Gamer Network is hiring for a new tabletop site

RPS used to have a boardgame column and we still regularly get people asking if they can write about tabletop games for us. There will soon be a better location for that kind of work, however. Gamer Network - the corporate overlords of RPS, Eurogamer, GamesIndustry.biz, and more - are launching a tabletop website and YouTube channel. They're now hiring for all sorts of roles…

We’ve increased our freelance rates, so come write for us

As John carefully detailed before his departure, RPS was founded by four freelance writers who were frustrated by the falling rates they were being paid. Though those founders are gone, almost all those of us left behind (abandoned, dirty, grieving) were freelance ourselves at one point or another and have dealt with the same frustrations. So here's a thing: we're increasing our freelance rates. If…

Feature: A thing you should definitely do

How to pitch an article to Rock Paper Shotgun

Hello! We regularly receive pitches from freelance writers. Many of these pitches are excellent, many of them are bad, and many more forget to include the article idea and just yell at us at length for stopping them from ad blocking on the site. If you're interested in pitching an article of your very own to us, read on, as we're about to explain how…

Thank you and farewell, John Walker

I have a lot of conversations with a lot of people about what RPS is, and after years of trying to sum up this dumb website, I've settled on using the same answer each time. I say: ask ten people to describe what RPS does, and you'll get ten different answers. One will say we're that website which writes silly, in-jokey nonsense about PC games.…

Say hello to Nate Crowley, RPS’s new full time features writer

Much like a football manager (I assume), we here at RPS are always on the look out for fresh talent, especially if that talent a) is a very good features writer and b) you all really liked them and took to the comments to say they were good. So it is my distinct pleasure to reveal that we have hired Nate Crowley full time!

EGX Rezzed 2019: Join us at the RPS Mixer in association with Fishing Cactus

EGX Rezzed is the UK's loveliest gaming event, attended by gaming's loveliest people - and also the staff of RPS. That's why every year we hold the RPS Mixer, as an opportunity for all those lovely people (and also the staff of RPS) to hang, to chat, to prattle and jabber. This year is no different: we've teamed up with developers Fishing Cactus to hold…

Listen to indie devs share their secrets at EGX Rezzed

EGX Rezzed is filled with indie games, which means it's also filled with indie game developers. It'd be foolish of us not to trap some of those developers onstage and make them share their secrets. That's what Rezzed Sessions are all about: giving you a peek at how games are made and how you might do it yourself, from the graft of starting a studio…

The RPS Advent Calendar guessing game is underway for 2018

Also every year in December, the Advent Calendar Guessing Game is organised by the fabulous members of the RPS forums, in which readers of RPS trawl through our reviews, features, Twitter…

Hello ad block users: we’ll probably be saying goodbye soon

Over the the past year, we've been showing a message to those of you who use an ad blocker. This message basically says, "Hey, could you not?". It then offers a few options: whitelist RPS in your ad blocker, become an RPS supporter to get access to an official ad-free version of the site, or ignore the message and continue reading the site anyway. We…

Faeria is now free to members of the RPS Supporter Program

We've just added another game to the RPS Supporter Program. If you're already a supporter (or if you sign up now), you'll get access to a key for Faeria, the collectible card game that Brendan's review says is "more interesting" than vanilla Hearthstone and "many times more thoughtful than Duelyst." Read on for more details.

Welcome to the new Rock Paper Shotgun

Hello! Why yes, something has changed - thank you for noticing. We're so excited to finally show you our new-look website. RPS's design hasn't changed much over the past five years, and in the five years before that it never received much more than an occasional nip and tuck. The result was a website design that we loved like an old friend, but which didn't…
