Flight Simulator X Trial Version

There is a demo up for download, I know some people don't consider this a game, but I thought some of you might be interested.

Works really, really well with the 360 controller. Granted I had it on easy. I just enjoy the flying around. Anyone wanting a more serious sim will use the keyboard also, but the 360 controller does make you feel in full control.

Really nice demo, BTW. I did quite a bit of flying around with a few planes and I haven't even tried the missions yet.

360 Controller? How does that work with your PC?

The corded one is a standard USB controller. You plug it in and windows update will download the driver. Quick calibration and you have probably the best controller available for a PC. I have used it with the Lego Star Wars demo, Flight Sim X demo, Grim Fandango and a few other old games and it works great.

Crap, I didn't know you could download drivers for the controller through Windows Update. I just cancelled the wizard when I use my PC to charge the controllers. Cool.

Don't mean to go off on tangent, but I got a 360 controller for the PC and it really does work great! Very happy with it.

In regards to Flight Simulator X, I'll let my Dad know about it. He's into that kinda stuff...
