Microsoft Flight

It looks like Microsoft Flight Simulator isn't quite dead after all. Although it looks like they are dropping "simulator" from the title. "Microsoft Flight" along with a return of Age of Empires (WIN!) will be showcased at Gamescom.

I'm glad to see Microsoft hasn't dropped the idea of making flight sims completely.

If it turns out to be anything good, I'll be interested. But it does look like it might be console-oriented.:puke:If it is I'll stick with FSX. Now that I think about it, FSX ought to run real well on a rig with specs to run DCS:WH.:thumbup:

FSX is broken. I know: I have messed with it for years with hundreds of dollars of add-ons. It also does not properly leverage multi cores nor the GPU resulting in hideous FPS.

I'll reserve my judgement for later... It could be awesome, it could blow.

I'm really confused because they shut down their game studio... So all I can think of are:

 

A) It's being outsourced, which would suck.

B) It's for the 360... which would suck even more.

 

Either way, I hope they stick with it being a sim... going the arcade route would just fail so hard.

You have answered your own question. How possibly could it be a sim if it's for 360 as well ? While they could in theory make a clickable 3D cockpit for 360, I wonder who in 360 community has the willpower to learn it ? :rolleyes: And with the current trend of dumbing down all that still possibly can be dumbed down, I'm not holding my breath for this.

...well someone has to move the mud!!!

I think he means that AMD/Intel have reached the pinnacle of compute power which is far from true. The biggest hurdle is going to be getting past the 1.5 nm die size on to something smaller (a picometer).

Well I can't blame them for wanting to change things up a little bit. I only hope they keep the game a sim, but make it more enjoyable/accessible for everyone else.

 

I think as long as they don't try to advertise it like this ad again... nor try to make the game like this everything will be fine. :megalol:
