Look: RPS Is Hiring A News Writer

By RPS on January 26th, 2012.

Your work machine.
Astonishing! RPS is hiring again. We’re looking for a committed and energetic news writer. This is a full-time, paid position. We pay reasonably well, too, although the exact salary will depend on your experience and ability. As RPS news writer you will be responsible for news-posting aspects of RPS five days a week, under the supervision of the existing team. You will be expected to communicate directly with developers and publishers about their news-making games. If you can’t pick up the phone and use Jedi mind-tricks on a PR, then this job is not for you. To put yourself forward for this position please email us here with a CV and a 200-word example of your ability to a write a concise, moderately amusing article on a current gaming news topic. Other links to previous news-length work will also bolster your application.

Applications must arrive in our inbox by the 20th of February 2012.

Status Updates & News Trumpets

By RPS on June 5th, 2011.


Hello! You will notice that there have been a few changes to comments and also to the forums. These are part of an ongoing redesign that is taking place thanks to the tireless work of Mr Sutcliffe and Positive Internet. The site should begin to be faster, and have more functionality for you. There’s so much more to do, but it’ll happen gradually, so you guys need to keep giving us that feedback – we require and appreciate it. The best place for feedback is this folder on the forum.

Also, this coming week we’re going to have a crack at getting the best out of an E3 that looks to be big for PC – you can follow all the E3-specific content on this tag. It’s also worth following our Twitter account for additional notifications and newsbits.

Finally, you’ll notice that we’re doing our best to flag up feature content. There will also be far more feature content on the whole in the coming months, because the site is now really hitting its stride. Hopefully we’ll do more of the kind of things that you’ve been asking for, like sending Quinns down a mine. Thanks for your heroic reading, and hopefully you’ll get to see RPS become the site we all hoped it would be when we started all those years ago. A particular thanks goes to the subscribers, who recently bought us an additional server. You guys are okay.

Half-Life: On Turning 35 And Leaving RPS

By Kieron Gillen on September 30th, 2010.

Today I hit half my biblically allotted time on Earth. I’m also leaving RPS’ full-time staff. That’s my last regular commitment as a “real” games journalist. These fifteen years have been a pleasure.

For a little more of what it means for the pirate-ship that is RPS, read on.

A Redesign For Life (Well, for a bit anyway)

By RPS on April 29th, 2008.

Yes, we’ve had one. Will be tweaked in the next week or so, so don’t start screaming. Lots of new cleverness. Please keep comments in this thread and don’t get too angry. We wouldn’t like you when you’re angry.
