The Flare Path: A2Z

A is for Absence of Amiens wargames. Want to mark the Battle of Amiens centenary by recreating the dazzlingly successful Allied push on your PC? Good luck with that. Amazingly, no-one except the odd Open General and Panzer Corps modder seems to have deemed “the Black Day of the German Army” as scenario- or game-worthy. I can only assume that no dev has ever stumbled…

The Flare Path: A Roundhead Reflects

Apologies. This brief but heartfelt Pike & Shot: Campaigns recommendation is going to be heavy on the assumptions and inferences. Expect lots of statements like... The game's unscripted version of the Great Turkish War is probably highly entertaining... Swedes will almost certainly adore the Gustavus Adolphus campaign... Multiplayer should be a hoot... I suspect there's some cracking engagements amongst the historical battle selection... You see…

The Flare Path: Now Even Harrier

Swift sequels make The Flare Path uncomfortable. When I see a flight sim follow-up like Combat Air Patrol 2 set to arrive a mere 23 years after its predecessor, I find myself wondering how much genuinely new content will be included. Yes, the engine, feature set, and premise look totally different, and Sim155's commitment to dynamic campaigns and intermediate 'IL-2 level' realism sounds right up…

The Flare Path: Perpetually Monitoring

Close Combat was PC wargaming's Hirō Onoda. Years after his comrades emerged from the jungle with hands raised, the turn-spurning CC engine was still busy patrolling... scouting... soldiering. People like me would periodically point our bullhorns at the undergrowth and urge the old fool campaigner to "Jack it in!", or at the very least learn some new tactics. Usually he'd reply with wild rifle shots or deluded AI…

C&C Renegade X Is Still Being Released On Its Release Date

With official C&C games staggering dazedly around development limbo at the moment, our need for a tasty bit of NOD must instead be sated by the fan community. Renegade-X is a modders' ambitious and apparently impressive attempt to redo EA's ill-fated FPS-RTS spin-off Renegade, and it's been in the works for quite a while now. Last November brought news that a version 1 release would…

I Ship Ships: Ironclads: Schleswig War 1864

Totem games just won't leave those ships alone. Following last year's Ironclads: High Seas, here's a demo for their new Ironclads: Schleswig War 1864. I think I can speak for RPS as a whole that we've been waiting for a game based on the Schleswig War since our formation in 1873. Who could resist a game where the - er - ships - er -…

Ship-shaped: Ironclads: High Sea Demo

RPS are big fans of ships. Especially Ironclads. Well, they're Ironclads for most of us. For Quinns, due to a sad iron deficiency, they're just 'clads. In fact, they're barely clad at all. All of which means we're pleased to hear that Totem Games - from Russia, if their URL is anything to be believed - have released a demo of their Ironclads: high Seas…
