The name's gonna stick.

P.S.: What do you make of the logo? I love it


Fair point, should have called it Balls of Steel...

You could call it Frank and I'd buy it, so I'm a poor test case anyway..

Truth is, I can't wait for it

EDIT.. Surley they'll need an Open Beta to test the MMO properly..hint,hint

This is kn'awesome news! 100 planes! I will see you guys on this the day it releases.

PS i hate waiting................still looking for sim games on 360 most nights...
there is still a strong realistic group going strong during my timezone but I just cant get into it for some reason.

Lets just pray that the scoring and hit detection is improved a bit to not drive away the new players so fast this time around.

Brilliant news. Europe and Pacific theatre and 100 planes? Better than anything could have expected. I can't wait for this to arrive.
Ruhr valley means only one thing to me, Dambuster raid in Lanc. If so then next years PS3 gaming is sorted for me!
