The Darkness II: Limited Edition is cheaper than a beer at £3.25

The Darkness II is usually lurking around at a wallet-friendly price, but today it's practically throwing itself at you for £3.25 on the 360.

The Darkness II is a fine example on how to improve on an average first game. We love the new comic-noir art style that perfectly complements this grim tale of a mob boss battling rival mobs and cults who want to steal his powers. The Darkness of the title enables Jacky to use two serpent-like arms that sprout from his shoulders to attack his enemies. Using these attacks in conjunction with guns provides the ultimate in quad-wielding bloodbaths.

Thanks to Trixster.

Battlefield: Hardline Top 5 Survival Tips

It’s ok, I know your pain. You promised yourself you’d put a bit of time into the likes of Battlefield 4, Destiny or Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in order to get your online multiplayer skills up to scratch, but where has that time gone. If you signed up to the new Battlefield: Hardline open beta you might be having a bit of tough time getting back into the swing of things. I can’t stop people shooting you in the back half a second after respawning, or offer any logical advice on how to fly a helicopter, but here are five survival tips that should make life less difficult.

Battlefield: Hardline Top 5 Survival Tips

Buy a new assault rifle

Sorry to get all technical on you, but the default assault rifle is just balls. It’s particularly awful if you’ve not played a shooter online since last year thanks to the way the muzzle dances around as soon as you look at the trigger. Money earned from matches can be spent on new weapons and the first weapon you’ll want to buy is the SG553, which reduces recoil and increases accuracy. Sadly, you’ll only be able to use it as the Police. I’m not sure having the unlocks tied to each side is a good idea to be honest, Visceral – especially at those prices. If you’re light on funds, maybe opt for the mechanic’s sub-machine gun, which is much steadier than the first rifle, albeit at the cost of range.

Pick up Destiny from only £19.89 on PS4 or XO

Pick up Destiny from only £19.89 on PS4 or XO

This may just be the cheapest price we've seen for Destiny on the PS4 and Xbox One. There are a few options for you here. Preowned -but 'like new'- options from the retailer's Warehouse department are £19.89 on XO or £20.67 on PS4. If you're a fan of cellophane wrapping though and would like a new one, both formats are only £25, which is £4-8 cheaper than the other sites out there.

Destiny has been great fun so far, albeit a somewhat shallower experience than we were expecting thanks to a gated levelling system that makes it difficult to get past Lv20 without a hell of a lot of work. Don't even get us started on the rotating PVP modes. If you're planning on playing missions with a group of friends though, there's a moreish experience to be found that's unlike anything else on the new consoles.

Playing the beta? Check out Brendan's Battlefield Hardline Survival Guide!

After getting to grips with the game last year and lamenting that it felt like a BF4 mod rather than anything particularly fresh, Battlefield: Hardline proceeded to miss its original drop date, and got pushed back to this year. We rejoiced in the hopes of the developers using the extra time to work out what it was that they actually wanted to do with Hardline, maybe even giving the game some semblence of an identity beyond that of its predecessor. Well, now there's a new beta out and, having spent several hours playing cops and robbers in the new build, here are a bunch of our impressions on the latest slice of action from Visceral games and DICE.

"Not Much Cop" - Battlefield: Hardline Beta Roundtable Impressions

Battlefield Hardline is back and much has improved. Instead of feeling like a palette swap, it now feels like a DLC pack.

Improvement is a very relative thing, I suppose.

From Battlefield to Bay-ttlefield: Hardline is still a hot mess, but Hotwire mode finally gives us what we want

To say that we were not exactly impressed with Battlefield: Hardline's testing period last year would be an understatement, and we weren't the only ones to find ourselves wondering if Hardline would just be a skins-and-maps download expansion for Battlefield 4. To call Hardline a palette-swap might have been something of a disservice at the time given that what we saw of it was just a sliver of the full game, but that didn't stop many fans from levelling that accusation at Visceral Games and DICE, and writing Hardline off as an attempt at annualisation that one could afford to skip out on until Battlefield 5 turns up.

To be honest, playing through familiar game types like Conquest and Team Deathmatch in this week's beta, that's probably still a fair reaction. Then again, when you slap a huge, recognisable brand like "Battlefield" on a game, you're rather limiting your own options for diversification.

From Battlefield to Bay-ttlefield: Hardline is still a hot mess, but Hotwire mode finally gives us what we want

That being said, the Bank Job map included in this beta actually does a decent job of making the Heist game mode that we tried out last year feel like something a little new. Robbers go for the loot, and have to work together to drill through and collect the swag, defending their position until they're ready to depart and head for a randomly generated exit route via a spawned helicopter. The cops, of course, have to stop that from happening... by any means necessary.

Scurrying around the Downtown level we played on last year, things devolved into spray-and-pray anarchy relatively quickly, but on the Bank Job map, the overwatch spots for the cops and the tight corridors of the bank make teamwork an absolute must. It's no Payday 2, mind, but it's a little more strategic than we've previously seen, particularly when plotting your entry routes to the target building. Outside, however, things get pretty familiar pretty quickly, and vehicles are disabled in this mode, sort of nerfing Battlefield's trademark best qualities. The addition of things like ziplines and grappling hooks are nice, but if you're a fan of heist titles that lean towards meticulous planning, you're going to be disappointed here.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare discounted again - Available from £23.86 on PS4/XO

£23.86 for a copy of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on your Xbox One is a great price and about £6 cheaper than the next best deal. The PS4 version is £25 at the same site, which is still the cheapest around by £7. Usually, you'd never see the latest COD for under £30 so soon, but don't let the aggressive discounting fool you into thinking this isn't worth a look.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has been a grand return and reinvention for the FPS series. The futuristic setting has been the perfect excuse to introduce the exoskeleton which gives players double jump and speed boost dodge skills. The campaign was oodles of fun and had the best of Hollywood (Kevin Spacey) and gaming VO actors (Troy Baker) to keep you hooked throughout. Oh, and the multiplayer is better than it's been in years -head straight to Uplink and Kill Confirmed modes to see why. Here's my full review.

Thanks to preparationiskey.

Say no to next-gen ripoffs. Borderlands: Pre-Sequel £14.86 on PS3/360

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel has never been cheaper than this on consoles. £14.86 is a tenner cheaper than the competition and console gamers find themselves in new territory today as this price is actually cheaper than the PC version.

The upcoming Handsome Collection on PS4/XO will include a next-gen version of the Pre-Sequel and Borderlands 2, but most pre-orders are around the £40 mark, which is all sorts of grim for old rope with a smidge of polish. Whereas picking up this version will save you loads, especially if you've already played the hell out of Borderlands 2.

Thanks to ventoo.

Medal Of Honor: Warfighter gunned down to £1.75 on PC

Medal Of Honor: Warfighter now only £1.75 at Tesco Direct. Click here to get it! >>

Tesco seem to be getting rid of some PC surplus over the weekend, including Medal Of Honor: Warfighter for an insanely cheap £1.75. Though I chastised this incredibly unambitious shooter in my Medal of Honor: Warfighter Review, much is forgiven at this price, but I can't personally vouch for whether it still has a functional multiplayer community.

Still, PC games tend to retain their player bases far longer than the console versions. And again, this is an incredibly cheap PC deal so long as you click and collect. Thanks to ABrune @ HUKD!

Opening Scenes | Dying Light Gameplay - First 30 Mins

Dying Light is an odd game. Its story is rubbish, and its scripted missions are even worse, frequently railroading you into combat against men with machine guns when all you have is a bloodied table leg. But there's something to be said for the systems underpinning the game's world. Ignoring the script and going off-piste and just having fun with all of Dying Light's bells and whistles is actually a lot of fun. Ignore the clunky framing, and there's a wonkily brilliant sandbox to much around in, stuffed with the undead and things to climb.

Not that you see much of that in the game's opening scenes. Let's just say that it takes a little while to get going.

Nonetheless, here's a look at the game's introduction and the scene setting and instruction that comes with Dying Light's first half hour or so. The video above is bereft of commentary, but you can click here to see and hear me take on the game's first hour too if you like.

Though perhaps not quite as breathtaking as the original game, Bioshock Infinite still has a lot going for it as one of the most thought-provoking FPS titles of the last generation, and it's super cheap right now.

Finished Wolfenstein? Need more Dinos and Nazis in your life? Dino D-Day is free on Steam this weekend

Dino D-Day is free on Steam this weekend. Click here for Nazi theropods >>

Dino D-Day is a game featuring machine-gun-toting dinosaurs. And Nazis. And Nazi dinosaurs. Shotting things to bits.

It's the sort of high-concept affair that we rather enjoy here on Dealspwn, although if you're somehow not sold on "gunning down a Dilophosaur with an M1", you'll be pleased to know that the game is free to play for the next handful of days over the weekend.

Because we all know that the true hero of the Second World War was, in fact, a Protoceratops named Trigger.
