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…

Priceless Play – September 15th 2018

Since moving to California, I find myself missing the seasons. I grew up in Virginia, where the leaves change colour every September. When living in England, there was a yearly rotation of scarves and heavy coats to mark the coming of autumn. It seems silly to complain about the year-round temperate climate that blesses the beachy shores of SoCal, but it gets pretty boring here…

Mae be a cat, Mae be she isn’t

I was going to write today’s supporter post about how I'm finding No Man’s Sky and Yakuza 0 structurally tedious for different reasons while enjoying them both, but something more important has come up. Is Mae, the cat from Night In The Woods, a cat? I hope you kids have brushed up on your essential and accidental properties.

♪♫ When you go to San Fraaaanciscooo, be sure to wear a lanyard with ‘Media’ inscribed on it round youuur nnnneck ♪♫ That’s what Adam, John and Brendan sang to each other as they gleefully skipped through the streets of California’s tram-infested hill city. The crew were in town for the yearly Game Developer's Conference where they spoke to developers, played games, and gambled on…

Podcast: Who are our best friends?

Hello chum! Sit down and have a nice glass of water and a pack of Bombay mix. That's how we greet our closest friends on the RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show. This week, best pals John and Brendan discuss how friendship is handled in videogames, and what characters felt most like close buddies. John felt a kinship with Alistair from Dragon Age: Origins, and…

Alyse Stanley’s favourite games of 2017

This year it has felt like there's been a string of quality games releases. Games that I’m proud to support, whether it be for their tackling of serious subject matter or excellent writing or unique concepts that push the industry forward. Games that are already redefining preconceived standards of play. In short: next year has a tough act to follow.

Podcast: The Electronic Wireless Show talks RiME, Endless Space 2 and OrbLands

The RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, was recently brought out of retirement for one last job. But it turns out that job takes place on a weekly basis. That's why the third episode is out now, in which Pip, Adam and I talk about sunny platformer RiME, alien-smashing grand strategy Endless Space 2, and walking simulator-with-bullets OrbLands. This week also features Quickfire Questions with…

13 recent games that run well on terrible laptops

'Terrible' only in the sense of their gaming capability. Honestly, I'm sure your laptop is lovely to look at and it was definitely a extremely sensible idea to spend all that money on it instead of buying a holiday or helping to save the pandas. Truth is, though, that playing recently-released games on the vast majority of laptops is about as effective as starting an…

Free Loaders: Infinite Monkeys On Infinite Amstrads

It's Boxing Day. I know tradition holds that we all fight to the death over the leftovers from yesterday's pagan feast, atop the long-table, in full view of our clansmen and clanswomen. But let's take a moment to appreciate that, while the rest of us are throwing bones at one another and plotting various tribal coups and possibly some patricide, there are people out there…
