8 Times You Got Dropped in at the Deep End

8 Times You Got Dropped in at the Deep End

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.

7 Unsolved Mysteries That Keep You Up at Night: Commenter Edition

7 Unsolved Mysteries That Keep You Up at Night: Commenter Edition

We recently pondered some unsolved mysteries, such as why Resident Evil's STARS members are allowed to wear whatever they like, and why the Templars at Abstergo Entertainment create videogames that make their enemies the Assassins look like awesome badasses. Then we asked you to share the mysteries that have been bothering you, and you obliged.

7 Genius Ideas That Started Life as Fan Mods

7 Genius Ideas That Started Life as Fan Mods

Sometimes a fan mod is so good it goes on to inspire something in a future game or a whole game of its own. Take freeform base building, one of Fallout 4's various killer features, which takes its cues from a mod for Fallout 3 called Real Time Settler and a mod for Fallout New Vegas called Wasteland Defense. Now take these other six genius ideas that started life as mods.

GTA Online Heist Mission Makes Us Steal Tanker of Meth

GTA Online Heist Mission Makes Us Steal Tanker of Meth

In our latest GTA Online heist mision, we kill many, many O'Neil brothers in order to steal their tanker full of ingredients for making crystal meth. Why we are stealing the ingredients instead of the finished product, we have no idea, but it makes for a fun day trip to the countryside.

We Take Out the Actual Trash in GTA Online Trash Truck Heist

We Take Out the Actual Trash in GTA Online Trash Truck Heist

The next stage of this GTA Online heist demands we dress up as binmen, steal a Trashmaster garbage truck, and pick up rubbish bags full of presumably stinky MDMA. This heisting lark seemed a lot more glamorous in Ocean's 11, to be honest.

9 Things You Really Can't Resist Doing in Games: Commenter Edition

Recently we confessed the videogame habits we just can't kick. We then asked you to tell us what you can't help doing when you play games, to make us feel better about our obsessive compulsion to stack guard corpses like firewood. You duly told us about these quirky, charming, homicidal game-playing foibles of yours.

GTA Online Lab Heist Continues With Grand Thefting Autos

GTA Online Lab Heist Continues With Grand Thefting Autos

As we prepare for our daring raid on Humane Labs (in which we will steal every cute animal that's not nailed down), we must appropriate a couple of heavy duty Insurgent SUVs from notoriously crazy PMC Merryweather. I'm sure they'll be fine with it, they probably like having their stuff stolen.

7 Nobodies Whose Lives Were Ruined by Game Protagonists

7 Nobodies Whose Lives Were Ruined by Game Protagonists

Videogame protagonists are big-picture people. They focus on the stuff like saving the galaxy, daring heists, or bringing criminals to justice. But spare a thought for the ordinary, everyday people your protagonists encounter along the way, who have to deal with the unintended consequences of all that reckless heroing.

GTA 5 on Xbox One Means First-Person Skydiving onto a Flatbed Truck

GTA 5 on Xbox One Means First-Person Skydiving onto a Flatbed Truck

Grand Theft Auto 5 is out now on Xbox One, so Mike, Jane and I headed into GTA Online to test the new 30 player servers, try out the first person viewpoint, and attempt to parachute onto the back of a flatbed truck from a dizzying height above Los Santos International Airport. First things first, right?

5 New Things in GTA 5 for Xbox One

The next gen version of Grand Theft Auto 5 is nearly here, but I know what you're thinking: "I already own GTA 5. Everyone in the world already owns GTA 5. I think it's the law? Why would I buy it again." Good question! Here are five new things the makers of GTA 5 think will convince you to give them the other half of all the world's money.

Grand Theft Auto: Wanted Level Challenge

Grand Theft Auto: Wanted Level Challenge

While we're usually shining paragons of law-abiding virtue here on Outside Xbox, very occasionally we do enjoy the thrill of a police chase. Naturally we opt for the most disproportionately punished crime in GTA - backing up to the gates of Fort Zancudo for three wanted stars - to initiate the Grand Theft Sporto Wanted Level Challenge. Longest survivor wins and direct interference with other competitors is strictly forbidden. Not that it's ever stopped us before.

Show of the Week: GTA 5 on Xbox One?

You know a place we haven't visited in a while? Los Santos. It's high time we returned to the state of San Andreas to have a poke around in GTA Online. After all, if rumours are to be believed, there could be a delicious next-gen version of Grand Theft Auto 5 waiting patiently in the wings, which would render our Xbox 360 copies completely obsolete. GTA 5 on Xbox One? Watch on while we weigh up the odds.

Grand Theft Sporto: Car Conkers

Grand Theft Sporto: Car Conkers

For the second round of our Grand Theft Sporto competition, we looked back into the mists of time and took inspiration from our school days. There's a certain purity of competition to playground games, mainly because kids are completely incapable of fair adjudication. These are games with very clear winners and losers - no room for disputes. With that in mind, we came up with the patently ludicrous GTA Car Conkers.

GTA Online: $10,000 Bounty Challenge

Join us for another Grand Theft Auto Online challenge! This time, Mike and I set $10,000 bounties on each other's heads, then see who can survive the longest. It's a set-up much like that of Batman: Arkham Origins, only instead of being highly equipped geniuses trained to the peak of human perfection, we're us, and instead of being hunted by elite assassins, we're running from a server full of psychopathic GTA Online players. Will we survive the night? Where did that guy get an attack helicopter? Is the grotto of the Playboy mansion a defensible position? Hit the jump to find out.

GTA 5 DLC: 6 Ideas To Change the Way You See GTA 5

GTA Online and How We Play It: Our Favourite GTA Online Moments

GTA Online and How We Play It: Our Favourite GTA Online Moments

It's Grand Theft Auto Online launch week and after some teething problems (many teething problems) it seems to be settling down and players are getting stuck in. Much like the main game, Grand Theft Auto Online is a gloriously madcap sandbox where all structure and planning goes out of the window the second you drive past a ramp, or a robbable shop, or something shiny. Now we're all finally playing it, Mike, Jane and I gather around nothing (Outside Xbox continues to have no watercooler) to discuss our favourite GTA Online moments so far.

GTA 5: What Does Trevor Do When We're Not Around?

GTA 5: What Does Trevor Do When We're Not Around?

Character switching is my favourite of Grand Theft Auto 5's new features. Being able to jump between protagonists at a moment's notice lets you fast travel around the map and keeps the game interesting. By interrupting a protagonist in the middle of his everyday activity you also get an insight into what his life is like when you're not hurling him out of helicopters. Michael tends to sit around looking depressed. Franklin spends a lot of time driving. And Trevor? Well. See for yourself in this compilation of the best Trevor vignettes from Grand Theft Auto 5's character switching. Warning: contains more than one instance of Trevor in his pants.

Show of the Week: GTA Online and 5 Things We Still Don't Know About It

Grand Theft Auto Online is the multiplayer segment of GTA 5. It launches on October 1st, which is coincidentally when you expect this site to fall into complete inactivity as we spend every waking hour robbing convenience stores to pay for a new haircut. We had a good run. In the meantime, please enjoy this Show of the Week that takes in GTA Online and the five crucial things we still don't know about it, plus Mike's triumphant return from that American football team and Jane's addiction to spider venom.

GTA 5 and How We Play It: Our Favourite GTA 5 Moments

Grand Theft Auto 5 is watercooler gaming at its best: a huge, anecdote-generating sandbox brimming with diversions, side missions and random encounters in which no two playthroughs are going to be the same. To share our experiences, Jane and I gather around the proverbial watercooler (Outside Xbox has no watercooler) to discuss our favourite GTA 5 moments so far.
