This week on Outside Xbox

Aliens, GTA 5 and meditations on the similarities between Skyrim and, er, Knightmare.

Hello there Eurogamers and welcome to another digest of Outside Xbox goings-on, leading with our Show of the Week based on Aliens: Colonial Marines. Great news! Mike's expecting! Unfortunately, what he's expecting is a fist-sized baby alien with razor sharp teeth to burst through his chest and violently kill him in the process. Still, saves on those frightfully expensive post-natal classes.

In the immediate aftermath of a five-month delay to Rockstar's much anticipated crim-sim Grand Theft Auto 5 (which incidentally sees it poised to debut on the Xbox 720), Andy took it upon himself to provide a last-minute list of things he'd like to see fixed from GTA 4. To be honest, valid as Andy's suggestions are, this one's worth a watch if you just want to see Roman Bellic mercilessly abused.

Finally, we found ourselves pondering the similarities between the rich fantasy world of The Elder Scrolls and the not-quite-so-rich fantasy world of cult kids TV show Knightmare. What we ended up with was an almost shot-for-shot remake of the original Skyrim trailer but with the dramatic scenery replaced with rubbish hand-drawn backgrounds and the muscle-bound Dovahkiin swapped for year nine schoolchildren. It might actually be better?

If your time on earth hasn't been dramatically foreshortened by an aggressive alien parasite, perhaps you'd also like to spare a minute to check out our Achievement guides for Dead Space 3 or watch us attempt to identify the appeal of hunting in our Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2013 Let's Play? As always we'll be posting other interesting Xbox tidbits on outsidexbox.com, hope to see you there.
