Halo 5 plonks you back into the power armour of Master Chief, from inside which you're leading a team of three other rogue Spartans on an unapproved mission. Your holographic AI pal Cortana isn't around, so Show of the Week auditions some potential replacements with mixed results.
There's plenty of debate over who the best James Bond is. SPECTRE's Daniel Craig, From Russia With Love's Sean Connery, even Goldeneye's Pierce Brosnan. There's no argument that videogame James Bond is the worst James Bond, though. Here are, rather appropriately, 007 times he flubbed the whole international secret agent thing.
After yesterday's adventure in haunted paintings, we continue our Halloween horror spooktacular by returning to Slender: The Arrival. I remember handling myself pretty well last time, so this should be a piece of non-terrifying cake.
We recently recounted the strangest quests we'd come across in Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas. But all of that apparently wasn't weird enough for some people, who have their own weird favourites from the the Wasteland. Consider these six bizarre Fallout quests that Fallout 4 will need to be going some to top.
Horror game Layers of Fear takes place in a gorgeous spookhouse with a twisted history, shifting rooms and creepy as hell paintings. We investigate its gruesome secrets in this Xbox One gameplay. Please note Mike's sinister lack of terror.
A few weeks ago, Microsoft set me a little challenge: beat The Stig from Top Gear in a Bentley Continental GT while being thrown around in the back of a Bentley Contintental GT by The Stig from Top Gear. Predictably, I was soundly thrashed by the white helmeted one but I shook my fist at the sky and vowed to have my revenge. Now, that day has come.
Mike and Andy go beneath the waves to play Halo 5's Team Arena multiplayer on the underwater Fathom map, where they find themselves on opposite sides in a game of Capture the Flag. Andy is red, Mike is blue, sugar is sweet, and so are these sweet headshots* in this Halo 5 multiplayer gameplay.
Rainbow 6 Siege's single player missions assign you an operator class and tailored objective to complete on your lonesome. In this single-player gameplay I clear a building full of explosive mines and explosive-loving enemies with operator IQ and her wrist-mounted nitro cell scanner.
In this early mission in Halo 5's campaign, Mike and Andy co-operatively board and destroy a monster-sized, monster-shaped Covenant spaceship called the Kraken. Will our heroes evacuate the doomed Kraken in time? Only this Xbox One gameplay has the answer.
The secret war between Assassins and Templars has left its mark on history, but let's not forget the myriad minor innovations for which the modern world has Desmond's sexy ancestors to thank, such as the caffe latte and the word 'telephone'. We salute these and the new Assassin's Creed Syndicate in Show of the Week.
Occasionally you're paired up with a hyper-competent companion character so effective they can do loads of the hard work, leaving you more time to look good on the box art. We give thanks for the following AI sidekicks.
Rainbow 6 Siege single-player mode is a thing that exists, though it's a solo training mode rather than a fully fledged single-player story campaign. See for yourself and discover the details in this new Rainbow 6 Siege single-player gameplay.
In a single-player mission from Rainbow 6 Siege's Situations mode, I fortify and booby trap a biker clubhouse to protect a hostage from waves of attackers. Andy is my spotter, cheerleader and hostage wellbeing looking-out-for-er in the following gameplay video.
The main quests in Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas are full of important, world-changing decisions, but if you wander off the beaten track, you discover countless weirdos who want you to do their weirdo dirty work. Fallout 4 has a big job ahead of it to outweird these six strangest sidequests.
One of your most useful gizmos in Rainbow 6 Siege is a two-wheeled remote control robot for spying on besieged enemies. In a pinch, it's also handy for distracting the bad guys. Witness the counter-terrorist super trio of Mike, me and one brave robot drone in this Xbox One gameplay.
Lara Croft gets stranded in a richer, chillier open world for Rise of the Tomb Raider, out on Xbox One next month. We warm up for murdering mercenaries in the frozen wastes of Siberia with a brisk Tomb Raider quiz.
In videogames we're normally overqualified for the role of action hero, with bigger guns than the Navarone and the ability to absorb entire magazines of bullets into our muscular chests. But every so often we find ourselves up against a fight that's too difficult or too tedious to tackle. That's when it's time to use our wits or our words to weasel our way out of the confrontation like an absolute hero.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution was a visually striking game, with its black and gold colour palette, distinctive use of triangles, and some truly exceptional jackets. But its visual direction has evolved for the upcoming Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. Take a look at some of the meaner, cooler and more uncanny designs in Mankind Divided as executive art director Jonathan Jacques-Belletete shows us art and levels from the new game.
After our unexpectedly successful last confrontation with 22 terrorists in Rainbow 6 Siege's Terrorist Hunt mode, we heard there was a French consulate with a terrorist infestation. This will surely be 'une tranche de gāteau', as the French almost certainly don't say.
In Just Cause 3 you can hook multiple items with tether lines at once, then retract those tethers to slam things together, launch objects into the sky or bring whole structures crashing down. Observe Mike and I put the versatility of this new skill to the test in the following physics Just Cause 3 gameplay.
A month after the release of Metal Gear Solid 5, it's finally time to chopper into Metal Gear Online: a multiplayer suite with the same surreal humour and unique gadgetry as the main game with which it was originally meant to launch.
