The time is now, oh video watchers, for Show of the Week, in which we make a woolly abomination out of red yarn and very pointy wire and size up physicsy puzzle platformer Unravel. Please enjoy and mind the sharp ends.
You might have thought scars were patches of fibrous tissue produced by the body's natural healing process. Actually, scars are deeply meaningful and symbolic external signs of destiny, ruggedness and evil-doing. For instance. Consider, if you will, these significant scars and what they reveal about you, the scarred videogame hero.
Please enjoy this gameplay from Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 on Xbox One in which Naruto noob Andy discovers his innate jutsu skills. We think.
Rainbow 6 Siege's free Black Ice DLC contains a single new map, but a good one: a swanky abandoned yacht embedded in an arctic glacier. I couldn't tell you what the terrorists want with an immobilised boat full of snow, but if they want it, we want it, and we take it in the gameplay that follows.
In the new episodic Hitman game's Paris level, you can overhear a conversation from which you learn that Agent 47 resembles the world's most famous supermodel. One supermodel battering later and you've got some stolen haute couture, walking the runway so no one realises anything is amiss. That's just one example of the new system of 'opportunities', as seen in this new Hitman gameplay.
The latest game in the venerable Dirt series is coming to Xbox One and PS4, and it looks like a worthy conversion from the Steam Early Access version PC players have had for months. The target of 1080p and 60fps on both consoles even seems like a realistic possibility, judging by what we've played. The best part is that this is a hardcore rally game, the likes of which we rarely see on consoles.
It seems like only a few weeks ago that we were playing the last Assassin's Creed Chronicles game, set in India. That's because it
Upcoming Dying Light expansion The Following shifts the action from the narrow streets of Harran to the open countryside, then gives you a new buggy vehicle to razz around in. Show of the Week gets behind the wheel of Dying Light's new buggy, then road tests some other videogame vehicles you'd be lucky to get past an MOT.
Trust is how you believe someone will catch you if you fall backwards into their arms, and we would gladly fall into the waiting arms of the following videogame characters on account of how they appear to be reliable, honest and incapable of dramatic heel turns.
We recently took you on a tour of some of the strangest places we'd encountered in Fallout 4's Commonwealth. But all of that wasn't weird enough for some people, who have their own favourite mystery spots they urged us to inspect. Consider these six bizarre Fallout 4 locations as discovered by you, the intrepid Outside Xbox audience.
The story campaign of Far Cry Primal continues as we look to expand our primitive village with useful, hard-working people who will contribute to this burgeoning society. Our first stop naturally is a mostly naked man in a wolf hat who makes us take drugs and think we're an owl. Priorities, people.
Lego Marvel's Avengers seeks to recreate the exciting thrill and spectacle of the adventures of earth's mightiest heroes, which makes us wonder why you spend so much of its early hours playing as Agent Coulson and various anonymous S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. Still, we get to the good stuff eventually and take on the fascist forces of the Red Skull as Captain America and Bucky Barnes. I've got a good feeling about this train section, Buck.
Another day, another beta for a Tom Clancy game. This time it's for The Division, a post-apocalyptic online shooter set in a New York City in the midst of a crisis caused by a weaponised smallpox virus. What is it with videogames and wrecking up the Big Apple? Show of the Week investigates.
When we play horror games, we know what we signed up for. The rest of the time, we can be caught with our guard down by genre-defying scares, as in these games so unexpectedly terrifying we can never trust again so thanks for that, games.
Dying Light expansion The Following introduces a new SMG weapon to your array of zombie countermeasures. It turns up in this Let's Play video, in which we fix up the buggy vehicle and do a vengeance on some bandits.
Join us for the first moments of Far Cry Primal's story campaign as we hunt the wily mammoth through the plains of Oros, get jumped by a punk saber-toothed tiger, and then meet a fellow member of our cave-dwelling tribe who has developed a worrying obsession with collecting ears in this Far Cry Primal story gameplay.
In this new gameplay from The Division on Xbox One, we venture into the Dark Zone, the enormously dangerous player versus player area in the centre of the game's midtown Manhattan map. There's great zone-exclusive loot to be won, but only if you can successfully extract it - and calling for extraction makes you immediately obvious to everyone else mooching around the area.
Resident Evil 0 is a prequel to Resident Evil, set hours before the original game. In it, rookie S.T.A.R.S. member Rebecca Chambers and sexy bad boy convict Billy Coen shoot up a train full of zombies, then a mansion full of zombies, then a zombie lab full of zombies. Show of the Week joins them, and considers five other prequels that changed the way we saw their original games.
Some of the worst birthdays happen in games, where the occasion is marked too often with a party that is awkward, violent or both. We advise you to avoid these seven birthday parties, whether or not there's delicious cake.
Fallout 4 appears to be less out-and-out weird than its predecessors, but though there's no Wild Wasteland perk a la New Vegas or kooky insect-themed supervillains a la Fallout 3, there is still unmarked weirdness for you to stumble upon in the Commonwealth. Join us now on a journey into the freakiest corners of the Commonwealth that you might have missed.
Dying Light The Following's new vehicle arrives in this Let's Play video, in which we track down the weaponised buggy. It's initially not much more than a two-seater skateboard with minimal zombie protection, but as you progress you can upgrade your new wheels with a protective electric cage, mounted flamethrower and mine dispenser. Witness us in the following video, get it, oh never mind.
Dying Light The Following introduces a new crossbow weapon to the zombified mix, which we sample in this co-op gameplay. Watch on for the make-physics-happen impact bolts and make-vomiting-happen toxic bolts.
After the roaring success of Destiny, The Division appears to be the next big shooter attempting to meld MMO mechanics with shooting for a mainstream crowd. This is still a game where you will feel short-changed the first time you headshot someone and numbers come out instead of brains but once you adjust to that, there is plenty to like.
Gone Home: Console Edition, out now in the US and at some unspecified point in the future in Europe, is a first-person games that emphasises storytelling and atmosphere over conventional action. Show of the Week has Gone Home in its sights this week, along with some other "walking simulators" we want to play on Xbox One.
We work hard. So when it's time to take a few days off and take a break, is it too much to ask to check into a clean, comfortable, unhaunted hotel that isn't run by murderous fishpeople? With a decent breakfast buffet? Consider the game hotels for which we wrote our longest, angriest online reviews.
