    Is this vr on pc or only psvr? I'm curious what the experience is like with vr and a flightstick. If I came into some money I could see my dad love playing like that. He had a nice stick and the thing with a throtitle and buttons on it as well in the 90''s and loved the flight sim stuff.

    Only PSVR from what I read in this thread.

    AC5 is easily the stingiest with regards to missiles.

    There are a lot of early missions where you have 50-60 missiles and you still need to gun down targets or you won't have missiles for later on against the harder enemies.

    Also I forgot how great and dumb the plot is.

    A mission where a suborbital giant ship is shooting laserfire through the atmosphere at a submarine capable of launching planes and explosive missile waves.

    Ace Combat 7's "anime" plot seems to be in full force here.

    I literally can't imagine a western war game where enemy invades territory and doesn't immediately reveal themselves to be a bunch of bloodthirsty murders straight from hell, probably with Slavic-sounding names. Meanwhile, it looks like..
    Erusea took the entire Space Elevator, not to mention sunk a bunch aircraft carriers, without a single civilian casualty.

    Though that might not last.

    I'm thinking I'm about halfway in, and the Anime Index is still at acceptable levels. Angels have yet to be danced with. I repeat, there has been no dancing with any angels so far.

    Oh my god. If I could distill how I feel about this game into one moment and how good it is and how much I enjoy it, it would be:
    when you finish the rescue in the spires and just when it seems things are good, that lone enemy pilot (Mihaly I think?) swoops in and takes out several effortlessly and you engage in a dogfight with him and it was so super tense and felt like I was just barely holding him off, and then when he finally withdrew it was both a relief and felt like a huge victory.

    The most run on of sentences but I can't help but gush about this game. So good.

    Only PSVR from what I read in this thread.

    The VR missions are exclusive to PSVR in 2019. One of the physical copy covers for AC7 said “VR Missions exclusive to PS4 until January 18, 2020" which would be one year of exclusivity. I would guess that Project Aces uses the feedback from the PSVR missions to build out a more extended VR mode when they can be on all VR systems next year.

    I'm a little disappointed that (campaign up to ~chapter 6 spoilers)
    that you don't become a penal unit pilot due to being captured by Erusea, forcing you to switch sides. That would have been a more interesting narrative.)

    Finding Air to Ground weapons to be in line with previous versions. Just better to use missiles and equip better air to air specials for fast moving drones and such.

    I love the F-22, but probably my favorite thing about it is that we cannot* make more of them.

    Some years back Congress decided to look in to the feasibility of restarting the program. So they sent people to check on the conex boxes in which the, I forget the technical name, but the jigs, moldings, and castings to produce the parts for the jets were stored.

    What they found was. . . nothing. The conexes were empty. Where the Gov't thought they had stored everything turned out to be wrong and they've no clue where they are.

    *the asterisks is that we can make more, but we would literally have to reverse engineer our own aircraft to figure out how to do it and that'd cost a ludicrous amount of money.

    That's some Warhammer 40k shit right there.


    Things getting lost in Gov't bureaucracy isn't that uncommon either. Just a couple years ago on a random Air Force base workers opened up an old bunker in an overgrown, abandoned part of the base that hadn't been touched in decades. What they found was something like 27 nuclear warheads. Just sitting there, protected by only a chain and a padlock. No one had a clue that they were even there.

    I'm thinking I'm about halfway in, and the Anime Index is still at acceptable levels. Angels have yet to be danced with. I repeat, there has been no dancing with any angels so far.

    For me, the anime index shot up exponentially with a potentially 'dancing with the angel's' moment, when during the cutscene for (I think) the 5th or 6th mission tells you Mihaly's "real" name... holy crap, I literally laughed out loud through the entire cutscene and the mission briefing.

    I swear, it's gotta be clip art!

    *for the record I am absolutely loving this game though. The gameplay is finally back to the roots and it feels and looks amazing. Maybe next game they'll just forgo the story and just add story text to the missions instead. It's a waste of production $ imo...

    I’m not far into the story, as my plans for launch day changed. But I’m digging the gameplay.

    And while the story is suitably ridiculous, I really like the concept of the phony airbase slash prison. Wherein, court-martialed pilots must bear the ironic punishment of having to go out and revv up their engines and listen to the howling roar, while despite the begging of the metal under tension, they’ll never be allowed to touch and go.
