Things weren't always better in the age before day one DLC, season passes and microtransactions; there were plenty of other little ways in which games of yore were The Worst.
Wow, time flies doesn't it? I can't believe it's time for another Christmas stream already, it seems like only yesterday I was playing Marvin's Mittens for last year's festive broadcast.
If you're a regular live stream viewer you should know the deal by now - I play a Christmas themed game and, while doing so, give away lots of free games that have been kindly donated by a generous bunch of developers and publishers.
However, this year will be slightly different because, as well as the usual free digital games, I'll also be giving away some cool physical swag like Christmas jumpers, T-Shirts and for some reason, a gas mask...
The first season of this year's episodic Hitman has come to a close, but for those craving yet more murderous challenges Hitman roulette lets you spin the wheel to generate a randomised Hitman mission.
After eight long months, the first season of Hitman reaches its climax today as Agent 47 takes a trip to Hokkaido, Japan.
If you've been following our exploits in Hitman thus far, you may have seen a pattern emerging among the video team. I'm perfectly awful and Ian's a brave amateur, while Aoife is the peerless assassin.
Now that everyone's in slightly less of a flap about its episodic release structure, one thing's become very clear: IO's Hitman reboot might well be seeing Agent 47 at his very best.
Remember Hitman's Elusive Target missions? The first of these special one off missions was supposed to launch sometime in March, but for whatever reason it was delayed right up until this weekend just gone.
Hello, Eurogamers, and welcome to your weekly sampler of moving images and sounds from Outside Xbox.
While PC gamers still have everything to look forward to, the PS4 beta for Hitman has sadly come and gone. Don't be too sad though, at least we made some fond memories along the way.
Well, some of us did, anyway. Each member of the video team had a go on Hitman beta, with varying degrees of success - which is to say Hitman is more difficult than I anticipated and I'm pretty sure those guys cheated.
Give the video below a watch and tell us who you think is the best at being Agent 47.
In many ways, producing video for the internet is a lot like soothsaying. We spend a lot of time reading the tea leaves (or fish guts, depending on your preference) to try and divine what videos will do well. Is the subject matter engaging? Have we tagged the video properly? Is this a game people want to see more of?
