    - Strangereal
    - Dropping the 'assist' garbage from Assault Horizon
    - Excellent music
    - Appropriately bonkers storytelling
    - Massive superweapons
    - VR missions

    Yes.

    Excellent news!

    Hopefully, as you guys have all said so far, we'll get it without the stupid "assist" from AH. Squadron Leader was the highlight for me.

    Real world aircraft armed with Macross rivalling numbers of missiles? Check.
    Stupid names for everything? Check.
    Incomprehensible plot? Check.
    Waifu central plot device/love interest? Check.
    First level super weapon kills all your buddies? Check.
    Incongruous Japanese EDM lift music? Check.

    Yup, it's Ace Combat alright. Looks like being as Ace Combat-ey as ever, can I buy a version that's just the plane-fu?

    Yep, I'm in. Proper Ace Combat and PC Cheesecake! I might have to buy a separate HOTAS throttle though.

    Does anyone know of a HOTAS set with force feedback?

    Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback 2

    So good it killed off the Force Feedback stick market. Or BAE systems will sell you one :lol:

    Just more comfortable than standard stick with a tidgy throttle watsit. Plus I like flightsims - I'd enjoy DCS a lot more with one.

    does this have Multiplayer Missions Yet ? when it launched i was dissapointed to find Multiplayer was only PVP rather than Co-Op Missions

    i mean how bonkers would some missions to be to have 4 times the enemies, but also 3 wingmen to back you up ?
    4 arsenal birds and their escorting drones...

    THAT would get my money

    I haven't played for some time but I ought to fire it up and check. I was hugely dissapointed by the PvP multiplayer. I was hoping they would do something like Ace Combat Infinity where you sortie with a group of players. Even though it was full of micro transactions (free to play!) on the PS3 I really enjoyed the format.

    the second SP mission landed (fnar) the other day, holy **** is an understatement. who'd have thought the add on mission would be so much better than the core game?

    god that OST is so damn good.

    Remember a few years ago when EA declared that Dead Space 3 had to shift 5 million copies or the franchise would get canned?

    Project Aces just announced that Ace Combat 7 passed 3 million copies sold. Not only did they throw a party, they're releasing some new skins for free, adding some classic tracks to the multiplayer rotation, they'll be adding in yet more aircraft and Ace Combat 8's just started development.

    Take that Triple A gaming.

    Oooh DLC, I must admit I'd uninstalled AC7 as I'd got bored not being able to do the last 2 missions for the guns only achievement!
