I know the feeling. One drunken karaoke night resulted in me singing that song and started swearing into the mic. I'm like, "Bitches took out my sexy panties part!" Darn radio edit of that happy upbeat song!!
Hell yeah. Armored Core 3 is easily my favourite and my opinion of the peak of the console games. Great arena that had memorable opponents, great missions and really balanced learning curve, really balanced parts (I was recently playing and my tank ac had a lightest ac, and my light weight bipedal had the heaviest core, and that's the way they work best lol). I like the original the most after that. Huge long missions with giant explorable maps, so much fun.
