Borderlands: The Handsome Collection is £28.58 on PS4

"Borderlands: The Handsome Collection gives a truly magnificent game and its fun if flawed sequel a new lick of paint... and gives us an excuse to play them through again.

The gorgeous HD assets and stonking amount of included DLC are well worth the price of admission, but it's a shame that The Pre-Sequel's performance issues stop this collection from being as handsome as it should be." - Borderlands: The Handsome Collection Review | Butt Slams & Butt Stallions (8/10)

I am really enjoying playing Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and Borderlands 2 the correct way around at the moment, even more so since the recent patch that has fixed many annoying issues.

Splatoon Review | Squid Free Or Dye Hard

Splatoon is fresh, messy, raucous and brilliant.

Swapping guns for paint, soldiers for squid and gritty grey authenticity for wild vibrant style, it's the best thing to happen to third-person shooting in quite some time and a game that only Nintendo could have delivered. Approaching the genre in a totally different way, it's full of radical new mechanics that are easy to learn yet change absolutely everything about how you play.

In fact, I can categorically state that Splatoon is the most fun I've had with a multiplayer shooter since Titanfall. Which is hardly surprising seeing as both games boast breathtaking new traversal methods, smooth polished mechanics and unique personality.

Unfortunately, they also share something else in common: they're a bit skinny at launch.

Move aside Minecraft, LEGO is back and it's building bridges

"Minecraft is digital Lego, we only wish we had invented it." - David Gram (Lego's marketing director, August 2014)

It's not too late though, is it? With over 560 billion physical Lego pieces created world wide and the fact that Lego in February grabbed the title of 'World's most powerful brand" from Ferrari, it's always been obvious who runs the best block party.

Until Minecraft.

Free to be Wild at last – Why WildStar’s shift to F2P is the best thing for everyone

Carbine Studios, F2P, free-to-play games, MMORPGs, NCsoft, PC games, WildStar

Well, it’s now official – WildStar will be going Free-To-Play later this year. It was only a few weeks ago that we were were speculating on such a thing, but it appears that Carbine have been listening and are ready to start making their move. Best of all, the information we have been given so far has fallen in line with expectations and avoided the dreaded “pay to win” tag.

So, in case you haven’t seen the news, here’s what is happening. This Autumn, WildStar will be going Free-to-play with all current content – which includes all 50 levels, dungeons, adventures, raids, and PvP – available to everyone who downloads the game. Meanwhile, those who subscribe as a 'Signature' player will be given bonus XP and reputation gains, additional character slots, more costume slots, and extra bank tabs. This is on top of a microtransaction store that will deal in NCoins, allowing players to buy customisation pieces and consumable convenience items similar to subscriber perks.

Admittedly there’s still plenty of work to be done before then, and it’s a shame we will have to wait until autumn for this switch to happen, but I’m just glad more people will be able to experience WildStar for themselves. It is, after all, a fun and colourful theme park MMO.

You can now get a new copy of The Order: 1886 for £19.99, but should you?

The Order: 1886 is gorgeous, short and barely interactive in parts. Astonishingly pretty yet frequently resembling a dull tech demo, it's an example of what happens when graphics are a developer's primary goal as opposed to something worth sacrificing.

That said, The Order also has an utterly superb weapon in the form of the Thermite Rifle and presents a few hours of excellent fiction, building a fantastic alternate version of London as it does so. Seeing as you can grab a new copy with change for £20, we can cautiously recommend it.

7 mins of new Batman: Arkham Knight footage

7 mins of new Batman: Arkham Knight footage

Today's new video for Batman: Arkham Knight shows seven minutes of continuous footage from a segment of the game. This gives us an excellent impression of the different play styles available in the space of a few short minutes. We're always happy to see gameplay over snappily edited snippets of cutscenes.

Over the course of seven minutes, we'll see Batman swoop over Gotham's beautifully lit Chinatown, before he dives through a building's glass skylight and straight into an indoor brawl with no loading sequence at all. This part of the story sees him rescuing a rather underdressed Poison Ivy (where are your pants, Ivy!) from Scarecrow's goons. There's nothing spoilery to look out for though.

After a quick cutscene Batman gives her a lift in the batmobile to Gotham PD, giving Warner and Rocksteady the chance to show off how you can smash through buildings for shortcuts as alternatives to the route-planning line on the HUD. There's a brief battle against the Arkham Knight's armoured tanks on the way, which is a good excuse to transform the Batmobile into Battle Mode for some quick strafe and shoot rocket-fuelled fun. Take a look for yourself below and maybe play through Asylum and City to get ready for Batman: Arkham Knight in a month's time.

Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin only £23 on Xbox One and PS4

"Dark Souls II: Scholar Of The First Sin is the definitive version of a masterpiece. Surprising for veterans yet deceptively welcoming to newcomers, this rebalanced remaster proves as deeply impressive as it is brutally compelling.

Tempting for fans, utterly essential if you've always wanted to get into the Souls series, a pleasingly complete package either way. Prepare to die, definitively." - Dark Souls II: Scholar Of The First Sin Review | School Of Hard Knocks (9/10)

Nintendo E3 2015 Predictions - hurry up: you have one year to sell us a Wii U

3DS Games, E3 2015, Nintendo, Wii U games

Microsoft and Sony are set to throw down in a climactic E3 2015 press conference conflagration, but Nintendo are doing their own thing as always. Streaming their presentation to the world before showing us several days' worth of live gameplay, they're prepared to show us exactly why the 3DS and Wii U are worth buying, rather than just tell us.

However, Nintendo also face a unique challenge in that they've effectively given the Wii U a death sentence by confirming the existence of the NX. They'll need to make the most of this one remaining year to convince more gamers to buy in before they reveal the new system... and we've got a few ideas about how they can do exactly that.

Just so you know, Jonathan bought a Wii U at launch, but Carl and Brendan are still teetering on the edge.

Nintendo E3 2015 Predictions - hurry up: you have one year to sell us a Wii U

Nintendo have their work cut out this year. With Zelda delayed and possibly jumping ship to the NX, they need to make the most of what they've got. Thankfully, seeing as they'll spend several days showing off livestreamed gameplay to the waiting world, they're set to do just that.

The 3DS will be fine, as always. New Fire Emblem, Bravely Second (if Square doesn't announce it at their own conference) and presumably new Pokemon will suit me down to the ground, and that's all without any major surprises. Even if they don't announce anything I could merrily spend the rest of the year just playing Rune Factory 4 and every other incredible time-sink on my favourite system. Come on, I make no secret of it.

On the Wii U front, however, they really need to forge ahead and make gamers an offer they can't refuse. It's already a superb console with a sensational games library, but it needs a push, especially seeing as news of the NX has spooked plenty of potential buyers.

First Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX pre-order gets a discount & exclusive physical merch

Hatsune Miku Project Mirai DX is the world-famous vocaloid's first foray onto 3DS. Boasting a large soundtrack, retooled rhythm gameplay and an adorable chibi art style, it looks to be an essential purchase for fans and a great fit for the system.

The first pre-orders have now opened, and I'm delighted to report that they're right in our wheelhouse. Rice Digital are currently selling Project Mirai DX for £5 less than the SRP along with exclusive physical merchandise: a replica of Hatsune Miku's strap that can be used as a wallet chain, lanyard, or a cosplay accessory.

Make sure to check out our Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F Vita Review and Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd Review. If you like what you see and own a Vita or PS3, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd is still available for £15.00.

The Evil Within: Limited Edition gets best deals yet on PS4/XO/PC

The Limited Edition of The Evil Within is now available for just £19.99 on PS4 and Xbox One, which is only £1 more than the standard edition. PC gamers can go even cheaper at £9.99.

The Evil Within is a return to traditional survival horror values with an unforgiving difficulty curve and a serious lack of ammo. Sounds harsh? That's the way the Resident Evil games used to be yanno (before all the zombies got motorbikes and machine guns). If Dark Souls was your introduction to tough gaming, you'll get a kick from The Evil Within. Be sure to check out the HD remake of the original Resident Evil too and the new Resident Evil Revelations 2.

Thanks to nunn.

Lego Batman 3 is a must for DC fans at £13.99 on PS4

£13.99 is hard to resist for Traveller's Tales' latest outing, especially if you're a Lego lover. This PS4 price is not only cheaper than the XO version, but also the last-gen games too. Great deal and frankly hard to believe it's still in stock from when Buzz spotted it last week.

The DC license may lack the star quality of its Marvel rival, but the refined elements of Lego Batman 3 ensure this is an improved sequel, despite the removal of an open world to explore. As ever though, this is best enjoyed in co-op if your sanity can take a bit of taunting from the camera. As you'd expect there's about 30 hours of collectible stuffed gameplay on offer.

Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, JRPGs, PS4 games

Final Fantasy X/X-2 available today for £26.59 on PS4

The PS4 version of Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster is at its cheapest price yet at £26.59. That's a great deal considering most outlets are charging around £35.

When we played the PS3 and Vita versions, we found that FFX has aged wonderfully and offers up huge depth for you to discover all over again or even for the first time if you're really lucky. It'll take you ages to finish and it turns out X-2 has aged ok too, despite being a bit unnecessary. We'd opt for the Vita version over the PS3 or PS4 because of the handheld's handy sleep function, but this PS4 preorder is bound to be the best graphics wise.

Looks like the Xbox One controller is finally getting a 3.5mm headphone port

The Xbox One controller may be a beautifully-machined and impressive bit of kit, but it also suffered from a few deeply annoying omissions. One of which was the lack of a standard headphone port, meaning that we had to pay extra for adaptors or buy all-new hardware.

From next month, however, this won't be an issue.
