Update Friday 31st March: Yesterday's sessions have all been uploaded to the EGX YouTube channel. Find them there or in the embeds we've added below.
EGX Rezzed is rapidly approaching - to be precise, it's on in London from Thursday to Saturday this week - and with it comes a personal favourite pair of events: the Rezzed Sessions and Developer Sessions.
Welcome to the live stream page for EGX Rezzed 2014! The show took place at the NEC in Birmingham from Friday 28th March until Sunday 30th March and featured three days of top-notch playable PC, indie and next-gen games as well as another round of amazing developer sessions, featuring the likes of Dean Hall, Mike Bithell, Ragnar Tornquist and Creative Assembly. You can check out recordings of each session below.
Back in 2012, Hotline Miami created more than a minor stir at the first Rezzed PC and indie gaming show. Chatter about the game spread around the event like wildfire, notes were made to drop by the stand to see what all the fuss was about, and the game rightly rode this wave of enthusiasm all the way up to its release. A similar buzz rose up around another game at this year's show, and it's not hard to imagine that the same good fortune awaits it.
Company of Heroes 2 is returning to the Second World War's western battleground with new standalone multiplayer DLC that offers two new factions - the US Forces and the German Oberkommando West - alongside eight new maps.
If you were at Rezzed back in June, you might have caught a glimpse of Montague's Mount. It's a rather gloomy exploration game that sees you waking up on a mysterious island - without eight of your favourite records, alas - and then trying to piece together what's happened.
Birmingham's NEC was a strange old place last weekend. It wasn't necessarily the livestock show that took up one of the halls; I didn't get to check that out, though in my head it involved a fine heffer rotating slowly on a plinth, bathed in glorious light and surrounded by fawning farmers. It wasn't the many LED road signs pointing to Middle Earth; I did check those out, and they led to a car park that hosted a single Ginsters delivery van, somewhat disappointingly. It was that sitting alongside these was the dark half of Hall 9, where Rezzed had set-up shop, and where there was a fine selection of much of what's making gaming so exciting right now.
We've already picked our game of Rezzed 2013 - although, to be perfectly clear, there were so many games of Rezzed 2013 - so here's a chance to see what tickled your fancy over the weekend in Birmingham.
Mode 7's revealed a new stadium for its forthcoming future sports title Frozen Endzone, with a new video showing off the latest locale to join the game.
That was fun! Rezzed 2: Rezzed Harder is over, and thanks to everyone who made it to Birmingham's NEC Arena for two quite incredible days. It's a testament to the developers, organisers and those who came that Rezzed remains one of the most refreshing game shows around, even if I do say so myself.
The alpha version of DayZ standalone still isn't ready for release but now there's an end in sight.
Welcome to the live stream page for Rezzed: The PC and Indie Games Show! Rezzed takes place at the NEC in Birmingham on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd June and - as well as a show floor full of playable PC and indie games - is home to two days' worth of amazing developer sessions, where top people like Chris Avellone, Ragnar Tornquist, Dean Hall and Creative Assembly share the latest progress on their games. You can watch every session live on this page as it happens. Sessions start at 12pm BST / 1pm CEST each day and the full schedule is below the embed. Enjoy!
Ragnar Tornquist, director of Kickstarted adventure game Dreamfall Chapters, has disagreed with George Lucas' view that the evolution of storytelling in video games is still waiting for a wildly popular success like the movie Titanic.
Oculus Rift! Crowds! Dean Hall! A giant Worm!

With Rezzed 2013 now just a few days away, we can finally confirm that the full schedule of developer sessions will be broadcast live here and on the Eurogamer YouTube channel this Saturday and Sunday. Yay!
There are a ridiculous number of awesome games playable at Rezzed this coming weekend, but today we're also happy to reveal the presence of at least one ridiculous game.
The final pieces of the Rezzed developer session schedule are now in place ahead of next weekend's PC and indie game showpiece at the NEC in Birmingham, and the last sessions to be announced include biggies like DayZ Standalone and Hotline Miami 2.
Update: A few of you have asked whether it's possible to sign up as an individual and form a team at the start of the show. That's absolutely fine - just drop us a line to firstname.lastname@example.org and as long as we still have capacity we will invite you along and allow you to form teams on the day.
Gamer Network, which publishes Eurogamer.net, has announced that this year's Rezzed show in Birmingham will have a host of Ubisoft games for attendees to play, including the extremely promising Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
Last year, at the inaugural Rezzed PC and indie games show, we invited 16 awesome indie developers to bring their games along and show them off in a massive arcade right in the middle of the show floor. Games like BaraBariBall, Gateways, Gunpoint and Proteus were the talk of the show.
Rezzed, The PC and Indie Games Show returns for a second year this June 22nd-23rd at The NEC building in Birmingham. And now the first playable games have been confirmed.
Rezzed: The PC and Indie Games Show is returning to the UK this June and in my role as curator of the developer sessions I've been beavering away over the last few months organising this year's schedule. I've got enough of it together now that I can let you know exactly when the majority of this year's sessions will take place.
Are you working on an indie game that you would like to shove in the faces of thousands of PC and indie gamers? Then you've understood the headline above and your mouse works!
Following a very enjoyable debut in Brighton last summer, we're delighted to announce that Rezzed: The PC and Indie Games Show returns on Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd June at the NEC in Birmingham for two days of playable games, developer sessions, tournaments, board games and more.

There aren't enough games where you get view things from inside the mouth of an alien. Fortunately, there is at least one: Unknown Worlds' splendid-looking multiplayer shooter Natural Selection 2, where our friends from outer space do bloody battle with space marines.
It's been a few weeks now since Rezzed concluded, but we thought you still might be interested in checking out a couple of developer session videos that slipped down the back of the sofa. Ubisoft was at Rezzed in force, presenting Ghost Recon Online and ShootMania Storm to the audience on the show floor and in the sessions auditorium.
The inaugural Rezzed game show, organised by the people behind the Eurogamer Expo (you know, us), happened in Brighton earlier this month.
One of the best things about the developer sessions we hosted at Rezzed last weekend is that they gave game developers the chance to give frank, personal accounts of making their games direct to you guys without interference from publisher PRs or, well, us. You've already seen some of this from Peter Molyneux, Day Z's Dean Hall and the Project Zomboid team.
