Did you guys ever play that Chris Roberts game based around F-16s? Strike Commander it hink it was called - that was awesome. Was going through a super large fighter plane phase back then. Also really dug some of those Janes modern aircraft games, like the Israeli airforce game (that was again based around their F-16 airforce).

Regular flight sims never really appealed to me...

last one I played a decent amount of was FA 18 interceptor on an Amiga 500..
so yeah... not many flight sims in my history :)

Not sims but I played the fuck out of all the Ace Combat games before this gen and have high hopes for the coming PSVR version.

Strike Commander wasnt a sim as such - it was like Wing Commander but based in the real world

I loved Strike Commander. Mavericks and sidewinders was my mission config. Fuck i hated the landings though.

It makes me wonder how much of that will end up in the final game though. Sure it looks great, but there's a lot of tech demos out there that offer similar experiences. I dont mean specifically going down to a planet, but there IS tech demos out there that are pretty amazing in what they offer. Most games show this brilliant shit live then you never see anything even close. Look at No Man's Sky, what a fucking abortion.

Most of it will be, it is more a question of when it will be put into the main branch.

I expect the sand worm thing to pop up as part of a single player mission or two.. don't think it'll be a regular of the persistent universe on any old planet...
but yeah, I'd rather they spend less time on stuff like that and focus on their other goals like star marine and SQ42...

Still looked great though.

Who the hell has the Dune licenses. I would love a nice 3rd/1st person RPG set in the Dune Universe. Imagine what CDR could do with Dune O_o.

So much good lore here, why hasn't there been a Dune game in recent years. bastages.

Upgraded the LTI Terrapin to a Hull C in the sale for $5. I always wanted a Hull C, so i bought the Terrapin months ago for the LTI.

I really want to see PTU 3.0 sometime soon. I think we will be lucky to get 2.6 before xmas.
