Rare Replay is a collection of 30 retro games to celebrate the 30th year of beloved British game developer Rare, the studio behind Perfect Dark, Viva Pinata and Banjo Kazooie. If you dig into the Rare Replay bundle on Xbox One you will also find Rare was the outfit behind stone cold classics Snake Rattle and Roll, Digger T Rock: Legend of the Lost City and Solar Jetman: Hunt For The Golden Warpship. Me either.
Show of the Week inspects Rare Replay and revisits Battletoads' turbo tunnel level for another crack at that game's notorious and aggravating hoverbike racing segment. It will be a cinch after all these years, I bet.
When we weren't cursing toads this week, we were wrangling cubes in Portally puzzler QUBE: Director's cut. In QUBE you play an amnesiac astronaut trapped in a giant spacefaring Rubik's Cube on a deadly collision course with Earth. Imagine Armageddon but with physics-based block puzzles in place of Bruce Willis drilling an asteroid. Watch us save the world with cubes, probably, in this gameplay.
Lastly in this week's Outside Xbox highlights reel, Andy ponders videogaming's kookiest creator cameos. Making a game is really difficult, as I understand it, so it's no surprise some developers need more recognition than a couple of BAFTAs. They therefore pop themselves into their own games for players to find, fourth wall be damned.
