What are we all playing this long weekend?

It seems unlikely that we're starting yet another three-day weekend but I am assured that I'm not fired if I don't come in on Monday. So I do trust that it's a three-day weekend. Probably. Unless that's a trap? But wouldn't that be entrapment? We'll see after I/we take Monday off and return in full force on Tuesday. You know what, the only surefire way…

What are we playing this weekend?

We have zero Alices in work today, and everything is collapsing. The life force of the RPS treehouse is drifting lazily out of all the windows, like some sort of JRPG miasma. Without the Alices, we're doomed. Something drastic must be done. Perhaps... yes, here it is. Alice O told me only to use this strange device in an emergency. But if this isn't a…

The weather has fooled me. I've been so busy thinking we're in an endless winter that I didn't see May coming. Now it's May, which means it's almost June. Which means it's almost E3. Where did that come from. I should race everyone to book time off after E3 to recover from working stupid hours on Los Angeles time from Scotland. Agh. As tiring as…

Monday is the belated May Day holiday here in the UK, so we won't be back in full force until Tuesday. We'll be busy dancing around the maypole, drinking real ale, and feeling slightly afraid of Morris dancers. You hey-nonny-nonny near me and I'll kick those bells up your arse. What are you playing this weekend? Here's what we're clicking on!

What are we all playing this Easter weekend?

Thank you and farewell, John Walker. That's him off now, off to a better place to... look, I do still half-suspect it's no accident he's scarpering on Good Friday, but surely even John wouldn't dare to return three days later and declare himself the second coming of games blogging? That's more a Kieron move. This is Easter weekend, whether John rises again or not, so…

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.…
