Trials Fusion is Full Of Secrets, Crashes, Restarts

Trials Fusion is Full Of Secrets, Crashes, Restarts

With Outside Xbox only a year and a half old, and younger than Trials Evolution, you've probably not been exposed to our intense love of all things Trials. Rest assured, we're all very excited Trials Fusion has arrived on Xbox One and with it the return of just-one-more-go, no-I-can-definitely-do-it-this-time gaming. Seems the perfect opportunity to play a 'friendly' game of multiplayer, right?

Sniper Elite 3: Mike's Sniping Masterclass

Sniper Elite 3: Mike's Sniping Masterclass

As the member of the Outside Xbox team who is legendarily awful at stealth games, who better to play a full mission of a game that involves carefully scanning the environment, sneaking to a secure location and completing objectives with a minimum of fuss? Andy, obviously. But he was busy, so instead you've got me declaring war on all the Nazi testicles in Africa and Jane struggling to conceal her dismay. We think that works too.

Let's Play Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z

Let's Play Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z

Spin-offs don't get much more bizarre than Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, in which ultra hardcore hack and slasher Ninja Gaiden now has a neon-lit, cel-shaded, zombie-infested cousin. We've already established Yaiba is a gross jerk, but it's time to fire up the game and see if it has any redeeming features. Join us on a voyage of discovery after the jump.

Let's Play: Titanfall Beta

Let's Play: Titanfall Beta

Now the Titanfall beta has thrown the doors open to all, hopefully you've experienced Titanfall for yourself. If not, you're missing out on something very special indeed. Ignore the people who say it plays just like Call of Duty because, basically, they're playing it wrong. Titanfall fixes everything people complain about in Call of Duty, including the online insta-deaths and the difficulty less skilled players have with precise twitch shooting. Topping the Titanfall leaderboards involves mastering both the free-running pilot and the heavily armed titan plus finding a loadout for each that works for you. Watch the video and you'll see us get that plate spinning both very wrong and very right.

Outside Xbox Rolls Out In World of Tanks Xbox 360 Edition

Outside Xbox Rolls Out In World of Tanks Xbox 360 Edition

This whole free-to-play thing gets a bad rap. Within the first 10 minutes of launching World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition, we were trundling as a platoon towards the front line and our first victory in customised tanks. At no point did the game grind to a halt and refuse to move until we'd handed over our hard earned. What's more, it's surprisingly fun to play as well, as you attempt to wrestle five tons of diesel-powered pig iron into a tactically advantageous position. See how we managed after the jump.

Is This Gaming's Most Useless Detective? - Let's Play: The Raven

Is This Gaming's Most Useless Detective? - Let's Play: The Raven

Swiss police officer Anton Jakob Zellner, protagonist of The Raven, is singularly the worst detective we've ever encountered in a videogame. He has terrible skills of observation and deduction, to the point where the nine-year-old boy in the game is more astute. You feel less like a player and more like a decreasingly patient chaperone to this bumbling wannabe Poirot. He's even got the same moustache as Agatha Christie's character, for pity's sake. Watch the video after the jump as Andy and I investigate what the devil is going on in the first hour of The Raven.
