Let's Play: Geometry Wars 3 Dimensions on Xbox One

Let's Play: Geometry Wars 3 Dimensions on Xbox One

Geometry Wars 3 Dimensions lifts the kaleidoscopic action of twin-stick shooter Geometry Wars into a higher plane, wrapping its maps around three-dimensional shapes in the style of Super Stardust HD. The co-op mode is somewhat flatter, but it does let you shoot little shapes with up to three other players. Witness our co-op efforts in this Xbox One gameplay.

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is Bloody, Hilarious on Xbox 360

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is Bloody, Hilarious on Xbox 360

Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is a first-person fighting game in which knights smack each other with old timey melee weapons while no-good dirty-rotten archers take pot shots from afar. Sometimes a limb or a head will pop off. It is as hilarious as it is grisly and has come finally to the Xbox 360. Watch the gallant Sir Mike dismember me in this Xbox 360 gameplay.

Toybox Turbos Is Exactly Micro Machines

Toybox Turbos Is Exactly Micro Machines

If you're old and hoary enough to remember a) the word hoary and b) Micro Machines on 16-bit consoles, you'll understand why we were rather excited by Toybox Turbos. In all but name, it's a Micro Machines remake by its original development house, pitting four tiny cars against each other in a race across domestic tabletops. If you've played the classic games, you'll also be aware that it has one of the most fiendishly entertaining local multiplayer modes around, which is why that's exactly what we're playing here.

Let's Play Never Alone in Co-Op on Xbox One

Never Alone, or "Kisima Ingitchuna" in the Inupiat language, is a super charming retelling of an Alaskan Native fable, starring a little girl and her adorable white fox friend, who battle both evil and the elements. Our version of the story, played here in co-op on Xbox One, includes multiple screw ups as we accidentally steer Fox into the icy brine for the eighth consecutive time.

What's the Deal with Skylanders?

What's the Deal with Skylanders?

Millions of kids are transfixed by the Skylanders games, hoovering up expensive plastic models in order to unlock areas inside the videogame they (or rather their parents) have already bought. What is the special sauce that keeps them coming back? As Skylanders ignorami, we threw ourselves at the series' debut on Xbox One, Skylanders Trap Team, to see what the fuss is about.

Resident Evil Revelations 2's Moira Has Quite the Potty Mouth

Resident Evil Revelations 2's Moira Has Quite the Potty Mouth

The biggest surprise during our hour or so with Resident Evil: Revelations 2 wasn't being jumped by a slathering mutant zombie inmate or diced by some whirling-blade contraption, it was the first time Moira Burton dropped an f-bomb. In spite of the liberal gore and violence, Resident Evil's characters have always remained relatively composed in the past. We blame Barry Burton's absentee parenting. But then we always blame Barry Burton.

Let's Play Shadow Warrior on Xbox One

Let's Play Shadow Warrior on Xbox One

The original Shadow Warrior was a 1997 first-person shooter from 3D Realms that did for racism what Duke Nukem 3D did for sexism - that is, contained lots of it. This Shadow Warrior reboots that game, promising to bring it up to date while maintaining the feel of an old-school shooter. The main character is still called Lo Wang, but what are you going to do? You don't mess with a classic joke like that. Discover what has changed as we play Shadow Warrior on Xbox One.

Two Claptraps is Twice the Chaos in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Co-op Gameplay

Two Claptraps is Twice the Chaos in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Co-op Gameplay

What's the one thing more annoying than Claptrap? Two Claptraps. That is the regrettable entourage with which I wound up in this co-op session in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel. The mobile toaster's special ability in particular is enough to have you twisting your controller in half. Called vaulthunter.exe, this special ability is a randomised buff that affects the entire group and although each buff has its advantages, there are also disadvantages designed to be super irritating. Hit the jump to watch us struggle through the chaos in Xbox 360 gameplay.

Let's Play: Alien Isolation's Last Survivor DLC

Let's Play: Alien Isolation's Last Survivor DLC

As if Alien Isolation's brand new storyline wasn't exciting enough, for the day one DLC Creative Assembly somehow found time to meticulously render the Nostromo from the original Alien film and hire members of the original cast to reprise their characters. CA had access to production notes from the movie, so this is as accurate a recreation of the spaceship as you'll ever see and it looks stunning. Not much time for leisurely sightseeing with an Alien stalking the corridors though. Perhaps Sgt. Apone from not-that-Alien-film can help?
