    DANGER ZONE

    Video games, remember them? Those things we used to do between complaining about how the world had turned to shit, before the world turned to ten times as shit and complaining about it became a full time fucking job.

    Now let's all watch this disappear off the front page together, faster than a farage (wotacunt) promise, as everyone round here continues to moan in ever decreasing circles in a political thread on a cunting video game forum.

    Or how about FUCKING NO. How about we all talk about, oh, I don't know, MAYBE A VIDEOGAME. Maybe one that is OUT, like, IN TWO DAYS?
    (OR: POLITICS - HAVE A FUCKING DAY OFF, WILL YOU.)

    Not just any videogame. This is one of THE videogames. One of the reasons you bought a playstation (yeah you did - you just don't remember); like Resident Evil (yay, also arriving soon on PS4) and WipeOut (yay, already here, and in glorious PSVR-o-rama), or Tekken (yay, already here, and... I still need to buy it, actually) or Ridge Racer (*blinks*... /Tumbleweed).

    Also, it's one of the few videogames where you can legitimately quote top gun out your arse, and not get strange looks off of the cat (I have a very discerning cat, though; if I shout "I'm gonna hit the brakes, he'll fly right by" at him while playing anything else, I'd never hear the fucking end of it).

    So, look, I'm going to try to ignore MOTHERFUCKING BREXIT for just ONE FUCKING DAY (please, BBC: JUST ONE TWATTING DAY), and this will be the last time I refer to it or any of the cunts involved, because ACE FUCKING COMBAT 7, MOTHERFUCKERS.

    So join me (I mean just buy the game; don't get all fucking Facebook on me), as I step back in time to the golden age of cheesy cutscenes, plane porn, and 90% game time spent chasing a beeping reticle after a barely discernable dot to a ridiculously OTT soundtrack.
    Alternatively, moan about something FUCKING GAME RELATED. PLEASE. ANYTHING BUT HER. I CAN'T TAKE ANY MORE OF THERESA MAY'S FUCKING GORMLESS AND YET STILL PARADOXICALLY SCHEMING FACE.

    It's out in two days. Did I mention that already.

    And yes, I did pick that category in order to fool some of you into posting here; and no, I've clearly not thought it through, did I - have a word.

    /Reads about the free preorder AC5 possibly being a PAL 50hz version

    FFS, where's my motherfucking gun, fuck this noise, etc.

    ITS MY DAMN THREAD, SHOUTING IS NOT ONLY ALLOWED BUT FUCKING ENCOURAGED

    should perhaps have mentioned the swearing, yeah: AS IS SWEARING.

    If you want calm discourse, then might I suggest an actual political thread, somewhere in that direction.

    Theresa May wouldn't be able to deliver on Ace Combat 7 if she was in charge of development. There would be endless obstrcttion from the art team "We don't want to use F22 we want to return the classic F16s only but we want to be able to keep the capabilities of the F22." Management would come in all heavy handed declaring "The world has moved on the F16 was primarily an air to air combat plane designed for air superiority with the soviet union the F22 is a dual strike figher with both air, land and sea strike capabilties." The art teams would bleat and say "BUT WE REALLY WANT F16. ITS BETTER THAN THE RAPTOR IT HAS MORE CONTROL IN HEAVY DRAG SITUATIONS". At this point a pilot pops in and says "Actually no with the sleek design and the retooled engines the F22 ensures more missions end in a successful strike than using the F16. At which point the art team shouts "SHUT IT YOU. WE'VE HAD ENOUGH OF EXPERT. THE F16 is better". A kindly Geography teacher walks in, he addressed the team "Actually we can let players both use the F22 and the F16." To which the players respond "HOW? WE ONLY HAVE ONE FUCKING JOYSTICK"

    AC4 was brilliant. 5 was good as well though, no?

    Assault Horizon was meh, I hope they got rid of the the silly dogfight action mode thingy. :-/

    I've got this pre-ordered on PC. I'm pretending Assault Horizon never happened. In that world, this is the direct line sequel to Ace Combat 6, which was one of my favorite 360 exclusives.

    I do hope they have the Idolmaster designs for the planes again. Nothing quite like dramatic life-or-death cutscenes featuring a bright-pink F22 with an anime girl drawn across its wings.

    End of this month is seriously good for game releases. Kingdom Hearts 3, Battlefleet Gothic 2 and this, all within a few days of each other.

    Mine's pre-ordered. Look's like they've taken a lot of the criticisms of AH on board; it returns to the fictional world of the older ones at least and the gameplay videos looks like it ignores the 'improvements' of AH.

    That being said I didn't actually hate Assault Horizon. It just had completely the wrong idea of what people liked about Ace Combat. It felt like it was by a different developer

    I thought about it, but 480p on 4k screen will look shit, with the HUD filling the whole screen. Best left in the memory bank.

    Finally a thread on this. I actually came to make one, but I'd have done it, erm, differently 😂

    Yes I'm tremendously excited for this, abaolute dearth of aircraft games on console (Air Missions Hind is OK, but severely unpolished). I grew up loving jets and have played AC 2, 3, 5 and 6 extensively (missed 4).

    AH was OK, yeah it missed the Strangereal stuff and was a bit bloody yeeehah COD 'murrica but it was still good jet porn, despised the lack of proper gun reticle and the QTE dogfight mode though.

    This looks like the proper stuff, the videos released look superb. Have preordered from Amazon and will therefore get the Phantom and a free copy of 6 on back compat.

    There's actually far more games I'm excited avout this year than last year, but this tops it. Can't wait for the weekend.

    Iím waiting to see how much PSVR content there is but this is my most anticipated 2019 game.
    Bit worrying that there are no reviews yet though, is there an embargo?

    I've heard there are only 3 missions on psvr.

    Also heard the free game with pre-order is 16gb so some visual improvements must have been made.

    Apparently the PSVR is a group of special missions (although they don't look very special), a hangar mode where you can see the plane model/decals and an airshow mode where you choose the planes and choose the tricks they'll do.

    Sounds interesting but not a way to play the majority of the game (like Resi 7)

    I'm excited about this anyway, it's such a small genre nowadays I'm happy to jump into some planes and turn in circles around an opponent until one of us gets tired and blown up.

    If anyone is up for the multiplayer add me TP_Review on PSN

    I actually totally use this in real life to say no.

    I know, I'm so cool, you don't all need to tell me.

    Also, I've read that there is a free flight mode in PSVR.
    As for the game size of the old game, was it dual layer? Might account for it.

    There's leaked gameplay all over Youtube from Japan. I don't want to spoil too much so just watched briefly. Looks very reminiscent of 6 in gameplay, handling, in the hangar etc, which is great. Graphics are excellent.

    I also love how you get some absolute relics like the Mig 21 and Starfighter in amongst the more modern fare.

    Reportedly three planes will be with the DLC. From what I like and is missing I'd hope for Tornado, Harrier, Intruder, (Flight of the Intruder FTW) and stuff like that and not some robot anime stuff.

    The dev diary video is worth watching. Shows the score being recorded with a small orchestra, sounds really nice.
