    F*ck, it's christmas! And none have anything better than to get on the net and check these forums? **** even growing up hasn't seemed to improve our lives. I vote next christmas, we all pretent we actually have loved ones or something important enough to do to warrant not getting on here on Christmas day.

    I have loved ones, I'm just not on the bus to see them yet. Before I leave I figured I wish my other family merry Christmas.

    I didn't realize it had come out already. Been looking forward to this since I scraped my eyes out trying to play lo:mac

    Looks really cool, but that's a hell of an investment. The trackir is intense.

    TrackIR is the kind of device that completely spoils you. Imagine playing a dogfighting sim, like IL-2 (amazing sim), and being able to pan your view around at will without fidgeting with a POV hat. It amplifies the movement of your head, so you can keep an eye on the monitor even if your avatar is looking straight back. In a game without radar, it's a godsend for tracking enemies and staying situationally aware.

    It also works in Arma, but its usefulness is quite limited. It's nice for vehicles, or when you are sniping/camping and you want to glance around without readjusting your aim; but imagine if you are looking out for enemies, and your gun isn't on your screen when you spot one (TrackIR controls head movement, not body movement). It's more efficient to use mouselook.

    The next DCS module will be the A-10 Thunderbolt II. It is due out in Q4 2009. They already did the A-10 in LoMac, but this sim will be much more detailed and realistic. After that, they're doing the AH-64A Apache (not the Longbow, sadly).

    For the above I need:

    - TIME, where do I scrape away the time needed to dive into this sim?
    - New computer with (knowing LockOn's specs) Nasa hardware
    - New Hotas to replace my Suncom SFS Hotas and Track-IR.
    - Generous donations to buy the above

    What I dont need:

    - Girlfriend. :D

    Sigh, one of the few games that actually breathe 'quality'. Take an axample from this you ***** lazyass game developers.
