After teasing the internet with images of cave paintings, Ubisoft have finally announced that Far Cry Primal is a thing, and will be with us early next year. Coming to PS4 and Xbox One on February 23rd 2016 (with the PC version arriving a month later) it appears to be a stand alone installment in the series and not an expansion like Blood Dragon was for Far Cry 3. The trailer gives us a look "the original fight for humanity’s survival with its innovative open-world sandbox gameplay, bringing together massive beasts, breathtaking environments, and unpredictable savage encounters."
It also highlights that Sabertooth Tigers will most likely be the new Honey Badgers ie. complete and utter deadly jerks.Click here to read more...

Gamers of all ages have been enjoying Traveller's Tales' Lego games for years now, but now they can finally play with real Lego bricks as a part of the game. With the runaway success of the toys-to-life trendsetter, Skylanders, it's a mystery why it's taken this long for the Lego games to jump into the genre.
Rather than focus on one IP, this new series is a mashup of multiple franchises and movie licenses. In the box, you'll find dinky NFC-chipped Lego minifigs for Batman, Gandalf and WyldStyle. Together they must take on evil forces across dimensions to save the day by beating up goons, smashing up environments and holding the Circle button to rebuild odd yet useful tools. So far, so Lego, right?
Except, in order to use the inter-dimensional gateway, you'll have to build it first. With actual Lego, with your own hands. This is your docking station where you place character and vehicle models. You can use the manual, or follow the on-screen version to put it together. It took us (a couple who hasn't touched a Lego brick in many years) about an hour to build along with the other characters and a car. Don't worry if you're rubbish at Lego or if you're buying for a younger child who isn't quite there yet, the game can't actually tell what you've built, so you can't 'get it wrong.'Click here to read more...
If you've read our review, you'll know that DmC: Definitive Edition comes highly recommended and this 'like new' deal is the best price to be found on the net. With DmC and Resident Evil, Capcom has proved that their HD remasters are amongst the best in the business.
The frame-rate is slicker than ever and the optional turbo mode makes the game 20% faster. It's a challenge for those fingers, and this release is aiming to please the hardcore fans with a huge amount of extra difficulty settings. The last-gen DLC is included too including the Virgil's Downfall expansion and a new Bloody Palace mode for him. Capcom has recently said they're planning on doing even more HD remasters, fingers crossed they include some of these games.
Thanks to BuzzDuraband.
Get the fancy Deluxe Edition of Child of Light from as little as £9.89 if you use a new account and the discount code 'WELCOME'. Even without at the code at £10.99 it's the cheapest price on the net.
Child of Light turned out to be an excellent RPG experience thanks to its old-school approach and unique UbiArt watercolour stylings. A direct download will cost you £11.99, making the £9.89 asking price for the packed Deluxe Edition very reasonable for collectors out there. You'll get a keyring, an artbook, a poster, a new outfit for Aurora and the Golem party member. Instead of a disc, you get a cross-buy code which gives you a download of both the PS3 and PS4 versions. I'd get on this now before the price goes back up and you're left with a pricey eBay alternative.
Thanks to mixmixi.
Fancy saving a few quid on Mass Effect 3: Special Edition on the Wii U? Go on, you 'll just about be able to finish it before Xenoblade Chronicles X arrives in December.
The Wii U Special Edition of the game includes lots of DLC for those of you who want to finish the trilogy on a different format to the one where you've created a save already. To make up for this, there's an 'interactive back story experience' which catches you up and allows you to make some important choices to set up the third game. Other extras include the From Ashes and Extended Cuts and a new heavy weapon. Extra multiplayer content includes the Resurgence, Rebellion and Earth packs. While we wouldn't advise replacing the first two games with the interactive comic, it's not a bad way to go if you don't have the 80 hours spare to play them.
Thanks to MrChi.
Want to know what all the fuss is about with the upcoming Elite Xbox One controller? Well, this latest trailer documents the deep customisation options to be found inside this premium-priced pad.
In addition to button remapping, extra control paddles and swappable d-pads and analogues, you'll be able to adjust the sensitivity settings. Of particular interest is being able to get the triggers to 'fire' sooner in FPS titles, meaning you can get your shot off without having to fully depress the trigger. With all sorts of different setups being needed for different genres, you'll be able to store tonnes of them and be able to switch between two on the fly via a new button. Take a look at the video below and see if the Xbox One Elite controller is that little bit more tempting.Click here to read more...

Originally intended to be a PS4 launch title, it's fair to say we may have forgotten about this one. The single-player ambitions have been scrapped in favour of an online multiplayer-only FPS title, that still looks like it could be fun.
Primal Carnage: Extinction puts the dinosaurs against the humans in online arenas. There's a trailer for you after the break, which in all honesty makes the game look like the dinos are going to struggle against the humans' firepower. Look out for the game on PSN from October 20th.Click here to read more...
Zangief is now officially coming to Street Fighter V and even has a new trailer. That's not much of a surprise, but the leaked images of a new character certainly are. While yet to be officially announced via a trailer, expect to see Laura in action very soon if these leaked images are anything to go by.
Coming from Famitsu (via Event Hubs) the new leaked screens show the new fighter giving Ryu a beat of a beating. If rumours are to be believed. Laura is a Brazilian fighter and harnesses electrical abilities similar to Blanka. Does this mean the green man beast has been replaced in Street Fighter V?
You can see some more Laura screens and the Zangief trailer below.Click here to read more...
Sometimes a game is just so bad, you have to try it. The reviews for this one are full of scorched-earth fury at such shoddiness and essentially an offensively bad game. But like Duke Nukem Forever, sometimes you have to see a wreck for yourself. If you can handle the stench, it's only £3 at this site today.
You have been warned!
This new version of Destiny is packed with value as it includes the base game, the original Season Pass expansion content (House of Wolves and The Dark Below) as well as the new expansion The Taken King. Today's sale price is comfortably cheaper than the competition too. GC are selling the PS4 version for just £33.95, whilst the next best deal is around £40.
There are some radical changes to the way the XP system works in Destiny too when The Taken King arrives. Essentially, the annoying Light system that forced you to equip certain items if you wanted the level boost is being replaced with something similar to the way you levelled up on the way to Lv.20. These are exciting times and it looks like Bungie are making a solid effort at bringing lapsed players back and giving them all the content in this edition seems like a smart move as it's only about £10-£15 more than the base game now. If you want to know more about Destiny's changes and what they mean for players, check out Carl's Destiny: The Taken King review.
£11.00 is hard to resist for Traveller's Tales' Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, especially if you're a Lego lover. It's certainly a cheaper collectible marathon than the new Lego Dimensions too. This price is for Amazon Prime members, add another £2 for delivery for non-members.
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. Check out Jon's review for more.

No, you read that headline correctly.
Earlier this year we saw Half-Life running on an Android Wear, and now a group of hackers have managed to bring the classic FPS Doom to Apple's wearable computer. The effort occurred during a Hackathon event at one of Facebook's offices, as developers Lior Tubi and Mehdi Mulani worked to get the game running on the beta version of WatchOS2. The end result isn't exactly the slickest port, as you'll see by watching the video after the jump, but it's an impressive feat none the less.Click here to read more...
Dragon Quest Heroes has taken it's sweet time to come to the west and along the way it's picked up a rather massive subtitle. Dragon Quest Heroes: The World Tree's Woe and The Blight Below. Quite the mouthful and you can add Day One Edition to that with this preorder which is the cheapest deal you'll find on PS4 today.
The extras included in this edition include the following in-game items: Slime Sword, Goomerang, Gungenir, Gooey Gloves and Squishing Rod. This is a more action-focused take on the Dragon Quest RPG series, but it's still set to come with tonnes of depth as you customise your team of warriors. Take a look at the latest overview trailer below to see the game in action.Click here to read more...
While fans of the long-running anime / manga series might get a kick out of thing one, we found it to be somewhat lacking when we reviewed it last year. Still, if you held off this long to try out 'complete' edition of Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 (with all its additional swimsuit costume glory) it's certainly worth a look for under a fiver. On top of that, you'll be saving over a tenner over the next cheapest deal as well. Thanks to Buzz for the heads-up!

It's currently one of the many key features for the Xbox One Elite Controller - which costs an eye-watering £129 - but yesterday news emerged that controller remapping won't remain an exclusive perk to the deluxe peripheral for much longer. Director of Program Management for Xbox Mike Ybarra used Twitter to confirm that all controllers for the Xbox One will soon be able to remap its controls.Click here to read more...
The price for The Old Blood seems to be hanging around the £10 on consoles, but by using the voucher code above you can get the PS4 price for a few pounds less than that. Considering how you're getting a 6-hour long campaign that is up to the same standards as The New Order, this is a fantastic offer for the stand-alone expansion that holds is own as one of the best FPS experiences of the year. Cheers to Buzz for the find!

You can get hold of the standard edition of Shadow of Mordor for just a fiver, but if you're willing to spend a few more pounds you can get hold of all of the DLC as well. The orc-hunting sandbox received high praise last year, and although I felt its open world was somewhat flat, the unique nature of the Nemesis system being backed up by an enjoyable combat system made it one of my favourite games of 2015. For under £8 you should check it out if you have yet to do so.
