    I call dibs on the container ship! Form Newark to Antwerp...here we go.

    This could be like back in college and when I used to play Harpoon (awesome game!). Before going to class, I would set it to real time. I'd come back and voila, I just picked up where I left off.

          The art of war is simple enough. Find out where your enemy is. Get at him as soon as you can. Strike him as hard as you can, and keep moving.

            Looks about as fun as the Train Simulator. Maybe this will have some awsome wave dynamics/graphics though.

              lol, well, you'd have to be into boating to like it. This would be good practice for getting your Captain's license. My dad is going to get his, and I might later.

                Well, I am a sim addict. Bring me the simulation for the most boring job on Earth and I will probably play/enjoy it... Before you ask, I dont know what is wrong with me ;) Feel free to probe the psyche and present a diagnosis...

                I played the ship simulator demo and liked it. Fun part, for me, is to learn the technical details (nautical terms and standards) and develop the skills to maneuver the boat; taking wind speed/direction into account, using bow thrusters, etc. If you use a wheel to control like I did, you will enjoy it more. They did a good job modelling the water (well, what else to model good in a ship simulator?). But I need to see what happens when weather conditions change.

                I had great fun with MS Train Simulator and looking forward to next one from the same developer (Rail Simulator). Check out the beautiful cabin shots: here

                I also look forward to a Truck simulation called Rig "n" Roll . I might be the ONLY soul here following the progress of this game...

                  Unfortunately, you are somewhat limited to ports and cannot embark such long voyages in the coming version. But they say it may/will be possible in future releases/mods...

                  Silent Hunter III is still your best shot for cross Atlantic adventures... My first mission took a week to finish.

                        Well, I did try the demo. It's.. "interesting"

                        I think my brother would like it. He's a hardcore boater but not too savvy when it comes to video games. I actually think he'd get a lot of amusement out of going through the various missions and piloting the ships.

                        It's not my cup of tea though, although I do get into submarine simulators which to many people can be equally as boring.
                        Diplomacy is the art of saying "good doggie" while looking for a bigger stick.

                            I laughed this off after seeing the trailer a while ago - my first impressions were Jaws meets Tugboats meets massive explosions from ship collisions.
