Bring RPS back please...
[QUOTE=DeveloperConsol;34681513]Bring RPS back please...[/QUOTE] At least RPS was funny and all.
[QUOTE=Jack Trades;34681541]At least RPS was funny and all.[/QUOTE] Hardly.
I liked RPS. Shacknews seems so bland with the white/blue color scheme and empty layout.
Why is RPS gone anyways?
[QUOTE=TheCloak;34682245]Why is RPS gone anyways?[/QUOTE] Maybe because they made a Garry joke?
Hate how kickstarter only takes credit cards, takes away all my funding.
where did RPS go and what is this shacknews pile of shit
[QUOTE=TheCloak;34682245]Why is RPS gone anyways?[/QUOTE] Because [i]some[/i] people weren't able to just ignore their articles and had to go into every thread to complain about how much they didn't like reading RPS.
[QUOTE=FlyingDog;34682359]Because [i]some[/i] people weren't able to just ignore their articles and had to go into every thread to complain about how much they didn't like reading RPS.[/QUOTE] [I]Fuck[/I] those people.
I'm pretty sure the people who hated RPS were the minority aswell, most people enjoyed the articles i know i did.
[QUOTE=Jack Trades;34682334]Maybe because they made a Garry joke?[/QUOTE] Where?
[QUOTE=Source;34682870]I'm pretty sure the people who hated RPS were the minority aswell, most people enjoyed the articles i know i did.[/QUOTE] I liked RPS aswell, I can't see why people couldn't just avoid reading it if they disliked it so much.
Eh I think Garry's known to overreact to criticism. He totally got rid of avatars when ONE person complained about it I remember. He also banned me for a month for saying I didn't like his iOS game.
Yeah RPS was the best, I have them on my RSS feed.
So do the donators get anything? I like the fact that they are making a sequel but I felt like that donation money could have been used on more helpful things like a charity.
[QUOTE=imasillypiggy;34683092]So do the donators get anything?

A lot of money already goes to charity and I would rather donate money to these developers whom I know will (probably) make something really good out of it

Big shame that they removed Rock Paper Shotgun...
I really liked RPS..

If you donated about $100 you actually get credited in the game or something like that.
if you guys miss RPS so much, then just bookmark them like I did. It's not too hard. [url]http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/[/url]
I don't know what I enjoyed more, RPS articles or the following discussions and debates that stemmed from their articles here. Oh yeah, and shack news are terribly generic. For this I'd read, ugh, Kotaku.
I actually prefer Shacknews as a newsbot since what I expect is quick snippets of gaming news. Not a social commentary of gaming that was usually wrong.
[QUOTE=5killer;34685246]I actually prefer Shacknews as a newsbot since what I expect is quick snippets of gaming news.

Pretty sure this is the news node, and the reason why Shacknews is now the bot and not RPS is because they pretty much exclusively give out news as it is, while RPS was a news [I]blog[/I] and is written more or less with a certain audience in mind. They also do a lot of opinion-related articles, and stuff to try and rally up their fan-base for certain things. I like reading RPS more than Shacknews, but you can't argue that Shacknews is definitaly more "newsy" and quicker with the news than RPS's is. Which is probably why it's the game newsbot now.

[QUOTE=Jack Trades;34681541]At least RPS was funny and all.[/QUOTE] Don't forget those little sentences in the top pictures.
[QUOTE=jechtman;34585936]What is with all the hate with the RPS newsbot? I'm not well versed in the art of news bot functions so I may come off as ignorant, but as a game journalism website it isn't their fault if the news bot catches articles that some members of FP find pointless. Lets try to define the general pros and cons of that website: [i]Pros[/i] [b]*Quality:[/b] Many of us enjoyed the journalism that they shared. [b]*Featured lists:[/b] Whether it was about crazy sales or top 10 something-somethings it was always good to read these, as many found these useful. [b]*Humor:[/b] Sure there were some failed attempts at funny takes on news and game reviews but I for one found that almost all of them that I've read left me laughing afterwards. [b]*Down to Earth:[/b] They are defending your gamers rights, they hate abusive DRM, they don't want corporate control over your internet, all this makes them rather relatable. [i]Cons[/i] [b]*RockPaperNotch:[/b] They caught Minecraftmania a while ago and for the next couple of months most of the articles posted were about Minecraft. Sure a whole bunch of people enjoyed this, but as Notch became increasingly slower with updating the game, as well as taking many unwarrented vacations (plus lazy feature implementations), the members of FP started to resent their pre-purchase of Minecraft. They became betrayed by their trust in Mojang and in so favour of Minecraft declined here. RPS slowed down on the articles about Minecraft but there were still one to two articles posted per day, which began to annoy some of us Facepunchers. It's from this that most of the hate comes from now. [b]*RockPaperBlog:[/b] Many feel that their articles come off as less news and more life stories about games. [i]Newsbots are to blame for giving you these articles, not FPS.[/i] For those that have been on FP for a while will probably remember CsNation, we had a newsbot also ripping articles and reposting them here. It was great, kind've like RPS (without the piss take articles). Until two articles came up. They posted that they had a BIG SECRET that they were going to share the next day (or something along those lines) and people here were torn on what to think about it and caused a lot of talk within the News Node. The next day they revealed what it was... [b]RUMORS OF A COUNTER-STRIKE BETA[/b] Okay, fair enough. They don't post articles just for Facepunch. It is Counter-Strike news and very big news too. It's the newsbot that posted it on Facepunch, not CsNation themselves. But what did the majority of Facepunch think about this? [i]Facepunch didn't like this. Not. One. Bit.[/i] They didn't like the fact that they got pumped up so much, made themselves hyped up for extreme news that they would enjoy, only to find out this big secret is that there are [i]rumors[/i] of Valve throwing CS-Source into a beta program. They bitched about it so much, blinded by their own rage to see how pointless throwing a fit about it actually is, that prompted the Mods and Garry to remove it for the public opinion. Did CsNation do something wrong? No, Facepunch did something wrong, and at this point half mourned the loss of a great newsbot while the other half paraded in celebration. Now the same (similar?) thing has happened. RPS is gone and been replaced with Shacknews and Bluenews. I think Shacknews is okay but I'm willing to bet that Bluenews is a ploy to show you that RPS actually provided content. If this has changed your opinion then please stop bitching about RPS and show support for it coming back, otherwise if you still don't like it then I'm sure you have your reasons. [i]I've re-read the OP and this has been a topic lately.[/i][/QUOTE] Just a little something I typed up in the Ask us about the forums thread.
