Play WildStar With The RPS Community Guild

We. Are. Your friends.

Hello, dear reader. You may think of us here at Rock, Paper, Shotgun as your cherished aunts and uncles, and we want you to know that you’re our most favourite nibling. But you can’t keep hiding behind our legs at family gatherings, arms wrapped around our knees, whenever one of your cousins comes by. You should play with them. Go on. They’re nice. You’ll like them. We’re certain you’ll all have a lovely time together.

Now that WildStar has opened up ‘head start’ access ahead of tomorrow’s launch, your RPS cousins have formed a community guild to play together. Go on now, dear.

Good Luck, Planetside 2 Players!

Unusual competitive gaming news: Our beloved Planetside 2 community is in for the fight of its life this evening, as it faces one of the best clans from their home server of Miller in a Planetside Community Clash match. You can examine the competition brackets over here, where you can see that the team’s opponents are an NC outfit called “The Jesters”, who hail from the Cobalt server. No idea if we’ll get completely flattened, or heroically win the day, but either way it should be interesting to watch.

And you can watch the match tonight on Twitch tonight at 2000 UK, if you’d like to lend support. Good luck, all.

Come Play Planetside 2 With Us On Sunday!


Hello you. We’re going to be running about in Planetside 2 (it’s free and awesome!) from about 7.30pm UK on Sunday 9th on Miller. We’d love for you to join us, and the RPS Planetside community will once again be making heroic efforts to enable an entertaining evening for all involved. You’ll need to get on the RPS community Mumble to get involved, as the whole thing will be co-ordinated via the marvelous technology of voice communication. Don’t worry, you won’t need a mic to get involved, just the ability to hear the command folk saying where you should go for victory/death. You can find out plenty more about the community PS2 activities over here on the forum.

See you on Sunday!

You Can Play Games With RPS Readers


The RPS reader – a discerning, beautiful creature raised by feral desktop machines in the jungles of the internet before being discovered by a pipe-smoking explorer in 1956 – likes to play videogames in the company of like-minded gamers. It was to this end that we erected the fantastical edifice know as the Game Clubs And General Sociability Ok forum. It is this distinguished public space in which you can find your way to games of Terraria, SWAT4, Warframe, Battlefield 3, Neptune’s Pride, Dominions, Arma, Guild Wars 2 and numerous others. The world is your oyster, where – for the sake of this figure of speech – oysters represent various possible multiplayer gaming opportunities.

Go play! And perhaps visit the RPS Steam group, should you be so inclined.

Hello! Come Play Games With The RPS Community


While we seem to spend our time reading and reminiscing, we’re actually a site about playing games, and not just alone in a room in the dark, but alone in a room in the dark connected to the internet of people! Yes, there’s loads of them, and they play things as diverse as Dominions 3, and Mechwarrior Online. Yes, there are subforums and threads for many things – games you can join in on. Games like Guild Wars 2, or Battlefield 3, SWAT 4, or even racing games. Yes, even them. There are many others. So jump in. Join in. We’ll be waiting.

(There’s even a Steam group!)

Come And Play Planetside 2 With Us!


Yes, that’s an order. We’re going to be doing a big old call to arms on the Miller server on the 16th. The last couple of these have been completely fantastic, with hundreds of RPS readers working together in multiple platoons to set the various continents on (purple) fire. It’s a Sunday evening this time, too, which should make things easier for many. You’ll need to be able to listen in on our Mumble voice comms to participate.

And if you are playing NC or TR, well, bring it on.
