Is DriveClub worth a second chance at £14.99 pre-owned?

Driveclub now £14.99 at Grainger Games (pre-owned). Click here to buy >>

We bashed DriveDlub at launch for its missing features and broken features, but several months on, Sony's maligned racer has apparently improved in terms of the netcode, challenges and amazing new dynamic weather. This stuff should never have needed to be patched in, but we're glad it's there. So, perhaps this cheap PS4 deal might be worth a look for £14.99 pre-owned if you don't want to wait for the PS Plus edition at less than fifteen quid.

Some of our regulars and peers seem to think so. Do you? Thanks oUkTuRkEyIII!

Saints Row IV: Re-Elected Edition only £27.98 at Zavvi. Click here to buy! >>

Saints Row IV is as brilliant, anarchic and deceptively clever fun now as it ever was. If you want to buy the new PS4 version that includes all the DLC and the new Gat Out Of Hell expansion, Zavvi are already dipping beneath the magic £30 mark, so long as you're not waiting until the magic £25 or £20 mark that is. Thanks benrelics!

Cheers FantasyDeals!

Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3: Full Burst now only £3.35 on PC at Funstock. Click here to buy! >>

Use voucher code #FUNRICE for the extra discount, courtesy of the fine folks at Rice Digital.

If you're a fan of Naruto Shippuden and didn't buy Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3, the Full Burst Edition will suit you down to the ground. It's just like the anime: amazing fight scenes, gorgeous animation and ten billion hours of tedious angsty exposition delivered by uneven inconsistently-written characters. Which sounds terrible, yet somehow the series works and so does the game, especially in multiplayer. £3.35 is a steal since the RRP is a whopping £19.99!

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 2 Review | Gamindustri Scandal

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 1 is brilliant. Compile Heart finally managed to back up their trademark cheeky style, titillating art and unbridled fanservice with true quality, turning a shonky cult classic with a great story into a complete package. The result was an excellent handheld JRPG and the perfect opportunity for Idea Factory to reboot the series from a position of strength.

Unfortunately they decided to remake Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk2 instead. This unnecessary sequel managed to completely miss the point in several key areas when it released in 2012, so Re;Birth 2's massive improvements to combat, graphics and gameplay flow can only go so far.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 2 Review | Gamindustri Scandal

We return to the parody world of Gamindustri, in which four nations based on console manufacturers (Planeptune, Lastation, Leanbox and Lowee) battle for shares and market dominance in a quirky sci-fantasy universe. However, the champions of each nation's console -- our heroines from the original game -- have been kidnapped by the evil piracy organisation ASIC and its overlord Arfoire, meaning that it's up to their little sisters to put things right. In steps Nepgear, loosely representing the Game Gear, who has to team up with the game's own developers and other handheld console avatars to save the world.

Maia now £12.03 with voucher code (Steam Early Access)

Maia (early access) now £12.03 on the official site. Click here to buy! >>

You'll need to use voucher code: WENEEDMONEYTOBUYABEANBAGSFORTHEOFFICESOISIMONCANTAKENAPS. No, really.

This is an odd deal in that you'll get a Steam code for an alpha that's currently in early access, and has racked up nearly as many negative reviews as positive. As such, we'd actually suggest waiting for the finished product rather than buying in now, but if you're already planning on getting into this space colony building game on the ground floor, this is currently the cheapest way to do so (saving you nearly £6).

Guild Wars 2 only £8.75 this weekend, buy once play forever!

Guild Wars 2 only £8.75 on PC from Saturday January 24th at 16:00. Click here to buy! >>

Guild Wars 2 is fantastic. An enormous world with numerous factions, great PVP, a strong personal story that can be soloed right up until the final boss, but encouraging you to organically meet up with other players with dynamic events and enormous collaborative battles. What's more, it can be yours for a ridiculous £8.79 this weekend (from Saturday January 24th), and it's buy to play!

That's right. No subs. Just £8.75 and you're in, forever. Thanks to Just Wondering @ HUKD, and to @DelTorro on Twitter for clarifying the start date!

As someone who still logs in from time to time (look out for Byssk on the Desolation server!), I'd definitely suggest picking this up. The amount of entertaiment you'll get, even solo, is insane.

Iron Fisticle now only £4.19 on Steam. Click here to buy! >>

"Iron Fisticle nails it: an uncomplicated and deeply wholesome fusion of Robotron and Gauntlet that absolutely delivers where it counts. Hectic action, a fantastic arsenal, deceptively deep moment-to-moment action and an addictive progression system that makes each game over a little victory of its own. It's not going to change the face of the industry, but it's bloody good fun." - 8/10 Iron Fisticle review

To celebrate a major new patch that adds extra depth, tweaks and features (details here!), Confused Pelican have slashed prices by 30% over the weekend.

Blackguards 2 Review | Queen Of Bugs

Cassia is magnificent. Cast into a dismal oubliette and left to die with only a Machiavellian 'how to rule' handbook and a thousand venomous spiders for company, this betrayed noblewoman emerges horribly disfigured and horrifically insane from years of literal and figurative poison. Seeking violent revenge, she rallies the dregs of society and lawless mercenaries to her cause, marching across the lands and stopping at nothing to finally seize the throne for herself -- including murder, torture and worse -- both directing battle and directly bringing it with sword and spells.

We've seen plenty of female villains like her over the years... but in the twisted and morally bankrupt world of Blackguards, Cassia is our hero. The lesser of two evils, depending on how you play her, that is.

Blackguards 2 Review | Queen Of Bugs

She's a great and compelling new character carry a sequel, providing a solid emotional core to build two dozen hours of punishing hex strategy around. Blackguards 2 improves, expands and smartly cuts down upon its predecessor in a number of smart ways. Unfortunately, while you could describe Cassia as the 'Queen Of Bugs,' that's arguably a fitting label for the game itself too.
