RPS Asks: Why Are We Sad About Pre-Ordering?

Describe in single words only the good things that come into your mind about... pre-ordering video games. If you were overcome by sadness, don't worry: that's common. Sadness is the primary emotion expressed on social media about pre-ordering games, according to one of Adobe's marketing data arms. Their report is all very wishy-washy, but it can still start an interesting conversation: why do pre-orders make…

RPS Asks: Which Bits Of Games Would Gross You Out To Work On?

There's an interesting piece over on Gamasutra about the effect that working on gross or violent aspects of gaming has had on three different artists and animators. "Gross and violent" in this case means watching colonoscopy videos for corridor design, animating arms being ripped off, and needing to research how bodies drop during a hanging. I'm writing about it here, partly to flag it up…

RPS Asks: What Are Your Hopes For E3 2015?

E3 2015 is a little under two weeks away which means that RPS is, between emailing, weeping and panic-vomiting, excitedly daydreaming about the games we care about: the XCOM 2s, the Fallout maybe-4s, the Deus Ex: Mankind Divideds. What might E3 bring of those games and what surprises might the show deliver? Could a new Hitman game be properly announced? Could Mirror's Edge 2 live…

RPS Asks: What Would You Do With Call Of Duty?

Activision have started vaguely muttering about this year's Call of Duty, which is the first from Cod Blops folks Treyarch on the series' new three-year development cycle. We knew that was happening, and all Activision had to say in an earnings conference call yesterday is that it'll be "loaded with innovation". Right-o. The FPS is now a decade into annual sequels and quite set on…

RPS Asks: Which Games Demand Too Much Time?

I have some pretty big games in my life. They're mostly MOBAs but I'm still trying to make my way through one huge RPG, keep up with Destiny and I made the mistake of picking up Endless Legend just before Christmas. Add in a full-time job and the vaguest semblance of a social life and suddenly any new games which last more than, say, 30…

RPS Asks: What Did You Play Over The Holiday?

Rock, Paper, Shotgun's writers are stumbling about, eyes blinded by the light. What is it that we do here again? What does that button over there do? What's a Twitter? Perhaps you feel similarly. Perhaps you're still finding roast potato crumbs in your pockets and the memories of unfettered gaming in your brain. Share those memories of gaming during the holiday in the comments below.

RPS Asks: About Over-A-Tiny-Shoulder Gaming

For three weeks I've played only two games. I've re-played (for I think the sixth time) the wonderful Flow Free on Android (sometimes I consider converting RPS to an Android site, just so I can wax on about why this game is so exceptional, and why it's distinct from all the other copycat games of the same type), and obsessively looping all three of the…

RPS Asks: What Games Have You Had To Uninstall?

Last week I uninstalled Football Manager 2014. It wasn't for the first time. The problem with Sports Interactive's foot-to-ball games are well documented, but 2014 is the first in the series in over ten years to get its cleats into me. It got to the point that I wasn't being productive in other projects anymore. It got to the point that I wasn't playing other…

RPS Asks: What Did You Play During EGGFEST ’14?

Ancient, rusty engines spin into life. Bleary eyes gaze at inboxes and RSS feeds. The gooey mingled remnants of chocolate and beer are wiped from encrusted chins. EGGFEST '14 has concluded,and the News Cannon must be carefully reloaded before it can unleash a new volley into the skies. While we prepare it, perhaps you'd like to tell us what games you played over the long…

Happy New 2014 Readers!

Oh our goodness, it's 2014. We're all on holiday, together, in a submarine at the bottom of the sea. But that doesn't mean we aren't writing ludicrous numbers of sentences about hundreds of games that are coming out next year. Those will start appearing tomorrow. In the meantime, we just wanted to check all was well with you, and ask which PC games you're most…

RPS Asks: What Are Your Plans For The New Consoles?

This November is a very big month in gaming. It's traditionally the biggest month in the gaming calendar, but this one knocks the others into a hat so cocked it's balancing on its brim. It sees the release of both the Xbox One, and the PS4. That's enormous - previous console releases have been staggered, the PS2 appearing a year and a half before the…

RPS Asks: What’s The Autumn Game You’re Waiting For?

While the publishers are no longer quite as mad as they used to be, saving almost every game ever for October or November, they still remain the biggest months in the gaming calendar. And this Autumn proffers an impressive collection of titles. So which is the one you're most looking forward to? Where do your hopes lie for filling those long, Wintery evenings? And, come…

RPS Asks: What’s Your Bank Holiday Playlist?

Hello everyone. Over here in the land of smashed hard-drives, terrifying tabloids, and warm socks, the upcoming Monday will be a holiday. Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, of Great Britain, Ireland and the British Dominions beyond the Seas, Defender of the Faith, Queen, and mother of four, has seen fit to give us an extra day off. Thanks, Queeny. I think she…

What’s Your Game Of 2013 So Far?

We've got a few things going up today, but as it's National Nap-In-Armchair Day in the UK, things will be pretty quiet. You can do us a favour though, and answer two questions for us: 1) What's your favourite game of the year so far? 2) Are you playing a multiplayer game regularly, and if so is what is it? The same as your GOTYSF?…
