  • Ask JR At Christmas!
    ASK JR

    Another year pushes towards it's inevitable conclusion, and as we in the UK enjoy what might well be the last Christmas where food and alcohol are i plentiful supply, it's time once again where we suspend our festive joyous festive activities to think of those less fortunate than ourselves, to help the less fortunate and spread festive cheer.

    I've been spending my festive break in little known management simulator "Crossroads Inn". All mypatrons...

  • Barrel Simulator
    Imagine, if you will, the 17th century Caribbean, we all know about the Pirates, the Corsairs, the Governers flamboyant sons, all of whom have already had their own videogames (OK, well maybe not that last one) but we all know who the true hero of 17th century maritime life was...the humble barrel.

Over the course of two expansion packs many of these issues were resolved and many now heralded Civ V Brave New World as the pinnacle of the series. Wrong people, obviously, IV is still better.

    Last Year we were mostly playing

    And here we are again, another year closer to annihilation and the nothingness which follows, and all we can do is stand around remarking on how fast the past year has gone whilst wondering if next year will be faster (It won’t be, though the year after will be slower if that is any consolation to you).

    At Christmas

    I know, I know, I’m very late and your enjoyment of the festive season is incomplete until you have seen the problems of the rich and infamous solved.

    After all, if you are not famous, then you are simply not as important.

    Dear JR,

    On the feast of Stephen, I was looking out on the landscape presented in what can only be the fundamental Christmas gaming experience, Frostpunk,...
