I can't wait for Ace Combat assuming they'll listen to fans and make it like the older games and less like Assault Horizon.

From an complete Stranger to Ace Combat Universe, what is the Purpose of this female Sky Diver? She seems not to have any Rocket jump on her Back. But she resembles a bit of N7 Armor of Mass Effect (Plus points for that) or a bit of Knights of Sidonia, (also Plus points)

For rez in VR

I hope there is not a strong motion sickness feeling. But looks like its okay, because the Live performance player, was smiling and being proud of his work. So, i assume it is a very negative weak of motion sickness feeling here


Looks like the VR World is really about to happen, they take their time and no rush things

Even Cars was not build overnight, right? (Toyota)

Urgh! Assault Horizon was terrible. The story might've been better (and a bit more realistically neutral and less the ARYAN FREEDOM PROPAGANDA VIDEO-like that AC6 was), but they completely ravaged the gameplay itself. The dogfight mode was particularly annoying, because it meant that most battles turned into a "enter dogfight mode, shoot down plane, exit -- lather, rinse, repeat" thing.

I played the game up to the point where I had to chase down and shoot a huge missile while avoiding its slipstream. It was a really annoying part, especially since I think the game was bugged: if I couldn't manage to shoot it down in time, the retrying sessions were bugged as hell in that the missile would always manage to escape after around five seconds, forcing me to replay the entire goddamned stage. AC6's story might've been hokey as balls, but that game had a real sense of... um... freedom when it came to the gameplay.

I think the dogfight mode was a good idea that was poorly executed.

The problem was that its pretty much forced upon you. What they should have done was make it more of an optional power up that you could only use after destroying a certain number of targets like AC6's ability to call in allied air support. The ability to easily pull of fancy maneuvers or stay on target once in awhile is a nice way to break up the monotony that occasionally settles in with AC's gameplay. As much as I love the AC series getting stuck in a 3-5 minute turn battle with enemy aces can get boring.

Aye, AC6 is arguably the best AC in terms of gameplay, and the Nimbus is easily my favorite super weapon battle in the franchise.

This could be the killer app that sells me VR.

I kinda hope Sony will also get them to make another more dedicated VR Ace Combat on the side that aims for a full 90-120 fps experience that takes better advantage of the medium.
