Drew, you need to look up J-CATCH, an experiment to see how effective helicopters would be against jets in air to air engagements. The helicopters had a 5 to 1 kill ratio on fixed wing aircraft because they were able to stay low to the ground (over open ocean the helicopter is much more vulnerable) and difficult to detect while the fixed wing aircraft had to stay at much higher altitude making them easier to detect and shoot down with common anti-air missiles.

Long story short, fixed wing aircraft needed to stay the hell away from helicopters.

That was way early in the guided missile game. Air to air these days means whoever can get lock first (or have a drone/wingman provide lock) fires FOX two or three (AIM-9 or AIM-120) from miles away and heads for home.

But ya, helicopters are fucking rad

Blue Thunder vs. Air Wolf... where is my goddamn matchup

Read through a bunch of the comments and it seems like most people think like I do. This is a GOOD game, and it is worthy of my time. 3 stars all the way!

I love watching these things but wow what happened? This is easily the worst panel ever posted on this site. The production value is a huge step down, barely any interesting game discussion and that Game Bomb bit was an embarrassment (I just skipped most of it). It's not all a loss since the subscriber stream before was alright -- maybe they said all they had to say at PAX there (and on podcast I haven't heard yet)?

Not typing this to be mean but I hold GB to a higher standard and I just feel the guys aren't pushing themselves to satisfy this time. This may be partly due to this panel feeling like Jeff Gerstmann and friends; it seems others barely had any presences or were free to have presence. It'd be more enjoyable, as a fan of all of staff, to see more shared spotlight at these live events.

I was there and I agree. Cant win em all I guess.

As an experiment I introduced my 8 year old to this game after I saw part 1. For the record, Dan is besting him regarding game mechanic knowledge. But really not by much. Not by much at all.
