Gang Beasts is Multiplayer Ragdoll Chaos at EGX 2014

Gang Beasts is a chaotic ragdoll brawler for two to eight players. Watch Mike and Andy play it at EGX 2014, scrapping across levels set around a ferris wheel, speeding lorry, subway train platform and fiery pit.

Flockers is Lemmings but with Sheep, Watch Us Play It on Xbox One

Flockers is Lemmings but with Sheep, Watch Us Play It on Xbox One

Lemmings was a 1991 Amiga game in which you had to keep marching horde of lemmings from killing themselves, rerouting your suicidal gang to a safe exit. Flockers is essentially that but with sheep, a dash of physics puzzling and more gore than Halloween at Eli Roth's house. Watch us shepherd these woolly idiots to safety in this Xbox One gameplay.

Recall Lets You Shoot Alien Women and Zombie Women in Clubwear

Recall Lets You Shoot Alien Women and Zombie Women in Clubwear

Recall is a reprehensible Xbox 360 indie game in which you start on a space station shooting alien women on their way to a nightclub, then are teleported to a dungeon where you shoot similarly attired zombie women. This is all with the aim of unlocking your lost memories, but these memories are poor CG renders of women in lingerie, so it is really not worth the effort. Watch us play Recall so you don't have to?

Warriors Orochi 3 Is Unbridled Chaos, Now On Xbox One

Warriors Orochi 3 Is Unbridled Chaos, Now On Xbox One

We're hungry for new games on the Xbox One at the moment, and Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate just about counts. Alright, it is technically an 'Ultimate' edition of a game that was released on Xbox 360 back in 2011, but regardless, it's been stuffed with extra characters and missions and gussied up for an Xbox One release. With little to no understanding of Warriors Orochi beyond the fact it involves huge battles and kill counts in the thousands, we lobbed ourselves into the fray.

Let's Play Evolve: All Hunter Classes

Let's Play Evolve: All Hunter Classes

Evolve, the new game from Left 4 Dead developer Turtle Rock Studios, shares a lot of DNA with its zombie-obsessed cousin. Where it differs most though, is in the fact that each of the playable characters has a different class, each with their own abilities and unique equipment. We took each one for a spin in an early PC build of the game to see how they work against Lovecraftian squid-faced horror monster The Kraken.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Has Limited Oxygen, Terrible Accents

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel Has Limited Oxygen, Terrible Accents

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel might be a 2K Australia joint, rather than a Gearbox Software one, but based on the segment we played, it's just as anarchic and entertaining as a full fat Borderlands. In this portion, which we played on an early PC version of the game, we're stuck on a moon with a limited oxygen supply and a selection of extremely narked baddies. Hit the jump to see how we get on.

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.

Let's Play Battlefield 4's Dragon's Teeth DLC

Let's Play Battlefield 4's Dragon's Teeth DLC

Decades from now in Videogame University, Professors of Videogames will point to Battlefield 4 as an example of how not to launch your game. It was a buggy, laggy mess, made all the more painful by the fact that there was a great game hidden under the strata of performance problems. Now that the netcode has been given a once over in a recent patch, EA and DICE were able to release this latest DLC, Dragon's Teeth, without the usual sheepish grin. We thought we'd dust off our (non existent) Battlefield skills and dive in.

That old chestnut. Hit the jump to watch Mike and me get stuck into some co-op gameplay, as we try to figure out what the hell is going on.

Hit the jump for a look at Destiny's character creator, a good chunk of single player and a couple of rounds of the game's domination-style multiplayer mode, control.

Sniper Elite 3 Gameplay: 15 Minutes Of Exploding Fascists

Sniper Elite 3 Gameplay: 15 Minutes Of Exploding Fascists

We can't get enough of Sniper Elite 3's ridiculously gory killcams. Every time we think we've seen it all, the game finds another obscure part of the human anatomy to blast out the back of a Nazi. We're not convinced it's ever going to get old, as our hooting and chortling in this video makes clear. So if, like us, you're grimly fascinated by the game's lack of squeamishness, then you can't miss this Let's Play.

Let's Play and Replay Super Time Force

Let's Play and Replay Super Time Force

Let's try to explain Super Time Force in a way that won't turn your brain into a grey matter smoothie. At its core, Super Time Force is a side-scrolling shooter, a la Metal Slug or Gunstar Heroes. The wrinkle is you have a certain number of opportunities to rewind and the game and play alongside replays of yourself. Add to that different characters, each with their own special abilities, and you have a game as intriguing as it is confusing. Watch us attempt to wrap our heads around it in Super Time Force gameplay after the jump.

The 3 Best Races In GTA Online

Since the introduction of the GTA Online Creator, over 1 million player-created jobs have been uploaded for others to play. Presumably most of them are terrible, however, so we've just picked the three top rated user-created races from GTA Online for an Outside Xbox mini tournament. Who will win? Who will explode?
