Hitman 2 definitely didn't validate me as a silent assassin

I'm pretty good at Hitman. I've been playing the games ever since Hitman: Codename 47, a game so clunky that you had to love it in order to put up with its intolerable menu system and unrelenting control issues. The games have such an allur...

My emotional EGX-perience with Detroit: Become Human

"Hello. Welcome to Detroit..."It was a warm and friendly voice, but it was coming from a young woman with a hollow, vacant face, stood in a pose like she was at one with the universe, yet ready to pounce into action at a second's notice. Th...

Check out some of the delightful Cosplay from EGX 2017

I'm a big fan of cosplay. I'd take part myself if I was younger, better-looking, more-talented, creative, more proactive... umm. Anyway, I get a real kick out of cosplayers and their great outfits. I really enjoy the public performance aspe...

My janky EGX-perience with Assassin's Creed Origins

Despite queuing for entrance on each of the days I attended EGX, and even standing in line for Super Mario Odyssey on its UK debut, the queue for Assassin's Creed Origins was easily the longest line in terms of duration (though it still see...

My bullet-riddled EGX-perience with Huntdown

The Xbox presence at EGX this weekend was surprisingly small. Whilst Nintendo and PlayStation had full hall-quarter setups and stage areas, and even individual games like Destiny having huge devoted floorspace. Xbox had a somewhat modest ar...

My traumatising EGX-perience with Monster Hunter World

"I only came here to play this!"I turned my head to see a wide-eyed girl beaming at me like it was Christmas, her eyes glistening behind her trendy millennial glasses. Whereas she was really excited, I was more baffled, as I turned back to ...

Valve: If VR makes you sick, it's the developer's fault

Fear of motion sickness and living room ruining vomit is one of the sticking points surrounding the definitely-happening-and-not-at-all-actually-unlikely VR revolution. And while I kind of dislike the relative sensory deprivation of VR, the...

The HTC Vive is an absolute VR game changer

A few months back at E3, I was lucky enough to be able to get my hands on both the retail version of the Oculus Rift, as well as the PlayStation VR, back then known as the Morpheus. As a big fan of VR in theory, if dubious about the tech in...

Megaton Rainfall let me be Superman at EGX 2015

I got to have a wander around EGX 2015 in Birmingham last week, and found myself spending quite a lot of time in the indie section of the show floor. There were games using puppets and door-stoppers, games with big and fancy displays, games...

Indie Megabooth's bringing more indies to EGX

There are a few glorious, magical days where the Destructoid UK team gets to actually write about news from the UK. They happen very rarely, but thankfully the stars have aligned and today is one of those days. God save the bloody Queen. An...
