Who needs all these new-fangled games? Get an N64 & Goldeneye for £54.99

We always like to be on the cutting edge, but you can't forget the greats. If you fancy going retro, seeing what all the fuss was about or just bringing something incredibly awesome to your next local multiplayer session, you can now buy an N64 with Goldeneye 007, controller and all the cabling for just £54.99 boxed.

It's used, naturally, but the seller is reputable and the hardware is tested. You'll need to grab another controller (preferably three more) for the full deathmatch experience though!

SEGA more your speed? You can pick up a used Dreamcast for £49.99, though these are a dicier pre-owned proposition as the lasers can be jogged out of alignment or require calibration. Have a great weekend!

Get Crush3D for just £3.00 on 3DS

Crush3D is a nuanced and tricky little puzzler, allowing players to switch between a 2D and 3D world to solve increasingly brain-shredding challenges. The 3DS' stereoscopic display is used to great effect, but be aware that there's a stiff difficulty curve to contend with.

GAME are willing to part with a copy for just shy of £3.00 in their Easter Sale, which is exceptionally cheap for the physical version no less!

You can still get a New 3DS for just £117 while stocks last

The New 3DS is a fantastic piece of kit and may actually be better than the XL for many gamers. It's incredibly comfortable, functional, boasts groovy cover plates and increases the original 3DS' screen size while still offering the super-stable 3D, enhanced processing power, C-Stick and other awesome perks. Read our full review for all the details.

You can now get one for £117, which means it's probably time to get off the fence and onto Monster Hunter 4!

There'll be a new voucher tomorrow (presumably... MARCHSALEDAY4?)

The Order: 1886 drops to £27.99 - if you're not too busy playing Bloodborne

The Order: 1886 is gorgeous, short and barely interactive in parts, but at least you can get a copy for £27.99 on PS4.

You need to be aware that the price does come with a caveat: this is the Spanish version, so UK resale value will be limited. However, the game itself runs perfectly in English.

The Order: 1886 is visually astounding throughout, but the actual game is crushingly average -- and that's when it lets you play it! That said, the shooting sections are fun and the Thermite Rifle is superb. Brendan reckons that the level of detail elevates what could have been a terrible game into one that's worth checking out so long as the price is low enough. £27.99 is a good start, though we'd prefer £18.88. Read our The Order: 1886 review for more details.

Oh who are we kidding. You're already playing Bloodborne, aren't you?

You should be playing Pillars Of Eternity this weekend - Champion Edition falls to £18.89 today only

I reviewed Pillars Of Eternity yesterday and quite frankly I wish I was still playing it now. "Pillars Of Eternity is a masterpiece and nothing less than essential for anyone who's ever heard of the Infinity Engine," I wrote, dribbling all over the keyboard with barely-surpressed lust. "Superbly written, expansive yet rich and detailed, tactical and thought-provoking, it's the sort of roleplaying experience that we've been dreaming about for years."

It's amazing. Amazing.

So basically, you need to get on it. Hard. Currently it's available on Steam and Green Man Gaming, though today only you can grab  the Pillars Of Eternity Champion edition for just £18.89. Use the CDKeys Facebook voucher code for the £1 discount, which you can get by clicking the widget at the top of the store page. You'll get plenty of extras into the bargain.

Kid Icarus: Uprising swoops down to £19.85 on 3DS

We described Kid Icarus: Uprising as "a triumphant and emphatic return to form for Nintendo" in our 9/10 review. "It contains more innovation, more personality and more unabashed fun than we've seen over the last two years from the beloved company; creating a unique, gorgeous, unfailingly competent and staggeringly replayable portable epic."

"Uncomfortable controls stop Uprising from securing perfect marks, but be in no doubt, this absolutely has to become part of your collection."

Seeing as you can now buy Kid Icarus: Uprising for £19.85, there's no excuse.

Titanfall is only £14.86 on Xbox 360

Titanfall is still a magnificent shooter. Accessible yet deep, ridiculously fun and empowering, mechanically peerless, it's well worth getting into even if the player count is now admittedly rather low. It's also an incredibly important game, directly responsible for the rush to include exciting vertical mechanics we see in most next-gen FPS titles these days.

If you want to get involved, you can buy a new Xbox 360 copy for £14.86. Remember that the DLC is free to download!

Alternatively you can buy Titanfall on Xbox One for £11.99 used.

Evolve & Monster Expansion Pack now just £27.85 on PS4 and Xbox One

Evolve is about to receive its first major DLC in the form of the Behemoth monster. This massive bruiser weighs more than twice as much as an Easter Island statue, can roll up into a ball of death and can throw up massive rock walls to trap its prey.

The DLC is released on March 31st, and you can get ahead of the curve by buying Evolve and the Monster Expansion pack for just £27.85 on PS4 and Xbox One.

Before you do anything, though, make sure you read our Evolve review because I can't wholeheartedly recommend buying it.

Get Assassin's Creed: Freedom Cry for £2.99 in the Get Games Weekend Sale

Get Games are hosting an epic Assassin's Creed sale this weekend.

It's well worth a look, as there are savings aplenty, but the standout bargain has to be Assassin's Creed: Freedom Cry. This standalone expansion casts you as an escaped slave seeking justice, vengeance and freedom over three worthwhile hours. £11.99 was silly, but for £2.99 we say go for it!

Zavvi's huge Anime & Manga sale includes some essential viewing & game-related bargains

Zavvi are currently running an absolutely enormous anime and manga sale. It's a great opportunity to load up on DVDs and Blu-Rays of some utterly much-watch films, series and OVAs, from Akira to Ghost In The Shell and more niche viewing like the fantastic Kill La Kill. You can also start working on your Naruto or One Piece collection if you're made of money and in for the long haul.

You can save an extra 10% if you buy any two items, and get a further discount using voucher code VOUCHC5.

But why are we, a games site, posting about it? The fact that I love anime is no secret around these parts, but there are also plenty of videogame tie-ins on offer, including Tekken: Blood Vengeance, Professor Layton and the Eternal Diva and... Street Fighter. Well, someone will enjoy it.

GTA V graphics have 'degraded' on PS4 & Xbox One, Rockstar investigating

People whine about games being graphically 'downgraded' all the time. To be honest, we tend to tune it out these days.  So when we heard a few gamers alleging that GTA V had suffered a visual hit on Xbox One and PS4 following the latest update, I must admit to being rather dismissive.

But they're only bloody right!

GTA V's graphics have noticeably worsened with the release of update 1.08, and Rockstar are actively investigating.

GOG launches 20 Gaming Fundamentals Sale

Or alternatively titled: GOG recycle the same Topware and Night Dive sale they always run every few weeks.

Still, worth a look. There are plenty of genuine and niche classics on here including Earth 2150, Septerra Core, Wings and Rocket Ranger, all at rock-bottom prices. The Two Worlds titles are especially cheap.

Normally we'd be all "oh my gawd System Shock 2 best game ever gush gush gush," but it's currently in the All Stars Bundle.

Bloodborne launches today - and you can buy it for just £39.99

Happy Bloodborne Day! Okay, so 'happy' might be a less appropriate word than 'harrowing' or 'punishing,' but there's no denying that Bloodborne is excellent. If you didn't pre-order, never mind, because you can now grab a copy for £39.99.

Dark Souls fans are already champing at the bit for this dark, complex and moody experience that drips with atmosphere, but even those who didn't get on with From Software's previous efforts have a lot to look forward to. Hell, I don't actually like Dark Souls and I can't wait. Find out why here.

In fact, to be completely honest with you, I just bought a PS4. This PS4, to be precise.
