Watch: Yooka-Laylee is a blast of nostalgia in Xbox One gameplay

Plus more from Outside Xbox.

Welcome to your weekly round-up of the video goings-on over at Outside Xbox, where this week we enjoyed a sandboxy nostalgia trip through Yooka-Laylee.

Yooka-Laylee is a spiritual successor to the classic N64 platformer Banjo-Kazooie by Playtonic, a studio made up of former Rare employees, and the best way to revisit 1998 that doesn't involve a flux capacitor. Watch us play the game's Toybox demo on Xbox One in this new gameplay and marvel at how little our precision platforming skills have atrophied.

Also this week, we've been playing Final Fantasy 15, out now on Xbox One and PS4. Final Fantasy 15 tells the story of Prince Noctis, who sets out into the world to reclaim his kingdom, accompanied by his three bros, Ignis, Gladiolus and Prompto.

Each one has his own unique skills, but it's Prompto's photography obsession that got us thinking about other snap-happy game characters in this week's Show of the Week.

Tuesday 13 December also saw the start of the annual Oxbox Xmas Challenge, a tradition in which we attempt randomly drawn videogame challenges to see who will be crowned winner of the festive season.

If you're new to the challenges, why not try day three's FIFA 17 giant killing challenge, in which Jane was tasked with beating a Premiership team with a League Two team. Can she lead Leyton Orient to a thrilling victory over Bournemouth? See for yourself in this FIFA 17 gameplay.
