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!
XCOM: Enemy Within isn't just Us vs Them. Firaxis' massive expansion is set to introduce a brand new human enemy faction, Exalt, who wreak havoc around the globe unless you hunt them down and rip their shadowy organisation to pieces.
After successfully managing to defeat one of their cells in our hands-on preview, but taking two losses in the process, I sat down with lead designer Ananda Gupta for a lively chat about what Exalt bring to the XCOM storyline and gameplay experience.
Jonathan Lester (Dealspwn): We've finally met The Enemy Within: Exalt, the new human enemy faction. Can you tell us about them? What's their deal? What's their objective?
Ananda Gupta (Firaxis): Exalt is a paramilitary secret society. Their goal is to subvert, infiltrate and overthrow the council and to seize control of alien technology; to seize this power. In this way, they're opposed completely to XCOM.
Visually, they look kinda dapper. They could be anyone, they could be walking down the street next to you, be at your job, but when they get the call, they go to their secret compartment and - whoosh! Ready to go. They prefer to wage their campaign against XCOM not in the open, but from the shadows. They place covert cells around the globe that XCOM can hunt down using intelligence scans. They'll prepare operations to launch against XCOM; things like propaganda to increase panic, sabotage to go after your credit reserves and research hacks to go after your research.

XCOM: Enemy Within is going to be an absolutely whopping expansion that profoundly affects the campaign from beginning, middle to endgame. PC owners will be able to download it as DLC, but console players will have to purchase it as part of a brand new retail edition at extra cost. To explain why, we asked lead designer Ananda Gupta - and it effectively comes down to convenience and the enormous amount of content.Click here to read more...
Developer: Firaxis Games

XCOM: Enemy Within is a clever title. It refers to the new dangerous cybernetic and genetic enhancements that augment yet corrupt your troops, and the invasive surgical operations you'll have to perform on your valuable soldiers to use the barely-tested shady technology.
However, it also refers to a brand new enemy faction, Exalt, a power-crazed secret society out to destroy XCOM from the shadows.
This new human threat strikes out against the Council through fear and manipulation, deploying cells throughout the world to spread panic and steal your funds. If left unchecked, they'll disrupt your research, raid your coffers and escalate panic ratings within your allied countries with vicious smear campaigns. They're a faceless, implacable and mysterious organisation who'll do anything to secure alien technology and see your fragile alliance crumble.
Will you stand for that, Commander? Of course you won't. There's only room for one faceless and implacable organisation on this planet. In between curtailing the extraterrestrial invasion, you'll hunt down Exalt cells, steal their intel and assault their base in a concerted effort to wipe out every last one of them. That said, these dapper operatives aren't going to make it easy for you, and fighting them is a completely new experience that will make XCOM: Enemy Within feel even more like a brand new game.Click here to read more...
XCOM: Enemy Within is looking seriously impressive ahead of its November launch, but lead designer Ananda Gupta would love to take on the strategy franchise again. Apparently it's down to Firaxis and 2K Games - and perhaps how well Enemy Within is received at retail.Click here to read more...
If you're the kind of gamer who loves to spoil surprises for themselves, you're in luck, because 2K have released the first five minutes of BioShock Infinite's upcoming story expansion. Burial At Sea brings Booker and Elizabeth to Rapture, recasting them as PI and client in the submarine dystopia.
THIS IS ONE BIG SPOILER. It should be fairly self-evident, really.Click here to read more...
That's right - if you haven't checked it out already you can now download and play Firaxis' strategy reboot for free until Monday. However, Steam's 75%-off deal isn't the best price, being trumped by Gamersgate, where you can get it for £6.00 when you use the voucher code GMG20-WS93W-R39MD. Thanks to Nemesiz
