The recent Resident Evil HD Remaster was the best selling digital title ever for Resident Evil publisher Capcom. So if you were Capcom, what would you be doing right now? That's right: frantically remastering every old Resident Evil game in existence. As there have been 11,000 Resident Evil games, though, that will take ages. If I were you, Capcom, I would stick to these four.
Pneuma: Breath of Life is a first-person puzzle game in which you are the self-obsessed Pneuma, who journeys through a world full of with puzzles solved by looking at switches in the shape of giant eyes and moonwalking. It's made with Unreal Engine 4, and looks mighty pretty. Watch us get to grips with it in this Xbox One gameplay.
We love games with multiple endings, they make all our careful choices seem meaningful. They also open the way for the dreaded downer ending, however. That's the one where everything explodes and everyone is miserable or dead. Here are the seven bleakest for which we were responsible with our terrible decisions.
To build Dying Light's powerful Korek Machete, you need 20 metal parts and 10 alcohols. In this Xbox One gameplay, we race to collect all the booze and metal in Harran. Who will be first to craft the mighty machete? Who will detonate the most hazmat zombies? Only this video knows for sure.
We haven't read the graphic novel on which Blue Estate is based, so we're coming to this Kinect-powered light gun game entirely fresh. That's probably why we sound so surprised when a bizarre bra-wearing North Korean stereotype appears in the game's strip club setting. Presumably the whole The Interview furore passed these guys by? We investigate what in the blazes is going on.
The festive season is well and truly behind us, but we never let that get in the way of arranging a prizefight between Santa and Death. Dead or Alive: Last Round is a new semi-free-to-play version of the last-gen beat 'em up. The core game is free and extra fighters can be bought separately. We choose from the full roster, truss them up in ridiculous outfits and take them for a spin.
Zombie Army Trilogy contains no less than three campaigns, but it also has a horde mode that pits you against a relentless and never-ending tide of Nazi undead. How will Mike and I cope with wave after wave of walkers, heavy gunners and levitating zombie snipers? Find out in this Xbox One gameplay.
Dying Light's Korek Machete is a ludicrously powerful weapon. You have to kick a box hidden on a roof 70 times to get the blueprint, then gather a whole bunch of alcohol and a junkyard's worth of metal parts to actually build it.
We admit it, we have a weakness. That weakness is the combination of co-op and zombies. Perhaps you've been following our Dying Light odyssey or recall our adventures in Dead Island. Rebellion's Sniper Elite spin-off Zombie Army Trilogy, with its undead Nazis, zombie demon Hitler and unexpected skeletons should therefore be right up our strasse. And it would be, if we could only remember its name.
Videogame protagonists are big-picture people. They focus on the stuff like saving the galaxy, daring heists, or bringing criminals to justice. But spare a thought for the ordinary, everyday people your protagonists encounter along the way, who have to deal with the unintended consequences of all that reckless heroing.
When the zombie plague lays waste to civilisation, I will bring to bear my real-life survival skills of making tea, singing karaoke and doing my eyeliner on the train. Who wants me for their band of post-apocalyptic survivors? Anyone?
Tekken 7 hits arcades in Japan this week, so publisher Namco Bandai has released the game's opening cinematic, which shows series regulars Heihachi and Kazuya beating each other senseless inside an active volcano. It's a family tradition?
The best way to play a fighting game is clearly with another human. They're wilier than a computer and you can mercilessly take the mickey when you perform a gruesome fatality on them for the eighth time in a row. But there isn't always another human available, which is why Mortal Kombat X has two new modes designed to keep you interested in playing alone.
You would have thought futuristic scientists would have better things to do than subjecting the human body to extreme thrill rides. Perhaps they knocked the whole cancer thing on the head the previous week? In any case ScreamRide in its destruction mode actively encourages you to hurl humans at buildings, causing as much damage as possible. We play that, and other more constructive modes, in this first look at the game proper.
Popular indie zombie survival game State of Decay returns on Xbox One this May in its Year One Survival Edition. Among the benefits for those late to the State of Decay party are 1080p visuals and all the DLC released for the original version. If you already own the game on Xbox 360, you get a not unwelcome 33 percent discount. As you will see from this resolutely singleplayer Let's Play, though, the much requested co-op mode is still missing.
Show of the Week gives the shakedown to The Escapists on Xbox One: a sandbox jail simulator in which your objective is to break out of a series of increasingly high-security slammers.
Endings are hard. But lucky for you, videogames, some clever people already figured the optimum way to end a game that delights and rewards the player for hours of sticking with all the punching, shooting and snowboarding: it's the unexpected, out of genre, choreographed dance finale. Witness these seven magnificent dance endings we never saw coming.
Just Cause 3 is a game that exists, or will do soon, and that's point number one on our Just Cause 3 wishlist checked off. Beyond actually existing, though, here's a bunch of other stuff we need from you, sequel to Just Cause 2.
Open-world zombie run-away-frommer Dying Light has Assassin's Creed-style leaps of faith in which you can jump from a huge height and survive the fall by landing on a pile of soft stuff. Only in Dying Light, the stuff is trash bags not hay, and it is 100 percent easier to miss it by a lethal few inches. These are our findings in the following Xbox One co-op gameplay.
I understand if you aren't closely following the progress of Microsoft's upcoming PC operating system Windows 10. There are only so many hours in the day not consumed by being a handsome and/or pretty fan of Outside Xbox, after all. But hey, if you own an Xbox One, Windows 10 might be the most exciting thing to happen to the console in ages. A graphically upgraded, live-streamed and cross-platform future awaits.
#IDARB is this month's free Game with Gold for Xbox One owners. Don't know it? Imagine an 8-bit platformer/future arena ball game/beat 'em up and you're nearly there. The best way to understand it is to see it in action, so hit the jump to watch us get our heads around this chaotic and hilarious multiplayer game.
Open-world zombie whacker Dying Light shifts gear after dark, dispatching the much more aggressive, powerful and gross zombies called volatiles to hunt you down and mess you up. We creep out of the safe house to brave our first full night in the city in the following Xbox One co-op gameplay.
From the creators of Left 4 Dead comes Evolve: a monster-hunting multiplayer shooter that matches a team of four against a fifth player, who controls one of a selection of giant alien beasts. Show of the Week inspects the latest on Evolve, plus some other games that haven't got their head around the concept of evolution.
Plenty of achievements are hard work, that's the point. Some games take it too far, though, with gamerscore rewards that definitely aren't worth the enormous effort you have to put in to earn them. Hit the jump for the most egregious examples of games having absolutely zero respect for your time.
Dying Light's co-op mode lets you complete any of the single-player campaign's missions with the help of up to three parkouring clones. In this Xbox One gameplay, Mike, Andy and I free run to the video rental store because we need anti-zombification medicine and a man named Gazi needs a VHS tape for his scarecrow mother. Best not to ask.
