It's Colm Ahern, former editor and video star of VideoGamer. Please join me in wishing him a warm welcome in the comments below - and read on for some more team news.

Farewell, Astrid Johnson

Like sands through the hourglass, so are the staff of the Rock Paper Shotgun video team. After nine months in the moving image mines, Astrid is leaving to return to life as a freelancer. You may still see her name around these parts in the months and years to come, but for now, join me in saying so long and good luck.

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 you've…

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!
