Those that want to get their smackdown on can now do so for £20 thanks to this deal from GAME. Overall it means you can save around £10, which is a bit of a bargain for a game that hasn't been out that long.
It might not be as instantly gratifying as some of the older entries in the series, but the fact 2K14 goes for more of a fun factor this time around instead of a focus on "simulation" makes this year's instalment one of the better WWE games in recent years. With plenty of modes to get through, and the usual creation options to mess about with, it actually be worth a look at this price. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!
We’re back with more WIldStar-based ramblings as the Class Drop coverage continues to roll on. We’ve got two weeks left, both of which feature two brand new classes (whose names are absolutely the worst kept secret ever, but how they function in game? That’s still under wraps) but before we dive into the latest (re)reveal, here’s a helpful hub with which to get up to speed.
All sorted? Lovely. Let’s begin.
So here we are – the last of the already-known classes is taking the spotlight this week. We’ve had the sword-weilding Warrior, the mind-bullet-firing Esper, and the gun-toting Spellslinger, but now it’s time for the one that aims to bring the pain before you’ve even realised what’s happened. Get ready, fans of the rogue, because you’re about to find your calling as the Stalker – part Batman, part Wolverine, part Predator, and all stabby-stabby awesome.
Yep, it's all kicking off over at Carbine Studios this week, as we've been granted permission to break the news on the final two classes for WildStar. This week's Class Drop will focus on the technology-wielding healer / DPS hybrid known as the Medic, and you can watch the latest DevSpeak to learn more about them by clicking play on the video above.
But that's not all we've got to show you. Oooooh no-no-no-no. How about a brand new in-game WildStar animated short which features the OTHER unannounced class? Because you can find that right after the jump.Click here to read more...
So, tomorrow I'll be heading to a special event for WildStar to learn about the final two classes, the Medic & the Engineer (which were revealed today). We'll be getting some hands-on time with the latest build of the game, but we'll also be chatting to Matt Mocarski, who is the Creative Director for the upcoming MMO.
So, just like with our interviews with Chad Moore and Stephan Frost, we've giving you the chance to submit some questions. Do you want to know something about WildStar that the Class Drop coverage hasn't addressed? Perhaps you want to ask about the design for the classes? Maybe you want to know how they'll all fit into the PvP side of things? Or you could use the opportunity to stir the pot for the upcoming Frost Vs Pappy developer deathmatch - it's up to you!
Go on, don't be shy - what do YOU want to know about WildStar? Post your questions below and I'll do my best to get them asked tomorrow. You can alternatively drop me a line on Twitter (@CarlPhillipsUK) over the course of Wednesday if you think of any last-minute questions.
Additionally, stay tuned to the site as later today we'll be posting part four of our WildStar Class Drop Wrap-ups, which may or may not once again demonstrate my amazing (and in no way rushed) image editing skills.

We're back with more from the Network Test for Dark Souls II. In today's episode, Carl hops back onto his Warrior to take on the opponent that bested him in the previous Network Test - the shielded Red Phantom. Will he manage to best his ancient nemesis? Will he be cleaved in half by that ridiculously large sword? If he does survive, will he find anything new and exciting waiting for him? There's only one way to find out...
Gamersgate are currently holding their Holiday Sale, and this deal from their current set of offers is certainly a highlight worth bringing to your attention. Overall there's a saving of around £3 compared to the next cheapest offer elsewhere.
As always, the Battlefield experience is at its best on the PC. Its single player campaign may not be the finest in the industry (although it has improved, a little) but its superior multiplayer suite compared to the previous entries in the series, as well as a host of revamped social features and the return of the Commander role, makes BF4 one of the best FPS shooters this year.
We're almost at the end of the Autumn Sale, which means we'll have some time to recover before the winter sale, which will once again ravage your savings, but don't worry about that - just think about the wonderful games you can get in today's offerings. Yesterday's deals are still available until 6pm today, so be sure to give them a look if you missed them.
So, let's get on with some highlights, shall we?
When I look back over the last 12 months, this one will certainly feature quite heavily as it certainly brought something different to the table. At this price it's absolutely worth playing the game that isn't a game, and follow the story of Stanley, or not. It's your choice after all... or is it? Ugh, this is all far too much this early in the morning.
Here's yet another chance to play one of this year's stand-out action titles for one of the cheapest prices the PC version has fallen to. If you fancy spending an extra pound you can get the Survival Edition, which some with some DLC and extra goodies.
The recently re-released strategy classic sees a 75% reduction in today's offers, making it a great opportunity to experience (or rediscover) why the Age of Empires series was so loved back in the day. The Forgotten expansion, as well as the brand new DLC, is also on offer as well should you wish to play as new civilizations or have extra foes to conquer.
For the rest of today's deals, which include Europa Univeralis IV, Dust: An Elysian Tale, and Garry's Mod, head over to the main page of Steam.
It's yet another deal from The Game Collection this morning, this time for the latest instalment in the Resident Evil series. This deal means you can save around a fiver over the next best offer elsewhere.
It may not have been a traditional Resident Evil experience, but does provide a fine opportunity for some co-op fun. At this price, it could be worth giving it a look to see for yourself. Thanks to BigJeffandCo @ HUKD!
Here's a great chance to get hold of one of the Vita's standout games for a bargain price. The deal from The Game Collection will save you around a fiver over the next cheapest offer elsewhere.
John has made no secret of his feelings that LBP Vita is the best game available for Sony's handheld, and it's hard to argue with him considering how naturally its Play Create Share mechanics fit with the touchscreen controls and camera functionality. Thanks to bargain76 @ HUKD!
We've still got a few more days worth of offers to go from Steam, and the new addition last night once again provide a little bit of something for everyone. It's worth noting that the previous day's offers, which include Borderlands 2 and Arkham City GOTY Edition for a fiver, are still available and can be seen by scrolling down below today's main offerings.
Speaking of which, here's some highlights from the latest batch.
If you've held off this long to try out the adventure series based on the Fables comic books, this is a great opportunity to do so. After all, it's yet another episodic interactive storyline from the folks at TT Games, with Matt stating in his review that "this could be the start of something truly magnificent."
It's yet another chance to grab one of last year's best games for a fiver, and considering how much content is there to get through you'll more than get your money's worth here. If you fancy getting additional content, the Deluxe Edition is also available for an additional £1.23, and even the standalone spin-off Blood Dragon can be yours for £4.07 if you want lazer-firing dinosaurs.
Pay Day 2 for £11.24 (Review)
Any sort of hype for this one got swept away in the face of GTA fever, but if you fancy taking part in some virtual heists with others this might be worth a look. A 4-pack is also available if you have three other friends who are interested, which will make the purchase cheaper overall.
For the rest of today's deals, which include Civilization V, Torchlight II, and Godus, head over to the main page of Steam.

We're back with yet another look at Dark Souls II from the recent Network Test. In today's episode of Dealspwn Playthrough, Carl once again logs in on his Warrior to conquer a dark cave he previously didn't have the guts to go inside and face off against foes lurking in wait. After that, Carl has a quick hands-on with the Sorcerer class, firing off some spells and, yet again, comes face to face with a murderous invading player. Does he survive any of this? Find out by hitting the jump.
Think your wallet can take around hit? Because it's time for round two of Steam's Autumn Sale, and there are a quite a few tasty looking deals in the latest batch. Yesterday's batch are still active if you have yet to give it a look, but here's the highlights from today's reductions.
Considering how much we've banged on about how good it is, we'd be surprised if you haven't bought a copy yet, but if you still have yet to it this is an absolute bargain for Firaxis' reboot of the classic strategy series.
At this price there's pretty much no excuse to give this rather dark yet utterly charming observation puzzle adventure title a try. Glory to Arkstozka!
It's one of the lowest prices we've seen for the game that still causes heated debates to this day. Regardless, for £4 it's certainly worth a go. Two pieces of advice though - use a gamepad, and don't trust treasure chests. EVER.
For the rest of today's deals, which include Don't Starve, Final Fantasy VII, and Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition, head over to the main page of Steam.
Well, the big day is here - Black Friday has begun, and there's a whole day of rather varied items on offer. Two deals have already gone live at the time of writing, but only the deal for FIFA 14 Ultimate Edition on Xbox 360 and PS3 for £29.99 still has stock. That deal will expire at 12:15 GMT or when the stock has been sold, so act fast if you want some footy action on (as of today, for real) last-gen consoles.
As for the rest? We've got you covered with a list of the upcoming potential bargains with their start times (and reviews where available.) Click here for the complete listings, although you can head over to the category and change it to show only video games for easier browsing.
Thanks to an issue where US players were unable to connect during the previous test, we were given another chance to get hands-on with Dark Souls II a few weeks ago. As such, we continue our coverage as Carl shares his experiences from the latest Network Test from November 2013.
In today's episode, Carl switches classes from the Warrior to try out a new addition to the roster - the Dual Swordsman. Giving his first impressions on the all-out-attack melee specialist, see how he fairs against familiar foes (and a murderous invading player) after the jump.Click here to read more...
Say goodbye to your that lovely paycheck you're about to get, or that tidy little saving you've been working on for a while - the Steam Autumn Sale is here and it demands tribute. In the form of cash, though - don't go sending blood sacrifices to Valve, that would be weird.
It's the usual setup of nine big deals being thrown at us every 24 hours (each lasting for 2 days) with a community-voted flash deal every 8 hours. We've taken the liberty of highlighting some of the stand-out offerings from the current selection.
Here's a great chance to catch up with Telltale's rather excellent marriage of light adventure gameplay and storytelling. While you don't get the 300 Days DLC with this purchase, that too has also been reduced to £1.99 should you wish to have more zombie-filled shenanigans.
It's been featured in many a deal over the last few years, and it isn't the cheapest we've seen this fall to, but if you still haven't gotten to picking up United Front Games' excellent open world crime-filled caper this is a great chance to do so. All of the DLC is reduced as well, meaning you can get extra missions or outfits with bonus abilities for relatively cheap.
This one has been in development for quite some time, but it has received praise for its homage to management games like Theme Park and Dungeon Keeper. While a standard copy will cost you a tenner, you can get all of Introversion Software's games (as well as the opportunity to create a prisoner NPC) by getting one of the most expansive packs.
To see the rest of the list, which include Skyrim, Antichamber, and Outlast, head over to the main page of Steam.
The big day is nearly here, and oh my - the list today is even bigger than the previous three days this week. We're actually ahead of the curve today, so we now the full list of games, consoles, and accessories that will be in today's sale along with their start times. Just remember, each item will only be on sale for a few hours at most, or until all of the stock has run out, so if anything piques your consumer interests make sure you're on stand-by at the times listed!
So, without any further ado, here's today's potential bargains (with reviews where available.) Click here for the complete listings, although you can head over to the category and change it to show only video games for easier browsing.
The price continues to tumble for Infinite, with this being the cheapest we've seen the PC version for. Overall this deal from GameFly will save you nearly £15, which is an absolute bargain.
Is it the masterpiece we waited so patiently for? The jury is still out on that one despite it being months since it release, but in our review Matt described it as "a thoroughly engrossing rollercoaster ride in a crumbling, thought-provoking paradise." For just over a fiver, I'd say it's worth entering Columbia and finding out for yourself. Thanks to jmss @ HUKD!
Well it looks the the Xbone and PS4's release is finally have an affect on the last-gen software sales, as as the price for the latest Call of Duty game is down to quite the bargain. It will save you around £9 over the cheapest offer elsewhere, and also comes with the Freefall map for MP modes.
While the multiplayer modes are limited in number, and the social features are lacking as well, it's the same COD-like experience with Ghosts. Basically, if you're looking for some no-nonsense shooter fun (now with added dog) you'll probably find enjoyment with Infinity Ward's latest. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!
Ready for some more flash deals? We've already had one in the form of the Collector's Edition of Batman: Arkham Origins for PS3 and Xbox 360 (Read the review here), currently priced at £49.99 and will save you £20 over the next best deal should you fancy some extra physical and virtual goodies with your Dark Knight. That deal ends at 12:15 GMT (or when the stock runs out) so act fast if you want in on that one.
Here's the schedule for the rest of the day (with reviews where available.) Click here for the complete listings, although you can head over to the category and change it to show only video games for easier browsing.
We’re into the third week of our six-week journey, taking a look at the classes you’ll be able to run around as in WildStar. Need to catch up on the other two? Consider this helpful mini-hub the saviour to your terrible ignorance:
So now we’re back up to speed and ready to roll, it’s time to dive into the class that, rather understandably, has been the most popular amongst the community and the closed beta testers – the Spellslinger, a space cowboy who uses ranged attacks and abilities whilst wielding a pair of blasters to decimate their foes. I mean, come on, it’s not too hard to understand its popularity. It’s basically as if Carbine Studios took Han Solo, Mal Reynolds, Roy Mustang (or whoever your favourite weaver of elemental spells is, although the Colonel is pretty badass) and Nightcrawler, blended them together, and created a ranged class so wonderful that I cannot find the words to describe how amazing a combination it is.
So this picture of a joyful otter will have to illustrate it for me.
