Have You Played… Sid And Al’s Incredible Toons?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Rube Goldberg set off more than he thought when he started inventing crazy machines back in the day. On PC, his legacy mostly lived on as The Incredible Machine, a series of... honestly, less 'build a machine to do a thing' games than…

Have You Played… Red Baron?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. In the dozen or so years I reviewed flight games for the British version of PC Gamer magazine I never gave out a 100% score. If I'd been sim scrutinising in December 1990 things might have been different.

The Mötley Crüe Tribes 2 Theme Song Time Tried To Forget

When publishers throw a bucket of pop culture over video games with a celebrity endorsement or musical crossover, we get a fascinating glimpse of just what they think of people who play games, and those they hope to attract. Heartfelt ones can end splendidly, like Quake's soundtrack by Nine Inch Nails, but mostly they're just confusing and a bit odd. Take Eminem dancing in front…

The Flare Path: Slye And The Familiar Stone

I'm not a fan of the word 'venerate' (It's too close to 'enervate' and 'venereal' for my liking) but when it comes to Red Baron, Dynamix's Great War luft legend, I'm not sure there's a verb that better describes my feelings. The news that Damon Slye is returning to Flanders, determined to recapture that exquisite balance, that perfect pace, and - fingers crossed - those…
