What is Ace Combat?

300px-Ace_Combat_Logo.png

Ace Combat is a generation/console-spanning action game series starring several tens of different warplanes, from even the F4U Corsair used in the Pacific Theater of WW2, to the F-14 Tomcat so romanticized by Top Gun, to the previous generation of cutting edge stealth fighters such as the F-22 Raptor, and even featuring some planes that have yet to exist! The piloting of these planes is set against a backdrop of war and conflict, sometimes even exploring the psychic costs of war long after peace has been obtained, whether it's through flying your plane through a tiny underground tunnel to destroy a control panel, dismantling world-shaking superweapons, or taking to the skies to shoot down other aces. The amount of missiles you can carry is complete fantasy (lol 80 missiles how would that even get off the ground) but the concepts are totally bitchin'!

The Arkbird, a spacecraft capable of deploying a ground-targeting laser:

Stonehenge, an array of railguns originally built to destroy an asteroid, repurposed for anti-air superiority:

640?cb=20130811170840

Chandelier, a single massive railgun built again to combat an asteroid:

Excalibur, a chemical laser tower built for anti-missile defense:

latest?cb=20090122094652

The Hekatonkheires, a trio of aerial fortresses consisting of the Aigaion, the Gyges, and the Kottos:

The Ace Combat series spans 18 games, some better than the others (Ace Combats 4, 5, and 0 are probably the best), and a stellar soundtrack for most of them. Seriously, it's probably one of the more underrated game series with amazing music out there.

    I loved flight sims as a kid and I have never played an ace combat.

    Falcon 3.0 and mig 29 were my jam.

    oh, and tie fighter.

    I grabbed the Anime Dev Studio game from Kairosoft and am having fun with it

    It's essentially Game Dev Story, which is one of the best games they made, with different skins and a new (though largely superficial) character design thing where you can make your own highly marketable character

    Some of my award-winning series so far:
    - Rose of the Ring, a shoujo romance series that combines boxing with gardening
    - Sing Dunk!, depicting the struggles of a pop idol academy's basketball team
    - Espionage Eleven, a tale of spies and subterfuge in the world of soccer

    someone asked about noise at a concert.

    if it is a rock concert noisy screamin crowds are part of the social experience.

    if it is a performance of für elise, you are a dickhole for being noisy.

    What if you inform everyone around during their near total silence that "THIS IS [YOUR] FAVORITE SONG!" and proceed to singularly sing along, as loudy as you are offkey?

    It is 8pm

    I have eaten 720 calories all day thus far

    I worked out and burned over 1000 in the gym.

    My upcoming dinner is about 550 calories.

    ...

    Maybe I should order chinese instead - I am like, dangerously low here.

    I think you can send them back with gifts. I don't remember if outfits can be gifts, though.

    I like to go to movies then I set my phone to speaker mode, max the volume, and ask siri as loudly as possible to spoil the plot for me.

    Sometimes the best way to participate in the social aspect of movie-going is to be the supervillain.

    But I also really like that I am 10 pounds down in the past three weeks, and this would probs be real counterproductive to my goals of not looking stupid in my too tight nice clothes.

    ...

    Maybe I eat the big salad, but then go grab a small ice cream or something.

    I have an android, and obviously I don't actually do any of the things I just said.

    Also I loathe voice recognition technology in general. It never understands me, despite the fact that I speak impeccable, virtually unaccented American English.
