Time to go back to Destiny? It's only £14.95 today

If you traded in Destiny not long after launch, you may have regretted it since. On the plus side, it's really cheap nowadays and there's a hell of a lot of extra content to it now, so maybe this is the time to get back into Bungie's online shooter.

Destiny has been great fun so far, albeit a somewhat shallower experience than we were expecting thanks to a gated levelling system that makes it difficult to get past Lv20 without a hell of a lot of work. Don't even get us started on the rotating PVP modes. If you're planning on playing missions with a group of friends though, there's a moreish experience to be found that's unlike anything else on the new consoles. You don't necessarily have to fork out for the new House of Wolves DLC to enjoy the game, as Jon explains in a recent article.

Ryse: Son of Rome is worth a shot at £9.45

If Xbox One exclusive Ryse: Son of Rome has been on your radar for a while, maybe this £9.45 offer is right for you. This offer also saves you abut £10. To get a 5% discount, go to the retailer's Facebook page and click the link. You don't have to enter an email address, just enter any text and press enter for a code.

Thankfully, this didn't end up being the awful Kinect game it started as. Sure it's a bit repetitive, but as far as meaty and satisfying combat goes, this is a lot of fun. Just don't try and rush through it too quickly if you don't want the action to wear thin. Even 18 months after launch, this is still one of the best looking games on the Xbox One.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on PS4 only £23.85

£23.85 for a copy of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on PS4 is a great price and  a fiver cheaper than most other sites.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has been a grand return and reinvention for the FPS series. The futuristic setting has been the perfect excuse to introduce the exoskeleton which gives players double jump and speed boost dodge skills. The campaign was oodles of fun and had the best of Hollywood (Kevin Spacey) and gaming VO actors (Troy Baker) to keep you hooked throughout. Oh, and the multiplayer is better than it's been in years -head straight to Uplink and Kill Confirmed modes to see why. Here's my full review.

Mortal Kombat X only £29.95 today on PS4

Mortal Kombat X is one of the best entries in the series and this PS4 deal is a fiver cheaper than other sites.

Take a look at my Mortal Kombat X review for a full report. I can tell you now that fighter fans should be all over this one. The combat is super smooth and incredibly meaty and the story mode is surprisingly strong, giving you a taste of multiple characters. There's tonnes to do after the story too, with challenge towers with crazy match modifiers and hundreds of items to unlock in the Krypt. I've also reviewed the Jason Voorhees DLC.

Thanks to Illusionary.

Official mini green Xbox One controller for £21.99

Need a kid-friendly controller? How about a mini official Xbox One controller from just £21.99? That's the pickup price, or you can add £3.95 for home delivery.

Sure, it's pretty disgusting, but the smaller size could be ideal for younger gamers. According to the reviews, the cord is long enough to reach the TV comfortably and the bright colour of the controller and cord make it easier to avoid tripping up on them. It's not a bad price for a spare in general if you're in the market for one. Alternatively, you can get a full-sized one preowned for £19.99.

Need The Witcher III today? Get it now for £22.79/ on PC

The The Witcher III: Wild Hunt has been doing very well with the critics. The sub-£20 deals we saw as preorders have long gone, but £22.79/$35 is still way better than other prices around the net. To get a 5% discount, go to the retailer's Facebook page and click the link. You don't have to enter an email address, just enter any text and press enter for a code.

By now, we would have loved to hell you how good The Witcher III is first-hand, but our review copy is making a rather convoluted journey towards us. From what we've gathered though, Geralt's latest adventure has a huge world to explore, with your choices directly affecting events in the game world, even during optional quests. Today better be the day Mr. Postman.

XO Kinect 2.0 available from £35

If you've been considering picking up a Kinect 2.0 for your Xbox One for a while, this is a great deal. For £35 you can grab a preowned Kinect 2.0, with a 12 month warranty, at one of the many stores around the country. Alternatively, if you want it posted to you, it'll cost £37.50. I've seen used ones going for close to £50 on eBay, so this is certainly your best deal.

The games for Kinect have dried up a little, but the voice-activated features of the Xbox One work very well with the camera. It's also great for Skype all the camera will 'follow' you around the room of you're moving about. Fingers crossed more games are announced at E3, but there are plenty of dance games to get stuck into at least.

Lego Batman 3 is great family fun on PS4 at £16.99

£16.99 is hard to resist for Traveller's Tales' latest outing, especially if you're a Lego lover. This PS4 price is not only cheaper than the XO version, but also the last-gen games too. Great deal.

The DC license may lack the star quality of its Marvel rival, but the refined elements of Lego Batman 3 ensure this is an improved sequel, despite the removal of an open world to explore. As ever though, this is best enjoyed in co-op if your sanity can take a bit of taunting from the camera. As you'd expect there's about 30 hours of collectible stuffed gameplay on offer.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance £2.79 on X360. Seriously

Apparently £2.99 earlier this week wasn't cheap enough! That's right, this excellent slice and dice title you forgot to buy a few years ago is now only £2.79 on Xbox 360. Enjoy!

Platinum Games really rescued this one when they took over development. While stealth is sometimes an option, Rising is much more fun when played with the pedal to the metal. One minute you slicing up troops with meticulous precision, then you're running up the sides of missiles in mid air, or you're taking on three Metal Gears at once. This is not a subtle game. Put it in your face now.

Alien: Isolation Nostromo Edition only £13.99 on Xbox One

The Nostromo Edition of Alien: Isolation is back on offer on for Xbox One, with a rather tasty £13.99 offer. This deal is even cheaper than the regular version at most sites!

Alien: Isolation has been a big success. The pulse rifles and dodgy AI have been ditched for a pure survival horror experience that sees you constantly fleeing from the alien by hiding under tables or in lockers and so on. Sure, it can get a little repetitive, but this is till the best Aliens game in years. The Nostromo Edition comes with the Crew Expendable DLC starring the original cast of the first movie.

Mortal Kombat X Jason Voorhees DLC Review | This is why they run

Season Pass content can be tricky to navigate, especially when you're not sure how a piece of paid content is going to work out. At Dealspwn we always advise waiting for some coverage or reviews before putting any extra cash down, especially for season passes. We really enjoyed Mortal Kombat X at launch and have been impressed with the variety of characters already on offer. So how about the DLC ones? Well, here's our review of the first to arrive, the infamous, Jason Voorhees.

The indestructible star of the Friday the 13th movies (yes, except the first one) initially seemed a rather odd choice for the series, as he's never been known for his pace and the idea of him performing combos seems a bit absurd. Thankfully, NetherRealm have given him a generous injection of pace and a decent skillset with linkable moves, while maintaining his sinister style.

Mortal Kombat X Jason Voorhees DLC Review | This is why they run

As with all the characters in Mortal Kombat X, Jason has three different fighting styles to choose from; Slasher, Relentless and Unstoppable. Let's start with Slasher, the simplest stance to learn and the only one that sees Jason wielding his beloved machete throughout.

Shadow of Mordor has unmissable features for only £17.99 on PS4/XO

If you want a game that actually features a next-gen idea, then grab a copy of Shadow of Mordor for just £17.99, saving you a few quid over the other sites. Actually, this is one of the best prices I've seen for a new copy of the game.

We can't get enough of Monolith's Shadow of Mordor here at Dealspwn and we thoroughly recommend you dust off your Uruk hunting skills to get a taste too. Turns out the Nemesis system has managed to back up its bold 'next-gen only' ambitions with a neat set of mechanics that sees enemies remember you and you can even brainwash them into fighting for you as you infiltrate the highest ranks of Sauron's army. There's an excellent set of skills available to take advantage of an enemy's weaknesses too to create unique experiences throughout. It also walked away with our Game of the Year award. Check out our full review here.

Rockstar suing BBC over GTA Drama

Rockstar are taking legal action against the BBC in relation to Game Changer, the broadcasting company's upcoming drama about the Grand Theft Auto series. Rockstar are suing for trademark infringement and have released a statement (via IGN):

"Take-Two Interactive has filed suit against the BBC for trademark infringement based on their movie currently titled 'Game Changer' as it relates to Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto video game series"

"While holders of the trademarks referenced in the film title and its promotion, Rockstar Games has had no involvement with this project. Our goal is to ensure that our trademarks are not misused in the BBC's pursuit of an unofficial depiction of purported events related to Rockstar Games."

"We have attempted multiple times to resolve this matter with the BBC without any meaningful resolution. It is our obligation to protect our intellectual property and unfortunately in this case litigation was necessary."

Hellblade dev diary shows development challenges

As fans of Heavenly Sword and dev team Ninja Theory, we can't wait to get our hands on Hellblade. The studio is aiming for a AAA action title, but made by a smaller team with a tiny budget. It's an ambitious project, and they have been very open with their approach since announcing the game and have shown us multiple dev diaries from incredibly early stages of the game.

Today's diary shows how the team have been creating multiple small 'vertical slice' demo for playtesters and the press. With a refreshing display of honesty, they freely admit that the first few were not great and left playtesters frustrated. With the latest build set to be shown to members of the press before E3, they have their fingers crossed that they have improved.

There's no set release date for Hellblade, and with such a small team, we'd be surprised if it happened this year. As with any game though, we'd rather wait until the game is ready than play a malnourished product. Enjoy the video below and be sure to head to their site to see past entries in the series.
