Ace Combat 7 - All the strangereal please

Oh yes.
Let there be light
Let there be moon
Let there be stars and let there be you
Let there be monsters and let there be pain
Let us begin to feel again

Re: Ace Combat 7 - All the strangereal please
I'm just glad to hear we're getting PC support. Hopefully the game play returns to the days of AC4, AC5, ACZ, and AC6.
<Axem> yet still more insightful than #hard-light

<Axem> jad2.23 will just be cat videos

<DahBlount> So
<DahBlount> JAD2.2 is like that
<Axem> maybe
<Axem> it can be whatever you like!
<DahBlount> A Chocolate Sundae?
<Axem> sure

Re: Ace Combat 7 - All the strangereal please
That story sounds right about like it's So Bad It's Good (from the trailer), and the images of an F/A-18 Hornet firing a centerline mounted laser cannon have me ****ing sold.  Also UAVs/drones taken to their illogical conclusion sounds fun.

Re: Ace Combat 7 - All the strangereal please
I have not played much of any of the series so I don't know any of the story or characters, but this looks like fun! I have about a couple of hours each in AC6 and Assault Horizon.  I know AH is viewed negatively by many AC fans, and I'm not sure yet what I think of the QTE mechanic, but I've had fun playing so far.

What I want to know is who's so suicidal as to hop into a Starfighter :P

Have any of the previous games been available on PC?  I assumed no but never really looked.

Assault Horizon is the only one on PC that I am aware of.

Re: Ace Combat 7 - All the strangereal please
Yes, Assault Horizon is the only Ace Combat game with a PC port but you can emulate the older games since PCSX2 recently added mipmapping support, the lack of which was previously causing emulation issues for AC4, 5, and zero.

Re: Ace Combat 7 - All the strangereal please
Is Assault Horizon any good?  I know these are arcade games but I want to play them at least sorta sim-like with my X45 so I'm not terribly interested in emulating the old ones.  And beyond that, emulating in general I find rather meh.

Re: Ace Combat 7 - All the strangereal please
If emulation isn't your thing that's fine but it would be completely possible to remap a HOTAS as a gamepad and rig the controls using Lilypad. The AC games on the PS2 use the DS2's pressure-sensitive buttons so it's also possible to use an axis for accurate yaw and speed control since the game will read it as a very precise pressure-sensitive button. It would make the menus... quite difficult to navigate though.

If you're looking to play sim-like Asssault Horizon is definitely not what you're looking for. It uses a system called "dogfight mode" which makes your plane fly on rails and this system is forced on you quite often. It also has horrible door gunner and AC-130 gunner segments straight out of cod, I can't imagine those playing well on a joystick.



Also, Vector Thrust is 75% off on Steam right now. It's an arcadey AC-like flight sim with some really fun(if completely unrealistic) post-stall manoeuvring and a huge variety of planes for challenge and skirmish modes. It's quite buggy and unpolished with the only story campaign being pretty short but for ~6$ it's completely fine and there are a few decent mod campaigns for it.

Fires of Liberation might be a better bet.  Assault Horizon introduced a lot of funky mechanics to the combat system while AC6 was still the over the top arcade flight game feel.  I had to mess around with the settings quite a bit to get Assault Horizon to play more like the old games.  Fires of Liberation doesn't lose out to much to the newer titles in the looks department either.

Re: Ace Combat 7 - All the strangereal please
Well I know what my next must have ps4 game is.
Ace combat gear solid.

If it comes with PSVR support I might even consider saving for that...


Edit-

From last December VR seems likely based on the experience and VR tags.

Vector Thrust lost me at "cel shaded."  I don't know why but i just cannot stand that style, even though I know I am missing out on some great games that use it.

Re: Ace Combat 7 - All the strangereal please
My face was delighted when I saw the little steam icon at the end. I just hope it steps away from the direction that they took with assault horizon and shift a bit back to the older games. I did get that impression from this trailer so, yeah. Looks good!
Urutorahappī!!

[02:42] <@Axem> spoon somethings wrong
[02:42] <@Axem> critically wrong
[02:42] <@Axem> im happy with these missions now
[02:44] <@Axem> well

Re: Ace Combat 7 - All the strangereal please
Kono confirmed it would play more like AC5 and ACZ than AC:AH. DFM isn't making a comeback but high-G turns are and it'll be the same simplified system they used in the recent ACs.
Not sure how I feel about that since it reduces turnfights to spamming the airbrake because you get a big boost in turnrate every time you press and release it.

The story looks like it'll be like AC5 too with a "war is bad and all sides are terrible" theme, I just hope they handle it with a bit more subtlety.

Subtlety is about the last thing I am expecting from an AC game.
