Watch: Careless caregivers who shouldn't be put in charge of kids, probably

Plus more videos from Outside Xbox.

Welcome to your weekly sampler of videos from Outside Xbox, where this week we were bemoaning the quality of childcare in video games.

Looking after kids isn't easy, but it is possible. Millions of people manage it every day. So why do these video game caregivers struggle so much? They've got the running, jumping and shooting down pat, but they can't stop a kid from running off and doing itself a mischief? Consider these designated guardians who think babysitting means sitting on a baby.

Speaking of babies, that's how you start Assassin's Creed 2: as a baby Ezio Auditore totally incapable of even basic parkour or air assassinations. Fortunately, the game skips ahead a few years at that point, as you will find out if you play Assassin's Creed: The Ezio Collection, a remastered bundle bringing to Xbox One and PS4 all the Assassin's Creed games starring Florence's favourite son.

We're on board, because we love Ezio, almost as much as these other Ezio enthusiasts in this week's Show of the Week.

Finally this week, we club together for Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's Zombies in Spaceland, becoming 80s archetypes AJ, Sally and Andre at the ultra neon Spaceland Theme Park.

See us build friendly robot N31L, visit the arcade-based afterlife and, later, get lasered to death on a light-up dance floor in this gameplay from Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare's Zombies mode.

That's it from us this week, see you back here in a week for further videos, or why not take a trip to for more right now?
