SKY SESSIONS: Over G Fighters
Andrew Stevens from Fanbolt.com periodically shares his Twitch series “Sky Sessions” with Saitek.
In this week’s Sky Sessions I take a look at one of my favorite flight games on the Xbox 360. In fact, there isn’t another aviation related game that I’ve played more than Over G Fighters.
Over G Fighters was the right game at the right time as I hadn’t recently played many flight games prior to its release. I wasn’t big on PC gaming during most of the 2000’s so I missed out on a lot of the flight sims there. I did play the Ace Combat series and other arcade-like games on consoles, but Over G Fighters was the closest to a flight sim out of any of those. It provided just the right feeling I was looking for that wasn’t too overly sim but still close enough that it made take-offs and landings a great deal of fun. Plus, it was always a challenge to land on an aircraft carrier.
During the 30 minute Sky Sessions video I provide viewers with a look at what it’s like to simply just fly. I don’t cover any of the missions or modes at all. I simply just show off what it’s like to do the thing we all love to do, which is fly!
I did have some fun though by landing in the middle of a soccer field, inside a stadium, with the F-35. I actually have only done that a few times and impressed myself by doing it so well for the first time in what feels like forever.
I also show off the power of the F-22 and stylish look of an F-16 Thunderbird. By the way, I spent a minute trying to remember what the smoke button was when flying with the Thunderbird. Unfortunately I forgot that it needs to be equipped prior to flying. Enough writing though, check out the video above!
