Spoken like a true gamer.

Accepted Sir!

BTW - what are the other current new FPS releases? Its been a while since a good release.

Had to play Max Payne2 all over again just to fill in that empty void.

Looks like I need to get some newer age POP game and give it a try.

Reviews say II is better.

It is a 40s war game. Mafia gang wars
Is this a FPS game on PC windows platform?

I've played CoD all the PC versions more than a couple of times. Want something equally good if not better.

For the fans of FSX, Microsoft announced the successor to it: Microsoft Flight

Indeed ! Was really disappointed that MS closed down their ACES-Studio last year. I hope add-ons from FSX (if not FS2004) are compatible with the new title, I've got a ton of that stuff I'm wondering if this "new" title is from Cascade-Game-Foundry, if it is, we can expect Train-Sim-2 too *Yipee* !

BlackAsta, I wouldn't call HAWX a "sim", its more an arcade game. The big disappointment with HAWX however was the use of the same 3D models for different versions of the same aircraft - a real turn-off for students of combat aircraft. That said, I'm not sure if HAWX 2 is better in this regard than its predecessor. For a sim, you're better off with a MS-FS title & add-ons from AvSim or PMDG.

P.S. - Anybody else think Noble-6 is the Master-Chief ?

Train sim is going on and off. So I dont think MS is concentrating on it much. There are more fans of flight sim than the train one.

I think MS flight will have an arcade mode too for non-flight heads to make take offs and landings simple for them.

Talking of flight games, am also looking forward to Pilotwings Resort 3D for Nintendo 3DS. Have enjoyed Pilotwings 64 pretty much!

Completed Call Of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and just got a copy of GTA IV and Battlefield Bad Company II for myself.

I felt CODMW was very small and I could complete the game in about 3-4 days. Next on list is Mafia II and Flight Simulator.

Oh yes, and I regularly play Counter Strike too

I have Train-Sim - getting back to it once in a while makes you discount all its faults. I still have trouble with the Orient-Express Honeymoon-couple mission Development for Train-Sim-2 ended with Microsoft's closure of their 'ACES Game Studio'. But then, the folks there went out & started 'Cascade Game Foundry' & there was renewed talk online that Train-Sim-2 was back on track. It'll be good if it does finally come out, be it from MS or CGF...

Flight-Sim is (was) a fantastic series, especially for aircraft lovers I have almost all versions of the game. One good thing with the FS series of games has been the availability of API, tools, & most importantly documentation, for 3rd party developers to enhance the games. Now, you can get add-ons like aircraft, airports, vehicles, terrain, & other what-nots to make your sim experience that much more real ! I just hope Flight follows in the footsteps of the FS series & MS, in the process of making it more "accessible", doesn't spoil it for aficionados...

Hey, anybody's got F1 2010 ? It was launched this week, here's a cool video...

I have been playing F1 2010 (PC) for the past week and i'm loving it. The graphics are really cool and car control is not too hard. You have to be really careful at your braking points (so much so, i keep pressing my down arrow so hard, i think it's going to give up on me one of these days !)

I have actually decided to get the logitech Momo racing wheel with paddle shifts to enhance the whole experience.
