RPS Xmas Compo: Win a Sapphire Radeon 290

UPDATE: We have a winner and a back-up (incidentally, the only two correct answers), both of whom have been informed by email. If you don't have an email, I'm afraid you're out of luck. The answer is Intel's aborted Larrabee graphics project. It was based on ancient Pentium MMX cores, the first ASIC was cancelled as a graphics chip and reappeared as a co-processor branded…

Random-O-Compo: Be An NPC In Krater

Rather appealing-looking post-apocalyptic action-yet-tactical RPG Krater launches next month, and while it's in its final mile (I've got some beta code here I really need to take a look at) there is yet time for IMPORTANT CHANGES. Important changes such as one Rock, Paper, Shotgun reader getting an in-game character named after them (or a name of their choice, Naughty Swears aside) and also having…

ERRORZ AGAINZ! RPS Still Needs Your 503

Last week we asked you to create us a new 503 page for those oh-so rare moments when our site can't find its way onto the internet. We had some lovely entries, our favourites of which are below.

ERRORZ! Compo: RPS Needs Your 503

Rock, Paper, Shotgun is currently working on making some hefty server-side improvements to ensure that the site is as stable as possible. The great news is that any wobbles we've experienced lately have been because there are more people reading the site than ever before, pushing our tech to limits it hadn't previously faced. So we're in the process of upgrading everything that can be…

As mentioned was in Revelation (22.4: And they shall talk rubbish and creak their chairs until Babylon rises and falls).

The RPS Biscuit Charity Drive: The Response

Inspired by IGN offering free office space to indie devs a few weeks ago, RPS launched a funding program for any struggling indie developers who wanted a helping hand. In summary, we offered to send them a biscuit. We're not made of money here at RPS (except John, who is literally a pile of coins), so we were only able to send off one pack…

Win MOW Assault Squad Beta Access

Competition time again, this time via DigitalMindSoft and Men Of War: Assault Squad. While both RUSE and Starcraft 2 have made us rather merry recently, it's actually the newly returning star of Men of War that has made me, personally, most happy. I've raved about it. Twice. Now though Men of War: Assault Squad's beta testing phase, which has kept me amused for countless hours…
