Podcast: The games you might have missed in 2019 so far

 You can’t play everything. Trust us, we’ve tried. You can’t even take note of all the games that come out in one week. Our mushy human brains can barely keep track of why we’re standing in the dairy aisle. Was it milk we're low on? Or butter? Yoghurt? Hang on, I'm vegan. What am I doing here? Anyway, you’re bound to have missed a…

Wastes Of Space: A Space Engineers Diary – Part Four: The Space Race

Last time on Wastes Of Space: The RPS crew managed to firm up their toehold in the alien hills of Horace’s World, under the tutelage of their peculiar assistance droid, ODD. Survey Officer Ligz went on an ill-fated mineral-seeking expedition, Science Officer Cox decided he was a god, and the increasingly authoritarian Security Officer Crowley used all the crew’s metal to make a hooning great…

Podcast: The strongest friendships in games

 You’re a good person, reader, and I will always believe in you, no matter what. No, not you. The person behind you. No, to the left of... No, the other person. The one in the green-- No, you, with the... NO. The person BEHIND you, I said. The person with-- Oh great they’ve walked off now. This whole thing has been a waste of…

Wastes Of Space: a Space Engineers Diary – Part Three: Space Dungeoneers

Last time on Wastes of Space: After having been dumped on the alien backwater known as Horace’s World with barely any kit and even less of a plan, Alice, Matt and Nate finally managed to meet up, thanks to their robot friend ODD (and his Vengabus). In one place at last, they laid the foundations of their colony, and began the backbreaking work of taming…

Fortnite Assault Rifles guide (V9.00) – Assault Rifle tips, Tactical Assault Rifle stats, Drum Gun stats, Fortnite’s best Assault Rifle

Just when we got to grips with the lack of Thermal and Suppressed Assault Rifles in Fortnite, patch 9.01 brings the new Tactical Assault Rifle to the table. This new weapon seems like a variant of the Scoped Assault Rifle, and time will tell how it fares compared to the other weapons. Our Fortnite Assault Rifles guide will walk you through each of the rifles…

Wastes Of Space: a Space Engineers Diary – Part Two: The Vengabus Cometh

Last time on Wastes of Space: Alice, Matt and Nate were sent into the black with no training; three chumps signed on as “bronze level” colonists with Royal Planetary Services, and commissioned to find riches at the wild edge of space. After making landfall on an unnamed world, they found themselves separated, but in radio contact with the enigmatic robot ODD. Despite helpful instructions from…

Podcast: What game is the biggest “time sink”?

 Your time is important. And you know what? So is mine. Here’s this week’s podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. It’s about how your life is dripping away every second you play Stardew Valley.

Wastes Of Space: a Space Engineers Diary – Part One: Wolves

Earlier this week, four lucky inhabitants of the RPS Treehouse were selected to travel… to Space. Our mission was to colonise a distant world, using only our wits, our brawn, and the game Space Engineers. None of us had ever played it before, and all we knew about it was that it was reputed to be as complicated as it was unforgiving. But humanity didn’t…

Podcast: Betrayal, backstabbing and rebel scum

 We would never do anything to hurt you. Our loyalty is beyond dispute. That’s just how trustworthy we are on the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. If anyone is the spy here, it’s you. I don’t even recognise you. Have you been to this website before? You look nervous. Maybe you’re hiding something. Maybe you’re planning to stab us all in the back…

Podcast: Watch us acting silly at EGX Rezzed 2019

I say “watch” because this week's podcast takes place in a real room in front of a real audience (don’t worry, there’s an audio version too). At Rezzed in London this month, we thought it’d be fun to re-enact three of the most memorable scenes of PC gaming, exactly as you remember them. So strap on your eye-wideners and prepare for some wonderful acting. Including…

The RPS Verdict: Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy

Video Matthew: Court is now in session. I think we’re legally obliged to cram in naff legal references when writing about the Ace Attorney series. There is a very good chance this RPS chat-o-verdict will end with some horrible ‘any objections?’ type thing. We shall see. I have gathered us - by which I mean, you, Katharine - to discuss Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy,…

The First Annual RPS Olympics at EGX Rezzed 2019

EGX Rezzed is a cavern of knowledge and wonder. Distinguished veterans descend monklike into its depths, prepared to discuss topics as diverse as the psychology of game addiction, the design of fictional languages, and the financial viability of small studios. Some people, though, are too refined even for such rarified chat. Some people spent Rezzed goofing around in stupid local multiplayer games, hollering their own…

Podcast: Goodbye to John and Alec

 Yes, that quiet sobbing you hear is coming from the RPS treehouse. Alec, one of the founders of this PC games infospout, left on Tuesday. And John, another founderer, is leaving later this month. The treehouse boards will creak no more with the weight of their knowledge. The branches of the great tree have sagged with sadness. Far below, the infinite sniffing of a…

Our favourite games at EGX Rezzed 2019

The staff of RPS were rambling around Rezzed last week, like a troop of rowdy baboons. We were inspecting the games of our yearly show and rubbing our chins, going “hmmm” with the pensiveness of an art critic on the toilet. I’m saying we were being judgey monkeys. There were a lot of games to play, from comedy physics platformers with wobbly-armed buffoons, to oh…

EGX Rezzed 2019: Join us at the RPS Mixer in association with Fishing Cactus

EGX Rezzed is the UK's loveliest gaming event, attended by gaming's loveliest people - and also the staff of RPS. That's why every year we hold the RPS Mixer, as an opportunity for all those lovely people (and also the staff of RPS) to hang, to chat, to prattle and jabber. This year is no different: we've teamed up with developers Fishing Cactus to hold…

A psychologist talks about game addiction and other brain things at EGX Rezzed 2019

I, one of the Alices (guess which) have read at least two entire books about video games, and one of them is a book called Lost in a Good Game: Why We Play Video Games And What They Can Do For Us by Dr. Pete Etchells. It's about how games aren't as bad as some studies, Piers Morgan, and approximately all of the newspapers say…

Come watch the RPS podcast reenact the most famous scenes in gaming at Rezzed

Games have had some iconic moments. The death of Aeris, the twist in BioShock, that bit in Mass Effect 2 when you punch the reporter completely unprovoked. We love to revisit these moments, but sometimes loading up an old save isn’t enough. Sometimes you need to step into your character's shoes in a more theatrical manner. At EGX Rezzed next week, we’re hosting a special…

Listen to indie devs share their secrets at EGX Rezzed

EGX Rezzed is filled with indie games, which means it's also filled with indie game developers. It'd be foolish of us not to trap some of those developers onstage and make them share their secrets. That's what Rezzed Sessions are all about: giving you a peek at how games are made and how you might do it yourself, from the graft of starting a studio…

Podcast: What games did we change our minds about?

 I heard you don’t like our podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. But have you listened to 76 hours of it yet? Honestly, mate, it opens up after that. The 76-hour mark, that’s when it “clicks”. But I understand if you don’t have the time. Just skip ahead to this week’s episode, in which we’re talking about games about which we changed our minds. Listen…
