Fighting games are overrun with muscular men in karate gis, women who forgot to put on 80 percent of their clothes, and ninjas. So many ninjas.

Hit the jump for a salute to the genre's seven most bizarre characters.
Survival horror Outlast brings its precision scares and nerve-shredding intensity at last to Xbox One, and we dare to play it.

It's easy to assume every single game in production gets its moment in the limelight during E3, but that's not always the case. There are notable absences every year and while that doesn't necessarily mean the game itself is in development trouble, it does make you wonder why we didn't get to see some tasty gameplay. What might surprise you is that some of these games are scheduled for release this year. Watch on to find out who bunked off E3 2014.

Massively multiplayer online role playing games, or 'MMORPGs' for people who don't want to spend all day saying videogame genre names, are much more popular on PC than consoles.

Mortal Kombat's recent revival was a perfect homage to the original Mortal Kombat games. If the newly announced Mortal Kombat X has taught us anything, though, it's that a fresh stable of characters, plus some phenomenally gross X-ray moves is the appropriate follow-up. We had the fan service in the previous game, so find out exactly what's new after the jump.

We feel a little misled. When we first played Alien: Isolation there were no guns. There were certainly no flamethrowers. Now we've played it again and this time there were both. But do you want to know a secret? We completed the demo and didn't use either of them because we were too terrified. Find out why after the jump.

Making videogames isn't an easy process, and it takes time. When it takes too much time, though, games drift into the dreaded region known as 'development hell', where production is never cancelled but doesn't seem to go anywhere either. Hit the jump for six games we're not sure if we're ever going to play. But, you know, we want to.

So if, like us, you're grimly fascinated by the game's lack of squeamishness, then you can't miss this Let's Play.
