Let's Play Archive
To those fans dismayed by last year's Resident Evil 6, Resident Evil Revelations HD is a must. It's a much more focused outing than its messy predecessor, with just the right mix of icky enemies, creepy atmosphere and melodramatic schlock.
Type "zombie" into the search bar in the Indie Game Marketplace and check out just how many words you can pair with zombie to make a game premise. Zombie Accountant? Zombie Cow Milking? Zombie Outhouse? Zombie Outback. Let's go with that.
Come join the Outside Xbox crime crew as we play Monaco: What's Yours is Mine, an XBLA heist game with eight uniquely skilled characters. We'll be assigning each of you a codename. You're Badshoes. Don't argue.
It's not often you get a free game on XBLA, but you'll find that recent release Crash Course 2 can be downloaded completely gratis. That's because it's funded by a giant in the world of adding flavoured dust to corn tortilla chips, presumably in the hope that the goodwill will convert directly into inter-meal snacking. While we're not going to endorse any one brand of corn chips, even if they happened to be secretly our favourite, we thought we'd play a little split-screen and see how the game stands up.
Lately, our favourite Minecraft pastime is a mash-up of Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition's creative mode and Pictionary. Can you guess our inscrutable 3D doodles? Can we? Watch and find out.
Fuse, the game previously known as Overstrike, is the first Xbox 360 outing for Insomniac Games, creators of the Resistance and Ratchet & Clank series. The free demo is out now on Xbox Live, so join Mike and I as we take it for a co-operative spin, checking out each of the four characters' special abilities as we go.
Everyone knows sharks are the most dangerous creatures on Earth. Or is it humans? Well, it's definitely sharks in water. And it's probably humans on land - that makes sense. So at exactly what depth of water do sharks overtake humans on the dangerousness graph? This is a minefield. Sort of like the underwater minefield that features in Shark Attack Deathmatch, which we play here. And if that isn't the most unnecessarily laboured segue you've ever read, we'll try harder next time.
Persona 4 Arena has been out for a while in the States, but is finally coming out in Europe next week. Join us for a few rounds as we take a look at this stylish 2D fighter featuring bear suits, elevator attendants and bloodcurdling beefcake emperors.
Codemasters Racing Studio's latest is only a month away, so we thought we'd spend some substantial, quality time with the single player events available in this preview version of the game. GRID 2's world tour spans all corners of the globe, from street races in Dubai to drift events in the Japanese mountains. And as you'd expect from a Codies racer, everything looks positively delicious.
Ah, Minecraft Pictionary. It's the 3D blockery of Minecraft meets the inscrutable drawings of Pictionary in which you've got two minutes to do the bidding of a Pictionary card in Minecraft's creative mode. We play this crossover of our own devising in the video after the jump.
In Xbox Live Indie Game The Keep: Zombie Horde, you save fleeing survivors by shooting the zombies chasing them. The survivors want to get inside your keep, the zombies want to eat the survivors, you want to kill the zombies to buy better weapons in the next round. Got it? Then let's play.
The way Dead Island Riptide's new boat vehicle shreds zombies is gratifying - especially since you're not so invulnerable in a boat as you were in the tank-like cars of the original game. In this Dead Island Riptide gameplay, Andy and I speed-boost our way to the town of Halai, dabble with weapon mods and discover the sonic pulse grenade, which makes undead heads explode.
We've identified the reason to pick up Dead Island Riptide. New character John Morgan has a running kick that sends zombies cartwheeling and ragdolling about 30 feet. This is endlessly entertaining and, in a game where the rough edges are part of the charm, perfectly fitting. Watch on for 11 minutes of entirely new gameplay footage exclusive to Outside Xbox.
Uproar! is an Xbox Live Indie game where you punch people for no adequately explained reason. Watch as Jane and I take to the streets, dish out vigilante punishment and hit people with what appears to be a human thigh bone. For justice!
Minecraft's latest big update is upon us. We put one world's animal population limit to the test with the new spawn egg items, which let you pop into being new friendly creatures, villagers and enemy mobs with the pull of a trigger.
Cast your mind back a good 26 years and you might remember the most famous Mario clone of them all, Great Giana Sisters. Nintendo obviously didn't get the memo about imitation equalling flattery and started putting pressure on Rainbow Arts to withdraw it from sale. Now, the Giana Sisters are back in a game all of their own, but is it any cop?
JOIN Jane and I as we play BattleBlock Theater, the latest XBLA game from Castle Crashers developer The Behemoth. WATCH as we experience teamwork, exploding frisbees and some extremely mean cats. CLICK the read more button to read more.
With the brilliant BioShock Infinite eclipsing all other new games, sandboxy gem Terraria might pass you by. Mike and I bring both games together as we recreate the floating city of Columbia over Terraria's blocky landscape. Poorly.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 is out now. It's a CryEngine 3-powered celebration of dressing up like Swamp Thing and shooting people in the head from a long way away. Join me for a tour of the game's first mission, Operation Quarterback.
Here's the last instalment of my adventure as Andy's Shepard, in which the Mass Effect 3 Citadel DLC builds to a helplessly schmaltzy finale. Watch on for some spoilers, mild nudity and attempted dancing.
Welcome to the Gutter of Misery, next stop on Outside Xbox's tour of Bitterblack Isle. Would you believe it's not a scenic picnic spot? Also there's a giant floating eyeball monster who, it turns out, owns and mostly consists of the Abyssal Eye for which we are questing.
Let's play even more Mass Effect 3 as that game's fan-servicing Citadel DLC takes me and Andy's borrowed, mustachioed Commander Shepard into the depths of the Citadel archives and once more on board the good ship Normandy. Catch the second episode of gameplay after the jump, but beware story spoilers.
There has been a bit of a trend recently for turning po-faced motorsports, normally be the preserve of number-crunching driving sims, into kid-friendly casual racers. F1 Race Stars went the whole hog, transforming the F1 grid into a bunch of bobble-headed cartoons, whereas WRC Powerslide has simply taken WRC 3, pulled the camera out and added power-ups. So is it worth your Microsoft Points? Join motorsport fact cannon Mike and reluctant participant Andy to find out.
After Bulletstorm, we've been anticipating People Can Fly's take on Gears of War for some time now, and what better way to take Gears of War Judgment for a test drive than in cooperative mode? In this gameplay video of the highlights from the first hour of the campaign, Andy and I explore the new storyline structure, get a taste for the new 'Declassify' mission modifiers and work out how this stacks up against other Gears games.
Since my Commander Shepard is lost to the ages, I am playing Mass Effect 3's Citadel DLC with Andy's Shepard: a kind of space gorilla with a Gomez Addams pencil moustache. Come in, viewer, for Mass Effect 3's final slice of downloadable content. It's a glorious, cheesy wedge of Mass Effect fan service.
