Infamous: First Light is electrifying at £4.99 on PS4

All done with Infamous: Second Son? Well, if you enjoyed the neon powers, you should check out the First Light DLC which delves into Fetch's backstory in and around Seattle. You don't even need the original game to play this standalone DLC. Hell, you could even play this first and then buy the main game if you've not played it yet. A guaranteed blast whichever way you approach it.

Assassin's Creed: Rogue only £7. Don't miss out

All was not lost for the Assassin's Creed brand last year. Ubisoft Sofia provided an excellent sequel to Black Flag and £7 is a very reasonable price for the PS3 version.

Compared to Unity, this is a masterpiece The combat's not broken, there's a rich and varied world to explore and yes, ruddy big pirate ships are back in. If you had fun with Captain Kenway, you should snap this one right up. Check out my Sunday Seven which sings the game's praises compared to Unity.

Thanks to dwor.

Just Cause 3 on PS4 only £32.99

Just Cause 3: Day One Edition is a few quid cheaper at SG than rival sites. The PS4 version hasn't suffered from as many loading/frame-rate issues as the XO version, but it's still far from perfect. Hopefully this week's patch will add a bit of Xmas polish.

I've reviewed the XO version of Just Cause 3, here's my short version: Long load times, sluggish frame-rate and awful shooting would usually be the end of an action game. Just Cause 3 just about gets away with it though thanks to the hugely open approach to carnage with the likes of grappling hooks, parachutes, wingsuits, rocket launchers, infinite C4, tanks, choppers and the freedom to do whatever you want with them.

Uncharted Collection down to £24.85

This is the best price I've seen for a physical copy of Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection on PS4.

Here's an excerpt from my review: An essential purchase for Uncharted newbies and the graphical upgrade makes it hard to resist for series fans too. Naughty Dog's trilogy shames the competition with exceptionally detailed levels, blockbuster action scenes and a lovable cast that will be sorely missed when the series wraps up with Uncharted 4 next year.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse only £22.99 on PS4/XO

This deal for Dragon Ball Xenoverse is the cheapest we've seen for the new-gen versions. Most outlets are charging closer to £30 today.

Jon called Dragon Ball Xenoverse, "A Brave Next Step For Anime Videogames" in his review, praising the combat, the deep story and the wealth of content available. The bar has been raised for anime tie-ins. No pressure, Attack on Titan.

Just Cause 3 Review - Appetite for Destruction

We've had more than our fair share of open world sandboxes on the new-gen consoles, but the wait for Just Cause 3 has been a rather long one. After all, nobody quite does explosions like Rico Rodriguez.

Just Cause 3 does so many fun things right, but the number of basic elements that it utterly fails at is truly shocking. My first few hours with the game were not good at all actually. However, as I got used to the rough edges, the fun side of the game eventually prevailed and I found myself reluctantly being teased into having a good time.

The story is mere window dressing to the carnage. Rico is once again tasked with liberating a sun-kissed set of islands from a tyrannical dictator. Rico isn't so much of a character as much as a walking accent. But at least he's not an asshole (hello, Mad Max).

Just Cause 3 Review - Appetite for Destruction

What's the best way to liberate a nation? By blowing up anything with red paint on it apparently. Small towns or settlements are packed with destructible items like propaganda speakers, dictator statues, billboards, fuel depots, generators and the like. Destroy them all and that's another location ticked off the map. With over 100 areas to liberate, you're not going home any time soon. You'll also need to reach various liberation milestones to unlock story missions, so you may as well get stuck into any town you glide past.

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition only £10 on PS4/XO

£10 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.

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.

Zelda: A Link Between Worlds only £13.85 on 3DS

Well, that's certainly the lowest price we've posted for this one.

This long-awaited sequel proved to be quite a hit with the critics, including our very own Chris Hyde who scored the game a rather delicious 9/10.  At first, Link's latest adventure looks to be a familiar 2D affair, but there are various degrees of depth on offer. For example, Link can now explore multiple horizontal layers, leaping upwards towards the screen to reach higher areas. He can also flatten himself on walls like a painting to walk around corners when platforms are absent.

DmC: Definitive Edition from £14.50 on PS4 / XO

If you've read our review, you'll know that DmC: Definitive Edition comes highly recommended. These deals are the best price to be found on the net by a few quid. With DmC and Resident Evil, Capcom has proved that their HD remasters are amongst the best in the business.

The frame-rate is slicker than ever and the optional turbo mode makes the game 20% faster. It's a challenge for those fingers, and this release is aiming to please the hardcore fans with a huge amount of extra difficulty settings. The last-gen DLC is included too including the Virgil's Downfall expansion and a new Bloody Palace mode for him. Capcom has recently said they're planning on doing even more HD remasters, fingers crossed they include some of these games.

Transformers: Devastation for under £20 on PS4/XO

With so much competition around at this time of year, Transformers: Devastation has seen some rapid discounting since release. Act fast and you could grab a copy for just £19.99 on PS4 or Xbox One. There are some Game-exclusive skins included too.

This is a far cry from the terrible direct movie tie-ins, especially as Platinum Games, the team behind Bayonetta, have developed it. The levels themselves are a little bland and the campaign only lasts about four hours, but the combat is certainly a lot of fun.

Rise of the Tomb Raider launch trailer + combat trailer

Here's a duo of new trailers for Rise of the Tomb Raider. The launch trailer doesn't have much new material as far as locations go, but there are some fresh character scenes with Lara's friend, Hannah, and the no-good leader of Trinity. If you're after some new footage, you'll be better off checking out the second part of the Woman Vs Wild series, where we see Lara engaging enemies with different combat styles. Oddly enough, there  seems to be a lot of Stealth kill XP awarded for using explosives. Hmmm. Not that we can't wait for the release in just 10 days time!

We've included the latest preorder deal too, although we've seen it cheaper in recent weeks.

God of War III: Remastered now at the price it should have been at launch

We've come a long way from that ridiculous initial RRP for God of War III: Remastered on the PS4. Does this latest price finally make it worth the money though, or do you think it's worth waiting that little bit longer?

Personally, I think this is the price offering the ideal value. In my review I said £15 was the price to wait for, and blasted the original £25-£30 price tag seeing as you're only getting one game in this remaster. At £13.85, the game itself is excellent and Kratos has never looked better. Take a look at my full God of War III: Remastered review for more information. By the way, you can still pick up God of War: Ascension on the PS3 for just £5.
