A fantastic start for what we hope will become a fresh Tolkien franchise. There are some solid (if not borrowed) foundations and the Nemesis surpasses our expectations by providing a fresh experience to enemy design. Improvements next time should see a little more variety added to the combat brawls, but you’re going to love taking advantage of an enemy’s weaknesses from afar with the rich range of underhanded subterfuge tactics. Well played, Monolith. - Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor Review | Boromir Was Wrong
The value in this Game of the Year Edition of Shadow of Mordor is unquestionably insane. It currently sits on the Steam Store at £14.99.
The full list of content included in the GOTY Edition are:
We appreciate this isn't the New Nintendo 3DS but we feel the need to highlight all the deals we see, and at only £109 a Nintendo 3DS XL with Super Mario 3D Land is a deal. Regardless of its lack of 3D and ability to play Xenoblade Chronicles.
You can opt to collect the item from your local store or alternatively choose to add an additional £3.95 to have it delivered. Just remember, its all about those Clubcard Points.
Race The Sun is a welcome fresh take on the endless runner genre, but unfortunately it doesn't really do enough to justify its $10 price tag, particularly when there's a perfectly good version of the game (not to mention dozens of robust competitors) already available for free. Sure, it's elegant and it looks nice but it's also a relatively simplistic score attack game that gets old pretty quickly. - Race The Sun Review | Polygonic Spree
Owners of a Playstation 4 may well be familiar with Race the Sun as it was a part of Sony's Instant Game Collection back in May.
Its time for this week's Humble Bundle with the focus on games from Japan. (Jon will love this bundle!)

This is the Metro experience how it was meant to be. With 2033 brought up to parity with its successor in terms of visual aspects and a smoother stealth experience, 2033 and Last Light come together to form a glorious whole that's more atmospheric than ever, giving a second chance to one of the most striking and original shooters out there. Essential stuff, especially on console, for fans and newcomers alike. - Metro Redux Review | Nuclear Family

We reported back in June rumours of a possible appearance for ZombiU on Xbox One, PS4 and PC which were spotted at the time on the Australian ratings board. The good news is, the rumours were true. Zombi (without the U, obviously) is coming to all three platforms on August 18th.Click here to read more...
In an age of Playstation 4s and Xbox Ones its sometimes hard to forget about the pocket full of 10 pence pieces, candy floss joysticks and video shops. Its safe to say that the arcade scene just isn't what it was anymore. In comparison to the days I remember, the arcade scene no longer exists. It's not just the dedicated arcade areas either, gone are the table top Space Invader machines you could often find in pubs. I don't even recall visiting a pizza shop over the past few years that hasn't proudly sported Street Fighter II and I definitely can't remember the last time I was at a fairground that had even a half acceptable group of coin-op machines together for some frantic joystick wiggling entertainment.
It wasn't a brief phase either. The arcade machine first made an appearance in its most dominant form back in 1972 with the release of the first commercially successful arcade machine, Pong. With the release of Pong on November 27 of that year, Atari had single handedly helped cement the future success of both Pong and arcade machines with various companies copying the gameplay style of Atari's Pong creating competition and an increase in the production of the arcade machine.Click here to read more...
There isn't a month that goes by where I don't hear negativity towards Sony and their additions to the Playstation Plus service for the Instant Game Collection. It's understandable to a degree, I mean there is nothing worse than Sony offering games you'd already purchased. It's frustrating.
A new feature heading our way could make us the makers of our own IGC destiny. Vote to Play will allow Playstation owners the option each month of voting for one of three games to be added to their Instant Game Collection.Click here to read more...
If you've waited this long for a PS4, you might as well pick up one in style with this Limited Edition Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain bundle for just £280.52. That's a huge saving. We've seen a few go for around £330, but most are selling for £349 or more.
This very limited release has a uniquely coloured PS4 and an exclusive DualShock 4 in a grey colour with a Diamond Dogs logo. Naturally, you're getting a copy of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain too. This edition will be released September 1st.

We reported last week the summer release for the free of charge Resident Evil 2: Reborn HD remake that is currently in the pipeline from Italian indie outfit Invader Games. The project has been developed using the Unreal 4 engine and includes improved 3D modelling, lighting, particle effects, tuned-up gameplay plus new textures and animations.
The game has actually been in development for just over two years with a playable alpha version for the PC releasing back in October of 2014 when the game was originally using the Unity Engine.
We love Resident Evil here at Dealspwn (not you, Resident Evil 6) and genuinely can't wait for the release of Resident Evil 2: Reborn HD. Not just because it's free, there's also reasoning of nostalgia from our happy memories of Resident Evil 2 back in 1998.Click here to read more...
PlayStation TV is now available for £35.99 and this version includes Worms Revolution Extreme, Velocity Ultra and OlliOlli.
PlayStation TV is a neat device that let's you play a selection of Vita games on your TV using a regular sized DualShock controller. What we find especially useful though is the PS4 streaming that is handy for playing your PS4 on a different TV in the house. So perhaps moving your PS4 up and downstairs is set to become a thing of the past? £35.99 sounds cheaper than buying a new PS4 when you inevitably fumble it too. Take a look at Matt's PlayStation TV review.

Not as addictive as it probably intended to be, the lack of longevity means it’s a game that is best approached with an arcade mentality for maximum enjoyment. That said, Retro City Rampage is capable of providing bursts of nostalgia-fuelled moments of pixelated mayhem, something Brian Brovinciano should be proud of. - Retro City Rampage Review | Pixelated Carnage
I'm becoming more and more attracted to GoG's DRM free world, more so with the amazing prices they have week in and week out. If you still need to cling on to some form of DRM then it may well be worth you checking out the GoG Galaxy client. It's still DRM free, it's just organised better.
Chargers are an absolute nightmare in our household, there is constantly somebody arguing over one, I think they are second only to the remote control. If you are looking to replace or even purchase a backup charger for your Nintendo 3DS then £1.50 is a little bit of a no brainer really, isn't it?
The price is based on the assumption that you don't mind clicking and collecting it from your local store, otherwise you will need to throw an additional £3.00 on that price tag.

Consider Mortal Kombat X your first essential fighting game of the new generation of consoles. It's best enjoyed with local friends thanks to the easily memorised combos and buckets of gory X-Ray moves and finishers. The story and lengthy Tower options will pad out the single-player experience, but the online match ups are reserved for the more hardcore player. - Mortal Kombat X Review | Gore galore
It's a great price for Mortal Kombat X on the Playstation 4 and I think it's possibly the cheapest we have seen yet. This daily deal will run, as always with The Game Collection until midnight tonight.
It's that time of the month. August's Instant Game Collection has been announced, and it's a good one.
Remember, if you're currently in need of a renewal for your Playstation Plus or are just looking to bulk up that PSN wallet then make sure to check out our PlayStation + and PSN Gift Cards cheap deals guide

Most of the details are being held back for a proper reveal at Gamescom next week., but the best news so far is that The Following will be made available to Season Pass holders at no extra cost. A price for non-pass holders has yet to be announced.Click here to read more...
The official Sony wireless headset for use with the PS4, PS3 and Vita is available for £54.97 today,saving you £5 on the next best deal.
If the free basic headset bundled with the PS4 just doesn't cut it for you, you might want to take a look at Sony's official full-sized headset. These look like a decent alternative to buying a fancy sound system as they feature virtual 7.1 surround sound which should bring out the best in a game's audio design - imagine playing Battlefield with that! There's a internal mic for online chat and the headset has a and folding design, making them handy for travel if using with the Vita too.
Thanks to CarlosN7.
We've been wondering when Broken Sword 5: The Serpent's Curse would be making it's way to PS4 and Xbox One and now we know the official date. We've even discovered a brand new trailer and handily, the new price.

There will be digital and physical releases, with the latter including a printed comic book prelude. £19.99 is only the RRP though and we've already found a better deal on both formats, as you can see below:Click here to read more...
