Well, there's the ruins of Stonehenge to fly around, so that's a pretty clear fanservice - but a nice one.

I suppose.

I thought you were getting more onto the fact that recently whenever someone suggests letting a series die, or keeping integrity they go.

"Dont pander to the fans who knew what the good stuff was, lets release casual stuff!"

"Pandering too much to old fans and forget to make an orignial story."
You mean don't pander to the people who know what's good for the series?
I was mad hype for Assault Horizons. I played the demo and I felt betrayed.
It was a cheesy arcadey AAA shootemup with a standard "PMC RAGHEADS HURDUR!" story.
And that's saying something as the whole premise of AC is cheesy arcade flight.
Except it was in the bad way, not in the good way.
When I got AC:0 for christmas and toddled off into the playroom to shove it into my PS2 from start to finish I was in awe.

Coupled with the insane music and the breathtaking plot twists and ending concerning the dude in your picture I was hooked and AC:0 has made it onto my list of games I would recommend to people, which at the moment is not very long.

I got AC:6 as well and that was not as mind blowingly insane at the start, but it had its spectacular moments, I played the demo of AC:6 and it was good from the get go.


AC: AS (ASS Horizons because it was so bad) showed none of that.

I'm all for doing a good story to attract more people, but the AC:ASS game played itself, and it didn't feel like what you were doing was helping, and even when it was there wasn't much direction, you were just shoved into a square map, and told to clear up all the red dots.


Compare this to AC:0 Where you were shoved onto a square map and told to clear up all the red dots, but you could do it any way you wanted.

You could clear up just the Red priority targets, you could murder everything, or you could support 1 group and complete the mission that way.

There was just so much care and attention into how you cleared a square map of reds that you didn't know you were just pummelling reds because you got all sorts of "I'm so glad you came!" "WE NEED SUPPORT RIGHT NOW!"
and

"Thanks Galm 1!"

and "Wow this guy's a demon!"

AC:ASS was just ass. You were just pounding away because the game was supposed to take up your time and nothing else, no passion. It was purely shat out for new players and too keep them occupied for an hour or two to justify the £40 buying price.......


No, if anything they should be pandering to the old fans more than making it baby's first flight game. Because those old fans have been behind them up until the point that PA turned their back on the actual fans with ASS.


When I played AC:0 I felt like the Demon of the round table, because I'd earned it.

When I played AC:6 and was flying down the barrel of a gigantic rail gun I felt like I was the main character in an epic adventure.
When I played AC:ASSH I felt like I was playing "Red dot removal simulator: Now with only 2 buttons!!"

Look, AC 0 was/is my favorite game too.
And I don't like Assault Horizons as much as you do (don't?)

But I'd rather have an original story rather than a brand spanking new team of devs who were fans of the old series shoving references up the ass everywhere to the point where there is no room left for a story.

This hasn't happened with Ace Combat yet, and even though I can't exactly give a video game series immediately off the top of my head that has done this, I'm 100% certain it has happened before. I'm simply expressing my concern at the fact that this may happen to Ace Combat too.

I don't need the game to shove obscure references everywhere like "HEY! LOOK AT THAT GUY'S PLANE! HIS RIGHT WING IS RED, DOESN'T THAT REMIND YOU OF SOMEONE? HARHARHAR"
Or "OH MAN, THIS GUY FLIES LIKE A DEMON AYE? GOLLY GEE, I WONDER WHO THAT COULD POSSIBLY BE!"

A few nods to the old fans here and there'd be fine. But I wouldn't want any more than that.
