What precisely is the name and publisher for the upcoming Oleg 'BoB' release? when looking to pre-order it, there is two other games with the same exact title, or near close, with COMING SOON on them as well.

The game that Oleg is building is officially named right? does anyone have a link to this game in preorder.

AND ALSO...... what is this??

this was released today with an announcement. what is this? do i want it? do i already own it with my FB/AEP/PF install?

they also have a COMBAT OVER EUROPE pack (both seem ****ed pricey considering they can be downloaded at 32.00US)

whats up with that?

then there is this!

doesnt that look like BOB but wait, its published by Synergy. then theres Rowans which is now GMXmedia.

why is it so muddled? why did Oleg pick a title so lost in a sea of other similar titles releasing at the same time?

If you have FB, AEP, and PF you have all Maddox content for this game. The only 3rd party addon that I've heard is worthwile is Battle Over Europe from Just Flight. Any others, you should ask about here first, as it appears you already have.

hmm. JustFlight eh? dont have that one. guess im gonna head on over and buy that.

seems like GMX has about 3 different add-on mission packs for sale. they look good.

but this is so confusing about BoB! look this one says its shipping on 4-12 and its made by Shockwave!
