The idea is so simple that an eight year old could conjure it up. In fact it’s probably one that most eight-year-olds since 1977 have at one point or another fantasised about. Pop an Oculus Rift on your head, boot up Eve: Valkyrie and suddenly you’re inspTide the cockpit of a careening, laser-loaded, missile firing, dip-dodge and diving, space-bound dog-fighter.
