News: Armored Core V Emblem Contest and Bosses

Posted on : 30-04-2012 | By : | In : News

Hardware: ,


In a cool community based move, From Software are running an emblem design contest for Armored Core V. The winners will receive a “special award” as well as have the emblems included in a free DLC emblem pack. Unfortunately, the means by which you submit the emblems requires you to use the ACV Link feature. This is something that’s only available in the Japanese release of the game and links the game to your profile over at the Armored Core Official Partnership site. The contest will finish on the 10th May at 3pm.

Before people get all pissy at this, first blame Namco Bandai for removing the feature and second shout at them (not From Software) to include it. Since the game’s release abroad, From Software have been blamed for a bizarre amount of the community issues with the game. When in reality that’s Namco Bandai’s responsibility, something they massively dropped the ball on no less.

That said, Namco Bandai did manage to sort out a preview of all five of the bosses this weekend. Normally bosses only trigger due to territorial disputes but considering the fact that we’re still waiting for the patch, they unlocked them a little early to help appease the now pretty pissed fanbase. The bosses are a partial nod to the Arms Forts in Armored Core For Answer but more a reference to the old massive MT’s players used to face in the original games. Whilst it’s recommended to play against them with four players, you can actually take them out on your own (normally with some judicious usage of Overed Weapons).

A link to North American’s Namco Bandai email so I can yell at them about a couple of things? lol

here you go everyone!

Release the lions!

No, no GOD DAMN IT! From shouldn’t be granted immunity from this shit, they’ve been doing it since Armored Core 4. You don’t need a fucking degree to know Namco Bandai US is a shit publisher, I mean look at the stuff they pulled with Tales of Vesperia for the PS3.

From software is retarded, I’m sorry. Great designers but lacking in common sense, that, or they don’t give a damn about anyone outside of Japan.

It’s got nothing to do with common sense and “not caring” about anyone outside Japan. From Software have no ownership of the games that are published outside of Japan by a third party (such as SEGA, Ubisoft, Agetec and Namco Bandai). It’s how publishers work and the problems the Western fanbase have gone through are entirely attributable to them.

This is pretty much truth, publishers practically have the final say in pretty much everything, Not so much the developers. Once a producer snags hold of an IP, even if said IP is the brainchild of a single developer, it belongs to the producer, NOT the developer. Furthermore, when you bring a title overseas, it’s completely in the hands of the producers.

so Cacophanus’ words here are pretty much gospel.

I miss how when Agetec did the games they took a long ass time to come out, but there were no problems, and they even added in big changes to the games at Froms request.
