Feature: It's evolving!

We’re launching 3 new video series and memberships over on YouTube

Down below the RPS treehouse, through the trap door and deep into the depths of the gaping chasm, lies the RPS video dungeon. You already know this, but what you might not have known is that we’ve renovated the place a little bit. If you pop over to the Rock Paper Shotgun YouTube channel, you'll see our fancy new banner, a button to sign-up to…

Say hello to Imogen Beckhelling, our new news reporter

Say hello to RPS's news reporter! Imogen Beckhelling has joined the team to work alongside Alice O in writing all things news. That includes the kind of daily posts we've always had, covering game releases, big updates and culture stories, but it also means we'll be doing more of the in-depth reporting that we've rarely had the resources to pursue in the past. Come help…

Our Christmas charity stream is over but the fundraiser is still going

For nine hours on Monday, our vidbuds and assorted drop-in staffers hosted a festive fundraiser supporting The British Red Cross Society. They snuck around Hitman 2, competed in a Nidhogg tournament, built a home in The Sims 4, teed off in What The Golf, and it was already off the rails when Nate started a nature tour of Red Dead Redemption 2. The gang raised…

Feature: Get some Chrimbo right up in ya

Tune into our Christmas charity stream today to raise money for British Red Cross

We've got a lot planned today in the RPS Video Dungeon™. Assassinating targets in Hitman 2 while blindfolded, building fantastical houses in The Sims 4 against the clock, the 1st Annual RPS Nidhogg Tournament, and even an RPS video channel fan favourite (for I think two of you and one of your dogs), Reviews Roulette. It's live as we speak, too - or any second…

Brendan is leaving RPS, come say goodbye

I used to email Brendan regularly trying to offer him freelance work, and he'd always be too busy with other jobs. Little by little we got him doing more and more for us, though - a weekly free games column called Free Loaders here, a weekly Premature Evaluation there, a monthly Ridealong, and plenty more besides. Eventually I looked at our list of freelance commissions…

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!

We've posted a lot of job adverts over the past 18 months, for hardware editors and guides writers and video makers. Here's one we haven't posted: RPS is looking for a new staff writer to join our ranks and write fabulous words about PC games. You can leap straight over to the job posting on GI.biz for all the details, or read on for a…

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…

Say hi to our first official weekend editor, Jay Castello

Hey gang, your friendly neighbourhood news editor Alice here, excited to announce that RPS today welcome our first official weekend editor. We've posted 'weekend news' for years but been sliding towards loosening up the format, better reflecting a weekend vibe. Now it's official. You'll still see some news on RPS weekends, but also things that are more critical, more celebratory, less fleeting, more curious... look,…

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…
