Any Canadians here?

Shoppers has sale right now for it. $49.99 CAD. Pretty good deal since it just came out like 1.5 months ago.

Price:$49.99 Retailer:Shoppers Drug Mart

In the flyer from September 4 to September 10.
I know it is included in Xbox Game Pass but if you want to own it or don't have Xbox Game Pass, it is $30 cheaper than at other retailers.
Get 20x the PC Optimum points on September 4 when you spend over $50.

I tried this last night and flew around my home City for a little while. The graphics and details are amazing. But panning the camera around in 30fps is jarring to me now. I guess I've become a 60fps snob after having gamed at 60fps for months now. I wish they could tone some things down or make compromises somewhere to have the game run at 60fps on XSX but I guess if they could have done that they would have.

Still, this is a nice, chill title with no real objectives other than taking in the sights or furthering one's obsession with piloting. I was just having a hard time adjusting to the lower refresh-rate. I really don't miss that 30fps stutter......not one bit.

I read there's a way to run the game on XSX at an unlocked framerate that hovers between 80-120 fps but first I need a display that can render at 120hrz.

I'd forgotten how incredible some of the world update areas can be. I logged in to download the new Australia content and decided to do a "quick" flight around Monument Valley. I just watched Stagecoach, the film that made Monument Valley famous, this last week. Flying around the area was honestly breath taking.

I really wish there was a simplified control mode for this game. I have such a frustrating time just taking off where I had to stop playing it entirely. The game looks amazing in flight. I like flying around locally to see what people have behind their houses not visible from the road. Also wish they had helicopters in the game, but that would mean even more frustrating controls.

My dad(70+), who really doesn't mess with videogames at all, LOVES Flight Sim. So much so that he's contemplating building a PC just to play it optimally. That's wild to me.

It has that. You can basically have it control like a driving game.

I have everything set to the easiest things with all assists (from what I can tell) but it's really not helping me any. I can deal with the small planes once they're off the ground, but I can usually take off 1 out of 10 tries.

Tell him he might have to take out a second mortgage to build a PC right now.

Yeah, he's the one who taught me how to build computers so he knows what he's getting into to. But he's also 73 so I'm getting alot of, " When did graphic cards get so expensive? Why does X cost more than my server? Can I use my server hardware instead? Why is Microcenter price gauging even on my business account?" Been alot of hand holding.
