Batman: Arkham Knight Steelbook Edition only £22 on XO

Batman: Arkham Knight is a hot contender for Game of the Year and this is a sweet deal if you've not already taken Rocksteady's final tour of Gotham. So take a look at this £22 deal for the DLC packed Steelbook Edition on Xbox One

Is it any good? Well, here's a short version of my review"Rocksteady and Batman is a combination we'll sorely miss. Their trilogy ends on a high though, with a refinement of their excellent Freeflow combat and Predator modes. The Batmobile is a somewhat mixed experience, but its heart is in the right place. Our much-awaited tour of the city of Gotham was a gorgeous sight to behold and an unforgettable goodbye." Be sure to check out these articles too: Batman: Arkham Knight's Batmobile - Brilliant fun or a legacy betrayed? and Why Rocksteady quitting Batman after Arkham Knight is the right choice.

Transformers: Devastation £18.99 on PS4/XO

Transformers: Devastation £18.99 on PS4/XO

With so much competition around at this time of year, Transformers: Devastation has seen some rapid discounting since release. Act fast and you could grab a copy for just £18.99 on PS4 or Xbox One in this Lightning Deal.

This is a far cry from the terrible direct movie tie-ins, especially as Platinum Games, the team behind Bayonetta, have developed it. The levels themselves are a little bland and the campaign only lasts about four hours, but the combat is certainly a lot of fun.

Destiny: The Taken King - Legendary Edition only £27 on Xbox One

Destiny: The Taken King - Legendary Edition only £27 on Xbox One

This new version of Destiny is packed with value as it includes the base game, the original Season Pass expansion content (House of Wolves and The Dark Below) as well as the new expansion The Taken King. Today's sale price is comfortably cheaper than the competition too.

There are some radical changes to the way the XP system works in Destiny too when The Taken King arrives. Essentially, the annoying Light system that forced you to equip certain items if you wanted the level boost is being replaced with something similar to the way you levelled up on the way to Lv.20. These are exciting times and it looks like Bungie are making a solid effort at bringing lapsed players back and giving them all the content in this edition seems like a smart move as it's only about £10-£15 more than the base game now. If you want to know more about Destiny's changes and what they mean for players, check out Carl's Destiny: The Taken King review.

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited on PC falls to £9.89

The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited on PC falls to £9.89

This is the cheapest price we've seen since TESO went Buy-To-Play earlier this year, beating the next best offer by around £3. From what I've played of it, there have been numerous improvements from its condition at launch, making it more MMO-like and more Skyrim-esque, but it still doesn't quite hit the mark of either. Still, for £9.89 you can decide for yourself and fight back the forces of Molag Bal. Or spend the entire time stealing things. Either or. Cheers to Buzz for the heads-up!

Get Dark Souls II on PS3 / Xbox 360 for just £4.99

Here's a great offer those those who have yet to jump to the current-gen and have also yet to play the latest Dark Souls title. You'll be saving as much as you're spending with this offer compared to the next best deal elsewhere. While its revised version in Scholars of the First Sin refines the overall experience, I enjoyed exploring the expansive and varied world of Drangleic in the first edition of the game. It's also a much more accessible entry point to the series compared to its predecessor, although let's face it - it's still a Dark Souls game, and you will die. Thanks to sm182 @ HUKD!

Get a Wii U Premium console with Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon for £219.99

While we've seen cheaper Wii U premium bundles in the past, this is the lowest price for one that includes two of the best games for the system right now. With the best offer for both titles currently coming in at around £50 overall, it makes this particular bundle very tempting for those that have yet to get hold of one. Thanks to heartyparty @ HUKD!

Black Friday 2015 Survival Guide | How to navigate this year’s retail madness

Although there have been some pretty tasty deals already, tomorrow marks this year’s Black Friday, with Cyber Monday following soon after. Some of you may have already begun your Christmas shopping, but Black Friday usually signals the moment when retailers really start pushing their best deals. It can often be a lot to take in, but we’ve set up this guide to help you navigate the internet during this time of flash deals and (hopefully) ridiculous bargains.

Black Friday 2015 Survival Guide | How to navigate this year’s retail madness

Black Friday: The Lowdown

Its prominence in the UK rose last year thanks to main high street retailers finally getting involved (and the ludicrous stampedes that occurred) but in case you have yet to learn what Black Friday is we’ve got the lowdown for you below:

What is Black Friday? Black Friday is the first Friday after Thanksgiving (yes, blame the US), and has therefore been a time when many consumers have had the day off and used the freedom to do a spot of Christmas shopping. As a result, many stores began gearing their key sales towards this date, and it's swelled into global retail phenomenon.

Why Black Friday? Perhaps it's because profits start swinging back into the black again around this time of year. Perhaps it's because of the horrors that customer-facing staff see every year as the stampeding hordes approach their doors. Wikipedia posits that the terms originated in Philadelphia, where it was "used to describe the heavy and disruptive pedestrian and vehicle traffic which would occur on the day after Thanksgiving".

20% off of EVERYTHING at Insert Coin Clothing

I've bought several pieces of clothing from Insert Coin over the years. Two of them are Assassin's Creed hoodies because, come on now, who doesn't love the peak? Also, they appear to be the only hoods that will actually spread over my afro and not look completely rubbish.

Far from simply being a store full of blank tees with geeky prints steam-pressed on, Insert Coin take their business seriously. Unfortunately, it also means that they're often a little bit pricey.

However, this Cyber Monday has seen them drop a voucher code that'll knock 20% off of everything!

All you have to do to get your 20% off is use the code ASL2014 at the checkout.

Black Friday: The Ultimate Guide - Console bundle bargains, games deals, and utter retail madness

Black Friday Week is almost upon us, although with the scorching console bundle deals we've been seeing these past few days, you could be forgiven for thinking that it was already here. The Christmas retail season is about to hit full swing and there'll be games deals aplenty in amongst the retail madness. There'll be lots to get through, but this guide to Black Friday and Cyber Monday should hopefully stand you in good stead.

Black Friday: The Lowdown

If you're not American or directly involved in the retail industry, you might not even have heard of Black Friday, athough you'll probably have heard the stampeding herds of shoppers around this time of year. Here's a quick guide to what Black Friday actually entails:

Black Friday is coming, sites slashing prices early

Ah, Black Friday. Every year, after US Thanksgiving, the retail world turns into a long weekend of awesome deals and slashed prices, bookended by the consumer frenzy of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, as the Christmas retail season kicks into full swing.

It's a brilliant time of year, and we're going to be here to help you make the most of it!

What's Cyber Monday? Cyber Monday was kind of engineered back in 2005 as an online equivalent to the high-street frenzy of Black Friday. However, the whole weekend is basically one big retail festival of sales these days.
