It must be getting pretty hard to resist buying an Xbox One console bundle right now. This one's looking mighty fine as it comes with the two Xbox One titles of the moment, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and Gear of War: Ultimate Edition and £30 of Argos vouchers, which should come in handy over the next few months. Be sure to scroll down to Special Offer 1 on the retailer's page to get this amazing deal for £299.99.
Thanks to konkywonky.
Both of these DualShock 4 PS4 controllers are usually at least £40, so this this £34.97 deal won't last long.
This price includes home delivery. The same site also has the best deal for the standard black DualShock 4 at £33.47.
Thanks to Tacozilla.
This is a great bundle if you're ready for new Metal Gear, but didn't get round to playing the teaser game. For just £40, you can get a physical copy of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and a digital code for Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes. Delivery or pickup options are available.
The best price for The Phantom Pain right now is around £37, so you're getting the Ground Zeroes prequel for just a few quid. If you've recently bought a PS4 for the upcoming games rush, this could be the perfect deal for you.
Thanks to exexpat.
This deal for The Stick of Truth isn't quite the cheapest we've seen for the PC version, but it's certainly the best around right now. In fact, it beats the next best offer by over a fiver. As we point out in our review, Obsidian Entertainment have managed to create an enjoyable and authentic South Park experience thanks to the involvement of Trey Parker and Matt Stone. With a combat system that is surprisingly deeper than it appears, it would seem that The Stick Of Truth has ended up being worth the wait - despite the hilarious censorship issues. Thanks to mrsusan74 @ HUKD!

The undead hordes of the T-Virus are making yet another comback next year, as Capcom have announced the Resident Evil Origins Collection will be arriving January 22nd. Containing the HD remasters for both Resident Evil 0 and the re-release of Resident Evil, the Origins Collection will coming out on PS4, Xbox One and PC, with a digital release on those systems and last-gen consoles planned for "early 2016."Click here to read more...
Here's a fine discount for those of you yet to make the jump to current-gen and still have an Xbox Live Gold subscription. Falling in price from £24.99, this is a huge saving. We felt that The Witcher 2's move onto console was a "a technical triumph", and helped to bring The Witcher series to a whole new audience before its well received third entry. Basically, at this price you should absolutely give it a whirl if you're after an expansive RPG to play through. Thanks to Noisetank @ HUKD!

We've seen this one slightly cheaper recently, but this is the cheapest deal around if you've yet to play Sleeping Dogs on current-gen consoles. Overall you'll save around £3 over the next best offer elsewhere. If you've yet to play United Front Games' fantastic open world action title, you should probably rectify that with this offer. Oh, and it comes with an artbook. Which is nice. Thanks to bennybentley @ HUKD!
Here's yet another 2016 title to get a confirmed release date, as Sony have announced that Uncharted 4: A Thief's End will be arriving on March 18th. While some of you might be happy with just a standard copy of the game, those of you after little extra physical & virtual swag may be interested in the Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Special Edition and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Libertalia Collector’s Edition.Click here to read more...
ArenaNet were very busy this week, delivering a trio of big announcements for its MMORPG Guild Wars 2. From a release date for the upcoming expansion Heart of Thorns, to the long-awaited reveal of raids, to the announcement that the base game is now free, we have all the details and reactions for your perusal after the jump.
While we previously knew that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided was to be released in 2016, we now have a confirmed release date of February 23rd (the same day as Mirror's Edge: Catalyst, interestingly enough.) As well as detailing the Collector's Edition that will be available, Square Enix have also announced an "Augment Your Pre-order" program to incentivise gamers into securing their copy early.Click here to read more...
It's seriously bad luck to be near George Stobbart. Just as his first Broken Sword adventure began with a death in Paris, someone is shot within minutes of Broken Sword 5. And so begins another adventure to find the murderer. There's more to it this time though as the shooter's main aim was to steal a mysterious (and quite disturbing) old painting from a Parisian gallery.
If you're new to the Broken Sword series, don't be put off by that daunting number in the title. This adventure works as a standalone title and instead of relying on series knowledge, merely gives the odd nod to fans via cameo appearances, and of course, irritable goats.
Broken Sword is a point and click adventure series with a neat, classic cartoon visual style that has been updated slightly to stay true to the series' roots. This fifth title was developed through a successful Kickstarter campaign, and was originally released as a two parter for the PC and the Vita. Thankfully, we now to get to play it on PS4 and Xbox One too.Click here to read more...
In the market for a new graphics card? This deal from Dabs is certainly worth a look, as it beats the next best price by around £20. Considering the power you get, there's fantastic value for money at this price, but it's made even better by the fact you get two free games. The first is Grand Theft Auto V, which is great because the PC version really is the definitive release, but the second free game is none other than Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which releases tomorrow. That's around about a £40 saving overall compared to the cheapest deals for both titles, which makes a good deal an ever better bargain. Thanks to fluffykitty79 @ HUKD!
It isn't the cheapest price we've seen, but thanks to VGB's voucher code you can save around £3 over the next best offer elsewhere. We're still waiting on our review code to arrive (*sigh*) but if Jon's preview session impressions are anything to go by - or the many reviews already online - The Phantom Pain might well be the perfect finish to the Metal Gear Solid saga. Cheers to Buzz for the heads-up!
This has almost certainly been done to emulate a similar move done over the weekend by a certain MMORPG, but here' what we know. The Destiny trial previously locked players to a level cap of 7, but that cap has now been lifted. What this means is that everything in the base game is now free to experience, meaning players can take on the Vault of Glass raid and take part in the Crucible PvP without paying a single penny.
Just to clarify - this does not include The Dark Below and House of Wolves expansions, but at least it means you can decide if you want to give Destiny another go, or if pre-ordering a copy of The Taken King is a good idea. We have no idea if this is the same for the Xbox One version, but if you have any joy be sure to let us know! Thanks to Blade3377 @ HUKD!
We know many of you have waiting for this one to hit that magic £20 mark, so now is the time to expand that 3DS games library. It beats the next best offer elsewhere by almost a fiver, which is a significant saving. Perfectly suited to Ninty's handheld thanks to its drop-in, drop-out style of gameplay, the freedom to allow the player to build up the town as they wish to makes it the best and most charming entry in the series... even if it does enslave you to a greedy raccoon, drown you in debt and force you into a life of menial labour. Thanks to neneromanovagirl @ HUKD!

Here's the cheapest price around for the upcoming Wii U exclusive, which beats the next best offer elsewhere by almost £4. Considering how well its predecessor held its price, this offer of £35 is pretty good going. We've made no secret of our high hopes and expectations for Xenoblade Chronicles X, with its expansive world to explore, monsters to defeat with enjoyable combat mechanics, and added multiplayer functionality. We'll ultimately find out in December if it has been worth the wait. Thanks to Gamer_U @ HUKD!
Here's another Humble Store sale highlight, this time for the season pass of the long-awaited Dreamfall Chapters. Three episodes (or Books) have been released so far for the sequel to The Longest Journey and Dreamfall, and it's a must for adventure genre fans. Amazingly atmospheric, filled with thought-provoking choices, and tied together with a brilliantly written narrative - I honestly cannot recommend this enough.
The Humble Store are rounding off their current sale today which has many titles reduced in price, but this one deserves a special mention for a number of reasons. Firstly, it's just £1.29 a copy, which is a superb price for this procedurally-generated first-person survival title where you are hunted by tweed-wearing robots. Secondly, the devs at Big Robot have just added in Multiplayer support, and while the feature is still in its beta phases it does mean you and some friends can try and survive the robo-pocalypse together. Which is just lovely, really. Thanks to jaystan @ HUKD!
With an interim patch hitting the PC version in the near future, now might be the time to take advantage of the low prices, with this listing being the cheapest the PC version has been. It's a shame really, because the performance issues experienced by many PC gamers ruined what was a brilliant end to Rocksteady's Arkham series. For under £8, it's certainly worth keeping in the Steam backlog until the fixes are deployed. Cheers to Buzz for the find!

If you're stuck in today on this rather gloomy Bank Holiday Monday and fancy buying some games, this voucher code from Video Game Box might come in handy. Putting it in at the checkout will knock 10% off all purchases for today only.
