Halo 3: ODST joins the Master Chief Collection this Friday [UPDATE: or not]

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is ready to make good on its apology package by adding Halo 3: ODST into the mix.

UPDATE: But not this Friday, apparently. "A placeholder release date for the ODST campaign for Halo: The Master Chief Collection was inadvertently listed on the Xbox Store," reads a new update from Microsoft. "We continue final testing and will make an official announcement once our release date is determined, and apologize for any confusion."

Halo: The Master Chief Collection is now £19.99 on Xbox One - time to finish the fight

Halo: The Master Chief Collection has long been castigated for its broken matchmaking, but I've encountered nothing but speedy loads and great matches over the last couple of months thanks to some great patches. I'd recommend it to any series fan as the amount of content is utterly staggering, including the four legendary campaigns that are a blast to revisit in their entirety, in co-op or cross game playlists. Well, apart from some of Halo 2's weaker missions, that is.

Go2Games are now selling a new copy for £19.99, which is a great price and one of the best we've ever seen without buying used.

Titanfall is just £12.25 new on Xbox One

Titanfall is still a magnificent shooter. Accessible yet deep, ridiculously fun and empowering, mechanically peerless, it's well worth getting into even if the player count is now admittedly rather low. It's also an incredibly important game, directly responsible for the rush to include exciting vertical mechanics we see in most next-gen FPS titles these days.

It's a great price for a new copy. If you're on the fence, check out our Titanfall review and remember that the three excellent map packs are free!

Battlefield Hardline's first map pack revealed, deserves a vaguely Police-related pun

It would be criminal to... no. 'Ello 'ello 'ello, what's going on here then... argh, definitely not.

Tell you what, I'll leave the puns to you this time and stick to the basics: Battlefield Hardline has detailed its first DLC pack. Entitled Criminal Activity, you can expect four maps, two vehicles and plenty of unlockables including a nailgun.

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood is a blast to the past, now only £10.89/.99 on Xbox One

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood acts as a prequel to The New Order, throwing B.J. Blazkowicz into two tough campaigns as he breaks into Castle Wolfenstein and races to stop the Nazis from possessing dangerous occult artefacts. It's solid and satisfying fare, focusing on action over story, and you can now pick it up the Xbox One version at a huge saving (as an Xbox One download key you can buy it Stateside too).

It's a stonking deal. Our resident deal hunter Buzz tells me that "it’s f****** hard," which is a good sign if you like a challenge.

Destiny is still going strong - find out why for £16.99 on PS4 & Xbox One

Destiny is an odd little game. It's mechanically impeccable, the co-op is fantastic fun and the competitive multiplayer is highly underrated in this pundit's opinion. However, many gamers returned their copy, and I nearly joined them after becoming crushingly disappointed with its terrible storytelling and deleting it off my hard drive.

Thankfully I then re-installed it and still dip in on a weekly basis. To find out why, check out Forgiving Destiny: why my Biggest Disappointment Of 2014 is winning me back. Though we've occasionally seen it in short-lived £15.00 deals, this latest offer is a steal at £16.99.

Remember that the new House Of Wolves expansion is hitting soon, including some free content for those who don't own the season pass. Thanks and credit to nunn @ HUKD!

Wolfenstein: The Old Blood acts as a prequel to The New Order, throwing B.J. Blazkowicz into two tough campaigns as he breaks into Castle Wolfenstein and races to stop the Nazis from possessing dangerous occult artefacts. It's solid and satisfying fare by all accounts, focusing on action over story, and you can now pick it up at its lowest UK price (though as a Steam key you can buy it Stateside too).

It's a stonking deal and only a few pennies dearer than Nuuvem, but without the hassle of buying via a VPN. Our resident deal hunter Buzz tells me that "it’s f****** hard," which is a good sign if you like a challenge.

Halo 5: Guardians plummets down to £37.99 on Xbox One - #HUNTtheDEALS

Halo 5's #HUNTtheTRUTH campaign is still going strong, but we've managed to hunt down a killer pre-order deal for this anticipated shooter. You can currently reserve a copy for £37.99, which we'll wager is cheaper than most if not all launch day deals. Pre-orders can be risky business, but if you can undercut the RRP, it's always worth considering. Hopefully 343 will make sure the matchmaking runs perfectly!

Who's the hero and who's the villain? Why is Spartan Locke pursuing The Master Chief, and to what end? Will Zavvi actually deliver it on time? We'd love to hear your best theories.

Can Black Ops 3 fix Call Of Duty's biggest flaw?

Can Black Ops 3 fix Call Of Duty's biggest flaw?

Call Of Duty: Black Ops III broke cover over the weekend, as I'm sure you know. The hype train is already rolling in advance of its November 6th launch following the reveal trailer, news of a beta and loads of leaked intel about what Treyarch's third game plans to bring to the table.

To be frank, we're really rather excited.

Professional detachment and  Treyarch's past form aside, Black Ops III is making some very encouraging noises and seems dead-set on fixing one of the biggest problems with the series so far. The singleplayer campaign.

Can Black Ops 3 fix Call Of Duty's biggest flaw?

Call Of Duty is famed for its multiplayer, of course, but many players have forgotten that COD 4: Modern Warfare also delivered one of the most impressive FPS campaigns of the last console generation. It may have been bombastic and intense, but it also delivered a uniquely thought-provoking perspective on war, focusing on the personal cost in some unforgettable and surprisingly intimate sequences. Coupled with some sensational set pieces (All Ghillied Up will remain a timeless classic), it was an underrated component of a deservedly lauded shooter.

Catch up with Call Of Duty: Black Ops for just £5.69 today (Steam code)

Black Ops 3 may have broken cover, but if you want to catch up with the first game in the trilogy, you can now grab a Steam code for just £5.69 today.

For me, Treyarch's games deliver the best singleplayer campaigns since the original Modern Warfare, and Black Ops was brilliant. Amazing set pieces and a powerful storyline, though respawning enemies can annoy.

Yes, people are still playing Destiny. Find out why for £18.57 on PS4 & Xbox One

Every time someone on the internet mentions Destiny, I hear people grumbling. "Why are you writing all these Destiny articles?" "Are people still playing Destiny?"

Well, yes, they are. We are still playing Destiny. Despite its disappointing storyline and repetitive structure, it's an engaging and convenient social experience that allows you and a few mates to play on your terms, both cooperatively and competitively, all while earning persistent upgrades. You're a bit late to the party, guardian, but if you want to get involved you can grab a current-gen copy for just £18.57.

I actually found myself warming to it this year as I changed my play habits. Find out more in Forgiving Destiny: why my Biggest Disappointment Of 2014 is winning me back.

Watch the British forces breach & clear in the new Rainbow Six: Siege trailer

Rainbow Six: Siege is looking tastier every time we see it, and we're growing more cautiously optimistic with each new trailer. As a multinational unit picked from the best of the best, Rainbow Six will allow you to play as operatives from various countries -- and this first trailer showcases the British forces.

Based fairly obviously on the SAS, Brits breach from above and carve a way through target buildings using speed, gas and shock tactics. With luck, this will be a return to form for the long-ignored franchise and for Ubisoft themselves, but naturally we'll have to wait and see.

I described this hot electric shooter as "one of the most elegant games released in years" in our 8/10 Heavy Bullets review, as you can see on the Steam store page. It's a slippery and gorgeous procedural shooter that does a lot with its minimalist design, and an absolute blast to boot.

I'm fairly sure that you get two copies (an extra token should be added to your Steam inventory), but don't quote me on that.

DeadCore is dead cheap at £2.00 on PC

From what I've heard, DeadCore is an excellent parkour-inspired speedrunning FPS platformer that flew under the radar last year. It's good or great by all accounts, and better yet, it's 50% off on GamersGate for those who like their PC games cheap as well as quality.
