Trials returns this week, which is great news because I'm sick of being so relaxed and not hating everyone on my Xbox Live friends list. Trials Fusion transports the series into the future, and adds a coat of shiny, occasionally glowing, futuristic paint to the classic side-on motocross game. Join us to see how the game measures up to its predecessors, and watch us take on one of the new challenges. Which of us worthy of the title of Trials Master that I just made up?
The Outside Xbox YouTube channel has reached the milestone of 250,000 subscribers. It's time to celebrate by revisiting a favourite early Oxbox feature: Minecraft Pictionary. Join us for inscrutable blocky drawings, inappropriate guessing and our heartfelt thanks.
It's another month and another update for Xbox One, which gets an assortment of tweaks and new features in the big April system update. But what exactly can your console do now it couldn't do before? Here are the six most useful tricks recently added to Xbox One's repertoire that might have snuck out without you noticing.
With Outside Xbox only a year and a half old, and younger than Trials Evolution, you've probably not been exposed to our intense love of all things Trials. Rest assured, we're all very excited Trials Fusion has arrived on Xbox One and with it the return of just-one-more-go, no-I-can-definitely-do-it-this-time gaming. Seems the perfect opportunity to play a 'friendly' game of multiplayer, right?
Vixenized is an Xbox 360 indie game in which you shoot all the women on an all-women island ('vixens') after they kidnap your fellow plane crash survivors. Also, they fly on giant bats?
Strike Suit Zero is a downloadable space combat game for Xbox One in which you fly a spaceship that transforms (eventually) into a flying giant space robot powered by flux. Watch us pilot one such mighty morphing strike suit through the game's opening missions.
Spider-Man is the greatest of all superheroes and I will fight anyone who says otherwise, but most Spider-Man videogames are rubbish. Why? And could The Amazing Spider-Man 2, out soon for Xbox 360 and Xbox One, be the game to buck the trend? As Outside Xbox's resident Spider-Man superfan, I'm all over it in the following video.
As summer approaches, our thoughts turn to getting in shape, and then how hard sports are, and then if there are any sports games we can play instead of doing real sports. This week, Kinect Sports Rivals is our sport substitute. Come on through for the word on that game, plus the thrilling made-up videogame sports for which we would buy season tickets.
Samuel Johnson once said, "when a person is tired of Titanfall, they are tired of life" (I'm paraphrasing here). That being said, more content for our favourite next-gen mech shooter couldn't hurt, and we know for a fact there will be at least three downloadable content packs for Titanfall included in the game's season pass. Hit the jump to see what we need from those DLC packs.
As the member of the Outside Xbox team who is legendarily awful at stealth games, who better to play a full mission of a game that involves carefully scanning the environment, sneaking to a secure location and completing objectives with a minimum of fuss? Andy, obviously. But he was busy, so instead you've got me declaring war on all the Nazi testicles in Africa and Jane struggling to conceal her dismay. We think that works too.
Can you cheat Kinect Sports Rivals' face-scanning character creator with rubber masks? We pile on the fake noses, novelty facial hair and party wigs so you don't have to in the video above.
Our favourite thing to do in Call of Duty: Ghosts' Devastation DLC is Predator Challenge: an improvised multiplayer mode in which we take turns being Predator to find out who is the most lethal extra-terrestrial hunter. Find out which of us makes the best Predator below the jump.
The Elder Scrolls Online launches on PC and Mac today, inviting you to pick a faction and a race then head out into Tamriel in search of adventures. The game won't come to Xbox One until June but that's not going to stop Show of the Week from sizing up this massively multiplayer online Skyrim and figuring out why great console MMORPGs are such a rarity.
Child of Light is gorgeous. With its watercolour visuals, haunting orchestral score and dialogue in the form of an epic ballad, it feels like a playable storybook from another age. Hit the jump for brand new Child of Light gameplay, plus thoughts from the game's lead writer Jeffrey Yohalem.
Regardless of your feelings for Call of Duty - and it gets a fair amount of hate these days - if you've any love for 80s action movies and/or the oeuvre of Arnold Schwarzenegger, you'll be pleased to see the Predator arrive in the latest Ghosts DLC. What's more, this new Field Order in the Ruin map is executed far better than Michael Myers was in the previous DLC. You'll see exactly why in the gameplay footage after the jump.
Crytek's free-to-play online shooter Warface is now available to all in the form of an open beta on Xbox 360. It includes the expected competitive multiplayer gunplay, but also globetrotting co-op missions. We wade face-first into Afghanistan and Kosovo in this Warface gameplay.
Bioshock Infinite: Burial At Sea was Irrational's last chance to make sense of the series. Now we've played the second and final episode, we've had the full story of Elizabeth, Booker, Comstock, Ryan and BioShock protagonist Jack, along with the revelations that change everything we thought we knew about the worlds of Columbia and Rapture (Objectivist sex tips, anyone?). We hash out the six Burial at Sea moments that changed everything in this video.
With its name, its open-world online zombie survival and literally everything else about it, ApocZ invites unflattering comparisons with the all-conquering DayZ. How long can we survive in this Xbox 360 indie game? Find out in ApocZ gameplay.
In the final episode of BioShock Infinite's Burial at Sea, it's your turn to play as Elizabeth who, stripped of her quantum superpowers, is just a booksmart dame marooned in Rapture with mad lockpicking skills and chipped nail polish. Show of the Week takes the measure of this downloadable epilogue and the the curious history of BioShock studio Irrational.
Almost the first thing the guys at Rocksteady Studios say about Batman: Arkham Knight when they present the first next-gen Batman game is that it is the 'end of the Arkham trilogy'. It's a loaded sentence for two reasons. First, it's a swift backhand to last year's Batman: Arkham Origins, developed not by Rocksteady but by Warner Montreal. It also implies that having worked for the better part of a decade on Batman games, they'll be turning their considerable talents to something new after Arkham Knight. We ask Rocksteady's Dax Ginn about about that and about how Arkham Knight will be a fitting end to the studio's tenure.
Achievements are mostly awarded for feats of genuine gaming prowess. Sometimes, though, they're awarded for utterly random nonsense. Hit the jump for the seven weirdest achievements we've encountered in Xbox 360 games.
Assassin's Creed Unity will be the first solely next-gen Assassin's Creed. Set in Paris (and possibly elsewhere) during the French Revolution, this Assassin's Creed sets out its stall with a new historical backdrop and a new protagonist. That's a good start, but here's the rest of our next-gen Assassin's Creed wishlist. Don't let us down, Ubisoft.
After teasing the reveal for months, Capcom has revealed the fifth character to be added to Ultra Street Fighter IV. It's Decapre! Yeah, me either. Here are the nine characters we'd recruit for Ultra Street Fighter IV instead of Cammy clone Decapre, if we had our way.
Show of the Week turns its penetrating gaze upon Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, the 'absolutely, positively, definitely not a demo' of Metal Gear Solid V that hit this week for both Xbox One and Xbox 360. And since we're in a stealthy mood, we also consider the lessons stealth games have taught us about avoiding detection using fridges, rats and chicken costumes.
When you go to the doctor, you expect to feel better afterwards. Having played videogames, though, I can see why most game protagonists prefer to heal themselves. Hit the jump for the seven gaming physicians most in need of a malpractice suit.
