Watch: Death Star avenged in Star Wars Battlefront

Plus more from Outside Xbox.

History is written by the winners, and there are few pieces of revisionism more blatant than Star Wars: A New Hope.

Yes, the Empire appears to be pure evil and the Death Star a sinister megaweapon that must be destroyed, but what about all the people who called the Death Star home? What about the cat cafe on level three? What about the cosy Death Starbucks? Maybe Alderaan wanted to be exploded. You ever think of that?

We set out to right this historic wrong in Star Wars Battlefront's Battle of Jakku DLC, whose giant crashed Star Destroyer appears in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, don't you know. Watch us avenge the Death Star in the following gameplay. Never forget! Do it for the Empire!

In non Star Wars-related news this week, we began our annual Oxbox Xmas Challenge Contest: 12 days of challenges to determine who will be named Winner of Christmas.

In this Fallout 4 challenge, Mike is tasked with stripping to his underwear, punching the Mayor of Diamond City in the face, then escaping the city without being murdered by enraged guards. It feels like his entire time on Outside Xbox has been building up to this moment.

Finally this week, and in the spirit of the season, we attempt to brighten up the holidays for the residents of Fallout 4's Sanctuary by bringing some much-needed festive cheer to the tumbledown shanty town.

Some would say a light-up pixel art tree that requires three large generators is excessive in a town that doesn't have a clean water supply, but those people are grinches whom you should ignore.
