The battle of the Summer Sales is really kicking off today, with Funstock joining in with big reductions on the Far Cry series on PC. We've got the full list of titles on sale for you below, so if you've missed out on the open-world shooter - especially the latest titles - now might be an opportune time to delve into the insanity. One quick note before you buy - do be are that various types of DRM are in use, including uPlay. Thanks to jaystan @ HUKD!
At a minuscule £3.74, you really have no excuse to not pick up 2012's finest FPS experience. The open tropical paradise is packed with a wide variety of missions, tasks and collectibles. Stealth skills are fantastically fluid and empowering as you ninja your way through enemy bases, until you get attacked by a tiger that is. The multiplayer side of the game is excellent too, with the co-op proving a surprise highlight. You can also add the Deluxe DLC bundle for £1.74 giving you extra single-player and multiplayer content.

Far Cry 3 is one of the best FPS games on the market and is fantastic value for money with such a huge world to explore, a great story and some excellent gameplay that includes some of the best stealth around. Oh and lots of guns, naturally. Amazon are practically giving the game away at this price and you really should get some practice in with that knife before the sequel lands later this year. It replaces tigers and gliders with elephants and gyrocopters. Epic upgraded.

I've no idea where this one came from, but you get all three Far Cry games and the standalone homage to retro action movies, Blood Dragon. The first game is the HD digital re-release that hit PSN/XBLA a while back. Far Cry 2 is a mixed bag thanks to the oversized map, pesky enemies and the whole malaria thing. FC3 is one of the finest shooters ever made thanks to a world packed with things to do and some of the best stealth elements in gaming. All said and done, this is a fantastic deal for months of entertainment and should see you through the wait until Far Cry 4 later this year.

Far Cry 3 is an outstanding game, and you can currently buy it over on GamersGate for the low price of £3.75, we've seen it go a little lower but it's still a decent price for a game that'll gift hours and hours of awesome, open world, jungle-based action.
However, spend a little more for the Deluxe version and you'll save yourself several quid on a bundle that includes the full game as well as all of the pre-order DLC -- six extra missions across two DLC packs, exclusive weapons and in-game items, and the game's soundtrack.

At under £20 for what may be the first time, you really have no excuse to not pick up 2012's finest FPS experience. The open tropical paradise is packed with a wide variety of missions, tasks and collectibles. Stealth skills are fantastically fluid and empowering as you ninja your way through enemy bases, until you get attacked by a tiger that is. The multiplayer side of the game is excellent too, with the co-op proving a surprise highlight.

Gamestop's hilarious misprice has practically ruined Far Cry 3 deals for us now, but if you didn't pick it up for a fiver (along with all of its predecessors to boot), Green Man Gaming are currently the cheapest on the market. You're probably well aware that it's one of the best games of 2013, and quite possibly the best shooter, so this is still a bit of a bargain.

Far Cry 3 just waltzed in at the back end of last year and wiped the floor with everyone. Halo? COD? forget about it, 2012 belonged to Far Cry 3. You have a huge tropical playground to explore with multiple collectibles and mission strands to complete. A huge improvement over the last game with less malaria and jamming guns and more stabby stealth and pirate bases. Make sure you don't miss out on the excellent online co-op too.
Those of you who weren't glued to the footy may well have watched the BAFTA Game Awards last night, where two PSN exclusives managed to clean up. Journey returned with no less than five awards, including game design, artisitic achievement and even online multiplayer (called it), while The Unfinished Swan managed to snag two shinies for innovation and best debut. Other worthy winners include Dishonored as Best Game, XCOM: Enemy Unknown for Best Strategy Game and The Room as best of British.
We've got all the winners and nominations after the jump, thanks in no small part to the inestimable Late who actually beat us to the punch this morning.Click here to read more...
The British Academy Games Awards 2013 nominees have been announced, including a neat mix of big-budget AAA games and some deserving indie shouts.
Indeed, thatgamecompany's Journey has managed to steal the show, being nominated for a whopping eight categories including Artistic Achievement and Best Game. The Walking Dead, Far Cry 3 and Dear Esther follow (with seven, six and five nominations apiece), actually managing to beat the likes of Assassin's Creed III and Halo 4.
Of course, nominations are all well and good, but we'll find out the actual winners on Tuesday March 5th. We've got all the details after the break, everything from Action to Online Multiplayer and Ones To Watch. As always, we'd love to hear what you make of the choices - and your personal pick for the overall winners.Click here to read more...
In my opinion, this was easily the best shooter of 2012 and one of the most-improved sequels I've ever played. While I'm sure some of you are waiting for the game to dip below £20, this is still a great price. You get real value for money with FC3 as it has a huge campaign packed with extra side-missions and collectables. The multiplayer is stunning too, with the co-op stages in particular showing up the competition. Don't forget to check out my Survival Tips guide.
Wow, this is a long list. Admittedly, I’ve barely encountered any of these and with any luck, I never will now. The patch fixes a range of issues in single player, multiplayer and the map editor.
Single player fixes include mission specific bugs, challenge leaderboard issues and a strange glitch that left weapons attached to your arm making aiming the bow a nightmare. Multiplayer updates fix issues with the loadout editor, weapon damage not registering and host migration problems amongst many others.

No change, please. A cursory glance at this week's UK games charts might make you wonder whether we've just copy/pasted the last one, with only a couple of titles shifting position in the bottom half of the top ten.
Anarchy Reigns, the only new major release, has charted at a fairly respectable 16th place. In what's becoming a worrying trend, you won't find even a single Wii U exclusive bothering the top forty - so here's hoping that the Q1 release schedule will shake things up a bit for Nintendo.Click here to read more...
Back in November we posted an amusing live action video starring Christopher ‘McLovin’ Mintz-Plasse shooting a promo for Far Cry 3 that suddenly got very real. Think Tropic Thunder and you're on the right line. Well, after that teaser, we've found a video compiling all the episodes of The Far Cry Experience. Michael Mando (the voice of Vaas) stars in the video and steals the show, also proving he's a shoe-in if anyone decides to make the game into a proper movie.
