Well I thought it was a bit of a let down. There was nothing interesting about the combat.

It's basically just left 4 dead with a different skin, and that wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing if it was done better. I can't put my finger on it, but it was just lacking in fun.

woah! That is a super nice cockpit.

Being a french plane, which pylons can I attach cheese to? It sounds like an ineffective weapon, but the enough cheese dropped onto the enemy and they will get type 2 diabetes and dementia.....:P

Pretty standard pricing if you look at the niche flight sim community. Just about every FSX add-on is $49.99 regardless of quality or content. It's the default price and often coupled with harsh DRM.

With DCS you can at least rest assured that the price will come down relatively quickly and that there will be regular sales (many FSX add-ons never go on sale or only once per year around Thanksgiving).

Generally speaking I wish they would make a lot more progress on DCS. Weren't we supposed to get a full-fledged WW2 theater of operations? The Mustang and BF-109/Fw-190 are nice but they really need to work on giving it all more purpose and a context.
Same for the modern jets, of course. Would be awesome to have e.g. a Persian gulf theater with carrier ops, fixed base ops from bases in Turkey and all that good realistic stuff...
Also, where are the real crowd favs like the entire F-xx series... or at least F-14 all the way to F-20? F-22 and F-35 are probably way too classified to create an accurate DCS-worthy model but everything between the Tomcat and the Tigershark should be doable, no?

Oh well. The waiting game continues...

That's all actually on the near horizon - between now and end of 2016 everything you have mentioned will be out - except the F-22, F-35 of course (classified).

The Eurofighter is also not far off - within the next 6 months I believe.

Hehe... people said the same thing back in 2013 with "just wait until the end of 2014" and so on. The F-18 was supposed to be "close" and "soon" a long time ago but is still nowhere to be seen. I know it's external teams making the planes (and other content) but none of them seem to be very good at actually getting stuff done in a timely fashion.

The trainer jets are nice I guess but c'mon what everyone really wants is the planes jdreyer mentioned like the F-16, F-18, maybe even a non-FC F-15 (as long as the F-22 is still classified), and then F-117 and B2 could be interesting as well but I'm not sure how classified those are.

It's all just such a waste of potential... with just one really interesting dynamic ops theater (e.g. Persian Gulf, Chinese/Korean Sea) and at least one popular jet (with trademark DCS depth) on either side, e.g. F-18 vs. Su-27, this sim would probably be much, much more popular... mo'popularity => mo'money => mo'staff => mo'releases in a timely fashion => profit$$$ and happy devs & players.

For sure, it's been carrying on for a long long time, and I've lost hope many times along the way. But I honestly believe 2016 will be a big year!

$50 for a map, flight sims are niche markets but that's too rich for my blood.

Now if it had destruction modeling and you could drop bombs on Las Vegas that would be fun.

It seems like a lot, but you have to consider that a map in DCS is not like a map in say an FPS. It's more like a whole expansion pack.

Anyone know if they used snap map to create the actual single player campaign? That will probably be a good indicator of capabilities of snap map.

Is it called Law Breakers because it infringes on copy right of Unreal Tournament and Overwatch?

Looks like a high quality game, but completely boring.

This looks great. The atmosphere is just right. It doesn't look frustrating like some of the previous games.

Science: How to Slice Steak.

I hope they do Science: How to Slice Tofu, for all of those vegetarians out there.

They probably won't because no matter which way you slice tofu it won't give you cancer like red meat does

It also doesn't matter if you under cook it, because tofu doesn't contain any parasites such as tape worm which are waaaaaaaay more common that anyone would ever admit. Especially the kind that lay golf ball style egg sacks in your brain.

hmmm how come this looks worse than the alpha? The animations look worse and the transition between fast and slow is really rigid now.

Is gearbox producing this one? lol

I hope someone punches this cocaine fiend in the dick.

If this asshat can't tell the difference between the E3 aliens colonial marines, and turd aliens colonial marines that they released, then he needs to stop making games.

The lighting on the levels is terrible.
The animations are awful.
The sound fx don't suit the actions.
The the 3d models are very basic.
The GUI looks really cheap and nasty.
The voice acting LOL wtf bbq.
The Gameplay looks meh.
Over all very childish. (I probably would have loved this when I was 10 or 12).
The music wasn't bad though
