The Electronic Wireless Show – IGF Special #1: Sci-fi

It’s time to use to our radio voice. The RPS Electronic Wireless Show has historically been our not-very-regular podcast where we gather to tell each other how wrong we are about videogames. But this month it has mutated into something different. In the lead-up to this year’s Independent Games Festival, we interviewed a whole bunch of developers, all of whom have been nominated for some kind of award this year. We’ll be talking to them about sex, politics, and other things we’ve never understood.

In part one, we’re talking science fiction with the makers of Duskers, Quadrilateral Cowboy and Event[0]. Click onward to listen here, or find it on Soundcloud directly.

The Rock, Paper Shotcast Episode 5: Drunk On Tums

Another satisfied listener

Back once again for the renegade PC games blogging masters. Adam, Alec, Jim and John gather in one virtual place to talk about Diablo III, nu-XCOM, Game of Thrones, illness, Greece, The Call of Duty Company, EA and Kickstarter, their own massive ignorance, Goebbels and the mecha-Queen of England.

Edit – 60s-style hard-panned recording now replaced with a mono/centred one for your less psychedelic enjoyment.

The RPS Electronic Wireless Show Episode 51

In episode 51 of the RPS Electronic Wireless Show, Jim and John catch up on the events that have taken place in the week since we last recorded. Events like the release of some games, and some games we have played. Those are the events we experience in our lives.

There’s chat about how great Tim Stone is, Jim’s racism against cat people, and we ponder why RPS readers like RPGs so much. John explains why he hates Modern Warfare 3 so much, while Jim moans about BF3’s doors. There’s thoughts on how open we really want our worlds to be, and then, perhaps not surprisingly, we turn to Skyrim. We talk Skyrim’s structure, exploration, quests and peculiarities.

RPS Electronic Wireless Show E3 Special

VISUAL IMAGE! Design me a better one, please.

Blimey, here’s a surprise. Dusting off our podcasting tools, John and special guest Dan Griliopoulos gather in a noisy restaurant to discuss what they’ve seen at E3 so far. Not only do you get to hear about Skyrim, Battlefield 3, Tomb Raider, Hitman, Deus Ex, Serious Sam 3, Payday, Torchlight 2, Saints Row: The Third, DUST 514, Dead Island, Batman: Arkham City, and many more, but also find out what they order, and then hear how long it takes to arrive! Hear the conversations of the neighbouring tables. Hear when Dan drops a knife on the dictaphone. Never hear anything else again.

RPS Electronic Wireless Show Episode 47

logo logo LOGO!

Goodness and crikey, Jim and John have recorded an RPS Electronic Wireless Show. As mentioned was in Revelation (22.4: And they shall talk rubbish and creak their chairs until Babylon rises and falls).

We’re not the sort to let themes trouble us, and as such the discussion covers dreaming, Keith Olbermann, and fancy dress costumes. There’s also an exclusive competition to win a rare prize!

The RPS Electronic Wireless Show 46: Angry!

Well, Rage-y. id Software’s Tim Willits faces a panel of RPS readers (the same ones who fired teeny quiz missiles at Splash Damage’s Ed Stern last week) to talk Rage.

And only Rage. Honestly, when I set this up I presumed those guys would want to ask a bunch of stuff about Doom and Quake and Wolfenstein and Commander Keen. But nooooooooooooooo, they only wanted to know about the shiny new thing. FINE. You know what? FINE.

The RPS Electronic Wireless Show 45: Stern!

Indeed. It is true. We’ve put our mouths in front of a microphone and made noises at it once again. Only not very much this time, I’m afraid. Instead, the bulk of the larynx-gymnastics originate from Splash Damage’s Senior Game Designer Ed Stern, who’s behind most of the words and a whole lot of other things in Brink.

Also making vocal appearances are a cartel of RPS readers who attended the recent Eurogamer Expo, at which this chat was held. They had questions. They asked them. Ed answered. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. Many Bothans died.

If that still isn’t enough mumbly Britvoices for you, you’ll be glad to hear RPS’ Alec Meer (I hate that guy), Quintin Smith and Karen Gillan or someone were also in attendance, chiming in with matters relevant, string-related or just plain rude.

The RPS Electronic Wireless Show 44

It’s Christmas in September! During the RPS summit yesterday the lot of us somehow found time in our packed schedule of shouting and dueling to do a podcast, making this the first RPS Electronic Wireless Show to feature five whole RPS writers. Hopefully hearing all five of us speak at the same time will finally dispel the rumours that John Walker is a character created and voiced by Kieron, Kieron is nothing but a fiction written by Alec Meer, and that I am a figment of John’s imagination. Download the podcast here, subscribe to it via RSS here, or get it on iTunes from here, abstractly, except it’s still not updating for no discernible reason. You can manually add the RSS feed to Itunes though, which works perfectly. Meticulous timetabling of our conversation follows…

Abstractly you can subscribe onon iTunes here, but it appears to be broken now. Oh noes! A breakdown of what we cover follows…

Don’t call it a comeback. Okay, do. With Quinns’ recent move to London, Kieron and he decided to gather in an office and mumble at one another. And then record it. And then share it. You can download it directly from here, subscribe to it by RSS with this, or get it on iTunes from here. And breakdown of what we cover follows…

The RPS Electronic Wireless Show 41

Can it really have been so long? It seems so. It’s episode 41! Jim and John gather once more to discuss matters of gaming, philosophy, and quite how tired everyone is. We’re all so tired. Enjoy John’s croaky voice, Jim’s pretty hair, and thoughts on shooters, Macs and the lack of gossiping murderer-based games. Plus bonus exclusive interview with Zombie Cow!

The RPS Electronic Wireless Show 39

Hurrah!

The RPS Electronic Wireless Show 38

Anyone who reads alt-text fancy creating us a new logo?

Jim and John gathered together aboard the RPS yacht to put right all that is wrong with everything that’s ever happened in the universe. Eschewing tweets in episode 38, instead we spoke about the contents of our head, from Mass Effect 2 and dreams of a different BioShock, to DRM and the peculiarities of mining in MMOs.

The RPS Electronic Wireless Show 37

Anyone who reads alt-text fancy creating us a new logo?

Jim and John had stretched the elastic that joins them as far as it would reach, causing them to be flung back together, landing in front of a microphone. So a podcast was recorded. It’s another Twitter-driven special, after last time’s monster-stomach-set Twitter isolation. Discussed are matters of Neptune’s Pride, procedural worlds, game pricing and gamepads.

The RPS Electronic Wireless Show 36

Hullo. So I burped, and there was this podcast. It appears John and Jim were lucky enough to have been holding onto their recording equipment when I ate them. Kieron and Alec were off on some expedition through my duodenum at the time, so I understand. With the new year here they seem to have focused on reflecting on 2009, and looking forward to 2010. As well as their meandering.

The RPS Electronic Wireless Show 35

There is yabber in the world again. A week or so back, Quinns and I got together and did a podcast. It’s now available. We did over Skype, however, so while Kieron’s new mic was being in oddly good form, Quinns’ was a bit off. We decided to take up the offer of one of the people who’ve said they’d do some processing for us. Mr Hockel had a tweak, and we praise him with choirs of Ursine-Angels. It sounds splendid to me, generally, with the bigger problem more Quinns leaning back too often. And me too, for that matter. Man, our mic technique is rubbish. Anyway – you can get it directly from here, subscribe via RSS here or Itunes here. And for a break down of what we talk about, please find below…

The RPS Electronic Wireless Show 34

Imagine if we had a better podcast logo than this one. YOU CAN'T, CAN YOU?

NO YOUR EYES DO NOT DECEIVE YOU. The Rock Paper Shotgun Electronic Wireless Show returns, and in triumphant fashion. (If you understand “triumphant” to mean, “two men with coughs chatting for 45 minutes”.) Led by the guiding hands of your tweeted remarks it’s the only discussion of PC gaming you’ll ever need! (Only as part of a PC gaming discussion controlled diet.)

RPS Electronic Wireless Show L4D2 Special

It's special.

While wandering the long, barren corridors of Valve HQ I stumbled upon Chet Faliszek and Erik Wolpaw, the two men who a few years ago made up the members of Old Man Murray. Bundling both of them into a big sack I carried them into a room packed with buzzing PCs and forced them to join in on a podcast to discuss the release of Left 4 Dead 2. You can listen to the results below.
