We are preparing for AC:I's release.
We will play with our friends here,
here, and here.
From what we can tell, the game plays nothing like Assault Horizon,
which means we can play with complete freedom, and no on-rails gameplay.
I heard a rumor from Steiner that the game was F2P.
That can't possibly be true, though.
Steiner was right, it is F2P.
Namco has officially announced it.
Everyone who bought a 360 for Ace Combat 6, get out now.
What the hell are they thinking?
Making a F2P game like we're on fucking Facebook.
And I can't even get it on a disc now.
I would've ordered a collector's edition.
This is Ace Combat, not Candy Crush Saga!
This is a good series they're fucking with!
Nickel and dimeing the core fanbase!
Sir, people weren't buying enough copies of the last 2 games.
That's because AC:AH sucked, and AC6 was 360 exclusive!
Sir, they want to expand beyond the core fanbase.
They tried that with AH, and we got fucking DFM!
Now we get F2P!
just to appeal to casuals.
Now you can fly a few missions a day at most,
then pay or wait 'till your virtual fuel regenerates!
You've got to be fucking kidding me!
They could've at least let you buy unlimited fuel!
That would've been worth paying for.
Not to mention that they've removed TDM, so I can't even dogfight with Stalin!
Now we have to pay a micropayment fortune,
just to play the game as much as we normally would.
This could've been Ace Combat 7.
But instead we get this...
A fucking F2P Pay-2-Grind microtransaction shitfest!
Just designed to suck all our money out of our wallets!
What do they think?
Do they think this will actually grow the fanbase?
This could kill the series forever!
It's okay, we'll get AC7 eventually.
I suppose if the gameplay is normal,
it'll at least be a fun game to play.
We'll pay our $60 in micropayments,
and hope Namco makes enough money to fund a proper sequel.
We may yet get a proper AC7.
Damn you Namco.
