Resident Evil 6 is great value at £3.85 on 360

Resident Evil 6 is on the cheap again, you'd think the boxes were actually infected the way retailers tear chunks off the price to get it out of their warehouse. It's not all bad at all though for £3.85 on Xbox 360.

Despite being an improvement over Resi 5 and Raccoon City, we're still a long way off the glory days of the series. However, this deal offers great value for money. You're essentially getting three different campaigns for under a fiver. One is action-heavy like recent games, while another attempts to return to the older vibe of taking on shuffling zombies in creepy locations. We don't really like to talk about the melee-centric campaign though. Despite being able to finally move while shooting, the controls still feel incredibly dated and sluggish. But again, it's £3.85.

Last of Us: Remastered gets best price yet £17.99

The latest PSN sale has The Last of Us: Remastered on PS4 for just £17.99, or only £19.99 if you don't have PS+. That's an awesome deal as it's at least £25 in the shops. Don't forget to download this month's Instant Game Collection too.

With Remastered, you're getting the slickest visuals and a higher framerate than on PS3 and the Left Behind DLC. In fact, if you bought the original PS3 game and the DLC today, you'd be paying a lot more than £17.99, so this price is even sweeter.

Thanks to Jon.

BatFlash BatSale! Batman: Arkham Origins £3.85 on Xbox 360

Batman: Arkham Origins is only £3.85 on Xbox 360 for the next 12 hours!

While we didn't feel it was quite up to the standards of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City, Origins certainly isn't a bad game and its story is highly enjoyable. For the price, it's definitely worth a punt especially since the technical problems at launch have been shored up. Thanks again, FantasyDeals!

Mad Max will launch in September, last-gen versions cancelled | Pre-order for just £19.99 on PC

Mad Max has been officially dated for 4th September on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, which is great news for the long-awaited yet oddly absent tie-in. Unfortunately, it appears that the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions have been "left by the wayside" to focus on the shiner editions, which is actually fine by us since cross-genertional development can lead to plenty of compromises.

If you're interested, you get a Mad Max pre-order for just £19.99 on PC, which is likely to be one of the best deals around over the next few months.

Why not check out our Mad Max preview?

The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds price is still crashing, now just £19.00

The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds is less than just £19.00 on 3DS. Thanks robgeorge87!

You take the Hyrule and I'll take the Lorule. Link, however, can take both in The Legend Of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, which allows our hero to shift between the two alternate dimensions during the course of the adventure. It's an utterly fantastic game tthat has, for one reason or another, been experiencing a massive price crash lately even though Nintendo games usually hold their value.

A Link Between Worlds, conversely, is now £19.00 and a smart bargain too.

Decisions, decisions. Bayonetta is amazing, Bayonetta 2 is stupendous and Metroid: Other M is... fun. Even if its script is atrocious. Many thanks again, Buzz!

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Review | The Best Game I've Ever Hated

I love Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, even if I occasionally fantasize about ripping open my special edition New 3DS XL, yanking out the MicroSD card and smashing it to pieces with the business end of a claw hammer.

It's a weird relationship, I freely admit, which I share with the rest of the series too. As always Monster Hunter is a magnificent beast, a massive freeform hunting experience in which we track down hulking terrors, scandalise them with weaponised bagpipes (if you so choose, I'm a creature of habit) and make stylish shoes from their skulls. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate expands and improves on every aspect imaginable, yet clings to a few awkward design decisions that seem purposefully implemented to drive players insane with pure unmitigated hatred.

What makes Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate a superb game, however, is that I can understand why these decisions were made and how they ultimately make for an utterly sensational experience overall... even when I'm screaming at the screen.

Ryse: Son of Rome is well worth a punt at £11.91

Ryse: Son of Rome is well worth a punt at £11.91

If Xbox One exclusive Ryse: Son of Rome has been on your radar for a while, maybe this £11.91 offer is right for you. This offer also saves you abut £10. Game is listed as a 'as new' and 'ex-rental'. Nope, I'm not sure how those two can co-exist either. It's also worth noting that the seller Boomerang allegedly had their customers' details hacked in January, but the word is that they've fixed their security issues since.

Thankfully, this didn't end up being the awful Kinect game it started as. Sure it's a bit repetitive, but as far as meaty and satisfying combat goes, this is a lot of fun. Just don't try and rush through it too quickly if you don't want the action to wear thin. Even a year after launch, this is still one of the best looking games on the Xbox One.

Thanks to joetootell.

Sunset Overdrive driven under £25 on Xbox One

Sunset Overdrive driven under £25 on Xbox One

Sunset Overdrive on Xbox One is currently £24.69 on PC.

It's not the lowest price we've seen for Sunset Overdrive, but this offer for a download code from CDKeys is currently the cheapest deal around. Make sure to use the 5% off Facebook voucher code by using the widget at the top of the store page. This anarchic and angry game brings "infectious energy, breathtaking traversal, silly weapons" and a "violently colourful playground" to Xbox One, and do so in style. You'll get the Day One edition to boot with extra DLC.

Also, see what I did with the title? Driven under? Oh come on, I thought it was funny.

BuzzDuraband reminds us that the Sunset Overdrive Nordic physical copy is still £24.95 at Coolshop. The game is in English, but resale value is questionable due to the Nordic packaging. Still well worth considering, though, especially if you tend to lend or swap your games out.

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate less than £25 on 3DS

Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate now just £24.16 on 3DS.

Use Rakuten voucher code MARGIFT5.

This is a great price for an utterly superb game. Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate deserves respect, building on every aspect of the franchise by adding more freedom, detail, verticality and personality, which is a bargain for under £25. Thanks again, FantasyDeals!

However, you might well hate Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate. I certainly do from time to time. Occasionally I have wild fantasies about snapping the cartridge in half due to its stern difficulty and odd design quirks. But I'm very close to reviewing it now... and spoiler alert: it's getting a perfect score.

Base are running an incredibly cheap Bayonetta 2 deal.

Get what critics widely hail as the "best game of 2014," ourselves included, for only £24.49 on Wii U by using Rakuten voucher code MARGIFT5. This isn't the special edition containing the original Bayonetta, but it is under the magic £25 and thus a bargain for the best action game in years. Utterly essential.

Thanks Turkey!

With just over a week to go before its release, this is an absolute bargain of a pre-order price for Zombie Army Trilogy. By using the the voucher code MARGIFT5 it brings the console versions down to the lowest price we've seen. I rather enjoyed my recent hands-on session with ZAT, and called it an "essential purchase for co-op fans" with good reason. If you're looking for a game that promotes co-operative play whilst being competitive, I suggest you give it a whirl. Thanks to pauladam3954 @ HUKD!

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition only £14.86 on PS4

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition only £14.86 on PS4

Missed the £14.86 PS4 deal for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition a few days ago? Not to worry, the same price is back today, albeit at a different retailer. This is also one of the better new-gen re-releases out there and your eyes will thank you for the incredible scenes.

I'd heavily recommend Crystal Dynamics' excellent reboot of the 90s series. This is a gorgeous game from start to finish and the huge explorable island is the best game world we've ever taken Lara through. In addition to the improved graphics, you can also use the PS4's camera or headset mic to swap weapons via voice commands. It's rather telling of the action genre's rough year in 2014 that this re-release was a podium placer for my action title of the year. Again. Here's my Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition Review.

Watch Dogs only £12 on PS4

For all our mixed feelings about Watch Dogs, we can't deny it's worth a look. And at £12 for a pre-owned PS4 copy, you could have a lot of fun.

For the length of Watch Dogs' story, the unique hacking opportunities will keep you hooked, as there’s nothing else quite like it out there. But outside of the hacking, police chases go on too long, side-missions feel repetitive, the audio diaries or home hacks aren’t that interesting and never try to form a bigger picture of the story a la Assassin’s Creed’s extras. It’s a shame, as the game undoubtedly breaks new ground with the hacking opportunities both behind the wheel or when sneaking around on foot. Much like the first Assassin’s Creed, the game has struggled with its own hype, but as history shows, Ubisoft are more than capable of turning this into an essential series if they can make the world and the gameplay around the hacking more interesting too.

Thanks to swyatt360.

Samurai Warriors 4 only £14.99 on PS4

Samurai Warriors 4 has never been cheaper than £14.99 on PS4.

Much like the Dynasty Warriors series, the action's very repetitive as you mow down continuous waves of enemies. But in short bursts, it's undeniably fun if very senseless. The perfect hangover game if you will.

Thanks to uwantsum.

There's no excuse to not own Uncharted 3: GOTY Edition for £5.86

Pick up Uncharted 3: Game of the Year Edition for just £5.86. Go on, it'd be rude not to.

Naughty Dog's Uncharted series is one of the best brands seen on the PS3 and their last game packed in more thrills than two summers of cinema blockbusters. The Game of the Year edition includes the paid DLC for multiplayer and co-op stages, both of which are way more fun than they ought to be considering the series is mainly known for its excellent single-player campaigns. Great action, plot, visuals and characters make this an essential package for any gamer. Thanks, Turkey!

The Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask has dropped another quid since yesterday, and it's a game that's well worth experiencing whether you're a Zelda neophyte or series veteran. For my money, Majora's Mask is a richer and more interesting game than Ocarina -- and though I'm not going to get on any Christmas card lists for saying this, it has certainly aged much better than its predecessor too.
