Superfriends, Ho: RPS Supporter Program Update

By Alec Meer on September 26th, 2014.

Hello, friends, best friends and frenemies. Our new-fangled Supporter Program has been in full and healthy swing for a little while now, so I thought I’d encourage even more people to join the thousands who have already signed up, and elaborate a little more on all the lovely things the scheme offers.

The Supporter program is an entirely optional way of getting extra-involved with RPS, and while it doesn’t take anything away from the main site, the idea is that proceeds from it will fund the additional exclusive articles we write for Supporters, selected highlights from which will appear on the main site later on, and enable us to commission out more ambitious features, from great writers, which will appear on the RPS’s front page for everyone.

A Brief Survey Of RPS Community Stuff

By Jim Rossignol on January 6th, 2012.

The Community parlor, for smoking and petting of hounds.
Right then, there’s quite a bit of multiplayer gaming go on around the RPS community, and there should be something there for most folks who want to get involved in such activities. Your first port of all should be the forums, where you can see things like a Neptune’s Pride being organised. There are a few big sub-communities on there, such as the Unofficial Minecraft server, which is VERY good, and also the Blood Bowl league, which I believe is one of the biggest, if not the biggest community Blood Bowl league. Notice Arma 2 has its own sub-forum? That’s because they’ve got a big old Mumble server they use for all kinds of games, and are organising regular Arma 2 missions on their server. It’s a splendid community that we are really proud of. Especially since it’s almost entirely down to you guys. Hell, there’s even real life stuff in them there forums, too, such as the London social club. A regular outing!

Then, of course, there’s the rest of the internet, including our Steam group, which occasionally helps us organise games. You can follow all the RPS writers on Twitter, here, here, here, and here. Are you running a community or event for RPS readers? Speak up now!

Arma II: OA Event Tomorrow. Or Not.

By Jim Rossignol on August 28th, 2010.

Men and their guns, together at last.
UPDATE TWO: Oh dear. Problems with the server for this means we’re going to have to postpone. Again. I know, apologies! I’m going to have to get RPS its own games box for these kinds of eventualities! Sorry about this. We will get our Arma 2 game soon. More details later.

UPDATE: Apologies for lack of information! I’m having some last minute problems with the server for this. If you have a private OA server, now would be a good time to speak up. More information soon!

Just a quick reminder for folks who won copies of A2OA in our recent competition that we have having a little multiplayer event tomorrow from 2pm BST. I will be editing the server details into this post a bit closer to that time, so come here for organisational whatnots.

Also! If you are an A2OA owner and want to come along, there will likely be additional spaces to play with us later on, and we’ll probably open it up on the Steam Group once the winning posse are all connected. Needless to say, everyone should get the latest patch, and places for non-winners can’t be guaranteed.

By RPS on August 21st, 2010.


So, the hurrah/bah list for this competition. Hurrah: winners of the Arma 2: Operation Arrowhead competition will be receiving their codes and links this afternoon. Bah: We’re going to have to postpone the actual co-op game until the 29th of August, despite having asked everyone who be available tomorrow. Hurrah: That gives you all some time to practice. Bah: But perhaps some folks will be busy that weekend.

Anyway, read on below for more information and winners.

RPS Eve Community Doing Okay

By Jim Rossignol on October 29th, 2009.


I just wanted to remind fence-sitters and ditherers that RPS reader “Dave” is running an Eve Online corporation for us, and you can find out more about it over on the forum thread. The in-game chat channel is “RPS Community”. It’s welcoming players new and old, and is now up to almost a hundred members. In fact, MMO guilds and clans from any game should feel free to post in that subforum if you’re friendly to RPS newbies. Come on folks, help your fellow gamers find a home in the games they want to play.

I’ve also used this article as an excuse to post a trailer for Eve that was released this summer (below). It only took them six years, but CCP have finally created a trailer that captures some of the reason why Eve is an interesting game to play.
