Chances are that you've already played Borderlands 2, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, Civilization V and BioShock Infinite... or one of them at the very least. If you've missed out on all four, however, you can grab the whole quartet for £16.00 from Green Man Gaming. Be sure to use their OQE4LG-WEQPSE-SMCME1 for the additional saving.
UPDATE: Not enough? Okay then, why not also have the X-COM Complete Collection, Civilization 4, BioShock and the original Borderlands too!
Thanks to apollolo @ HUKD, both for the original deal and pointing out the four newly-added bonus games in the comments!
Gamefly are currently running a tasty little sale that sees loads of 2K games reduced by 75%. Highlights include XCOM: The Bureau for £4.99, Civ V for a fiver and Sid Meier's Pirates for £1.25. It's all on the splash page, and you can save even more with the UKFEB20OF voucher code. Thanks to xEndox @ HUKD!
However, the cheekiest thing about this promotion is a free copy of Spec Ops: The Line, which you'll be sent via email when you buy a participating game. As far as I can see, there's nothing stopping you from buying one of the UFO games for 75p, then laughing all the way to your free game.
Irrational Games have effectively closed their doors, but not after providing one of the defining IPs of the last console generation. If you want to experience the BioShock series as a whole on PC, FunStock Digital are selling the whole lot for £9.99, from the seminal original to the under-rated BioShock 2 (bite me) and acclaimed if controversial Infinite. You'll get Steam codes. Thanks to the legendary jaystan @ HUKD!
Yesterday we took a look at a handful of tips that would serve would-be hunters well in Turtle Rock's upcoming multiplayer FPS -- Evolve. But what about the one player not on that team? What about the lone wolf playing the part of monster? Well, we thought we'd deliver a few pointers to those of you who are going to look to take down the fearsome foursome as the monster, based on our hands-on time with Evolve.
Therefore, without further ado, here's the Evolve Survival Guide: Goliath Edition.
1. Choose your powers wisely
You start the round by choosing two out of four powers on offer: a rock throw, fire breath, charge, and an aerial slam. We were advised that the rock throw and the fire breath are often the best choice for the early game (you can unlock the other abilities as you evolve), because you're not enormously powerful to the begin with, and therefore ranged powers can give you something of an advantage. The fire breath in particular is handy for chasing down creatures to feed upon.Click here to read more...
We went hands-on with Turtle Rock's new multiplayer shooter Evolve the other day, and we were mightily impressed with the tense 4-on-1 gameplay. Evolve sees a team of four hunters, each with their own distinct class-based weaponry and abilities, fighting to take down a marauding beast. In our case, the beast in question was basically the lovechild a rancor and the Hulk.
It's a surprisingly tactical affair: Hunters have to stick together, and the monster must know when to stand and fight and when to run and feed. So we've put together a couple of survival guides and beginners' tips based on our time with the Hunt mode earlier this week.
First up... let's talk about Hunters.
1. Protect your Medic
The Medic is the most important class in the game. When someone dies, there's a countdown of a couple of minutes until the dropship will arrive to bring them back to the fight. If your Medic is the first to go down, that's a full two minutes to wait without any health regeneration, and there's no other way to rekindle that precious bar. It's imperative that whoever's playing as the Medic stays off of the ground as much as possible and remains a moving target, leveraging the ranged capabilities of their Medigun to stay out of trouble.Click here to read more...
Evolve is like playing hide-and-seek with big fat guns and a super-sized , super-agile, fire-breathing Rancor.
You'd look at a game that touted 4-v-1 multiplayer and perhaps scoff at the seeming imbalance. You'd wonder why anyone would possibly want to be the "1" -- after all, wouldn't everyone else be having a good time, laughing and joking around together, bonded by this virtual camaraderie and the spirit of teamwork, and you're just kicking your heels in the corner and weeping once more into a damp rag at the unfair loneliness of it all and... wait... I just clawed a guy out of the sky, toasted his support unit by vomiting fire everywhere, threw a rock at his head and now I'm pounding his lifeless corpse into the ground and I'm eating his face.
We got a chance to go hands-on with Evolve's Hunt mode recently, and Turtle Rock's latest multiplayer extravaganza is shaping up very nicely indeed. The game is set on the planet Shear -- a lush sphere home to a large variety of wildlife, some more dangerous than other -- and four hunters team up to take down one player controlling an enormous leviathan of a monster.Click here to read more...
If you haven't bought Grand Theft Auto V yet, your calculated apathy is about to pay of in spades thanks to this stonking deal. £20 is a huge saving, and the cheapest we've seen from the massive crime sandbox.
Personally-speaking, I emerged from the campaign much more impressed than Matt and Carl (not to mention Brendan) both in terms of the world, missions, progression, pacing and story. Mind you, I did enjoy the luxury of playing it through at my own pace. Thanks to gem_boss @ HUKD for finding this scorcher of a deal!
We weren't exactly enraptured by BioShock Infinite's first story DLC pack when it released last year, but if you bought the season pass -- seriously, please stop pre-ordering season passes before the content exists -- you might be interested in watching a brand new trailer for the second episode. It's spoiler-intensive, but will send BioShock fans into a frenzy thanks to the shock appearance of a familiar character. Don't say we didn't warn you.
To be honest, we reckon that Burial At Sea was a tacit admission that Rapture is a far superior setting to Columbia (which falls apart when you think about it for too long). What do you reckon, and are you looking forward to Episode 2?
Would you kindly let us know in the comments.Click here to read more...
Turtle Rock Studios, the creators of Left 4 Dead, have finally revealed their new project for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Evolve takes the four-player cooperative shenanigans of their classic zombie-killing series and takes it into a Sci-Fi setting, pitting the team against a terrifying alien who grows and adapts over the course of a single match in terrifying ways.
The twist? This time, the alien is directly controlled by another player, who'll likely be cackling insanely to themselves as they hunt down the puny humans with extreme slimy fangorious prejudice.Click here to read more...
Those that want to get their smackdown on can now do so for £20 thanks to this deal from GAME. Overall it means you can save around £10, which is a bit of a bargain for a game that hasn't been out that long.
It might not be as instantly gratifying as some of the older entries in the series, but the fact 2K14 goes for more of a fun factor this time around instead of a focus on "simulation" makes this year's instalment one of the better WWE games in recent years. With plenty of modes to get through, and the usual creation options to mess about with, it actually be worth a look at this price. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!
The price continues to tumble for Infinite, with this being the cheapest we've seen the PC version for. Overall this deal from GameFly will save you nearly £15, which is an absolute bargain.
Is it the masterpiece we waited so patiently for? The jury is still out on that one despite it being months since it release, but in our review Matt described it as "a thoroughly engrossing rollercoaster ride in a crumbling, thought-provoking paradise." For just over a fiver, I'd say it's worth entering Columbia and finding out for yourself. Thanks to jmss @ HUKD!
It's a repeat of the deal Green Man Gaming put out last month, giving anyone who has yet to pick up Firaxis' strategy title another chance to do so for a bargain price. Overall you'll save yourself around £8 over the next cheapest listing.
Showing the industry how to do a reboot for a classic series successfully, Firaxis’ turned based strategy game delivers what could be the game of the year, let alone the month. Providing the player with the freedom to save or screw up the human race in unbelievable style, it’s worth every penny of the asking price. Thanks to Gemsa @ HUKD!
EDIT: You can get even more off the price by using the voucher code GMG20-ODON7-FLUA7 at the checkout. It brings the Gold Edition down to £6.25 and Brave New World to £5.25.
If you've managed to hold off this long for the latest in Sid Meier's classic strategy series, you're in for a bit of a bargain with the sale currently going on at Green Man Gaming. The listing for the Gold Edition will save you around £4 over the next cheapest listing elsewhere.
The Gold Edition includes almost every piece of DLC released to date, including the Gods & Kings expansion, providing plenty of content right off the bat. Although the latest expansion Brave New World isn't in this bundle, GMG have also slashed the price for that to £6.79, meaning you can have a complete Civ V experience for under £15 if you really want to (and probably should, as it's the superior expansion pack.) Thanks to jaystan @ HUKD!
Here we have an excellent deal for the definitive Borderlands 2 experience for those who have yet to experience the latest adventure on Pandora. There's quite the saving to be had by using the voucher code above considering the amount of content you get.
So what do you get? All of the major DLC packs released so far, which includes Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, both Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Packs, the Mechromancer and Psycho characters, Creature Slaughterdome, Collector's Edition Pack, Premiere Club, and a number of character customisation skins and heads. Thanks to Spark @ HUKD!
XCOM: Enemy Within is out later this week for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360, and the hefty expansion to last year's stunning XCOM: Enemy Unknown is bringing a host of new features along with it, including a mysterious resources named Meld.
We're not going to give too much away, here, but Meld basically turns XCOM into Mechs-COM. Or Genetics-COM... but that didn't roll off the tongue as nicely.
As you wait breathlessly for our XCOM: Enemy Within review, here's a little taster video showing off a couple of the Meld introductory missions. Expect another Dealspwn Playthrough featuring ridiculously amped-up cyborgs and recombined gene-stuffed commandos very soon as well.Click here to read more...
BioShock Infinite's first singleplayer expansion launches on November 12th, Irrational Games confirmed today. Burial At Sea: Episode 1 takes places to Rapture, recasting Booker and Elizabeth as a hardbitten private investigator and mysterious client respectively. Irrational have also rebalanced the combat to make for a more tense experience, and added a few extra features into the bargain.
Details and blurb below. You can even watch the first five minutes of it here, if you really want to.Click here to read more...
While the listing states it is just for Mac, the redemption code for Steam will mean it works for PC gamers as well. Please note that this is not a standalone title and you need the base Civilization V game for it to work. Thanks to ecuador @ HUKD!
