NAVTEQ to Enhance Microsoft 'Flight Simulator X'

Microsoft is using data from NAVTEQ to create much of the world in "Flight Simulator X". NAVTEQ data such as road network information, ferry landings, railroads, detailed water information (e.g. oceans, rivers, lakes, harbors, etc.), parks, golf courses, and recreational areas, enhances the "Flight Simulator X" user experience.

For those unfamiliar with NAVTEQ, look at the copyright on Google Earth, Mapquest, Yahoo Maps or your car navigation system. NAVTEQ is the supplier and foundation of all of these types of products.

Expected to be available this holiday season, "Flight Simulator X" is the culmination of nearly 25 years of the landmark "Flight Simulator" franchise and the most significant addition to date. The 10th edition will immerse players in an amazingly detailed, realistic world and offer a host of new gaming experiences including the addition of dozens of new aircraft and new mission-based gameplay. Additionally, "Flight Simulator X" provides a rich, connected world of online interaction where users can choose who they want to be, from air-traffic controller to pilot or co-pilot, and interact with other aviators from around the globe by chatting in real-time using a headset.

Hauntii (PC) Review | VGChartz

VGChartz's Mark Nielsen: "As debut indie games go, Hauntii is among the best you’ll find, and it's one that shares elements with such critical darlings as Super Mario Odyssey and the Ori titles. Those would be big shoes for anyone to fill, but Hauntii dives right into the task while firing on all cylinders, from the novelty of its gameplay, to the wide array of emotions found in its story and music, and while it might not be able to compete with the very best when it comes to pure polish, the high points of the experience can match even those gaming giants."

Helldivers 2 studio hires new CEO, but Pilestedt isn’t going anywhere

Pilestedt writes: "Hey everyone,

Big update, I've decided to hire @ShamsJorjani as the new CEO of @ArrowheadGS ! We go way back and I wouldn't trust the business in any other hands than his. (...and he comes with an impressive resume and love for games)

But what about me and my involvement in @Helldivers2 ? Well, I'm glad you asked! I am taking the role of Chief Creative Officer, which means I will spend MORE time with the team and 100% of my focus on the games and community!"

Purple, save your money on COD. I'm sure concord will turn out well. Could always just get the new COD on gamepass.

I only have a laptop, (which is an M2pro Mac) and ps5, so would have to stream cod with gamepass ultimate.
or, I could also just buy it off ebay half price, like I normally do, but yeh, fancy a change.

Good multiplayer games that have content updates every so often, or a lot of content to begin with don't need sequels every year, ones that have all that are good for a few years to keep you playing.
