Price Drop: Majora's Mask 3D now £25.37 on 3DS

The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D 3DS code now only £25.37.

Make sure to use Rakuten Voucher Code FEB15%OFF.

The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask has dropped another quid since yesterday, and it's a game that's well worth experiencing whether you're a Zelda neophyte or series veteran. For my money, Majora's Mask is a richer and more interesting game than Ocarina -- and though I'm not going to get on any Christmas card lists for saying this, it has certainly aged much better than its predecessor too. Thanks maverikk!

Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush only £26.95 on Wii U

We love Kirby, the adorable ravenous serial cannibal, and Kirby & The Rainbow Paintbrush is a fantastic idea. Using the Wii U GamePad, we'll create clay ropes for Kirby to swing around on and blast enemies away, finally using the touchscreen for more than just browsing.

It reviewed well Stateside, and if you want to pre-order, you can buy Kirby and Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush for just £26.95 at The Game Collection.

There's some confusion about whether the game is called Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush or Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, since the title differs depending on your side of the Atlantic. Thanks Gamer_U!

Need that Final Fantasy XV demo? Final Fantasy Type-0 HD preorder now £27.92 on PS4 & Xbox One

Final Fantasy Type-0 is out next month, and I'm actually more excited for the game itself than the Final Fantasy XV demo everyone seems to be so obsessed with. Type-0 is generally hailed to be a fantastic game that was cruelly never localised for the West, with great characters and surprisingly enjoyable combat, meaning that the fact we get to play it has to be worth celebrating.

That said, it should be on Vita. Porting a PSP game straight to new-gen consoles seems...ambitious.

We'll have a full review nearer the time, but for now, I daresay that plenty of you are looking for the cheapest pre-order price around, whether you're mainly waiting for the game or just see it as a wrapper for the juicy demo. You're in luck, as you can now get involved for just £27.92.

Make sure to use Rakuten Voucher Code FEB15%OFF. Thanks to uwantsum @ HUKD!

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate is now just £26.99 on 3DS - love it, hate it but definitely try it

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate now just £26.99 on 3DS at Base.

This is a great price for an utterly superb game. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate deserves respect, building on every aspect of the franchise by adding more freedom, detail, verticality and personality, and is practically essential at £26.99.

However, you might well hate it. I certainly do from time to time. Occasionally I have wild fantasies about snapping the cartridge in half due to its stern difficulty and odd design quirks. But I'm not far off reviewing it now... and currently I might have to hand out a perfect score.

Fable Legends becomes Free To Play... so we might actually play it now

Fable Legends becomes Free To Play... so we might actually play it now

Stop the presses. Microsoft has announced that Fable Legends, the asymmetrical multiplayer next chapter of Lionhead's parody RPG franchise, will be free to play on Windows 10 and Xbox One.

No, not just available as a demo. F2P.

"You’ll be able to play Fable Legends from beginning-to-end without spending a penny," proclaims the announcement. "That means you’ll have access to the entirety of Fable Legends’ storyline and all of the quests we release this year and forever. Everything in Fable Legends that affects gameplay can be earned by simply playing the game."

There will of course be a premium currency, but otherwise you're free to take on the role of hero or villain for nothing.

Which is absolutely fantastic news, because to be perfectly honest we'd completely lost interest.

Dragon Quest Heroes is coming West, but are Square Enix just testing us?

Dragon Quest Heroes is coming West, but are Square Enix just testing us?

Rejoice, JRPG fans, because Dragon Quest Heroes has been confirmed for a Western release on PS4.

In the first action-RPG to bear the series' name, players must rise up against insurmountable odds, challenging swarms of enemies and conquering gigantic monsters designed by world-renowned artist Akira Toriyama. Interestingly, Omega Force (the team responsible for many Samurai Warriors titles) will also be helping out with development, bringing their expertise with hack & slash action to the party.

It's been years since a full-fat Dragon Quest title came West (heck, we've pretty much had to make do with DQIX: Sentinels Of Starry Skies on DS) and frankly we can't wait.

This is fantastic news. Obviously. But the more I think about it, the more I can't help but ask a couple of niggling questions. Why now? Why this game in particular: the first hack & slash title in the franchise rather than Dragon Quest XIII or X? Is this actually the game we want? The answer, perhaps, is that Square Enix are using it to test the waters -- and to test us in particular.

Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy Curtain Call only £12 at GAME

Theatrhythm is awesome. And prounounced 'theatre-rhythm,' in case you were wondering. Blending rhythm games with RPG mechanics and the legendary Final Fantasy soundtrack, this is basically a must-have for any fan.

Better yet, you can now buy Theatrhythm: Curtain Call for only £12.99 from GAME.

The sequel expands on the original game massively, with a bunch of new gameplay modes, over 200 songs, and 60 playable characters. Another great spot from FantasyDeals!

The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask 3D has aged better than Ocarina, find out how for £26.99

The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask is now £26.99 on 3DS.

Make sure to use Rakuten Voucher Code FEB15%OFF. Thanks Gooner!

UPDATE: You can alternatively buy it for £26.99 from Base.com.

This is a great deal, but I daresay that some of you are reading this because of the title. Now, let's be honest, Ocarina is a timeless classic that's one of the most important games ever made, but it has also aged disgracefully. Much of it is empty space, a great deal of it is filler material and all of is is slightly clunky. Plus, its once-powerful themes of growing up are much less relevant now we know the full horror of tax returns and the reality of adult life.

In contrast, Majora's Mask has aged very gracefully indeed. The game is somber, melancholy and complex, full of symbolism and deeply thought-provoking lore to piece together yourself. Not only that, but the time-critical gameplay adds an extra sense of threat and urgency, while the major visual upgrades certainly don't hurt either. It's a more mature game in the real sense of the word, and a steal at £26.99. I'll write the review when I have time.

[OUT OF STOCK] Lara Croft And The Temple Of Osiris Gold Edition only £12.85 on PS4

Lara Croft And The Temple Of Osiris PS4 Gold Edition is fantastic cooperative action game that I actually enjoyed more than last year's LEGO title. Check out my review for the details.

Sadly it doesn't seem to have sold all that well... but Square Enix' loss is our gain, because the deals have been coming thick and fast. You can now buy the Lara Croft And The Temple Of Osiris Gold Edition for only £12.85 on PS4!

The Gold Edition includes physical swag, figurine and the season pass, and this cheap PS4 deal undercuts most other sites by a few quid. Thanks Gooner!

Justify your Xbox One Kinect sensor with Dance Central Spotlight - only £1.85 for 24 hours

Justify your Xbox One Kinect sensor with Dance Central Spotlight - only £1.85 for 24 hours

Dance Central Spotlight is only £1.85 on Xbox One.

Less if you use the Facebook voucher code - link at the top of the store page.

This is an outrageously cheap deal seeing as Dance Central Spotlight is a legitimately great dancing game that uses the Kinect 2.0 sensor brilliantly while delivering the same pulse-pounding full-body dance gameplay we expect from the series. The graphics are fantastic, accuracy is impressive and there's a decent number of tracks in the starting version with more available as DLC.

Which you should consume responsibly, of course. Though you're encouraged to spend extra for more tracks, £1.85 is still a stonkingly smart buy.

"The newest, digital-only game in the award-winning Dance CentralTM series focuses on the core dance experience," blurbs the blurb. "With more routines per song and a massive library of additional songs for purchase, Dance Central Spotlight lets you customize your dance sessions more than ever before. Break a sweat with an expanded Fitness Mode including specially authored fitness routines, or use the voice-activated Practice That mode to rehearse difficult moves immediately in-song. And with choreography designed for everyone from new to advanced dancers, anyone can take the stage."

Or in other words, it makes me look very silly but gets some endorphins pumping around my batter stream. I'm sure you trim young things will make it look good. Thanks FantasyDeals!

Xbox Live Games With Gold to double, confirms Microsoft

It's official. Following yesterday's rumours, Microsoft has confirmed that Xbox Live Games With Gold will be shifting gears and upping its game, amongst other overused clichés.

BioShock Infinite and Tomb Raider will both be free on Xbox 360 throughout March for Xbox Live Gold Members. Lara will take the first shift until March 15th, at which point Booker takes over for the rest of the month.

Meanwhile, on Xbox One, Rayman Legends will be free to download all March long, while local multiplayer darling #IDARB will remain free.

It's a great haul with more to come, as Microsoft has also announced that they'll be doubling the number of games available on the service. "Next month, you can look forward to four free games on Xbox 360, and two free games on Xbox One," apparently. It looks like Phil Spencer is ready to deliver on his promises of beefing up the service, so here's hoping that the quality matches the quantity.
