Re: Ace Combat 7 - All the strangereal please
And we got the Preorder info for the consoles:
1. Prices are as expected for modern console games
2. PS4 owners get AC5 as a preorder bonus
3. xbone owners get AC6
4. Steam users get .... we don't know what. Presumably nothing.

There's also some airplane skins, but who cares. Getting AC5 on PS4 means I'll get it for PS4.

Re: Ace Combat 7 - All the strangereal please
Steam users could get ACAH as that's the only AC game with a PC port, but nobody wants that one. Or they could just give us an ACZ .iso and the latest version of PCSX2  :lol:

Does the colour of the sky mean anything special to you?

Not Strange Real, but Holy ****...


Still one of the sexiest machines to take to the skies IMHO.

Eh. It got nothin' on my F-4. Phantom didn't need to look good to be a beast in the skies.  :lol:

I am an old old fan/junkie of US air power. I KNOW the Tomcat was basically there to replace the Phantom. Don't say it.  :D

I genuinely teared up a bit during that takeoff sequence.

I wonder if they also repair Swordfish Mk IIs?

Feel like some of those shots are based on older AC artwork/wallpapers/stills/etc...  :)

I see the Osean defence industry is just as enamoured with shiny promo material as the Lockheeds of our world

Re: Ace Combat 7 - All the strangereal please
I'm really excited to finally play some Ace Combat, I've always wanted to play it, but I've never had the consoles to do it. I tried emulating it but my ISP slapped me as soon as I tried, which is fairly surprising for such old games. How heavily do the games rely on each other, story or character-wise?

Re: Ace Combat 7 - All the strangereal please
With the exception of Zero, which is an explicit prequel to 5, none of the games have very much to do with each other. At most you will see some minor references in terms of character names, recurring nations, and old superfighters making a comeback.
If you don't have Knossos, you need it.

Re: Ace Combat 7 - All the strangereal please
I'm sincerely tempted to preorder this since it has a slight discount on Fanatical, Joystick support is the big issue since the only "official" support is for the Thrustmaster HOTAS 4 which is basically a HOTAS-shaped PS4 controller and nowadays there is the strong possibility of not being able to rebind awkwardly positioned buttons in tripla A games.

For dinput controllers? No way, it would make them pretty much unusable. It's semi common with xinput but for KBM or any dinput device you'll have rebinding in some form. Might not be in-game but you'll have a utility or launcher that does it.

For PC at least. Obviously on consoles you're stuck with what you get.

Battlefront II supported Dinput but no remapping, it just had a couple of pre-defined configurations to choose from. I had to both to use 360CE and make a Control Manager profile to be able to map the buttons properly otherwise I woud have had to use the pinky button to fire lasers.
