Shadow of Mordor only £16.99 on Xbox One

If you want a Xbox One game that actually features a next-gen idea, then grab a preowned copy of Shadow of Mordor for just £16.99, saving you £8 over a new one.

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. Check out our full review here.

Attack on Titan gameplay footage breaches the wall

Attack on Titan is one of the most popular new names in manga/anime right now and we're rather excited about the new game. But also a bit nervous as the complex action could be a tough test for the 3DS to handle. For those of you that haven't seen the anime (it's on UK Netflix, so get it sorted), it features humans taking on huge Titan enemies that keep breaching city walls to nom all the humans. Using your ODM (Omni-directional Mobility) Gear you use wired hooks to fly around a level in a manner not a million miles away from Spider-Man.

It's not clear how much control you'll have in the final game over movement, but it would seem that the critical strikes are QTE's with timed strikes required via timing circles indicating the best time to hit the button. If players are given manual control over movement, we hope the camera is up to the job, as anyone that has seen the show will attest, the Scout Titan killers move very quickly and change direction to dizzying effect. 4-player co-op will be included with online and local options, which sounds fantastic if we're honest and the game seems to be shaping up way better than we imagined.

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 only £4.44 on PC

Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2 is only £4.44 for a Steam download.

Lords of Shadow 2 turned out to be a bit of a letdown, with a drab modern day setting, ill-advised stealth sections and a lack of innovation, but we know you'll want to know how the saga ends. So be sure to at least pay a cheap price like this for it.

Godzilla gameplay trailer hits downtown

Want to see what Godzilla looks like on PS4? Then you're in the right place as we have a new gameplay trailer, showing off multiple monsters going at it from Godzilla's long movie history. You might not know it from the trailer, but this is a full-priced release coming to PS3 and PS4 in July. Call me skeptical, but if we questioned whether Evovle was worth £40, Godzilla is certainly facing a uphill struggle. That said, if this summer is anything like last year, we'll be desperate for any new game. There, and I thought I wasn't going to be able to say anything nice.

Stay tuned to Dealspwn.com as Jon went to a preview day at Bandai Namco recently and got his mitts on it.  Take a look at the trailer below and see the King of Monsters in action.

Ryse: Son of Rome is only £12.99

If Xbox One exclusive Ryse: Son of Rome has been on your radar for a while, maybe this £12.99 offer is right for you. This offer also saves you abut £10.

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.

Bayonetta 2 down to £22.80 on Wii U

Bayonetta 2 is taking forever to come down, but this £22.80 deal is a decent price, saving you a few quid over other sites.

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.

Heavenly Sword is an unsung classic on PS3 from £7.35

Check out a unsung PS3 classic from just £7.35 for a 'like new' copy. Or you could opt for a new version for £10.31

If you think Hellblade looks interesting, maybe it's time you checked out Ninja Theory's very similar Heavenly Sword. Heavenly Sword is still an incredibly slick hack n' slash title from the developers of DMC: Devil May Cry and Enslaved. I played through the game again recently and the graphics and performances from Andy Serkis and Anna Torv frequently left my jaw on the floor. Nariko was also rocking a neat counter system way before Rocksteady got their hands on the Batman license too. Go on, you can thank  me later.

Metal Gear Rising Reveangeance cut down to £4.93 on PC

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is now Raiden Dirty at £4.93 on PC.

When you're trying to bring high-speed brutal action into the Metal Gear Solid universe, there's only one developer to call. Platinum Games. The team behind Bayonetta and God Hand created a gory and outrageous masterpiece that sees you cutting foes into tiny pieces in slow motion, slicing Metal Gear Ray in half and running down skyscrapers in the freaking tutorial.

Zone of the Enders HD Collection only £4.95 on X360

With most sites selling Zone of the Enders HD Collection for a tenner, GC's £4.95 deal is a steal.

The Zone of the Enders series still stands as the pinnacle of mech-gaming around here and is essential at this price. Hideo Kojima's second most famous series has been begging for a sequel for years, but given the state of affairs between himself and Konami these days, this might be the end of the series. Don't let it fade into memory.

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is £3.75 on PC

Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris is a steal at the lowly price of £3.75 on PC. Download it today before the price shoots back up to the tenner mark.

Temple of Osiris is best enjoyed in four-player co-op, but is also a solid effort when played solo. The stages are slightly tweaked, depending on the number of players and features an enjoyable mix of twin-stick shooting, platforming and puzzling. Extra unlockables and perk modifiers make it worth looking for secrets and replaying stages. You're getting hours of fun for an awesome price here. Don't miss out.

You can also grab the season pass for just £1.75.

Tempted by The Order: 1886 for £19.99?

We have a couple of deals today for The Order: 1888. If you don't mind a Spanish box (but English game), you can get it for £19.99. We also have a deal for a regular version for just £27.99 too.

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.

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition is essential gaming for £9.49

£9.49 is a fantastic deal for Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and over £5 cheaper than a physical copy. 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 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.

Bayonetta 1 & 2 double pack on Wii U £29.99

This pack includes the original Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2 for just £29.99. This is £7 cheaper than the next best deal and only £2 more than buying Bayonetta 2 on its own.

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.

The Last of Us: Remastered is only £8.82 /

It's worth setting up a US PSN account to get this stunning discount. The Last of Us: Remastered is only £8.82 or around $13 for US buyers today and you're looking at around £30 for a physical copy. Here's our simple guide to setting up a US PSN account from the UK. Don't forget to use the facebook discount by clicking the link at the top of the seller's site.

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 hell of a lot more than ££8.82, so this price is even sweeter.

Thanks to xboxfan.

Batman: Arkham Origins only £5.95 on PS3/360

Need to get all caught up before Arkham Knight arrives? Well for £5.95 you can order a copy of Batman: Arkham Origins. £5.95 gets you a new 360 copy or a 'like new' PS3 one (still the best price around).

Warner Bros Montreal's effort was always going to struggle compared to Rocksteady's excellent Batman games, but Bat fans should still give Origins a go. Any disappointment is soothed by this incredible price too. Origins' main issues are easily-dropped combos and the odd countering delay, but the open world of Gotham on Christmas Eve is packed with activities and goons to smash up. Plus the snow is super pretty. Go on, it'll make Arkham Knight look even better in a few months.

Lollipop Chainsaw only £3.99 on PS3

Lollipop Chainsaw is now available at one of the cheapest prices we've ever seen on PS3. £3.99 will get you a preowned copy from Game today.

This is a great deal for Suda 51's rainbow-flavoured zombie slayer. On release, I didn't particularly rate the game, but at £3.99 you'll have some fun. The script includes some amusing lines and touching moments between Juliet and Nick. But some of the gross-for-effect humour is flat-out embarrassing. Combat lacks depth, but if you play the game in short bursts, you're less likely to notice. Juliet Starling is a fantastic character though and if we ever see a sequel we hope Suda-san will convince the action masters at Platinum to take over.

Watch Dogs is only £9.99 on PS4 and Xbox One

For all our mixed feelings about Watch Dogs, we can't deny it's worth a look. And at £9.99 for a pre-owned PS4 or Xbox One copy, you'll 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.

Have all the insane fun with Sunset Overdrive for £19.99

You can save £5 on Sunset Overdrive on Xbox One with this £19.99 deal.

Alternatively, if you'd like the Day One Edition, -with extra DLC- you can get it for just £22.85.

Jon highly rated Insomnia's Xbox One debut in his Sunset Overdrive reviewSunset Overdrive brings the fun. Though Insomniac's inexperience with open-world games leads to inconsistent mission design and a few oversights, its infectious energy, breathtaking traversal, silly weapons and violently colourful playground make for a brilliant way to blow off steam.
