Was reading a gaming magazine (sorry, realized I was running late, panicked and ran off without recording details http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif), and saw a brief thing about a sim coming out around the same time as PF... called Midway..?

Anybody heard this, or is it old news?

This is Midway:Battle of the Pacific. It's not a flight sim, although you can fly about in zeros and what not. It's a naval sim.

It's supposed to kick backside, and the graphics look fairly sweet last time I checked it out. Due out later in the year, probably end of the summer, or autumn.

whit ye looking at, ya big jessie?!?!

It's been advertised for quite a while now. Should be quite interesting! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

It's not a "Sim", ist's a Realtime-Strategy- and Tactics-"Game" http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/10.gif

I read a review on it and they said that it will be good but won't be as good as IL2 PF. Will try to find the review and post it.

Notice anything familiar about aircraft models and engine noises? http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Akella's PT Boats: Knights of the Sea, I'd say worth checking out!

Akella's PT game looks pretty sweet so far.

It looks to be exclusively Baltic and Black Sea at first, but they're making noises about expansion possibilities. I'm a big fan of the Novorssisk campaign, land sea and air. I hope we get a scenario for when Soviet PTs landed paratroop units on the docks :-)

Edit: I just looked at the new screenshots. Maybe they'll offer Oleg their sky and cloud techniques, that's just gorgeous.
