UPDATE: The DLC packs are now available to download.
The 3rd and 4th free DLC bundles have been released for The Witcher 3 by CD Projekt Red.
The two DLC packs are available on the Playstation Store, Xbox Store and PC now.
Although lacking productivity whilst doing so, I am really enjoying The Witcher 3 and at only level 4 over the past week all I seem to enjoy doing is checking out the scenery and gathering Parsley (I know, sad).
Make sure to check out The Witcher 3 | My first night in White Orchard which covers my first impressions of The Witcher 3 over the first six hours.
That Nintendo Wii U slowly seems to be creeping it's way to the magical £100 mark (my magical mark).
With all the purchases from Amazon International wether it be France, Germany or Spain you can always choose to pay in either GBP (£117.33) or Euro's (£113.43) dependent on the card you choose to use and wether any conversion charges will apply, If however you are not sure it's probably best to pay in GBP given the minimum difference.
Please note : Usually ships in 2-5 weeks.
Next month's PlayStation Plus games have just been announced and it looks like the lineup has stepped things up a little after a few thoroughly average months. Or has it?
If you've already bought Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes during one of it's many placements in the PSN sales, then you could argue that you're looking at another decidedly indie lineup. Call of Juarez: Gunslinger (ok, not very indie) is certainly worth a look if you didn't play it two years ago. The remaining titles range from the vaguely familiar (Cloudberry Kingdom) to the incredibly vague (Super Exploding Zoo).Click here to read more...
E3 2015 starts in less than three weeks, promising one of the most fiercely-contested expos of recent years. We're doing our best to predict what each publisher and manufacturer will bring to the table, so having covered Microsoft yesterday, it's time to take a look at their rival sitting pretty in the blue corner.
Sony are leagues ahead of the competition in terms of sales, console hardware specs and Bloodborne, but does their confirmed 2015 games lineup put them at a disadvantage? What about the Vita? It all comes down to how willing Sony are to surprise us.
Sony's E3 showing is probably going to be packed with the hottest 2016 lineup of all the platforms. Uncharted 4 and Project Morpheus are bound to get some stage time and it'd be great to get some pricing and release date info for the headset.
I really hope the Guerrilla Games IP will finally be revealed, especially if it's related to that 'leaked' image from a while back. The one with giant robot dinosaurs facing off against tribesmen. Who the hell wouldn't want that! I wouldn't mind a new Killzone, but it'll need to be an improvement over the pretty, yet dreary, Shadow Fall.Click here to read more...
If you're expecting a Splatoon Special Edition pre-order from GAME, chances are your gamer and Amiibo have unfortunately been stolen. An entire lorry-load was stolen on its way to the high street retailer, forcing them to apologise to customers and offer refunds.Click here to read more...
The Witcher 3 is a handsome-looking game, but CD Projekt RED have been taking some flack for the foliage, frame rate, tiny interface and other annoyances. Thankfully they've been working on a patch, which went live on PC over the weekend and is now available on PS4.
The update is also pending certification on Xbox One, so chances are it will be available on Microsoft's console soon. We've got the patch notes after the break.Click here to read more...

The weekly GamesCentre preowned deals are now live with some cracking savings on both Playstation 4 and Xbox One:
Check out these gaming and deals and various others including Xbox One controllers on the GamesCentre special offers page.
If you've ever wanted to own a comfortable plaid armchair with two enormous miniguns sticking out of the side, now's your chance, as Deep Silver have put the full-size official model up for auction to raise money for Special Effect. It's a great prop with rotating minigun action and a great cause to support, though sadly it appears that live ammunition isn't supported. Probably for the best.
The auction starts at £100. How much would you pay?
A similar auction took place for Deep Silver's Escape Dead Island shipping crate, though there were sadly no bidders. Still, if this is good enough for The Stig, it's good enough for you!
10 games at 26p a piece is a bloody bargain. That's what the current Mayhem Bundle from IndieGala offers should you choose to take all the games at £2.60!
Pay $1.0 or more to get these Steam games!
Pay $3.99 or more to get this bundle full of Steam games before price increases!
These special prices for this bundle will end at 3pm tomorrow (28th May).
Yoshi's Woolly World is set to be fantastic fun. Just thinking about my hands-on preview session last year brings a big broad smile to my face.
However, it's also a textbook example of how to implement unlockable amiibo content. After I posted an article last week outlining my concerns about where Nintendo's transmedia toys might be headed, Yoshi's Woolly World reminds us that Nintendo actually know what they're doing.
First of all, I'd encourage you to watch the trailer again. Try to resist the urge to make "aww" or "squee" noises if you're reading this at work or in public. Wasn't that adorable?

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt released last week and is apparently not too shabby. People describe it as "generally okay," "half-decent" and "probably worth a punt, I guess."
You know, in amongst the perfect scores and GOTY nominations. The Xbox One version is now just £37.99on Xbox One for the next 24 hours, which is one of the best prices I've seen.
You'll get a digital download code. Make sure to check out our Witcher 3 review diary: My First Night In White Orchard.
We’re now at the end of what is effectively the second act of Telltale’s Game of Thrones series, with only two episodes of its 6-part run left to come. As such, you can get up to speed by reading our reviews for Episode 1: Iron From Ice, Episode Two: The Lost Lords and Episode 3: The Sword In The Darkness. As always with our episodic reviews, our score will be published once the season is finished, reflecting the game as a whole.
Throughout the previous three episodes, it’s been clear that Telltale have done a fine job of making their version of Westeros feel authentic, but there has been one particular issue. While players have been able to make some key decisions, they have been subtle shifts towards the larger goal or, perhaps more to the point, ensuring the survival of House Forrester. There’s been a lot of “one step forward, two steps back” in that regard, but that finally changes in Sons of Winter. The Forrester’s finally fight back, climbing the ladder of chaos in a bid to take back what was lost, all of which makes this latest episode the most action packed one so far.

You take the Hyrule and I'll take the Lorule. Link, however, can take both in The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, which allows our hero to shift between the two alternate dimensions during the course of the adventure. It's actually one of my favourite Zelda games in years, an utterly excellent adventure that you can now grab for just £18.70. Thanks to Psychedelicate @ HUKD!
"Link Between Worlds is a fantastic game that most definitely needs your time and money. Despite its sequel status it brings plenty of new ideas to the table, the majority of which work very well, and some are truly inspired." - 9/10 review
Iron Brigade has suffered its share of hard knocks. Sued and renamed by a boardgame manufacturer, the game formerly known as Trenched was delayed in Europe for months on XBLA. Then, as the final insult, it was published on Games For Windows Live by Microsoft Studios.
Ugh. Thankfully the Iron Brigade is back with Double Fine, who have now destroyed the GFWL integration, added Steam matchmaking and slashed the price down to just £2.19.
"Iron Brigade shines as a cooperative mech title, but lacks the lasting appeal and variety necessary to keep us playing for more than a few weeks down the line," we wrote in our ancient Iron Brigade review. "While it lasts, however, it's an absolute blast... and fans of blowing stuff up with massive robots should definitely queue up the download."
As part of this weeks PlayStation Network sale you can get PES 2015 - Digital Exclusive Edition for just £10.99 on PS3 or £15.99 on PS4. The digital edition comes with 1 player from UEFA Team of the Year, 10 recovery points and 10,000 Game Points and Mario Goetze FREE as part of the bundle.
Magicka 2 is many things. It's a raucous sequel that builds upon the original game's superb spellcasting system, allowing us to create our own insane elemental magic on the fly. It's a parody that pokes fun at every license under the sun, yet still retains its own unique identity. It's a cooperative romp and a single-screen multiplayer delight.
But most importantly of all, Magicka 2 is the simple childlike joy of "accidentally" setting your friends on fire... then getting away with it.
From the original Magicka through its numerous DLC packs and HellDivers, Arrowhead Game Studios have cultivated a deliciously unique brand of competitive-yet-cooperative mayhem. Pieces Interactive are clearly on the same wavelength. Magicka 2 jams friendly fire firmly on then hands you and your pals a book of devastating spells, many of which will freeze, soak, electrify, pummel and/or disintegrate friend and foe alike. The result: an unsubtle game, but quite possibly the most fun you can have with your robes on.Click here to read more...
We know the season is now over and the inevitable FIFA 16 is due around September but £9.99 for the latest instalment is a cracking price.
"Not much has changed off of the pitch, EA Canada still can't seem to work out how to create stable netcode at launch, and goalkeepers still make hideous errors in spite of their obvious upgrades, but ultimately FIFA 15 is a fast-paced, thrilling triumph where it counts. It's frustrating at times, but it's also the most rewarding FIFA in years." - FIFA 15 Review | Thrilling Pace (8/10)
