I feel a little shameless plugging of Armored Core 5 is in order. The guys at From software released this game with very little fanfare last week, and I doubt the Giant Bomb staff is going to give it any attention.
And I feel this game deserves a little attention. If you like the From Software guys because they make games that are challenging, have depth and require a bit of effort from the community to learn the systems than this game might be right up your alley. The setting is definately not as popular in the west as the dark fantasy of the Souls games, but it has that hallmark quality of sucking you in and consuming you if you let it.
It is more multiplayer focused with teams fighting over territory, but personally I am also just having fun with building different AC's (basically big robot suits) and going through the story and side missions in the game. All of the missions can be done in co-op, with team members or you can even hire other players as mercenaries to help.
Feel free to ask me questions about the game, but think of it as the first week of Dark Souls - everybody is still figuring stuff out. There are also teams on the xbox360 and ps3 should you want to play with some duders from this community.
