To be fair, there is now a public article saying bye to Nate, so the paywalled Letter From the Editor was more of an early access kinda thing.
It was also great to see Rab back, if only for one article, and I notice that there’s an article by Matt Cox on the front page too. It’s kinda nice seeing old faces pop up, though the fact that they never seem to stay around as long as they’d hoped implies that the return on the freelance articles isn’t really enough to be sustainable.
(AFAIK RPS pays reasonable freelance rates by industry standards, but still… )
If we can get enough articles by Sin, Tom Senior, Matt, Nate, Alex Wiltshire, etc… then thats cool.
Though I must say, looking at the recently discovered Authors page, I did have a feeling of “who are most of these people?”
I know Katherine, Alice 1, Alice 2,
Nate, Ed and Imogen.
But Katherine is hardware/Editor and Alice 2 and Imogen are mostly stuck on press release duty, which only really leaves Alice 1,
Nate and Ed.
Ed and Katherine seem mainly into J-RPG type games which aren’t my bag, so… Alice B?
And Graham the wandering enforcer, I guess.
