Ace Combat 7 in VR is phenomenal (if you have the stomach for it)

I’m absolutely terrified of flying in real life. Even just stepping onto a passenger plane is an ordeal for me so the thought of piloting a jet-propelled fighter plane in real life? Well lets just say I’d have to be wearing the brown flight suit that day…Flying in virtual reality however is a different story. The moment the wheels of my F/A-18F first left the deck of the Aircraft carrier in Ace Combat 7 and the plane took to the skies, I whooped out loud. I grit my teeth and held my breath during my first VR dog-fight. The chase…

Earth Defense Force is a wonderfully scrappy series with a surprisingly dark heart

This piece contains spoilers for several Earth Defense Force games. Earth Defense Force is what you get when you turn Starship Troopers into a series of budget video games. Each entry in the series chucks you into the titular EDF and pits you against hordes of giant insects and other strange aliens. The graphics tend to be sub-par, the art style’s pretty basic, and there’s nearly always bad voice acting and cheesy writing too. So what’s the attraction? It’s about priorities. All of the budget and attention – all the love – goes into the things the developer really cares…

Ace Combat 7: a classic series evolves with stunning visuals

Ace Combat 7 is a superb sequel to a classic franchise that succeeds because it embraces new technology, but respects its past – and doesn’t try to evolve the series into something it was never meant to be. There are all-new visuals, missions and game modes, but its connection to the past remains fundamental to its success. It’s a proper sequel to the brilliant Ace Combat 5 (a decent port of which is bundled with PS4 pre-orders – and it runs at 4K60 on Pro), with gameplay evolved from AC4 and AC5. However, the fundamental technology has changed: similar to…
