Bought it yesterday. By far the greatest Final Fantasy game in a very long time. Not really a FF game but to me it is!

From what I understand, the game's essentially a spiritual successor to Final Fantasy 4 Heroes of Light. The original "Flying Fairy" subtitle the Japanese release had was to let the game have a "FF" in the title.

For those unaware of local SF Bay Area news, there have already been 15 deaths attributed to the flu recently.

http://www.sfgate.com/health/article/Flu-deaths-in-Bay-Area-rise-to-15-5141467.php

Many of the deaths are attributable to a strain of influenza that has targeted the relatively young and healthy. One victim in Sonoma County, Matthew Walker, was only 23.

The vaccine is well-matched to this year's flu season and protects against all strains of influenza that have been identified in patients. The primary strain circulating this year is Type A, subtype H1N1 - also known as the "swine flu," which caused a global outbreak in 2009.

People age 65 and older appear to have some protection against H1N1, which tends to strike younger adults - even those who are otherwise healthy - harder than most influenza strains. Symptoms of the flu include high fever, body aches and a sudden onset of illness.

Even after people are vaccinated, it's important they take other steps like regularly washing their hands or covering coughs and sneezes to keep themselves, and others, healthy, public health officials say. Those who are sick should not go to work or school.

The flu vaccine takes about two weeks to become fully effective, so public health experts recommend people get it now if they haven't already.

@korolev: Pretty sure it's a developer doing the narration, probably the same guy from the Scale and Detail trailer. Its a small developer, I'm guessing they preferred it that way.

Never heard of X until now. That in mind, clumped together with my healthy skepticism of Deep Silver, I'll try to keep my expectations in check. But if it turns out to be what that trailer "hyped"...

Well, gosh! It'd be incredible!

Egosoft has a solid history of doing these sorts of games.

This sounds like snake oil.

What makes you say that? Sure past X games have needed a lot of mod support to reach its potential, but they are still pretty solid if not time-consuming to learn.

Hey GB dudes, upload the X Rebirth Scale and Detail trailer for this and blow more minds! ;P

I really like the more playful than vicious satirical tone and some of the references seem quite funny but it really doesn't look like a very engrossing game at all. More like something you'll fuck around with for a few hours, chuckling and moving on. Which is actually pretty acceptable given how singular the attempt to create a game like this is - at least to my knowledge.

I believe this is the 3rd Political Machine game actually. The game's more about seeing if you can win elections from different approaches, particularly at higher difficulties. It's got more of a boardgame feel than anything I'd say. So yeah, you'd play for a few hours, and maybe come back to it later wanting to try a different candidate.

3.55/gal is not cheap

It is for California standards, at least right now :(

Too bad the Costco over at Novato doesn't offer gas, I'm sure those guys would take advantage of it. Though I think they're around the same price as that right now, maybe a little cheaper.

What about an awesome use of a tablet for touch-enabled cockpit clusters?

Tablet? Pffft...go all out or go home! ;)
