Default Tom Clancy's HAWX

This title was announced sometime last year, and got me more than a little excited. All I head then was that there was to be a Clany game focussed on Air Combat. My real excitement stems from the fact that there are very few flying games out there that bridge the gap between Arcade, and Simulator. Growing up playing with titles like Jet Fighter II has me itching for another shot. I'm pretty certain this'll be "dumbed down" for console, but knowing the other Clancy titles, there'll be a hard edge of "reality" to it as well.

Looking good!

And if that helmet looks a little "sci-fi" it is. It's also the new helmet for the F-35 JSF. Apparently does away with a conventional HUD, and replaces it all with projected images on the visor. In theory (and presumably practice) it allows the pilot 360 views, even through the floor of the plane.
