Daily reminder that Osea did nothing wrong and that the is princess a shill.
>>17107416Oh shit I know it's almost January but I didn't realize we were this close. In the meantime, Namco has been releasing these Aircraft Focus videos which just show off common aircraft but they've been feeding my hype as of late. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vwJq87CnG-A&index=5&t=0s&list=PLB80A91EF510A979Fhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QABo1eP3lhs&list=PLB80A91EF510A979F&index=2https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vmKKa9YucZ4&index=6&list=PLB80A91EF510A979FPretty hyped for pulse lasers on the MiG-31 personally.
>>17108077I hope the new superplane has some Macross-tier missile spam SPW, like the Nosferatu's ADMM.
>>17107433Talk shit get hit
>Aces at War is no longer in stock
Are the AC games connected?
>>17108141Cross your fingers that they restock.>>17108144Yes, but only in setting.Each game can be played on its own.
>>17108077>Gripen>No Viggen still https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dVEOsl4KII
>>17108144With expection of AC3 and ACAH and a few others they are set in the same universe
>>17108152Project WIngman has a Viggen
>>17108157AC3 is canon, buddy.
>>17108164It got retconned by bandai, my man.
>>17108179Their official website, and interviews with Kono and Shimimoto say otherwise
>>17108175>>17108179Oh shit.My bad.
>>17108179>It got retconned by bandai, my man.That must be why we already know that there's going to be an AC3 character in 7 according to Kono, right?
Seeing as this is an Ace Combat thread, post your planefu.Mine is Viper-chan, she is very lightweight and kawaii~
>>17108175for many nips, ace combat 5 was the last numbered title.because no one bought xbawks.hahahahahaha
>>17108236Everyone knows the franchise has been going downhill since 6.
>>17108136FEE FI FO FUMI SMELL THE BLOOD OF ERUSEAN SCUM
>>171082387 looks like the best, unironically
>>17108245Fuck off IUN scum, you sold out to Osea
>plot of AC7 leaked in Japan>Erusea actually is the bad guys again>both the old man and the scientist are Belkans>the super plane is a new FALKEN for Trigger>final mission is Trigger versus a fleet of UAV FALKEN/Wyvern hybrids with the old man's data>Princess betrays Erusea with the scientist and becomes part of Trigger's team>Trigger's original crew were Erusean traitors that used Trigger as a patsy>the space elevator gets destroyed by the last remaining Stone Henge gun but the debris rains all over EruseaLMAO
>>17108593>FALKEN/Wyvern hybridsSo, the Morgan, but 90% less buddy.

best flanker is back
>>17106694Reminder Osea deserves to be nuked.
>>17108593>both the old man and the scientist are BelkansWhat a tweest
>>17107416yeah like I'm really gonna buy the day 1 basic edition without all the the DLC
all i want is co-op
>>17109634I'm still upset but they're adding DLC missions so I have hope for it. Multiplayer is pretty barebones at the moment.
>>17109630that's why you gotta preorder the deluxe edition
>>17109988>playing AC for the MP Because when I think AC, I sure do fondly remember all the great multiplayer experiences it has provided over the decades. /s
>>17110812What's the deal with the DLC?At first, I thought the end of that webm was a plane get bombed while in mid-air.
>>17110860iirc, there are three plane DLC packs, and some yet to be announced DLC missions, probably a mini campaign like OPeration Katina.https://twitter.com/bk2128/status/1078777769159323648
I dread that my dumb old pc won't be able to run it well.
>>17110913get a $150 1060 from a miner.
Will I be able to put Idolmaster girls on the side of my planes?
>>17111381Almost guaranteed, although I hope they update the roster to include some of the newer characters.
When the hell are Project Aces going to make a Macross game?
>>17111407When HG finally gives up their stranglehold on the IP in the west. Two more years to go!
>>17111407Why would they bother with Macross? Not only is Aces all gundamfags, but they're Bamco on top of that.
>>17111412Kawamori designed one of the planes in ass horizon.

>>17111407When the hell are Project Aces going to make an Area 88 game?
Anyone know what the differences are between the editions? I'm confused.
>>17115265Standard = just the gameDeluxe = Season pass, 8 emblems, ingame music player, F-104C -Avril-Strangereal = Steelbook, Aces at War artbook, diecast Arsenal Bird (only for Europeans)Aces at War = Strangereal edition for North Americans (no diecast model)All preorders on PS4 get AC5, all preorders on xbone get AC6, all preorders in general get 3 aircraft skins (Yellow 13 Flanker, Razgriz F-14, Pixy Eagle) and the F-4E.
>>17115835does preorder have to be digital?
>>17115875No, you still get the extras if you preorder from physical retailers.
>>17111585It'd make the names make more sense>Ace pilots like like AC Aces>Beings like physical avatars of the gods that can change the course of history from their presence
>>17111412>Not only is Aces all gundamfags, but they're Bamco on top of that.Doesn't Bamco publish the Macross games?Why even post if you're gonna straight up spew bullshit?
So close to release yet so many days.
>>17117573Reading posts from the /aceg/ diaspora is like reading youtube comments.
>>17118891Shut the fuck up quizno, go e-beg for more guro porn of puchis you freak.
>>17118893u wot m8?
>>17106694She's the final boss for sure.I hope the princess survives.
>>17108141So like all of Bamco's special editions across all regions sold out then?Why the fuck didn't they do an NA Special Edition sooner?
>>17118902Bamco NA incompetenceNorth American AC fans had to beg Kono on twitter to get a special edition made for North America, despite literally every other region (EU, JP, SEA) getting one.
>>17110913Just buy AMD.
>>17118908Only time they had Macross skins, it was a special DLC only for japanese players.
>>17111382>>17111381Why do the games have iM@S skins when none of the main iM@S games have English releases?
>>17118916It just seems really dumb of Bandai.
>>17118921You're advertising a series that has no media available for purchase in the market you're selling the Ace Combat game, aside from the one PSP rhythm game.
>>17118924people still bought the idolm@ster skins in the west because "dude anime girls on airplanes so wacky xD" and because the western anime fan audience has a large overlap with the ace combat fanbase. that, and there's no added effort involved on the part of bamco.so why not? its not like it'll cost any extra to sell anime girl skins to westerners, and theres no licensing issues involved.
>>17118913>>17118920>>17118924>why sell a product you've already made and which costs you literally nothing to distributeSkins are not advertising. They're a product in themselves. Regardless of the thing they are based on not being available to western audiences there's no reason not to make those skins available.There's still sales potential and there's no cost or risk associated with it. It is the definition of a no-brainer business decision.
>pre-ordered on PS4>going to get a digital copy of a game I already ownT-thanks BamcoAC6 release on literally anything but the Xbox when?
>>17118951Not to mention that anime and figures are available in the west.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-z4rt3TRGA&t=527sOne step closer to truly flawless PS2 emulation.
>>17120257Never ever, same with AC trilogy on anything but a Playstation.
>>17120257It feels like a fucking no-brainer, doesn't it, to port AC6 to Windows? Why don't they do it and make some quick money?
>>17123583Porting a console game to PC, especially an XBOX 360 exclusive is probably more trouble than its worth for Bamco, lazy bastards
>>17122524Is it running on hardware?
>>17123583Well, anon, the Xbox 360 is not an x86 Windows machine, but rather a PowerPC-based device running a custom operating system. 6 was highly likely coded specifically with the 360 hardware in mind, considering it was a 360 exclusive. Even to this day, the typical design of a videogame console is very specialized around tasks that make sense for videogames and multimedia apps (yes even when your game runs at 30 fps because the devs are being real greedy with what they want to do, they're targeting hardware that is designed to solve the problem "run videogames" a bit more purposefully than whatever device you're posting on right now), as opposed to the general purpose nature of a personal computer which is good for a far wider range of tasks but only does any one of them as well as its hardware can run through however the task was coded. This means that design choices that made sense when the game ran on a 360 may end up shitting the bed on another platform.It's not as simple as opening up Visual Studio, changing a few settings, and punching "clean and build project."
>>17108184Don’t ever step to me with your retarded bullshit again bitchboi
Never played Ace Combat. Should I buy this one?
>>17126395Do you like jet fighters?
>>17126395If you don't mind being jerked around by oldfags deeply entrenched in lore... sure, why not?But if you have a working PS2 (no fuck you the emulation isn't satisfactory by a long shot) you should play through the PS1 and PS2 games or else you'll have a bit over 2 decades of fanservice flying angels above you. Make no mistake, 7 is an anniversary celebration game and makes every effort to remind you that it's been 25 years of AC.
>>17126395You have plenty of time to at least play the PS2 trilogy and see what you've been missing out on before the 18th anon
>>17126418Wait no it's 20 years. Ah fuck now I've delegitimized myself.
>>17126422You were closer the first time, 24 years counting Air Combat for PS1 as the first AC game. 26 counting arcade Air Combat but that doesn't really have anything to do with the series, they just lifted the name for AC1's localization.
>>17126418To be honest, he doesn't really NEED to play the older games. Each AC stands on its own in terms of story, 7 isn't an exception.
>>17126433He doesn't NEED to, but he should. Because they're awesome games.
>>17126428Air is totally part of the franchise, if you ask me.Without it we wouldn't have Air Combat 22, which between it and Ace Combat 2 essentially codify everything that makes the franchise the goofball anime nonsense we know and love. Not to mention it's the progenitor to often overlooked offshot Mach Storm, which itself has a spiritual successor in one of those Star Wars battle pod arcade games.
>>17126418>>17126420>>17126436Time to get my old ps2 then
>>17108593I only just recently started following the AC threads but played AC6 a long ass time ago, and I've noticed something. Why the fuck do the Belkans have a hand in almost literally everything?
>>17127004Mostly memes riffing on AC5's plot being what it is.Except for when it's Belkaball, then it's memes riffing on ACZ's plot.
>>17112761Aardvark is very cute
>>17108152When you have a superior Gripen, you don't need (nor would you ever want) an inferior Viggen.

>>17128951That's what the season pass covers, anyway. If there's more later, it will be under a second pass.

>tfw no F-15 ActiveFeels bad.
Has the core gameplay really evolved at all since 3?
https://youtu.be/UtjO-rUIahM/m/age squadron when?
>>17139521No, but why would you want it to?
ERUSEA DID NOTHING WRONG
>>17139521It hasn't changed much since 2 or you could even make a case for 1. That's not really a bad thing, blowing up planes is always a fun time.
>>17139521The only thing that's really changed is lockon distance, tighter controls, and better flight models.
>>17140077Don't forget physically rendered clouds and actual weather effects like icing, wind shear, turbulence and lightning strikes.
>>17141115We don't know if "weather conditions matter" is going to stick as a franchise feature or not, at least to the capacity that 7 seems to be going for.
>tfw no multiple paths with in-mission time-limited choices that influence the overall outcome of the storywhy should I even bother with this franchise anymore...
>>17141222Zero.Granted, your choices amount to "how many yellow neutralized targets should I kill this mission?" but it fits the general shape of what you want. It's a decision made in-mission, it's time-limited, and it influences the overall outcome of the story.ALSO IT'S AN ACE COMBAT WHERE YOU SPEND THE MOST TIME COMBATTING ACES.
>>17141222ace combat 4 and 5 were perfectly fine without those
>>171412495 had time limited in-mission choices though, two of which actually serve as a poorly communicated mission branch choice, the two occurrences of the Face/Back of the Coin question.The coin flips also precede some of the most patience-testing bits of bullshit in the franchise if you don't realize you're choosing whether or not you want to experience Four Horsemen.
>>17141249and six too(the story wasn't THAT bad)but I feel like the franchise lost a lot of storytelling potential when they dropped the multiple story paths thing ace combat 3 had>>17141248it has a pacifist/warmonger thermometer?it's good enough to meI've been thinking of playing it for a while, but my pc can't emulate ps2 well enough so I'll wait until I get hold of a console
>>17141275zero has a soldier/knight/mercenary meter that fills up based on your playstyle.
>>17141275Zero's unique gimmick is literally a Warmonger Barometer that affects which of three permutations of the campaign you play through, and consequently what ace squadrons you run afoul of during the game.It, 3(JP) and X represent Ace Combat at its most replayable, actually.
>only one week awayWe're so close I can taste it.
>>17141318>tfw having to wait until Feb for it cause lolpcIt's going to be real hard not wanting to double dip.
>>17141321My heart goes out to all my PCbros who have to wait for this game.At least AssHorizon isn't the only AC game on Steam anymore.
>>17141326are PCbros getting the VR?I'm tempted to build a PC solely to play this on VR since I'm not buying another P$4 for this
>>17141346We don't know. It's being touted as exclusive to the PS4 version, but whether it's timed, or actual exclusivity, we don't know.
>>17141346PS4 VR is a timed one year exclusive, but I have no idea if bamco will develop a PC version of the VR campaign.
>>17141346I'm getting this on PS4 and I'm seriously tempted to pick up a used PSVR for $200 for this, RE7 and Tetris Effect even though I know it's going to be obsolete within a few years.
>>17141321That's what you get for being a portbegging mustard, though. At least you get the game, though.I have to live with the knowledge Namco is too incompetent to downscale a UE4 game to Switch, even the weather solution they're using targets the Switch for fuck's sake.>but why would you want to play it o-Because fuck you, if you're going to complain about the privilege of playing a formerly Sony console exclusive franchise on a platform that Japanese developers have only recently begun to acknowledge and still manage to fuck up development on from time to time, then I'm going to get bitchy about my preferred platform, underpowered as it may be relative to the competition, not getting a game despite being supported by the underlying technologies that make 7 work.It better be a goddamn nonstop infinite climax of visual spectacle if I'm going to believe Kono's bullshit about the Switch not being able to handle the game, and if it's not my salt will be eternal.
>>17141368Do it for RE7 at minimum, I've heard it was tailor made for PSVR, and it's already a great game with its absence so I can only imagine it being all upside in VR.
>>17141376Anon, I have a PS4 to play it on, I chose PC over it. That's what double dipping means, buying the same thing on two systems. Calm down.
>>17141387He's a seething switchlet don't expect logic from him.
>>17141394Is this the part where we devolve into calling people sonyggers?
>>17141376maybe you shouldn't have bought another underpowered gimmick console from nintendies then
>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ub8rtWiHNhsKeiki Kobayashi doing another banger of a soundtrack, it seems.
RIP the Princess. >>17141376Do you really expect BAMCO to do a decent job porting AC7 to PC when they couldn't do it for Dark Souls? Like, seriously? I'm sure they'd fuck up the Switch port too.
>>17141326I liked the Gunship bits, and it still looks prettier than all other Ace Combat games.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIoecLM5QSQAnyone watch this yet? Looks like someone watched some Arpeggio and decided to apply it to fighter jets.
>>17141527As to be expected
>>17141318I can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh lord.
>>17141760This can't be a good show
ONE MORE WEEKposting god tier Ace Combat musichttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jpc7_TtRpU8&
>>17144220That's mega awesome and all but you really have to wonder how exactly that got that thing airborne at all. Did they build the thing in space and fly it down?
>>17144232Its not that big, it looks way smaller than the Agaion, and it isn't built around being a carrier for manned fighter jets either. Eyeballing here, looks around the same wingspan as the Virgin Galactic Stratolauncher. I think it just takes off from land.
>>17144220why are fictional weapon advertisement so good?
>>17141275Once you create a multi-branching story path you actually lose storytelling potential in favor of world building potential. You would need multiple teams working on making full length campaigns that compliment each other to even make it worthwhile, but instead we usually get multiple "paths" that are just minor changes of the same central scenario or a bunch of super short scenarios and a bunch of padded, reused content filller to artificially extend each path.Plus Ace Combat 3 is a pretty bad example because nothing even happens in 3. They're all just potential sequences that could happen once the AI is unleashed on the world.
>>17144232According to a page in the Aces at War book, there is a picture of it being launched from a mass driver similar to the one in AC5, which explains the underside section piece that resembles the mass driver cargo that docks with the Arkbird
>>17144232They might as well have built it from space since they have the elevator
>>17146384how would they get it into the atmosphere though, the design doesn't look like it could survive, since it isn't a lifting body like the arkbird, and its a prop aircraft to boot.
>>17144220Howard Hughes would like that one.
>>17115835what's the in game music player? you can listen to the soundtrack in its own menu/player in game?
>>17141760There's no harem and thus I have 0 interest in it. If it's just cute girls fighting then what's the point when it's going to be full of cheap CGI animation and not even have a decent budget?
>>17106694>HD EyebrowsWell this is going to age well /s
>>17136134Owns, not rules. Macross Zero, not Macross Plus.Do people not remember the vintage stuff?
PC bros, what flight sticks are you using? I've been looking around for one but I dont know what is good
>>17151503Defender Cobra M5, got it with a WT promo code.Before that I used a Thrustmaster Top Gun-something
>>17151503Well first off, a flight stick is going to be overkill. You'll end up with more functions than Ace Combat actually uses, don't throw money at a HOTAS solution unless you want to dabble in flight sims on the side.Second off, anything more complex than a Saitek X52 (the preceding X45 was essentially cloned for that one Hori stick that came out for AC6, for reference) is supreme overkill; the Thrustmaster you posted is something you get when you're deep into DCS A-10 and represents the aforementioned problem of paying for things that Ace Combat doesn't care for.
>>17151503>>17151644Yeah, for Ace Combat? Don't bother. Likely it won't be supported and anyway it's not designed to be used with one.If you plan on getting into other flight sims then Thrustmaster T. Flight > T16000M > Logitech X52 > X56 or CH Products > Thrustmaster Warthog > Virpil, VKB. Depending on your budget.
Anyone else get this?
>>17151833To be fair, there's some licensed Hori sticks coming out for the console releases, which is the most recent in a bit of a recurring tradition of doing flight stick controllers for Ace Combat games.But as you can see in >>17152038, that level of complexity is pretty much entry level basic flight stick.Random trivia:The AC7 FLIGHTSTICK is the 5th (or maybe it's the 3rd if you go by major design changes?) generation of Hori Flight Stick accessory, at least from what I've gathered. AC04 had the Flight Stick 1, which was a fused together stick and throttle cheap looking thing. Flight Stick 2 was released with AC5 and was shell-wise a clone of the Saitek X45. AC6 had the Ace Edge, also outwardly an X45 clone but in that unmistakable Xbox 360 white and green scheme. Around the time of Assault Horizon, Hori did the totally-flew-under-the-radar Flight Stick 3 and Flight Stick EX2 for PS3 and 360 respectively, and the design aesthetics of that generation are preserved here in the PS4 and XB1 AC7 FLIGHTSTICK.
Is this an anime fighting game?
>>17152982This trailer made me nut. Bandai sure knows how to tease us with these trailers and plane highlights over the past few weeks.
>>17147137that's not how a space elevator works
>>17153620talking about the arsenal bird, bud
https://youtu.be/HnU9v1IE1nwThis trailer needs Thunderbolt drums.
>>17152038nope not worth 200 bucks got the thrustmaster on sale for 35
>F-22 has been the superfighter since AC4>Nearly 2 decades later, F-22 is still the superfighterI get it, wars are bad. But imagine how much we could advance if we had a war to really kickstart the arms industry again.Look at the difference between fighter planes in 1939 then fighters in 1945. F-22 has been around much longer than that and its still on top. For too long, I say.
>>17154483that's why AC has all these fictional planes, because the military aviation industry IRL just doesn't pump out enough new designs.
>>17108187>>17108175>>17108183>>17108179If AC3 is canon, that means that Mobius 1 exists in the same universe as Burning Force, Dig Dug and Galaga. What a time to be alive.
So is that Ace Combat 5 that comes with PS4 preorder another PS2 emulation? Is it a new port? Will it eventually be availible seperately?
>>17155377>Bandai Namco has since clarified that it will not be a remaster, but instead an emulated port of the PlayStation 2 original, running natively on the PlayStation 4 at higher resolutions.https://www.dualshockers.com/ace-combat-7-ps4-preorder-bonus-not-remaster/
>>17154483>The YF-22 first flew in 1990
So is anyone else being drowned in advertisements for 7 on Youtube, or is that just Google's weird algorithms remembering all the times I blasted Mayhem on loop years ago?
>>17154483A new war really wouldn't advance much for fighter jets beyond autonomous AI drone fighters and stealth systems without an explosion in new energy and propulsion systems.You're forgetting that much of the early advancements in fighter planes, and fighter jets, was the fact that everything was brand new shit.
>>17155377I read somewhere that it would come out seperately the same day as AC7.
>>17153504>realistic sortieslol. yes it's an anime fighter. you hyped?
>>17152038>>17152711I stand corrected. If it's supported, a relatively cheap stick like the T.Flight is cool then.
>>17157208>somewhat dynamic soundtrackFucking nice
So, does anyone know when the preload is supposed to start?
How do you guys think keyboard + mouse controls will be? I played Ace Combat 1 and 2 on keyboard pretty easily, but controls probably got more complicated in later games so i fear it will be shit.
>>17157308>keyboard + mouseWoofJust go buy yourself a 15 dollar usb controller from walmart, my dude
>>17157308don't even bother, AC is designed around a gamepad.it'll just feel like shit.
This video title made me chuckle.
>>17157308Do you not have a 360 or Xbone controller my dude
>>17157331Well, no. I don't really need it, i grew up playing a lot of Devil May Cry 3 on keyboard, after that i never felt discomfort in any game i played after. But Ace Combat kinda looks like the game that feel miserable on k+m, so i asked. Perharps i will be skipping this one if you really think it will be miserable, dudes.
>>17157345just buy a gamepad, they're dirt cheap and AC is well worth it for the fun factor
>>17157345If you managed AC1 and 2 and Devil May Cry you are probably going to manage AC7 as well. Not the best way to play it but it's doable for sure, it's not that there are combos or shit like that.
Those later X days until release trailers they've been dropping are excellent hype material.
>>1715737324 hours until it drops in Japan.Better be on the lookout for spoilers, apparently some people in the Middle East got their hands on copies early and are streaming it.
>>17157385I've already been spoiler on one plot point that we'd all pretty much guessed already, but I'll be doing a media blackout on anything Ace Combat related until my copy gets here. Shame that I have to wait almost another week for it, but eh.
>>17157316But ACH was totally unplayable even with a gamepad.
>>17157385Genuine spoilersMihaly is Pixy
>>17157407and what does that have to do with AC7, the game we are talking about?
Any reasonable chance we'll see some Neucom fighters in AC7? I love AC3 so fucking much, and the addition of Pulse Lasers as a weapon gives me a glimmer of hope.
>>17157470don't think so, they're probably saving that up for the inevitable AC8
>>17157414Bamco have no idea how to do a PC port.
>>17157470Maybe as hideously expensive DLC for $7 per plane, this is Bamco we're talking about.
Belka did nothing wrong
>>17159445>no damage bonusI can't believe Namco found a way to make AA guns even more insidious than they already were.
here's to hoping the narrative interacts more with the sidekickI'm replaying AC6 and shamrock is an ass. I couldn't feel any empathy for the character.I'm hoping the story has your sidekick lost or defecting or separated from (you) somehow
>>17159445>DAT SOUNDTRACK...I want it so bad...
>>17159445Aaaaand with that I'm hiding this thread and turning on my spoiler filters until FridaySee you nuggets later
>>17159741Dont be a chicken its just a bomber interception
>>17159741I'm just gonna watch the first three missions to see what I'm in for at the start. Plus I have to wait until next week to play because of shipping.
>>17159758The most stock of Ace Combat mission types, the introductory bomber interception operation.
Would you date a girl who pledged "My country, right or wrong!"
>>17159856yes, patriotism like that turns me on
>>17157328Saw these too, the AC ones were funny.
>>17109459Superior color scheme
>>17159856Nah, I want to date a tanned and greasy mechanic tomboy
http://www.encycstra.net/8212018---reconstruction-usea.htmlI love the fact that PA does these neat in-universe magazine articles.
>>17110812>That Tiger MirageI just nutted.
>>17160683Wait I'm a retard that's the F-104 isn't it? BRB gonna sudoku.
>>17160796What's up with 7's obsession with the Starfighter?I love the bird too, but I thought I was pretty unique with my adoration of it.
>>17161103It's trying to break new ground.
>>17160796Is that Wilford Brimley?
>>17161103>I thought I was pretty unique with my adoration of itThen you are utterly retarded.
>>17161360no need to be rude today, buddy.only 12 hours left.
>>17161146I APPLAUD IT FOR BEING DIFFERENT
>>17154483Here's something new from Europe.You'll have to wait until 2040 to see it though.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EbmVvmyV1SU
>>17155044Fuck, Project X Zone should have Air units just for a reason for Ace Combat to be in it
>>17118906ehy is it always like this? I feel america always gets the short end of the stick; star fox zero got a tshirt and some nifty stuff for the preorder in europe.
>>17161815>mfw I'll be playing it in 7 hours
>>17161845>No VR for the Mobius mission(s?).
Truth be told, I don't think this bingo really captures the full scope of bullshit that this franchise has dabbled in.Like how Nordennavic may or may not operate a clandestine spook squadron that runs interference on behalf of the country so it can claim to be a neutral party and not get dragged into the current shitstorm of the week, depending on how apocryphal Ace Combat Northern Wings is as a spinoff game.
>console serfs got access to the game earlier than the PC lordsThat's unfair!
>>17161489>New>it's just an F-22 Raptor
>>17161103It's narrative-based. The F-104 Starfighter was designed to push the very limits of what the technology could accomplish at the time for a specific purpose. That's the same as Mihaly's drone fighter.
>>17159856>>17160503I'll take the orphaned lolis for $200, Alex.
>>17159271So is Belka supposed to be Strangereal Germany or Yugoslavia?
>>17161989>PCuck complaining about being treated by Japdevs like the second class citizens that they are Enjoy your sloppy seconds you filthy slut.
>>17161998Can't beat a winning formula>>17162004Its also a theme of "old" meeting "new".You can see it with how an old man is piloting the latest fighter equipped with an AI pod while a girl in her late teen/early twenties flies an ancient fighter
>>17162010>a winning formulaThen why did they stop making them?
>>17162010Is Mihaly actually her dad?
>>17162020because the commies collapsed and whatsisname decided to cut short the orders because DUDE PEACE DIVIDEND END OF HISTORY LMAO aka pulled a Harling >>17162022her dad died
>>17162022Because it's an overkill to bomb Toyota Hilux.
So are there any playable super fighters in the base game or are they gonna be relegated to DLC?
>>17162292There's a brand new superplane and the X-02 in the base game
>>17162311Yata! I was worried that the new ADF was gonna wind up being drone only.
>>17150164>HD EyeHigh Definition eyebrows. Its what they call those. That's legitimately what they call it when they apply makeup in the gaps between eyebrow hair to look thick like that.
>>17162331Mass Effect did this 12 years ago, why is this considered new or retro?
I HAAAVE SO FAAAAAAR TO GO
Who playin' it out now
>>17108496>weapon bays openl-lewd
Any Chink planes in AC7?It'd be interesting to see a J-20, J-10, FC-31, or JF-17 alongside the Russian mainstays
>>17161815https://www.youtube.com/user/Zaptroxix/videoscan't wait for muh flac 24butt 192kHz
>mfw mission 12 is called Stonehenge Defensive
>>17162880what a tweest
>build scrap plane>forget to put IFF on scrap plane>get shot down by Osean fighters chasing a hostile drone>hurr fuck Osea, burn OseaWhy did they shove in this dumb broad? Game's awesome, but Avril a shit.
>>17162942That's not even why she doesn't like Osea.
>>17162880Oh you smarmy shitlords I see what you fucking did there.

fuck this shit.i can't wait until 1st feb like a pc pleb.watching all missions on jewtube.
>it's literally Belka's fault againare you fucking kidding me
>>17163021ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?
Look at this photograph. Every time I do it makes me laugh. How did our eyes get so red? And what the hell is on Triggers head?
So DigitalFoundry did an analysis of 7 and on a technical level apparently just about every release is in some fashion struggling or a tad off the mark in some aspect. Xb1 non-X models are pretty boned, sleep modes bork performance universally, there's some conspicuous as fuck draw distance fade in with the trees on the ground, not the most impressive resolutions...Seems that the PS4Pro might be the most favored version, but it's kinda underwhelming to see signs of "fuck it let's just rely on powerful hardware to crutch our way through our game design" prevail.Maybe it'll all be cleaned up in updates, but for fuck's sake UE4 is supposed to scale well, not just shit itself on anything that isn't the Pro or X.Still a solid return to form otherwise.
>>17163090did john sperg out on the music?
>>17163181It's definitely the good stuff, if that's what you're asking.

JPEG DOG.LITERALLY A JPEG DOG.
>>17163260One of the lesser-known Metal Gear Solid bosses.
>>17162760Not that I know of. Too bad.
So where the heck do I get my AC5 code?
>still stuck to one special weaponJesus fucking christ HAWX fixed this almost a decade ago
>>17162760They're literally all copies of Western designs. And they're all military property so of course they're not going to let Japs license them.
I wonder what's gonna happen next
>>17164415As someone with only a cursory knowledge of Ace Combat, is the kei nagase that is seen throughout the games supposed to be the same person? Are they part of the same family? or are they just coincidences?
>>17164625>or are they just coincidences?Probably this. Also we know that Kei from AC2 is a sister of Reiko Nagase from Ridge Racer
why didn't they just chop the power cable?
ac7 story is kinda meh.
>>17164625Hard to say, but if you try resolving each occurence of Nagase in the Strangereal saga to the fewest plausible number of appearances, I'd say there's 3 of them maybe?
>>17164625 this is the same one as 5. because of the little portrait when she speaks. it is possible that there's one that looks really similar, but most people seem to think it's the same as 5
