The Three Grumpy Simmers have been roused from their slumber by Microsoft's announcement this week of a confirmed release date for their reentry into the flight simulation world on August 18 2020.
We dissect the information provided by Microsoft as part of the announcement and give our thoughts and impressions. Listen to us prattle on about our excitement, and our concerns following the announcement. We also relieve some moments of simulation history and ask what lessons might be learned from them.
Thanks to you the simming community, we also get an insight into what you are feeling towards this upcoming title.
There may or may not have been a side comment about a certain Pucara video... here it is if you want to watch it: https://youtu.be/9tX80fH8RaY
