The Vaults in the Fallout series have a sinister secondary purpose: they're social experiments on a captive population. Here are the six most twisted Vaults from the Fallout games. Subscribe! The Vaults in the Fallout series are secretly experiments sponsored by the government and Vault-Tec to see how people react to different situations in a controlled environment. If they were meant to prove that doing crazy experiments on people makes them crazy, then congratulations all round. Especially in the case of these six Vaults of dubious scientific merit. Take Vault 11 as an example. After the door closed, the inhabitants were told by their overseer that they would have to sacrifice one of their fellow Vault dwellers each year or everyone would die. Thanks for that, overseer! Guess who was the first sacrifice? After this, whoever held the position of overseer was always the one chosen for sacrifice, so elections for overseer became ruthless, cutthroat affairs which eventually lead to blackmail, murder and finally civil war that killed all but five inhabitants of the Vault. It also turns out the Vault 11 experiment was actually to test morality against self-preservation. All the Vault dwellers needed to do was to refuse to sacrifice anyone and the whole thing would be over. Dick move, Vault-Tec. Still, at least those five people survived unharmed and uncrazy, right? Actually, four of them shot themselves out of shame. Good work, everyone. --- Outside Xbox brings you daily videos about Xbox 360 games and Xbox One games.

It's tough living in a wasteland short on hope and long on angry supermutants. For some survivors, starting a cult is just their way of coping with the chaos, so it's not for us to judge. Except we’re going to do that right now. Subscribe! After the apocalypse, some find meaning in life through religion, and then there's the Church of the Children of Atom, who worship the giant unexploded nuclear bomb in the middle of Megaton. Or take The Kings: a gang of guys in New Vegas's Freeside who are really, really into Elvis Presley, except they don't know who Elvis actually was. They moved into an abandoned school for Elvis impersonators in Freeside, took one look at the place and decided anyone that people revered this much had to be a god. Freeside is also where you will find one of the weirdest cults in Fallout New Vegas, Maud's Muggers: a marauding band of old ladies in matching pink dresses who attack you with rolling pins and flickknives. At least the Treeminders are peaceful. Under the leadership of Treefather Birch, these folks are dealing with the apocalypse the best way they know how: gluing twigs to themselves, worshipping a talking tree and being leafy pacifists. Until you incinerate their talking god tree, obviously. Then there's the White Glove Society of the Ultra-Luxe Casino. You don't want to know what those guys are into, other than fancy eveningwear and elitism. It's not like things are any better below the wasteland.

If you're a scientist or an inventor in a videogame, watch your back. The chances are good you will die at the hands of your creation, or at the giant rusty drill arm of your creation. Why did you even give it one of those? Consider these seven geniuses killed by their best work. (Be careful of spoilers in the video below, although none are for games newer than 2013.) Sometimes it's an unlucky break for a well-meaning genius, sometimes it's a lethal dose of comeuppance for a hubristic boffin, but either way: videogames love these ironic twists of fate. Your father in Fallout 3 only wanted to give clean, unirradiated water to everyone in the Capital Wasteland, then died of radiation poisoning when he heroically sabotaged his own water-purifying machine. The immediate symptoms of acute radiation sickness include vomiting and diarrhoea, which are not shown, and seizures, which are: Dr James Wanderer expires juddering face down on the floor of the Jefferson Memorial. BioShock's Dr Suchong, on the other hand, created a clanking great monster, taught it to protect little girls, then smacked a little girl in front of it. The drill arm on a Big Daddy was originally intended for doing deep-sea excavations, but works even better for boring holes through the solar plexus of a fleshy scientist. Also featured: BioShock Infinite's geniune genius Rosalind Lutece, who made a city float, and Dead Rising 3's dubious 'genius' Dylan Fuentes, who made a phallic flamethrower. It was only a matter of time before Fuentes came a cropper, but Lutece died (at least technically) on account of sabotage. F.E.A.R's science bigwig Harlan Wade, on the other hand, was a man who deserved to be melted by a telepath and then was melted by a telepath. --- Outside Xbox brings you daily videos about Xbox 360 games and Xbox One games.

Videogames are a multibillion dollar business these days and wherever that kind of money is sloshing around, lawsuits are sure to follow. But this isn't a new thing; here are eight allegedly ridiculous lawsuits that allegedly didn't go according to plan. Allegedly (nailed it). While Sega is being sued because Aliens: Colonial Marines was so awful, Oculus is being sued because John Carmack is so clever, and Rockstar is being sued because you can't create a parody of a Hollywood starlet without it being compared to Lindsay Lohan, even by Lohan herself, we peer into videogame legal history for more curious courtroom battles. Consider Manuel Noriega versus Black Ops 2, for instance, or the suit brought by Michael 'Shagg' Washington against GTA: San Andreas, or even ostensibly similar works Dawn of the Dead and Dead Rising squaring off in court.

Fallout 4 appears to be less out-and-out weird than its predecessors, but though there's no Wild Wasteland a la Fallout: New Vegas, there is still unmarked weirdness for you to stumble upon in the Commonwealth. Spoilers ahead! Discover them and subscribe for more Fallout 4: These peculiar places include the General Atomics Galleria, originally intended to showcase the products of the General Atomics company by demonstrating what a shopping district staffed by their line of robots would be like. What it would be like is 'extremely murdery', it turns out. There's also Covenant, a suspiciously intact-looking settlement that won't let you in until you do a psychological test to prove you aren't a robot. The test by the way is stolen wholesale from Vault-Tec's Generalized Occupational Aptitude Test from Fallout 3. At least be original with your synth-racism, guys. And don't be forgetting Pickman's Gallery, a charming exhibition of psychotic blood paintings, or the school where they fed pink food paste to everyone.

Shot your commanding officer? Late for a hostage rescue? Sniped a wild dog? These seven games aren't going to humour you any more. Come on, get in character! Subscribe for more from Outside Xbox: The point of a game is that you're in control and with that interactivity, comes the freedom to muck around, kill the wrong things and generally not take it seriously. Most of the time you get away with it. But not in Halo, where if you make Master Chief run back onto the bridge of the Pillar of Autumn and execute Captain Keyes, a squad of invincible marines spawns in and kills you to bits. Or in Deus Ex: Human Revolution, where if you don't hurry along to a hostage rescue like your boss tells you, the hostages die and it's all your fault for being late, having wasted time breaking into offices and turning on all the bathroom taps. Or in Assassin's Creed 3, in which you had better not go on an hilarious animal killing spree unless you're going to skin every last animal corpse, because that's super ultra non-canon for Connor Kenway and his respect for nature.

The secret Cloud City level in Jedi Knight: Mysteries of the Sith, Aztec in GoldenEye, and the gigantic Area 51 hidden away in Duke Nukem 3D. Remind yourself of these and further impressive bonus levels for which you’d probably get charged real money if they were made these days and also subscribe: Star Wars: Jed Knight expansion Mysteries of the Sith had a mystery of its own: a secret additional level based on one of the most beloved Star Wars settings from the most beloved Star Wars film, that is, Cloud City from Empire Strikes Back. To access the Bespin level you had to fiddle around with the files on your PC. This added the secret option to the episode list and made you feel like a cool hacker, because this was the 90s and hackers were cool. The hidden Bespin level, in which you played as Luke Skywalker, featured a lightsaber duel in the carbonite chamber, Boba Fett going out like a total punk, and Luke hurling himself down a big exhaust pipe to make a daring escape on the Millennium Falcon.

Making a videogame is really difficult, so it's no surprise some developers need a bit more recognition for all their hard work than a couple of BAFTAs. That's why some developers put themselves in their own games for players to find. Here are seven times game creators turned up in their own games, as themselves, fourth wall be damned. Subscribe! Just try and stop Hideo Kojima putting himself in his games. He's turned up in Peace Walker as a recruitable soldier, in Metal Gear Solid 4 standing in a corner, and Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes as a haunted painting. His most in-your-face cameo to date is the one in Metal Gear Solid 5: Ground Zeroes, where he shows up as an intel team agent who manages to get himself captured, necessitating a rescue from Snake. That's still less jarring than David Cage's appearance in his game Fahrenheit, in which he pops up before the game begins in a rather fetching woolly jumper to explain in painstaking detail how to understand and play his game. We'd rather he explained what the hell was going on in that dead person sex scene, but there you go. --- Outside Xbox brings you daily videos about Xbox 360 games and Xbox One games.

Most places of work have a few minor hazards that would be frowned on by some overzealous safety inspector, who would, I bet, even take issue with the annual Outside Xbox Bring Your Alligator to Work Day (thanks, nanny state). It's still safer here than these videogame workplaces, though. Get ready with the zero for the 'days since last accident' sign if you're unlucky enough to work in any of the following places. Take the Normandy SR-2. After pro-human militia Cerberus blew its budget resurrecting Commander Shepard in time for Mass Effect 2, it didn't have the cash for the optional shielding upgrade on the new Normandy. As a result, the thrumming drive core at the heart of the ship is a time bomb, primed to explode when the Normandy bumps into some space junk, incinerating whichever beloved crew member is standing nearby. We bet they scrimped on airbags too. The retro Aperture Science Enrichment Center, meanwhile, flouts safe science with pride, having been built in a simpler and saner age before asbestos office furniture went out of fashion. But even Aperture's facility scores higher for employee safety than Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, the restaurant in Five Nights at Freddy's, whose animatronic critters regularly try to stuff the night watchman into a lethally uncomfortable robotic shell. Did no-one do a risk assessment? It's enough to make us grateful for the comparative haven of the Outside Xbox kitchen, where the most we have to worry about is the doorless microwave and the jar of anthrax we keep next to the sugar.

9 Little Gameplay Changes We Love in Fallout 4: There are loads of little changes making a big difference in Fallout 4. Consider our favourites in this Fallout 4 gameplay (we'll avoid story spoilers in the video ahead, don’t worry). Subscribe for more Fallout 4! Navigation is easier now. Fallout games have always displayed a marker on your HUD to show you which direction your quest objective is in. That’s fine, until you come across, say, a mountain. If you’re anything like me, you’ll try going straight over, only to get stuck on a rock, before eventually freeing yourself by falling to your death. The new perk called V.A.N.S., short for Vault-Tec Assisted Navigational System, fixes all that by displaying a glowing green trail every time you pop into V.A.T.S., which shows you the quickest way to your objective so you should never get lost again. Fallout 4 also introduces base building and some serious crafting, and soon you'll wonder how Fallout ever went without it, because the new systems are a perfect fit for the scavenging, hoarding existence you're eking out in the wasteland here. Base building is a big deal, and plenty of players will disappear straight into it, never to be seen again, sorry everyone who needs me to do quests for them. But on a minor note, we love in particular how it makes sense of all the random junk we used to obsessively collect in Fallout for no very good reason. All those ashtrays and clipboards you couldn't leave behind are now useful for their raw materials, which are repurposed to make the mods on your guns and structures in your base. --- Outside Xbox brings you daily videos about Xbox 360 games and Xbox One games.

The Riddler is the single least effective villain Batman faces across all four Arkham games, for the following reasons. Beware of spoilers ahead for Arkham Knight and subscribe to Outside Xbox for more Batman! When a villain calls himself The Riddler, the least you expect is some quality riddles, but it's not clear Riddler even knows what a riddle is. See the video above for sample non-riddles. By the time we get to Arkham Knight, Riddler has given up altogether on challenging Batman with puzzles, electing instead to build a bunch of ludicrously elaborate racetracks that only someone with some kind of rocket-powered car would be able to complete. That's not a riddle either, Eddie. Then he managers to create advanced Batman-proof robots to bring down the Bat, but fails to foresee a scenario where someone other than Batman fights his Batman-proof Riddler-bots. Catwoman, for instance. He also created a Catwoman-proof robot, which he only uses when Batman is around. Why not just make one robot, that is impervious to both Batman and Catwoman, then let it beat them to death in a locked room? I guess that's why I'm not a Riddle-themed supervillain. That and I know how riddles work. --- Outside Xbox brings you daily videos about Xbox 360 games and Xbox One games.

Discover Injustice 2's most brutal super moves in new Injustice 2 gameplay. It looks like fun, sure, but before you consider fighting a superhero figting yourself, bear in mind you will almost certainly be horribly killed. Or at least you will while they’re all using super moves like these. Subscribe! Batman, as we all know, has a strict no-killing rule, because if he were to kill people, he’d be no better than the criminals he’s trying to bring to justice. Which makes it a bit odd that his super move in Injustice 2 involves obliterating his opponents with heavy artillery fire from the Batwing. Still more forgiving than Supergirl’s super move, which sees her fly her opponent around the sun, before using her laser eyes to smash them back down to earth, along with several thousand tons of space rocks.

If you're in good health, your chances of suddenly dropping dead are low.

It's hard work designing fighting game characters. You have to decide on their fighting style and ridiculous haircut, for starters, and then how little clothing you can get away with putting on them. It's much easier to model your character on a real-life celebrity - such as with Fei Long, Forest and Marshal Law and Liu Kang, all of whom were based on martial arts legend Bruce Lee. Ponder these seven fighters who look mighty familiar. The way Mortal Kombat's Johnny Cage closely resembles Bloodsport-era Jean Claude Van Damme is a special case. Mortal Kombat was originally meant to be a game about Jean Claude Van Damme, starring a digitised version of the Timecop himself. When Midway Games weren't able to secure the license for Van Damme, they took their prototype and called the main character in it Johnny Cage. They kept the tight shorts, JCVD-style haircut and signature move of doing the splits and punching people in the crotch, thank goodness. --- Outside Xbox brings you daily videos about Xbox 360 games and Xbox One games.

Although it is demonstrably cool to fight trained mercenaries and angry bears, we can't help but remember fondly the days when Lara faced off with less explicable enemies. Her evil self, for instance, which was her with more eyeliner, or a teenage boy on a skateboard. Consider how admirably nutty Tomb Raiders used to be in the video above, and share your favourite foes in the comments, if you would. --- Outside Xbox brings you daily videos about Xbox 360 games and Xbox One games.

6 Fallout Quests That Were Weird Even for Fallout (That Fallout 4 Will Need to Top): The main quests in Fallout 3 and Fallout New Vegas are full of important stuff, but wander off the beaten track and you find countless weirdos who want you to do their weirdo dirty work. Fallout 4 has a big job ahead of it to outweird these strangest side quests. Subscribe for more Fallout 4! The Wang Dang Atomic Tango quest is given to you by James Garrett, one of the twins who runs the Atomic Wrangler casino in Freeside. It seems he’s got some clients with unusual tastes, so it’s up to you to recruit some new prostitutes for the Wrangler. You need a ghoul cowboy, a smooth talker who can provide the ‘boyfriend experience’ that the irradiated lonely hearts of New Vegas crave, and most tricky of all, a sex robot. Still, it’s nothing we can’t handle, by breaking into an abandoned robotics factory, and reprogramming a Protectron into a, frankly terrifying sexbot called a Fully Integrated Security Technotronic Officer or, yikes, “Fisto” for short. Less harrowing but no less strange is the quest The Superhuman Gambit from Fallout 3. Wander into the town of Canterbury Commons in the Capital Wasteland for the first time and you’ll walk right into the middle of a confrontation between The Mechanist and The AntAgonizer, respectively the lamest superhero and lamest supervillain of all time. Everyone in town is sick to death of them having their stupid ant versus robot laser battles all over their town, so the quest asks you to get rid of one or both of them. This being Fallout, there are a bunch of ways to make this happen, including getting them to kill each other, murdering them with lasers, or convincing them that this whole thing is a big dumb waste of everyone’s time. This works much better in Fallout than it does in real life, turns out. --- Outside Xbox brings you daily videos about Xbox 360 games and Xbox One games.

Deus Ex Mankind Divided trailer, announcing the Deus Ex Human Revolution sequel.

Sometimes when playing a videogame, you’ll notice clues that suggest they share a universe with another series, like when Zangief from Street Fighter piledrives Kazuya from Tekken in Street Fighter X Tekken. Subtle, but it’s definitely there. Amazingly, sometimes these connections are even more well hidden than this. See for yourself in these following examples.

Games usually take hours to complete, but ain't nobody got time for that. In these secret endings, you find a surprise shortcut to the end credits, finishing your game in just a fraction of the usual time by taking the sneaky path of least resistance. Watch on for the most entertaining secret shortcut endings in videogames. Minor, non-canonical spoilers ahead. The secret endings include Far Cry 4's morally dubious shortcut to a shooting vacation with Pagan Min, Batman: Arkham City's alternate downer ending as Catwoman, and the Metal Saga ending that finishes your game within moments of starting it.

We recently recalled the times we made a game much harder for ourselves by accident. The YouTube comments on that video revealed plenty more times you suffered a similar fate, such as by wearing Assassin Creed 2's Auditore Cape, achieving a high chaos level in Dishonored, or accepting a creepy doll in Silent Hill 4.

Videogames are supposed to challenge you, not screw you over for fun. Recently we recalled the times we could swear a game stacked the odds against us and in the comments of that video many of you submitted your own similarly suspect scenarios. Here they are for your viewing pleasure. Subscribe for more! Take the gym leaders in Pokemon games. Sure, you expect gym leaders to be good at Pokemon battles, but these poke-pros are suspiciously good, if you get my meaning. Yes, it seems that no matter what your strategy is going in, it’s always countered by the gym leader’s clever counter strategy of absolutely nailing you with critical hits, and then using a full restore just as it looks like you might actually be in with a fighting chance of winning. At least Left 4 Dead is upfront about it, on account of how the game has a so-called AI director whose sole responsibility is to dynamically choreograph your co-op zombie apocalypse experience, or in layman’s terms: screw with you. To use one particular example, in the Parish level in Left 4 Dead 2, much of the cemetery layout can be adjusted on the fly, and if you and your three survivor mates have been having a good day, the AI director is empowered to make you take the long way through the tombstones. This means it’ll take longer to get through the cemetery, and we all know the longer you spend outside of a nice cosy safe room, the greater the odds you’ll be swarmed by a zombified cemetery tour group. --- Outside Xbox brings you daily videos about videogames, especially Xbox One games and Xbox 360 games.

There’s something about rising to the top of a military organisation in videogames that brings out the worst in people. These military commanders can’t go five minutes without holding the world to ransom with a death ray or trying to blow up a major population centre for ill-defined reasons. They would be much better off outside the military, where they can minimise their tyrannical impulses. Take these six candidates in need of a serious career change (spoilers ahead for Dead Rising 3, Spec Ops: The Line, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Bioshock Infinite and Fallout: New Vegas): General Serrano - Bulletstorm General Shepherd - Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Captain Cornelius Slate - Bioshock Infinite Legate Lanius - Fallout: New Vegas General Hemlock - Dead Rising 3 --- Outside Xbox brings you daily videos about Xbox 360 games and Xbox One games.

Games can take us to so many places, but amidst these diverse locations there are a handful of ‘classics’ in which we wind up over and over. The end result is they’re more familiar than your childhood home, but without all the dead pets in the garden. Point your face at sewer levels, factory levels, nightclub levels and lava levels galore, then subscribe for a week like this every Thursday. The sewer level is so commonplace as to be a veritable tradition; we find ourselves splashing into a sewer with more regularity than the stuff which makes sewers so unpleasant in the first place, in games as disparate as Wolfenstein 2, Deadpool, Resident Evil 4, Dead Island and Gears of War, to name but a few. You don’t have to be a wastewater engineer to estimate how much ick is involved in sloshing around in the figurative and also kind of literal bowels of a city, or how many showers you are going to need after all your sewer spelunking.

Your typical videogame action hero is fitter and stronger than we'll ever be, and typically able to do whole bunch of things that are physically implausible, if not straight-up biomechanically impossible. Ponder with us now, these incredible physical feats that videogame heroes are pulling off every day like it's nothing and subscribe for a list like this weekly: Take the potentially infinite jogging of Nathan Drake, the way Lara Croft can fall into a body of water from any height without injury, or the way Ezio Auditore can hang by his fingertips, drop several storeys, then catch another ledge by just those same muscular fingertips. That's to say nothing of the way a Call of Duty hero can heal bullet wounds by crouching for a few moments behind cover, or how Jason Brody of Far Cry 3 fame cannot be damaged in battle except through his vulnerable forearms, much like Achilles and his one super weaksauce heel.

We've all had to overcome challenges in games, be they tough bosses or tricky puzzles, but the hardest hurdles are the moments where you have to do something you hate in order to proceed.

They say it's the thought that counts, but they are wrong idiots. There are good gifts and there are rubbish gifts which make your life as the recipient measurably worse, especially in videogames. Consider these seven horrible presents you can't stick on eBay or regift, except to your enemies, and even then you'll look like a cheapskate. Pity the birthday boy or girl in Fallout 3 who, to celebrate ten years of eking out a childhood in a bomb shelter, receives a poem predicting his or her miserable life and eventual death. It's nearly as bad for Bully's Jimmy Hopkins, who receives a Christmas jumper so ugly it generates a kind of humiliation field around the wearer.

We recently recalled the achievements that took serious planning and asked if you had your own tales of cheevos that were organisational nightmares. The answer was yes, you did. For which, see these achievements submitted for your consideration in the comments of that earlier video. Subscribe to Outside Xbox for daily videos, why not: Previously on Outside Xbox: 7 Achievements That Took Some Serious Planning Take, for example, the Go Outside achievement from The Stanley Parable, a game so self-aware we're surprised it hasn't developed sentience and turned on its creators. This achievement asks you to not play the Stanley Parable for five years, which, since The Stanley Parable came out in 2013, means that anyone with their eye on this Steam achievement must still be waiting, patiently not playing their game until some point in 2018 at the earliest. You can do it, folks! We believe in you. Just hang on in there for one more year.

Jogging is how I spend 900 percent of every videogame ever. So when a vehicle comes along I jump at the chance to cut down on tedious hiking, except when it becomes clear I was better off on foot. Consider these vehicles so rubbish I'd rather walk and also subscribe: No disrespect to Leonardo da Vinci, the guy was great at painting enigmatic smiles, but not everything he touched turned to Mona Lisas. For example, the tank he designed in Assassin's Creed Brotherhood. This 16th Century battle Roomba requires three people to operate and sort of shuffles around the battlefield like a renaissance precursor to Arkham Knight's Batmobile. It wouldn't be so bad, but to get 100 percent sync in the tank mission in the video above you need to not get hit once, and this thing has all the evasive capabilities of mid-sized Starbucks. The latter-day equivalent is Deadly's Premonition's police car. After kooky protagonist York wrecks his own car on the drive into town at the start of Deadly Premonition, he gets a standard issue police car to trundle around in. Only I hope you don't need to be anywhere in a hurry, because the initial top speed of your new wheels is a sluggish 55 miles an hour. At the same time, it handles like a refrigerator in a broken shopping trolley. If someone offers you a choice between this cruiser and a sturdy pair of hiking boots, take the boots and use them to kick the car to pieces. --- Outside Xbox brings you daily videos about Xbox 360 games and Xbox One games.

When we play horror games, we know what we signed up for. The rest of the time, we can be caught with our guard down by genre-defying scares, as in these games so unexpectedly terrifying we can never trust again so thanks for that, games. Subscribe? Beware spoilers from BioShock Infinite, Metal Gear Solid, Ecco the Dolphin and Halo 1, if that's somehow still on your unfinished pile of shame. From creepy Watson in Sherlock Holmes: Nemesis to BioShock's eyeless Boys of Silence, to just about every goddamn thing in The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, the unexpectedness of scary goings-on in ostensibly non-horror games makes them that much more psychically scarring. Remember the off-brand Xenomorph at the end of Ecco the Dolphin? Or the time Halo went all found footage horror the first time you met the Flood? If not, allow us to dredge up those repressed memories in the video above. You're welcome. - -- Outside Xbox brings you daily videos about Xbox 360 games and Xbox One games.
