Welcome Matt Cox, our new staff writer


Sound the trumpets! The RPS hivemind has been restored once more. After an exhaustive search (we emailed him), we’ve hired Matt Cox as our newest staff writer. Please join us in the comments to throw your best hellos at his feet.

Eagle-eyed observers (eg. anyone who can read) will have noticed Matt’s name around the site a lot over the past couple of months. We’re thrilled to have locked him inside the RPS treehouse permanently, so he can continue to write excellent words about the multiplayer games he assures us he’s very good at. I mean, pfft, anyone can do this.

You can read about RPS’s growing tribe of fabulous writers on our about page, which Matt is not on at the time of writing because Graham hasn’t got round to updating it yet. If you dream of seeing your own mug on that page, there’s hope for you: we’re still looking to hire a guides editor, with applications closing soon.

Say hello to Matt!

    It’s a good beard, too be sure, but i’m not convinced it was worth trading in your arms for.

  3. int says:

    As ‘armless as Horace is long.

    Hello Matt!

    Locks almost as glorious as the boy Grayson’s.

      I am pretty sure Martin Starr has stolen Nathan’s identity.

    Hehe, Cox.

    • DarkFenix says:

      I’m sure given some time we’ll all learn to love Cox.

      Is this post implying that within a single race and gender, everyone shares the same opinions? That diversity can only be achieved by a rainbow of skin colors, or else everyone always agrees on everything?

      How racist to assume every person of the same race is the same.

      Anyway nonsense like that aside, welcome, Matt!

      Dear RPS,

      Please continue to hire excellent writers, without reference to their skin colour or fleshy protuberances.

      It makes your site nice to read. Thank you.

    Why does he have his eyes closed and why is he brown?

    Greetings Matt.
    If you ask Horace nicely he will gift you with new arms. Stronger, faster arms! Possibly demonic arms, but hey, don’t look a gift-bear in the mouth eh?

    I just read your Warframe artical. You need to maybe play a game before you write about them.
    And you should have used the wiki.
