Lego Dimensions story trailer makes it hard to resist

Parents, do not let your children see this trailer! There's no way they'll not want a piece of Lego Dimensions after seeing this. And how are you going to play it if you have to share with the little blighters?

Today's trailer gives us the biggest look yet at the story for Lego Dimensions, the new name in the toys-to-life genre that we're already trading in our Skylanders and Disney Infinity tat for. The mind-boggling mashup of characters and worlds including Batman, Lord of the Rings, Back to the Future and The Wizard of Oz looks like the sort of toybox-inspired fun that's going to be a blast to play. It's not going to be cheap, but we've hunted down the best deals for preorders if you want to get involved at launch. You'll save a small fortune compared to an impulse buy on the high street too.

New Game+ confirmed for The Witcher 3 as final piece of DLC

The latest and final batch of the 16 free DLC pieces from CD Projekt Red has been announced today via Twitter and could well be a new lease of life to the title for those with a full completion under their belts. "New Game+" is to be added to The Witcher 3 according to a statement posted on Twitter today. Unfortunately the DLC isn't quite ready just yet, with the studio having stated that it currently needs a bit more time.

Should you feel slightly unsure of what "New Game+" actually is. You may recall something similar when playing a title such as Borderlands 2 (known as "True Vault Hunter Mode"), where upon completion you are offered a chance to re-start the game again at the same level you completed it, carrying all inventory items, money and proficiencies with you from the your first playthrough.

Street Fighter V beta extended after terrible start

Many gamers (including most of the Dealspwn team) were planning on getting stuck into the PS4 beta for Street Fighter V over the weekend, but those plans were scuppered by Capcom mere minutes into launch. On Friday afternoon, the fighting game's beta was taken offline for maintenance and has struggled to get back online throughout the weekend.

We were planning on bringing you a team roundtable impressions piece on the game, but you may have to wait a while as collectively, we've mainly just seen the title and loading screens in action. The beta was due to finish tomorrow, but Capcom have confirmed [via Twitter] that the beta will be extended, although by how much remains unknown.

Watch 9 minutes gameplay footage of Until Dawn

Originally intended for the Playstation 3, Until Dawn finally makes it's Playstation 4 release on 28th August with its 90's chick flick horror-esque approach. On the anniversary of their friends disappearance, Ashley, Chris, Emily, Jessica, Josh, Matt, Mike, and Sam spend the night in a log cabin, unaware they are being hunted by a serial killer (honestly, why would you?).

You can check out the 9 minutes of gameplay footage below...

Jon previewed Until Dawn for us last August after getting his hands on the game for a 45 minute gameplay session at Gamescon, after which telling us:

"Until Dawn is a very different kind of horror game, in that it's halfway between a choose-your-own-adventure novel, David Cage cinematic QTE-fest and a Saw film. A good Saw film, if you can imagine that.

The Wonderful 101 hits a...wonderful price at only £17.86

Platinum unleashed their full creative force on The Wonderful 101, holding nothing back, and the lunatic density of its layered gameplay systems sometimes threatens to overwhelm. Thankfully raucous fun factor and Kamiya's trademark tight design conspire to create a modern classic on Wii U, so long as you're willing to master it. - The Wonderful 101 Review | Platinum Unleashed!

It's a brilliant Nintendo Wii U title, it's £17.86, It's a no brainer. Let us know how you get on with it.

Candy Crush, Plants Vs Zombies, Angry Birds and for most, the new Fallout Shelter. All mobile games popular for that long commute in a morning when on the train or bus, simply sounding out the world by flinging birds or coordinating sweets into the correct formations to lessen that daily monotony.

What about if we could actually play Half Life on the way to work? and not just on your iPhone or Galaxy S5, how about playing Half Life on your smartwatch?

Resident Evil Revelations 2 release date confirmed for PS Vita, life in the old dog yet?

I argue the case every time somebody insists to me that the Playstation Vita is dead, it's not dead, it's simply an underestimated product. Uncharted: Golden Abyss, Minecraft, LittleBigPlanet, the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster, Rayman Origins, Steins; Gate, Persona 4: Golden, to name just a few of the outstanding titles the PS Vita has to offer, it's not a dead product, we just ask too much of it. Or at least, I think so anyway.

On the back of the recent rumours doing the rounds about the upcoming release of XCOM: Enemy Unknown Plus for Sony's handheld Playstation device, we now have official confirmation of Resident Evil Revelations 2 set for an August 18th release, see, there is still life in the old dog yet.

Remember that Sega CD game Night Trap? It could well be coming to your browser soon

This title certainly brings back some great memories from the 90's. You may well have been playing it along with Sewer Shark or Sonic CD back in the days of glory, the days of the Sega Mega CD.

Tom Zito, Mark Klein, Jim Riley & Rob Fulop of the original Night Trap team tried last year in a Kickstarter program to have the game remastered in a new high definition makeover named Night Trap: ReVamped, unfortunately they fell short of their $333,000 goal, only managing to achieve $89,843.

Life is Strange Episode 4 - Darkroom coming next week

New trailer released

Could this be the episode that sees the promising series finally stop treading water? After Episode 3's ending, we'd certainly expect so. The new trailer looks like the search for Rachel Amber and the foreseen storm are going to feature heavily in the next part of Max's adventure.

In other news, the series has already reached one million sales. Here's to hoping Dontnod won't make us wait another six weeks for the final episode.

You really should dive into Dontnod's new series, as it's shaping up nicely so far. Be sure to check out my spoiler-free reviews of Episode 1Episode 2 and Episode 3.

Dishonored: Definitive Edition sees its price slashed in half for owners of the previous generation

It's hard for me to praise Bethesda as of late without coming across a little too overly loving towards them. It's just under a month ago that I explained how I appreciated how Bethesda schooled the industry with Fallout 4's reveal, and now, well now they are offering Dishonored: Definitive Edition to both Xbox One and Playstation 4 owners who owned the original on either the Xbox 360 or the Playstation 3 at just half price (£15).

The great news?...
