The RPS Social Club Convenes Tomorrow

You, sir or madam, the one with the face; do you like to engage in social activity at but a moment’s notice? Perhaps you are pleased by the idea of meeting with readers of this fine periodical in an establishment well-suited to the enjoyment of light conversation and dark beverages? Or maybe you prefer your conversation dark and your beverage light. All can be arranged. Tomorrow, the RPS Social Club meet in London at their habitual haunt, The Blue Posts. All is discussed on the forums. The week after Rezzed occurs for more social interactions, and if those are both a bit too South, I may arrange a gathering in Manchester this summer provided there is demand for such shindiggery.

Day Z Developers Putting The ‘Z’ In Rezzed

Which way is the pub?

What would a celebration of all things wonderful in PC and indie gaming be without the sensational Day Z mod? Lacking, that’s what it would be. The story of Day Z and its effect on Arma II’s sales is a fascinating one and the experience of playing creates more tension than Alfred Hitchcock juggling chainsaws on a unicycle. Brighton-based Rezzed, powered by Eurogamer and our good selves, shall host Dean “Rocket” Hall and Matt Lightfoot who will run a developer session on Saturday (7th) at 2pm and the game will also be playable on the show floor. Click for tickets and more details.

Have A Randy Old Time At Rezzed

Here he is, trying not to think about jetlag

Excellent news, troops. Reinforcing the ranks of impending PC games show Rezzed – orchestrated of course by Eurogamer and this here website – is lord of the Borders Randy Pitchford. The Gearbox head and former magician whose surname isn’t but should be Pitchfork, veteran of Borderlands, Brothers in Arms, Half-Life: Opposing Force and Ukeday Ukemnay Oreverfay, will take to the stage in Brighton on Friday 6th July at 2pm for a live demo of Borderlands 2, followed by a bout of answering your questions. Randy’s company Gearbox will also be presenting Aliens: Colonial Marines at the show, incidentally, so I guess you could also shout “yeah man, but it’s a dry heat!” at him and he won’t be too confused.

Rezzed Announces Indie Leftfield Collection

Rezzed already has a lineup of playable treats from major publishers but the show wouldn’t have that particular RPS flavour without a generous helping of indie titles. That’s where the Leftfield Collection comes in. The first games confirmed are devious 2D heist simulator Gunpoint, which contains defenestration and projectile trousers, then there’s devious platform puzzler Gateways, which John adored, and the gorgeous duo Trash TV and QRTH-PHYL, which I’ve admired myself. Add explodey adventure McPixel and multiplayer BaraBariBall and there’s something for everyone, and yet still more to come.

Tickets are £12 for one day, £20 for both. Brighton Centre, Brighton on the 6th and 7th of July. Join us. There’s a trailer for BaraBariBall below since we haven’t featured it before and it looks superb, like Super Smash Bros from a superior reality.

Playable Far Cry 3, Shootmania, Ghost Recon At Rezzed


Ah, I was perhaps a bit hasty with my Rezzed story from yesterday, because since then Eurogamer have confirmed that we’re also going to have Paul Wedgwood from Splash Damage doing a keynote presentation (12pm, Saturday 7th July) in which he’ll be talking about how his studio’s independence has ensured its survival.

Not only that but Ubisoft are going to be providing playable Far Cry 3, Shootmania, and Ghost Recon for the show. Add that to the other games, and that’s a veritable slab of unreleased games, as well as all the presentations and so on. We’ve not even revealed the indie games stuff yet, which is another full facet of the show. It’s looking pretty good: Tickets are £12 for one day, £20 for both. Brighton Centre, Brighton on the 6th and 7th of July. Come along, do.

Come To Rezzed In Brighton On July 6th/7th!

Play this!
Comrades! Come and celebrate the rightness of the one true format with us in Brighton in July.

Friday 6th and Saturday 7th at the Brighton Centre will feature presentations from heroes of PC gaming such as Introversion and The Creative Assembly, playable as-yet-unreleased games like Aliens: Colonial Marines and Borderlands 2, and even a 15-minute developer demo of Firaxis’ X-COM title. The RPS men will be there, drinking tea, probably. Or perhaps a refreshing juice. Or coffee in John’s case. He’s almost an American. But never mind that: come, join us! Because there’s a bunch of other stuff going on, too: a quiz, board games, indie games, and some RPS readers’ drinks and gentle chat in the evening at a nearby pub.

It’s called Rezzed, in case you missed that, and tickets are available now, Now, NOW!

Rezzed Announces Talk Of The Future Of Total War

I choose to pronounce it REZ-ZED.

Rezzed, the first PC and indie games show this 6th and 7th July, is adding more and more reasons to make sure you’re there. As if knowing that we’ll be there isn’t enough, last week we revealed that Borderlands 2 will be playable, along with a sweet demo of XCOM: Enemy Unknown to watch. And now we can tell you that Creative Assembly will be there to talk about the future of Total War.

Play Borderlands 2, See XCOM: Rezzed Revs Up

Perhaps you would be mildly interested in seeing the handsome men of Rock, Paper, Shotgun strolling by the sea in Brighton, or perhaps you are more interested in being among the first in the UK to play Borderlands 2? You could also see XCOM: Enemy Unknown in action, with a 15-minute demo being presented by one of the brains behind the game. But where and when do such wonders occur, I hear you ask. The clue’s in the header image. Rezzed, the two-day PC-only show arranged by Eurogamer with assistance from these parts, offers this and much more. It takes place on July 6th and 7th at the Brighton Centre, and tickets are available now.

Carmandgeddem: Stainless Talk Kickstarter At Rezzed

Remember, remember the 6th of Julember. For that is the date that the two-day Rezzed game show, orchestrated by Eurogamer with lots of help from the nerds at Rock, Paper, Shotgun, kicks off in my current home town of Brighton, UK. It’s also my girlfriend’s birthday, which means I won’t be at the show until Saturday July 7th. And that I will very sadly miss the most recently-announced session, Stainless Games talking about how they’re bringing back Carmageddon with the forthcoming Reincarnation, and how/why they’re using Kickstarter to do it. A public chat about crowdsourced game funding only makes sense in these rapid-fire Kickstarted times.

Come To Rezzed, The PC Show We’re Helping Out With

Yes, I am pushing for the afterparty to be called 'Derezzed'

The problem with game shows and conferences is they’re so console-dominated – while PC games are there, they’re often lost behind all those Cliffy Molyneuxs and Medal of Duties. Hurrah then for Rezzed, which is taking place in the splendid seaside city (and my current home) of Brighton, UK this July. It’s a new PC and indie-only show arranged by the goodly folk at Eurogamer – with a big fat helping hand or six from the extra-goodly folk at Rock, Paper, Shotgun.
