Self-Indulgent Birthday Minecraft Cake Post

I'm gonna eat ya little piggy.

Just to say, my girlfriend is best of all the girlfriends.

But I’m also convinced that there must be other game related cakes that people have had and, ideally, photographed. So post links below, and I’ll magic them into images in the comments. Thus we will win at the internet.

Rock, Paper, Birthday: We Are One


We’re twelve months old. Of course you’ll find some “July 2007″ in the archives, but that was us just messing about. Our official, royal birthday is the 20th of August. That means the Rock, Paper, Shotgun project is a year old today.

The reason it has lived this long is because we have readers. We seem to have readers because we have words. We’ve compiled the exhaustive list of the best words from Year One beyond the jump. But before you go there, we want to ask for our birthday present. We want you to read that list and find a link that you can send to a gaming chum who does not read RPS. Share the links, spread the words of RPS, and all shall be merry. Thanks, you. Here’s to another year.

Afternoon Valve Nonsense Round-Up

It seems churlish not to link to all this madness.

First up, it’s TF2 in Lego!

Lego makes everything at least 45% better.

Follow the link, as there’s lots more of these, and it’s obligatory that you look at them.

Next, how about a Weighted Companion Cube made of balloons?

Coulton on Portal

In case you missed it, MTV’s gaming blog ‘Multiplayer’ yesterday threw up an interview with Jonathan Coulton, the dude who wrote Portal’s ever-catchy Still Alive, about the story behind that very song. It’s fun, if not hugely illuminating, but most importantly addresses the vital cake question:

I don’t think I ever got any cake, but they [Valve] promised it all along. I will say they have the greatest table of snacks in their kitchen that I have ever seen: baskets and baskets of granola bars, and candy and all kinds of gum and Tootsie Rolls and Nerds and Doritos in little bags.

Valve’s Eric Wolpaw (and ex-Old Man Murray funnyking) weighs in at one point, revealing that also considered for Portal’s music was Ben Folds. Ew. I suspect I’ll have nightmares tonight about a horrific alternate reality where that actually happened, like the ones I sometimes have about Robert Zemeckis sticking with Eric Stoltz instead of Michael J. Fox for Back To The Future.

More Weighted Companion Cube Love

The world, quite understandably, simply adores Portal’s silent square. While we all tough out the agonising wait until Christmas to snuggle up to an official Weighted Companion Cube plushie, here’s a couple more wallpapers that RPS readers have kindly pointed out.

Chris sends this piece of widescreen eyeball delight, available in multiple shades including ‘toxic green’ and ‘hot pink':

And Wolf sends his own fine creation, available in widescreen and full-fat flavours here.

Satellite Salute

Beeep... Beeep... Beeep...

The RPS guide to staging your very own Sputnik Commemorative Event.

You will need:

– Five minutes of preparation time.
– One copy of freeware space flight simulator Orbiter.
– One copy of the equally free Project R-7 add-on.
– Appropriate sounds (I recommend Bach, Glass, or this).
– Vodka (optional).

Got all that? OK, now… Read the rest of this entry »
