What are we all playing this weekend?

This weekend, we are like a duck: aloof, quizzical, gagging for bread, aggressive to strangers during mating season, and calm on the surface but paddling like hell underneath. PAX East is this weekend in the Americky, and we have a small part in it thanks to sharing parent companies. Then next week is EGX Rezzed, the games show in London which we have a much…

Now I respect the astronomical calendar as much as the next hippy, but it does feel strange to be celebrating the start of spring when six days ago I was swimming down a baltic river in a snowy forest. I suppose that was technically still winter? It was also only six days ago. I'd better revisit It's Spring Again if I'm to understand all this.…

Yeah yeah it's not officially spring until Wednesday but there are enough buds on trees and enough sunny mornings that I'm calling it. Happy first weekend of spring, everyone. Let's all go outside. I've got a swimming road trip planned with pals this weekend, dipping into rivers and falls across Perth and Kinross. Glorious sunshine, thunderstorms, and hail are all forecast, so it'll surely be…

It's almost time for the Game Developers Conference again, kicking off Monday week in the city locals call Sunny San Fran. If you yourself intend to confer on the subject of game development, hey, swing by The Mild Rumpus - the lovely chill zone organised by a group which I am part of but so inactive within I can claim no responsibility for, so I…

2019 seemed to go by awfully quickly, winter giving way to spring then summer whipping through autumn and back around to winter, but here we are in what I can only conclude is 2020. Weird year, 2019, in so many ways. But that's behind us now. My first question: what are your resolutions for 2020? I have one more question, then many answers. What are…

February has traditionally been a time for big publishers to blast their shiny games in unison as if they have no idea the others exist, but this February has really gone wild with vast open-world games. So far we've seen Anthem, Metro Exodus, Far Cry: New Dawn... and who'll ever play any of those when Yakuza Kiwami hit PC too? The rest combined don't have…

Alice is on holiday, so this week it's me, Alice, filling in for Alice. We're deep in the trenches now, the game trenches, the February onslaught of releases. Metro is only just in our rear view mirror, and Brendan is almost a broken man. Anthem is in its bizarre week of early release for people who'll pay for EA's special version of Origins. Apelegs is…

What are we all playing this weekend?

We're getting into that period where all big publishers release their big games at the same time, for reasons that still don't quite make sense to me. Mostly this technique guarantees that the game I most want, I will buy new, then I'll get the others later on sale. Next week alone brings Trials Rising, Civ 6: Gathering Storm, Crackdown 3, Far Cry: New Dawn,…

Snow! How exciting. Amounts may vary across the country but hell, I'm still delighted with yesterday's centimetre. I'm keeping an eye on several webcams around the countryside to see if a big dump lands nearby, then I'll be out the door for a nice long hike stumbling up hills then sliding back down on my botty. What are you playing this weekend? Here's what we're…

I'll not shout this morning because I'm sure you're still recovering from the merriment of Burns Night. Got a little carried away reciting Tam o' Shanter and fell off the chair you were riding like a horse again, did you? Added a touch too much whisky to the cranachan, perhaps? Broke your heart thinking about that wee, sleekit, cowrin, tim'rous beastie and couldn't sleep for…

Remember remember, the nineteenth of January, with gunfire, treason, and- hang on, this must be a misprint in my 'On This Day...' cat calendar. Let's see. Ah! Wikipedia says January 19th, 1986 saw the release of the first IBM PC virus. Sadly that's not in The Malware Museum and Wikipedia doesn't list a catchy song to commemorate the event so I guess we're about done…

Happy Easter, everyone! No sooner is the tinsel down than the Easter eggs are out. Friends, this year I have a hot tip to improve your spring festivities: get Reese's Peanut Butter Crème Eggs. Cadbury Creme Eggs can do one, the sickly slops. Reese's eggs have a nutty joy and, for reasons I cannot fathom, give a gentle burn to the back of the throat.…

So we're back, and we've brought a new year with us. Well, we're mostly back - half the team splurged with holiday days and skipped this week, the dogs. But next week we should be properly back. Say, has this new year inspired you to make any gaming resolutions? I don't work that way myself but I know some people find 'em helpful and satisfying.…

What are we all playing this Christmas holiday?

Ho ho ho! A merry Christmas to one and all. I hope you have a lovely time, or at least get a few days off work. If you don't do Christmas, pardon my exuberance: what I'm mostly excited about is that we've now passed the solstice and daylight will start returning. I have missed daylight so very much. RPS are now officially on holiday until…

Christmas is coming! You haven't bought enough presents yet! The ones you have bought are rubbish! Your family are all going to say terrible things about you behind your back! Auntie Linda thinks you're even more despicable than Cousin Gertrude! Pfft, leave those eggnags to their traditions. You? You deserve to wrap yourself up in a lovely warm videogame. But which one will you be…
