Show of the Week inspects A Way Out, a split-screen co-op adventure in which odd couple Leo and Vincent must work together to escape prison, settle old scores and master mini games that include horseshoes, darts and baseball.
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.
Who hasn't fantasised about being a train driver? Literally no-one. Now if you've got an Xbox you can pretend to be one from the comfort of your couch and it's not as easy as it looks. You would not believe the number of ways driving a train can go terribly wrong, as we see in Train Sim World on Xbox One.
Show of the Week sizes up Sea of Thieves, the open-world piracy game that launches next week, at long last. What's animal trafficking doing in a social buccanneering sim? We aim to find out.
We're not averse to putting in loads of effort for a worthwhile result, but we are dead against working our socks off for an insultingly shabby reward - as in the case of these unlockable game characters who were so much more hassle than they were worth.
Game characters tend to be good at what they do, but sometimes they want to stretch themselves and step out of their comfort zone. This is presumably how we wound up with these seven bizarre and unexpected guest appearances that really put the "oh?" in cameo.
In this QUBE 2 gameplay, we play an explorer puzzling our way out of a giant alien Rubik's Cube, equipped only with science gloves that change the colours and properties of the ubiquitous cubes. Behold QUBE 2 gameplay on Xbox One and see for yourself who comes out on top: us or the six-sided polyhedra.
Rainbow Six Siege's new mode is Outbreak, a co-op event that is part of the Operation Chimera update. Witness Mike and his team of operators take on hordes of infected as they attempt to rescue a doctor who may hold a key to the cure. She had better hold it, to be honest, after all the trouble we go through to find her.
Show of the Week investigates Rainbow Six Siege's Operation Chimera, a zombie-themed update that adds co-op campaign Outbreak, in which you and your operator buddies must gun down a spiky, explosive zombie horde.
Despite us being sad about it on the internet, videogames continue to get cancelled after giving us a glimpse of what they might be like, and as we all know, the best games are the ones you never get to play. Here are seven games we'd love to play that are never going to see the light of day.
Bridge Constructor Portal combines Portal and the constructing of bridges, adding teleportation and GLaDOS to the civil engineering mix, now on Xbox One. Witness our bridge construction efforts in this Bridge Constructor Portal gameplay.
Side scrolling beat-'em-ups need to have loads of enemies in them, otherwise they would be 10 minutes long. But you can't just recolour everyone or make the player fight evil clones of themselves forever. That's how we ended up with bizarre boss designs that are surely the result of a late night, a looming deadline and way, way too many cups of coffee. Consider these, our eight favourites.
Assassin's Creed Origins DLC Curse of the Pharaohs adds giant scorpions, zombie mummies and furious jackal-headed warriors to its heretofore historically faithful Ancient Egypt. What the heck is going on? Find out along with Ellen and I in this gameplay footage.
In Show of the Week Andy explains what's on the cards for Soulcalibur's imminent return, with new fighter Groh and a new clash system arriving with Soulcalibur 6 later this year. Later in the show, Mike challenges him to re-create an iconic game hero for an unlicensed cameo in Soulcalibur 4, via that game's custom character creator.
Behold Far Cry 5 co-op gameplay in which Andy and Luke befriend angry bear companion Cheeseburger, do quad bike stunts, blow things up and are in turn blown up in two-player co-op mode.
Fanservice is when a thing is designed above all else to please fans. In games it is often delivered in packages of downloadable content, so the fan-pleasing weirdness is kept at arm's length from the main game. Please enjoy these, our eight favourites.
Call of Cthulhu: The Official Videogame promises to bring creepy, Lovecraftian horror to your Xbox One and PS4 and this is the first gameplay footage. In it you play a private investigator sent to Darkwater Island to investigate the murder of an artist, but as is custom for Lovecraft there are also weird cults, sea monsters and your own fragile sanity to contend with.
In this second episode of Kingdom Come Deliverance gameplay, Lady Stephanie needs a jewelled crown and fine wine for a fancy wedding in apparent 'courtship' quest At Your Service My Lady. It's our heroic duty as a medieval wedding planner to do anything, including murder and archery contests, to fetch both things.
In this Xbox One gameplay, we collect some shapes, avoid other shapes, and generally enter a psychedelic trance in geometric neon action platformer Octahedron. Shapes!
Anime adventure game Forgotton Anne is coming soon to Xbox One and PS4. Have a watch of this Ghibli-looking game in Xbox One gameplay on Xbox One, in which we murder a talking scarf and replumb some magical electricity, but fail to discover why Forgotton is spelt that way.
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.
