Reigns: Her Majesty swipes right to December 7th

Nerial's Reigns was such a lovely surprise. An utterly unique take on role-playing that worked a little like King of Dragon Pass mashed up with Tinder. Slipping gracefully into your role as King, a procession of courtly visitors sidled up on your PC or mobile phone screen, and you swiped left or right to answer their queries and requests with either a positive or negative slant. Simple, but…

I think it's okay - did some noise-reduction and leveling which seems to polish it up,…

The RPS Electronic Wireless: Leigh Alexander!

We've been promising this for a while, but I've finally managed to go through and edit this. It's still fifty minutes recorded when I was off in New York for NYCC and crashing overnight at game journalist dynamo Leigh Alexander's Brooklyn apartment. At near midnight, after hitting a bar somewhere, whilst drinking some manner of whiskey. We mainly focus on Leigh's background in games and…

Red Alert 3 Trailer Analysis: “War and Boobs”

You may have noticed that with Red Alert 3 EA are pressing the button marked "Sex" as if it were a magical device which ejaculated streams of money. Which it may well be. Now that they've actually released details of the full cast, being a serious games site, I thought it of critical importance we analysed whether by spending such tall-dollars they've managed to succeed…
