Fallout 4 introduces base building and some serious crafting, and soon you will wonder how Fallout ever went without it, because the new systems are a perfect fit for the scavenging, hoarding existence you're eking out in the Commonwealth.

These nine in particular make a big difference to how Fallout 4 plays (don't worry, we'll avoid story spoilers in the video ahead).
If you're going to survive the post-war devastation of Fallout 4, you're going to have to set aside your pre-war common sense, because Fallout teaches us the world of Fallout operates according to its own special brand of Fallout logic.

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.
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.

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.

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.

Except we're going to do just that, right now.
