RPS Omnibus: Feb 3rd-8th

The wheels on the bus go round and round, and are unconvincingly Photoshopped

Goodness, yet another new regular feature. Next we’ll be doing horoscopes and crosswords. (Note – we’re not going to do horoscopes or crosswords).

Anyway, the purpose of this inaugural RPSnibus is to round up every story posted over the last week, for the benefit of our less regular readers. We do, after all, write ALL THE WORDS IN THE WORLD on a daily basis, so hopefully this is easier than bewildered ferreting through our archives. It’s also a handy opportunity to highlight any interesting/entertaining stuff you lot have brought up in the comments threads, and hopefully lure fire’n’forget readers back into the discussions. An RPS post is for life, not just the front page. Is this good idea/bad idea? Let us know’n’all.

Features, Opinions & Interviews

  • A Word Is Worth A Thousand Pictures – Is narrative more important than graphics? In comments, discussion of what ‘narrative’ really means in a gaming sense – is a player’s own mental attribution of personal purpose and accomplishment to his in-game deeds more affective than even the best-written dialogue and cut-scenes?
  • Interview: Sins of a Solar Empire – A chat with one of the minds behind what will doubtless be one of our games of the year.
  • Interview: Al Lowe – the avuncular fellow behind Leisure Suit Larry talks adventure gaming, and his uncensored feelings about the hateful 21st century Larries.
  • Interview: Insurgency – Andrew Spearin, founder of Moddb’s 2007 Mod of the Year winner talks the past, present and future of the militaristic Half-Life 2 total conversion.
  • The Club: The RPS Opinion
