I like the struggling business idea. Reminds me of the good ole days of games like SimCity and all the Tycoon games like Detroit etc. It would be fun if you have to save the company and turn a profit maybe by managing the costs of things like a Tycoon game, but you also get to be involved in all the flying yourself. Putting out fires, police chases, following criminals etc, rescuing people, sightseeing, medevac etc..

I would highly appreciate if someone could tell me the helicopter types we've already seen in the screens ( i know the models were slightly changed but they are inspired by the real ones) :)

err no, a MD520N is the no tail rotor type which also has the pointy nose like the MD500E etc.

it is most likely an MD500D (type 369D)

FYI, there is no such thing as a Bell 421. It looks to be based mainly on the Bell 412 with a few UH-1Y features like winglets and engine cowlings. A Bell 406 is actually the Bell designation for what is almost always known as OH-58D (US Army Designation).

A little trick that usually works with Bell Helicopters, if it has 2 blades, the designation will start with 2:

205 (Huey)

206 (Jetranger)

206L (Longranger)

209 (Cobra)

212 Twin engine Huey variant

214 Huey on steroids

4 Blades:

406

407

412

417 (Twin 407 concept, never saw the light of day as far as I know)

429

Thanks Leftskidlow!

and @Carl That is exactly what caught my eye (ears)! Maybe we can get some info during GC on that

---------- Post added at 10:42 AM ---------- Previous post was at 09:14 AM ----------

I am wondering what an armed private military contractor might do in the middle of Seattle ( could be the asian terrain aswell but the building makes me think its seattle)

The shining head might also be a helmet so the person could be a policemen which would answer the question

you can find the photo here

I was wondering about that too. I seem to remember a dev saying that TakOH would' date=' in fact, [i']not[/i] be using PhysX. I could be wrong though.

Perhaps Mr. Crowe was just confused.

He often is; we were hesitant sending him to GC. Then we realized the fun we had seeing the community live ambush the E3 booth, and we're hoping for much the same in Germany ;) Take On Memes!

Seriously, is there anyone who doesn't have clogs? Every real TKOH's fan must have one ;).

So comfortable shoes, I understand why DnA don't want to borrow his clogs :p.

I'd suggest the inclusion of atleast one GyroCopter as well?

Maybe with added rocket launcher/stinger and machine gun :P ala You Only Live Twice

But, gyrocopters can't take off vertically. Or

? :D

Could be fun, but wouldn't it require a different flight model? Weapons would have to be dropping grenades :)
