In its place, please enjoy these Pipwick Papers originally posted to the Supporter program on February 28th.Today is for catching up with various fashion weeks and poring over long-neglected feeds.

The Pipwick Papers

[This edition was originally published on 2 Feb]I just got back from the Maltese edition of the Global Game Jam (not to do with RPS work exactly, I was just doing the keynote and being interested in what all the students were up to). There were some neat things and I'll write about them if I get time but in the meantime here are a…

The Pipwick Papers

[This edition was first published on 3 November, 2015]I spent a month focusing almost entirely on keeping up with League of Legends for their World Championship, now it's over and I'm doing that thing where you try and remember what life was like before a big project. Mostly emails, it seems. While I regroup I've been reading up on taxidermy, Reddit Star Wars theorising and…

The Pipwick Papers

I'm writing this from my new laptop. It still feels rather fancy and like I might break anything and everything if I look at it wrong. The first thing I did was try to play what I thought was a game about zebras but then it turned out the be a children's book app with a zebra icon so I deleted the whole thing out…

It is a Sunday and I have just finished the most stressful game of Dota I've played in a long time. I might need a second weekend to properly recover. But while I munch coffee from the jar and attempt to refrain from napping, here are some links to interesting things from this week:

The Pipwick Papers

This Sunday I am enjoying a post-Eurovision gaming session which mostly involves shouting obscenities at Snakebird. On my other monitor is a webcam trained on a bunch of delightfully wobbly walruses. This embed of the latter, plus a bunch of other bits and pieces is after the jump. Have a lovely Sunday.

The Pipwick Papers

I've been absent the last couple of weeks – one sickness and one work trip that took over my week leaving no time for reading outside gaming. Sorry about that. I'm looking at ways to make this a regular thing without it being so affected by external factors and simultaneously not affecting regular work!Here's an accidentally science-themed compendium for you to peruse. This is not…

The Pipwick Papers

It's a grey day today, perfect for my afternoon plans - holing up with a bunch of friends for pen and paper exploits and food - but before I deal with bags of dice and disconsolate dragons here are a few of the fruits of this week's reading.These are not the Sunday Papers:

It's the sort of weekend where the creep of summer becomes noticeable. There are sunny spots to sit in (or to try to block out if they fall on your PC monitor). Here are some bits and bobs to read while you lounge. This is not the Sunday Papers:

The Pipwick Papers

Sometimes you forget that it's Easter Sunday because you've been up late reading Neuromancer and have had weird dreams about a gigantic terrifying crab with a sound system implanted in its legs which terrorises the city and so you are confused by the onslaught of egg puns on Twitter for a few minutes and the weird photos of Lindt bunnies that apparently your friends like…

The Pipwick Papers

Last week I was in Iceland observing the international internet spaceship convention that is EVE Fanfest. It was fascinating stuff but ALAS meant an absence of Pipwick Papers on account of me not looking outside videogames for, like, five out of seven days. This week, however, I've taken a day off and have confirmed that the outside world is still doing things you might find…

The Pipwick Papers

It's time for a weekly wander outside the confines of videogaming to take a look at what all of those OTHER people have been getting up to. Think of this as a Mother's Day bouquet delivery, except the flowers are URLs, you're not my mother and no-one's charging you the best part of twenty quid for emergency last-minute delivery.This is not the Sunday Papers.

As half of RPS swan off to GDC the other half – the good half – remain in the UK, beavering away and looking at links. Like beavers. Beavers who are building a dam out of URLs. I don't know why the beavers would do this instead of using logs. Logs have worked really well for years, beavers. This is a stupid and unnecessary embracing…

It is currently Saturday and I am typing this with tiny T-rex arms on account of going wall climbing earlier because FITNESS. This is a demonstration of my dedication to the Pipwick Papers. This edition has ended up quite biology-focused although that wasn't intentional. Anyway, just think of me as a bird (descended from dinosaurs), flapping about and finding grubs to deliver to your faces.…

Once again we will commence staring outside the sphere of videogames and into the world beyond. A world filled with ice palaces and internet shaming, with emotionally intelligent dogs and with people dressed up as tigers being fake-tranquilised... Think of me as your friendly milkman, except all the bottles are full of web links you can't use in your cereal and I only bother showing…

It seems that enough people liked the Pipwick Papers that I've been asked to do it again. Here are a selection of links to writing, pictures and video which exist outside the realms of games journalism. Think of me as a social media slug, slithering through your letterbox in the dead of night and sliming links all over your hallway carpet.
