    You come to slowly, the sound of your cockpit struggling to come back to life. Some part of you knows it's a lost cause, and you take a deep breath and try to re-orient yourself before you bail.

    You take a moment to look at your reflection, to check for injuries.

    Let's be honest. every single player character Raven or LYNX was an autistic wunderkind of AC piloting and fighting.

    Which leads me to belive that they're like Heero Yui, only even less talkative.

    But hey, that's what comm bunnies are for, I guess.

    My vote, the protag has a serious horse fetish. No matter the chargen outcome.

    >Only one vote apparently...

    You've definitely seen better days. And worse ones for that matter.

    Looking at your reflection, you can see the ugly purple bruises starting to form where your harness caught you, and breathing in tells you you've got a cracked rib at the least.

    You also take note of the stubble on your face. Judging by the last time you shaved, you've been out for at least three hours. You slowly put on your breather and goggles, and blow the hatch...

    You were eight when it happened. Something about a shift in the Earth's poles, some massive event. Within a week the earthquakes and storms had destroyed almost half the civilized world.

    Nations collapsed, and the world turned on it's head. You were too young to really understand what that meant to your future. All that mattered at the time was that your father wasn't coming home.

    >This sequence might take a little while....
    >> AC-Guy 04/03/12(Tue)23:45 No.18567777

    You were ten when it happened. The first semblance to order returning to the world. Recovered information and research data on miniaturized reactor cores and AI algorithms gave the world a real shot at peace.

    Soon a building the size of a semi-truck could power a small city, keeping everyone alive and happy. It was a shot at a better tomorrow.

    It didn't take long for small minded men to ruin everything.

    You were Sixteen when it happened: the weaponized cores had spread like a wildfire. Soon, even bandits in the middle of the wilderness had the basic tech for it, and you found yourself drafted into a militia.

    You were coming back from training one day...

    "Hey Alex!"

    Turning around you see Lawrence, your squad wingman approaching.

    "Good to be back in town for some R&R eh? I'm really starting to hate staring at barren landscapes and not shooting bandits."

    >How do you respond?

    Lawrence immediately gives him his best parade ground snap, knowing full well it irritates you.

    "Alex. Got some new satellite readings. Looks like that migrant column changed course a while ago. They aren't coming here after all."

    "Yeah, we just had a boring walkabout in the badlands. How new's the intel?"

    "Couple hours. Doesn't look like we're going to be expecting anymore trouble for at least a week. Your team's been on the ground the most, so you got first dibs at some rest in town if you want it."

    "Say no more, We'll file out the paper-work and go."

    "Nah, get going. I'll take care of that for you."

    Lawrence cuts in. "You're nice. Too nice. You're never nice. How is this going to bite us in the ass?"

    Looking back at the sun slowly disappearing in the distance, you walk out into the colony's dome proper.

    "Sooo..." Lawrence begins as he jogs up to you, "Dave and Mooch said they'd catch up as soon as they finished some final checks on their machines. I figure we can make it to the pub, spend some dosh, get some women who love them some soldiers, do something stupid, and spend the rest of the weekend in jail."

    Elsie slugs him in the shoulder. "I'm right here."

    "Yes, yes you are. I'm sure we can find you a nice woman as ell."

    "I don't really swing that way."

    "A man can dream."

    "Anyway," As she turns to you, eyes twinkling with mischief "We could do something else that's fun, with less chance of getting a court-marshal and wasting money on booze."

    "Blasphemy, booze money is never a waste."

    "Shut up Laurie. Also, wouldn't be a bad idea to check in with your mom and sis before we end up in too deep shit either way."

    "This is Elsie."

    Elsie gives a weak wave. Seems like she's uncomfortable with this social situation.

    Ain't that just a damn shame.

    "She's your future sister in law."

    Her hand freezes mid wave, and she turns slowly to regard you, while your sister slowly cocks an eyebrow.

    "Only one reason for you to man up like that. I assume you're the father?"

    Elsie seems even more shocked.

    "God I hope so, otherwise I'm going to look like an idiot for buying that ring."

    Elsie seems to be on the verge of overcoming her shock at the situation.

    "Do I smell cookies?"

    "Yeah, Mom's pulling some 'snaps out of the oven."

    "I have fantastic timing."

    You walk past your sister, towards the kitchen while Elsie makes hand gestures and tries to remember how to talk.

    True enough. I remember my AC1 ac was just it with two exrra ammo pods for back slots. Still the machine gun is a good range, good damage and does not run out of ammo unless you are a horrid shot.

    And in 4a you're better off with assault rifles

    Still my main design philosopy is to outlast your opponents. That means heavy acs with guns that have huge ammo count and a big generator/booster to make it move like the lighter ones. Dodge the shots that need be dodged. The AC 1 and 2 Karasawa can fit in that because they were good. Can't say that for the other games

    She smirks. "You're going to have to wait for them to cool. I notice you've brought someone with you?"

    You turn to see Elsie enter the kitchen. She looks kinda cute when she's angry. You'll be sure to bring that up if you decide you hate having legs. "This is Elsie, she's a friend of mine."

    After you and Elsie agree on a temporary truce, you get a couple more cookies in you before your Mother chases you away from the pan.

    After a bit of a chat you find out that Ari's doing good in class, and those bribes to the staff to put her behind a command desk instead of a Cockpit seem to be doing well. Best she doesn't learn about that, seeing as how much she looks up to you for joining the Militia.

    Your Mom gets you to take out the trash, and on the way back in, you catch an interesting exchange. "So are you two a couple?"

    "Not really. It's mostly jokes, some sexual tension. We're friends."

    "SOME tension huh? That's a funny way of saying you lust after my brother."


    That's when you walk into the room. And you get to see your sister pantomiming sucking a dick. This is not something you ever wanted to see Ariana doing.

    Your eyes meet. Yours speaks volumes of your disapproval. Hers says only 'I regret nothing'.

    Elsie practically drags you out the door, while you say goodbye to your family, and remind Ari on the importance of dental health.

    Your Mother tells you that dinner will be at around eight if you and your 'lady friend' wanted to have a home cooked meal.

    I played the fuck out of AC3 and Nexus. By the end, I used only one core, with varying gun loadouts. It had the best armored core and tank legs and the best reactor and boosters I had available. The other parts didn't really matter.

    The loadout I used most consisted of grenade arms for ACs and 2 back chain guns for everthing else. I never bothered manuvering. You close the distance and pound whatever it is into submission.

    I beat nearly all the missions on the game with this, and I could put down nineball, or any other area opponent, in less than a minute. It's been a few years since I've played, though.

    Surprisingly enough, the bar's intact when you get there.

    Lawrence seems to be losing a game of pool. Those poor bastards have no idea how bad he's playing them. Dave's chatting with a girl who seems less than interested in his advances.

    Mooch is sitting calmly at a table.

    On the ceiling.


    He looks your way. "Elsie. Alex. Sup?"

    "Mooch, why are you on the ceiling?"

    "Less crowded."

    "HOW are you on the ceiling?"

    "SCIENCE. And duct-tape."

    He takes a long slow pull from the beer he's holding.

    Suddenly Dave's shenanigans have caught your attention. It appears that the woman wasn't interested because she was already taken. By a rather large man, it seems. One who seems to be holding a chair in a less than friendly manner when he got Dave's attention.

    [ ] See Dave run, run Dave run. See Alex Laugh. Laugh Alex Laugh.

    Mooch finds you.

    "Hey, be easy on Dave. He's the only one crazy enough to follow my insane plans."

    "Do you need him alive for these plans?"

    "Mostly. Though I do think I have a lead on making a zombie virus...."

    "Oh that? Something Dave's had me working on. He wanted to see if it was possible to have a small enough reactor core power a personal vehicle. In this case some kind of hover-bike. So far that's as small as I've managed."

    "Does the fact that it looks kinda like...."

    "A rocket dick?" Dave adds as he gets off the ground. "It's not quite what I had in mind. Then again."

    "Why do you even WANT a flying bike."

    "The... The WHAT? You're calling that thing the love commander?" Elsie always did have problems with the unique thinking pattern that makes up Mooch and Dave's world.

    "What would you call it?" Without waiting for a response, he turns and grabs Mooch and begins to wander off. "Mooch, I've been thinking about a way to extend air-time in an AC. What do you think about making one transform into a plane?"

    Harness of some kind isn't a bad idea. Maybe cover it in pockets to make up for the fact that you can't really fit a jacket into the cockpit (I feel naked if I don't have at least ten pockets spread out among my clothing, I don't really know why). The early ones having been huge bulky things kinda like a rappelling harness, but by the "now" of setting they've been reduced in size to the point that they're kinda like a pair of bandoleers...

    You suggest going back to your mother's place for dinner, Elsie seems slightly dismayed at confronting your family again, but agrees when you insist on dragging her along.

    You note that you still have most of an hour until dinner, so you take something of a scenic route there. Along the way, you pass by the school, and look up at the sky. Elsie doesn't seem to notice. You take careful note of where the best view would be.

    You walk in silence. It's almost like going on patrol, nothing to talk about, so you don't talk. Don't need to look at her to know she's there, and you sorta take comfort in the fact she is.

    It's weird though, you've been joking back and forth for almost as long as you've known each other, but until today you never really thought about her in something resembling a romantic context.

    You're kinda glad she doesn't talk.

    You aren't sure what you'd say.

    You wonder if she feels the same way.

    That's how the two of you arrive at your family's home, shortly before eight. Together in body, alone with your thoughts.

    >You guys want me to keep going? This seems like a good dropping off point, but I'm game to go for another hour or two, where there'd be another point that'd work just dandy.

    What if the harness was part of the uniform? So the distinctive outfit is a camo uniform with black stripes runing across the chest and around the shoulders, like a rock climbing harness. If you looked close, youd see the the black stripes were made out of a differnt material than the rest of the suit.

    Originanly the harnesses had to be sown into the uniforms by hand, and the strange looking uniforms became a status symbol. Now they make them standerd, but the mech boys demanded that they leave the harness visable.

    That'd be great for a comfy cockpits setting, but for some reason I've always pictured the cramped, hard to fit inside things, like in Full Metal Panic. Tiny little space where you're just barely able to move, and my interest is primarily for a setting I'm trying to cobble together to run for my group. I'm the big mecha nerd in the group and they asked me to pick a system and put together a setting and GM a mecha campaign after our current campaign (modern day, gun-runners. Basically Jormungand) ends.
    >> Anonymous 04/04/12(Wed)04:08 No.18570453
    Like I said, its a symbolic thing. In the first days, weight on the mech was more critical, so they left out the fancy seats. The stripes on the uniform are still there even though they serve no purpose. Nowadays even military aircraft are air conditioned, but the pilots still wear the flight jackets their forefathers wore to keep out the cold.

    In the end, it dosn't really matter what the uniform looks like, only that its flashy and distinctive. Like in real life.
    >> Anonymous 04/04/12(Wed)04:11 No.18570467
    Also, if the uniforms still have the metal loops that would have been used to attach them to the cockpit, then you could hang all kinds of useful shit off of them.

    When you get there, your sister answers the door again. This time she smiles when she sees the two of you.

    You go inside, and see that your mother has already set out a couple of extra plates for you.

    Dinner isn't anything extravagant: Some chicken, some potatoes, some corn.

    Elsie and your sister join you soon enough, Apparently Ari has decided to apologize for teasing her so much last time she was here.

    Dinner goes smoothly enough. Your family seems glad that you're alright, and that you have relatively normal friends as well. Everything goes quite smoothly, until your sister hits upon an awkward spot.

    "So what about your family Elsie? You didn't go visit them while you were on leave?"

    If people acually use the harness, there will also be be a set of straps around the legs connected to a reinforced belt. And the belt will have straps connected to the ones on the chest. Look up full body harnesses for reference.

    You decide to help your friend in the most inconspicuous way possible.

    By literally inhaling a piece of chicken.

    A few seconds into your chocking/coughing fit, you feel like there was probably a smarter way to do this.

    It is remarkably painful.

    After the brief panic over the affair, conversation returns to normal after you assure them that everything is in fact fine. Then your Mother decides to broach an even more uncomfortable topic.

    "So, since you brought up the topic earlier.... when exactly ARE you planning to give me grandchildren?"

    She chose to say this while you're drinking your iced tea. Making it both the second time you've chocked at dinner AND on iced tea that day.

    After dinner you help clean up, and decide to take Elsie out star gazing. There is that nice spot behind the school that you saw on the way over.

    Your mom quietly hands you a bag before you leave.

    The two of you grab your coats and leave after saying goodbye to your family.

    You wander for a while, seemingly aimless, only to end up right where you wanted to be, a small hill near the school, just under some trees. The view of the sky is just as perfect as you were hoping it would be.

    While Elsie looks up at the sky, you take a moment to inspect the bag. Inside, there's a pair of large thermal blankets, one with a checkered print and one a simple dark red.

    Tucked inside them is a pair of glasses, a bottle of wine, and a note from your mother.

    'Hey Alex, thought you might need a little help connecting with your lady friend, and Wine's the classy way to get her liquored up and easy. I would have packed condoms as well, but I want BABIES.'

    On the other, what the fuck mother.

    A feeling like somehow, your life is about to change.

    Out of the corner of your eye, you see her looking up at the sky. You don't know why, but you feel compelled to reach out. To touch her.

    Your arm reaches out, out and around. She's only about a foot away. Slowly your arm comes in, ever slower. Some part of you is afraid. Afraid of how she might react, afraid to break the silence.

    Your arm finally catches her.

    She stiffens. For a moment, for a single gut wrenching heartbeat, she freezes. Then she slowly relaxes. Then she leans into you.

    Her weight slowly settles into you, and you gently let out the breath you didn't know you were holding in.

    Then she speaks. "Hey Alex?"


    "What do you think about us?"

    "What do you mean?"

    "I mean.... I've known you for years now. You were the first person from Hope I met, other than my Father. We've been friends for most of it. You've always been there, like family should be, whenever I wanted to talk. You were the only person to come talk to me when my Dad died. I mean, we've joked about it off and on, but I've always thought of you like... a friend. Or a brother maybe." She's quiet for a long moment, the lets out a sigh. "Then today happened. I... don't know. It's like It's like I got a peek at what could be, and I'm not sure how I feel about that. I mean, I love you, you know that. You're probably the only friend I had before our squad got put together. But there's Love, and then there's LOVE love. Romantic love. I just... wanted to know how you feel."

    It's Armored Core, there are no Good Ends, only Less Bad Ends, Bad Ends, Really Bad Ends, and I Just Accidentally Everything Ends.

    Anything you might call a Good End is just a brief respite until the sequel comes out and you get your shit all fucked up anyway.

    You hold her close.

    "I don't know. I think... I think maybe I always loved you, just a little bit. I just never realized it."

    She looks at you. She seems conflicted somehow. Slowly, she pulls you and kisses you.

    Hours pass in her embrace. You never really expected this to happen.

    You wake up the next day, Elsie curled in your arms. Both of you still naked and sweating from last nights activities. You wonder what it is that woke you. Then you realize it.

    You smell smoke.

    You gently roll her off to one side, she seems less that awake still. You move quickly and see it.

    Hope, your home, the reason you fight. Hope, everything you have to live for....

    Hope is burning.

    Damn, we must have really been spent if we fucking slept though the opening attack. I can see this leading to some serious fucking survivors guilt too, if not for us, then for Elsie definitely, which she's probably going to end up blaming on us. Such is life in a semi-apocalyptic future fraught with giant mecha battles.
    >> AC-Guy 04/04/12(Wed)07:15 No.18571493

    Depends on your point of view.

    Telling Elsie that you'd be happy with friends would have led to DAAWWW and potential relationship stuff down the road.

    It would also have placed her in the barracks, and in an amazing place to try and stop this.

    If you had gone the non committal route, you would have ended up making out briefly, then going back into town to find out what happened to your friends after you left.

    As far as Damage to Hope goes, it was the second best choice, and had the best chance at serious romance.

    Right now? When the quest picks up again, you're going to be running damage control on all fronts.

    Hope's dead, but maybe you can save most of the people from dieing. Do a good job and you might get to keep the girl too.

    >> AC-Guy 04/04/12(Wed)07:29 No.18571574

    As far as Cores and capabilities go, think AC5. There's a bit smaller, and have slightly less insane power.

    At least to start with. CRAZY SHIT is going to happen when we hit endgame territory. Seriously, it's going to look like something directed by Michael Bay on the action side of things.
    >> Anonymous 04/04/12(Wed)07:32 No.18571592
    So, yes, we essentially chose the worst possible route, both in terms of long-term relationship with Elsie, preventing damage to the town, and keeping our family safe.

    Ugh, I have not played AC:V yet, and I do not plan on doing so after the reviews I have read.

    If I wanted a more tactical feel to my mech games, I'd go play Front Mission. I play Armored Core for the same reason I play Ace Combat, so I can be an over the top badass who takes on whole armies and has vicious solo duels with enemy pilots.

    And what did I get with the latest installment for each game, a watered down shit pile pandering to the masses.
    >> AC-Guy 04/04/12(Wed)07:36 No.18571602

    Burned hand teaches best friend. I don't pull punches in my games.

    That said, as far as the relationship with Elsie goes.... A lot of couples that go through hell together like this don't make it. Some do. Those that do tend to be the diamond hard unbreakable relationships after the fact.
    >> AC-Guy 04/04/12(Wed)07:42 No.18571642

    Personally, I think Armored Core gets better with every single game.

    Think about it: In the first series, starting with the original Armored Core, It was testing the viability. "Can we make this game, and will it be good?".

    Starting with Armored Core 2, they started focusing of different aspects of the game to try and maximize that one aspects potential. The most obvious one of these changes was in the 4 series (4 and 4A) where the focus was on High mobility combat.

    Right now, they're exploring a more tactical approach to combat.

    I think by the time we hit series nine or ten, we're going to see some CRAZY SHIT in terms of insanity.

    AC5 is great, if you can get a half-way decent team to play with.

    Seriously, that alone takes the score from like a 7 to a 9.5 out of ten. Some of the shit you get to do once your team kicks into gear...

    HEYHEYHEYHEYHEYHEYHEY! I'm going to tell you something important now, so you better dig the wax out of those ears of yours, and listen! The reputation of Armored Core Quest echoes far and wide... When they talk about its bad ass protagonist, the man of indomitable spirit and masculinity, they're talking about us! The Mighty Alex Raston! Just who the hell do you think we are? Our core is the core that's gonna bust straight through heaven and earth and even tomorrow!

    That assumes that they learn the lesson you want them to learn.

    That said, we need to run home and make sure that our family is okay. On the way we need to appropriate a vehicle and once our mom and sis are safely in a bunker, get to the base and into our AC.

    All the the videos I've watched and reviews I've read turn me off. The whole team aspect is one of my biggest gripes too. I'm not a big fan of mulitplayer in any game, unless I'm playing with a very select, and very small group of people. The fact that so much revolves around team play now really irks me.

    I don't like the scaled down aspect of the game either. After the huge and fast paced fights and interesting places that AC4 and FA took me, city fighting seems to dull and boring. AC:V is too much like a mecha version Modern Warfare/Battlefield.

    As someone who owns and plays the game, it's soooo much better than you think.

    There's a story there, there's also enough side-quest missions to keep you busy. Seriously, there has to be at least a hundred hours of game in the single players bits alone, and it's all as solid as AC4's.

    But when you play the game with friends... You only need like five people to access the biggest, craziest shit.

    And the shit does get quite big and crazy.

    Imagine a robot arms fort the size of one of AC4's MAPS. Covered in enemy ACs. And it's you, and a couple of your friends going A-TEAM on it.

    My problem is I don't even KNOW one person who I would be interested in playing with, which means unless I want to team up with some retard online.

    I hear they also took out Arena, and you need to grind to get money/parts now.

    I was able to solo Arms Forts in FA, I want to be a one man A-Team. It's that mission-specific hyper-optimization that made me a one man army that I found fun.

    If I wanted tactics and team work, again, I'd play Front Mission, or a Chrome Hounds if the servers were still up.

    Kamina used the boasting as a way to deal with being scared out of his wits. He only kept up the boasting because everybody expected him to be the fearless badass leader he always claimed to be when they were still down in Jiha Village. In short, that, my friend, is the joke.
