Microsoft has revealed the next clutch of free games for Xbox Live Gold members next month.

Worms Battlegrounds will be free to download on Xbox One throughout DecemberI rated this lazy clone of Worms: Clan Wars a 6/10 in our full review, but for free it's a steal and packed with multiplayer funtimes.

Xbox 360 owners, meanwhile, can download The Raven: Legacy of a Master Thief between December 1st-14th, then SSX for the remainder of the month.

Not a bad haul, and here's hoping that Worms Battlegrounds will get a major player boost. What do you make of it?

50% off both Guild Wars 2 & WildStar

50% off both Guild Wars 2 & WildStar

Not to be outdone by Blizzard's earlier zinga of a deal, NCSOFT have unleashed their own set of deals by halving the current price of their flagship MMOs. The offer sees both Guild Wars 2 and WildStar fall below the £20 mark, making it an excellent opportunity to investigate two highly enjoyable online experiences.

A few bits of housekeeping - Guild Wars 2 is subscription free but contains optional microtransactions for mainly cosmetic items, although they have recently started charging for access to previous episodes of its ongoing Living Story (which, from what I hear, is worth the investment.) Meanwhile, WildStar does have a subscription of £8.99 per month, but a purchase comes with 30 days of game time, so you'll have plenty of time to decide if life on Nexus is for you. If you need more details, before to check out our review for Guild Wars 2 and WildStar for the full lowdown.

COMPETITION | Win LittleBigPlanet 3!

LittleBigPlanet 3 is out later this week, and we've got a PS4 and PS3 copy from Sony to give away. So here's how this will go: we're going to run a competition starting today in which the winner will get to choose the version they want, after which we'll run another competition for the leftover copy.

We fired up our LBP 3 review earlier today, and here's what we said about the game:

"LittleBigPlanet 3 is an impressive game, stuffed with more imagination than ever before, and presented in a manner that makes user creation supremely accessible even as the toolset deepens. Though the Adventure mode is sadly short-lived, and the platform differences are fairly negligible, LBP 3 will surely prove to be a must-have game for PlayStation or series newcomers this winter."

You can click here to read the full review.

How To Enter

To be in with a chance of winning, all you have to do is pop a comment in the box below telling us what super cool awesome gadget you'd want to own and why.

Sackboy has a Pumpinator, Blink Balls, and jetpack shoes. But what would you want? And what the hell would you call it? Use your imaginations, come up with something interesting, fire up the Pun Gun, and you could be kicking back with Sackboy and chums for free in a few days' time.

You can also earn yourselves an extra entry by Tweeting the following: "Q-Branch has nothing on Sackboy! Win a copy of #LittleBigPlanet3 with @Dealspwn http://goo.gl/CQTBHR #winLBP3"

The competition will close on Monday 1st December at noon.

Rules

  • The maximum number of entries you can have regardless of how many times you Tweet or comment is two.
  • No account spamming please, we will be IP checking.
  • Use a legit email and make sure you're following Dealspwn on Twitter so we can contact you via email/DM if you win.
  • UK entrants only I'm afraid.

Good luck!

I love that video.

Titanfall is still probably my "pure" FPS of the year, which is to say that it would be the best had Far Cry 4 not just come along and blown me away. Titanfall is even better thanks to the free Frontier Defence pack, and the game is currently down to £7.49 on Origin.

LittleBigPlanet 3 Review | A Bit of Fry and Laurie

In some ways, LittleBigPlanet is a series that defies traditional generational thinking, that is to say it's a game series dependent not on power or graphical output, but on simple systems, deployed and interwoven in imaginative fashion. The processor that LittleBigPlanet relies on most isn't even inside whatever PlayStation you have, it's inside your head.

With that in mind, it's a little difficult to say what a new-gen LittleBigPlanet could, or even should, bring to the table, and indeed, I think it's rather important to note that this isn't really a new-gen LittleBigPlanet. Sumo Digital, having fully taken the reins of the series from Media Molecule, have crafted something accessible and deep, creating a game that ultimately does everything to illustrate that LittleBigPlanet 3 is all about us -- the players.

Sumo Digital have some pedigree with this series, having been on hand for the excellent Vita version, and they've done themselves proud here, even tweaking a few longstanding niggles. The floaty jumping feels a little tighter this time around (though it hasn't been completely overhauled due to backwards-compatibility), and environments are larger and more dense than ever before, filled with aesthetic and mechanical riches that take full advantage of the game's increased levels of spatial depth. Alongside the straightforward map that takes you from level to level in the Adventure mode, there are now hub worlds to explore in Metroidvania fashion, returning time and again to access previously unreachable areas thanks to a freshly unlocked utility or character.

LittleBigPlanet 3 Review | A Bit of Fry and Laurie

The story aspect of LittleBigPlanet 3 revolves around Hugh Laurie's maniacal Newton unleashing the power of three Titans, which then proceed to possess Newton and suck all of the creativity out of the world of Bunkum, and it's up to Sackboy, or a Little Red Riding Hood Sackgirl in the case of my adventures, to restore creativity and colour to Bunkum once more. Help is required, though, and this arrives in the form of some nifty gadgets for our stitched friend, and the resurrection of the three legendary heroes of Bunkum -- controllable super Sackfriends who each bring their own flavour to proceedings.

Pre-purchase Total War: Attila for £22.50 at Greenman Gaming, if you dare

If you haven't learned to steer clear of Creative Assembly games until all the bugs are fixed, Greenman Gaming are offering a cheap PC pre-order deal for the next Total War title. Total War: Attila will run you £22.50 with their voucher code du jour, saving you £7.49.

Use voucher code 1MZ9FW-H92JSD-2CT74F for the discount! Total War: Attila takes us back to 395 AD, the start of the Dark Ages, overhauling some of the mechanics and bringing "apocalyptic destruction" to the proceedings. Following the shockingly unpolished release of Rome II, we'd suggest that you wait and see whether Attila actually works next year, or if it ships with another hilarious cavalcade of problems. Still an early saving for die-hards, mind.

Rocksmith 2014 Edition PS4 Review | Plug In Baby

Rocksmith 2014 Edition PS4 Review | Plug In Baby

Let’s begin with a bit of housekeeping – those of you that have bought or played Rocksmith 2014 Edition on PS3 or Xbox 360 will find an almost identical experience with the current-gen version. All the new modes and functionality used to improve the experience returns, as does the ability to access any song bought in previous titles as long as you stick with the same family of consoles (eg. PS3 to PS4). So, with that in mind, you can probably skip towards the end of the review for critique specific for the current-gen version.

For the rest of us, be it those uninitiated to Rocksmith or have remained with the previous version, Rocksmith 2014 continues to provide a way for budding guitarists to learn how to play and improve their skills. Tutorials cover the basics, including setup and posture, all the way to advanced techniques such as trills, hammering, and bending. Video demonstrations and repeatable interactive sections are well presented, easy to follow, and gives opportunity for intermediate players to perfect other skills before jumping into the track list proper. For someone who was always more of a Rhythm guitarist than a Lead, it meant I could venture into new areas of play without having to start over completely.

Ultimate NES Remix Review | Zany Fun At A Silly Price

I love the NES Remix games. They plainly show that Nintendo still has creative fire and fight in them; willing to look back on a majestic legacy and gleefully mess about with it in zany new ways. NES Remix and NES Remix 2 were both stuffed with crazy minigames that blend legendary NES titles into bonkers bite-sized chunks, perfect for a few minutes or hours at a time, and my only major gripe was that its pick-up-and-play action would work better on 3DS.

You might expect Ultimate NES Remix to be the perfect package, then, but it actually puts me in a bit of a bind. It may be fantastic fun and a great fit for 3DS, but it's also far too expensive despite containing less content than the two previous games.

Be in no doubt, though, the series really does feel made for 3DS. In case you don't know, the NES Remix games lie somewhere between a greatest hits compilation and an addictive arcade time trial, splitting up legendary NES titles like Super Mario Bros, ExciteBike, Kirby's Adventure, The Legend Of Zelda and more into crazy time-based challenges. One moment you'll be trying to wheelie to the finish line in ExciteBike, the next you'll be slotting a pill into place in Doctor Mario or leaping over barrels in Donkey Kong. It's a brilliant way of bringing back some of our favourite games from yesteryear without cracking our rose-tinted spectacles.

Blizzard joins the deal-based fun with its Battle.net sale

Opportunities to get Blizzard games on the cheap as usually far and few between, but they've decided to unleash a sale of their own on Battle.net during this week of Black Friday offers. Everything from their recent back catalogue has been reduced, with the highlight being an eye-watering offer for almost all of World of Warcraft. Details are below...

So, that's everything bar the latest Warlords of Draenor expansion included in the WoW offer for £4. As for me, considering how disappointed I was with Diablo 3 initially, and how its Reaper of Souls expansion basically fixed everything, even I'm tempted by the latest offer featured here.

Zut alors, Assassin's Creed Unity only £24.95 on Xbox One today

Assassin's Creed: Unity targeted Xbox One as its lead platform, and if you're in the market for a cheap Xbox One deal, CDKeys are currently charging £24.95 for one day only. Saving you a tenner in the process and ticking another game off your Black Friday checklist.

Remember to 'like' them on Facebook for an extra 5% discount! Whether you like Assassin's Creed Unity will be another matter, though. The game's notorious technical issues may be nowhere near as pronounced on Xbox One, but Matt describes it as a "corpulent, broken mess that plays neither to its own strengths nor to its fanbase" in our 5/10 review, even if there are "flashes of promise." It sure does look pretty though.

The PC version is also on sale for £22.79 with the Facebook discount.

Get all of Telltale's The Walking Dead for under £12 from Gamersgate

The latest deals of Gamersgate's Black Friday offers has gone up, and this is by far the stand out deal. You can get hold of all parts of The Walking Dead adventure series - that means Season 1, its 400 Days DLC, and Season 2 - for under £12 overall.

That's over 20 hours of some of the finest storytelling to hit our medium in the last few years, with some heartbreaking choices to make along the way, for an absolute bargain. Please note that you will require Steam to redeem and play Season 1 and 400 Days, but Season 2 needs to be redeemed through Telltale. Before you ask, no - the fact both games are acquired through different platforms will not affect save game continuity, but I appreciate it's a faff and annoying.
