Having gently crashed the Ecliptic Express in the last Resident Evil 0 video, Mike and Andy disembark into a classic spooky Umbrella mansion. Watch as they battle a giant centipede, solve complex puzzles and realise the leech monster has followed them from the train. He really needs to get a hobby.
Assassin's Creed has always prided itself on historical accuracy, but for the framing narrative about magical space ghosts. For the DLC packs, on the other hand, it seems to be open season on supernatural weirdness. We had George Washington as king of America in Assassin's Creed 3 and now London's most notorious serial killer is reimagined as Scarecrow from Batman, right down to the hessian sack mask, in Assassin's Creed Syndicate's Jack the Ripper DLC.
Waiting for games is hard at the best of times, harder still when the game you're looking forward to is already being enjoyed on PC or another console. At least the wait is nearly over for these incoming Xbox games that are already out elsewhere, such as Rocket League and DayZ.
Welcome to the future. There are hoverboards, but not the ones you were hoping for. Still though, Happy New Year! Show of the Week recalls our favourite fails of the year just gone, then inspects games out in 2016 for which we haven't long to wait, such as Hitman, Far Cry Primal and The Division.
If you have ever been playing an FPS and thought boy, I wish I were being shot in the chest for real, then good news, weirdo: That's the kind of bizarre masochism these peripherals are pleased to cater to. Consider these six game gadgets that loved inflicting pain more than Christian Gray.
Mike and I try to stop our speeding train full of zombies, picking up where we left off in our last video from the upcoming Resident Evil 0 remaster. What are the odds that an Umbrella Corporation train will have a nice straightforward system for operating its emergency brake?
It might not reach the wacky heights of Fallouts 3 and New Vegas, but Fallout 4 still has its share of weirdness for you to discover. Here are the six weirdest quests we encountered in our Commonwealth adventures. There are no main story missions in the following video, but consider this your warning if you're avoiding side quest spoilers.
ARK Survival Evolved is a wildly popular PC survival game that has finally made it to Xbox One Game Preview. In it you're tasked with surviving in a sort of prehistoric playground in servers of up to 70 human players. There's even the option of turning a spare Xbox One (if such a thing exists in your house) into a dedicated server and a split screen option is on the way too. First things first, though, let's create a character and punch some dinosaurs.
The Oxbox Xmas Challenge Contest 2015 originally included a Star Wars Battlefront challenge in which you had to collect the health pick-up from over the Tattooine Sarlacc pit and survive while being blasted by the other two contestants. When we tried to run the challenge, the health pick-up (previously encountered in the multiplayer beta) never materialised. This is the result of that aborted challenge.
Welcome to the Outside Xbox festive charades, in which we take it in turns to depict a random videogame in the medium of inexpert competitive mime. Begin!
For the final day of the Oxbox Xmas Challenge, I'm meant to clear a level of terrorists solo in Rainbow 6 Siege's Terrorist Hunt mode. My siege strategy is modelled on the advent calendar: smash open one window at a time for a festive surprise.
Yet another traditional event: attempting to win a match in a fighting game while blindfolded. In this 2015 edition it's Mortal Kombat X, which promises to be a violent place to test Mike's blindfolded fighting skills.
At first glance, these movie tie-ins are not at all Christmassy. It's all hating and fighting, which are pretty much the opposite of what Cliff Richard told us Christmas is about. But when you dig into the films they're based on, you discover they covertly take place during the holidays. Here are six games you probably never knew were set at Xmas.
It's Day 10 of the Oxbox Xmas Challenge and my final task is to successfully launch a piece of junk, from a selection chosen by Jane and Mike, through a basketball hoop in Fallout 4. To complete this task I'll be using the Junk Jet, a pneumatic trash cannon that I found in an abandoned factory, just like a real basketball player.
Can I fly a jet through a tunnel in Just Cause 3? Day 9 of the Oxbox Xmas Challenge is counting on it. Let me pick a plane, pick a tunnel, and then we'll see what's what.
Join us for the now traditional FIFA Giant Killing Challenge, which marks the one occasion each year that any of us actually play FIFA. Disappointingly light on the actual murder of above-average-sized humans, this giant killing challenge sees me take a League Two minnow in FIFA 16 and attempt to beat a Premiership squad.
Today's Oxbox Xmas Challenge asks me to complete the "Dying Light nighttime run". This means making it across a good chunk of the Dying Light map in the middle of the night while being chased by angry superzombies. Luckily, I am very good at panicky fleeing.
Today's challenge asks the eternal question: can you beat up the Terminator with selfie-loving wrestler Tyler Breeze in WWE 2K16? And the follow-up eternal question: can you beat up two Terminators with selfie-loving wrestler Tyler Breeze in WWE 2K16? Answers within.
In the spirit of the season, we attempt to brighten up the holidays for the residents of Fallout 4's Sanctuary by bringing some much-needed festive cheer to the tumbledown shanty town. Some would say that a light-up Christmas tree that requires three large generators to power is excessive in a town that doesn't even have a clean water supply, but those people are grinches, whom you must ignore.
To paraphrase Liam Neeson, I have a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a long career of acting like a complete idiot in videogames. Skills that make me perfect for an Xmas challenge that involves stripping to my underoos and punching an authority figure in the back of the head. But will I make good my escape from Diamond City? I feel like my entire time on Outside Xbox has been building up to this moment.
Sport has gotten less brutally violent over the course of history, with the gladiatorial combat of Ancient Rome giving way to gentler pursuits, like darts and rhythmic gymnastics. But if the futures foreseen by these sci-fi games are to be believed, gruesome spectacle is set for a roaring comeback in the world of professional sport.
It's day four of the Oxbox Xmas Challenge and I'm up for my second tricky task: land on a train in Just Cause 3. That's like, day one of stunt school, this should be a cinch.
We are brave Stormtroopers in Star Wars Battlefront's Battle of Jakku DLC, whose giant crashed Star Destroyer appears in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, don't you know. Watch us avenge the Death Star in the following gameplay. Never forget! Do it for the Empire!
Day three of the Oxbox Xmas Challenge Contest 2015 is my turn, and my task is to stay on the track for a whole lap of the wet and slippy Sebring Raceway in the Forza 6 wet weather showcase event. I have full confidence in my abilities as an excellent driver and enjoyer of puddles.
There's nothing more festive than diving. How do you think Santa gets down all those chimneys with enough speed to finish his rounds in a single night? He performs a double somersault pike and lands a clean rip entry into the chimney flue. Those are all diving words that I only learnt after I'd attempted my challenge of plummeting into a swimming pool from a helicopter in GTA Online. Let's see how I get on.
