RPS is hiring! Come be our guides editor

guideseditor

In addition to the hardware and video roles we mentioned earlier in the year, RPS is hiring a guides editor. Want to come work for us and write witty words about how to get the most out of games? You can find all the details of the role and how to apply here, or click on for more mutterings first.

RPS has dipped its toe in the world of guides over the years, from Kieron writing an idiot’s guide to modding to Pip explaining how to get Inside’s secret ending, Fraser laying out how to create custom factions in Endless Space 2, to more comprehensive guides to certain games. Now we’d like to dip all our other appendages in the water and see what happens.

I’ve been using game guides my whole life, from the tips sections in the backs of magazines I’d buy as a kid to all the times I now go looking for some advantage in Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds or instructions on how to extend a game’s draw distance via a config file. I think, at their best, these articles should entertain as well as inform, slipping jokes and quality writing alongside expert knowledge. That’s what I hope our guide writing here can do.

All the details are at the application link above, but to answer one of the questions that came up last time: no, you don’t need to relocate to live in Brighton. It’s nice if you do – and UK is preferred – but it’s not essential.

What of the hardware and video roles we advertised for earlier in the year? The road to recruitment is long when you’re trying to find the very best people. We should have an announcement on one of them to make in the near future.

    Too bad you guys require things like experience and competence…. Now I’ll never realize my dream of writing for a gaming website. Thanks for tearing down my hopes and dreams RPS!

    Step 1: go to gamefaqs.com
    Step 2: find some one-liners on Twitter
    Step 3: become John Walker rich, baby.

    I could apply and promise not to call anything, ever, “Souls-like”. But I worry that it would instantly get me hired.

    Cool that RPS is hiring like this. Shows promise for the future. I Hope they interview Quinns for this position – the guides wouldn’t be very useful but they would be fun ;)

    I really wish I was as fluent in English as needed to apply for this role.
    May the most competent fill it soon. :)

    Well, it’s nice you’re challenging yourself RPS. As a long purveyor of gamefaqs, reddit and even, when absolutely necessary, the IGN thing, I think I’ve found a couple of entertaining guides. So good luck.
