Microsoft Flight is finally out today and it's free! photo



It seems like everything is jumping on the success free-to-play is bringing these days, and Microsoft's line of flight simulator titles is the next franchise to test the waters. Out today is Microsoft Flight and, as was promised, it's entirely free to download right now on the official game website. Now all Microsoft needs to do is have a free-to-play model that is effective, and the trickiest part of that is the pricing of the premium content.

As of right now, if you want to buy a plane you can get them in two models: the plane as a "basic model" with only exterior views for $7.99 or as "deluxe model" with both cockpit and exterior views for $14.99. Also available right now is "Hawaiian Adventure Pack" which lets you fly the entirety of Hawaii and includes new challenges, over 20 new missions and a deluxe plane for $19.99. The pricing seems about right, but maybe that's because I'm such a huge fan of the simulators. What do you guys think?

Review: Microsoft Flight

Though I do desperately hope to one day see a full-on resurgence of aerial combat games, I've never been a die-hard fan of flight sims. I wholeheartedly respect the people who make them and the ensuing audience that appreciat...more

Though "simulator" is nowhere to be found in the name, Microsoft Flight -- due out this spring as a free-to-play PC game -- is still very much what it sounds like. Accommodating new players seems to be a focal point, especial...more

Review in Progress: Firefall

Firefall is a game that has seemed to get a lot of press over the past few years, often for the wrong reasons. Whether it's word of troubled staff, protests, or delays, most Firefall news isn't good news. But alas, as we...more

Namco's two-on-two fighter Rise of Incarnates enters open beta

Rise of Incarnates is that Bandai Namco fighting game that's supposed to be like the Gundam Vs. series but sadly, unfortunately, without any Gundams. If Steven hadn't previewed it, I likely wouldn't be aware it exists, but I ...more
