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.

This £33.59 Metal Gear Solid V preorder could be the one

Preorders are a tricky business. But with huge triple-A releases, here at Dealspwn, we like to think we know a belting deal when we see one. We'd be very shocked to see any PS4 and Xbox One preorders for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain go lower than this £33.59 deal. Use the codes below (enter them separately) to get this price. Act fast, as the site could remove the code stacking at any time if it's a mistake.

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 and check out this 30-minute gameplay demo too.

Shadow of Mordor available from £17.99 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 £17.99 on PS4, saving you a few quid over the other sites. Xbox One copies are available for about £2 more.

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.

Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate is £3.95 delivered on 3DS

This is a great price for Batman's 3DS tie-in, which is no great shakes in the performance department, but might make a decent gift for a BatFan. To be honest, though, it's probably just worth getting anyway for £3.95 delivered! It's so cheap that you could buy a set of them as coasters if you wanted to.

Sleeping Dogs on Xbox One only £9.72

Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition is incredibly tempting at £9.72 delivered for a 'like new' copy on Xbox One.

Wei-Shen’s undercover exploits in Hong Kong was an absolute blast first time around and ensured the new IP was a genuine contender in a genre dominated by GTA and Saints Row. The graphical upgrade isn’t huge, but at least there’s the bundled DLC to look forwards to, which includes the expansion packs. If the idea of running round Hong Kong as an undercover cop infiltrating gangs sound like fun, that's because it really is. Wei Shen kicks some serious ass and isn't afraid to bend the rules to get what he wants. We say bend the rules, we actually mean hack them into kibble with a meat cleaver.

Batman: Arkham Knight Review | A Knight to Remember

This is the end folks. Rocksteady's last Batman game. As we saw with Warner Montréal's Arkham Origins, you can't just ask another studio to copy the formula and come up with the goods. Wipe away those tears though and step into the world of Batman: Arkham Knight.

This final adventure sees Batman finally playing on home turf in the expansive Gotham City. A dream come true for gamers, but the Scarecrow wants to make it everyone's worst nightmare. He's been cooking up a small ocean of his trademark fear toxin to make a whole city lose its mind and tear itself apart.

Rather politely, because he only really wants to break Batman, he gave the citizens time to evacuate. All that remains on the streets of Gotham is Batman, a few allies, the cops and any surviving members of the Rogues Gallery and their legions of goons. Oh, and some chap called the Arkham Knight who has an army of mercs, hundreds of tanks and a personal burning desire to hunt down the Bat.

Batman: Arkham Knight Review | A Knight to Remember

While we're sure Batman would be arrogant enough to think he could punch a hole through them all (and to be fair, he might), he's lucky enough for Lucius Fox to have finally entrusted him with the keys to the Batmobile. I've already gone into extensive detail about my opening impressions of the Batmobile in this feature article, but I'll give you a quick updated rundown.

Remember Me is worth remembering for just £2.95 on PC

Remember Me has fallen to an astonishing £2.95 on PC without even needing a voucher code!

I recently played through Remember Me and found a lot to enjoy. Dontnod's take on a futuristic Paris is jaw-droppingly gorgeous and is what would happen if the worlds of Mirror's Edge and Blade Runner collided. The combat is meaty and the combo editor provides different power ups to suit your needs. You'll have fun remixing memory sequences too in order to influence people into believing a different series of events occurred.  Overall, a very clever game that I feel shouldn't be passed by.

Take a look at my recent feature, Remember Me - A memory worth saving.

J-Stars Victory VS+ is the ultimate anime and manga crossover.

Where else can Shonen Jump royalty fight with or against each other in pitched combat? Where else can Monkey D. Luffy gomu gomu no bazooka Ichigo Kurosaki through a brick wall while Gintoki Sataka drives his moped straight into Vegeta? Where else can Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo and Koro-sensei gang up against Boa Hancock as Kenshiro winds up his Hundred Crack Fist?

Nowhere. J-Stars Victory VS+ is a real treat for Shonen Jump fans featuring dozens of characters both famous and obscure, but just as importantly, it's a fun and technically accomplished brawler too.

J-Stars Victory VS+ Review | The Ultimate Anime Crossover

No matter what mode you play, and we'll get to that later, J-Stars Victory VS+ is based around madcap 2-on-2 battles in deliciously destructible 3D arenas.

You'll assemble a 2-man team from a giddying roster of manga greats, including fighters from One Piece (my personal favourite), Naruto Shippuden, Bleach, Hunter X Hunter, Assassination Classroom, Fist Of The North Star, Dragon Ball, Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo, Chinyūki -Tarō to Yukai na Nakama-tachi, Dr. Slump, JoJo's Bizarre Adventure, Saint Seiya, Medaka Box, Toriko and loads more besides. Each team also gets to pick a support character that acts as a powerful special attack with a lengthy cooldown.

Heavenly Sword is a must-buy at £3.98

Check out a unsung PS3 classic from just £3.98 for a preowned copy including delivery.

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.

Thanks to Kenmarinaris.

Metal Gear Solid PS4/XO £34.85 offer expires today

Preorders are a tricky business to gauge the best deal. But with huge triple-A releases, here at Dealspwn, we like to think we know a belting deal when we see one. We'd be very shocked to see any PS4 and Xbox One preorders for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain go as low as this £34.85 offer. This is £4 cheaper than the next best deal and £6 less than the one after that.

This offer expires today, so this could be your last chance for this price, which I believe is the best we'll see without a voucher code promotion. Our senior editor 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:

Watch Dogs survives the hype at £7.99 on PS4 or £9.99 on XO

For all our mixed feelings about Watch Dogs, we can't deny it's worth a look. And at £7.99 for a pre-owned PS4 copy or even at £9.99 for an 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.
