I'm not sure I completely understand the boost mechanics or strategy of the time attack race. After 5 attempts, my best time was over 2:56, well short of the 2:45 needed to win. I can't clearly see how to shave off 12 seconds. Perhaps it's just a matter of understanding the physics model?

The Erebus power grid is insanely good so it's way better at handling extremely rapid spikes in demand. Many of the next-generation beams require dedicated reactors which are super heat and space intensive; the Erebus is able to supply the pulse beams off the mains.

-Phuur-Nan Expedition, Unknown System#2, Unknown Galaxy (Presumed)-

This time, the response came without hesitation. The cursor started moving and spitting out words the moment Raonaid's hands left the keyboard.

IT SEEMS THAT YOU DESIRE TO GET STRAIGHT TO THE POINT. VERY WELL THEN.

1. YOU BELIEVE YOURSELVES TO BE MERELY IN A DIFFERENT GALAXY, BUT THE TRUTH IS THAT YOU ARE IN A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT UNIVERSE FROM YOUR PLACE OF ORIGIN. THIS UNIVERSE IS ONE OF THE MANY THAT HAVE RECENTLY BECOME ACCESSIBLE DUE TO THE APPEARANCE OF SPACETIME DISTORTIONS SUCH AS THE ONE YOU PASSED THROUGH.

2. WE STUDY AND OBSERVE. WE TRADE AND MAKE DEALS. WE ACQUIRE TECHNOLOGY AND KNOWLEDGE. THAT IS SUFFICIENT EXPLANATION FOR NOW.

3. WE DID NOT. THE MACHINES YOU FOLLOWED HERE ARE KNOWN LOCALLY AS THE COLONIZERS. WE ARE CURRENTLY STUDYING THEIR BEHAVIOR. YOU JUST HAPPENED TO ENTER OUR CURRENT SPHERE OF INFLUENCE WHILE WE WERE DOING SO.

4. IN ADDITION TO THE COLONIZERS, THIS UNIVERSE IS HOME TO A GREAT VARIETY OF TECHNOLOGICALLY ADVANCED SOCIETIES. WE WOULD ASK THAT YOU BE MORE SPECIFIC IN YOUR REQUEST.


"Well, that clears up things. If the drones, or the Colonizers as they are called, are of a different party from the Mahasu Coalition, it explains why they still have to communicate with us even after the drones scanned us about a dozen times," Shaked said.

"More importantly, they say we are in a different universe altogether. How much do you think we can trust them?" Raonaid asked.

"If I saw this a year ago I would have said they have lost their minds," Shaked said, "but now? We should consider any possibility, I will pass this information to the science team and see what they make of it.... As soon as they are done throwing their tantrum, of course."

"If universe-crossing portals are popping up everywhere, there may be more back in our galaxy, too. Lieutenant, send the homeworld a heads-up, we may soon be dealing with things stranger than the Progenitors."

"Understood."

"So, they are the Bentusi type, or at least this is what they claim," Ferdi said. "If they are capable of messing with our systems remotely I am going to assume their tech is years ahead of us. A useful ally to have, a sticky enemy to make, just like the Bentusi."

"Let's give them the benefit of doubt for now, we'll hear what they have to offer before we decide," Raonaid said and continued typing.

Very well. What kind of deal would you like to negotiate?

Interesting. Makes you wonder why those are mounted only on the Erebus though. If anything they'd be most useful on cruisers like the Hyperion in ship-to-ship combat.

He is talking about David Cage, the face on dev-side to Detroid: Become Human, Beyond: Two Souls, Indigo Prophecy etc.

Hitting on the man's "creative" (euthemism) creative choices in terms of both gameplay and narrative as well as his marketing claims to have produced the nect big epic, is one of those low hanging fruits in discorse on Game as an art form. *yawn*

Hey, just wanted to share with you all, well, what the subject says. I'm the voice of Fencer, a pilot in Ace Combat 7.

Still waiting on another good space flight game!

If you're referring to Telltale, the similarities end there. Detroit is a brilliant game and I highly recommend it. I just wish they'd gotten Brent Spiner to do one of the voices!

I'm currently at the scene where you meet Tempest and Justice, and I got tired of clicking the mouse so I tried pressing spacebar. This produced a rapidly repeating noise that wouldn't stop until the next loading screen.

EDIT: Seems the be a broader issue with the visual novel scenes. Lesson learned - don't press spacebar.
