Nineball Armored Core Ver.

Another thing I didn't know I needed!

For me, the original Armored Core really was the "watershed moment" that you describe. When I was a wee lad watching Robotech, my favorite scene was when Max faced Miriya in the arcade. THAT was the video game I wanted - when would games let us move and fight like that? When I first played Armored Core in college, I felt like that day had arrived.

I played the heck out of that game, with a special enthusiasm for light mecha with machineguns that could jump around firing wildly, to fulfill my Valkyrie fantasies. I still have my copy around someplace (looking just as rough as yours!), even though my PS1 has been gone for ages. I actually didn't keep up with later consoles, so I never played any of the sequels. But the original definitely has a special place in gaming my memory.

I like the look of later-series kits, but I've never picked any up. This, however... this I need. It may not be as crazy looking as those later designs, but it pushes all of my nostalgia buttons. Thanks so much for showing it!
