Of all the header illustrations I’ve used for WPAPWPAPWTW over the years, Death stepping up to bowl a few overs ↑ is definitely one of my favourites. No one looks happy to be on the business end of Death’s off spin.

While games are still releasing and bursting all over, we’re starting to think and argue about games for this year’s Bestest Best Games advent calendar. Digging up that link has made me re-read last year’s bestest bests and damn, yeah, I’d forgotten about Devil Daggers being the very bestest but I’m still entirely on board with it. I’m bad with these whole ‘time’ and ‘memory’ things so I’m excited to be reminded what came out this year. As if I wasn’t just playing Plunkbat and Isaac anyway.

Remember, remember!
The fifth of November,
The day of the big Tesco shop;
I know of no reason
Why milk, bread, eggs, broccoli, carrots, celery, onions, garlic, spaghetti, halloumi, olive oil, mustard, tea, Horlicks, scourers, toothpaste, face wipes, and Riesen
Should ever be forgot!

Alice is on holiday and she’s taken all the games with her. Luckily some developers released new games after she’d left, so the rest of us still have something to play. Our choices are below, but we want to know from you: what are you playing in this weekend of plenty?

With Halloween events and other spookies, the best season is really heating up. Like a cauldron over a fire. Like the opposite of cooling down like a grave, a cold thing. I don’t know anymore. It’s been a long week.

Shops do take the Michael with seasonal goods, stocking for Easter as soon as Christmas passes and preparing for summer when I still barely see daylight, but I have been quite delighted to see Halloween stuff everywhere. If you have no use for a giant bucket of plastic spiders on October 7th, I don’t know what you’re doing with your life.

Welcome to Saturday, gang. We did it. We’ve reached the weekend. More than that, we’ve reached the end of September. If these distinctions are arbitrary, why are they so exciting?

Alternatively, if you’re reading this on Sunday: pinch and a punch for the first of the month – and no returns!

Welcome to autumn! This is the first weekend of the season, a time to sit on a park bench watching leaves rust and tutting at those which are already falling. A few weeks from now, we’ll be gaily kicking through leafy streets and puffing little clouds of steam. A few days after that, we’ll be unleashing big steamy puffs as we cuss up a storm at the damn fool sodden leafmash that made us fall on our jacksie.

Bad news, gang: this is the last weekend of summer. Good news, everyone: autumn is almost here! Dig in your wardrobe for your scarves, dust off your wooly hats, and remember that there’s still time to rush out and strip off to soak up the dregs of the sunshine.

Oh good grief, it’s Saturday? After the #topbants and travel of the RPS summit down in Brighton (do read all the great guest posts from our out-of-office reply), I had thought today was… Tuesday? Thursday? Not the weekend. But it is! This meant I entirely forgot to ask everyone their weekend playplans.

Monday is a holiday for us here in the RPS treehouse (and across much of the UK) so we won’t be back in full force until Monday Tuesday [Yes, I know – this is why the extra day is a divine gift -ed.]. Just think what we might all do we an extra day off! Wait, no need to think – we could simply tell you.

Here’s a game I call Reboot, Remake, Rip Off. It works like Flip, Marry, Kill but with video games and without putting your genitals near anything, being more about which of the options you would most like to see rebooted, remade, and widely copied from, yeah? Let’s start with some neglected first-person shooters.

Reboot, remake, rip off: Red Faction, F.E.A.R., and Sin?

Answers and arguments in the comments, gang.

Happy International Youth Day, everyone! If you too believe the children are our future, celebrate today by giving a youth you know what you would’ve wanted at their age: someone to talk to, someone who listens and believes them without judging, plus twenty Silk Cut and a bottle of WKD Blue.

The Internet informs me that today is Sandcastle Day, Work Like a Dog Day, Disc Golf Day, Mustard Day, Oyster Day, Mead Day, and Underwear Day. These being well-recognised days we all celebrate, we’re in for an interesting weekend. But wait, it gets better: Sunday’s festivities include International Sailor Moon Day, Psychic Day, and Friendship Day. What a weekend!

Back when I worked for a multiplatform site, folks used to talk about “the summer lull”. These wonderful months were a period to be dreaded, a period when few games are released and there’s little to play. It’s quite nice I can now be entirely oblivious of any supposed lull, with a bazigillion games out on PC all the time and so very, very many good ones always to catch up on. Not one single game could be released for a year and I’d hardly notice. Really though: it’s summer, go outside.
