Armored Core V, I am Excite
Call me a masochist, but I love games that force you to play extremely long missions…and I get my jollies even more when they’re mech simulator games like Armored Core V.
It’s true that not every game to feature extremely long single player missions is all that fun (I’m looking at you GTA4) but games like Armored Core or before it, Mechwarrior, seemed to be at their peak when they forced you to actually spend some time nailed down to the seat instead of being able to have a mission during your lunch break.
With this announcement today that AC5 will have missions that span anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour to complete, I hate to say but I can’t help but get excited at this aspect of the gameplay. Armored Core is easily one of my most loved series and From Software has shown over the last decade or so that they clearly know what they’re doing when it comes to this series and giant-mech games.
