We play Middle-earth: Shadow of War from the beginning, in which Talion and his elf ghost bro Celebrimbor forge a new ring of power then lose it almost immediately to giant spider Shelob who is now a lady. What next for the wraith-and-ranger combo?
Our quest to achieve 100 percent completion in Red Dead Redemption rolls on this week with two stranger missions. In these we mule drugs for a weird racist, and gather flowers for a man's unseen but definitely still alive wife of 50 years. What could go wrong?
What do Ancient Egyptians and the internet have in common? They love cats. As such, these fuzzballs are everywhere in Assassin's Creed Origins and yes, praise Osiris, you can pet the heck out of them. Ellen and I do so in this new Assassin's Creed Origins gameplay. Also we slay a monster crocodile, perforate a giant hippo with the multi-arrow Warrior Bow, skewer a bunch of bandits, and raid some Ancient Egyptian ruins. But, most importantly: cats.
One of WWE 2K 18's pre-order bonus is legitimate Olympic gold medallist and 2017 hall of fame inductee Kurt Angle. In this WWE 2K18 gameplay, Mike and I pit two eras of Kurt Angle, his 2001 American Hero persona and his 2006 Wrestling Machine gimmick, against each other. Which Angle will come out on top? Watch and find out!
It's almost time for The Evil Within 2, the survival horror sequel set to put the 'scared' into 'I am scared of the Evil Within 2'. In this Evil Within 2 gameplay from the game's fifth chapter, Luke and I set out to explore a town hall that is less full of city administrators and more full of terrifying camera monsters and challenging photography.
Killer Instinct is among the Xbox One titles being zhuzhed up to take advantage of the Xbox One X and all the additional teraflopping it will do come launch in November. Get an eyeful of Andy's mummified fighter Kan-Ra giving Mike's dino-human hybrid what for in this fresh new 4k gameplay.
Rush: A Disney Pixar Adventure was originally a collection of Pixar-themed mini games for Kinect, launched in 2012 when that peripheral was a motion control system full of hopes and dreams and not the millstone briefly around the neck of the Xbox One. It's now time for that game's rebirth on the Xbox One X, where the extra graphical oomph makes a new Finding Dory world pop in 4k. Mike and Andy give it a whirl in the following Xbox One X gameplay.
In Forza Motorsport 7 on Xbox One X, Mike and Andy go for a spin at the Brands Hatch Grand Prix Circuit in a customised shark car and then at the Nürburgring in the Jaguar XJ220 favoured by Rocket Man Elton John. Get your eyes all over lovely Forza 7 Xbox One X gameplay in the following video.
Now we have our family back in Red Dead Redemption, I suppose we should spend some time with it, and not just because we're already halfway through a Jack mission and the game won't let us carry on until that's completed. So join us as we ride out with Jack to procure some new cattle for the Marston ranch, then afterwards ride off to Mexico to do weird stranger missions as soon as the game will let us.
This week in Red Dead Redemption we head to Cochinay to finally take out Dutch so we can get our family back. We've just remembered that family also includes old-timey prospector character Uncle but it's too late to back out now, the mission's already started.
Videogames are great, but did you know about this whole genre of games that don't require any electronics, instead determining outcomes with dice rolls? Us neither. So, with the help of Eurogamer's resident tabletop games expert Johnny Chiodini, we learned more about the rich, imagination-powered world of Dungeons and Dragons. Behold as we set out on an adventure that involves a clumsy pirate, a talking chicken and, somehow, The Vengabus. Please enjoy.
Forza Motorsport 7 on Xbox One X is going to be a visually spectacular treat in 4K and 60 frames per second. We've played a few races in a preview version and here is the delicious 4K gameplay to prove it. How will we fare in a wet weather race with no traction control or ABS? There goes the no claims bonus.
Hitman contract 1001 Moroccan Nights compels Andy to dress like a fortune teller and whack four targets in and around a Marrakech night market. Can he remain uncompromised while looking like a fancy dress genie and singing medleys from Disney's Aladdin? See for yourself.
Back in Red Dead Redemption's Blackwater, the net is closing on Dutch Van Der Linde, mostly thanks to his habit of standing in the middle of the street late at night shouting at people's windows. Before we take down Dutch, though, there's the little matter of our uncompleted drunksmanship challenge.
Rare's open world pirate adventure Sea of Thieves is best played with a full crew of friends, so that's why I recruited helmsman Westaway and bosun Ellen from Outside Xtra to help with this Sea of Thieves gameplay fresh from the show floor at Gamescom 2017. Join us for treasure, bad skeletons and us almost sinking when we crash the boat into the island we're aiming for. Yo ho!

After a hearty meal of glazed meats, Luke and I venture out to hunt monsters in Monster Hunter World, the first game in the popular series to arrive on Xbox.

I discover a horrifying new fave in this Call of Duty WW2 multiplayer gameplay, set on new multiplayer map Gibraltar: a Winchester 1897 trench gun loaded with incendiary shells, for a 'Dragon's Breath' flamethrower shotgun effect as harrowing as it is spectacular.
Hope County, Montana is the setting for Far Cry 5, and seems like a lovely place. There's beautiful scenery, plentiful fishing, and wide open skies, perfect for flying planes around in. The main drawback is the violent doomsday cult members who keep trying to kill you, as you shall see in this Far Cry 5 gameplay.
In featured Hitman contract Plywood and Paste, Agent 47 must return to his old ICA training grounds and ensure four targets meet with 'accidental' deaths. Are there enough accidental kills to go around at the ICA Training Facility? Watch and find out.
In Slime Rancher on Xbox One (free this month in Xbox's Games with Gold scheme) you play a slime-wrangling slime rancher, capturing slimes for your up-and-coming slime farm. A slime is a kind of space hopper that eats and poops.
