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…

Feature: We done had an Olympics

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…

Feature: From pretty fish to suspicious fizzy pop

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…

Feature: A sweet roundup

I punched a man and chatted to a sad frog in Rezzed’s RPS room

Rezzed is our overlords' yearly games show, but we had our own room there. It was like a big bag of Swedish sweets. Full of colourful goodies that seem recognisable but turn out to be alien versions of the flavours and textures you grew up with. In this room, a puzzle platformer with a cat might seem soft and familiar. But the feline is controlled…

The RPS Sessions livestream today brings more games, devs, and anecdotes

It's almost 11 o'clock, which means it's almost time for the vidbuds to return to their icy vault for another day of livestreaming from EGX Rezzed in the RPS Sessions, powered by XSplit and supported by RIG Gaming and GamesPlanet. They've lined up games and guests across the day, everything from first-person construction in 80s England to action-RPG clicking in ye olde worlde of Warhammere.…

Feature: What are the gang up to today?

Texts From Rezzed: Friday

Everyone's away this morning, all off larking about at EGX Rezzed, basically just playing games and chatting as if any of that is work. I'm at home/work in Scotland so the least they can do is tell me about their holiday. Which is why I've forced that mob to text me updates from their day: what they've played; what they've seen; what they've done; and,…

The RPS Sessions is a wee taster drifting across many of the…

Texts From Rezzed: Thursday

The treehouse is near-deserted today, with almost everyone sacking off work to roll around EGX Rezzed, the London games show organised by our corporate siblings and ourselves. I imagine they're casually playing video games, chatting, eating expensive baked potatoes, barging into rooms declaring "Don't you know who I am?", and generally living it up. Except for Alice L and Matthew, who are somehow hosting a…

No way, mate. Good news! You can watch the RPS video team playing a bunch of the most exciting and/or charming games from the show, live from the comfort of…

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…

Show your custom controller at EGX Rezzed 2019

The RPS custom controller room is returning to EGX Rezzed 2019! Last year, we featured a four-player console where you could change the rules in real-time to thwart your opponents, a game you controlled by spinning a yoga ball, a 16-button game about doing farts and other things, and more. This year? We could feature something you've made. If you're making a custom controller and…

Introducing The RPS Sessions, the best of EGX Rezzed from the comfort of your home

EGX Rezzed fast approaches. Developers put the finishing touches to their demo builds and the tech team nervously eyes the tangled mountain of eight thousand HDMI cables to be unknotted before the event. For those unfamiliar with it, Rezzed is a celebration of all things gaming-related, but with more of a focus on the indie scene than its bigger EGX brother. You should definitely come…

Learn the story behind Hytale at EGX Rezzed 2019

Hytale's development origin is a twist on a common story, as it's being built not just by members of the Minecraft modding community, but by the operators of one specific Minecraft server, the legendary Hypixel. Everything the team learned from running that community is being used to shape the game, which features Minecraft-like survive-and-crafting alongside adventure modes, minigames and a suite of creative tools. This…
