Shadow of Mordor available from £16.99 on PS4/XO

If you want a game that actually features a next-gen idea, then grab a copy of Shadow of Mordor for just £16.99 on PS4, saving you a few quid over the other sites. The Xbox One version is available for £17.99.

We can't get enough of Monolith's Shadow of Mordor here at Dealspwn and we thoroughly recommend you dust off your Uruk hunting skills to get a taste too. Turns out the Nemesis system has managed to back up its bold 'next-gen only' ambitions with a neat set of mechanics that sees enemies remember you and you can even brainwash them into fighting for you as you infiltrate the highest ranks of Sauron's army. There's an excellent set of skills available to take advantage of an enemy's weaknesses too to create unique experiences throughout. It also walked away with our Game of the Year award.

Here's the best PS4/XO Metal Gear Solid V price on the net

The gushing reviews are coming thick and fast now for Kojima's grand farewell to the Metal Gear series and we've just unearthed a voucher code that produces the cheapest price for a MGSV Day One Edition preorder on the net.

Jon managed to get his hands on the game recently for a lengthy preview session. Find out what he thought about the game with his two reports below:

Grand Theft Auto V on PS4 from £32.29

Fancy cutting the price of GTA V on PS4 down to £34.48 for the cheapest price on the web? Be sure to take advantage of the discount code below then. GTA V has been out for a while now and the price is seriously stubborn, but this is one of the few prices that's been worth promoting in recent months. If you don't mind going preowned, you can get it for £32.29.

This new-gen version of GTA features improved graphics, a new first-person view and tonnes more extra features that make it one of the better remasters out there. It's good to hear that online heists have finally made their way to the game too!

Tomb Raider is essential at £10.68 on PS4

£10.68 is a fantastic deal for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition. This is also one of the better new-gen re-releases out there and your eyes will thank you for the incredible scenes. Xbox gamers can get the game for free next month.

I'd heavily recommend Crystal Dynamics' excellent reboot of the 90s series which has recently gone on to become the most successful Tomb Raider game in Lara's history. 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.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 Review - Riot Control, Japan Style

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 Review - Riot Control, Japan Style

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 is all about smashing through big crowds. No matter which character you're controlling, you're essentially a god, eternally smashing through thousands of weakling enemies per stage with an extraordinary set of physical skills. It's gaming in its purest form of empowerment. And it's enormously fun.

There's a problem though, and it's one familiar to anyone that's played a Dynasty Warriors game or one of the earlier One Piece titles - there's really not much else to it. But in the right sized doses, this could find a place in your heart.

One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 Review - Riot Control, Japan Style

One Piece is based on an anime series and the story seems to be a rough highlights reel, meaning it'll make zero sense to anyone that hasn't watched it (severe déjà vu if you played the first game on PS3 too). Levels and their plots don't seen connected, it's just an endless barrage of waffle stuffed with overlong cutscenes and comic book (well, manga) picture dialogue scenes. The writing is painfully clichéd and riddled with as many children's anime tropes as you can care to name.

The Order: 1886 gets one of its cheapest prices yet

The Order: 1886 was admittedly a letdown considering the hype, but at least that's meant some heavy discounting since release. You should be able to get most of your money back on eBay if you want to get rid afterwards. My mission to find the game for £18.86 seems to have failed again, but I was close with this £17.57 deal, which is one of the best prices I've seen for a new copy.

The Order: 1886 is only about five hours long and makes you watch it rather than play it half the time. But I'd still recommend giving it a shot at some point, if the price is right for you. It's incredibly good-looking throughout and the shootouts are actually a lot of fun. Read my The Order: 1886 review for more on the game and take a look at my Order: 1886 survival tips or maybe even my other article, 12 ways The Order: 1886 could match the hype with a sequel.

No excuses, get MGS: Revengeance for £3.79 on X360

No excuses, get MGS: Revengeance for £3.79 on X360

That's right, this excellent slice and dice title you forgot to buy a few years ago is now only £3.79 on Xbox 360. Enjoy!

Platinum Games really rescued this one when they took over development. While stealth is sometimes an option, Rising is much more fun when played with the pedal to the metal. One minute you slicing up troops with meticulous precision, then you're running up the sides of missiles in mid air, or you're taking on three Metal Gears at once. This is not a subtle game. Put it in your face now.

Thanks to Lennier.

Mad Max trailer paints a grim world. Clean it up for £30.99 on PS4

Just a month to go now before Mad Max makes his long awaited debut on the PS4. We've seen plenty of trailers paint an enticing mix of Just Cause meets Rage (aka blowing up shit in the desert), but this one dials down the boomage (a little anyways) in favour of showing off more of the game's characters.

Mad Max is in good company it would seem as everyone seems a little bit unhinged and disfigured by violence. Happy fun times may not be around the corner, but it looks like he's the man for the job of ensuring there are less War Boys ruining what's left of the world. Because, well, reasons. Revenge and all that we imagine.

Bayonetta 2 is a Wii U classic and only £18.72 or £21.99 for Special Edition

Bayonetta 2 is taking a while to come down, but this £18.72 deal is the lowest I've seen it in a while as the game makes a rare sub-£20 appearance. Better yet, why not pick up the Special Edition (including the first game) for a few quid more at £21.99.

Bayonetta 2 is considered to be the best melee action title in years, probably the best since well, the first Bayonetta. So if you're a new Wii U owner, this should probably be your first stop. Sure the story's pants and Bayonetta looks way too much like Sarah Palin, but the combotastic gameplay is amongst the best the genre's seen.

God of War III: Remastered Review - Excellent/Pointless

God of War III is still an excellent title in the action genre pantheon. Having played through the HD makeovers of the original two games earlier this year, I was well placed to get stuck into God of War III again and it's aged wonderfully over the last five years.

If you enjoyed God of War 1 and 2 on PS2, but found yourself picking up an Xbox 360 over a PS3 last-gen (thus missing out on God of War III), you'll certainly want to take a look at this remastered edition if you now own a PS4. This is a grand finale to the main trilogy that any action fan deserves to experience and there are certainly cases to be made that GoWIII is the best entry to the series.

God of War III: Remastered Review - Excellent/Pointless

For anyone with a PS3 who didn't get around to playing the game, you too may want to consider this polished version at some point. Owners of the original will want to listen up now too. As you may have gathered by this review's title, there really isn't much here to encourage a second purchase.

Batman: Arkham Knight only £32.85 on PS4/XO

Batman: Arkham Knight is a hot contender for Game of the Year. It's best played on PS4 or Xbox One, rather than the dodgy PC port, so take a look at these £32.85 deals that are comfortably the best prices around. These copies also come with the Harley Quinn DLC. This is the best price seen so far, aside from a brief glitch on Amazon, where many orders were cancelled by the retailer anyway.

Is it any good? Well, here's a short version of my review"Rocksteady and Batman is a combination we'll sorely miss. Their trilogy ends on a high though, with a refinement of their excellent Freeflow combat and Predator modes. The Batmobile is a somewhat mixed experience, but its heart is in the right place. Our much-awaited tour of the city of Gotham was a gorgeous sight to behold and an unforgettable goodbye."

Enslaved is an overlooked classic. Don't miss it for £2.99

Enslaved: Odyssey to the West in on offer right now in the current Deals with Gold sale for Xbox gamers for £2.99. Hell, if you're Gold sub has lapsed, it's only £3.95 compared to over £10 for a disc version.

I'd like to think that The Last of Us owes some of it's visual design to Ninja Theory's Enslaved, as the game is rocking a very similar aesthetic where nature has reclaimed urban landscapes. There are slight similarities in the story too as you're tasked with protecting an AI partner as you journey together through dangerous wastelands. The game includes melee brawling, stealth and platforming mechanics, with a bit of hoverboarding thrown in for good measure. It's the beautiful visuals and stunning story that really cement the game's status though. Andy Serkis plays the lead and delivers his best gaming performance since the delightfully evil King Bohan in Heavenly Sword. Don't miss out, you won't regret it.
