    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.

    Dear JR,

    I've been spending my festive break in little known management simulator "Crossroads Inn". All mypatrons are happy, the beer is free flowing and my name is lauded far and wide.
    Unfortunately some chavvy carpenter and his fat wife are demanding I put them up for the night, but all my rooms are full!
    What should I do?


    The Innkeeper, Bethlehem

    Dear Inkeeper,
    To be honest, you would be better off slamming the door in their face, if they can't be bother to book in advance or turn up at a reasonable hour, it's hardly your responsibility.
    Of course, you could always let them the stable, if they are that desperate they will probably accept anything. Best make sure they don't try and sneak in any kids though, they seem a shifty sort.

    The birthplace of the son of God. Yesterday.

    Dear JR
    I know it's an old game, but I'm a bit of a miser and having seen it for 50p, I thought it might be worth a splurge.
    However I simply cannot get the game "Ghostmaster" to run.
    It's so bad that as soon as the title screen comes up the screen starts shaking violently and goes all black.
    I really could use your help as I think the ability to manage ghosts might be really quite useful for me.
    Yours in anticipation

    Ebenezer Scrooge

    Paint me like one of your French girls.....

    Dear Ebenezer,
    I've checked the specs of your machine, and as luck would have it, they are identical to the testing rig we use here at PCGAMESC dungeons. So I fired up GhostMaster and it seems to run perfectly.
    Have you adjusted your specs at all?
    Alternatively, and I only include this bit of advice as a bit of a longshot, but have you recently had some bad experiences with the supernatural? Could it be possibly that it's not your silicone hardware letting you down but your organic hardware? Might you, indeed, be suffering with a touch of PTSD?
    I'm sure a session with a local counsellor with see you right as rain and able to play in no time.
    Well, so long as you haven't been moronic enough to continually vote for a political party which has seen mental health services run into the ground.
    Good luck

    JR.

    Merry Christmas Everyone

    • 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.
      And now, it would appear, you can fulfill all your darkest barrel fantasies in Gaming Minds studio's Port Royal 4.
      The name is certainly a placeholder.
      Probably.

      Top Grand Strategy Supremo's Paradox have today announced a mafia strategy game.
      There are not many details at present, but I suspect the usual suspects will be up in arms about the use of the "angry black woman" trope.
      Truthfully, I'm curious to see how long this sits here before anyone notices it
      (Belimawr excepted. It's his site, I dare say he has notifications set up!)...

      Civilisation VI:- Gathering Storm


      Civ V was released to a wave of anguish from gamers complaining about how it was a massive retrograde step backwards from Civ IV in it’s AI, graphics and playability. 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.

      And so to Civ VI, released to a wave of anguish from gamers regarding...

      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).

      However these musings are not why we are here, indeed we gather to answer a far more important question. In the year of Russian poisonings,...

      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,...
