Wings of War due out on Xbox today - 08/31/04 04:52 PM

9:12 am
Wings of War for the Xbox is scheduled for release today, 8/31/2004. I was not able to reserve a copy so I got to wait for the doors to the game store to open. When we tried to reserve a copy at Gamestop, they said the computers arenít accepting reservations for this title. I tried elsewhere with no luck.

So Iím sitting at work right now counting the minutes. I will try a run for the Electronics Boutique for lunch. Wish me luck.

You wont need to reserve it. Trust me. Theres more than likely not NEAR enough interest.

Aladar, maybe you're right to the extent that the X-Box market may not appreciate something made with a good deal more regard for realism than may be usual in an arcade game. But anyone who misses out on WoW because its not "sim" enough for them, well that's their loss.

Good luck GSharp, you'll have gathered WoW's not everyone's cup of tea but the less Puritanical simmers - yes they do exist - will love it, good hunting. And in anticipation of a successful mission to the store, welcome to the Sim Heretics Association, Wings of War Division!

Got my copy at 11:10 this morning ! Can't wait to get home. The guy said he sold two of his four copies already. And that's here in Sorry Sacramento CA.

Package, disc and booklet look very sharp! Will get back to you guys about the play later!

YEAH

Hey guys!! Maybe you misinterpret my message! I plan on getting WoW, and I've been looking forward to it since I heard about it, and I enjoy a new sim as much as any man! I'm mearly stating the facts! The demand for games like this isn't high enough to worry about reserving! Sheesh, just a tad too defensive arent ya?

Hope to meet you in the PC Wow blue skies!

I know FlyXWires a funny guy, but a ;\) never hurt. ;\) And looks like I'm gonna have to buy the PC version as well, I bought the Xbox. For some reason arcade flight sims go well with console controllers, eh?

I expected great graphics, I expected a sharp presentation, but what I wasn't ready for was when the other pilots screamed as they flew by! Damn that's funny stuff. I am getting used to my Xbox controller all over again. Very nice lable on the Disc and a very nice booklet. All in color but with only a few pics. I've only played it for four hours now, too early to comment anymore. So far so good though! \:\)
