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, especially given the price structure, but those serious about getting an experience which mimics real-life aviation shouldn't turn away. Both audiences, according to Microsoft, are being targeted.

Flight takes place on the Big Island of Hawaii and is a full Games for Windows Live title, complete with Achievements. CES 2012 attendees can play it next week; everyone else, sign up for the beta here.

Review: Microsoft Flight

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

So, Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies is happening

Based on the name alone, Counter-Strike Nexon: Zombies doesn't sound like a legitimate, officially-licensed game, but it is. Valve's okay with it! And, actually it's not too far-fetched when you recall that Nexon is responsib...more
