The RPS Social Club: Friday, 14th August In Brighton

RPS Social Clubs are reader-organised events meant for the merriment of all who call themselves friends of Horace. We occasionally highlight such events here on the main page and we’d like to do so more often. Below, a write-up by Ben Meredith, organiser of June’s Brighton social, with details of where the troop will be assembling next on August 14th. Want to host your own? Let us know.

Picture the scene. A pub. Brighton. The smell of freshly poured ale and a wisp of smoke from the beer garden. A man, me, sits with trepidation, cursing the fact that he’d left the sign he printed out at home and hastily scribbling “RPS Social in here” on a scrap of paper, torn from an old notebook.

Gamechat Is Go: Next RPS Brighton Social Next Friday

What’s the point in watching all these big E3 announcements if you can’t talk to like-minded souls about how exciting and/or appalling they are? Why, just this morning I tried to ask the builders who’ve been loudly renovating the house next door for four hundred weeks what they made of Transformers Devastation, but they just said something about Megan Fox’s shorts then picked up some decking offcuts menacingly. If only there was some sort of social event for PC gaming folk in my hometown soon.

Well, what’s this? Seems there will be one in Brighton next Friday. It’s in a pub and there’s a banner and everything.

The Brighton RPS Social Returns Next Month

that's the Northern Lights bar, that is

Do you like there to be alcohol available while you do so? Good news, then: there’s to be another RPS Social in Brighton, for residents of the excellent British town or anyone who fancies a February trip to Sussex.

Twine Waits For No Man: The dotBrighton Gamejam

So my failure of imagination has  come to this: taking screenshots of Google street view

There are now more gamejams than there are teeth in my head, but due to a tragic brain defect I am unable to count above the number 32, thus cannot tell you how many gamejams there are. What I can tell you is that it’s basically impossible for us to cover them all, much as we might like to, and as such the dark truth of nepotism has led to this one being given prominence. Said nepotism is because our own fearless interactive interview-creator and lanepusher correspondent, Cara ‘the HoN community’s favourite games journalist’ Ellison, will be hosting a Twine (i.e. interactive fiction creation) tutorial at the dotBrighton Game Jam this very weekend. Seeing as I myself hail from the British seaside town of Brighton, I shall endeavour to turn up too, just so long as I am not dead/tired/dead tired come the day.

Come To Rezzed, The PC Show We’re Helping Out With

Yes, I am pushing for the afterparty to be called 'Derezzed'

The problem with game shows and conferences is they’re so console-dominated – while PC games are there, they’re often lost behind all those Cliffy Molyneuxs and Medal of Duties. Hurrah then for Rezzed, which is taking place in the splendid seaside city (and my current home) of Brighton, UK this July. It’s a new PC and indie-only show arranged by the goodly folk at Eurogamer – with a big fat helping hand or six from the extra-goodly folk at Rock, Paper, Shotgun.
