Activision Publishing, Inc. announced today that Apache: Air Assault will be released this fall for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
i smell budget game but admittedly i am kinda interested in this.
Gaijin is a small studio but they made some very impressive titles, IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey was a great game, it was great graphically and is perhaps the most realistic dog fight game on the market. The casual settings were also great to.
I smell a PSN/XBLA title that's coming on disc for $60.
looks at title activision ya know i think ill PASS on this sounds awesome but ya know it involves kotick
Why pass on their new IP's, especially when they are developed externally? If anything, pass on Call of Duty, Guitar Hero, etc but by passing on newer titles, IP's, etc you are sending only one message. More Call of Duty and Guitar Hero, less new stuff.
id consider it but im not a fan of choppers too fiddly with feathering and dealing with 2 differetn thrust systems
Why punish the devs because of one man? That would be like punishing America because of Obama, whoops. Anyway, I think it's stupid of Activision deniers to deny money to devs, I mean Bobby K is GOING to make money with or without you, it's a given, but those devs are not. What if you worked at a McDonald's and because people hated your boss/manager they didn't come to your location and thus that would cause layoffs(you being one of them), thus causing the place to either move or close, that boss everyone hated will still be around making money at another location, but you and your coworkers will have to look for money supplies elsewhere. Kotick - Will ALWAYS be rich. Devs Under Activision - Depends on the gamers. Excuse my analogy as it's probably a stupid one. lol
Actually, more like punishing America coz of Bush
FUCK YOU Activision!
I don't know Nuclear Strike and Thunder Strike on PS1 were pretty badass games for anyone that remembers. As long as it's deeper than what I can get from hopping in a helicopter in Just Cause and blowing some stuff up.....I'm listening
then again those titles were from EA , not activision , so meh pass
damn i miss those games
There has been a drought on good flying games recently...
Yes and no, 2009 was pretty good for flight sims, only one or two were actually any good though (IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey and H.AW.X. IMO).
He did say "good" flying games, you know?
Il-2 was reviewed pretty well, in the 80s on MetaCritic IIRC, not sure about H.A.W.X. but some publications did give it some good reviews. Also note the "IMO" at the end of my post. Out of curiosity Godmars, have you played any of those games? The demos at the very least?
Easy choice. What else was there ? I liked Hawx and can't for Hawx2. If IL-2 is any good, I might get that - I would like modern jets, though (that was the only reason I didn't buy it so far - demo played great). I remember and Apache flight simulator game I played on the Amiga in the 80s. I loved that game. Great something like that comes back.
...and nobody cares!
I can play Bad Company 2
omg get to the choppa!!!!
Activision, that means they are going to charge $60 with weekly $15 map packs? No thanks, Ill pass
So i don't need to get an 11 killstreak =D
dont care about kotick ..but do care about this game chicago agreed tru were from EA, but want some helicopter combat.
Godamit why do Activision have to make this? I'm well up for some helicopter combat but unless I can buy this second hand, i'll be damned if i'll be buying it.
About damn time. I been waiting for a good chopper battle sim for years. Well at least i hope its a sim.
But controls on a console are going to be key! They need to avoid the Battlefield Bad Company controls and make the controlling more accessible to the massess otherwise this game will tank.
