Review: Strike Vector

Flying is great. Fighting while flying is pretty great, too, but for some reason, dogfighting in good ol' atmosphere hasn't caught on as quickly as dogfighting in space. Despite the resurgence of space games brought on by the rise of crowdf...

Review: World of Warplanes

Free-to-play is still a bad word these days with a lot of gamers. But it doesn't have to be. Titles like Path of Exile have shown that providing a model where most of the content is free, but the cosmetic upgrades are paid, can facilit...

Flight combat game Strike Vector coming in 2014

You have my attention, Strike Vector. This multiplayer-centric air combat game jumps between first- and third-person flying, all while offering some high intensity action. It looks absolutely insane, and after a successful six week Steam G...

God Factory: Wingmen is about arcade dogfights in space

Dogfighting games are somewhat of a rarity these days and we are definitely overdue for another one. God Factory: Wingmen is an arcade-style space combat title that scratches a specific itch I've had ever since&nbs...

Kickstart this project unless you hate space combat games

Yep, another Kickstarter. I know, we also got tired of them and that was well before Double Fine Adventure changed the game. As a result, I completely glossed over a few press releases for Starlight Inception, which may have been a mistake...

Microsoft Flight appears on Steam with a DLC bundle

I wouldn't have necessarily expected a game like Microsoft Flight to show up on Steam, but such an arrival does put the free-to-play flight sim in front of a bunch of new gamers, so you can't really argue with those results. There's also a ...

Review: Birds of Steel

Combat flight simulators, like real-time strategy games, are a resilient breed which has always struggled to find its place on consoles. A mouse and keyboard control scheme is almost always preferred over a gamepad when it comes to fast-pac...
