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.

Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII.

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.

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.

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition has held its value incredibly well since release and this is one of the better deals we've seen for a new copy as it saves you at least £6. don't forget to use the code to get £1 off too.

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.

Brendan's Bloodborne Hangover - A Dark Souls virgin's first night in Yharnam

As far as Dark Souls goes, you'll struggle to find anyone at Dealspwn that dislikes it more. But here I am, working my way through Bloodborne. From Software's latest title is essentially a spiritual successor to the incredibly tough Souls series. These are the joys of being the only full timer with a PS4 (until Jon bought one today!).

But screw it, I almost enjoyed the Alpha and Beta versions I played in recent months. So perhaps the tides were turning and I was going to start warming to the infamous brand of hardcore gaming that has built up such a large following since the early days of Demon's Souls. Incidentally, that game was the last one I played.

There are plenty of reviews and reports from seasoned players, but we thought we'd provide a perspective from a relative newcomer, as we imagine there are a few of you out there that didn't fancy (or flat out disliked) the Souls series, but are keen to see what all the fuss is over the PS4's biggest exclusive yet. So here I am, recovering the day after the oh so bloody night before. Here's how I earned my Bloodborne Hangover.

Brendan's Bloodborne Hangover - A Dark Souls virgin's first night in Yharnam

The first thing you'll do in Bloodborne is create a character. I didn't spend much time on this, as I figured I'd be covering them up with as much armour as possible the first chance I got. When selecting body build, I went for the slimmest option as it doesn't affect any stats. I figured the less of me there was to hit the better.

Always wanted to try Diablo III? It's only £5.99 on 360/PS3

Fancy trying out Diablo III for super cheap? Well, the PS3 and 360 versions are only £5.99 for a 'like new' copy.

While, we'd certainly recommend the Ultimate Evil Edition over this version, you're, looking at around £25 last-gen, or £35 on the newer consoles for that one. This deal is more for those of you who aren't sure if Diablo III is the sort of game you'd enjoy. £5.99 is a risk-free price, and you'll probably earn your money back if you resold it as this is half price compared to all other sites at the moment. Take a look at Jon's review of the console version for more information.

Bound by Flame could be worth a look at £14.70 on PS4

If you've been eyeing up Bound by Flame for a while, £13.96 is the cheapest price we've seen for it on PS4. Don't forget to use the discount code to knock it down to this price.

At full-price, this Dark Souls wannabe didn't review particularly well. But at this price we're much more inclined to take a look. Sure, it's a little rough around the edges and a little derivative, but for under £15, this will help pass some time for genre fans waiting for The Witcher III or a new Dark Souls experience.

Thanks to gooner and BuzzDuraband.

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen from £9.59 on PS3/360

Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is only £9.59 on PS3 or £10.49 on Xbox 360.

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).
