Halo 4 will be released tomorrow starting at midnight at select local stores.
Will you be asleep tonight or awake, fighting an ancient evil with the Master Chief?

If your currently subscribe to the Zune Music Pass, this has now changed to Xbox Music. As depicted below, you should have got an email from Xbox with a gift of 1000 Microsoft Points to use on any of the music, video or game content on Xbox Live.
I look forward to using the new Xbox Music service and the new functionality it brings.
The C-46 has arrived! I know I know I know, how is it possible that new content has appeared for Microsoft Flight after development was discontinued? Well it seems as though this aircraft was complete, but they still needed to do the paperwork to get it released.
This plane was originally built as a cargo and troop transport during WWII. This twin engine aircraft can carry up to 17,000 lbs of fuel and cargo to almost any remote and rugged landing strip. It has a relatively high cruising speed of 200 kts and a maximum range of 1500 miles. This makes it the perfect cargo aircraft for Alaska.
I think this is a great addition to Microsoft Flight and is an aircraft I look forward to flying. It’s too bad that there is no cockpit view.
I know I’ve mentioned this in the past, but I really wish there was a way for the community and 3rd party vendors to create additional content (aircraft, maps, etc) for Microsoft Flight.
That’s too bad because I was really enjoying Flight and just started to fly in the new Alaskan Wilderness pack.
Microsoft has commented that they will continue to support the community that has embraced Microsoft Flight and that it will continue to be offered as a free download. You will also be able to buy any of the DLC material.
I’ve bought all my DLC material from Steam as they have sales and bundles. If you like Microsoft Flight and are thinking about buying any DLC…watch for sales on Steam. I suspect with development grounded, the prices won’t remain as high as they are now.
The community complained that the flight simulation lacked extensive terrain, aircraft and support for 3rd party content. Perhaps Microsoft should open up Flight and let the community extend it.
Anyway for the time being, I will continue to enjoy what Microsoft Flight brings until such a time a new simulator emerges from Microsoft. Maybe we will see a flight simulator tailored to Windows 8.
The Steam Summer Sale has started, and all Microsoft Flight DLC is 40% off until July 23rd.

I just purchased the Microsoft Flight: Alaskan Wilderness pack. I’m very excited to give this a try.
Microsoft will soon release its second expansion, Alaska Wilderness DLC for Microsoft Flight.
Like Hawaii, with its rich history of military aviation, Alaska has also seen its share of airborne hostilities. The difference is that the opponents in Alaska aren’t other pilots: they’re the elements and terrain itself. In a land where the nearest roads might be hundreds of miles away, planes provide the only efficient way to travel and transport cargo over long distances. You’ll face capricious crosswinds over mysterious vistas, unpredictable terrain with isolated and difficult landing strips, and other challenges in this land of fierce and dangerous beauty. Are you ready to take on the Alaskan Wilderness?
Look for this adventure to be available soon. Until then here are some awesome screenshots:
