I've only played the tutorial, once with a pad and once with a stick. Getting the controls set to what they need to be on the stick sucks. I can't remember what button does what. But for me, it's easier to fly. I crashed 3 times, trying to land on the carrier. But I did it perfectly the first time with the stick.
That's great news. Thanks! When it was first announced, I thought, "yeah right". But it's good to know its looking like its going to happen. Just in time too...I have 75+% left in two areas in Hawaii left to do.
