It's essential for finding food, loot and hidden paths, and lets the developer tell stories of how New York was ravaged by a deadly lurgy. See how it works in the video.

Finally, Show of the Week recalls the grisliest video game X-ray modes in tribute to Sniper Elite 3. Specifically, in tribute to Sniper Elite 3's painstaking slow-motion demonstrations of what happens inside a human body hit with a .30 cal Springfield round. If that's your thing, you monster, compare and contrast with Skate 3, Blitz: The League 2 and Fight Club.

There you have it for one more week from Outside Xbox. If you could take some more video game videos between now and next time, such as the one in which we play Outlast, newly arrived on Xbox One at last, come to
