I miss them. Every friday there used to be a glimpse into the future. Either it was a patch or an upcoming release. Please reintroduce that tradition http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif

Also I miss Olegs postings. Could somebody please try to convince him that he is severely missed. There are a lot of us that miss his saying on things.

I'll second that. I miss some kind of info about patch/BoB/any WiP too.

No updates because I doubt BOB will be a goer?

Too many other BOB games being released and FAILING! ... and what's the future of PC games in general? ... NONE! all the 8 year olds have consoles, don't they ... and nobody writes games just for muture aged kids .. do they! This is strange because muture aged kids have a ****E-LOAD more money than the snot-filled, who probably haven't even seen the "Battle of Britain" movie with it's great musical score (that addicted me as a 8 year old) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

To survive, I believe classic games like this will have to sell for $500+, aimed at a smaller, more mature audience. I'd pay $500 to get a state of the BOB airsim with all planes flyable, expertly modelled planes, terrain and objects and Common sense AI. I suspect most IL-2 users would also.

Nah! I disagree with you here.
When my kids (7 & 12) watch me haggling with my IL2, they want to take my stick away and do the same. They've played all the arcade type games but this is a challenge for them, and this is where it counts. They'll play the other games once, but hell's they never let go of this game. It's just a matter of introducing the youngsters to these games = Advertising.

Ok, then hire out that classic movie "Battle of Britain" so they can get some historical background and exposed to that excellent musical score.

Not all kids are lucky as yours. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif
