Each October, Nate disappears right into a puff of smoke to get replaced by his good pal Ghoastus, the Roman ghost. Alas, his yearly ascent to greater realms has sadly come a lot sooner than anticipated this yr, as in the present day is Nate’s final day at RPS – come say goodbye.
Nate joined RPS in April 2019 as our part editor, taking cost of opinions and options whereas additionally drastically enhancing our love and respect for all issues aquatic. I am not kidding after I say our staff #welcometothecrabshow Slack channel won’t ever be the identical once more.
After impressing us together with his intensive review of all the Fallouts (5-75, in case you missed it) and taking us on an epic tour of Dwarf Fortress in his Basement Of Curiosity diary, Nate turned our go-to for technique, simulation and administration video games, and there isn’t any one I belief extra to inform me in regards to the likes of Humankind, Company Of Heroes 3 and Oldworld than him.
He is additionally the particular person I can perpetually depend on to discover the deepest, darkest and weirdest corners of our hallowed pasttime, going the place no different video games author dares to tread. He is written all sorts of great issues for us over time, and there are too many to checklist right here. Within the final yr alone, he is compelled drifters to smoke crack and knife-fight a unicorn in Rimworld, conceived a complete Marvel parody sequence known as Gordon’s Galaxy, delivered arduous hitting journalism about Lady Dimitrescu’s height in penguins, created a nightmare zoo in Planet Zoo, and tailored the entire Handforth Parish Council saga into a video game to call only a few of them.
And let’s not neglect his magnum opus, A Full And True Historical past Of Jason Statham In Video Video games, which you’ll view in full beneath at your leisure.
Other than his spectacular physique of labor, Nate’s been instrumental in relaunching RPS’ Digital Wi-fi Present podcast, co-hosting the weekly pod (and producing his personal bonus episodes for supporters) together with Alice Bee and Matthew (RPS in peace) and taking it from energy to energy. The excellent news is that Nate will probably be persevering with his pod duties going ahead, together with his bonus Nate Information episodes, so you’ll be able to proceed to get your common aural dose of his humourous bants and cavernous pit of lies on all of your favorite podcast platforms.
That is not all, both. Whereas most of Nate’s newfound freedom will probably be taken up writing hundreds extra of his glorious books, he’ll nonetheless be making loads of appearances on the positioning as a freelancer, and we’re presently planning a cool new column for him to tackle as a part of all that. He did swear a blood oath with us, in any case, to be able to elevate Ghoastus from the useless within the first place.
He’ll be taking a small break within the speedy future – taking a well-deserved vacation whereas he will get caught in together with his e book writing – however you’ll be able to count on to see Nate and Ghoastus each return someday in October.
Within the meantime, please be a part of me in wishing Nate all the perfect for the long run by leaping into the feedback beneath and sharing your favorite examples of his work.
