Only one week to go.Which platform will you be flying on?
Xbone cuz I have the Triple X and a flight stick
>>446424285Nice, I'll be getting it on Xbox as well. Never got a PS4 Pro, but I have an X and I want to play it in 4K. What flight stick do you have?
PS4 and PC, I don't wanna be spoiled so I'm playing it at launch
>>446424435The T.flight hotas one got it on sale after christmas for Leet:dangerous Not even sure if AC 7 supports it though
>>446424057Playstation for the bonus AC5, preordered on amazon, weekends gonna be comfy
>>446424057playstation as god intended.then I'll get it on pc
3-4 hours and mongs unironically are hyped for this shit
Is this gonna be a good starting point or do i need to play the other 50 Ace Combat games?
>>446424057Multiplayer pushed me to go with PC. Might by 2 copies tho.
>>446425626Dance with the angels cunt
>>446425808AC are mostly self-contained, this one is no different
>>446424057PS4. God I can't wait any longer
>>446425808No AC games are truly interconnected but it's worth playing at least the ps2 trilogy
PS4 for some sweet VR actionfeel bad for you xbox guys, hope you still enjoy it
PCReally anxious about the PC version. Vesperia released just yesterday and its already buggy as shit so I'm expecting the same here.
>>446426302This is an Unreal 4 game so it should be fine.
>>446426206Eh, it's just one mode. Playing the whole game in native 4K on a nice big television is a fair trade for me.
holy fuck nobody cares. stop shilling your 6 game sony cucks
>>446426438This is a jap game so it should be a trainwreck.
>>446425947Ranka lee is SHIT
>>446424057I honestly can't make up my mind. I'm impatient so I wanna grab the PS4 version but I also have a new rig and wanna see the game all pretty like.Think they'll be a quick crack maybe? So I can buy the PS4 version and pirate the PC. Or quit being a homo and wait for the PC release? I'm having the same issue with REmake 2
>>446426996Just avoid /v/ for 2 weeks and wait for PC. There's nothing here worth checking in for daily anyhow.
>ISEV>Fighting with intelligencehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zwDLfywrX44
>>446424057PC.>one weekNot for me I guess.
>>446427098Should I get Resident Evil 2 on PC as well? I do hate my chair and much rather play these things in bed because I'm a lazy turd. I'll hold out for AC7 on PC though. But PS4 for RE2, gotta make sure that thing doesn't start to gather dust.
>>446424057Never played an AC before, would this be a good one to start with?
>>446424057>flight sims>doll-face waifu thrown in anywayWhy can't Japan stay away from this?
So where does this 2-4 hours thing come from?
>>446427583No. I'm not an AC purist by any means but you should really play the PS2 three my man. You won't regret it, I just hope you have the time to do so.
>>446427763I think that's just VR missions
>>446427734None of you fuckers better not take this bait.
>>446427583It probably won’t be a big deal to start with 7, but you should at least try and play 4 and 5 before this one. I hear those two emulate pretty well now0 is also a great game and you should play it but it seems like it’ll maybe be less relevant plot-wise
>>446427763People mad that a Smash Bros / e-celeb thread died for this
>>446427734>sony babies>playing gamespick one. if it doesnt have waifus they dont buy itsimple as
>>446427583I don't see why not, the stories aren't really connected. That said, the rest are are really fun and worth playing if you can.
>>446424057PS4 until it crashed and burned due to SNOY being maximum anal. Was torn between that and PC but now it's not a problem anymore.

>>446430009Fucking how?and yes.
>>446427929Not him, but I don't have the means. Shitty computer and no PlayStation 2 (or 3). This will be my first Ace Combat too. I'm getting it on Xbox One. Would have gone for PS4 but I want the rumble triggers.
>>446429995I had it preordered on Amazon way back in October and had Sony not did what they did I would have went with it. I'm still keeping my PS4 Pro, I'm just not buying anything new on it or even another Sony console.
I wanna pick it up but I know zero about the lore, anyone to give me a quick rundown?
Still waiting for an Ace Combat for the Switch
>>446430251You preordered? 6 is also very solid albeit with a couple shortcomings.>>446430441Different world, asteroid was gonna fuck it up hard so everyone built hueg superweapons to intercept the pieces. asteroid is gone so the weapons get to aim at everyone else instead nowadays.Also there are more planes than pilots. And Belka did everything wrong.
>>446430205Easy to miss a series that barely sells enough to keep making new ones.
>>446430995I did preorder. I wish we got 5 since I've heard better about it. But I honestly don't know that it'll even be good to go back and play 6 after experiencing the improvements of 7.
>>446430995nice, one quick thing, who are the bad / good guys in that image. think about the oldschool definition of west = good, east = bad
>yfw the reason you'll need to destroy the space elevator is because It is transporting a V2 into orbit to drop down on Osea
>>446430198AC 7 has a lot to do with 4 since Usea gets the sptolight again. Hell you even see Stonehenge in one the trailers. I'd say this is a no brainer.
>>446424057Someone talk me out of buying a PS4 for this.
>>4464312235 is very divisive so meh.Try to emulate X, PSP emulation is pretty toaster friendly, right?>>446431231Eh...There are some B*lkan factions usually stirring shit up but all sides are both kinda fucked up and righteous.The Yukes are basically Strangereal USSR but seem comfy until provoked again, by B*lkans in 5
>>446431276>buying a PS4 for 4 hours of gameplay
>>446424562>>446425129Hello fellow double dippers.>>446431276If you don't have a ps4 just get it for what you already have.
>>446431276Sony is enforcing double-standard censorship across the PlayStation platform.
>>446431747does the player usually play for one faction in these games or are there different factions represented in different games, i.e. you play as a pilot for yuktobania one game, next game you fly for osea?
>>446431231>>446431747Hang on, forgot about Leasath, those are cartoonishly evil.>>446431945Without much spoilers, no.We've fought against Erusea in 4 the yukes in 5, Belka in 0, the estovies in 6 and Leasath in X.1 and 2 are USEA internal conflicts and 3 is cyberpunk memes going around.
>>446431268Yeah. I just needed the slightest nudge honestly. I'm getting it launch day now. Thanks.
>>446432240thanks breh, I'll look forward to this. Only ever played the Ace Combat 3 demo back in the day on a PSX demo disc but it's been on my mind ever since, finally gotta get into these games
>>446432649Welcome aboard nugget. Enjoy the stay.
>top sellers on steamI didn't know Ace Combat had this kind of pull.
>>446432240Leasath was just tricked into it by their cartoonishly evil general. They themselves are just normal
>>446433464We come out of the woodwork for sequential entries
>>446433464>i didn't know kino had this kind of pullJokes aside if you combine all the cutscenes in AC you get a nice war movie.
I know that it's releasing on 18th, but do we have any idea when on 18th?
>>446424057xbox cuz i was dumb and never got a 360>>446425947
>>446433663They didn't show any remorse while firebombing and nervegassing civilians , things that even some belkans cant do.>>446434032wat
>>446424057Xbone and PC. Plan one was to get the PS4 version, but I refuse to buy PSVR for a short campaign, and AC5 is perfectly playable on emulators, so I decided to get the Xbone version for AC6 instead. Even if I already own it for the 360.
>>446434032Definitely sometime between the 17 and the 19th.
PS4, got the aces at war bundle for that artbook, first time I've ever gotten a collectors edition anything.
>>446424057Youtube cause fuck (((Namco)))
PS4 because I'm still on a 2GB 770. I think the length meme in this thread is just a meme. /ace/g has nothing about the length anywhere. AC is usually like 8 hours long for one playhrough maybe 6 or 7
>>446435250 If I didn't have GCU I'd probably have gotten it. Kono seems like the only reason that is even an edition outside Japan. He seemed upset on TWitter about how they were handling the whole CE thing before
>tfw PC just barely meets the required specs>gonna be playing AC in potato modeat least I'll get to enjoy the music and cutscenes...!
New trailer literally just uploaded https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YQW_Fye4CWU
>>446437161Pretty sure it's confirmed to be like 20-21 missions long of similar or larger scale to AC6, so about 10-12 hours I'd guess.
>>446430995does Ace Combat 7 mention anything about the Aurelian War?
>>446438402It's been a while since I played 6, I mostly remember my save times for the PS2 games. I really hope I can pop my disc into my Xbox One and get a back compat copy and it's not just locked to pre-orders for that.
>>446438402Ps4 trophy list was announced it showed trophy for mission 20 just before the trophy for completing the game but AC games are very replayable http://www.powerpyx.com/ace-combat-7-trophy-list-revealed/
>>446438497There's nothing on the trailers pointing at that, and it makes me extremely angry.
>>446438868i did see the Southern Cross emblem in the deluxe edition...
>>446425626Ace Combat 6 was, still got that replayability for days
>>446439050That edition also has the mobius, razgriz, galm patches so it means absolutely nothing.
>>446425626Whats his name again?
>>446431945read up on the lorethere's a few youtube videos that explain the gist of the Strangereal world and what happened in the previous gamesBasically everyone fucks their neighbours up every few years and the games let you enjoy the large scale conflicts from the more "righteous" side of whoever is currently fucking each other up
>>446430549All you're getting is Sky Rogue
>>446424057I can't wait for PC. I'll play it on PS4. I fucking need it now.
>>446424057I only have a PS4, so it shall be the PS4. No preorder though, I'm too poor.
>>446424912>Playstation for the bonus AC5Same.Also pre-ordered the japanese collectors edition off jap amazon
AC5 appears to be running in a higher than native reso https://twitter.com/bk2128/status/1083351886709682177?s=19

>>446439053My exact face when I hear work needs people on Tuesday but I already wrote down unavailable.
>>446440213That's ordinary for PS2 emulation on the PS4. 2x resolution increase each way.
>>446438652It's not, they already said if you have the disc you can play but it won't be available to buy otherwise beyond the pre-order. Someone in a thread yesterday said it is playable now if you own it, but I haven't checked.
PS4 for the AC5 bonus and I prefer playing on the big screen.If online Coop missions get announced then I'll be double dipping

>yfw specialized UAV units have the names of ace pilots>The final hidden boss is a XFA-36A Game with the handle NEMO
>>446441917This is just like the Arkbird all over again. Or if the Arkbird and Gleipnir fucked and this was the result.
>>446431263Did they ever explain what the V2 was other than big bomb?Pixy was convinced it was going to fuck everyone up enough to reset the status quo.
>>446441917>That zoom out of the elevator height and AB rangeHow far up does the space elevator go?
>>446441917Where did this webm come from?
>>446442381It's connected to the moon.
>>446440861I just forced my broken xbox open and got the disc out. Put it in my One S and it isn't yet compatible.
Will they ever remake 3? It was so ambitious and still is impressive
>>446443238No.The Space Elevator's height is only about 1/4 the distance between the earth and moon.
why would a space elevator need two gigantic arsenal bird weapons
>>446444203They built it on Erusea's territory and Free Erusea was still a threat at the time of construction
>>446444203The setting has no concept of MAD so wars break out every few months.
>>446444131I would be extremely happy if that happened. So it won't.
>>446442381Its going to be at geostationary orbit, so ~36,000km, or three times the diameter of Strangereal. But that's just the station itself, it also needs a counter-weight beyond geostationary orbit to counter-act the force of gravity and actually hold all the mass up. That bit is going further, depending on how they want to play with mass of the counter-weight/distance from the center of the system.https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/2/20/Space_Elevator_Schematic.jpg
>>446444131>translation skips all of the flavor textI mean I'm glad the important stuff got translated but still
>>446439928I didn't see AC5 in the store, so is it only available as part of the pre-order?If so it's worth it in my book
>>446444131I would just be happy if they ported it to PS4 so I can play it since I don't have a PS1 and never did
>>446427583You can emulate 4,5,0 and X easily.
>>446444636I can't really blame them. I'd want to focus on the main story too
>>446444131If they remade it they'd spoil the atmosphere. But then the game needs a flight model overhaul anyway. Tough call.
Gonna be on PC. >gtx 1080 ti>tfw 3440 x 1440p MonitorBROS.... IF THIS GAME SUPPORTS ULTRAWIDE....!!!!! I don't think I will ever be able to go back to console ACE in the future. Just imaging the 21:9 view inside a F-16 causes me to drool.
>>446424057PCWill it run well on a 4670k and RX 470?
>>446446149If it's Project Aces doing it, how could they ruin the atmosphere? AC7 shows they've still got what it takes
>>446446648It won't. Nip games usually support one aspect ratio and you better pray that it doesn't assume your screen is the correct ratio and stretch the image to fit.
>>446444512Anything but LEO is retarded, why would you assume the one they have is the most ambitious and hardest to build?
>tfw godtier PC but still getting it on PS4 because can't waitI will get it on PC later for that 1440@165hz
>>446447101We'll have to see. Usually if it doesn't support it out the box someone force mods it into the game with a hex editor or other means. I hope it does support ultrawide out the box though. This game is perfect for it!
>>446446986It was nearly 20 years ago my dude. Even if they make an atmosphere, it won't be the same.
>>446447446Pretty much this. That first week hype train is worth it alone.I'll grab it on PC when it goes on sale later
>>446447250The same reason they have flying aircraft carriers, railgun networks, and GW-range chemical laser installations? It's cool. Besides, With almost every country having some form of mass-driver facility, it's not like they're lacking in means of launching payloads into orbit.
>>446447365Ah so it uses the same engine as Soul Calibur and Tekken which were both easily to force native 21:9 through the same method. Since this is also Bandi Namco I'm not confident that we can force native 21:9 here as well.
>>446424057>Thousands of anons died before playing Ace combat 7A thread of silence.

>>446424057I just checked Steam and it says 1st February. What the fuck, why can't PC have it on the 18th as well?I swear if this wasn't mainline Ace Combat I wouldn't have even considered buying anything from fucking Bamco
>haha burn osea to the ground>*muffled mobius 1 sounds in the distance*
>>446448169>12 years between 6 and 7Didn't even think of it like that god damn
>>446447763You're rightIt would be better
>>446448169Well, they got to play a few other Ace games. It's not like DMC series where they were forced to play the same games for 10+ years.
>>446447250And the fact they already confirmed its a 100,000 km long design, meant as the focal point of a network of microwave power transmission satellites at GSO. https://www.famitsu.com/news/201512/17095217.htmlhttps://www.4gamer.net/games/369/G036985/20180618080/Which is how the Arsenal Birds stay permanently airborne, and the reason for their microwave domes.
*ahem*FUCK BELKAFUCK BORDERS

>>446446691you'll be fine
>tfw no co-op mode so I could make an ebin squadron with the boys
What country is Erusea based on?
>>446448194I emailed bamco twice about it and never got a response. I think we may be out of luck.You should send them a message too and see what you get. maybe you'll have better luck than me.
>>446449838TDM is kinnda coop
>>446450156Western european countries with an Eastern European location
>>446450253Yeah, I doubt I would get a response, if I had a twitter maybe I could tweet at them and get a response that way.
Is the F4 going to be offered separately?

Will it be available through Steam?
>>446455126yes, two weeks after console release
Can I jump into this as my first AC game or do I need to know the context/stories of previous games?
>>446455396It might have some callbacks to 4 and 5, but the story will be mostly unrelated.
>>446424057PS4, ready to engage
>>446455396You can just play it, there's no grand plot in this series and every game is about a new war in a different time period anyway, all you have to know is not to trust anyone from that country called Belka
>>446424912>>446439928>preordered for ac5Mah fucking niggas
>>446455632I wouldn't trust those Sapin folk neither

>>446456492Oh they're just horrible people with their loud sapinish guitar music waking everybody up at 4 in morning. Ustio needs better border security.

>>446424057should i got it on PC or PS4?

Will Gracemeria and Estovokia factor into this one at all?
>>446457862Gracemeria is the name of the capital, silly. And no, it's very unlikely.
>>446458102So what happens in Sotoa and Verusa?Civil wars?
>>446458102Which one of these is supposed to basically be the US? Usea?
how good is the story in ace combat these dayshaven't seen anything since the first one in the 90s
>>446458583Osea I think
>>446458359Verusa had a war with Yuktobania in the 80s with a large air battle that devastated both sides' airforcesMaybe for a future game
>>446448169Why do you have to say shit like this?

>>446458359Not much because they're primarily referenced in maps. Even Nordennavic got a cellphone game where they did a bunch of covert operations.>>446458583Osea is the US analogue I'd say, Usea has a few different countries despite what the map suggests.
Post your main plane
>>446459865Well, if it's in the game. I'm guessing it's probably just SU-32 and up.
I remember these games very arcade and boring.

>>446460645yea thats the name!
>>446460637>the space elevator gets destroyed by the last remaining Stone Henge gun but the debris rains all over EruseaIf something like this happens, I want a mission where you start at a really high altitude and have to blow up the larger pieces of debris as they fall to minimize damage.
>>446460862So SOL from ace combat 5?
>>446460862<<Faster, and Higher, will you be the one to go there?>>
>>446460716>Su-37Not quite, that's this.>>446461016Yeah
>>446460727How does AC7 handle the plane unlocks? Do they just appear in the shop after you beat missions, or is there some new system to it again?
>>446460727Your wings are all wrong sovie
>>446460716slav planes are aesthetic as fuck
>>446461118I think it's like Ace combat infinity, so you research planes after another.Haven't looked too indeph. but I do believe it's like say you research the F-100, then you unlock the F-4 phantom and such.>>446461165K Raptorshiter. come back to me when you actually have some actual style :P

>>446459865you already did
where's my dating sim
Digital PS4 version is ridiculously expensive, like 35% more than a physical copy or the Steam version (80 Aussie dollarydoos). Whats the deal?
>>446461364Shit, really? I'm a freak, and always liked that system. That said, it was way too grindy, but hopefully they've improved on it for a single player entry.
>>446461441I'll think of you anon
>>446461274Yup. I wish the MiG-21 didn't suck so much, I love the way it looks.
redpill me on thisi recently got into il-2 after i got an oculus and I want a modern gameis this a sim or arcade game and is it in vr
>>446461573I disagree. Slav aircraft are aesthetic as fuck, slav tanks are meh. LEO 2 shits on them all day long. and jap Tanks.>>446461864I'm sure in SP it won't be anywhere near as grindy, MP I would expect the grind to be about the same without the fuel shit and all that. but it probally won't be by nation, I expect it to be split into categories. say Air superiority, Ground attack, bomber(assuming they have things like the B2/B1, and such in like assault horizon)Until I unlock the king of planes known as the SU-47 flanker, I'll probably main either an F-15, or an F-14. my side planfu's.
>>446461364>curviest, sexiest exhaust >thicc nose cone>concealed weapons How can sovishits compete?
>>446462164Same with the F-4, but that's obviously not Slav.
>>446461441I actually have a good PC, but I just can't fucking wait.
>>446461864Its a tree you go down, and from what we see, if you buy a plane, you unlock the next in the tree, and Kono himself said that one playthrough can net you one full branch of the tree, for planes at least, not sure about all the parts and weapons
I haven't watched any of the mission gameplay on youtube and there is a fuck ton of it on youtube for some reason. It's the most gameplay I've ever seen being shown before the game is even out. It's like Namco decided to do their own playthough or something.
>>4464621833 separate ps4 missions are vrAC games are much more arcadey than sim but not stupidly unrealistic
>>446462183Arcadey. The HUD and chatter and stuff are kind of realistic, but the controls are simple and you can carry an absurd number of missiles. There are also sci-fi aspects to the story.
>>446462183Arcade, but still "feels" semi-realistic (not as arcadey as afterburner or hawx)It has VR exclusive to the PSVR, but only for one year
>>446424057Ordered both PS4 and PC edition. Gonna blitz the campaign before spoilers get out and enjoy the VR missions but PC will be the definitive edition with better graphics and framerate . Even if OG PS4 is 30FPS and PS4 Pro is 60FPS it's probably not consistent, and I hear that PC gets to use higher textures?
>>446462284AC5/6 is a nice bonus, but the F-4 is the reason I pre-ordered.
>>446461893But the disc version still has VR?Guess I'll just get the steam version, cheaper with discounts, I can wait 2 weeks and don't mind being spoiled.
>>446431276 namco pc ports are pretty good usually post darksouls
Is there ever any reason to use the F-117 in any Ace Combat game? It looks cool, but it's complete garbage, there's no actual stealth in the games, and it usually doesn't even get good weapons.
>>446462452There's no guarantee that they'll port VR to PC to be honest. Some Sony time-limited exclusives like Skyrim were ported to PC but then there's RE7 which is still PS4 exclusive
>>446462261>needing to hide weapons,>not wanting to make the enemy fear your fucking QAAM spam.>weak nose doesn't even have a rod to ram other planes with to impale the enemy pilot.>boring ass delta wing design.Really Raptorshiters cannot compete.This is what peak performance looks like
>>446424057funny how nobody in these threads discusses the gameplay, only the storywhy is that, ACfags? is that because AC gameplay is so fucking basic there is literally nothing to talk about, hmm?
what's the most /fa/ plane?
Did they mentioned what's performance on ps4pro? Is there 60fps mode?
>that musichttps://youtu.be/EFxtY4giPk0?t=3m2sI'm sad the soundtrack isn't in any of the collectors editions.
>>446462924arcade games be like that
>>446444131Reminder that Dision did nothing wrong.
>>446462928Gonna have to give that one to the Wyvern.
I really wanted one of the Century fighters in an AC game. I still can't believe it made it in
>>446463118Shit looks like a flying dolphin
>>446462739Isn't it the go to for guns only runs?
>>446462259>I disagree. Slav aircraft are aesthetic as fuck, slav tanks are meh. LEO 2 shits on them all day long. and jap Tanks.I'm kinda biased towards Slavs as I love the BMP and the already Russian Federation BTR.But I think it has to do more with doctrine and the way they planned to use them, same deal with both jets and helicopters being able to have the engines easily removed and planed to being able to get their maintenance done by the crew.I do concede that LEOs and TYPEs and the like look like they can pack a punch compared to their Soviet counterparts, probably because the turret looks more "menacing"
>>446463090He did everything wrong, specially riding that fucking blimp, the electronic motherfucker.
>Want to play this whole series>All games are spread out on 50 defunct consoles, platforms and whatnot so trying to play 1-6 to prepare for 7 is a nightmarethanks game industry. Again, this is why PC is a superior platform in these regards. You can 99% of the time just fix it easily with few tweaks and get old games running easy peasy.
>>446424057Fuck off with this boring trash "game".Ace Combat should have died with the arcades.
>>446462739Ground attack missions, but otherwise no. Really, there rarely ever seems to be any reason not to just use the multirole aircraft all the time. That's my favorite plane too. My dad was a mechanic on those in the Air Force when I was growing up, I got to see them in person often and they even let me try the training simulators for it a few times when I was kid. My first introduction to flight sims was the real deal military equipment.
>tfw already played AC5 so bought it on PC for 47 clamsI mean you can get it for 50.99 now and save 9 bucks but it was like 12 during that December fuckfest.
>>446463314Even in ground-attack missions, I would think others would be better, like the A-10.
>>446463127For me its the morgan>dude we need a laser>uhh jusd eh fuckin bolt it to the top i dunno
>>446462924Its jets shooting jets and other things What more do you want?
>>446463437It's not like you need to play them to understand what's going on. And almost all of them can be emulated.
>>446463437The Holy Trinity can be emulated perfectly gameplaywise, only a few fixes needed with graphics and it got a major update with the last pcsx2 release this month.iirc the only one "held hostage" is 6 at least until we get a proper xbox emulator
>>446463437Yeah no shit PC is better, if you had half a brain then you'd emulate them
>REmake 2 comes out 25th>AC7 PC the 31st
do you guys know if the VR missions will be playable on PC, or are they PSVR exclusive?
Has there been any word on an emblem creator for multiplayer?If so I propose the ACfags of /v make our own to identify other anons
>>446462928The Shinden II
I hope the Arsenal Bird has some kind of defense againt plain old bombs. The other big planes in the franchise are a bit too easy to just FAEB down. Especially Hresvelgr, that was just hilarious.
>>446463930>Just emulate themPeople keep saying that atleast two of the games run fucking awful even with todays strong PC specs.
>>446463437Must suck needing to be spoonfed everything and unable to enjoy the masterpieces in life
>>4464641064 still apparently has some problems, but 5 and 0 work perfectly.
>>446463974I'm pretty sure it's just PSVR.
>>446463974They were "PS4 Exclusive" but recently got changed to "Exclusive to PS4 until 1/18/2020"
>>446464232Wanting to play all the games in the series is needing to be spoonfed? Pretty sure an "All cutscenes" video on YT is spoonfeeding.
>>446464080That's half the fun, though. I loved dropping FAEBs or rocket barrages on the Aigaion.
>>446462928The Platypus>that half-covered side-by-side cockpit>that massive dong
>>446462924>new storm systems that can interfere with avionics>clouds that can ice your airframe but protect you from radar, brings a new aspect of level design other than wide open skies>new air corridors and wind mechanics>new AI for human and drones alike>manual-post stall maneuvers>parts mechanic>tech tree>deeper customization>new energy management system>weightier flight model>VRnow what do you want to talk about
>VR missionswhat the fuck is this about? why would only some missions be VR instead of the whole game?
>>446444131Why isn't Chad Keith in that image?
>>446462924The gameplay is the best of any modern arcade flight shooter, but whats around the gameplay is why we all love it
what are the chances of falken being in the game and not dlc
>>446464430Don't they have a kitchen behind the cockpit?
>>446464332I suppose I can live with that. As long as it's an eventuality. I always liked playing in first-person mode in the older games but I couldn't get used to the looking around. I could even just use a controller or something, but having my head on a swivel would make flying in first person much more comfortable.
>>446463224they're called belugas thank you very much
>>446464708VR is a meme
>>446463437You can play 1, 2, 3, 04, 5, and Zero on a single PS2
>>446464708If you follow the VR mission news rumour has it that the VR aspect was supposed to be much more substantial, but they were having so much trouble that it was delaying the entire game hence the delay from 2018 to 2019. Although in interviews they said that the cutscenes really don't work in VR, they don't give the same feeling so it'd be a compromised experience if it's not built from scratch for VR
>>446464708Because you would have to downgrade and redesign every mission to be PSVR compatibleThe VR missions look like tutorial missions on a laptop compared to the rest of the game
>>446464332There was a another game where it was "PSVR exclusive until X", but then never actually ported to PC. I can't remember what it was though
>>446464430>DCS to release F-14 Module with a Weapon Systems Officer>It can be controlled by the IA or a Friend>This means "there is a chance" it may get a Su-34 ReleaseNothing would be able to beat it's comfyness https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0nuwLtnLlY
>>446464853VR is not a meme>>446464878will they make the whole game VR on PC?>>446464985a flight simcade in 2019 without VR is a compromised experience
>>446460862>>446461016>>446461063Please no. SOLG was an awful note to end the game on.
>>446465240The fact that you have to say "VR is not a meme" means it's a meme
>>446465240>will they make the whole game VR on PC?They will not.
>>446464740>The gameplay is the best of any modern arcade flight shooterThat doesn't mean anything.
>>446465240I heard the VR missions were PS4 exclusive.
>>446465240you would 100% be able to play it in VR on PC with 3rd party apps, maybe a week after releasehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1dy9gCOsCQo
>>446465127Yeah, in the end it just means it can't be done until X. Nothing confirms it will ever be done, but them releasing a Season Pass and after the fact that we only got 7 thanks to Infinity, I expect them to support the game for a few more years and selling the VR missions as DLC and/or in the Season Pass is probably not out of the question
>>446465378Everything you like is a meme
>>446465440yes it does, it means the gameplay is the best of any modern arcade flight shooter
>>446465252To be fair, Ace Combat is good at a lot of things but final bosses/encounters that are good are pretty rare.
>>446465440I'm including games like Hawx, Lethal Skies, anything with modern jets in it. And out of all of them, Ace Combat was and is the most refined. So you got in with the hook of gameplay that feels good on a dualshock. But the series keeps you reeled in for the unique missions and story
>>446463472You, not even worth it
>>446465317The Unsung War is a bad mission on it's own but an absolutely awful final mission.>wait for 2 fucking minutes before anything happens>simple dogfight in a featureless area>have to wait even longer doing nothing if you're good and kill them quickly>SOLG itself is a slow moving defenseless targetIt's shit.>>446465959Aces would have been a great place to end it.
>>446455503>>446444131This are nice, any version of 0 or 4?
>>446465719>>446465972It doesn't say anything about the series itself. I could get a couple third graders to write stories about a man with Cheerio limbs and call one "the best story about cereal challenged individuals." But it's still going to be terrible despite being "the best."
>>446467181It isn't you retard.
>>446429206Now this is what I call Art.
>>446467181Fix the spacing
>>446464754Don't know, but the new superplane looks a lot like it, so you'll at least have that.
>>446466449My headcanon is that the real SOLG was the black one in Infinity, the one in 5 was a fake version that got declassified so the public didn't panic because of a laser armed, universal range murder machine.
>>446466952People like AC because of the Cheesy dialogue and god-like soundtrackSame reason I love Top Gun despite it being far from a master pieceIt also came out 2 months after 11S and Burger Patriotic Sentiment was probably off the chartsBut this last one is just an incentive that explains why is more popular in the US when compared to Europe, Even tho some countries got "custom" covers for AC4 depending on their "main" jet. Spain got the Typhoon and France the Rafale, the appeal wasn't the same
Do we know what Strangereal's Japan stand-in is? The country that all the Nagases are from?
>>446468465Osea, which is US and Japan mixed together
I really hope that buying and selling prices of planes stay the same. I really liked that about the series.
>>446462284A straight man's choice, sir.
Does the D in the Falken's name stand for something IRL? I know the A and F would be Attacker and Fighter, but I don't think I've heard of planes with a D in the front of their name.
>>446468369>People like AC because of the Cheesy dialogueSpeak for yourself. Agreed on the soundtrack though.
>>446468609Rip Patrick James.
>>446468747DefensiveBecause Osea is supposed to have Defense Forces
Just ordered AC4 in anticipation since this one is agreed to be among the best.I'll wait a bit before playing AC7, though, what with KH3 coming out.
>>446465864Hands off, She's mine!
>>446442373Yes, it was a MIRV with essentially 8 nukes in one
>>446468369NoPeople play them because of the great stories, fun gameplay, wide plane selection, and god-tier OSTThe best games are the ones with the least cheesy dialogue
Here's a present for Belka
>>446468839>I've got a girlfriend back at base. I'm going to propose to her when we get back. I even bought flowers!
>>446469075The stories range from passable to bad.
>>446468341>its inSTIFF NIPS
>>446468839His first dialogue set up his death flag.
>>446468989I'm disappointed that I've never seen a Razgriz cosplay. It's practically the only recognizable AC character someone could cosplay as.
>>446468543 That mision in AC3 when Nemo says fuck it and just hack one of this was pretty dope
>>446469421Someone got a razgriz tattoo
>>446469183>It is unclear if the laser killed PJ instantly or if it crippled the aircraft to prevent his ejection, but by the time the aircraft crashed on the ground, PJ had died.Predictable, but still... :(
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqxDUMcVjwsI fucking love the AC5 trailer
>>446469075>>446468820Maybe "Chessy" is not the kind of word I was looking for and the original meaning was lost in translation, but you gotta admit that>"Those who survive a long time on the battlefield start to think they're invincible. I bet you do, too, Buddy.">"Go dance with the angels mister.">"Here comes the snow...">"Time to dive into the fireworks!">"Let us be blessed with glory as we pass through the gates of hell!"while they do in fact sound cool in the context ingame, they are kinda "chuuni?" as I said maybe the problem is not finding the correct word, I hope you can understand what I'm trying to convey
>>446469430The only thing interesting in AC04 is how the story is framed. Other than that it's basic "bad guys invade good guys, good guys pull back from the brink."5 had potential but is brought down heavily by retarded characters with equally retarded dialog. Weak villains with poor motivation ("grr revenge" and "I'M GONNA END WAR FOREVER") as well.0 is a mixed bag. The framing and pacing of the game are really great, but then the war ends and nonsensical villains with retarded goals spring up out of nowhere.
>>446469990The word you're looking for is theatrical.
>>446469990Other than the lines from 5 and 6, none of those are cheesy
>>446465378To be fair both ways, Ace Combat, like any cockpit control game, is one of the few games where VR could add to the experience. But it's not worth the expense of delaying the entire game just so a relatively small number of people with VR headsets can play it in VR. At best they might design the next Ace Combat with VR in mind from the start. For now, anyone who knows anything should be greatful we're getting a very good Ace Combat game after more than 11 years. There will be time to dwell on improvements to the series after we've experienced this rare treasure in this industry.
>>446464080>I hope the Arsenal Bird has some kind of defense againt plain old bombs.didn't you see the forcefield it can make?
>>446465240AC isn't even a simcade, its completely arcade
>>446424057I have started and never finished the Assault Horizon. This is my extent of an experience with the series.I have a semi-decent PC and PS4Pro.Is it really worth it?
>>446470163This is probably more fitting >>446470231>American educationOpinions on The Right Stuff?I have had the book on my list to read for a while now, so haven't watched the moviehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCL6EJ--WxA
I hope this helpshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H-z4rt3TRGA
>>446470806Yes, you don't even have to go back to Assault Horizon
>>446470806Ask after release. We've been given enough warning signs that it might end up bad.
>>446463062It is on the digital deluxe steam version
>>446470467>zeroMy dick everytime
>>446468568>tfw Turkey has F-4s with modern avionics
>>446471308Retarded tech tree is enough to raise red flags that it's going to be another grindfest.
>>446471013I can't get to emulate zero without drops of frames, it reaches to 40 FPS, help, my computer is shit but i watn to play it so bad
>>446471027I also heard that AH considered less than optimal by the fans.Is it true? Which one is good?>>446471040Ok. I liked the idea of an arcadish flight sim, and AH was fun for a few hours, but then I lost the interest for some reason, decided that I will come back to it later, and never finished it.
>>446471717Are you playing on a laptop or a decade-old shitbox?
>>446471712They already confirmed you don't have to grind this time. Once you buy something on the tree you automatically unlock the next item for purchase, unlike Infinity where you had research. Also, planes don't have levels in this game so there's no grinding there.
>>446471712One playthrough of the campaign is enough to complete one branch of the tree.
>>446471745>Which one is good?PS2 games are all good.AC2 and 3 are cool as well.AC6 is Xbox exclusive, suffers from cheesy even by japanese standards writing, but also has some really cool missions like fighting a giant airborne aircraft carrier.
>>446471918I'll believe it when I see it.>>446471957>one branch per playthroughSounds awful.Why the fuck can't they just use the old shop system? It was fine.
Will I get decent performance on a GTX 970 and 2600X? Also will I get my shit pushed in if I play online with a controller?
We will have our idolplanes back?
>>446472308What resolution? You should be fine with 720p, maybe 1080p depending on the degree of optimization the game has.
>>446472308GTX 1060 (The 3GB one) is listed as the recommended, so I think you should be fineIf the PC controls are anything close to the Asault Horizon ones, everyone will be playing with a controller
>>446472465Yes>>446472251if the thought of having to play a game more than once is putting you off, maybe you just aren't cut out for it
>>446471815Laptop it is. Intel Core i7-6500U 2.5 Ghz, RAM 6 GB, NVIDIA GeForce 940M
>>4464725521080p around 120fps is the minimum for me.
w-will i be able to run it?
>>446472719Confirmed? I can't live without Yukihawk or Haruraptor.
>>446466449You can actually destroy the SOLG by tearing it appart, all the solar panels and the pillars, i didn't knew english by then, but it was fun evading the parts that fell off from it after shooting at it, i only destroyed it properly once just to see how to do it
>>446472719There's no justifying a shitty grind when they already had a proper system in place.
>>446473154kono and shimoto said that franchise crossovers are definitely being considered.
we can use Su-57 !?
>>446472752You are doing something astronomically wrong, could play it on locked 60 with a toastertop 2 years older than that (i7-4700MQ, GTX770M)
>>446473326Good enough, Namco has always been great with collabs. Would be weird paying back Cygames with a Granblue one though.
>>446473360We've been able since 6.
>>446424057>arcade flight gameskek, /v/ is so pathetic
>>446473283the grind isn't shittythere are only 3 branches (burger, yuro, slavshit)
>>446473618Su-57 wasn't in 6
>>446473618It wasn't in 6.
>>446473640imagine not wanting to have fun
>>446473640>no fun allowed: the post
>>446473862your brain capacity is equivalent to a squirrel which is why you find fun in shitty arcade games
>>446473640I want a game where I shoot down a flying giant tank while evading macross missiles, i don't want a sim where it takes me 20 minutes to take off
>>446473682>want an F-22 and Su-37 in Zero>save up money and easily afford both when they're available>want an F-22 and Su-37 in 7>forced to play through the game multiple times and buy other shit I don't care aboutIt's shitty because it's a downgrade.The only upside is that you aren't locked to specific planes. Other than that it's as bad as 5.
>>446473997Oh no a DCS fag
>>446474104why would you not want to unlock all the planes?
>>446473814>>446473851Asswhore, my bad.
>>446474104Su-37 is a mid tier plane in this game, so it's entirely possible that you can get both.
>>446472132>PS2 games are all good>AC2 and 3 are cool as wellThanks. I will try to check some of them out when I'm awake and sober.I've just played around with PS2 emulator on my PC.>>446472892It's actually quite funny how it all works out with modern games. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHo74Evq8B0People who actually know their stuff, like DICE or Crystal Dynamics, produce beautiful games(even on low) which can run on a toaster, while one needs a top PC to maintain good consistent framerate with meh looking unoptimized games(think Arma).But as far as I know, flight sims should be kind of an exception, since you need to have only one high-resolution high-detail object one screen at a time, no?
>>446473997Don't you have to check the VKB store to see if the slavs finally decided to restock
>>446474228The point is that you're forced to waste resources on shit you don't particularly want instead of having the option of saving your money, sticking to the default planes, and buying what you want as soon as it's available. It's a step down from previous games and too in line with 5's shit.
>>446472892As long as you don't expect ultra settings @ 4k 144hz.Thats an integrated ryzen chip right? how's it?
>>446474462Depending on how the clouds are implemented, unless nvidia pulled another one of their jewish tricks, I don't expect the game to need a top pc.Ground strike missions will probably be more demanding than air superiority ones
>>446468747I always thought ADF stands for Advanced Defense Foghter
>>446460727Nah breh I'm going to try and beat it with an upgraded F-104
>>446475609Early game planes have more upgrade slots so that might not be that hard.
>Was planning to get it on PC>See it has VR >Excited to use my Vive on it>VR is PS4 Exclusive God fucking dammit can Sony fuck off making all the VR content for multiplat games exclusive? Fuck
>>446475830Shits gotta get funded somehow
>>446472892>>446474462PS If I remember correctly, two memory banks of a different size *can* actually work dual-channel, if one can set them with the same speed and timings.So if you have 2 Gb and 4 Gb planks, you will have 2+2 dual channel and 2 single channel. It's probably a significant difference for the integrated graphics. Memory bandwitch is extremely important for the GPU.>>446475058>cloudsI knew I've forgotten something.>unless nvidia pulled another one of their jewish tricksIs PhysX/GameWorks still a thing? I haven't monitored this stuff for quite a while.
>a new, proper Ace Combat after all these years>one more weekIs this really happening bros? This feels like a dream.
>>446476572It's finally time, buddy
Are you watching the planefu anime /v/?It has cute planes doing cute dogfighting
Is 7 a good place to start if I'm new to Ace Combat?
>>446476836but I already did that Last year
>>446477257They're all self-contained so yes
>>446476836Also a notCOFFIN>>446477265Culture, etc.
>>446474740Its very good for something cheap
Does it have online? Probably PC then because it will be a cold day in hell before I pay for online.
>>446477589PC will be dead because of cheaters. It's common in JP games.
You guys look alright. I will give the franchise a chance.Last question before going to bed: is there any signs of the VR support?
>>446477969read the thread
>>446477969Nothing confirmed outside of the separate mode for PS4.Maybe mods for the base game on pc.
>>446478070Ok, I'm retarded, thanks.
>>446478209Ok, thanks. I've already given up on MechWarrior or Black & White VR, but I think I still want some arcade flying fun.
>>446477445True. It's almost as good as the Gamescom 2018 trailer.
>>446477509And your legs
>>446448169The resemblance with our fanbase if uncanny, then.
>>446477843rather play online with cheaters than not online at all
>>446479347>rather go to a food handout event for homeless people than pay to eat at a good restaurant
>>446480292says the console cuck
>>446480408>notThe grippen got called by its name on the show tho.
>>446473431God dammit i hate being a brainlet
Which PS2 Ace Combat game is best?
>>446480670I'm just past the opening
>>446480785No fucking contest.
>>446480785I like 4 the most of the three. Something about the somewhat relaxed presentation sucks me into the game more than the others.
>>446480927This, you don't even have to ask.
>>446480785Zero is a meme for a reason
>>446476572I can't wait till february.
>>446483259Its a meme about campaign length don't pay attention to it
>>446483259For V3 Launch
>>446483665How is it a meme? Shorter campaigns work better for these games.
>>446484026It still won't be as short as 4 hours
>>446425626Go back to playing your shitty indie games nigger
>all the good games are sub-5 hoursHmm...>>446484379I hope it will be.
I just want something like the record of the aces you shot down in ACzero
I hope the keyboard experience isn't ass, because I might have to buy an adapter for my 360 controller, or see if the game has PS2 controller support
>>4464844676 is pretty good bar the story
>>4464844675 is a good game and I don't get why it hurts people's asses when I say that.
>>4464858855 isn't good, and the extra length thanks to filler missions is part of the reason why.
>>446486604Honestly I like a lot of 4 but it's rough going back to with just how uninspired the missions can be. Id say Zero < 5 < 4
>>446487882Fuck I hit the wrong >
>>446464080Wasn't there a part in the gameplay where the smaller drones were flying around it, taking missile hits for it?
What planes are we getting in the game?
>>446487882I can understand that but it's more due to how the physics changed between 04 and 5. Between the two 04 is still the superior game just because it lacks all of 5's flaws.
>>446488882Go to bamcos youtube channel they have tons of videos that show rosters but none specifically devoted to them not even sure if they show the full thing
>>446485138Was good being a support wing, picking your own battles as needed. Also the scale was like never before. Awesome game, but cheesy as fuck.
>>446490053The part where you can retake an airfield and land on it mid mission to rearm is still amazing
i saw some people saying ace combat 7 is supposed to be a prequel to ace combat 3. any truth to it or is that fake news?
>>446491863Well 3 is the latest in the timeline and this is set before it technically
>>446491863There's a lot to do with drones and AI in the story, so there's a chance it could be connected loosely. I also heard a rumor that a character from 3 is supposed to cameo, but I don't know if that's bullshit or not.
>>446490597That would be Siege on Silvat. That's my favorite mission.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6tVfu7qomEA
>>446424057I have a PSVR so PS4
>>446438840>first mission is called First Flighthttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgNGtGI-XbM
final mission is in spacefellas...
>>446494830that's it, I'm preordering
>>446494830Well, that is an unknown sky>flying an F-22 up a space elevator
>No one ever posts AC3 musicCryin shame https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fzjPnoSNprE
>>446494830how hard would you nut if the final mission was you in a superplane vs the ADF-01 on the edge of space around as you fight around a falling space elevator and trigger dies reentering the atmosphere as a redeemed hero in the eyes of Osea, with a shot of his tail's paint burning away has his 3 strikes are "removed"
>>446495527Shoot, i specifically meant to say the ADF-02. The plane we assume to be the mini drone in an ADF body
>>446495527>and trigger dies reentering the atmosphere as a redeemed hero in the eyes of Osea, with a shot of his tail's paint burning away has his 3 strikes are "removed"Breh...
>>446469421I dunno, I'd say you can stand out with the patches
I hope Zipang or something similar is back. I loved having purple missile trails.
RIP thread, see you buddies tomorrow.
