armored core games available (Silent line and lost raven.I think) but they're not appearing in theplaystation store, any help would be greatly appreciated
Oh, well, since those have "chapter #" I thought that the rest already were done, but you draws are always appreciated.
silent line, ac3, last raven and ac1 are all compatible on the vita! congradulations on your purchase and have fun. they handle a lot better on the vita over the psp 3k that i have due to the multiple joysticks.
He was saying he couldn't find them.
Only thing I can think of is to make sure you're spelling the name right.
Maybe you could try buying it off the site?
Rest well Ranker and thanks for all the bumping duty my friend.
Anon from before here, so going to.the site the vita AC are there but when I sign in it only shows V and verdict day stuff, is it because of my region? I'm in australia so am I just going to have to make an eu account to download it?
I am thinking of artillery attacks with missiles or CE guns for offensive. Then ECM, energy or other type of jammers as support. The question is should it reload like recons or have it set to limited ammunition; for the sake of balance and all.
So you recommend that it be like that extra armor from Robotech on the PS2? Where it's like a super arsenal that you unload all at once? I like that idea.
>UW with Levitation System
>you can boost in any direction, vertically upwards, and go at SANIC speed. You use weapon available at hand (pile kumos or whatever)
it would be TITS.
Fallout 4: Dialogue Wheel Edition
I always wanted to do comic. Maybe I'll actually do it one day.
Also I just happen to watch DYRL, man it was a fucking trip. 10/10.
i could dig the idea of an MT mount on some of the VD ACs.
you can pick up a sniper cannon turret and mount it on your back mid combat for an improv weapons system, or heavy shield and ciws from the heavy tread police acs.
what i could really dig for the OW would be sort of half of one of the transport helos mounted on your back modified, for extra mobility, extra weapon storage, and two large shields mounted on the sides that help boost defense. that would be pretty cool. or a gun in ACVD that shoots amidas.
by the looks it would be just a "support OW" since it lacks weapons, it would work like a gigantic boost of defense and mobility, and use your normal weapons, the question here how much should last and should have somekind of "charge" or just a buff?
>or a gun in ACVD that shoots amidas.
The best we can hope is a "organic" gun that was created using the amidas as base and shoot the same type of liquid as them.
Ricky you are not Wolcott. Go back to adventuring and being Highlander's waifu.
I remember a few posts from someone with a similar idea. I can't remember all the details, but it was horrendously unbalanced. Was that you?
Fellow Ausbro here. Yes you need to make a US account and activate that account on your Vita before you can buy & download the AC portables. You may want a spare memory card for your US account too, I believe you'd have to format one you have already to use a different account on it.
draw your favourite AC as fast as possible
I'm bad in paint. Sorry.
Good thing i majored in art class.
Thank, did some digging around last night and also found this out aswell, gonna go grab a card and set everything up, sucks that we can't get them in kangaroo land but oh well
I really like that one.
