Twins will show up and shoot Nagase as she's coming down the elevator riling up Osea again. Twins will be flying Free Erusea colors, but actually be Belkans working for a corporation.
Then we'll go back north into the ice seas to fight free Erusea, but we're too late and they blow up the space elevator.
Then we'll find out that the Raven plans got out to the super weapon submarine and it launches a bunch of Ravens that fly around the twins in their fancy ass brand new Nosferatu customs with COFFIN systems using the Ravens as UAV wingmen.

Just watched a vid on the patch changes, they all sound like excellent changes to me, happy it happened. My only complaint, is I wish we were getting older planes, rather then more AC3 super jets. Personally, I want jets that I know and have distinct trade offs, rather then super jet speed running machines. Drakens, Tornados, F-15 Active etc. There is a disturbing lack of experimental fighters in this game!

I'd want an older 60's - 70's era AC because I love the plane designs from that time. There are plenty of crazy prototypes from that era that would make good one off ace customs, I'll leave it up to project aces to figure out how to work it into a story though.

I like those early cold war designs too, but I don't think a WW2 type game would fit with AC's gameplay formula.

It definitely wouldn't work for guns only combat but project aces has worked on sky crawlers which has that old school air combat feel. If they did a WW2 strangereal I wouldn't be surprised to see them release it under another name to avoid confusion.

Another case of jap devs fucking up on PC.
Instead of actually dealing with the issue of having the unreleased DLC planes in the game files, they just replaced the models with the F-16C.

Apparently, there are already people who've gotten the Falken and Morgan back too.
I mean, considering this is the first time PA has actually had a hand in developing for PC, and considering their small size, I'm not too surprised, and at least the fuck up isn't gamebreaking.

am I wrong for thinking a real ace takes on higher tier planes with the a-10,f-14,mirage2000,mig29, and su30m2? I've had a few great 1v1s ad they even chose equal planes but a certain group of guys claim that F22s and X0-2s are balanced and use nothing but, even in 1v1s against anything, i need to get an /m/ team together to stop the menace, although two of them use mice to get pinpoint EML shots which I'm pretty sure is semi cheating, and im on console.

>>17517993
A really skilled pilot will beat another pilot that's using a clearly superior machine. However, as the skill gap closes, there's only so much the more skilled pilot in the inferior machine can do.
If you can stomp F-22s in an A-10, do so, but just remember that if you lose, you voluntarily used a weaker aircraft.

They're not talking about the actual release date, but rather when AC8 is set.
I wouldn't be surprised if AC8 releases in a quicker time frame than 7 though, now that they've got a bunch of assets, more experience and a decent workflow pipeline established with UE4.
>>
>>17531452
It would be great if AC8 came sooner rather than later, but we're just about to switch console generations.
So either we get something that's a nice swansong for current gen, or we see something with radically higher specs for next gen (and therefore warrants more dev time).

Well, they'll probably stick with UE4 for the next game, and I'm not sure how much further that engine can be pushed in terms of visual fidelity.
AC7 looks pretty good and runs pretty good already, although I guess the textures (still a bit too blurry for my liking, although they are hamstrung by the need to maintain a high framerate on the ol' PS4) and ground detail can be better.

An airplane modelling magazine interviewed Shoji Kawamori after he played AC7's VR mode to get his thoughts on the experience. They also interview Masato Kanno, art director for 7, and the lead mechanical artist Masanori Ninomiya. Pretty neat read.

This guy could improve if he wasn't so busy shitting out dozens of low-effort requests. The YF-29 theme was a good idea, but for fuck's sake he didn't even take 30 seconds to lineup the paint & emblems with the shape of the X-02's body.

Heya, gents, I've been playing a couple of the ace games on the PSP and I've got an interest in the series. What's a good (and fun) game to start getting into this series?

Great, now I want a Macross series that's kinda like Ace Combat now...or vice versa.

>>17546826
It's a real gem, and not in the usual 'pretty good for a handheld game'; it holds it's own even when compared against the PS2 trilogy.
>>
>>17547664
Generally speaking, the B Team at Access Games has a decent track record for experimental ideas, though hardware performance at times leaves something to be desired.

I'm not saying AHL should look like RERevelaitons, but it would have been real nice for it to not shit itself in some of the more hectic missions.

Though, honestly X benefits greatly from the weird way the PSP's display updated, being the kind of blurry mess that blends choppy frames together incredibly well.
>>
>>17547706
X and JA look great on real hardware, but suffer a bit when emulating on a 1080p monitor/tv, mostly due to the very small textures. Thankfully that can be mitigated with HD textures packs.

It's not even on eBay anymore. And a lot of people were angry at Scamco for only giving us the book for $100 here in the USA when other regions got actual collector's editions.
>>
>>17549008
I don't like Bandai Namco either but at least we got the game and a steelbook with the Aces at War book for the $100. It was shitty of BN for not even offering a collectors edition in the US until a few angry fans and eventually Kono got them to print a few extra copies. It was such a rush job that they didn't even have the pre order codes ready in time for release somehow.
>>
>>17550368
Yup, from what Kono said, they really didn't expect AC7 to generate as much hype as it eventually did.

How's multiplayer now? When I stopped playing it was nothing but QAAM, EML, and chink hackers.

If you're on PC, its pretty much dead.
/aceg/ usually organizes matches every Wednesday and Saturday though.
PS4 is still somewhat alive.
No clue about Xbox, I presume that's dead as well.
In terms of actual gameplay, PA buffed a couple weapons like the TLS, HPAA, and HCAA and nerfed QAAM (no more 360 degree lockon and infinite travel time) and EML (higher tier aircraft with level 2 armor equipped will require two shots to take down now) a bit.

Is there any difference between English and English (Japanese version) in the PS4 version of AC5 besides being called Booby instead of Kid?
>>
>>17555061
I did a run on both and Booby was the only difference I noticed, I'm glad someone was smart enough to change it to Kid.
>>
>>17555125
I think originally it was supposed to be a reference to Eric Hartmann's nickname, but then Bamco figured that having the player character be called Booby all the time would sound weird.
>>
>>17555129
According to wiki Bubi in German works out to be The Kid so they kept the reference and just translated it so it didn't sound too silly. I do recommend doing a Booby run though, it's pretty silly if you grew up with English AC5 and want to watch the cutscenes again.

Doubt they'll show off a mockup yet.
Seems a bit too early for anything definitive.
NGAD, NGF, Tempest, and the F-3 are all still in the planning phase.
Perhaps next year, in 2020.
There is a chance they could just do away with it and just upgrade the F-35 to a 6th gen standard

Its set around the same time/a little bit later of the latter half of the Lighthouse War, the main character is still Trigger, the antagonist is a warship captain who is "the most evil person in the series history", and there's a brother/sister special forces assassin team (the two edgy types from the teaser trailer).
There will be three missions of indeterminate length that supposedly ramp up the difficulty a ton over the average campaign mission.
That's pretty much all I know.
