Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition only £23.99 on XO

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.

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition has unbeatable co-op for £29 on PS4/XO

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 £5.

I'm 70 hours in and yet to get bored with Diablo III on PS4. 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.

The Witcher III: Wild Hunt on £18.88 on PC

The hype is keeping pre-order prices for The Witcher III: Wild Hunt very high. Unless you're looking for a cheap PC key that is! You can now order one for just £18.88.

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.

Thanks to jaystan.

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

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.

Tales of Symphonia Chronicles & Tales of Graces f pack on PS3 - £14.99

This compilation bundle includes Tales of Symphonia Chronicles and Takes of Graces f for just £14.99. You'd usually expect to pay around £15 each for these, so I'd get on this fast!

This is a seriously good deal, with over 100 hours of excellent action-RPG gameplay from Japan. This is a perfect entry for newbies to the Tales of series and will surely get you hooked for the upcoming Tales of Zesteria. Be sure to check out Tales of Xillia if you like what you play here too. This collection will be released on March 27th.

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).

Dragon Quest Heroes is coming West, but are Square Enix just testing us?

Dragon Quest Heroes is coming West, but are Square Enix just testing us?

Rejoice, JRPG fans, because Dragon Quest Heroes has been confirmed for a Western release on PS4.

In the first action-RPG to bear the series' name, players must rise up against insurmountable odds, challenging swarms of enemies and conquering gigantic monsters designed by world-renowned artist Akira Toriyama. Interestingly, Omega Force (the team responsible for many Samurai Warriors titles) will also be helping out with development, bringing their expertise with hack & slash action to the party.

It's been years since a full-fat Dragon Quest title came West (heck, we've pretty much had to make do with DQIX: Sentinels Of Starry Skies on DS) and frankly we can't wait.

This is fantastic news. Obviously. But the more I think about it, the more I can't help but ask a couple of niggling questions. Why now? Why this game in particular: the first hack & slash title in the franchise rather than Dragon Quest XIII or X? Is this actually the game we want? The answer, perhaps, is that Square Enix are using it to test the waters -- and to test us in particular.

Cheapest price yet for Kingdom Hearts 2.5 Remix - £14.95

Save yourself a few quid with this deal for Kingdom Hearts 2.5 HD Remix for £14.95 on PS3 - the cheapest price yet. 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 at Base for £10.99.

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.

Diablo III from £31.68 on PS4/XO is worth every penny

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition has held its value incredibly well since release, but this  voucher code makes it the cheapest around on both formats by £3-£8. PS4 buyers can simply use the code to bring the price down to £31.69. XO buyers will have to add a cheap item (from the same seller) to their basket to take the initial price over £40 so they can use the £10 off a £40 purchase. Maybe filter the lowest prices of their DVDs and find something you fancy. The cheapest is an animated Batman movie at £2.09.

I'm 70 hours in and yet to get bored with Diablo III on PS4. It's the co-op that's really pulled me in though, and I can't think of a game that I've played more in couch co-op since Street of Rage 2. With controls perfectly mapped to the controller, this was well worth the wait on consoles.

Tales of Xillia is a Xilliant RPG for £14.99

£14.99 is arguably the cheapest price I've seen for Tales of Xillia. This deal is a fiver cheaper than the next best price too.

Tales of Xillia is an action-orientated JRPG with lots of magic-infused melee combat with a tactical edge as you team up with party-members for unique attacks. This is the perfect tonic to soothe the pain left by Square's fumbled FFXIII series. Check out my full review here.

Save £20 and grab Tales of Graces f for £10.99

Tales of Graces f is tremendous value for money at £10.99 and should keep you going for a while. With most sites still trying to sell the game for over £30, you can probably make your money back on eBay when you're done too.

The Tales of series has excelled on PS3, with a vibrant anime style and action-packed RPG gameplay making for a neat change of pace compared to the genre's usual turn-based battles. Have a look at Matt's review.

Diablo III is the PS4's best co-op title and it's only £25

UPDATE: It's also available for £20 on the Xbox One at Cex.

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition has held its value incredibly well since release, but this is the cheapest price I've sen for it yet. This is for a preowned copy, but with stores healthily spread around the country, you're easily covered if there are any issues.

I'm 70 hours in and yet to get bored with Diablo III on PS4. It's the co-op that's really pulled me in though, and I can't think of a game that I've played more in couch co-op since Street of Rage 2. With controls perfectly mapped to the controller, this was well worth the wait on consoles.

Kingdom Hearts 2.5 Remix's available for £19.98

This deal is £3 cheaper than the one I posted yesterday in my Next Week's Releases roundup. Retailers are supposed to be upgrading pre-orders to the Limited Edition (with pin badge) for free, but there's no mention of it here. If you want to make sure you get the badge though, Amazon are selling the Limited Edition for £24.

Like last year's 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.

Get Diablo 3 on PC for just £9.99 from CDKeys

Hot on the heels of Blizzard's sale, CDKeys have slashed the price of their listing for Diablo 3. By bringing it to the £10 mark, it undercuts the next cheapest deal by £6.

The improvements to the game since it's original release have made Diablo 3 a much more fun and rewarding experience. Admittedly, the better content (and class) are reserved for the Reaper of Souls expansion, but for the asking price here it's definitely worth a look.

Get Diablo 3: Ultimate Edition on PS4 / Xbox One for just £32.99 from Amazon

This isn't a part of the on-going Black Friday countdown flash deals, but this listing is one of the cheapest we've seen for the current-gen versions of Diablo 3. Overall, there's a saving of around £5 compared to the next best deal elsewhere for both consoles.

The transition from PC to console has been expertly done by Blizzard, as we discuss in our review. The fact it comes with all the content (and fixes) that have been produced since the original launch makes this version of Diablo 3 great value for money. More to the point, it's lots of fun - especially in local co-op. Thanks to  slento86 @ HUKD!
