OMSI 2 rides the Wuppertal Suspension Railway in new expansion

The latest expansion for OMSI 2 offers the rare opportunity to ride the Wuppertaler Schwebebahn, a suspended monorail hanging over the river and streets of the German city Wuppertal. This bus-driving simulator is a bit too serious for my tastes, as I'm more of a happy-go-bumpy Bus Simulator 18 goof, but I would very much like to visit Wuppertal. I'm sure I could become a…

The Flare Path: Heard Through An Open Window

“She comes down in the middle of the night and finds him on the sofa pleasuring himself with a plastic Ankylosaurus.” “Nietzsche was your radical Islam – I get that – but it didn't turn you into a mass murderer did it?

The Wheels On The Bus: OMSI 2 Released

OMSI 2 has just been released and the Steam page contains my favourite feature description of all time: Relive the change taking place in Spandau between 1986 and 1994! OMSI 2 now replicates the exciting years following the German reunification and all the innovations and route expansions (line 137 to Falkensee) that came along with it. The exciement and dramatic changes of German reunification recreated…

Big Bus, Small Hours: An OMSI Diary

The anticipators are myriad. They mill beside the stops at Rathaus, Spandau scrutinising distant double-deckers, and scowling at timepieces. They sigh, they pace, they ignore precipitation, but most of all they wait. They wait, as they've waited this past two years, for the sequel to one of The Five Great Simulations. OMSI 2 is close - so close you can almost hear the trill of…
