Watch: The least responsible uses of Watch Dogs 2's godlike hacking powers

Plus more videos from Outside Xbox.

Welcome to your weekly round-up of the video happenings over at Outside Xbox, where this week we have been playing Ubisoft's memetastic hack-'em-up Watch Dogs 2.

Watch Dogs 2's hacker hero Marcus Holloway wields mighty hacking powers that could change the world for the better, though that is not what we did with them. In this new Watch Dogs 2 gameplay we used them to mess with the citizens of San Francisco just "for the lols", as the kids say.

Whether Marcus' hacking powers are put to use remotely controlling cars, flattening people with window cleaning platforms or starting house parties where he is propositioned by a Roomba, really none of this is helping Deadsec's cause against the corrupt corporations of Silicon Valley.

Also in our "to play" pile this week was Dishonored 2, which lets you play as either deposed Empress of the Isles Emily Kaldwin, or as her father and royal protector Corvo Attano. In this Dishonored 2 gameplay, Mike and I each bring our unique approach to the game's Clockwork Mansion level.

The mansion is a fiendish maze of shifting walls and moving floors home to one Kirin Jindosh, mad scientist and captor of Anton Sokolov, our ally from the first game. Who will fare better, Mike, playing as Corvo, or myself, playing as Emily? Only one way to find out.

Finally this week, and as a total change of pace from Dishonored 2, why not watch 20 minutes of brand new WWE 2K17 Gameplay as we take some of the new wrestlers for a whirl?

We begin with the phenomenal AJ Styles, perform another classic Sasha Banks vs Bayley match, pit NXT champ Shinsuke Nakamura against fast-talking Enzo Amore, and attempt a backstage brawl that quickly becomes a dustbin duel.
