Diablo III: Reaper Of Souls pre-order| GMG | £22.99 (save £2 vs Gamestop)
Diablo III's first major expansion is now exactly a month from release, adding a new campaign and introducing a terrifying new enemy in the form of fallen angel Malthael. Unlike the fairly useless Tyrael (who transformed from an epic sword-wielding legend into a... bald guy), the Angel Of Death is at the height of his powers, and leads a horrific crusade to steal the Black Soulstone for himself. With new enemies, classes and environments to get to grips with, there should be a decent slab of game here, and Green Man Gaming are making with the savings. Note that you'll need the base game to play - and that the auction houses are set to close in a matter of weeks.

Call Of Duty is no longer a two-horse race. After assisting Infinity Ward and Treyarch from behind the scenes for years, Sledgehammer Games are finally getting their chance to prove their mettle, and will be fully responsible for developing this year's Call Of Duty.
It's high time that the franchise received some fresh blood, and hopefully Sledgehammer might be able inject new life into the series - an opportunity that Ghosts never managed to capitalise on.
Mind you, a renewed "focus on DLC and micro DLC" might raise a few eyebrows. Click below, crank up the Peter Gabriel and let's take a closer look at how they can accomplish their new mission... so long as they're brave enough to do so.Click here to read more...
The original Modern Warfare became our official Game Of The Generation, appearing on all of our blind tallies. As the shock wore off, we gradually realised that democracy hadn't failed us as badly as we thought. Modern Warfare was utterly superb, both in terms of its grounded singleplayer campaign, seminal set pieces and multiplayer that set the trend for years to come. It's a ruddy masterpiece, and you can grab a copy (for 'All Ghillied Up,' basically) for £3.49 on GetGames. It's SteamPlay, so will work on both Mac or PC.

Deadpool is neither big nor clever, but it is utterly hilarious and anarchic in ways you'll rarely see from a videogame. As such it was a decent rental but a big ask at full price... so this £6 price seems about right.
Call Of Duty: Ghosts isn't as forward-thinking as we'd have liked (especially in terms of its nonsensical campaign, which Black Ops II somewhat puts to shame), but there's no denying that its mental multiplayer is still great fun. SimplyCDKeys will email you a PC Steam key for a shade under £20, which is a decent saving if you're looking to get involved. Thanks to imdurc @ HUKD!
Well it looks the the Xbone and PS4's release is finally have an affect on the last-gen software sales, as as the price for the latest Call of Duty game is down to quite the bargain. It will save you around £9 over the cheapest offer elsewhere, and also comes with the Freefall map for MP modes.
While the multiplayer modes are limited in number, and the social features are lacking as well, it's the same COD-like experience with Ghosts. Basically, if you're looking for some no-nonsense shooter fun (now with added dog) you'll probably find enjoyment with Infinity Ward's latest. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!
We issued our official verdict on Infinity Ward's latest shooter yesterday, and the general consensus is that the Extinction mode is the highlight of Call Of Duty: Ghosts, so we've decided to give it the Dealspwn Playthrough treatment to show you what it's all about. In today's episode, Carl provides commentary as we watch him destroy alien hives with a massive drill, before giving his thoughts on of the progression system whilst fending off wave upon wave of dog-like aliens, all of which are trying to eat his face. See it all after the jump.Click here to read more...

Developers: Infinity Ward
Call Of Duty is the kitchen sink of the Christmas shooters. It's all things to all gamers - bombastic singleplayer, robust co-op and manic multiplayer action - something for everyone in a single convenient package.
Every year we hear the same old backlash, the tiresome accusations of stagnation and laziness, but every year I've upgraded anyway and recommended that you do the same. Whether we're seeing Captain Price's moustache chronicles through to completion, enjoying new tweaks to the multiplayer formula or revelling in Treyarch's anarchic attempts to subvert the experience, there's always been a reason to ride shotgun on Activision's bandwagon.
What was it again?
For all we know Call Of Duty: Ghosts might feel like a real step forward for the franchise on PS4 and Xbox One, while the PC version seems to be the definitive edition in terms of visuals and features. But if you're sticking with PS3 or Xbox 360 and already own Black Ops II, Infinity Ward's latest effort might feel like less of an upgrade and more like filler material. In fact, the current-gen console version feels so noticeably pared-back that I'm compelled to review it as a standalone product.Click here to read more...
Diablo III: Reaper Of Souls is set to throw us into battle against the fallen angel Malthael and his horrific twisted army, which contains all manner of disturbing mobs. You can mug up on them thanks to a new Battle.net blog post, which acts as a bestiary of sorts, containing both pictures and handy descriptions of the Death Maidens, Ghastly Seraphs, War Beasts and more.
Bungie are adamant that they're not working on a PC version of Destiny, even though numerous players would like one, since it would involve stretching their finite development resources even further.Click here to read more...
Call Of Duty: Ghosts is out this week, and Activision's hype campaign is gearing up for one last big push. Their bombastic new live-action trailer makes for reasonably entertaining viewing, if telling us practically nothing useful about the game save that there are guns and a dog.
Megan Fox randomly shows up for no discernible reason, though, so there's that. Ghosts launches on November 5th - tomorrow - on PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Next-gen versions will release alongside their respective consoles.
That's what this trailer for the Free Fall pre-order DLC incentive seems to be shouting, as Activision try to muscle in on Battlefield 4's key multiplayer feature, massively changing environments in multiplayer maps. To be fair, Call of Duty: Ghosts' new map looks like a hell of a lot of fun too.
Infinity Ward's Mark Rubin, is pretty excited about the new map: "It [the new map] introduces our new mechanic, dynamic maps - this idea of bringing that sort of cinematic single player experience to multiplayer. You're playing in a building that is falling over and is wedged between two other buildings. The floor you're on is actually the glass windows from the side of the building so you see this world in a very topsy-turvy sense as it's plummeting down to the streets below."
The pre-order map will be available from multiple outlets in the US. European console gamers face a one-store exclusive policy in each territory though, with Game being the only option for UK gamers. Tease yourself with a trailer after the break and decide if you want to put your money with the big purple one.Click here to see the Free Fall trailer.
Destiny is headed to PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One next year, but PlayStation Access are keen to make the most of the nebulous special arrangement between Bungie and Sony. Their new footage illustrates a range of nifty features including legendary weapons, vehicle customisation and some of the social features we can expect from the anticipated trans-generation shooter.

Did you know that 32.3 quadrillion bullets have been fired in Call Of Duty multiplayer matches since the first Modern Warfare?

Following some extensive leaks and a soupçon of teasing, Activision has officially confirmed that Call Of Duty: Ghosts will include a 1-4 player cooperative mode wherein players fight off hordes of ravening aliens. See it in action by way of this brand new trailer.
Also, can we please stop ripping off the Inception soundtrack now, videogame marketing departments? It's getting a little embarrassing now.

Not to be outdone by Battlefield 4's explosion-heavy TV spot, Call Of Duty: Ghosts has brought a trailer of its own to the party. It's a singleplayer hype piece, so expect loads of explosions, fast cuts, loads more explosions, devastatingly intelligent fish and Riley being adorable set to a rap soundtrack.
Which trailer do you prefer? Which game will you buy? Am I resorting to cheap tactics to drum up discussion on a fairly slow news day? To the comments, folks.Click here to read more...
