    Yeah I was joking based on how many times it has been mentioned, but thanks :)

    I can't remember which one I last played but I remember not quite liking it as much as the idea of it. Often the way with me and flight type games. Think the Gamecube Star Wars one was the last one I really enjoyed.

    Unless you're on PC, in which case fuck you, you get it later - and no free game for you either.

    I've seen people saying they got one just for those two games, so don't take this as gospel (clearly), but... Probably?

    What am I, Bamco customer services or something.

    I believe it is compatible with the Thrustmaster (fnar fnar) HOTAS assuming that is what you own.

    I may buy a special helmet

    I already have a motorcycle helmet on standby.

    It has flip down internal shades.

    Oh yeah.

    Those 3 VR levels are going to ruin the full game though. All you'll be thinking is "shit I wish this was in VR"

    Unless you puke all over yourself. Which you probably wouldn't do, whereas I probably would.

    Is this the first game thread that also serves as a nervous breakdown?

    If so it's a nervous breakdown that's been going on for about thirty years, so more a set of user accounts documenting it.

    Also: hello, it appears we haven't met either.

    Good to see my license fee being used to film BBC employees on a PR jolly.

    Just read there will be a VR demo tomorrow (already out on the Japanese store if you want it sooner).

    INSTALLING......INSTALLING.....

    Yes, Assault was absolute bobbins. Last AC I played was that F2P attempt on the PS3 which went back to the old-style AC, and was fun during the trial weekends. When the pay-to-play fuel mechanic went live, well, it utterly ruined it allowing you three or so runs per day before it required cash injections. Those anime skins seemed like bargains in comparison....

    So to get a free up-res of AC5 (or AC6 for Xbox) is quite surprising, and I'm worried I'll actually enjoy that more just for the nostalgia - Zero would've been more fun though with all the squadron battles.

    The only worry I've seen is the sneaky season pass at £20 featuring six additional packs (whatever they may be), aircraft and a music player.

    So yeah, I'll have a blast after my daily stuff in STO and report back.

    I didn't really like the Ace Combat series, just couldn't get on with it. I much preferred IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey & HAWX 2

    Iíve preordered this but Iím a bit worried about the review embargo on this and the minimal mention of microtransactions in the media. This is Namco after all.

    Hawx.....ugh.

    It's high-res, PS2-era AC in a nutshell. No frills, no innovation, just good, old fashioned jet porn fun.

    Same old serious-but-twee story, same old swish presentation, same old cracking soundtrack. MP is a bit tacked on, nothing amazing, and I'd hoped it'd have some team PvE like the F2P experiment, rather than the grind of unlocks that might make it bearable to deal with those who'll take PvP far too seriously.

    So yeah, definitely nostalgic, kinda like a comfy pair of slippers. I'll enjoy it at least.

    No microtransactions that I've seen do far - just that season pass. Not to say they won't add cosmetic skins as usual later though.

    And if you have the pre-order code that doesn't currently work, don't panic. It won't go live until tomorow.

    I gave the PSVR demo a quick try. Enjoyable but not mindblowing were my first impressions but it's a pretty short demo.

    Can anyone confirm this still has replays?

    That was my favourite bit. Like little bytesized Top Gun tv shows.

    @StarchildHypocrethes

    I've definitely seen replays on a Youtube video. It wasn't an official vid it was a small gaming channel that had like two or three missions on early access. Will be difficult to find now as there's shed loads of AC7 spam in the last week.

    EDIT - thanks to the magic of Whatsapp search tool:

    The VR stuff lasts about 45 minutes apparently.

    Replays, oh yes. Still gorgeous, still lacking a decent smart camera though. Options to select cameras, toggle the radio chat/music on or off, fast forward/slow motion and the ability to look around with right stick.

    So I eventually decided to get the US version, thinking, if they did end up gimping the EU AC5 and fobbed us off with some 50hz shit (which would REALLY boil my piss), I'd get around that. And besides, it's slightly cheaper that way (46 quid versus 50).

    Felt pretty, pretty... Pretty smart. Smarty, smartpants. Super smart.

    Then I realised I'm on US time, so the game I thought I could play for an hour before bed won't fucking unlock until 5AM our time.

    GNNNNNN
