"Back in 2006 there was not much going for the Xbox 360 in regards to engrossing online play. There was Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter, which was great, but that was it.
That is, however, until the release of From Software's Chromehounds that summer, an online-focused mech shooter that featured a three-faction real-time war with an insane amount of customization. It was not a runaway success, sure, but I was still upset that a sequel was never produced.
Fortunately, that has changed, sort of, with Armored Core: Verdict Day, a seemingly spiritual successor to that 2006 title, and I knew it from the instant I saw it.", writes Destructoid.
