If you're a fan of flight action games and/or combat flight sims, you know what it feels like when the rest of the world just doesn't give a crap about what you like.  As time goes on, such games become fewer and farther between while the ones that are released seem like maybe, just maybe, they weren't given the care they deserved by the developer because the developer knows hardly anyone will play it.

I feel your pain, and so does Kalypso Media.  Their WWI/WWII-based arcade air combat game, Air Conflicts: Secret Wars, is now available for download on the PS3 for $19.99.
