“this latest entry could not be a more perfect reinvention”

Despite its love of geeky detail, of procedure, of exacting realism, there’s always been something very primal about Microsoft Flight Simulator. What players crave, what drives them to learn every step of a perfectly-recreated flight sequence, is freedom – that feeling of escape that only a journey into the sky can convey. In that sense, this latest entry could not be a more perfect reinvention. Using technology sufficiently advanced to seem like magic, it realises a child-like vision of what a game should be: it lets you fly literally anywhere on the entire Earth. We’re absolutely blown away by it, and we think you will be too.

In a little less than a year, the Dota Auto Chess mod’s popularity has already spawned plenty of imitators, as well as a standalone follow-up from the original developers. Now they’re even making surprise cameos in other games’ tournaments. Hearthstonepro Linh ‘Seiko’ Nguyen was playing a Grandmasters match against Elias ‘Bozzzton’ Sibelius in September and, during the course of the battle, made some catastrophic errors that ultimately cost him the match, surprising the viewers watching and his opponent. Viewers could see that Nguyen was distracted, and he wasn’t watching the screen. Instead he kept looking down at his lap. He was so busy doing something else that he was the last person to realise he’d lost. And it turns out that ‘something else’ was playing Auto Chess. “THE EXPECTATION IS THAT PLAYERS SHOULD…

highs & lows

HIGHS Netflix’s The Witcher According to a now deleted social media post from Netflix, Geralt will be hitting screens on December 17. Sea of Thieves The pirate romp has pets now! They dance, they vomit and you can fire them out of a cannon. EVE Online The MMO will implement grief counselling for new players who lose a ship. LOWS Cyberpunk 2077 Romance options are confirmed, but we’re told you can’t get dirty with Keanu, so what’s the point? EA The publisher’s amazing defence of loot boxes is now in the Guinness Book of Records for most downvoted comment on Reddit. Fallout 76 A new update adds a useful fridge item… but it costs real money, breaking Bethesda’s promises of no pay-to-win microtransactions.…

the spy

The thing films don’t teach you about espionage is that it’s 99% waiting. You wait for the dead drop. You wait for the perfect shot. You wait for the evil genius to cease monologuing about world domination long enough for you to tell him that you’ve already redirected the death laser into the swarm of homing sharks and his plans are now naught but a pathetic rerun of a Shelley poem. Life doesn’t happen in montage. It all takes time – time that The Spy likes to spend considering the great mysteries of the universe. For instance: why are wasps? For what reason did nature create an angrier, shitter version of bees? Was it just the evolutionary version of banter? And, if so, is the joke on wasps, bees or us? Other…

ISSUE 207, December 2009 ON THE COVER Dragon Age: Origins IN CINEMAS Zombieland 1 It’s the Dragon Age that we don’t get shouted at for giving 94% and naming the RPG of the decade on the cover. Which is fair, as Dragon Age: Origins is a brilliant game and well deserves its plaudits and legacy. And don’t worry. We’ll get to that sequel in about a year and a half. 2 Dragon Age, Borderlands, and Need for Speed Shift were in this issue’s reviews. It was around this time when people finally stopped pretending PC gaming was dead. 3 We’d never claim that magazine coverlines are sometimes sensationalist, but let’s just say that “Windows 7 on trial – why you still don’t need it” is a… spicy interpretation of Alec Meer’s enthusiastic report on Microsoft’s OS. After years…
