Any Slytherin will tell you ambition is an admirable quality. But much like Mrs Weasley fighting Bellatrix Lestrange, sometimes ambition goes too far, as in the case with these ambitious videogames that overpromised, under-delivered, and ended in disappointment.
A Way Out is a co-op prison break adventure from the team behind Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. In part three of our A Way Out split-screen gameplay, Andy and I take part in a daring parkour chase through a construction site, and knock over a gas station in our own inimitable style.

They say you can't make an omelette without breaking a few eggs, but it's equally true that you can't be a videogame hero without ruining the lives of a few random bystanders. At least, that's the way it seems, when you consider how these seven videogame heroes destroyed these people's homes, livelihoods and skeletons, whether for the greater good, or just because they thought it'd be a laugh, Kratos. Honestly, that guy.
Fortnite has been a phenomenal success, but there are Battle Royale inspired games that are lining up for a shot at that same glory. Here are 8 new games that could well be the next Fortnite. Though maybe wait to place a down payment on that gold-plated yacht, developers.

Want to hide an in-joke in your game? An Easter egg is just the thing. Even better, if you want to throw shade on some other game in the name of friendly rivalry or outright snark, Easter eggs are the perfect delivery vector. Have a watch of these shady eggs that were sly in-jokes and see for yourself.
It seems strange that one of the games we're most anticipating this year is a game from 2011. That's just how good Dark Souls is. Here's the very first gameplay from Dark Souls Remastered.

Show of the Week has a go on Attack on Titan 2, the action game based on the popular animated series about intense teens fighting giant naked zombies.
Sometimes in a game you find yourself in a no-win situation, where the only final outcomes are bad. All you can do is play the game, make your choices and live with the consequences, no matter how bleak. Like in these games, for instance, in which each ending is more of a downer than an all-Radiohead mixtape.
GTA Online's Doomsday Heist continues with latest mission Server Farm, in which the heist crew dons Sam Fisher-style black combat gear and night vision goggles, then pilot the Akula stealth chopper into a high-tech Los Santos government facility, there to swipe precious data from the server farm itself.

In-game enemies get smarter all the time, but sometimes it's a relief when the AI is a bit artificially un-intelligent, just to give us a break. Like when they pop out of cover into our crosshairs, loudly announce they are reloading, or politely wait in line to attack us one manageable goon at a time, for instance.
OnRush might at first appear like Motorstorm with a pastel paint job, but even though it is from the same team that made PS3 classic Motorstorm, class-based OnRush has as much in common with Overwatch as any other racing game.
GTA Online's Doomsday Heist continues! Now the crew must infiltrate Fort Zancudo in military disguise to steal the flight data for an Akula stealth helicopter. Then it's off to nick the Akula itself, because we gather it is absolutely mission critical for the next, probably even more chaotic, mission.
