Beyond Good & Evil may never see a sequel at this rate, but you certainly shouldn't let the original slip you by. At £1.69, you really should check it out.
You play as Jade, a young photojournalist keen to uncover a sinister government plot. Gameplay blends platforming, fighting, driving and some very rewarding stealth sections. There's an addictive photo mode too where you try to get a picture of every wildlife species in the game.
Beyond Good & Evil has been waiting for a sequel for what seems like forever now. Just in case it ever actually happens you'll want to be involved, so why not pick up the original game while it's on the cheap.

They don't make 'em like they used to.
Beyond Good & Evil is one of those games. Every time a group of jaded gamers discuss the state of our medium nowadays, the smart money is on Ubisoft's beloved cult classic being trotted out order to illustrate the lack of variety that we tend to see in the marketplace. Beyond Good & Evil was a sales flop when it released back in 2003 despite rave critical reviews, and Ubisoft rightly blamed themselves for their lack of marketing. Will this new HD re-release atone for their mistake?
The wild and wacky world of Hillys is populated by both humans and anthropomorphic animals, and provides one of the most exciting left-field settings for any game in recent memory. Unfortunately it's also ravaged by ferocious attacks from the extraterrestrial DomZ, who ruthlessly abduct helpless citizens for purposes unknown. The 'heroic' Alpha Section military purport to be handling the incursions... but as investigative reporter Jade and her porcine sidekick Pej'J soon discover, there's a whole lot more to the situation. Players will assume the role of both characters as they explore the beautifully fleshed-out planet and unravel a terrifying conspiracy.

Beyond Good & Evil is the very definition of a cult classic; garnering overwhelming critical acclaim and abjectly miserable sales figures. However, a shiny HD version has now been confirmed for both Xbox Live Arcade and the Playstation Network.
There's no firm release date beyond 'next year,' but this revamp will apparently boast 1080p visuals, new character models, impressive texturing, a fully remastered soundtrack, leaderboards (for some reason) and naturally a bevy of achievements or trophies. In case you didn't know
It's about time. Listen folks, just buy the damn thing this time around!
The March launch window for the 3DS came as surprise to many Nintendo fans, since their consoles tend to coincide with the holiday season. However, Ninty president Satoru Iwata has told a panel of industry analysts that they had originally hoped for a 2010 release. Apparently supply problems have scuppered the planned schedule, thus forcing head office to push back the release date into next year.
We specialise in online delivery deals here, but as many of you may remember from (and took advantage of) last year, the major supermarket chains tend to compete over who can offer the lowest launch prices for the FIFA series. FIFA 11 will be hitting store shelves tomorrow- and as you might expect, the supermarkets are going berzerk.
As I like to say: this is half news, half deal and all awesome. Why not grab a copy with your next grocery run? Naturally, we'll be bringing you a review of FIFA 11 asap. [via VG247 and tips]
Minecraft has proven to be a massive Indie hit, allowing players to construct pretty much anything in the sandbox environment. Naturally we've seen many a Mario level and geeky homage make a welcome appearance... but user theinternetftw has constructed a 16-bit Arithetic Logic Engine that will soon be capable of running actual code. This is astounding, folks- partly because it's a working virtual...physical...computer... within a computer, and partly due to the fact that it's the size of a small town.
Oh and to all you naysayers who are about to cry "why should we care," the creator has been offered a job based solely on the project. The system works, folks- and I just hope that the same is true of the Xbox Live Indie Marketplace and LittleBigPlanet community.
I'll be venturing out from the safety of my news desk to hit the Eurogamer Expo this weekend. Hopefully I'll see some of you there! And give y'all a free T Shirt.
