Oh here we go again. I'm one of these "CODfags" and I despise AH, so let's stop throwing everyone in the same basket, okay? :V



Lol, I don't mind COD, its just so annoying that a great franchise has to be sacrificed in order to please the shoot-aholics

Eh, I've said it many times, might as well restate my theory that the reason why Strangereal was created was because it allowed the story writers to write practically anything they wanted and it would work. As said Evil Romanians is one of those things that while its equivalent would work in Strangereal, it just doesn't work for proper storytelling when it's our world. We know Romanians not only won't, but can't do anything like they did in JA, making the storyline so unbelievable that you feel completely disconnected when you play the game. AH was an attempt to cash in on the latest "modern-era cold war turned hot" fantasy that's plaguing game storylines lately and I personally couldn't find a single thing about the story that interested me.

You can hire the best military fiction writer in the world, but you'd never have the same kind of freedom to make any story as you can with Strangereal. Never did I think a flight game would keep me interested for its story but Ace Combat (pre-JA) sure did. Damn shame they lost sight of that.

Ah... Ace Combat Skies... long time no post.

Shame, really. I have returned my PS3, and my PSP is outdated and retired. My era of playing AC has ended :(

But anyways, --

I would have prefered console quality graphics for the PSP AC games.. it wouldve made it more fun, but the processor in the PSP just can't handle it...



on a side note, anyone here play GOF2? or Metalstorm on iOS? I use my iPhone to play air combat games now... *sigh :(

Send me a Game Center request @ Garuda168 if you want to.
