Train Simulator 2016 Now Chuggity-Chugging Away

2015 is not the year that Train Simulator makes its promised switch to the Unreal Engine 4. Instead, this year's revision Train Simulator 2016 [official site] brings a small set of updates and a new selection of content for the base game. Even as Train Simulator updates go, this year's seems pretty slim. An optimist might say that could indicate developers Dovetail Games are focusing…

The 25 Best Simulation Games Ever Made

Ready to discover once-and-for-all whether X-Plane is better than FSX? Whether Falcon 4.0 is better than Milk Float Simulator 2012? Ready to read the word 'realism' 46 times in a single hour, and spit feathers on discovering that the sim that caused got you through your divorce has been cruelly cold-shouldered by an idiot with a bus fetish and a sci-fi blindspot the size of…

Ghost Train Simulator: The Count Of Monster Disco

A dracula wants you to nip out in your ghost train to pick up a few supplies for his Halloween party. That's a thing. That's real. It's 2014's Halloween gag game from Train Simulator folks Dovetail, and far more extravagant than past 'Trains vs. Zombies' offerings. Its name alone deserves its own line: The Count of Monster Disco. Cor! That's a name and a half…

The Flare Path: Lochs And Unlocks

Today's column bestrides Europe like an unusually colossal colossus. Quite why an unusually colossal colossus would be standing with one foot on Fort William, Scotland and the other on Volgograd, Russia is, frankly, anybody's guess. He could be doing his pre-breakfast callisthenics. He could be admiring the Northern Lights. He might have got a sudden urge to urinate on Finland or Algeria. There's just no…

The Flare Path: Allday Breakfast

Flare Path War Hero #31. Major Leonard Allday. A trained watchmaker and keen amateur ornithologist, Allday joined SOE in August 1940, and spent much of the war working on a series of top-secret bird and bat-based schemes.

The Flare Path: Is Worn To A Frazzle

...having spent the last seven days touring Scotland in an SA Scamp* on behalf of the 'Better Together' campaign. If you live in Dumfries, Stranraer, Ayr, Kilmarnock, Glasgow, Falkirk, Edinburgh, Perth, Dundee, Aberdeen, Inverness, Ullapool, Stornoway, Portree, Fort William or Balamory, you may, at some point during the past week, have seen/heckled/pelted a corduroy-suited Sassenach while he teetered on a soapbox and rambled about the…

The Flare Path: Dora Explorer

One hundred years ago today, DORA - the Defence of the Realm Act - came into force in the UK. Citizens caught lighting bonfires, flying kites, or feeding crusts to ducks risked prosecution. Shops were obliged to remove binoculars from their shelves. Unpatriotic wargame and simulation correspondents that chose to use their columns to promote rigorous replicas of Teutonic flying machines faced the prospect of…

Training Wheels: Train Simulator 2015 Introducing School

I sometimes fancy visiting the countryside in the driver's cab of a virtual train, especially now I've seen the new Japanese DLC route inspired by Spirited Away, but know I'll never put the time into teaching myself to drive one from manuals and tutorial videos. Almost as if they knew train simulators appear terrifyingly complex from the outside, Dovetail Games have announced they'll tackle that…
