Ever since the release of Assault Horizon, there is an ongoing debate among pilots of ACE Air Force: What an ACE Combat game should look like? Individuals with different opinions clash against each other, even sometimes resort in extreme prejudice. So what an ACE Combat game should look like? Everyone has a lot to express, I'm no exception. So here I am to describe an "ideal" ACE Combat game from my perspective.
Since Namco's another fantastic video game franchise "Time Crisis" has two different sub-universes: Mainstream "Time Crisis" and spin-off "Crisis Zone", ACE Combat can also be divided into two sub-universes. "Canon" games take place in Strangereal Continuity, while other games take place in Earth Continuity. Two categories of games ha…

When Sonic the Hedgehog reached its anniversary of 20 years, SEGA Cooperation gave out a huge present to the world——Sonic Generations, as a summarization of what the franchise had achieved as well as a prospect into future.

Every time I play ACE Combat, I feel that I'm processing a harem, every military hardware is a beautiful girl to me. That's what we call "the winner of life". So if every fighter transforms into a girl, or more precisely, a bishoujo, what will they look like? I'm searching references from my favorite Japanese cartoonists' drawings, maybe later I'll come up with my own opinions.
So, mainstream superfighters (fictional aircraft) for starters.
Since she is the very first superfighter in entire franchise, I always consider a traditional Japanese female, namely a Nadeshiko Yamato, is the best candicate for her “Moe/Bishoujo Anthropomorphism”. Therefore I choose Madoka Koumoto  from visual novel (galgame) "Hoshizora e Kakaru Hashi (lit. Bridge …
