Want to buy Watch Dogs, but worry that you won't get enough swag? Then here's the deal for you: Watch Dogs DedSec Edition now only £32.99 on PS4.
This is the cheapest price we've ever seen for the PS4 version, which includes the following merch:
Also included is around 60 minutes of extra DLC and bonus weapon rewards. If you've not discovered the delights of Chicago yet, this might just be the perfect opportunity - even if Watch Dogs does bury its more unique features under lots of generic sandbox padding. Thanks again, Buzz!
Resident Evil 6 is on the cheap again, you'd think the boxes were actually infected the way retailers tear chunks off the price to get it out of their warehouse. It's not all bad at all though for £3.85 on Xbox 360.
Despite being an improvement over Resi 5 and Raccoon City, we're still a long way off the glory days of the series. However, this deal offers great value for money. You're essentially getting three different campaigns for under a fiver. One is action-heavy like recent games, while another attempts to return to the older vibe of taking on shuffling zombies in creepy locations. We don't really like to talk about the melee-centric campaign though. Despite being able to finally move while shooting, the controls still feel incredibly dated and sluggish. But again, it's £3.85.
Get wang! Yeah, we're never going to tire of those jokes with Shadow Warrior. And when we can see discounts down to £15 on PS4 and Xbox One, why would we.
Shadow Warrior is an old school FPS, that relishes in retro mechanics. It says 'pish' to regenerating health in favour of guns that are slightly awkward to aim and basic visuals. On the plus side it gives you a ruddy big sword to hack enemies to kibble with and the humour is great compared with all the po-faced modern day shooters.
Following months of torment for many players and several weeks of teasing, not to mention the promise and subsequent cancellation of an open beta, 343 Industries have deployed the most significant Halo: The Master Chief Collection patch to date. Its aim? To finally fix matchmaking once and for all.
Don't jinx it. Don't even breathe. But as things stand, it seems to be working.Click here to read more...
Sorry, OUYA. My apologies, MOJO. But the fact is that Android Microconsoles have proved themselves to be a useless novelty: paperweights at worst and emulation platforms at best.
Gamers have no need for them since most of us already own an Android device and the ecosystem is poorly suited for big-budget living room gaming. And yet manufacturers keep on pumping them out, desperate to corner a market that doesn't really seem to exist outside of their imaginations.
However, NVIDIA may have finally cracked it with their latest Shield hardware.
What makes the newly-announced NVIDIA Shield console different is its ability to tap into NVIDIA's subscription-based cloud streaming, 4K-ready hardware, in-home games streaming and an initiative to bring more big-label games to the Android platform.Click here to read more...
Leak culture and insider info means that there are few genuine surprises in gaming these days, but every once in a while an announcement socks us out of nowhere.
Cue Wolfenstein: The Old Blood, a standalone prequel to Wolfenstein: The New Order announced for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.Click here to read more...
We've seen plenty of Mario Party 10 pre-order deals over the last few weeks, but if you haven't taken the plunge on Nintendo's next board game-slash-minigame-collection, Zavvi are currently offering the cheapest price around. Bear in mind that you'll ideally want a decent Amiibo collection to take full advantage of all the unlockable game modes, however. Thanks to darioredkin @ HUKD!
15 years. That's how long the PlayStation 2, the most successful console ever made, has been around. The PS2 wasn't just important for games, Sony were massively influential in making DVD the film format of choice by slyly slipping a DVD player into millions of homes too, much like they've did again with Blu-ray and the PS3. The games are what mattered though. Here's our list of the Top 15 titles we felt were amongst the most important. Of course, some tough choices had to be made, but that's how strong 15 years of PS2 really was. PS3 and Xbox 360 didn't get close to those numbers, but with the PS4 already at 20 million, maybe Sony fancy their chances. Here we go then, in order of release year...
The one that changed everything. The leap into a living, breathing 3D city from the old bird's-eye-view made GTA a place we'd spend months exploring in a never-ending crime-spree. The freedom GTAIII offered hadn't been seen before and the range of side-missions, collectibles and Rockstar's trademark humour and storytelling kept gamers glued to their screens well into the new year. Even now players would be able to load up the game and remember every street of the game as if they had actually lived there. Vice City might be the seminal title and San Andreas was bigger and packed with even more variety, but GTAIII will always be remembered as a true trendsetter.Click here to read more...
We've been spoiled for choice with cheap Xbox One bundles recently, and this latest offer is an absolute corker.
It's perfect if you want to hit the ground running, seeing as you'll have an awful lot of game to crack on with for less than the reccommended retail price of the solus console itself! Another great find by FantasyDeals.
Following yesterday's leak, Konami have confirmed that Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain will indeed launch on September 1st, bringing the Metal Gear saga to a close as far as Hideo Kojima is concerned. However, they've also revealed some new details about gameplay features and special editions, which we've rounded up for you below.Click here to read more...
Want your own piece of gaming merch? Why not create your own mug with this new offer from Snapfish, which allows you to upload an image and create your own personalised merch for, well, free beyond postage and packing. Which is only £1.99.
I might use this for my mug, but then again I used to be an extraordinary douche. Don't judge me too harshly, that's an old pic!
Sony has unleashed this week's selection of PS4, PS3 and PS Vita digital games deals, and they're really rather impressive.
First and foremost, The Last Of Us: Remastered is just £17.99/£19.99 on PS4, which is fantastic even if you've already played it and just want to leap back onto the multiplayer.
There's also a huge multiplatform Final Fantasy sale to celebrate X/X-2 HD coming to PS4, as well as some tasty tidbits from SEGA. Stealth Inc has been massively discounted to make the most of the buzz surrounding the sequel, Trials Fusion is 50% off and the Toejam & Earl Collection is all kinds of cheap. Sadly, Final Fantasy VII is nowhere to be seen, likely because they want to charge you full whack for the PS4 version. Either way, check it all out below.Click here to read more...
The latest PSN sale has The Last of Us: Remastered on PS4 for just £17.99, or only £19.99 if you don't have PS+. That's an awesome deal as it's at least £25 in the shops. Don't forget to download this month's Instant Game Collection too.
With Remastered, you're getting the slickest visuals and a higher framerate than on PS3 and the Left Behind DLC. In fact, if you bought the original PS3 game and the DLC today, you'd be paying a lot more than £17.99, so this price is even sweeter.
Thanks to Jon.
Cities Skylines is shaping up brilliantly ahead of next week's launch, promising to deliver the city-building experience that we've been waiting for since SimCity dropped the ball so very, very hard. Carl's already working on our full review.
However, if you want to get on board now, Green Man Gaming are all over it. GMG members can pre-purchase Cities Skylines for just £16.78 in the VIP section.
Alternatively, you could pick it up for £18.40 with voucher code B1CYB0-CLSSD1-ARAAGM if you can't access the VIP deals for whatever reason. Stay tuned for our review next Tuesday!

The Witcher 3 is one of the most anticipated games of the year, and I daresay that even the most stoic amongst you might be considering a pre-order. If so, you can currently pre-order it on PC for just £21.85, which is a serious bargain. You've only got 24 hours, so move fast!
UPDATE: Slightly grudging but no less genuine thanks to FantasyDeals, who found this seconds before I did!
What is Swedish Bitpop? Find out for yourself on Bandcamp, where you can listen to Fondell's This Story Is Happy End album for free and pay what you want to download it!
There's an awesome remix of Ken's Street Fighter theme, in case you're interested. Definitely a good way to power through the day. Another nice spot from Gooner, cheers!
While we didn't feel it was quite up to the standards of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, Origins certainly isn't a bad game and its story is highly enjoyable. For the price, it's definitely worth a punt especially since the technical problems at launch have been shored up. Thanks again, FantasyDeals!

If you still haven't played one of the best RPGs of 2014, Dragon Age: Inquisition is under £25 on PC!

Dragon Age: Inquisition had a lot to prove and succeeded in reaffirming BioWare's reputation as a top-flight RPG studio, delivering an enormous world, big decisions to make and even bigger dragons to fight. You can read Carl's Dragon Age: Inquisition review for all the details.
Valve presented a show at GDC last night, shedding new light on the Vive VR headset, the long-awaited Steam Machines and the next generation of Source Engine games.
It was... interesting.
Now, in the cold light of day, the three of us have put our heads together to recap and dissect the news as well as revealing our reactions to what was an odd little show in the end.
Half-Life 3 confirmed!
Gotcha. Sadly, despite Valve's GDC presentation kicking off at 3/03 at 3PM, there was no "3" in sight. No Portal 3. HL2: Episode 3. Left 3 Dead? DOTA 3? The more I think about it, the more I reckon some mischievous event organiser came up with the timings just to drum up some publicity.
Never mind, though, because Valve did bring some interesting announcements to the class. Starting with the fact that Source 2 is finally on the way and will be free to use. Valve joins Epic and Unity in opening up game development to everyone (with a little licensing kickback of course), meaning that big publishers will have to find a different excuse than "games are so expensive to make" to justify their silly prices. Plus, seeing as most engines launch with a flagship game... no, I won't get your hopes up.Click here to read more...
Mad Max has been officially dated for 4th September on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, which is great news for the long-awaited yet oddly absent tie-in. Unfortunately, it appears that the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions have been "left by the wayside" to focus on the shiner editions, which is actually fine by us since cross-genertional development can lead to plenty of compromises.
If you're interested, you get a Mad Max pre-order for just £19.99 on PC, which is likely to be one of the best deals around over the next few months.
