    Phoronix: A New Flight Simulator Game Is Flying To Linux

    It's been revealed that a new aircraft flight simulator game, which last year was released for Windows and the Xbox 360 / PlayStation 3 consoles, will soon see a native port released for Linux as well as OS X via Steam...

      Was on my to-cover list ever since their comments, then I put it up and within no time your article appears after mine. A good journalist gives credits to sources...

        One can only hope that publishers continue to test the waters with Linux gaming and that they'll broaden the genres so that there's more uptake. Case in point, this game looks awesome and I can't wait to grab it.

          One of the most important (both by terms of user base and highest level of fidelity) flight sim platforms, DCS, is not coming to linux and those blokes plan ~5 years ahead.

            I would say that Falcon rivals DCS in terms of accuracy, unfortunately there are no plans for a linux port for that either. Still nice to have something I can use my FCS on in linux other then X-Plane.

              Well this is phoronix you know, it's not like he really goes out of his way to source his stuff as opposed to shoving 20 self-referential links in the post and possibly one link buried in with that mess of self-references pointing to the actual source. I'm not opposed to the self-referential links being there as it is nice to go through the hierarchy of events leading up to something but really they should be a different color or something, and the source link should be more prevalent.

                It's just sad as I see him rip others content fairly regularly without a hint of journalist integrity for citing sources to give credit to the people who it's actually due to. Remember Mike you started out somewhere small too.

                What's more sad for me is I used to love Phoronix.

                  not a flight simulator

                  I must come out of lurker status to address a pet peeve of mine: referring to a flight combat simulator as a flight simulator. Too many times I've excitedly purchased or downloaded a game that wound up not having the most rudimentary of control surfaces, like flaps or a rudder.

                    Flight sim games these days are kinda boring. Back in the 90s, there was this one flight sim game, can't remember the name, that took place in an alternate-history WWII where hitler never rose in power, but instead aliens attacked earth and everyone had to defend against them using WWII-age airplanes against flying saucers... there should be more games like that.
