The Flare Path: Continuum

What a con! So far '2015' feels a lot like a re-badged '2014'. I know you shouldn't look a free update in the mouth, but gosh, a few improvements would have been nice. How much longer must we wait for that Ebola fix... that promised 'Peace in South Sudan' scenario? Surely ISIL-seeking killer bees and colourblind-friendly rainbows don't take that long to code. I'm beginning to…

The Flare Path: Heads For The Hills

The FP works outings are legendary. Every year on the first bank holiday in Spring I pull up outside the office in a hired Abarth 500.

The Flare Path: A Stoichiometric Mixture

FP likes his driving games the way he likes his Nineteenth Century literary heroines: lots going on under the bonnet, keen on cross-country rambles, accomplished on the pianoforte. Small wonder then that when he's not being kind to servants or being cruelly misunderstood at dances, he's usually to be found enquiring after the health of Spintires and Automation.

The Flare Path: Elegant Elefanticide

How rude. I sidle off to the seaside for a week of sun, sand, and saucy postcard scrutiny and instead of downing tools and waiting patiently for my return, the World's wargame workshops and sim smithies press on regardless. Combat Mission's assault on the Gustav Line appears to have commenced in my absence. DoorKickers' doorkickers are now toting sledgehammers and breaching charges. Blimey, even the forest-furrowingly…
