The Flare Path: A2Z

A is for A7V action WWI armour sims are such rare creatures, I can't bring myself to say anything negative about 79p work-in-progress Cry of War. Currently boasting one tiny cosy map and three tank types (the A7V, Mark IV, and Renault FT), the game combines amateurish quirky presentation and crude forgiving movement physics with surprisingly sophisticated ballistics (shells can ricochet... system damage is determined…

Tim Stone’s favourite games of 2017

We asked a handful of our contributors to put together a list of their three favourite games from 2017. Their picks are running across the week while the rest of RPS slumbers. Having just re-read all 51 of this year's Flare Paths carefully noting when and where words like 'lovely', 'compelling' and 'clever' were used, I now know for sure what my Favourite Games of 2017 are. It…

The Flare Path: A Fanfare of Foxers

Like a sentry on a bitter night or the Isle of Man in a strong sou'westerly, Flare Path's birthday has a tendency to move about. Last year the champagne corks ricocheted and the streamers tangled on August 12. This year the big day is September 1. Today Rock, Paper, Shotgun's most Panzeriferous and Spitfiery column becomes a hexager. Celebrations will take the usual form –…

The Flare Path: In Cold Waters

A message for Mr. D. Jones Esquire. Over the next few weeks, thanks to unlikely-to-disappoint Cold War sub game Cold Waters [official site], your locker is going to see a lot of action. I strongly advise you to make space, grease hinges, and evict endangered echinoderms in readiness for the imminent deluge of mutilated missile frigates and battered boomers.

The Flare Path: What are they all playing this weekend?

April showers filling my gutters, May blossom spangling my hedge, June bugs headbutting my window... Mother Nature seems to have muddled her months this year. I'm not one for idle gossip as you well know but Mr Valentine at the sweet shop reckons she's back on the gin. Apparently she reeked of the stuff when she came in for her sherbet lemons on Monday. Just…

The Flare Path: Things to Come (Part 2)

Like that chap just to the left of the lady in the big hat in every Victorian crowd photo ever taken, the world of simulation refuses to stand perfectly still. During the next eleven and a half months a constant stream of the Globemasters that have served as the genre's storks since sector deregulation in 2003, will be touching down at Simulatia International eager to…

The Flare Path: Laminar Floes

There's a saying in my village: “When sloes and cobnuts early fall, And goatsuckers in daylight are heard to call, You'll be playing a spiritual sequel to MicroProse's Red Storm Rising and a new instalment of X-Plane in no time at all.” The local sayings related to wargame pricing and acceptable frame-rates in heli sims scan better but are less relevant to today's column so I'll…
