Watch: Everyday items we're now afraid of thanks to Hitman's Agent 47

Plus more from Outside Xbox.

Hello, Eurogamers, and welcome to your weekly sampler of moving images and sounds from Outside Xbox.

The latest Show of the Week salutes Hitman: No Subtitle, in which you're given a sandbox full of people, disguises and inadequately secured light fittings so you can go around assassinating targets in whatever way you choose. There's no wrong way to do it, unless you are Mike.

It reminds us of several of the innocuous, everyday items and activities (saunas, fireworks, glass-bottomed pools) we can no longer enjoy because Agent 47's flair for opportunistic kills have made us paranoid they are death traps. I'll never trust a bottle of hot sauce again.

Speaking of life lessons delivered in games, we've also picked some rules for better living over in Fallout 4's Commonwealth. Far from being just a retrofuturistic survivalist fantasy, Fallout 4 is full of essential tips for success in the actual real world. Consider the wisdom we've learned from Fallout 4, and watch out for spoilers.

Finally this week, if you want to put yet more things you have learned in a videogame to the test, why not try the stern but ultimately fair challenge of the Outside Xbox Mass Effect Super Genius quiz?

Who is Archangel? What is James Vega's pull-up record? What's the Krogan homeworld? What would Renegade Shepard do next? Is it punching? It's probably punching.
