E3: Ace Combat: Assault Horizon turns men into girls

In 1986 G.I. Joe released the Tomahawk, a giant two-propellor helicopter.  It allowed clumsy uncoordinated children to stand in place and bomb their friends while lazily standing in place.  Ace Combat: Assault Horizon totally reminds me of this formative time in my life.  When you get sick of flying planes you can jump into an Apache and troll the villagers. 

If you haven't checked out Hamza's extensive preview of the game definitely go do that.  The controls are completely different and the cinematic delivery really comes close to a Hollywood dogfight.

As a sidenote, the game couldn't have been put in a more awkward location on the floor.  Nothing gets me into the Top Gun mood like a fake family booty-shaking at Ikea.
