Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. Welcome aboard the most metal flight of your lives. Let’s do some sky crimes.
In 1938, with dreams of taking out one of Europe’s most prestigious air races, Ettore Bugatti—yes, the car guy—and Belgian engineer Louis de Monge got to work designing an aircraft like nothing the world had ever seen before.
I know that the awesomeness of Grand Theft Auto V's skilled daredevils is well established at this point. But when you see stunts this impressive, it certainly bears repeating:
Sure beats sitting behind a desk.
The Federal Aviation Administration has for years been the enemy of gamers, with its weird rules that electronic devices had to be shut down during take-off and landing, despite a complete lack of evidence they do anything of the sort.
Flight begins on a very sweet-hearted note—a little girl writes a letter to Santa Claus, saying she wants to see her mother for Christmas. She folds it into a paper airplane and flings her wish into the sky. It's your job to get that message all the way around the world.
Not content to merely dabble in the more pedestrian flying video game market, the once peripheral-centric Mad Catz lifts its ambitious eyes to the MMO skies with Combat Pilot, a title that combines realistic flight simulation with multiplayer military aviation. It's actually more exciting than it sounds.
Microsoft's rebirth of their hallowed Flight Simulator series, Microsoft Flight is finally coming out, over a year since we started seeing videos of it.
Those of you still owning joysticks and jackets with elbow patches on them, today is your lucky day, because Microsoft just brought the Flight Simulator series back from the dead.
Mad Catz just rolled out a new line of pro flight controllers for the type of flight sim fanatics who want to be able to tinker with fuel mix and mindfully watch for warning lights while pretending to fly.
