Gamer Network is looking for backend web developers

Since its inception Rock Paper Shotgun has run on Wordpress, a blogging platform built upon the very best web technologies available in 2003. That could soon change with your help. Gamer Network - the corporate overlords that own us, Eurogamer, VG247 and more - are looking for backend web developers to help unify the sites onto a single new platform. If that sounds interesting to…

Meet Dave Irwin, RPS’s new guides writer

Last year, we identified three core areas we want to do more of at RPS: hardware, video, and guides. We'd dabbled in all three previously but hadn't had the chance to fully commit. Last November we hired our hardware editor, over the past six weeks we've hired two video producers, and now we have our first guides writer: please join me in welcoming Dave Irwin…

Meet Matthew Castle, our new video person

A couple of years ago, RPS dipped its toes into YouTube. We asked some of our friends to produce short series for us, and the results were good. It made us realise that what we do could work in video, but also that we'd need a full-time team to do it properly. Now we've hired the first part of that team. Please welcome Matthew Castle…

Say hello to Katharine Byrne, our hardware editor

The hivemind grows stronger! After years of wishing we could expand our hardware coverage, we've finally found the perfect person to help us do it. Katharine Byrne joins us with years of experience and has already set about writing guides, reviews, and educating the RPS team about what all the bits of plastic inside their computer boxes do. Come and share your best welcomes in…

We’ve launched rockpapershotgun.de!

A quick look at our traffic tells me that Germany is currently Rock, Paper, Shotgun's third largest audience. That's a lot of people, and if you're one of them, we've made something for you. It's rockpapershotgun.de! A new site that both translates our articles into German and produces new original work just for German readers.

Check out the new RPS forum

Update: We're aware that some users are having trouble logging in and retrieving their old passwords. We're working on it now and hope to have the 'forgotten password' emails working for everyone shortly. Thanks for the feedback so far! We've already made a bunch of changes to layout and categories as a result, so keep it coming. The new forum is live! Check it out…

RPS OoO: read all the guest posts here

RPS has switched off its out-of-office message, which in reality means the team have left the office and are now on planes and trains heading back to the homes we all work from. Did the team ride the teacups on the pier and sick up all our donuts on Brendan? You'll never find out, because we archived all your emails asking about it without reading…

RPS OoO: please enjoy these posts in our absence

RPS is doing something it almost never does today: we're all meeting up in-person. This is either where we clamber inside a cocoon and emerge at the other side as a more beautiful butterfly, or it's the start of a King Ralph-style comedy where we're all simultaneously killed and Tim Stone ends up running the site alone. I'm not sure which you'd prefer. But relatedly,…

Feature: The future is exciting

PSA: RPS is now owned by Gamer Network

Rock, Paper, Shotgun began in 2007 with a modest goal and in the ten years since has grown and grown, from that first post to a glistening archive of over 33,000, and from four founders working in their spare time to a hugely successful enterprise with seven full-time staff. We achieved our goal, but our ambitions have grown bigger. We want to keep growing and…

PSA: you should change your RPS password, just in case

Last night, content delivery network and security service Cloudflare reported that a security issue means that it's possible they accidentally leaked user passwords for websites that use their service. Since RPS is a user of Cloudflare in the operation of our servers, that means that to be on the safe side you should change your RPS website and forum password. We think it's highly unlikely…
