Been looking at purchasing the new DCS spitfire module
Not really a flight sim guy to many buttons i am a Armour guy i like to blow #%&*$# up.
But have always loved the spitfire and fancy shooting down some bosch

Well are any of you guys planning to purchase a new game/sim
And what are your gaming plans for 2017.

X-Plane 11 or DTG Flight Sim. I'll wait reviews on "final" versions to make my choice.

I MAY finally take the plunge and get Battle of Stalingrad. I'll get Dishonored 2 whenever that goes on sale. No rush.

Nothing for me really. Like PM im waiting for Dishonored 2 to go on sale at least 50% before I buy it.

The Division is on sale for another few hours. Its a fun game to play in a group. I might pick up a copy for a friend since I already own it.

I've got BoS and it's ok if you can look past all the company shenanigans. I kind of want some of their newer addons but im not sure I want to plop down that much cash for something that could to to hell in a handbasket as fast as their creative director can take a dump on it all.

Though they are building towards a pacific game which might actually make me buy something new from them unless they ruin it all like they probably will.

And we as its creators don't feel ready to hear your annoyed jabber about it.

On my list:
XP11
HTC Vive
JetSeat KW-908


er... that's it really. 2 hardware and 1 software. Maybe some games depending on what comes up on the Steam sales, and definitely some VR games after I get the Vive, but that's it.

Wings over Flanders fields ultimate edition (WOFF UE) is on my Christmas list from the missus.

I've got all the other versions and want to complete it.

Just grabbed American truck sim for a sale price and I'm waiting to see if ETS2 viva la France Dlc has a few quid off in the steam sale

I already bought BoM on 50% off sale during November. There's nothing else out in the sim world that I'm going to be buying, only things yet to come.

As for non-sims, maybe if I see a great deal on some games, but I've got a mega backlog right now of games I've yet to play or want to replay (just finishing my 2nd play of Bioshock, 6 years after the first). I'm not hurting for stuff, no point in getting it unless it's really cheap.

Frankly, for a combat flight simmer,WOFF UE is a must have : 80 flyable aircrafts in hundreds of squadrons in a totally dynamic campaigns,with a great IA, for around 50 bucks with the christmas discount.

I'm considering Air Missions: Hind.
Looks like a fun light sim, and I love the Mi-24 Hind as a subject matter.
