Is anyone following this? I've gone away from the flight arcade games since the last few games in this genre have been a little uninspiring...

But this looks awesome!

Looks awesome, and looks like they've made a lot of improvements since Fires of Liberation. And it seems it takes place in the real world (Miami is mentioned in the last trailer).

Definitely looking forward to it.

Although watching these makes me yearn to see what a modern X-Wing or Tie-Fighter could be.

I read the Eurogamer preview article and they said the over-the-shoulder aiming view was definitely inspired by Gears of War.

I loved the old school X-Wing. Never actually got Tie Fighter which I heard was even better.

But if you're talking old school, the king of the space fighters was Freespace and Freespace 2.

Yeah, I just want to strafe a Star Destroyer in my X-Wing. Man, I would love a space shooter like that. A remake of X-Wing or Tie Fighter or even a modern Freespace or Wing Commander where you can buzz around large spaceships or stations.

**sigh** Maybe we'll get something like that someday.

Just jizzed in my pants.

Big fan of the Ace Combat series. Felt a little let down with 6, hoping this one is better. Not sure I like the oil effects all over the camera - trying to make it look like blood I suppose.

X-wing was great; TIE Fighter was BETTER. Used to play competitive X-Wing vs. TIE Fighter which was a phenomenal online experience. X-Wing Alliance brought great graphics and other stuff, too. Nothing beat seeing an ISD II shimmer in the light of a red dwarf star. Amazing. Yes. They need this. NOW.

It was way to easy to kill a star destroyer in Xwing, as they only really shot randomly.

Now, in Tie Fighter it was a different story as they shot advanced missiles at you if you even targeted them. Xwing Alliance was even harder.

I'm looking forward to this. The story behind the last campaign was about the most absurd and retarded thing ever but the gameplay was a blast.

That keeps looking better and better to me. Really looking forward to it.

Well, unless I see footage where someone exclaims "go dance with the angels!" as an insult.

Have they mentioned if there will be another flight stick with this one? I thought about picking up the last Ace Combat recently and wanted to get the flight stick as well, but it seems nearly impossible to find.

It comes out the same day as Forza 4???

as the flight guys tend to be the same as the racer guys, that's some mighty competition for sales.

both perfect for my bday (Oct 10)...

Ace Combat has come a long way! The cinematic feel is incredible.

lol yeah for me it's just bf3 and ace combat. I may end up canceling my pre-order if BF3's beta comes out two weeks early (when Ace Combat comes out). Hmm...

I'm not loving this. I'm sure it will be the usual paint the targets and push the fire button gameplay. Very tedious after a while.
