Four years ago we made a video called 12 Evil Achievements For Heartless Bastards, which focused on the sort of achievements that moustache twirling ne'er-do-wells would be happy to display on their gamercards. Now, four years on, we have 13 more achievements that you should feel good and guilty about owning.
The Entertainer is Hitman's 26th Elusive Target, and the final Elusive Target of the game's first season: a man who goes by the name "Mr. Giggles" but is much less jolly than that makes him sound. He's the face-tattooed ringmaster of an underground circus that features dogfights, bare-knuckle fighting and, if we don't do something to stop him, pandas apparently eating each other. Hit the jump to watch us track him down in the busy Marrakech night market and steal his nefarious client list in this Hitman gameplay.
Once a fighting game character makes their debut, they usually stick around in that fighting game series. But some characters prove to be so weird, unpopular or tangled up in licensing issues that they make one appearance and are never seen again. Here are seven of our favourite one-shot fighting game characters who were never invited back for round two.
After all the gatling gun train missions down in old Mexico, we finally catch up to our old gang mates Bill Williamson and Javier Escuella. Will we show mercy or shoot them in the crotch as many times as our current dead eye level will allow? Watch and find out!
PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds is like Battle Royale: The Game, dropping 100 players from a plane into an open world then seeing who survives the longest. Among its many attractive features are a shrinking map that forces players closer together, driveable vehicles, and the phrase 'winner winner chicken dinner', which is sadly just a figure of speech and not a genuine hot meal. There are plenty of other actual delicious chicken dinners in games, at least, as we discover later in the show.
When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, and I believed these urban legends like a child. Now we've put away childish things, join us to reflect on these videogame urban legends we wholeheartedly believed when we were kids, back when bigger kids could convince us they were true because they had uncles who worked at Nintendo.
Jason returns! We're back in Friday the 13th and Mike has a shot at his bloody revenge as supernatural serial murderer Jason in this Xbox One gameplay. Who will get put on a coathook? Who will get trapped in his own trap? And where the hell are the car keys? Watch and see.
Hitman's Contracts mode is a list of missions designed by other Hitman players. In this particular contract, our hit is on behalf of a hairdresser fed up with a group of people playing music loudly during what they describe disapprovingly as "weed parties", because this hairdresser is apparently also my mother. To send a message, they want 47 to murder the group using scissors, which seems like a bit of an overreaction, but hey, it's their money.
It's Marston Monday and we're still in Mexico in Red Dead Redemption. Our patience for John's tolerance of the army is starting to wear thin, what with Coronel Allende kidnapping a bunch more women and cackling about how he's going to kill their families. On the plus side, Allende says he's captured Williamson and Escuella for us and has them tied up in a church in Chuparosa. Watch on to discover if that is the trap it most definitely sounds like.
In Dead by Daylight one player is a supernatural serial killer while four others are regular chumps trying to not get murdered in a series of arcane trials. In these, the killer must sacrifice victims to the mysterious trans-dimensional Entity for which they work. That's just one of the eldritch abominations you don't want to wind up as your manager, as Show of the Week discovers.
When stealth is done right, it's a gratifying test of your skill and focus. When stealth is done wrong, it's more irritating than a mosquito in your room at 3AM asking to borrow a tenner. Bear with us while we vent about the stealth sections that boiled our blood.
Mike plays a lot of racing games, but he's never been catapulted to 60mph from a standstill in under 4 seconds. So with Forza Motorsport 7 and Porsche at the Goodwood Festival of Speed it was time to remedy that. Watch on for Mike pulling some entertaining faces as his body is wracked by G-Forces.
In this Friday the 13th gameplay on Xbox One, we are teen counselors stalked by supernatural serial killer Jason Voorhees, striving to repair a car and escape Jason's hunting ground. Who will find the car keys? Who will survive? Who will be sacrificed as Jason bait? Watch and see, why not.
Hitman's 25th Elusive Target is The Fugitive, an internationally wanted criminal who has booked into the Gama facility in Hokkaido, Japan for facial reconstructive surgery. That's going to make identifying him tricky, what with the new face and all, but Diana is on the case and will be feeding us info as we go.
In contrast to last week's adventures in Mexico spent helping out the rebels, this week's Marston Monday sees us take the side of the army. This is a decision we immediately regret when said army starts executing people with firing squads and burning down villages. Let's hope Luisa doesn't find out.
Hope County in Montana is the setting for Far Cry 5, and it might once have been a relaxing vacation spot, but thanks to doomsday cult Eden's Gate and their psychotic leader Father Joseph Seed, things have taken a turn for the murdery. At least you can still go fishing and, as we find out later in the show, fishing in videogames is infinitely better than fishing in real life.
Many a hero has a past so chequered only a convenient spot of memory loss can hide their darkest secret from you, the player, while keeping them, the protagonist, from spending a whole game wracked with guilt. Remember, if you can, these times amnesia made you forget your terrible deeds until, ooh, act three or thereabouts.
Could this be the most ambitious game ever? Beyond Good and Evil 2 promises gameplay that stretches from the sci-fi interiors of buildings all the way to the stars. Here are the eight things you absolutely need to know about this extremely intriguing game.
Mario and Luigi make our hit list in Hitman contract Super Sibling Rivalry, in which Agent 47 must whack the colour-coded plumber brothers in the Italian town of Sapienza. For maximum Hitman points, you must kill Mario dressed as Luigi and Luigi dressed as Mario, with an explosion. See if Hitman Mike can pull it off in this Hitman gameplay.
Marston Monday returns! We continue our adventures south of the border, flitting between helping out the Mexican army and helping the rebels as the mood takes us. This week we're on the side of the rebellion as we ride to the aid of Luisa, who needs her jerk boyfriend and revolutionary leader Abraham Reyes rescued from an army firing squad. By the end of the episode, we wish we'd have left him there.
The recently announced Evil Within 2 continues the story of the first game, which revolved around STEM: a system that allowed people to enter a network of linked minds. Our first question is why people would want to, as it appears to be all rivers of blood and barbed wire zombies. We have other questions as well though, as you'll discover later in the show. Beware spoilers for the original Evil Within.
What kind of world do we live in, when it's rarer to find a clean, intact bathroom than it is to find one full of death traps, murderous thugs, vengeful ghosts, and the bloody mess that comes with those things I said? Consider the videogame restrooms in immediate need of a crime scene investigation team, and you tell us.
With Xbox One X, formerly Project Scorpio, being the most powerful console ever built, it's easy to fixate on new games such as Forza 7, Anthem and Assassin's Creed Origins. But with the Xbox One X Enhanced program, some of your existing games will receive free updates for Xbox One X when the new console launches. Consider these eight games that will look immediately better on Xbox One X.
Monster Hunter might be the biggest game series you've never played. The action RPG franchise has sold over 40 million copies worldwide, but never really found the success in the West it enjoyed in Japan. That's set to change with the release of Monster Hunter World, coming to Xbox One and PS4 early next year. If you're a fan of the series then you're already looking forward to it; if you aren't, here are five reasons you should care about Monster Hunter, at last.
In this Crew 2 gameplay from E3 2017 we inspect the major changes in this sequel to the open-world racing MMO. The biggest? Cars that can transform into powerboats and stunt planes. This time you'll be racing around open world America by air and by water as well.
