Video: Mortal Kombat finishers with some explaining to do

Plus more from Outside Xbox.

Hi Eurogamers, and welcome to your weekly recap of goings-on at Outside Xbox. This week, we've come to the conclusion that Mortal Kombat X will be the goriest Mortal Kombat yet, if the painstakingly anatomical gameplay footage is anything to go by.

Presumably it will also be the last ever Mortal Kombat, after the designers are imprisoned for the good of public safety. So let's recall Mortal Kombat's most bizarre and still unexplained finishers before they're seized as evidence, shall we?

After all the ultraviolence, we needed something a bit more relaxing, such as the soothing Ori and the Blind Forest, out now on Xbox One. It's a puzzle platformer in which you play Ori, a forest spirit who ventures through dense and dangerous woods, unlocking new abilities as he goes, Metroidvania-style. Get the lowdown on that, plus what the developers of some of the XBLA greats of the past are up to now, in Show of the Week.

Finally, we've been playing Far Cry 4 DLC Valley of the Yetis, in which Ajay Ghale is stranded in a forsaken valley by a helicopter crash, stripped of his equipment and at the mercy of the local wildlife: giant, angry yetis with a taste for people. But maybe the yetis are just misunderstood, like the sasquatch in Red Dead Redemption? There's only one way to find out, so join us on a yeti hunt in this Xbox One gameplay.

Thanks for watching, Eurogamers, let's meet back here again next week. For more videos in the meantime, visit us at
