Armored Core VI’s use of gray could inspire a new generation of carpets


Earlier this year I compared MMO Lost Ark to the gray carpet, in the MMO Lost Ark sense is exactly like a gray carpet: trendy but dull. At the time, I was looking for a new – and absolutely necessary – experience at my feet, so I reached out to a local Carpet Seller to purchase the aforementioned luxury. In the end, he seemed pleased when I rebelled against the masses and opted for sunny corn.

But the latest Armored core VI trailers from this year Geoff Award gave me a contemplative mood. “Perhaps”, I thought, “Carpet Man would appreciate FromSoftware’s use of gray”. While the matte floor surface isn’t visible, could the trailer trigger the gray’s redeeming arc?

I’ll be the first to admit that I know nothing about the Armored Core series. Technically, I suppose, I know that games have big robots fighting each other, but that’s it. And it never bothered me, either, because machines can’t tumble down cliffs like the deer in Oblivion. They only fire big gatling guns and rarely flinch, because they are thoughtless, emotionless metal plates. Yawn, am I right?

Then, at the Geoff Awards, I saw “FromSoftware” pop up on the screen, having just witnessed some flaming apocalypse world (it wouldn’t be FromSoftware without fire). and binder, right?). Then: blame! GREY. There was ash all over the gaff, with gray skies and the dilapidated ruins of a gray building. Even the color of the font they use is gray, not white (apart from the “FromSoftware” pop-up) not white. A gray robot with a backpack lifts a gray limb off the floor.

Today I learned that Rubicon is a river in Italy and not just one of the best brands of drinks to buy at a gas station. However, the use of gray here is great, isn’t it?

And I know I’m only evaluating Armored Core on the CG trailer, which doesn’t look like how I’m aiming for Lost Ark’s more metaphorical gray color. However, I believe the Armored Core has the ability to redeem the gray in Carpet Man’s eyes. The use of gray in the game trailer is unlike my Dell monitor stand or the cover of a Fourth Edition copy of the classic writing reference book The Elements Of Style by Strunk and White. No, it charred and chipped and what do you get if I pull my Dell monitor stand over some shingle or nail my Elements Of Style to a nail bed. Gray is not luxury, it is shabby luxurious.

I could see the Carpet Man’s eyes light up with renewed excitement as various machines came into view and their parts snap into place. Look at all the nuances! Smoke and gray streaks from the helicopter wings! Real machines like ancient warriors used to to be the embodiment of primordial gray, before man watered it down and dyed their silly little curtains with it. “Oh, a little sunlight is too much for you?”, these super bots will say. “Grow up. We mechs have to deal with Rubicon’s fires, damn it.”

And Carpet Man will chronicle the machine’s history and see his stocked gray carpets in a new light. Maybe he’ll sell off his stock and order some sheet metal and start his own trend toward cold, unfeeling floors. I hope he does. Maybe one day I’ll be back, when I too want to play Armored Core VI in my silly little living room and want to replace my silly little rug with some of the most shabby chic metal panels. on the market.

Thanks to FromSoftware, maybe gray can be cool again.
