Ace Combat’s QTE: Grip A Fist!

Ace Combat’s QTE: Grip A Fist!

A lot of quick-time events can often be tedious interruptions that lead to failure — tap a button too slowly and your sword may go through a wall instead of a boss; miss a button and your character might fail to revive itself. As a refreshing change, Ace Combat: Assault Horizon will see you using QTEs for less perilous tasks… such as gripping a fist.

We wonder what will happen if you fail the QTE, though… Does the fist not get gripped? It’s a question for us all to ponder about.

    i’d imagine you’d misplace the fist-pump – uppercutting yourself in the jaw instead.

    Also, the music… my god it’s just PERFECT!

    If only there was a button to hold a boom box above your head…

  • Perhaps if you get it wrong then you “accidentally” give them the finger, causing the mob to turn against you.

  • That was the very last remaining breath of barely existant determination to buy this game if I saw it in a bargain bin completely dissipate.

  • I was always dozing through the cut scenes, but managed to grab the controller and hit Y for each of the QTEs in the game. I wondered if pressing the button actually did anything since all it did was move the camera to look at something (like Gears of War), except for the final fist pump.
