Gauntlet: Slayer Edition out tomorrow on PS4

Rinsed every last bit of loot from Diablo III, PS4 gamers? Then you'll want to take a look at the return of a legend as Gauntlet makes its PS4 debut. Gauntlet: Slayer Edition launches tomorrow for £15.99 on PS4, giving you and three pals the chance to adventure through the new version of the recent PC remake.

The Slayer Edition comes with fresh abilities, extra character customisation and optimised visuals, which should see the game outshine the original PC release. The original Gauntlet's top-down multiplayer goblin basher was a huge influence on the action RPG genre and we've been waiting for this remake to hit consoles for a while now. Hungry for more? Check out the launch trailer below.

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition from £14.99 on consoles

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition has held its value incredibly well since release. But if you need to scratch that itch for the best action RPG on the market, here are your cheapest deals for Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition on consoles.

I'm 70 hours in and yet to get bored with Diablo III. It's the co-op that's really pulled me in, I can't think of a game that I've played more in couch co-op since Street of Rage 2 or Dragon's Crown. With controls perfectly mapped to the controller, this was well worth the wait on consoles and is regularly patched with updates and tweaks that make it worth coming back to time and time again.

Is Witcher 3 a GOTY contender? Find out for £15.95/

Usually, in the first few months after a Triple A game's release, you're stuck looking at prices awfully close to the RRP. Here at Dealspwn, we're obsessed with chipping those prices down, and today you can grab The Witcher III: Wild Hunt game key for just £15.95 or $25. To get a 5% discount, go to the retailer's Facebook page and click the link. You don't have to enter an email address, just enter any text and press enter for a code.

Don't forget to keep your eye out for all the free DLC and regular patch updates to improve the game. The game picked up one of our Editor's Choice awards in my review: "While the decidedly average combat and alarming number of technical gremlins are disappointing for a title that's been in development for so long, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt is still a must-buy title for genre fans. The Northern Kingdoms is vast and beautiful setting, packed with unique adventures and touching tales that you'll find away from the beats of the main story. A title to truly lose yourself in."

Bombshell gets new gameplay trailer. Looks terrible

Bombshell is the game that emerged from the legal minefield between 3D Realms/Interceptor and Duke Nukem' IP holders (and ruiners), Gearbox. Originally down as Duke Nukem: Mass Destruction, this top-down action RPG shooter has had a lead character swap and has been renamed Bombshell.

The game will release later this year on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Hopefully much later this year, as it's looking decidedly average at the moment. Think Diablo III meets Smash TV, but with none of the good bits. The proof is in the playing though and if you find yourself at QuakeCon next month you'll be able to try it for out. You never know, it could turn out to be fun.

The Witcher III: Wild Hunt Review | An unpolished classic?

A reliable sign you're playing an absorbing game is how it makes the time fly. I was constantly interrupted by my TV's two-hour auto-shutdown notification throughout my time with The Witcher III: Wild Hunt. Geralt's adventures will cut through the days and nights so fast it'll shock you.

The Witcher III marks the series' debut on PlayStation and as such will be played by many gamers unfamiliar with the past games. There's no getting around the fact that you're going to be at a loss just diving in, I'd seriously advise reading a few wiki summaries of past events and  brushing up on some of the main characters so you won't feel too left out.

A few hours into the game, you can replicate the important decisions Geralt may have made in The Witcher II via a series of questions. Again, I'd read a guide on what these choices actually mean, as the in-game conversation will mean nothing to new players. Here's the guide I used.

The Witcher III: Wild Hunt Review | An unpolished classic?

As you play through the game, character bios unlock and are updated throughout the adventure, which does help alleviate the crushing amounts of lore you're trying to catch up on. Don't be put off though; The Witcher III is all about new adventures, or more specifically, the ones you find naturally by exploring. There are extensive main quest missions, but the main meat of the game will be spent taking on hunting contracts or performing secondary quests for extra EXP or money.

Dragon's Crown - the best action RPG you've never played from £16.75

Towards the end of a console generation, it's all too easy for the odd classic to go by unnoticed by the masses as the shiny next-gen flash their wares. So, we'll forgive you if you missed out on Dragon's Crown first time around. We've dug out a few cheap deals as the price has come down recently.

Dragon's Crown is the sort of game you've been waiting for since the Mega Drive. A compelling side-scrolling fantasy beat em' up, that works in multiplayer or solo and can be played for hours on end thanks to the RPG components and never-ending loot. Be sure to check out our full review which goes into detail about the differences between the console and handheld versions.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is ace value at £9.59 on PS3

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is only £9.59 on PS3.

If you need a new action RPG in your life, then Dragon's Dogma certainly has the time if you do. Dark Arisen is the name given to the huge expansion pack for Dragon's Dogma, but this disc also includes the full original game. Nowadays, this Dark Arisen version is cheaper than the original game. we'd advise spending time leveling up and finishing the main game before entering the Dark Arisen side of the game as things get a bit Dark Soulsish (hard as nails).

Thanks to eloo.

Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix is fantastic value at £11.99

[UPDATE: It's now £1 cheaper at Wow HD - £11.99]

Save yourself a few quid with this deal for Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix for £12.99 on PS3 - possibly the best price I've seen. That's a lot of Disney/Square-Enix mashup for your money.

If you're yet to pick up Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix, you can pick it up for £10.99 at the same site.

Like the first collection, we’re getting the fancy pants versions of the games that were previously not seen on these shores. So you can look forward to Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix and the formerly PSP-only Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep Final Mix. A compilation of HD’d (yes, it is a word) cutscenes from the Nintendo DS title Kingdom Hearts Re:coded (not a word) has also been included to attempt to bring you up to date with the complex branching plotlines as the series has spread like wildfire across numerous consoles and handhelds. I’d be surprised if Kingdom Hearts III arrives this year, but even so, you better get cracking. Oh and Square, feel free to include Pixar stuff over Frozen, that snowman twerp is not joining my party.

Need The Witcher III today? Get it now for £22.79/ on PC

The The Witcher III: Wild Hunt has been doing very well with the critics. The sub-£20 deals we saw as preorders have long gone, but £22.79/$35 is still way better than other prices around the net. To get a 5% discount, go to the retailer's Facebook page and click the link. You don't have to enter an email address, just enter any text and press enter for a code.

By now, we would have loved to hell you how good The Witcher III is first-hand, but our review copy is making a rather convoluted journey towards us. From what we've gathered though, Geralt's latest adventure has a huge world to explore, with your choices directly affecting events in the game world, even during optional quests. Today better be the day Mr. Postman.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning only £4.99 on PC

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning provides a vast RPG experience and can't be ignored at £4.99.

Fancy a more action-heavy approach to your RPGs? Well take a look at the colourful world of Amalur. The setting lacks originality if you're familiar to the genre, but the combat more than makes up for it. The game is absolutely huge and it's well supported with DLC too if you need more questing. Check out Jon's review for a full rundown.

Witcher III: Day One Edition cheapest PS4 preorder only £37.18

The hype is keeping pre-order prices for The Witcher III: Wild Hunt very high indeed. With the next best deal sitting at £42 you'll need all the discount you can get. Thankfully, today's discount code knocks 15% off the price bringing it down to a more reasonable £37.18 on PS4 and Xbox One, the best deal we've seen for under £40.

Geralt's latest adventure is shaping up to be one of the most ambitious games we've seen for ages, with a huge world to explore. Your choices will directly affect events in the game world, even during optional quests. Developers, CD Projekt RED have said the game won't be stuffed with the usual A-B fetch quests either, which typically plague the genre. Dragon Age: Inquisition impressed, but this is the RPG experience we're hoping is really going to rip up the rule book.

Bloodborne Review | Hunt. Die. Learn. Grow.

Bloodborne Review | Hunt. Die. Learn. Grow.

Weeks after my first night in Yharnam, it's time for a verdict on my adventures in Bloodborne. Well, a number for the experience so far at least. Fresh tales about From Software's new title are appearing online every day. This is a game that nobody can really claim to have mastered yet. Secrets are still being unearthed, much of the lore has yet to be agreed and rumours whisper through the net about everything from werewolf modes to hidden boss fights.

One thing's for sure though, Sony has done very well for themselves by nailing Bloodborne down as a PS4 exclusive. As enjoyable as Infamous, DriveClub (eventually) and Killzone were, they never rode such a continuous wave of hype after release. Bloodborne's appeal won't be a surprise to fans of From Software's Demon's Souls or the Dark Souls series, but what is surprising, is that it's pulling in people who aren't fans of the Souls games. People like me.

After playing Demon's Souls, I stayed clear. Unresponsive combat and the relentlessly hardcore attitude to death just rubbed me all sorts of wrong. But ever since playing the Alpha and Beta versions of Bloodborne, I started to think that maybe it was time to have another crack at From Software's games, which had become much more than a cult game -something that hit home when I saw the diverse and incredibly long line of gamers waiting to play Dark Souls II at an Expo.

Bloodborne Review | Hunt. Die. Learn. Grow.

Bloodborne is still maddeningly difficult, but the most notable improvement for me is the aggressive combat. Heavy weapons and charged attacks aside, swings of your cleaver (if you choose to start with one) are quick and can be relied upon to attack your opponents when you want, rather than the sluggish eventual sword swinging that drove me insane in Demon's Souls. There are inconsistencies in how attacks interrupt enemy strikes though, which can be very frustrating when they take damage but continue to attack straight through your play.
