Getting neither (yet, not ready for a new game at this time), but am more interested in Astral Chain. I'll buy that eventually, which may not be the case with DxM.

Download prologue demo of daemon x machina to see if you like it

I don't have either games yet, but astral chain has critical acclaim while daemon has mixed reviews

I'd definitely get Astral Chain.

While I thought the first demo of DxM to be decent(didnt go far in it) I see myself getting that this month, but if I didn't have AC I'd get that first.

I haven't played either (played the DxM demo a few months ago, it was fun) but I am an old school Armored Core fan, and the DxM demo scratched that itch pretty well. Once I finally finish XB2 and Torna, I will play DxM.

I did not vote in the poll, because Astral Chain does not interest me. At all. So I won't taint the results.

As someone who has played both a lot, I would say go with Astral Chain. DxM is a fun action game and has great customization, but even with the improvements I believe it is the weaker title. Astral Chain feels more polished and I think plays better, also the story is lot more interesting and actually makes sense, unlike DxM.

Obviously two very different games, but if you watch a couple videos on each I'm sure you'll make the right decision for YOU.

Astral Chain is much easier to recommend bc I think most people will enjoy it more. I’ve played DXM for about six hours so far, though, and I’d take those six hours over the six best hours I spent with AC, personally.

Dameon X Machina for me. But I'm more of a Monster Hunter sort of action gamer than a Bayonetta sort of action gamer.

Played, enjoyed, and beat both games though for all that is worth. The real difference for me is that I'm still playing Daemon X Machina while Astral Chain was just a sort of "won and done" deal. I had no desire to S+ and collect everything in that game because most of the rewards are cosmetic. In Daemon X Machina, I'm collecting better parts that will improve the performance of my mech for future competitive play or current cooperative play.
