The Rock, Paper, Podcast: Enter The Cyberzone

By RPS on September 26th, 2014.

Gosh! Such a lot has happened since last episode of the weekly Rock, Paper, Shotgun podcast. It’s almost hard to comprehend how so many events could happen in just seven days. Luckily, John, Jim and Graham have chosen just the most important happenings to talk about on the episode itself. Topics include Jim’s thoughts on Lichdom: Battlemage, Graham’s thoughts on Brigador, John’s thoughts on a game he can’t name yet.

Come, step below to listen and rejoice. We’re great at this.

Avellone, Vlambeer, Tornquist, More In INDIE MEGACHAT

By Nathan Grayson on July 3rd, 2013.

Update: embedding fixed, and download links provided!

Rezzed was a time of magic and wonder. Indie developers of all shapes and sizes mingled with fans and each other alike, and it was nearly enough to make us all forget that we were trapped in Birmingham. Honestly though, it was a pretty strange scene. I mean, on one hand, there were devs like Vlambeer and Introversion – outfits who’ve been relatively small since day one – but on the other, folks like Obsidian‘s Chris Avellone and Dreamfall/Secret World creator Ragnar Tornquist roamed the halls. And yet, all of them could technically be considered “indie” nowadays. So I decided to gather a formidable panel of developers for an impromptu discussion about what exactly “indie” means, indie as a reaction to triple-A, the difference between bigger “born-again” indies like Obsidian and tiny outfits like Vlambeer, publishers, creative constraints, the film industry’s approach to similar issues, diversity, and heaps more.

Head past the break to hear Chris Avellone, Ragnar Tornquist, Introversion‘s Chris Delay, Vlambeer‘s Rami Ismail, and Redshirt‘s Mitu Khandaker chat about all of the things. All of the things.

By Adam Smith on June 24th, 2013.

Along with all of the lovely exhibitors and visitors at Rezzed, the crowd contained every current member of RPS, although one of our number did have to leave in order to care for his offspring. But still we gathered, a band of six, and spoke of what we had seen. Below you will find the Rezzed Shotcast featuring Adam Smith, Cara Ellison, Craig Pearson, Jim Rossignol, John Walker and Nathan Grayson, with discussion of Hotline Miami 2, Sir, You Are Being Hunted, Rome: Total War 2, Gone Home, Revenge of the Sunfish, gaming’s best doors, the first digital willy and much, much more.

The Rock, Paper Shotcast Episode 5: Drunk On Tums

By Alec Meer on May 28th, 2012.

Another satisfied listener

Back once again for the renegade PC games blogging masters. Adam, Alec, Jim and John gather in one virtual place to talk about Diablo III, nu-XCOM, Game of Thrones, illness, Greece, The Call of Duty Company, EA and Kickstarter, their own massive ignorance, Goebbels and the mecha-Queen of England.

Edit – 60s-style hard-panned recording now replaced with a mono/centred one for your less psychedelic enjoyment.

Rock Paper Shotcast Episode 3: A Bad Ending

By John Walker on April 2nd, 2012.

According to our surveys, these are typical RPS readers.

Come one, come the other one, and press your earlobes against the modern radio. It’s the awkwardly Skype-recorded Rock, Paper, Shotcast, complete with ghost-bleeps, episode 3. It’s what Marconi always wanted. You can find out about why you should listen, and even listen, below!

The Rock, Paper, Shotcast Episode 2: TeaBoss

By Alec Meer on March 27th, 2012.

Kieron always wants to sit on Adam's lap

Assembling for the second ever Shotcast are these reprobates:

Alec Meer (mumbly), Adam Smith (Northern), Jim Rossignol (bored), Kieron Gillen (not Northern).

Discussed: tea, Mass Effect 3′s bugs, Half-Life, the problem with bosses, Perpetuum Online, Darksiders 2, games journalists singing Metallica, tower defence, Notch’s space game and Assassin’s Creed III.

Audio quality: Still wonky. We’re working on it. We need to get hold of some expensive microphones, soundcards, headphones and replacement larynxes, basically.

Download/streaming links: below.

Listen! The Rock, Paper, Shotcast Sputters Into Life

By Alec Meer on March 21st, 2012.

Jim, uploading the podcast, yesterday
The Electronic Wireless Show is dead. Long live the Rock, Paper, Shotcast.

Brand new! In theory weekly! More confused than ever because we thought conducting it via Skype was a good idea!

Jim, John and Alec are your talking-all-over-each-other hosts in this inaugural Shotcast. Discussed – videogames, mostly. Videogames like Wasteland 2, Diablo III, Mass Effect 3, Rochard, City of Heroes, Sins of A Dark Age, Natural Selection 2 and The Secret World. Also height, hair, crying, hot drinks and why John still can’t accept that he’s a bad healer even after all these years.

The RPS Electronic Wireless Show Episode 51

By John Walker on November 23rd, 2011.

In episode 51 of the RPS Electronic Wireless Show, Jim and John catch up on the events that have taken place in the week since we last recorded. Events like the release of some games, and some games we have played. Those are the events we experience in our lives.

There’s chat about how great Tim Stone is, Jim’s racism against cat people, and we ponder why RPS readers like RPGs so much. John explains why he hates Modern Warfare 3 so much, while Jim moans about BF3′s doors. There’s thoughts on how open we really want our worlds to be, and then, perhaps not surprisingly, we turn to Skyrim. We talk Skyrim’s structure, exploration, quests and peculiarities.

Roguelike Radio: The Binding of Isaac

By Kieron Gillen on November 17th, 2011.

I'm even repurposing a screenshot. I'm so fucking lazy!

Hullo! I used to write on this site, and then I got very tired. I sleep most the day now. It’s nice. When I’m sleeping, I get my nurse to play podcasts. This is my favourite games podcast in ages. Roguelike Radio is a Roguelike-centric podcast which plays a different one every couple of weeks and does a show about it. In this case, however, they’ve got Edmund McMillen on to talk about Binding of Isaac. And it’s so brilliant, I almost managed to stand up. But my legs failed, and I was left sprawling hopelessly on the floor. I wish I had working legs and a functioning penis, though that’s probably too much information. But honestly, unless my critical faculties are as rusty as my cog-powered cock, this is a genuinely brilliant, wide-ranging interview about McMillen’s latest. Go listen! Meanwhile, I’m going to have a little lie down. Bye!

RPS Electronic Wireless Show E3 Special

By John Walker on June 9th, 2011.

VISUAL IMAGE! Design me a better one, please.

Blimey, here’s a surprise. Dusting off our podcasting tools, John and special guest Dan Griliopoulos gather in a noisy restaurant to discuss what they’ve seen at E3 so far. Not only do you get to hear about Skyrim, Battlefield 3, Tomb Raider, Hitman, Deus Ex, Serious Sam 3, Payday, Torchlight 2, Saints Row: The Third, DUST 514, Dead Island, Batman: Arkham City, and many more, but also find out what they order, and then hear how long it takes to arrive! Hear the conversations of the neighbouring tables. Hear when Dan drops a knife on the dictaphone. Never hear anything else again.

World of Love: The RPS Panel (& Podcast)

By Alec Meer on February 7th, 2011.

It looks so civilized! It wasn't.

At the recent A Winter World of Love indie developer conference in London, RPS was kindly invited by event organisers Mudlark to host a panel. We thought long and hard about the many fascinating and complex issues surrounding and facing independent games, and before too long it was entirely clear what our panel should focus on.

Winkies, of course.

RPS Electronic Wireless Show Episode 48

By RPS on January 14th, 2011.

VISUAL IMAGE! Design me a better one, please.

Jim and John blow the dust off the RPS Electrionic Wireless Studio to record a new podcast for your mind. Do they discuss games? Almost! Herein is chatter about flu, television and hand farting. And very occasionally, games.
