Feature: Watch, watch, watch this vid, gently as it streams

Come watch RPS become streaming superstars at EGX 2018

[Update: The first day's streaming is done! But you can still watch us kissing the ground hard in Human Fall Flat in the video below.] That rumbling sound you hear is half of Brighton packing its bags as Gamer Network decamps to Birmingham for EGX 2018. And the Rock, Paper, Shotgun Video Department will be at the show, too. We’ve decided to try our hand…

This Is The Police 2 introduces turn-based battles

Woop woop! That’s the sound of This Is The Police 2. It's rolling in here with a megaphone and a page from an old Argos catalogue held up like it's a warrant. Damn pigs. Looks like they’re here to show off another trailer. What is it this time? Another look at the antagonistic and corrupt law enforcement officers, I’ll bet. No, wait. It’s a deeper…
