Just Cause 3 is out next week, bringing the trademark Just Cause blend of parachutes, grappling hooks and many, many explosions to Xbox One, PS4 and PC. It also includes a wingsuit, which we are now using to solve all inter-office disputes, as you'll see in this episode of Show of the Week featuring the first ever Just Cause 3 gameplay on Xbox One.
If you find a game hidden within another game, and you're as easily distracted as us, chances are you'll wind up playing that instead of getting on with saving humanity or your family or whatever the mission was supposed to be before you got sidetracked. Here are seven games tucked away inside other games that nearly spelled doom for any poor suckers relying on our videogame protagonists.
Fallout mods were confirmed as arriving for Xbox One at some non-specific point in the future by Todd Howard at Microsoft's E3 showcase. But while the game has been out only a couple of weeks and there's no official support for them on PC yet, fans are already getting creative. Here's the stuff we've discovered already that we want to see make it to Xbox One.
Princess Leia Organa faces off against iconic Star Wars bounty hunter Boba Fett in an online Hero Battle. Who will be victorious? Will Mike be able to handle Boba's janky jetpack? You can probably guess the answer to that question without even watching the video.
Super Dungeon Bros is a cross-platform four-player co-op dungeon brawler with procedurally generated dungeons and characters named after rock stars. See Jane and me bash monsters, collect loot and stack ourselves in human pyramids in this Super Dungeon Bros gameplay.
The Elder Scrolls Online's second piece of official DLC is here, allowing you to discover the Orc capital city of Orsinium in Wrothgar. It's got a huge new questline, rideable bears and, more importantly, these weird spider hamsters that really freak us out. Watch us on a voyage of discovery through the new locations.
Show of the Week journeys to a galaxy far, far away to appraise the unerringly authentic Star Wars Battlefront and shoot people in some of science fiction's most iconic locations. Later, we rate the Death Star against the other most lethal space megaweapons ever created, in case you're in the market for an orbiting weapon of mass destruction.
I didn't set out to be evil in Fallout 4 but the wasteland is a hard place for hard, ruthless people and also I was curious what would happen. At this early stage, I've not had the chance yet to nuke an entire town a la Fallout 3, but I've still clocked up some bad karma in my own minor evil ways. Consider these misdemeanours on my Fallout 4 rap sheet.
Fallout 4's cooking stations offer several recipes for stat-enhancing food and drinks. Of these, the post-apocalyptic cocktail called the Dirty Wastelander sounded the most appealing, believe it or not, and didn't require the irradiated meat of feral animals. We brew up a batch in the following video.
According to Star Wars canon, the climactic confrontation between Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader took place on the Death Star. According to this exclusive, never-before-seen footage from Star Wars Battlefront, they clashed again on Hoth. Witness the epic rematch in this Xbox One gameplay video.
One of the reasons we're excited for WWE 2K16 is the return of gimmickry in wrestling after years of interchangeable muscle men with tedious real names. The other reason is that this is a far more assured grappling game than last year's abortive effort. In this Let's Play we finally determine who is better: classic wrestling legends such as Macho Man Randy Savage and The Ultimate Warrior or upstarts like NXT's Vaudevillains.
Hopefully by now you've played some Fallout 4, gotten a feel for the game, and been sarcastic to half the Commonwealth. But Fallout 4 is a huge game, with plenty to do in it; let us lighten the load with these essential, spoiler-free tips.
Fallout 4 introduces base building and some serious crafting, and soon you will wonder how Fallout ever went without it, because the new systems are a perfect fit for the scavenging, hoarding existence you're eking out in the Commonwealth. It also gives more opportunities for expressing yourself, so Show of the Week pays a visit to each of our Fallout 4 digs to see how we're living in the post-apocalypse.
Star Wars Battlefront is available now as a 10-hour trial for EA Access members, so Jane and I headed to Endor to check out its magnificent trees, cute indigenous population and deadly deadly lasers. Hit the jump to see me leading a band of AI rebels against Jane's squad of AI stormtroopers in this Xbox One gameplay.
Some games don't just respawn us, they keep us canonically immortal with advanced gadgets and/or science magic. However many pieces our character gets exploded into, they get reassembled by the following tech.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 has the series' first four-player co-operative campaign since World at War in 2008. See how Jane, Mike and I fare on our first mission to co-operatively rescue the Egyptian prime minister in this Xbox One gameplay.
We love Lara Croft, but she is not a good archaeologist. Every single historically valuable site she visits ends up smashed to unrecognisable rubble, and don't get us started on that time she murdered the last remaining live T-Rex in the original Tomb Raider. Here are six activities to which she's much better suited in Rise of the Tomb Raider, sequel to the 2013 reboot.
Fallout 4 will feel instantly familiar to those who've played Fallouts 3 and New Vegas, but there are countless little changes to discover as you explore the wasteland. These nine in particular make a big difference to how Fallout 4 plays (don't worry, we'll avoid story spoilers in the video ahead).
Among the conversation options in Fallout 4 are replies with the general label "sarcastic" to indicate the snarkiest, least helpful, most smart-ass response.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 lands this week with free-running multiplayer, film noir zombies and the first four-player co-operative campaign since World at War in 2008. Show of the Week inspects the goods, along with Call of Duty's habit of killing off the character you're playing for sudden, dramatic effect.
If you're going to survive the post-war devastation of Fallout 4, you're going to have to set aside your pre-war common sense, because Fallout teaches us the world of Fallout operates according to its own special brand of Fallout logic. Here are eight examples to keep in mind when you jump into Fallout 4 next week.
In this video, Mike and Andy funbox the Fallout 4 Pip-Boy that comes in the swish Fallout 4 Pipboy Edition, testing the adjustable phone housing with an iPhone 6 and iPhone 5s (the iPhone 4/4S/5 and Samsung Galaxy S4/S5 also fit). But what's that? The telltale crackle of a radiation detector?
GTA Online Freemode Challenges add new optional timed challenges to GTA Online to see who in your server can perform the longest jump, fall the farthest without dying, or freefall for the longest before opening their parachute. In this Xbox One gameplay video we try the 'near misses' challenge to see who can rack up the most near misses without crashing, for glory, cash and RP.
In GTA Online's new Slasher Mode, a lone shotgun-wielding maniac hunts a terrified group of shotgun-not-having victims in one of a selection of dark and appropriately creepy locations. In this Xbox One gameplay, we answer the eternal question: which of us makes the best horror movie-style slasher?
At first, I misunderstood completely what Battleborn was all about. It isn't some sort of first-person multiplayer online battle arena in the vein of League of Legends, it turns out. Instead, Battleborn is mostly a shooter but with light, Borderlands-esque RPG elements. The unique twist is there's no grinding, as you'll rattle through the levels over the course of a single match and everything gets reset afterwards. It also contains a bunch of unlikely characters that have no business being in a first-person shooter, so here are our five favourites.
