Your typical videogame action hero is fitter, stronger and more voiced by Troy Baker than we will ever be. This, we have come to accept. We've also come to accept that a game hero or heroine can typically do a whole bunch of things that are physically implausible, if not straight-up biomechanically impossible. Ponder with us now, these incredible physical feats that videogame heroes are pulling off every day like it's nothing.
Resident Evil 7's first two batches of Banned Footage DLC have dropped on Xbox One, and we attempt the restful-sounding Bedroom VHS tape in this video. Sadly, said bedroom is in the Baker house, and therefore full of horrible people vomiting centipedes onto your face. See for yourself how Mike and I handled the horror in this Resident Evil 7 DLC gameplay.
Her Majesty's SPIFFING is in many ways the most British game on the planet. The Queen appears within the first five seconds, for pity's sake. In this Xbox One gameplay we join Captain Frank Lee English and his trusty if unhelpful sidekick Aled Jones, then Brexit off the planet altogether and venture into space in our Mini spaceship.
Hitman's 20th elusive target is Adeze Oijofor, a West African warlord currently staying at the Himmapan hotel in Bangkok. In addition to knocking off the warlord, we also need to retrieve maps and digital files located on a USB stick in a safe somewhere in the hotel. Is Mike up to the stealth challenge? The answer may surprise you!
Sniper Elite 4 is out this week, bringing with it the sandbox stealth and anatomically rigorous killcams that the series is known for. If you want to succeed at it though, you'd do well to listen to the top sniping tips that we've picked up from other videogames later in the show.
Prey is the upcoming shooter from Arkane Studios set on a futuristic space station on which things have gone horribly wrong, as if there is any other kind. We've played the first hour, and are here to share six things that you're going to want to see if you're excited for Prey and don't mind some minor story spoilers for the very start of the game.
Project CARS 2 is unashamedly a game for petrolheads, and I am unashamedly a petrolhead. Well mostly unashamedly, although if you asked me exactly how many hours of motorsport I watched in 2016, I'd likely mumble the triple digit figure into my sleeve. Regardless, us enthusiasts have different priorities from more casual racing game fans, so here are the 6 things that car nerds will adore about this fantastically ambitious sim.
Hitman's final bonus episode of season one is Landslide, in which 47 must take out a corrupt politician throwing a rally in Sapienza. Surely buying in all those fireworks was only going to end one way with Mike around.
For Honor is a Deadliest Warrior-style historical mash-up that imagines a past in which vikings, knights and samurai got into scraps on the regs. As much as that makes my inner historical accuracy stickler wince, I have to admit that this is far from the least likely face-off we've ever seen in videogames - as we discover later in this week's Show.
A quick time event is usually a simple button-pressing mini game that lets you pull off something cool with relative ease. In order for these interactive cutscenes to actually be interactive, though, there has to be a consequence for when you fail to hit that button - such as a humiliating pratfall. Consider these times you failed a QTE and wound up looking like an hilarious dummy instead of a cool action hero.
Here's new Sniper Elite 4 co-op gameplay from the Xbox Version of Rebellion's latest gruesome sniping game, with its X-ray kill cams and exploding vital organs. Witness our exclusive co-op gameplay from the second level of the campaign, Bittanti: a small Italian fishing village that's about to get awfully messy.
We return to Ghost Recon Wildlands' Bolivia for this Ghost Recon Wildlands co-op gameplay, rolling an APC through llama country on the way to a drug cartel outpost. Who can resist their fuzzy faces and doe eyes? Not us, apparently.
Dirt 4 is the next full-fat instalment in the best rally series in videogames. After Early Access game Dirt Rally found success by appealing to people like me, who want to be punished by massively challenging simulation handling, Dirt 4 aims to cater for hardcore rally sim fans and more casual players alike. Here's everything you need to know.
The recipe for a perfect Hitman kill calls for a firm base of preparation and a dash of wicked irony. Just consider these, the most needlessly elaborate, cruel and unusual kills from Season 1 of Hitman No Subtitle in Show of the Week.
With an assassin career stretching back 17 years, Agent 47 has racked up more hits than Abba. Time to test amateur Hitmans Mike and Andy on their Hitman history, as we show them a selection of clips starring Agent 47 as he prepares to pull off a classic kill. Can they tell us what happens next?
Andy and I are co-op Ghosts in this Ghost Recon Wildlands gameplay, fresh from the Santa Blanca-controlled Bolivian region of Montuyoc. Witness the gathering of intel, the kidnapping of informants and the blowing up of helicopters in the following video.
Resident Evil 7 is a return to form for Resident Evil, but occasionally confusing. Join myself and Luke from Outside Xtra as we try to explain some of the stranger moments in Resident Evil 7. Beware major spoilers ahead.
This Sniper Elite 4 Gameplay rejoins hero Karl Fairburn, the man Nazi testicles have bad dreams about at night. This time he's in Italy, pretty much single-handedly dismantling the Nazi war machine, one pair of plums at a time.
Ghost Recon Wildlands puts you in a four-person fireteam charged with taking down a brutal drug cartel threatening to take over Bolivia. It's serious business, which is why we nearly got kicked out of the squad so many times, as you'll discover in this week's Show.
It's easy to tell who the hero of a game is: they're the character on the box, or the game is named after them, or they're played by Troy Baker. While those guys get all the fame, spare a thought for the unsung heroes: the nobodies without whom nothing would get done and those heroes wouldn't be very heroic at all.
Behold Ghost Recon Wildlands single-player gameplay in which we bring my eyepatch-loving female Ghost to the game's open-world Bolivia - specifically the Itacua region from the start of the game.
Hitman Elusive Target 18 is The Chameleon: an actor dressed as a decorated military officer, holed up in the house in the Colorado militia base. You have to kill him in an 'accident'. Witness our respective attempts on his life in this Hitman gameplay.
At first, Resident Evil 7 seems like a far cry from Resident Evil survival horror tradition, with its controversial new first-person perspective and apparent preference for stealth and hiding. As a long time fan of the Resident Evil series, though, I think it's the best Resident Evil since 4, for the following (mostly spoiler-free) reasons.
In Resident Evil 7, you find yourself trapped in the home of the Baker family: a dwelling almost as gruesome and freaky as the Baker family itself, with who you are unhappily trapped. If only you had seen Show of the Week, which advises on the telltale signs you've wound up in a house of horrors, you might have gotten out of there in time.
Some games let you choose either to dispense lethal justice to every enemy you come across or, alternatively, to talk, disarm and flirt your way out of trouble. Consider these 9 murdery games that you could feasibly finish without bumping anyone off.
