Feature: Five mice entered, one remains...

The RPS Readers’ official Favourite Gaming Mouse of 2019 is…

Last week, I asked you what's your favourite gaming mouse? Hundreds of mice came squeaking at our doors, but only five were strong enough to break into our voting arena. All of them hailed from the ranks of Razer and Logitech, and now, after a weekend of duking it out inside our specially prepared battle royale cage, one has emerged victorious. That mouse is the…

RPS Asks: Vote for your favourite gaming mouse

Earlier this week, I asked you what's your favourite gaming mouse? and you answered that call in your droves. Thank you! There were a lot of votes to tally, but having counted them all up I now come to you with another question. Five mice have emerged as your runaway favourites, but which one is truly the bestest best gaming mouse of all? Vote now.

RPS Asks: What’s your favourite gaming mouse?

We all have our favourite gaming mice. For me, it's a toss up between the Logitech G Pro Wireless and the ever so lovely Roccat Kain 120, both of which have been sitting proudly atop my best gaming mouse rankings ever since I tested them earlier in the year. But chances are that there's a piece of plastic gripped between your clawed fingers that just…

RPS Asks: What’s in your Christmas haul?

There was a time when I'd have been absolutely gutted if I hadn't found at least a couple of games underneath the Christmas tree, but now that my entire collection is digital, I'm more likely to find a gift in my inbox or Steam account than under any trees. This is good – it prepares me for a future without either gifts or trees. I…

RPS Asks: do you restart games you haven’t finished?

I've played a million beginnings and around a thousand endings, or at least that's how it feels. Imagine having seen the first act of Romeo and Juliet a hundred times but never having seen how it ends. That's my experience with all manner of games, from big story-driven RPGs to some of my favourite strategy epics. I've founded so many starter cities that have never…

Feature: Do you fear hundred hour epics?

RPS Asks: Are Long Games Appealing Or Intimidating?

The Witcher 3 [official site] is the longest game I've played for years, or at least the longest game that I've actually come close to completing. There was a time when I'd be thrilled to hear about a new fifty or sixty hour epic adventure, very much subscribing to the policy “the more the better”, but now I'm more likely to flinch away from the…

What Game Did You Want To Like But Couldn’t?

I used to record a podcast, at the end of which we'd take questions submitted by listeners. Somewhere early on we were asked the question, "What game does everyone else seem to like, that you wanted and tried to like, but bounced off?" We then spent the next two years ignoring the question as it was submitted again and again, by people who presumably did…

RPS Asks: What Was Your Favourite Game This Month?

We're not even at the halfway point and 2016 is already one of the best years for PC gaming that I can remember. XCOM 2 and Darkest Dungeon already seem like distant memories, and this month alone we've had Kathy Rain, Stellaris, DOOM, Salt and Sanctuary, Overwatch and Total War: Warhammer. Today there's another Hitman episode incoming and after the joy of Sapienza, I can't…

RPS Asks: Have You Ever Smurfed? If So, Why?

Reading through the new Ask Riot thingummy where Riot employees will address common League of Legends [official site] questions, the very first question looks at the practice of smurfing. This is not the process of dying yourself blue and donning a Phrygian cap as some sort of pre-game ritual (although I now have a new feature idea - GRAHAM!).

Feature: RPS Asks: What is a microtransaction?

The Division Won’t Have Microtransactions, Depending On Your Definition

What defines a microtransaction? How micro is "micro", and does the name refer to the size of those payments, the location you make them from, or the nature of the goods you're buying? That's the quandary raised by Ubisoft. A community manager tweeted that "There will be no microtransactions, and definitely no P2W" in their new online shooter, The Division. This was simply repeating an…

RPS Asks: Is Your Competitive Streak Fading With Age?

I did spend a chunk of this morning gloating about how I was smashing Adam's Devil Daggers times but, by and large, competitiveness is rare for me now. As I settle into my thirties, my days of jostling for frags are behind me, and I haven't been passive-aggressive to Dota teamies in yonks. TELL THEM, PIP. Anyway. According to a recent report, this is common,…
