Namco Bandai sends word that their very pretty flight combat game Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation
has gone gold and will be available October 23rd. I was pretty impressed with the demo of the game on Xbox Live and the multiplayer modes might satisfy the itch to shoot people down in very realistic looking planes. Honestly this is the game I might pick up just to taunt Dave with since he's a big flight game guy and has yet to convince his CFO that he really does need an Xbox 360. More information and pretty, pretty screenshots are available at the games website
