Show of the Week celebrates 10 years of Bayonetta with the newly released remaster, buffed up for Xbox One and PS4 and bundled with a similarly remastered Vanquish, another decade-old PlatinumGames action joint. Take a watch of witch time, gun kata and spanking attacks in this week's episode, then stick around for an update on some exciting new things we're getting ready to try in next week's show.
This week Andy, having been shrunk and digitised, gets imprisoned in The Sims 4. There he must peacefully cohabit with four other Sims in a 100-tile micro-home, in the new Sims 4 Tiny Living DLC. Who will snap first? Find out within, while Mike and Jane get all nostalgic about it being 20 years since The Sims first came out.
Mike is back, along with his prized possessions: a pair of exquisite model cars, dredged from sewers beneath Outside Xbox, where no-one knows how they got there, not even Andy or I. Anyway, Show of the Week weighs up schlocky shooter Zombie Army 4: Dead War, in which Mike searches a zombie-infested zoo for undead penguins. Subscribe for this show every week, why not?
Mike is away this week so there's no-one to stop Andy and I from flushing toy cars, getting pumped for Doom Eternal (also Animal Crossing) and ragging on Doom Annihilation, the latest film adaptation from the Doomiverse.
Remember the Show of the Week where we joked all games would be delayed except one? Behold our powers of prophecy, because it's getting perilously close to that actually being the case, with Cyberpunk 2077, Final Fantasy VII remake, Avengers, Dying Light 2 and Vampire The Masquerade Bloodlines 2 all missing their original release dates. Join us as we talk about what's going on and why, then stick around for the best of your YouTube comments from the last seven days.
Journey to the Savage Planet is a sci-fi exploration game in which you play as a resourceful astronaut scoping out a new world for human habitation. Jane and Mike have played it and are here with their hot takes and cool jokes. Keep watching for your YouTube comments and subscribe for Show of the Week every Friday!
2020 is here friends, and with it come brand new videogames! But which one game would we most want to save from being delayed until 2021, if given the power? Join us as we talk it out in this first Show of the Week of the year, then stick around for the choicest YouTube comments of the last few weeks.
2006 adventure horror game Pathologic was a cult hit, despite being one of the weirdest videogames ever made. So it's with cautious optimism that we approach Pathologic 2, a reimagined version of the same story with a bunch of graphical, gameplay and story improvements.
Show of the Week takes Terminator-based first-person shooter Terminator Resistance for a spin, with Andy as Sgt. Jacob Rivers of the titular Resistance, on a mission to save humanity from spidery terminators, exploding terminators and occasional terminator terminators. Then it's over to the best YouTube comments of the week. Don't go away.
Jedi Fallen Order is the new Star Wars game from Titanfall developer Respawn. In it, you play as Cal Kestis, a Padawan who survived the Jedi-destroying Order 66 and is justifiably ready to go ham on the Empire with a lightsaber. Join us for Jedi Fallen Order gameplay on Xbox One as Mike and Andy tackle the game's opening, then stick around for Jane with the finest YouTube comments of the week.
Andy and Mike solve pirate murders with a supernatural pocket watch in Return of the Obra Dinn on Xbox One. Get an eyeful of Xbox One gameplay then stick around for the week's choicest YouTube comments and Oxventure Dungeons and Dragons chat.
If you've been on social media lately, you might have caught some hilarious and viral gifs in which WWE 2K20 appears to be kind of glitchy. Join Mike and I chasing huge Twitter numbers by trying to get WWE 2K20 to glitch out, then stick around for your comments and a sneak peek at the next Oxventure Dungeons and Dragons video.
Red Dead Redemption Online's new Frontier Pursuits update adds new roles, such as bounty hunter or master trader, to give players something to actually do in the game. But is it enough to get us back into RDO? Or is it too little too late? Andy and Mike talk it out in Show of the Week, along with your comments and an original mouth harp soundtrack by Andy Farrant.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare is almost here, so join Mike and Andy on the green sofa for chat about its horror-inspired campaign, new playable characters and elaborate facial hair. Plus, your comments!
Mike has escaped from his bank vault prison just in time to tell us all about The Surge 2, a sci-fi Dark Souls alike in which you construct a mech suit to die in over and over again because it's really difficult. Also on the menu: your comments, freshly picked and served piping hot. Enjoy!
Loot shooter Borderlands 3 is on the menu in this week's episode, specifically in split screen co-op mode, but not before we get locked in a John Wick escape room for some reason. Will we make it out? Is there such a thing as too much loot? And didn't there used to be three of us? Find out in Show of the Week.
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.

Jane's in time out after destroying the studio last week, so let's distract ourselves from the weird, non butt-friendly new sofa by talking Blair Witch, the new first person horror game based on the hit movies about people being confused in the woods.
Mike and I as talk looty-shooty Borderlands 3, then Jane gets her hands on the cursed blade Frostmourne and swears to wreak vengeance on I guess whoever shows up. Set your eyes on that new Borderlands 3 gameplay in Show of the Week, followed by the choicest YouTube comments of the last seven days.
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. It was made by Dark Souls developer From Software, somehow. See for yourself in Metal Wolf Chaos XD gameplay in Show of the Week, followed by PAX West news and the choicest YouTube comments of the last seven days.
Mike and I play The Outer Worlds, upcoming sci-fi RPG from the makers of Fallout New Vegas, before Mike is detained for suspected shark crimes.

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. Join us on Show of the Week for Wolfenstein Youngblood gameplay, courtesy of Jane and Mike, stick around for your comments, and subscribe to Outside Xbox for a video like this every Friday.
