There's less than four weeks to go until the Halo franchise returns for its next big instalment. To help build up the excitement in the meantime, 343 Industries have released an infographic that not only reminds us of the various content that will be available, but gives us insight into things such as how long the campaign will last, how many weapons there will be, and how many maps will be available for the multiplayer. You can view it in its entirety by hitting the jump.Click here to read more...
Yes, it's not 100% gaming related, but we felt it was worth pointing out. If you're an Xbox One owner who likes their sports, this might pique your interest. Now TV are currently giving away 7 days access to the Sky Sports Pass, which grants access to all seven of the Sky Sports channels free of charge. From the looks of it, existing Now TV customers can get in on the action as well, but if you already own the Sports Pass you won't be able to just add a free week onto your existing package.
As always with this sort of thing, you'll need to put in your payment details for this to work, but the interesting tidbit in all of this is that it won't activate automatically - in fact you have 365 days to activate your week's worth of free sports viewing. The offer expires on on October 11th, so get a move on if you want to watch all the football*, all the time (for seven days.) Thanks to Saxon @ HUKD!
*Other sports are available.
It's that time of the week again where we get yet another Fallout 4 infomercials. This week Bethesda tells us all about Intelligence in Fallout 4, with the retro-styled video explaining how it will fit into your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. statistical makeup.Click here to read more...
DONTNOD and Square Enix have released a very short teaser trailer for the finale for Life Is Strange that's short, dark, and gets right to the point. Warning us that the storm is almost here, and showing us that Max's day is about to get a hell of a lot worse (which is kind of impressive considering how Episode 4 ended) it reminds us that the conclusion arrives in just 13 days.Click here to read more...
Having previously been only available to those who pre-purchased the game directly from Blizzard, the three prologue missions for StarCraft II: Legacy of the Void is now available to everyone. That includes those of you who haven't bought Wings of Liberty or Heart of the Swarm - all you need to do is download the StarCraft II Starter Pack and you'll be able to play through the three missions, which provides around about an hour or so of gameplay.Click here to read more...
Nintendo have announced that a brand new Premium bundle for the Wii U will be coming to Europe at the end of the month. Along with a Premium console, it will also include Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon, making it a great place to start if you’ve yet to get hold of Ninty’s latest home console.
That said, there are a few issues. Firstly, the words “Limited offer” are used in the announcement, meaning we have no idea how many will be available or who will stock them. Secondly, no price is mentioned, although our educated guess puts a potential price between £250-300. Considering the next few months will be prime time for Nintendo to strike with some aggressive pricing, let’s hope they make it more affordable.
UPDATE: MCV are reporting that the bundle will be priced at £239.99. If that proves to be accurate, this could well be the best Wii U bundle to buy (provided you can get your hands on one.)
If you're still getting your money's worth out of your PS3 and want to play the latest MGS title, this is the cheapest deal around by far. It beats the next best offer by a tenner, which is a significant saving. Did it deliver a satisfying conclusion to the MGS saga? Not really, but as a stealth sandbox it was an amazing achievement. Thanks to Buzz for the heads-up!
Be sure to check out our Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain (PS4) review for more details.
The dino-based sandbox title has been getting rave reviews all over the shop, despite still being in early access. As such, the price has managed to stay pretty high, with the cheapest deals only reaching just above £15. As such, the latest Steam Midweek Madness deal is one to consider if you've been tempted to give Ark a go. With brand new snow biomes having just been added, now is certainly a great time to find an existing server to stomp around on, or make your own dino-riding paradise. Thanks to Webhead @ HUKD!
While the Open Beta doesn’t start until tomorrow, quite a few people are already playing the Early Access beta for Star Wars Battlefront. Those battling it out on Hoth are realising that it’s quite the demanding beast in terms of hardware, so you may want to check out the minimum and recommended specs for DICE’s latest. We’ve got them for you after the jump, including the cheapest price around should you decide this is the FPS you’re looking for.

After teasing the internet with images of cave paintings, Ubisoft have finally announced that Far Cry Primal is a thing, and will be with us early next year. Coming to PS4 and Xbox One on February 23rd 2016 (with the PC version arriving a month later) it appears to be a stand alone installment in the series and not an expansion like Blood Dragon was for Far Cry 3. The trailer gives us a look "the original fight for humanity’s survival with its innovative open-world sandbox gameplay, bringing together massive beasts, breathtaking environments, and unpredictable savage encounters."
It also highlights that Saber-toothed
Tigers Cats will most likely be the new Honey Badgers ie. complete and utter deadly jerks.
If you're looking to get hold of the recently released BlazBlue: Chronophantasma Extend, you should probably head over to Rice Digital. They already have some of the cheapest prices across all platforms, but you can save an additional 15% by using their voucher code, making their listings the best around by some margin.Click here to read more...

No, you read that headline correctly.
Earlier this year we saw Half-Life running on an Android Wear, and now a group of hackers have managed to bring the classic FPS Doom to Apple's wearable computer. The effort occurred during a Hackathon event at one of Facebook's offices, as developers Lior Tubi and Mehdi Mulani worked to get the game running on the beta version of WatchOS2. The end result isn't exactly the slickest port, as you'll see by watching the video after the jump, but it's an impressive feat none the less.Click here to read more...
While fans of the long-running anime / manga series might get a kick out of thing one, we found it to be somewhat lacking when we reviewed it last year. Still, if you held off this long to try out 'complete' edition of Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 (with all its additional swimsuit costume glory) it's certainly worth a look for under a fiver. On top of that, you'll be saving over a tenner over the next cheapest deal as well. Thanks to Buzz for the heads-up!

It's currently one of the many key features for the Xbox One Elite Controller - which costs an eye-watering £129 - but yesterday news emerged that controller remapping won't remain an exclusive perk to the deluxe peripheral for much longer. Director of Program Management for Xbox Mike Ybarra used Twitter to confirm that all controllers for the Xbox One will soon be able to remap its controls.Click here to read more...
The price for The Old Blood seems to be hanging around the £10 on consoles, but by using the voucher code above you can get the PS4 price for a few pounds less than that. Considering how you're getting a 6-hour long campaign that is up to the same standards as The New Order, this is a fantastic offer for the stand-alone expansion that holds is own as one of the best FPS experiences of the year. Cheers to Buzz for the find!

You can get hold of the standard edition of Shadow of Mordor for just a fiver, but if you're willing to spend a few more pounds you can get hold of all of the DLC as well. The orc-hunting sandbox received high praise last year, and although I felt its open world was somewhat flat, the unique nature of the Nemesis system being backed up by an enjoyable combat system made it one of my favourite games of 2015. For under £8 you should check it out if you have yet to do so.

As much as I liked Destiny, even I agreed with many others over its issues during the first year of its life. A lack of live events during patrol missions, the ridiculous way the Light levelling system worked, and a poorly implemented storyline meant that, unless you had a group of like-minded players who were happy to repeat the same raids over and over, your end-game solely existed in the Crucible. The first two add-ons did little to help this, presenting too little content for their asking price.
So The Taken King represented a chance to alter the course of Destiny’s… well, destiny. A few of those much-needed changes were felt before the expansion went live – namely the way progression worked and how Light affected gear – and it finally gave me hope. Were Bungie finally using the feedback to deliver on Destiny’s potential? Would The Taken King fix all the other issues that plagued the game? Would I get ever used to the fact Nolan North was now voicing Ghost?

We've featured similar deals for this one in the past, but if you still haven't tried Spec Ops: The Line, you absolutely should at this price. Although it didn't break genre conventions in terms of mechanics, and its multiplayer section was tacked on (as admitted by the developers themselves), Spec Ops: The Line provides one of the most thought provoking action storylines in recent memory. For that reason alone, it’s worth a look at under £4. Thanks to kaylanify @ HUKD!
