Hello ad block users: we’ll probably be saying goodbye soon

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.

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.

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…

Hivemind Restored: Welcome Adam Smith

It was a long, interesting process. When RPS put out the appeal for a new writer to plug into the hivemind™, we were never expecting not only the incredible volume of applicants, but the extraordinarily high standards. Over 300 people applied for the position, and in there were many absolutely fantastic candidates. It was not an easy decision by any means, which is partly why…
