Though lazily framed and under-scripted, Far Cry 4 is a gorgeous, systems-oriented playground that provides endless hours of entertainment. And exploding elephants. - Far Cry 4 Review | When Rambo Met Dumbo

It's weekly roundup time, folks. You'll find links to the hottest news stories, feature articles and reviews below. First up, news highlights include the possible reveal of The Last of Us 2, Microsoft's Gamescom plans, more Uncharted 4 footage, July's PlayStation + games and more.
We're now halfway through the year, so we've put together our picks of the best games of 2015 (so far) for the PS4, Xbox One and Wii U/3DS. Elsewhere, I consider the impact of Naughty Dog dumping eight months of Amy Hennig's work for Uncharted 4 and also ask if the Xbox One Elite controller being a game exclusive could doom it to eternal high prices. Jon examines the anticlimax that was DriveClub's PlayStation + Edition and looks at the controversial/unwanted Metroid Prime: Federation Force. Our roundtable discussion asks the team 'Does the last of us actually need a sequel?'
Reviews this week include Dreamfall Chapters - Book Three: Realms and Steins;Gate.Click here to read more...
If you were to ask me to answer honestly if I would take an old school Atari console over todays Xbox One or Playstation 4, my answer would very simply be: Yes.
The Atari Flashback 4 console includes 15 extra games as a successor to the Flashback 3 console:
Bungie are taking a bit of a kicking from their Destiny followers as of late due to the blatant lack of support for early adopters of the game. Destiny The Taken King - The Legendary Edition includes, for less than the price of the upcoming expansion pack:
We are summing up an astonishing £80+ of Destiny content all neatly packed up into one product for only £39.85. It's a bargain, a controversial bargain, but a bargain nonetheless.
Alien: Isolation is one of my surprisingly loved games of the past year. The automatic bonus laying with the fact that it is nothing, nothing like Aliens: Colonial Marines.
It's scary, it's stealthy and it is all around just pure brilliance. At the risk of sounding cliche, I would strongly suggest to get the full immersive atmosphere from Alien: Isolation you close them curtains, get the surround sound turned up and just hope and pray nobody comes into the room otherwise a change of underwear may well be needed.
A deeply atmospheric, emotionally compelling game that manages to treat war as a serious topic and examines the hard choices made by those caught in the middle of conflict. You might not particularly enjoy your time with This War Of Mine, but it's definitely a game you ought to play, being one of the finest critiques of war that this medium has to offer. - This War of Mine Review | Collateral Damage
It's always nice here at Dealspwn if we find a deal and then possibly explain why we think it's a deal, but I think in this instance I'm going to take the reading strain away from the eyes (assuming you totally didn't read that review snip above!) and show you in the clever technological form of video what we think of This War of Mine...Click here to read more...
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
Granted, we have seen Dark Souls II cheaper this week with offerings from Grainger Games and Amazon hovering around the £12 mark, but £14.99 is definitely not to be sniffed at given the game currently sits on the Steam Store at a hefty £29.99, and let's face it, it's totally worth it.
Thanks to mrcwtonothy on HUKD for the heads up.
Following months and months of speculation that circulated the internet (as it does) of a possible remaster to the highly rated Gears of War title we were finally presented with leaked footage of the title back in May via YouTube thanks to the ever so covert user SparCkL.
Admittedly not the best video footage we have ever seen, we could however take from it that Gears of War: Ultimate Edition would run at 60fps in multiplayer, featuring new cutscenes with a whole suite of familiar game modes.Click here to read more...
Any track racer can make overtaking feel exciting, but Forza Horizon 2 also makes driving an absolute joy in and of itself. Superb cars, gorgeous scenery and a generous economy make up for a few missteps, meaning that the first big automotive release of the season will also be one of the best of the year. - Forza Horizon 2 Review | Drive Happy
...in my opinion anyway. Of all the Telltale games that have been produced BTTF is my personal favourite. Of course it's not the only title available in day two of the Humble Store Freeeeeedom Sale:

This has to be the lowest we have seen a 12 month Playstation Plus subscription for a good while and is just over £7 cheaper than purchasing from the Playstation Store.
If you haven't heard already you might want to check out July's Instant Game Collection for all PS+ subscribers starting July 7th.
Though there are a fair few AAA multiplatform games of note, it's also impressive to see just how many new and exciting experiences have made their way to the platform or are even being adapted from the PC for an entirely new audience.
Ori And The Blind Forest may not be the biggest game of the year, but it's a truly lovely little thing regardless.
It's a magical experience, from its unique platforming gameplay to its emotional story and eyepopping art direction, and shows that the Xbox One is doing its best to provide a true breadth of software. An oft-forgotten gem and one that we weren't able to secure to review back when it first launch. Now, finally, we can do it justice.Click here to read more...
I think some people get a little nervous and apprehensive at the thought of navigating a website with a different language content than they are generally used to. There is absolutely no reason to guys, with the help of Google Chrome and Amazon's convertor it's a breeze and as simple as ordering from Amazon.co.uk.
If you use Google Chrome then their inbuilt translator will unscramble all that Italian text into plain English for you and Amazon even display the GBP price delivered before you click that all important 'purchase' button. Honestly, it's as easy as that.
Despite the limitations of its aging engine, Telltale have managed to replicate the world of Westeros in its cel-shaded art style. More than that, the dangers and intrigue from Game of Thrones are there, and if Iron From Ice is any indication, we could be in for an enjoyable yet emotional charged journey to save House Forrester. - Game of Thrones Episode 1: Iron From Ice Review | “The North will remember that”
Please note: Requires a Telltale Games account to play. Code provided after purchase is redeemed on Telltale Games' website.

We've seen it at £18.99 recently before it took a rather upsetting rise back up the monetary scale. We don't care though because it is definitely worth Base's £18.99 asking price twice over.
Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is utterly magnificent. Newfound vertical freedom, extraordinary new monsters and native 3DS multiplayer makes for the best game in the series to date, coupled with a much more compelling storyline and some killer new features.Click here to read more...
