War Thunder!!
« on: August 28, 2013, 06:15:18 am »
This game freaking rocks!  It's free to play, but you don't have to spend any money to advance.  What makes it so fun is the Arcade version is so EASY, and still looks really cool.  You can fly with just the mouse, no skill required! Or take the game all the way to very realistic simulator.  But really the most fun is the Arcade version or of the game.  It can be found on steam.  Lots of fun, for beginners as well as seasoned simulator pro's! This one gets 5  :) :) :) :) :) !

Alright, I was already considering giving it a shot. I see that it's pretty new (released August 15th), so how is the multiplayer? Are there many people online and available to play with?

I'm downloading/installing it now so I can play when I get home from work. Hit me up if you see me and we can dogfight. :P

The longest I've waited, is about 1.5 minutes.  It uses a match making system to balance skills etc.  I'll get on team speak later on, and we'll give it a go. :)

Lol, I know!  I don't know if my interest will burn out fast, but at the moment, I can't leave it alone. :)

I know what you mean, ATL. I think right now it's challenging and fun because of the desire to unlock more planes/upgrades, however, when that is completed I think I might NEED to have people I know to play with as a squad. Could be a very good game that way. I noticed also, the logo picture WAR THUNDER has land, sea, and air. Also, in the main hangar screen where you can select planes, Army and Fleet are "currently unavailable". I could see this turning into a VERY fun RTS Multiplayer type game. So far, so good. I'll keep playing. Hit me up, you too Corn.

It's a lot of fun. I am still getting used to the "full controls" mode, but i think i may need a flight stick for that.

I'm still playing with the mouse for now. I'll check out the full control mode a bit later when I'm of a higher rank. You may be right about the stick, though. That sounds like it'd be pretty fun.

In the middle of making a lengthy post, drawing from my vast noob knowledge, I somehow lost my work.  So the short version.  Arcade mode, is best played with, so called advance settings which adds wasd, which greatly adds to maneuvering ability.  Flying with the mouse reminds me of flying the Shee in halo, but ten times better.  I would strongly advice inverting your Y axis, so when you pull back you go up and push forward to go down, that will help aid your brain when you switch to a flight stick.  But for Arcade mode, I'd stick with the mouse, that's where the craziness of unexpected flight maneuvers, and the mouse making you look like your a seasoned veteran pilot, sucks your ass right into the game and won't let you go!  Beware for those that haven't tried the game, once played, your going to be stuck with it for awhile, kind of like crack, or cigarettes, but less damaging to your health.

Yeah, I got it on Steam as freeplay too. I had no idea it was a BETA though! It's already so good! Watch the video trailer they have on the main web page. Kind of confirms my earlier suspicions about land, sea, air.

I played this last night with my brother, and it is even more fun with friends. You can start squads and rank up the squad too. Someone is there covering your 6, and you help them as well.
