With Black Panther destroying box office records worldwide, Show of the Week reminisces over Marvel videogames, to determine if they're all terrible or if there are hidden (Infinity) gems amongst all the dreck.
The point of rebooting a franchise with a dark and gritty new vibe is to make it cooler, but for every Chris Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy there's a game reboot that, in the very antithesis of being cool, tried much too hard.
Kingdom Come: Deliverance is an ultra realistic historical RPG, sure, but that doesn't mean that every quest needs to be of earth-shattering importance. Sometimes you just need to go on a quest to pick up some things for a wedding. See how we get on as medieval wedding planners in this Xbox One X gameplay.
You don't get to be a boss in a fighting game by being nice to people. You get there by crushing everyone who dares oppose you, ideally with some kind of unblockable laser that takes off half their health. Some would call that cheap, and, after seeing these fighting game bosses in action, we 100 percent agree.
This time in GTA Online's Doomsday Heist, we must use our stolen Deloreans to hack a fleet of enemy vehicles in a high-octane, high-altitude chase. Watch on for GTA Online gameplay from the Signal Intercepts heist set-up mission.
Metal Gear Survive is an online co-op survival game that divides Metal Gear fans into two camps: those who hate it, and those who really hate it. Does it deserve all the suspicion? Show of the Week investigates.
As people thrilled by both games and technology, we are susceptible to a buzzy new game gimmick that, in retrospect, was faddier than extreme planking. It's now obvious these trends couldn't last, but at the time they were hotter than the harlem shake circa 2013.
Embarking on a forest picnic to celebrate their recent piratical successes, our heroes find themselves embroiled in what could be their most dangerous adventure yet, and under the watchful eyes of a live audience.
The new Discovery Tour mode in Assassin's Creed Origins makes history fun by letting you clamber all over it while dressed as an Egyptian Pharaoh. At the same time, you might even find yourself learning a thing or two. We certainly did, and in the spirit of historical research we present to you now the eight weirdest things we learned while playing.
Starpoint Gemini Warlords has landed on Xbox One with a cargo hold full of space combat, strategic space sim and role-playing game elements. Mike is also delighted to learn he can fully ram a spaceship with his spaceship in this Starpoint Gemini Warlords gameplay.
Show of the Week salutes Kingdom Come Deliverance, the ultra-realistic medieval action RPG arriving on Xbox One, PS4 and PC on release date 13 February 2018. Then, in tribute to Kingdom Come Deliverance's brutal realism, Andy gets nude and punches the Jarl of Markarth in a Skyrim Challenge of the Week.
Game adaptations of movies should be great, on account of them combining two of our favourite things. Sadly, most tie-in games are not only inferior to the movie on which they're based, but also seem to go out of their way to ruin iconic moments from those films. See for yourself in these seven famous movie moments that got a dramatic rewrite for the videogame version.
Wolfenstein 2 DLC gameplay in which Andy slithers through tiny vents and loudly murders Supersoldaten as Agent Silent Death, whose codename is ironic for the purposes of this video.
Next up in GTA Online's Doomsday Heist, we must steal four Deloreans, respray them, and race them across town pursued by cops, players and apparently the Joker. See for yourself in this high-octane GTA Online gameplay.
Full motion video or "FMV" games were interactive movies in which the action took place in grainy video clips, the gameplay was minimal, and the story was nonsense. Join us for our eight favourite, unforgettable slices of FMV weirdness.
Show of the Week asks how is GoldenEye 20 years old? What happened to the Xbox 360 version that quietly died? And who is deadliest in the classic GoldenEye multiplayer scenario (license to kill, pistols, facility)? Is it Mike or is it Jane? There is literally one way to find out, therefore watch on.
Romancing someone in a videogame is usually no more complicated than winning enough tickets on skee ball to buy a novelty comb, only instead of a novelty comb, you earn a smoochy cutscene. It's not this easy for everyone all the time, however, especially when they're busting out chat-up lines so cheesy they would embarrass James Bond. Take a listen to these cringey pick-up lines that didn't work, and probably never will.
Space sim Kerbal Space Program has come to Xbox One with its adorable green astronauts, so we pit Mike against Jane to see who can build the best, least deadly spaceship. How hard can it be? It's not exactly rocket science oh wait.
In Hitman Escalation mission The Cheveyo Calibration, from Hitman's Game of the Year Edition, Agent 47 must whack a series of goons (and one doctor) in Marrakesh's night market, mostly with a sniper rifle and entirely while wearing the new Raven Suit, which is both suave and tactical. See for yourself in this Hitman gameplay.
Some fighting game finishers are so gross, weird or humbling we are mortified even thinking about the times we lost to them. Here are eight fighting game finishers so humiliating that you could die of embarrassment. And also the many, many injuries you sustained.
Villains come in all shapes and sizes (mostly big) but if they have one thing in common, it's their ambition to not accidentally help the good guy save the world. Yet this happens more often than these so-called bad guys would care to admit. Just think of the occasions on which these antagonists saved the day with embarrassing self-sabotage.
Andy and I thought our GTA Online heisting days were behind us until Mike gathered us in his new underground bunker for One More Job. Witness the Outside Xbox heist crew reformed for GTA Online's Doomsday heist.
Hitman Elusive Target The Sensation is one Jonathan Smythe: a popstar accused of murder and hiding out at a party in Paris. See us hunt down the Bieber-ish fugitive in this Hitman gameplay, then go absolutely spare trying to poison his glass of vodka, from which he drinks with infuriating infrequency.
Guess all that sun praising finally paid off because Dark Souls Remastered is arriving this year, on release date 25 May 2018. Here's everything you need to know about the 4k-ready remaster of this classic RPG.
In Show of the Week, Andy scrutinises upcoming fighting game Dragon Ball FighterZ, schools Mike in Dragon Ball lore, and undertakes a brutal challenge in inscrutable SNES brawler Dragon Ball Hyper Dimension. Watch now and judge his overall performance, why don't you.
