@emkplayboy6 "I'm excited for this game since I love the armored core series should be exclusive to ps as it was before!" WHY? Why can everybody just play this game and become fans of AC? PS: I have both PS3 and XB360.

This is good. I've kinda missed the online experience from CH. It's also good to hear that their trying to make the game balanced, CH lacked that. I think... If the the game is good. People that used to play CH would come on hear to live (what used to be CHs') experience again. But then, there's also people that boosts the the campaign war. I'm talking "JUGGERNUT" those guys boosted the war every turn, so I'm thinking it be a good idea to look into it. They are not the only ones, there is another squad that did the same thing too.

This is good news, the story mode in these games has been terrible and the online has suffered from a lack of attention. Ditching the single player is just what this game needs.

Did he really say online only? I took it as the entire game will be online meaning every mode would have an online mode also. Edit: NM re-watched it and he said no offline story. I still find it hard to believe that they will exclude all potential paying customers with no internet. Maybe something was lost in translation?

Sucks that it is going to be online only....that means when they shut down the servers you will never be able to play the game again, even if you have the disk in your 360. =(

Looking forward for the next chapter! I've been a Raven since day one (Armored Core on PS) so this ol' dog of war says: bring it on!!!

Coolest most awesome Mech that was every even conceivably believable was the one from District 9.

Wow, it looks like AC5 is going to be a continuation of what we saw in Demon's Souls from a graphical standpoint...i.e. it actually looks pretty nice when held next to other current-gen games but won't buckle the engine the way their better looking PS2 games (like King's Field IV) seemed to do.

@Strathdor I agree i appreciate psn being free but i also got both i think you get what you pay for. The interface is so much better for live. But yeah that's not gunna get as many potential buyers as it would otherwise.

@ResidnetEvil777 I stopped buying live cards because I own a PS3 which is free online and both consoles basically get the same thing so really its hurting Xbox live more by continuing with this subscription method.

@Strathdor Then they'd be smart enough to not get it or to just upgrade. Def worth it.

Ever since i played Ac2 i wished they would show the pilots and add an interesting story with character development. Still fun games though, i poured a lot of hours in tweakin my warmachine's stats.

The flaw about the online is that Xbox Live Silver members will not be able to play this game as it requires online in order to play it unless Microsoft allows Silver members to play online free for this game.

We need a good mech combat sim, I hope PC gets MechWarrior back as well................ Also a new Mech Assault would be nice for Xbox360 too Microsoft.

I'm actually more psyched about the soundtrack. Every Armored Core game has a magnificent soundtrack, and I can only wonder how this will be. However, I'm still psyched for the game too.

If this game's good, I hope its players play it for a long time, and hopefully younger audiences will continue to pour in. It's the only way the game will last. And it's gotta last!!! It's Armored Core! Graphics amazing, AC's look better than ever! -I live this game!! oh, and love this game, too

Srry Guys but ik gotta say this, don't you wonder ? where is are High Speed Mecha Action from for answer ? Are they just gonna kill it and make it look chromehounds , and les ZOE 2 ?, I think we all should write or call or what ever to kojima to start putting some real work down for the 1 and only ZOE3 Amsterdamm!! Guerrilla Jah het zijn die kut negers uit holland weer What you guys should truly do is check out Another century for ps 3

@emkplayboy6 Oh, Armored Core has most assuredly been around longer than Chromehounds, but the setup of Armored Core 5 seems to have been molded to fit Chromehound's model of team-based, objective capture and hold style gameplay with options for customization.

ZOE2 is still the best mecha game around... I would prefer playing it again than AC5...

@Xenowad_90 I think armored core was around before chrome hounds, I think don't mark my words but i remember armored core way before chrome hounds ever came about! I'm excited for this game since I love the armored core series should be exclusive to ps as it was before!

Sounds alot like Chrome Hounds: Armored Core Edition. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing at all, I'm looking forward to it.

more of the same, though AC4 was disappointing, dont know I just didnt like it. I dont see anything here to keep my hopes high.

Hoping this kicks butt. I enjoyed Evolved's multiplayer and wanted more, but there were just too many bad designs decisions, overpowered players, and too few players to continue playing.

Chromehounds still stands as the best online game I have ever played. I wish AC didnt have so many heat seeking weapons. I miss one shoting cockpits from miles away; judging distance and enemy speed to arc my 4 sabres over the length of the map.

I want this game only to watch the full CGI intro, which in all AC franchise is famous for being awesome!

So its Armored Core meets Chromehounds? Sounds nice; lets just hope it doesn't A: Suffer the same balance issues Chromehounds did early on and B: Doesn't die immediately after launch. Off-Topic: Is it just me, or does every single avatar that Gelugon Baat ever have look like she just got done doing something naughty, or is about to do something naughty?

I'm just amazed that there's still any buildings to be knocked down 5 games in :p Looks promising to be fair, I'll keep an eye on it.
