Action RPG Greedfall takes centre stage in this week's episode, alongside our stylishly behatted player characters. Who has the better tricorne? What are the romance options like? Will I ever pay off my escalating debts to Andy? Find out, mostly, in Show of the Week.
This week Andy is firmly in favour of Remedy's spooky new action adventure Control, firmly against cannibal horror clowns, and drawing a complete blank on Outside Xbox's mysterious New Director who is either new or has been here, in the office at the end of the hall, since before the dawn of human memory. Management, am I right?
Outside Xbox hit one billion views on YouTube this week, so let's celebrate by talking Man of Medan, the first in episodic anthology horror series The Dark Pictures.

Mike has jailbroken himself so let's celebrate by playing Metal Wolf Chaos XD, a game in which the President of the United States somersaults out of the White House in a mech suit.

Wolfenstein: Youngblood takes the Nazi-killing gameplay of the previous games in the series and moves it to the neon-soaked 1980s where you play as BJ Blazkovic's twin daughters Jess and Soph.

Outer Worlds is a sci-fi RPG from the makers of Fallout New Vegas, also known as Mike and Andy's favourite ever Fallout. They react to Outer Worlds gameplay in Show of the Week, then along comes Star Wars, F1 2019 and professional wrestling for the comments section with yours truly.
The Sinking City is an open-world detective game set in the oppressively odd burg of Oakmont, where it falls to you to investigate murders amidst the flooded streets and whale carcasses. Does it scratch our specific itch for Lovecraftian horror and solving crimes? Find out in Show of the Week.

What's that pool of stuff dissolving my kombatant's head? Oh, it's acid. Discover the other answers and more in today's episode.
Left 4 Dead 2 is incredibly almost 10 years old, yet remains the gold standard for co-op zombie shooters. World War Z, based on the book that inspired that Brad Pitt movie, hopes to change that.
