Full Ace: Worth Making A Racquet Over?

By Kieron Gillen on April 9th, 2010 at 3:40 pm.

The crowd grew silent, anticipating the imminent start of the on-grass hot-man-on-man action fuck championship final.

Well, I dunno. But it’s certainly worth doing a news post over. Joining the brave people who made a serious announcement on April 1st was Galactic Gaming Guild announcing their Full Ace Tennis was finally available to buy for fifteen (count ‘em!) Euros. If only there was a way to see whether the game was appealing to you before playing? Of course, in the days before the DEB we’d have all just pirated the full version before paying up if it took our fancy. However, in this brave new future of Secure Profitable Internet, Galactic Gaming Guild have offered a portion of their game to play to work as a kind of pirated-game surrogate. You can download it from here, and allows you to play – er – Tennis. Just less Tennis than the full game. Some Beta footage from last year follows, as it’s all I could find to link…

    I suppose now we can’t just thieve from the internet they need to make more of an effort to court us into buying a game.

    After all, too much tennis is bad for you. We all know that.

    How does this one compare to Tennis Elbow?

    I wonder what role ball boys play in Uncle Kerion’s “alternate-reality literal image tag” world?

    Good Lord those sound effects are atrocious. It’s a tennis game not fucking woodworking.

    FAULT!

    I don’t see how Tennis could work without motion controls these days. Damn you Nintendo for raising my expectations!

    @terry

    As said in the article, the video shown is very old, and indeed features terrible audio (especially ball strokes). But it is different in current versions.

    Although.. those controls..
