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?
Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham takes Batman and Robin to space in a Batrocket, but not before trashing the Batmobile, the Batwing, the Batcycle and the Batboat. We wreck up the Batcave and Batvehicles then do battle with a giant Batmonster as Robin and Alfred in this Xbox One gameplay.
What does spending real money get you in Dragon Age: Inquisition's multiplayer store? We open loot chests so you don't have to in this Dragon Age: Inquisition gameplay on Xbox One. Microtransactions ahoy!
What is more fun than assassinating evil Templars? Assassinating evil Templars with your friends, is what. Assassin's Creed: Unity is the first Assassin's Creed to offer co-operative multiplayer, so Jane, Mike and I took to the Paris rooftops to bust Templar heads as brightly coloured team.
Dragons are the apex predators in the world of Dragon Age: Inquisition, which makes you the bottom of the food chain as you begin the game and start exploring the scenic Hinterlands. Fight a dragon as a level four mage in Dragon Age: Inquisition and it will mess you up, as you will see in this Xbox One gameplay.
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.
The beginning of Dragon Age: Inquisition takes the newly appointed head inquisitor to rustic Redcliffe Farms in Ferelden's Hinterlands to fetch horses, close rifts and find a better hat for my female human mage. So begins the quest for new headgear in this new Xbox One gameplay.
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.
How to Survive: Storm Warning Edition is the Xbox One version of the zombie survival game we excelled at in co-op last year. Will we be similarly excellent in the new version's challenge modes?
In Sunset Overdrive you shoot and grind your way around in a city that pops with colour the same way its swollen mutant baddies pop with toxic energy beverage. Prepare to be overstimulated by the first two hours of Sunset Overdrive condensed into 12 minutes of rainbow-coloured chaos.
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.
Massive Cleavage vs Zombies contains both of those things and, what's more, is an indie game in which you play the barechested owner of the titular (haha) body part, carving up zombies with a meat cleaver in 2D side-scrolling 'action'. See for yourself as Andy and I sample the game on Xbox 360.
One Night Two Crazies is an indie game in which your 'friend' Chris has you 'test' his 'security system' by looking at a laptop and being murdered when you don't shut the door on him or his partner who is a giant spider silhouette. Andy and I submit ourselves for testing in this Xbox 360 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.
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?
If you missed out on excellent Hong Kong action thriller Sleeping Dogs on Xbox 360, you'll soon be able to get caught up with Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition on Xbox One. Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition gives the game a visual polish, with 1080p resolution, better draw distance and improved lighting effects, and also includes all 24 pieces of DLC released for the game. That includes the Nightmare in North Point story DLC, just in time for Halloween. Hit the jump to see it in action as Mike and I do some undercover police work, drive like lunatics and punch hopping vampires in the face.
Slender: The Arrival, is a sequel to Slender, the game that dumps you in the middle of a dark forest and tasks you with collecting pages while being stalked by the gangly horror known as Slenderman. The sequel shares a similar premise, but adds a creepy story, new gameplay mechanics and an even greater sense of creeping dread. Watch us get scared witless in this Xbox 360 gameplay.
We're back in the nonsensical world of D4 for part two of our journey into the feverish imagination of auteur game designer Swery. Expect owl attacks, copious vomiting and electric cyborg monsters in this Xbox One gameplay.
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. As Andy notes, the action resembles a boozy scrap in a pub car park at closing time, but with more and greater environmental hazards.
D4 is an Xbox One-exclusive fever dream from auteur game designer Swery, creator of Deadly Premonition. There is toilet-based time travel, a mute cat-woman carrying a rat in her mouth and, look, you had better see for yourself.
Defense Grid 2 is a sci-fi tower defense game for Xbox One in which a conga line of aliens tries to steal your precious cores while you try to kill them with strategically placed weapon towers. Observe as we defend a space station and a spiral-shaped city from alien core raids, with varying success.
Outside Xbox faces off against bulky beastie Goliath in monster-hunting action on Distillery, Evolve's most recently revealed map. Harpoon traps are laid, mobile arenas are deployed, and everyone gets set on fire in this new Evolve gameplay. Let's watch.
Far Cry 4's Shangri-La missions take you into Kyrati legend as a warrior who slows time with his bow and arrow, sics white tigers on demon enemies, and spins prayer wheels to restore peace and good times. See Mike play in mystical Shangri-La and snowy Kyrat in this new Far Cry 4 gameplay.
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 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?
