The idea of purchasing a video game online was foreign to most of us not that long ago. Just before eBay swarmed into our lives and reassured us that making purchases over the World Wide Web wasn’t only super convenient but also incredibly safe, we were forced to trek into video game stores and malls to pick up the latest flight simulator offerings.
Whilst this method had its charms...

When we’re playing video games –whether they’re on a humble console or an all-powerful PC – the whole point of what we’re doing is to escape from our everyday lives. Some people (mostly non-gamers) have come to assume that this means we’re all anti-social individuals who prefer the company of AI than any other real-life human. Obviously, we know this not to be true.
The reason I’ve fallen in love with fli...Read Full Post »

When Microsoft Flight Simulator was first released all of those years ago, flight fans and wannabe pilots all across the world were beside themselves with excitement. Although the game doesn’t hold up too well by today’s standards – in fact, it in fairly basic to say the least – at the time it was the height of virtual flight experiences and it opened the minds of PC gamers around the world in terms of what they could come to expect in the future.

It isn’t easy to find a flight simulator game that is perfect; in fact, most people would argue that the perfect game hasn’t yet been created. Some have come very, very close but as it stands, no title has received the virtual ‘10 out of 10’ score from the flight simulator community.

Everyone who is in the market to buy a new flight simulator game should always consider a few vital elements and factors during their search. Unlike a lot of common ‘shooter’ and other console games, the standard of detail built into a flight simulator by the game’s developers can literally be the difference between a fantastic title and a horrible, sub-standard release.
Knowing exactly what to look for is a brilliant first step, however, unless you’...Read Full Post »

The most common thing that people look for when they’re choosing a video game – and more specifically, a flight simulator – is the level of realism that is presented to them. The further technology evolves the more people are coming to expect from their entertainment mediums and flight simulators are absolutely no exception.
The encouraging thing about all of this, as far as plane simulator game fans are concerned at least, is tha...Read Full Post »
