The Flare Path: A2Z

A is for Antediluvian art. Go to iEntertainment for your WarBirds 2020 information and you're sure to come away unimpressed. The pics on show here suggest this imminent MMO sequel is going to stick out like a Sopwith Camel in a sky full of Spitfires and Bf 109s when it appears this autumn. Confusingly, cockpit images recently tweeted by resurrected developer MicroProse give a very different impression.

The Flare Path: Cobbled With Craniums

Thank heavens, Battlefront, the devs behind just-announced Combat Mission: Fortress Italy expansion Gustav Line, aren't planning to model the propaganda shells that regularly exploded over Allied positions at Monte Cassino. Coming on top of the minefields, the barbed wire, the steep slopes, the cunningly sited German strongpoints, the snow, the rain, the mud, and the infamous Green Devils, blizzards of courage-corroding handbills might have been…

Wartaste: Combat Mission – Fortress Italy Demo

As 'Hellhound' wiggled her way back through the gap in the farmyard wall, the shellcase-strewn position we'd just abandoned was scarified by…

The Sicilian Defence: Battlefront Talk Plans, Prices, & Pixies

I'm free! Using a straightened coathanger, a blob of chewing gum, and an old Broken Sword walkthrough, I've managed to escape the fetid dungeon that is The Flare Path. God, the air out here sure is sweet. And the views - wow! - that must be Mount Manshoot over there, and that can only be the Temple of Fairly Tiresome MMOs. A man could totally…

The Flare Path: This Sporting Life

Gosh! I've just read the small-print in my RPS contract. It seems Flare Path's remit includes sports simulations. Strictly speaking, for the last 45 weeks I should have spent as much time in dugouts and bunkers as dugouts and bunkers. My weekly screenshot selection really should have featured as many wingmen, props, and Tigers, as wingmen, props, and Tigers. Thank God the Hivemind usually naps…
