I loved Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I mean, boss battles and that rubbish ending aside, it was a damn fine game that really delivered in terms of giving players options. We're big on that sort of thing here.
The Director's Cut reworks the offending parts of the original game to make for a somewhat smoother experience, integrating the Missing Link DLC, freeing up certain augmentations, and adding in 8 hours of developer commentary and a 45-minute documentary. Thanks mugglesquop!
The Indie Royale Debut 22 Bundle includes seven PC games for a very low fluctuating minimum price (approximately £1 at the time of writing - note that a coding error is making the price appear in Dollars).
The seven games include East Tower, Star-Twine, Cruel Arena, Bit Shifter, Bomb The Monsters, Star Nomad and Make It Indie! I'd recommend Star Nomad as the highlight of the bunch. As you might be aware, they're all Steam Greenlight candidates, so you'll get a choice of options including direct PC downloads, Desura and even a few Mac-compatible titles as opposed to Steam codes. Make sure to follow our PC games deals for more competitive bundles!
LittleBigPlanet 3 might be lacking a bit in terms of developer-created levels, but the creation suite is the best it's ever been, with loads more tools and tutorials, making it both the deepest and yet most accessible LittleBigPlanet game to date. The Game Collection's £34.95 deal is a good price, but remember you can get LBP 3 for around £24 if you set up a US PSN account. Click here for more details on that.
Do you like weather? I mean , do you really like weather? Do you dream about pixel perfect reproduction of individual raindrops when it comes to your games? Do gorgeous sheets of precipitation get you all kinds of wet? Does the Pope do his business in tree-stuffed areas?
I got lost.
Driveclub is for you! It's a pretty average driving game, but boy is it pretty thanks to the recent update. Cheers mreriksen!
Don't worry, this isn't a deal for those life-simulator titles from Maxis and EA, hell no. This bundle is all about hardcore rugged simulation titles like Towtruck Simulator 2015 and Warehouse and Logistics Simulator! You can keep your hot-tubs and Simoleons. This bundle is all about Woodcutter Simulator 2013, baby.

Lots of people are talking about Hatred right now, either decrying its deliberately gratuitous and provocative violence or championing it as a title to rally around in the name of free expression. Valve kicked it off Steam, and then Gabe Newell personally apologised and reinstated it, presumably after realising that they'd be able to make sick bank off of it.
Anyway, we'll deal with Hatred when we can actually play the damn thing and see if it's anything more than a poor man's Postal. In the meantime, however, instead of choking out some faux-outrage about a game we're yet to play, here are ten conversely joyous and uplifting games that you can absolutely play right now and remind yourself that gaming can be positive and life-affirming too.
Honourable Mentions: ToeJam and Earl, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, Super Mario Sunshine, Harvest Moon, Elite: Dangerous
The entire point of OutRun was to leap into a Ferrari and soak up the sun, sea, and sights of the pixellated Californian coastline. It was basically a roadtrip sim, an encapsulation of a West Coast ideal, just blowing the day off and getting away. Pure escapism. OutRun's carefree spirit is what fuels the likes of Burnout Paradise and Forza Horizon 2 -- just leaping in a car and getting away from it all. What could better than that?Click here to read more...
Not only is there a ridiculous saving of over £40 compared to the next best offers elsewhere, it actually works out cheaper than a standard copy at the time of writing. The SDWW Edition comes with 12 inch replica of the in-game Dub Step gun, a pocket-sized Dubstep Doomsday Button, and an 8 inch Johnny Gat Memorial Statue. Perfect for fans of the Saints Row series, or for those who want to destroy the world with Dubstep. Thanks to Lomi @ HUKD!

We might have been a little disappointed by Destiny, but there are plenty out there still having lots of fun with Bungie's shooter, and whatever your position on it, this is a cracking little sub-£300 PS4 package from Tesco.
The Paradox Indie Bundle contains the following titles:
The deal is time-limited, and will only run for the next day, so be quick if you fancy snapping it up.
Bundle Stars are throwing a massive sale on the PixelJunk series, slashing down three of the best games in the series to £0.70 apiece.
That's a big saving and perfect if you missed IndieGameStand's pay what you want deal earlier this month. Nice one Gooner! Make sure to bookmark our cheap PC deals to keep informed about the latest bundles and bargains.
The Xbox Live Countdown To 2015 Sale has reached its second day, revealing a 33% discount on... Costume Quest 2.
Oh. It's not the best deal we've ever seen (especially since the PC version has fallen below £5 before) but by all accounts Costume Quest 2 is fun, humorous and reminds us of why we used to love Double Fine before the SpaceBase fiasco. Full credit to teddy1590 for updating his monstrous HUKD post!
Max Payne 3 is only £3.99 on PSN (PS3). Click here to buy it! >>
Max Payne 3 may not be the best game in the series, but it's certainly a cathartic and intense shooter in and of itself. Less film noir, more slow-mo abattoir. Either way, £3.99 is an incredibly cheap PS3 deal and a great spot by Spark @ HUKD!
Remember that you can download a couple of free DLC packs too.
We'd given Rune Factory 4 up for lost. The latest farming sim/RPG hybrid released Stateside nearly eleven months ago, but us Brits were left high and dry at the last minute. As such we've had to make do with the mediocre Hometown Story and decent if grindy Fantasy Life, shooting our transatlantic neighbours envious glances all the while.
But now, at the death, Rune Factory 4 has quietly released on the 3DS eShop thanks to XSEED and Marvelous Games... and I'm delighted to report that it was absolutely worth the wait. Each individual facet of the varied experience works brilliantly, from the farming to the dungeon crawling, life simulation, in-depth crafting and romance, but fit together so well that it feels like a cohesive single package rather than a jumble of random gameplay ideas.
In a Christmas that brought us Persona Q and Pokemon, Rune Factory 4 feels like a surprise present; as if I'd unwrapped the gifts under the tree only to discover a brand new bike waiting outside.Click here to read more...
Scroll down the page and it's the first console bundle deal in the list. Argos have done it again with an absolutely cracking Xbox One bundle deal, and that £20 voucher is the icing on the cake. Click here for more info on the promotion, but be quick! The promotion only lasts until the 21st December.
The Giana Sisters: Twisted Bundle contains both Giana Sisters games (Twisted Dreams and Rise of the Owlverlord). You'll definitely want to pick this up if your a platformer fan, with both games featuring some innovative mechanics and fiendishly challenging moments that both pay homage to the genre's forebears and cultivate something new and fresh at the same time.
Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Xbox One controller now just £39.97 at GameStop. Click here to buy >>
Fancy grabbing a Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Xbox One controller, but don't want to pay £50? Well GameStop have you sorted there. Thanks to wildswan for the tip!
The so-called "console wars" are usually framed as a straight battle between the PS4 and Xbox One, but over the last twelve months these two gaming titans have been thoroughly embarrassed by a quiet, humble yet devastatingly impressive contender. No ifs, no buts: the Wii U is the must-own console of 2014.
Some argue that "consoles are an investment," but I'm not convinced by the logic. Money in the bank is an investment. An investment is an investment. A console, meanwhile, is only as good as the games you can play on it right now, and this is just the first way in which the Wii U proves its worth for any serious gamer.
There's no denying that Nintendo released their system sellers this year. Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros deliver local multiplayer perfection -- a niche that both Microsoft and Sony are ill-equipped to contest -- while Bayonetta 2 casually destroys the hardcore competition. A triple-threat of essential software to be sure, but dwelling on these three games does the Wii U's software library a huge disservice.

After a year of waiting, Rockstar have finally confirmed that GTA Online's Heists will arrive early next year. There'll be 5 story strands and 20 missions in total, not to mention a selection of new vehicles and opportunities for crazy co-op shenanigans. Don't get me wrong, the fact that it took so long was shameful, but we can't wait to play it nonetheless.
Glad to see that my sleazy namesake Lester is on form - he's the handsome one of the family. Here are your headlines.
Deals have been far and few between for this one, but this latest offer from Amazon is by far one of the best ones we've seen. If you're a 3DS owner who has yet to get hold of it, this is a fantastic opportunity to get one of the best games - let alone RPGs - of 2013. Be sure to check out our review to find out why.
