Lego Jurassic World trailer takes you for a tour while we dig up the best prices

The latest trailer for Lego Jurassic World ties in neatly with the new movie as it gives you a tour of the newly opened Jurassic World theme park. We're sure the opening will run smoothly. No wait, little Lego people are running for their lives and I'm pretty sure I saw a Raptor doing a wheelie on a bike. Clear your backlog people, this game is going to have you glued to your seats until that Platinum Trophy pings. Enjoy the trailer and take a look at our roundup of the best preorder deals for every format below.

Try D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die for free on PC with the new demo

D4: Dark Dreams Don't Die is the latest episodic game from the creator of Deadly Premonition, but it crashed and burned on Xbox One. Thankfully the wild and deliciously mad project is coming to PC, where it will hopefully attract a cult following.

Want to get involved? You can now download and play the demo for free.

D4 launches on PC in a few days' time. Check out the demo below.

EA has confirmed that the upcoming Need For Speed reboot will demand a constant internet connection, presumably because it worked so well for The Crew and NFS: Rivals.

Move aside Minecraft, LEGO is back and it's building bridges

"Minecraft is digital Lego, we only wish we had invented it." - David Gram (Lego's marketing director, August 2014)

It's not too late though, is it? With over 560 billion physical Lego pieces created world wide and the fact that Lego in February grabbed the title of 'World's most powerful brand" from Ferrari, it's always been obvious who runs the best block party.

Until Minecraft.

7 mins of new Batman: Arkham Knight footage

7 mins of new Batman: Arkham Knight footage

Today's new video for Batman: Arkham Knight shows seven minutes of continuous footage from a segment of the game. This gives us an excellent impression of the different play styles available in the space of a few short minutes. We're always happy to see gameplay over snappily edited snippets of cutscenes.

Over the course of seven minutes, we'll see Batman swoop over Gotham's beautifully lit Chinatown, before he dives through a building's glass skylight and straight into an indoor brawl with no loading sequence at all. This part of the story sees him rescuing a rather underdressed Poison Ivy (where are your pants, Ivy!) from Scarecrow's goons. There's nothing spoilery to look out for though.

After a quick cutscene Batman gives her a lift in the batmobile to Gotham PD, giving Warner and Rocksteady the chance to show off how you can smash through buildings for shortcuts as alternatives to the route-planning line on the HUD. There's a brief battle against the Arkham Knight's armoured tanks on the way, which is a good excuse to transform the Batmobile into Battle Mode for some quick strafe and shoot rocket-fuelled fun. Take a look for yourself below and maybe play through Asylum and City to get ready for Batman: Arkham Knight in a month's time.

Looks like the Xbox One controller is finally getting a 3.5mm headphone port

The Xbox One controller may be a beautifully-machined and impressive bit of kit, but it also suffered from a few deeply annoying omissions. One of which was the lack of a standard headphone port, meaning that we had to pay extra for adaptors or buy all-new hardware.

From next month, however, this won't be an issue.

Uh-oh, Sony just called the PS Vita a "legacy platform"

It's no secret that the PS Vita is floundering here in the West, despite a fantastic selection of localised Japanese games releasing on a regular basis. After completely sidelining it at last year's Gamescom presentation, Sony has now described their premium handheld as a "legacy platform."

Which is not great news, frankly, but might not be as damning as it first sounds.

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt gets patched on PS4, update coming to Xbox One soon

The Witcher 3 is a handsome-looking game, but CD Projekt RED have been taking some flack for the foliage, frame rate, tiny interface and other annoyances. Thankfully they've been working on a patch, which went live on PC over the weekend and is now available on PS4.

The update is also pending certification on Xbox One, so chances are it will be available on Microsoft's console soon. We've got the patch notes after the break.

Yoshi's Woolly World is set to be fantastic fun. Just thinking about my hands-on preview session last year brings a big broad smile to my face.

However, it's also a textbook example of how to implement unlockable amiibo content. After I posted an article last week outlining my concerns about where Nintendo's transmedia toys might be headed, Yoshi's Woolly World reminds us that Nintendo actually know what they're doing.

First of all, I'd encourage you to watch the trailer again. Try to resist the urge to make "aww" or "squee" noises if you're reading this at work or in public. Wasn't that adorable?

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is ready to make good on its apology package by adding Halo 3: ODST into the mix.

UPDATE: But not this Friday, apparently. "A placeholder release date for the ODST campaign for Halo: The Master Chief Collection was inadvertently listed on the Xbox Store," reads a new update from Microsoft. "We continue final testing and will make an official announcement once our release date is determined, and apologize for any confusion."

PSA: The Humble Nintendo Bundle is amazing, but it's also region-locked

The Humble Nindie Bundle is amazing. Containing several fantastic Wii U and 3DS games (and a few mediocre ones, but hey), it's a sensational collaboration.

Unfortunately, we can't have it here in the UK. In case you don't know, Nintendo eShop codes are region-locked, meaning that British and European consoles will not be able to play the games. There's no workaround either, since it's built into the hardware itself.

So look but don't touch, and more to the point don't buy it unless you own a US console or just fancy donating to charity!

Mad Max Savage Road story trailer

Seen the movie yet? With some solid reviews behind the remake, we're getting more excited for Avalanche's game as it slowly edges near its September release. Today's new trailer gives us some insight on the story for the game. That's not to say it isn't packed with explosions and brutal vehicular combat.

Take a look at the trailer below and we've rounded up the cheapest pre-order prices we can find too. Although, we imagine some better prices will come along before September 4th.

Project CARS screeches to a halt on Wii U - 'we're running at 23fps'

Project CARS looks gorgeous on PC and current-gen consoles, but it originally promised to bring its hardcore and uncompromising brand of simulation to last-gen systems and the Wii U.

Whoops.

The PS3 and Xbox 360 versions were totally scrapped, but Slightly Mad Studios have admitted that the long-delayed Wii U version still isn't up to snuff and is running at an atrocious frame rate.
