[QUOTE] The new Ace Combat announced for PSP seems nice so far: http://www.the-magicbox.com/1002/game100226c.shtml [/QUOTE] I didn't even know Magic Box was still around... That site used to be good, but I've moved on to different sources for my gaming intel long ago. I don't know what to think about Joint Assault. The reason is because I come from a military background--I was the child of a US Air Force member and I work for the Military Industrial Complex (that's all you'll get out of me! heh heh). I liked the "alternate reality" Earth of the other AC games because you don't have to worry about how different countries (fake ones, BTW) have certain aircraft (like how the Russia-stand ins have F-16s, F-22s, and B-52s or how the good guys have MiGs and SU-33s in addition to NATO aircraft). In the JA trailer, there was a clip of a B-52 getting shot down. Because the game is set in a "real world" environment, I interpret it as someone shooting down a USAF plane (since they're the only one in our real world who uses the plane). I'm not against this of course, but there would have to be some good explanation that will allow me to suspend my disbelief. This is also why I'm a little annoyed at Modern Warfare 2's multiplayer--how the hell do insurgents get access to Harriers, AC-130s, and Predator's? Sure, I know it's multiplayer and doesn't really happen in the single player campaign, but having been around military most of my life, it is a little annoying. I haven't tried the PSP Ace Combat games yet...I might do so one of these days. Also, I recently finished the campaigns in both AC4 and AC5...it was good to actually see how the series has evolved over time. Especially liked AC5...deeper more engaging story and good music, though I was annoyed at some of the missions. I'd like to try Zero, but I think I'll give the genre a break while I play other games.
