Having our butts handed to us at the start of a game is so commonplace it's practically tradition, which is why there's nothing more gleefully empowering than much later on meeting the same baddie that humiliated you early in the game, and wiping the floor with them. Time now for a jog down memory lane, reminiscing about the times we totally showed that jerk from the opening act.
Hitman's Game of the Year edition adds a four-mission campaign called Patient Zero. See us take on first mission The Source, set in the Himmapan hotel in Bangkok, in which we must whack a pair of cult leaders to prevent a terrorist attack. See how each of us goes about it in this Hitman gameplay.
This week in our Red Dead Redemption adventure, we're mopping up the final stranger missions, starting with the mission Daedalus and Son. In this mission we must help an amateur aviator named Charles Kinnear finish his flying machine by collecting a bunch of animal parts and red sage. The Wright Brothers had been flying planes for about six years at this point in history, but we haven't the heart to tell him.
Wolfenstein sequel The New Colossus presents us with an alternate history in which Nazis won the Second World War, and now occupy the United States with their advanced technology of laser guns, robot dogs, and decades-too-early videogames. Why are alternate timelines always so full of weird, bad technology? Show of the Week investigates.
It's Halloweek, so we're taking a break from our regularly scheduled Marston Mondays to bring you a spooky special in which we play Undead Nightmare, Red Dead Redemption's standalone zombie spinoff. Expect family strife, sasquatches and hordes of the ravenous undead in this Undead Nightmare gameplay.
'Tis the season, which means that Overwatch's Halloween event, Junkenstein's Revenge, is back for a limited time only. Still sore from our defeat last year, we head back into Overwatch for revenge on Junkenstein's Revenge. Will it go any better this year? Watch and find out!
Today in our adventures in Red Dead Redemption, we aim to become master hunters by knifing two cougars to death with our melee knife, then collecting their pelts. You'd think a master hunter would shoot them from a distance rather than get within slashing range of their terrible claws, but here we are. If we die, Horson gets all our stuff.
WWE 2K18 is out this week, bringing an updated roster, expanded career mode and eight-man battle royales that are as chaotic as they are confusing. But if you're struggling for inspiration for Halloween, it's also packed with spooky wrestlers whose ring gear would make for great costumes, as Mike teaches us later in the show.
Long-time viewers of our Hitman videos will recognise Rocco, the hapless, pantsless kitchen assistant late for his first day at work in the Sapienza mansion. He's our target in this latest Hitman contract, but we've got to kill him with a falling object. This should prove tricky. Will we manage it? Watch and find out.
Our John Marston tries to do good at every opportunity because a key part of redemption is changing your ways. But Red Dead Redemption doesn't make it easy, when our attempted good deeds go awry in a this week's stranger missions.
Horror sequel The Evil Within 2 is out today, and sees series protagonist Sebastian Castellanos thrust back into the STEM brain matrix, which is now under the control of a twisted photographer by the name of Stefano Valentini. Typical videogame artist - they're always up to something weird, as we find later in the show.
Some videogames offer non-lethal alternative methods to take out your foes. Just don't look too closely at these supposedly murder-free options, because it soon becomes apparent a lot are at least as deadly as the lethal method you've been trying to avoid. Here are the times we took the non-lethal option with probably fatal consequences.
Our quest to achieve 100 percent completion in Red Dead Redemption rolls on this week with two stranger missions. In these we mule drugs for a weird racist, and gather flowers for a man's unseen but definitely still alive wife of 50 years. What could go wrong?
The recent Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer introduced Arthur Morgan, the somewhat sinister presumable protagonist of the Red Dead Redemption prequel who menaces people for money. If Dutch's gang is exclusively populated with jerks such as Arthur though, at least they have options for recruiting new blood; there are several games with excellent gunslinger characters they could bring on board, as we find in Show of the Week.
Videogames are supposed to challenge and amuse you, not get their kicks from screwing you over. In a recent video we recalled the times we could swear a game sneakily stacked the odds against us so it could see us fail, and in the comments of that video many of you submitted your own similarly suspect scenarios. Here they are for your viewing pleasure.
One of WWE 2K 18's pre-order bonus is legitimate Olympic gold medallist and 2017 hall of fame inductee Kurt Angle. In this WWE 2K18 gameplay, Mike and I pit two eras of Kurt Angle, his 2001 American Hero persona and his 2006 Wrestling Machine gimmick, against each other. Which Angle will come out on top? Watch and find out!
It's almost time for The Evil Within 2, the survival horror sequel set to put the 'scared' into 'I am scared of the Evil Within 2'. In this Evil Within 2 gameplay from the game's fifth chapter, Luke and I set out to explore a town hall that is less full of city administrators and more full of terrifying camera monsters and challenging photography.
Death of the Outsider is a standalone Dishonored 2 DLC in which Dishonored 2's Billie Lurk and Knife of Dunwall's Daud team up to kill the mysterious, godlike Outsider. In this early mission, we're after a twin bladed knife to stab him with, but first, we need to stop by a tattoo parlour and get some ink.
Now we have our family back in Red Dead Redemption, I suppose we should spend some time with it, and not just because we're already halfway through a Jack mission and the game won't let us carry on until that's completed. So join us as we ride out with Jack to procure some new cattle for the Marston ranch, then afterwards ride off to Mexico to do weird stranger missions as soon as the game will let us.
Destiny 2 is out now, and fans have had more than enough time to hit the level cap and start on their endgame journey. Not us though, we're too busy playing football on the farm, as you'll discover in this week's Show.
NBA 2K18 is out very soon, bringing fans the most up-to-date, realistic depiction of the sport known around the world as 'basket-ball'. But though the basketball is a given in a basketball game, this year's game has expanded the amount of stuff you can do off the court in its new Neighborhood mode, which is like Playstation Home but if everyone was super into basketball. With that in mind, here are seven things things you can do in NBA 2K18 that aren't play basketball.
This week in Red Dead Redemption we head to Cochinay to finally take out Dutch so we can get our family back. We've just remembered that family also includes old-timey prospector character Uncle but it's too late to back out now, the mission's already started.
Videogames are great, but did you know about this whole genre of games that don't require any electronics, instead determining outcomes with dice rolls? Us neither. So, with the help of Eurogamer's resident tabletop games expert Johnny Chiodini, we learned more about the rich, imagination-powered world of Dungeons and Dragons. Behold as we set out on an adventure that involves a clumsy pirate, a talking chicken and, somehow, The Vengabus. Please enjoy.
Back in 2014, The Evil Within did a good job of fuelling our nightmares for the next three years, but just recently we've been having some pretty restful dreams in which nothing chased us down a corridor with industrial implements. Luckily, The Evil Within 2 is on the way and, judging from what we've seen, it's going to sort that right out. We've played it, and here are the five scariest things we've seen so far.
Back in Red Dead Redemption's Blackwater, the net is closing on Dutch Van Der Linde, mostly thanks to his habit of standing in the middle of the street late at night shouting at people's windows. Before we take down Dutch, though, there's the little matter of our uncompleted drunksmanship challenge.
