The RPS Super Uplifting And Helpful Holiday Buyer’s Guide

By Nathan Grayson on November 28th, 2013.

It’s almost Black Friday! Also, I guess that Thanksgiving thing is happening somewhere in between for filthy Americans, but that’s just a warm-up. A sentimental stop-gap. What really matters is making sure you get all the things on the cheap before everyone else does. That’s the real spirit of the season. But you can’t do it alone. You need assistance, aid, a helping hand to pluck out the games that’ll help you get ahead in the race to complete your ill-defined goals. Being the holly jolly consumer that I am, I made a quick video for just that purpose. Because what kind of site would RPS be if it didn’t continue such a time-honored, social-pressure-ridden tradition?

Ho Ho Holidays!

By RPS on December 25th, 2008.

You know what we’ve earned? A holiday! So after our 12th Game of Christmas goes up today (what will it be? what’s the game of the year?!), the four titans of RPS will be spinning a cocoon around their weary caterpillar bodies and resting for a week. Once our pupae state is over we will emerge like hairy moths into a new year. A year we are going to call “2009”. We hope it will catch on. That said, bits and pieces will be appearing throughout the week – keep checking. It’s not like it’s possible to stop Kieron writing Sunday Papers.

Thank you to every single reader who has clicked on our site this year. It’s been a goodun, which has seen Rock, Paper, Shotgun grow and develop into something we’re damned proud of. We’re only going to get better, so you should probably wear protective clothing, or at least a firm hat. Raise a glass to Horace The Endless Bear at this festive time of year, or to whichever minority religious deity you are prescribed, and make merry. Happy Christmas everyone. We’re back proper on the very 2nd of January.
