Why are they still using AA batteries? Ugh.
Yeah, I was stunned by that decision. I really shouldn't have been I guess, considering it's MS

Haven't played any of the Bioshocks (the original sent my last video card into overdrive for some reason) but I suppose I should get around to it now

Apples and oranges. DCS is the MOST accurate sim you will find. WoWP and War Thunder while fun, are basically arcade games. You will need some kind of joystick as a minimum to fly some of the planes in DCS. The basic program contains one (free) plane that you can fly but its a russian Su-25 which features russian avionics and is a nightmare to learn.

Ive got the A-10C, P51 and Uh-1h modules and Im happy with all of them. The A-10 is the easiest plane to takeoff in, manouver, fly and land but it features a shitload of navigation and modern weapon systems that Ive yet to explore fully.

The P51 is a joy to fly because its such a simple WWII design, but paradoxically its much harder to master even simple manouvers with this plane because you are really flying by the seat of your pants.

The most fun Im having is with the UH-1H module, probably the best helicopter sim Ive ever tried. The training tutorials are straightforward, the campaign is brilliant and the flight model is easily the most accurate Ive seen. (A few real life Huey pilots have commented on the accuracy on the forums). Its also the hardest aircraft to fly because well, flying helicopters is something thats simply not that intuitive. Fixed wing aeroplanes 'want' to fly, helicopters 'want' to crash and burn...

Thanks for all the info dude

well into the 90s they were making good flight sims.
I got caught up in the onslaught of first person shooters and never really looked back. Now that I'm older I'm looking down other avenues.
I'm afraid I wouldn't be able to play any of the older sims now, because of my tendency to be a graphics whore.

The last time I really loved a game that had anything to do with flight was while playing Freespace 2

DCS: World is where its at and its modules obviously.
I've just been getting back into flight sims (last one I played - and loved - was 1990's Red Baron).

I have tried both World of Warplanes as well as War Thunder, and I just checked out the site for DCS: World since you mentioned it.
So essentially you get the base program then can install modules, new and old, into that program?

I'm pretty impressed by some of the features of WoWP, but I'm open to trying another sim.

For a split second, while still half asleep, I thought Bliz had bought it's way out of Activision...THAT would have been (good) news!
Yep, I initiated the same setup for disappointment

The fact that they mention HDR is a bad sign in itself.

Looking for a new game that will be as good as RBR? I'll put my money on never happening

At this point, Skyrim has GOT to be very close to the biggest success story in video game history.

Anyone tried Monaco?

The FOV on Sleeping Dogs is pretty narrow. Any idea if there's a tweak/fix for it?

I was able to play a little last night and it really is packed with Hong Kong atmosphere. That goes a long way for me, too

Everything seems on point so far, including most of the voice acting. I really haven't played much yet, but I think I'll like it!

650k for a multiplayer-only game with no prototype shown is tough to swallow.
This is the biggest red flag for me.

They have car models to show off, which amounts to essentially nothing. Dozens of custom cars are released for GTA4 by the community daily, and that's just a hobby.
Honestly, just showing art in general for these kickstarters doesn't really cut it

I'd love to see a game in the same stride as i76

Really? I've found some pretty badass fast rides around the islands in JC2.

But the handling does need a rework. vehicles in JC2 tend to slide around a lot for no reason

I'd grab Undying because I remember it as one of the best games I've ever played, but I fear it hasn't aged well...
