So you've downloaded Fallout 4 DLC Vault-Tec Workshop, and you want to embark on your career as a maniacal overseer, torturing Vault-dwellers under the flimsiest of scientific pretexts. Of course you do! Here's how.
This weekend is Star Wars Celebration: an annual celebration of all things Star Wars. It was during last year's celebration when publisher EA unveiled the first proper trailer for Star Wars Battlefront, and we can expect more news this year - about the upcoming Death Star DLC, for instance, which looks likely to feature Chewbacca as a playable hero. That's not the only Star Wars gaming treat heading our way soon, though, as we discover later in the show.
With certain achievements, game developers indulge in some crafty in-jokery that you'll only get with a bit of insider knowledge, leaving those not in the know utterly baffled as to what they've just unlocked and why. Join us for seven achievements and trophies that really need some explaining.
Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter is the latest game in Frogware's series about the world's greatest detective and his newly hipster-fied sidekick Watson. Join us as we investigate a missing father with disguises, eavesdropping, and sending Victorian urchins up chimneys.
Playdead's Inside is so intriguing that we couldn't just leave it where we finished last time. Maybe we should have though, as things get much, much worse for our nameless child protagonist from here on out.
Overcooked is a co-op cooking game for 1-4 players that brings to mind Gang Beasts if the fighters had decided to open a restaurant together instead of trying to kick each other off Ferris Wheels. Watch Mike and I get to grips with it as we attempt to serve up soup on a pirate ship and hamburgers on a pair of moving trucks.
Virtual Reality headsets may be the next big thing in gaming, but you're going to need actual games to play on them to make them more than just extremely heavy, not very attractive hats. But, now that Phil Spencer has confirmed that Project Scorpio will support VR you officially have our permission to get excited. Here are seven upcoming VR experiences that look like they'll be well worth abandoning the stupid real world for.
Show of the Week: Batman Return to Arkham and 5 Gotham Doctors Who Need To Be Struck Off Immediately
Batman: Return to Arkham is a collection of the first two Arkham games, Asylum and City, as well as all their DLC, available for the first time on Xbox One and PS4. It's also delayed indefinitely, because it looks awful. Show of the Week ponders Return to Arkham, as well as asking, Seinfeld-style, what is up with the terrible state of the medical professionals in Gotham. You'll have to imagine the slap bass sounds we're making right now.
Some games take a little time to get warmed up. Other games boot you straight into the action, barely giving you enough time to work out the buttons before you're attacked by a monster the size of a building, or dropped into the middle of the Normandy landings. Without further ado, here are eight games that drop you in right at the deep end.
Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom is the game of the popular anime series about giant naked zombies and the shouting teens that fight them. Witness us tackle part of the battle of Trost in this Xbox One gameplay.
7 Days to Die is an open-world zombie game in which you have to survive as long as possible without dying from the elements or becoming zombie chow. It is not a challenge to try and die before a week has elapsed, we discovered too late. See it in action as we play as Michonne from The Walking Dead in this Xbox One gameplay.
Hitman's fifth elusive target is Vito Duric, a Hague-indicted arms dealer who is now spending 72 quality hours in an underground parking garage in Marrakech, Morocco. The perfect opportunity for the three of us to do some running and gunning of our own.
Fallout 4 DLC Contraptions Workshop lets you go all Rube Goldberg, creating crazy and complicated gadgets for your settlements out of wasteland junk. Watch us create our very own Outside Xbox fireworks factory in this Fallout 4 Contraptions Workshop gameplay.
If you've ever watched us play a videogame, you know we're no stranger to the game over screen. But though they're usually well deserved (for forgetting how grenades work or for walking off a cliff, say) there have been several occasions on which we've been fooled by convincing trick facsimiles of a real game over. Consider the fake game overs in which it wasn't actually game over and you totally fell for it.
From E3 2016 we ponder the things that have us excited for 2K's upcoming open-world organised crime simulator Mafia 3, including its unique setting and story, along with the ways it lets you manage your criminal empire.
Join us Ghost Recon Wildlands gameplay from two perspectives and play styles at E3 2016, as we interrogate baddies, secure intel and blow stuff up. There's no "aiee" in "team", Mike.
In this mission from Ubisoft's Deadliest Warrior-style fantasy battle game For Honor, Mike and I play as hairy vikings taking down an army of Samurai and kill their fearsome commander. How, you ask? With a giant axe, we enthusiastically respond.
Behold brand new Xbox One gameplay of Dead Rising 4, the latest instalment in Capcom's zombie smashing series, including the new exo suits, along with weaponised vehicles and face-pulling selfies.
Party Hard tells the heartwarming story of a man who is kept awake by parties, and so goes to those parties and kills everyone. Watch Jane and I take down a backyard barbecue, a house party and a rural biker bash in this Party Hard Xbox One gameplay.
Set in Marrakesh, Morocco, A Gilded Cage is Hitman's third episodic mission, where Agent 47 is tasked with assassinating Swedish banker Claus Hugo Strandberg and military General Reza Zaydan. Discover how each of us kills Strandberg and Zaydan in this Hitman gameplay.
An announcement for Red Dead Redemption 2 could be here sooner than the 7:10 from Blackwater. Very little is known so far about the rumoured game; here are the eight most pressing questions that the next Red Dead games needs to answer.
Fallout 4's long-promised mods have finally arrived on Xbox One and the mod store is already starting to fill up with ways for you to mess around with your copy of Fallout 4. So what's there from the get go? Here are seven mods that caught our eye.
Hitman's second elusive target is Congressman Anthony L. Troutt, a future Presidential hopeful with past shady enough that someone wants him dead for it. There's a 48-hour window of opportunity to take him out while he visits Silvio Caruso in Sapienza, so nature's perfect weapon, Andy and Jane, head to Italy to get the job done.
Mirror's Edge fans who have been waiting over seven years for a follow-up to the original game can have a go on prequel-slash-reboot Mirror's Edge Catalyst a week early if they subscribe to EA Access. Maybe the head start will give Faith's crew of runners time to improve their delivery service, so they're no longer in the company of the rest of these catastrophic couriers.
Ok, we don't actually start the revolution in this gameplay from the first hour of Homefront: The Revolution, but after top resistance man Walker is captured in the opening minutes, it's up to us to lead this ragtag band of guerilla fighters to victory over our North Korean oppressors. This involves exploding barrels, motorbike chases and a field nipple-ectomy, almost, as you will see in this Xbox One gameplay.
