Oxbox Xmas Challenge is King of Beasts in Far Cry 4

Far Cry 4's outposts are challenge enough when you're allowed to use guns, rockets and helicopters to capture them, so today's festive task to take over over one using animals and nothing else could prove tricky. Luckily, the creatures of Kyrat are deadlier than a poison sandwich. Let's just hope I can keep them from turning on me for long enough to get the job done.

5 Reasons Evolve Isn't As Boring As It Looks

5 Reasons Evolve Isn't As Boring As It Looks

We don't mean to be unkind, but Evolve appears to be a bit boring. It's got a forgettable title, a generic sci-fi art style and a cast of characters whose names simply refuse to stay in our memories. The worst part is, if you've played it you know there are some brilliant mechanics in there and that it plays unlike any other multiplayer shooter. This is our last ditch attempt to convince you that Evolve isn't as dull as it looks.

Blindfolded Ultra Street Fighter 4 Escalates the Oxbox Xmas Challenge

Things are heating up on day four of the Oxbox Xmas Challenge. I've eked out an early lead but it's all to play for as I draw a task similar to one I failed last year. Still, I'm more familiar with Street Fighter than I am with Killer Instinct. I didn't say I was good, mind.

7 Hilarious Achievements You Want on Your Gamercard

7 Hilarious Achievements You Want on Your Gamercard
