UK Writers’ Guild Noms: Go Go Gillen & Stern

By Alec Meer on September 19th, 2011.

One thing the Curfew isn't good at is celebratory screenshots :(

The Writers’ Guild of Great Britain – a rather different entity to the US Writers’ Guild – last week announced its nominees for assorted mediums’ most lauded writers. Included are the obscure likes of ‘television’, ‘theatre’, ‘books’ and ‘radio’, but fortunately Best Videogame keeps things relevant to our little corner of the internet.

The RPS Electronic Wireless Show 45: Stern!

By Alec Meer on October 21st, 2010.

Indeed. It is true. We’ve put our mouths in front of a microphone and made noises at it once again. Only not very much this time, I’m afraid. Instead, the bulk of the larynx-gymnastics originate from Splash Damage’s Senior Game Designer Ed Stern, who’s behind most of the words and a whole lot of other things in Brink.

Also making vocal appearances are a cartel of RPS readers who attended the recent Eurogamer Expo, at which this chat was held. They had questions. They asked them. Ed answered. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. Many Bothans died.

Gaming Made Me: The Return Of The Panel

By RPS on July 14th, 2009.

It’s been emotional. Now, over a week of frenzied nostalgia later, Gaming Made Me draws to a close with a final round-up of Developers and Journalists. From the former, Ed Stern, Brian Mitsoda, Annie Carlson, Dan Marshall and Simon Parkin. From the latter, LewieP and Simon Parkin. Oh no! Simon’s dual-classed, the powergaming twink. Recollections… go!
