Feature: For the greater good

Podcast: the worst villains ever (by which we mean best)

This week the podcast talks bad, meaning good, and if we say a villain is bad then we mean they are not good, but bad. Make sense? Of course it does! Yes, we're talking about some of our favourite villains in PC gaming. Some interesting topics come up, including the utility of different kinds of villain, what kinds of villain are good, and whether Dr…

Feature: If it's not good enough to be a 7, it's an 8

Podcast: here’s to the glorious 7s

This week the Electronic Wireless Show celebrates the 7/10 game. Yes, we know RPS doesn't have scores but the 7/10 is as much a feeling or a way of life. It's those games that are a bit jank at the same time as being a bit genius, the ones that you love even though they're a bit rough around the edges. Plus: more fish anecdotes,…

Feature: 100% podcast

Podcast: Episode 100, in which we finally hand out review scores

Rock Paper Shotgun doesn't do scores - until today! For a very special episode 100 of the Electronic Wireless Show, we've decided to finally ditch coherent critical analysis in favour of the comforting certainty of math(s). Over the course of the episode, Matthew, Nate and special guest host Graham (hi) assign numerical scores to 100 games, and then average out the results to deliver a…

Podcast: not-E3 best bits from the PC Gaming Show and Guerrilla Collective streams

This week we're being vaguely topical! Imagine that. Today, because we've come through what we might call phase one of the not-E3 livestreams (with phase 2 starting this weekend with the EA stream and the Steam Game Festival) we decided to behave like proper games journalists. We pick out some favourites and standouts from the Guerrilla Collective streams and the PC Gaming show - links…

Fantastical action-RPG No Place For Bravery is out early next year, gets blood all over its trailer

No Place For Bravery was revealed an entire four years ago, which is a long time, as it goes. NPFB (if you'll allow me an inelegant abbreviation) has shyly peeked around the PC Gaming Show curtain with a new trailer. Alice0 remarked on the sense of terrible scale on display when it was first announced, and though that hasn't changed, a few other things have.…

Feature: Listener beware, you're in for a scare

Podcast: June Halloween special

This week we got an email from listener Tom from Melbourne, who suggested that it would be fun for us to talk about the scariest games we've all played. Would it, Tom? WOULD IT? What sort of pervs enjoy being afraid? Well, many people, obviously, so we thought Tom's suggestion was a good one. A lot of games come up, from The Evil Within to…

Feature: We have one demand and one term

Podcast: our most wanted games this summer

The big physical summer expos all got cancelled, but instead we have a whole load of great digi-vents to replace them. Looking at the schedule, it seems the Summer Of Games is going on until approximately next January. We're in a bit of a hopeful mood for this week's podcast, so the gang discuss their most anticipated upcoming releases, as well as their most anticipated…

Feature: Toss a cake to yer Witcher

Podcast: happy birthday, Geralt of Rivia!

Technically it should be happy birthday to The Witcher 3, but it's always better to put a face to an event, don't you think? Yes, this week we all celebrated the fifth anniversary of CD Projekt's most favoured baby (until later this year, at least). Join Alice Bee, VidBud Matthew and Nate as they discuss how Geralt would do on Come Dine With Me, if…

Feature: Back with a bang

Podcast: the triumphant return, and Gears Tactics vs XCOM: Chimera Squad

We've been away from podcasting for a while, ever since Bungus Humongous (who used to record and edit it) fell off his skateboard and exploded into a pile of coins. But now we're back! And because we all need a chat with mates at this difficult time, we're just having a nice chat about the games we're playing every week. This time: Gears Tactics vs.…
