Playing games with other people online is really fun (have we mentioned we quite like Overwatch?) but sometimes you simply can't beat a bit of local multiplayer.
It's been a good week for people who enjoy half-cloaks and complicated bits of machinery, all things told. Star Wars Battlefront's new DLC let's you play as cape-sporting cloud man Lando Calrissian, whereas Fallout 4's Contraptions workshop DLC lets you tinker with all sorts of, well, contraptions.
As Eurogamer commenters are very keen to remind me, I don't often look cool. As a result, I'm all the more grateful when a video game makes me feel like I am capable of doing something impressive, however temporarily.
I usually enjoy making fun of Tom's incredible passion for all things Nintendo, but gosh, this DLC looks absolutely gorgeous. It's heading to Mario Kart 8 next week (23rd April) and includes a bunch of new tracks that he seems to really like.
Oh, hello there. I hope you're having a... good Friday (haha Easter joke).
Happy Mario Kart 8 DLC day! Ian's swiftly managed to capture the all-new Rainbow Road that's included in today's track pack, and he's rustled up a quick comparison video to the SNES original. It's a pretty faithful retelling, only with jazzier music and, in this case, Captain Falcon's ship piloted by Tanooki Mario. It's almost too much.
Happy Mario Kart 8 DLC day, Nintendo fans! The game's first parcel of new tracks, karts and characters has arrived.
Today's announcement of Zelda and Animal Crossing-themed Mario Kart 8 DLC received a positive reaction from fans - unsurprising, considering the popularity of both franchises.
Mario Kart 8 players have spotted an ingenious technique to speed up race times by performing jumps after a boost - but not everyone is happy about it.
Finally! After months of waiting, this week the next generation of consoles finally gets motoring with the arrival of the most hotly anticipated game of the past two years. Watch Dogs? What's that? I am of course referring to Mario Kart 8, the triumphant return of Nintendo's signature kart racing series.
We've been playing more of Mario Kart 8's deliciously re-designed retro tracks and - guess what - they're a treat for your eyes and ears.
You don't need us to tell you how shiny Mario Kart 8 is - we've done that already - but here's a slice of footage that's in danger of making its beautiful HD world look even better.
