Rock, Paper, Shotgun is more than just a website. It’s the last line of defense against the humdrum of everyday existence. It’s an ever-expanding collection of wonderful, videogame-y things to help you remember why you love this medium in the first place. It’s sort of a blog, which is a subcategory of website.
We’re sort of embarrassed to talk about it, but it’s true. If you want to be updated every time we post a news story or feature you can do so by liking that RPS Facebook page and/or following that RPS Twitter account. Our posts will then unfurl from this website, their tendrils threading themselves into the broader fabric of your life. Those tendrils can speak and they say, “Hey you, on the bus. There’s a new game trailer for some weird indie thing. Maybe you’d like to check it out.”
Or maybe these scratchy words feel like an imposition. Maybe what you crave is the grace of movement and the comfort of sound. We sporadically offer both via the RPS YouTube channel. If a YouTube channel speaks and no one’s subscribed to it, does it make a sound? Yes, yes it still does do that. But maybe you’d like to subscribe so you can hear those sounds.
Or perhaps you’re an optimist. Maybe you’re the last hold-out among your friends. “Everyone, seriously,” you say. “RSS is going to take off in a big way, just as soon as people find out about it.” In which case we salute you and point you to the RPS RSS feed. Stay committed, true believer.
OK, that is all.
