DXHR: Human Revolution - The Missing Link DLC | GamersGate | £2.50 (save £1.50)
Well, we called it back when Activision leapt onto the stage with Sony at the PS4 presser. This morning's burblings from the rumour mill suggest that EA and Respawn Entertainment's upcoming shooter might well be coming exclusively to the Xbox 360 and its as-yet unannounced successor.Click here to read more...
Remember the infamous Killzone 2 reveal back in 2005? It was supposedly real gameplay footage, but it was actually a pre-rendered video designed to showcase what the PS3 might be able to do.
In any case, for the PS4, Guerilla Games decided (probably for the best) that they really ought to make the reveal real.Click here to read more...
The latest Metro: Last Light mood trailer fills in some extra story details following a series of factual survival guide videos. Anna, the Spartan Order of Rangers' top sniper and daughter of their uncompromising leader Miller, talks about the hope of the survivors that rests on Artyom's shoulders. It's also another look at the tense action, scavenging and horrific mutants that players will encounter once Last Light releases on May 17th.

This is a stand-alone game, rather than a piece of DLC for Far Cry 3. It's also right at the top of our most wanted lists. This homage to the 80s straight-to-video action movie is packed with ridiculous levels of neon, cheesy one-liners and epic cool times. And a cyborg dragon. It's all about the cyborg dragons.

Look, there's a big difference between a good deal and a good deal. See, this right here is a good deal, because GamersGate will save you about £3 compared to 365 Games. But it also absolutely isn't a good deal, because the game itself was utter tripe. The 4/10 review is available for your perusal, though bear in mind that the latest patch actually improves a lot of the textures that I tore to pieces back in February.

Rangers will have to ration ammunition and maintain versatile home-made equipment to survive in the harsh irradiated ruins of the Metro system. This latest survival guide trailer for Metro: Last Light gives you a taste of what this involves, from keeping your all important gas mask supplied with filters to using a high-tech stealth watch to sneak around.
Metro: Last Light launches on May 17 for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. You can read more about how 4A have both streamlined and deepened the inventory system in our Metro: Last Light hands-on preview.Click here to read more...
Red Orchestra 2 is one of the most authentic WW2 shooters ever realised, and a multiplayer arena that ranks with the best of them. Now that the few teething troubles are distant memory, it's the kind of ruthless competitive proposition you can only find on the PC, but beware a colossal learning curve and the unwavering ironsights of the invulnerable community.
If you missed the recent PWYW Humble Weekly Deal, GamersGate are flogging it cheap. Save a little extra with the "elder-geek.com" voucher code.
With Bethesda telling us they're not working on Fallout 4 anytime soon, you may as well get stuck into New Vegas if you've finally finished Fallout 3. If you're willing to pay about £16 you can get the DLC packed GOTY edition, but there are over 50 hours of post-apocalypse to discover here. Given how buggy F3's expansion DLC was on PS3, you may be better off with this version. At least you can start this game knowing it's been patched up already, not like at launch. Here's hoping Bethesda can get their heads around the PS4 better than their shoddy track record with the PS3.

It’s yet another opportunity to get hold of Battlefield 3 for a tenner, with Gamersgate being the retailer this time around. It ends up providing a saving of just over £4 compared to the next best offer elsewhere.
Whilst the single player campaign fell a little flat, the multiplayer modes were exactly what we hoped for, with great visuals to back up the action. Along with the PC-exclusive 64-player Conquest mode, this is a good price for those that have yet to try out DICE’s latest. At the very least, it should keep you busy until before Battlefield 4 hits.
Corridor Digital's live action take on Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is handily the most radical, mega and totally legit thing you'll watch today. Blood Dragon strives to achieve a terrible 80s action movie feel, that's 'so bad it's good,' and this 5 minute tribute/trailer absolutely nails it.
I recently got hands-on with Blood Dragon, and can report that it's shaping up nicely.Click here to read more...
Doom 3: BFG Edition is a nifty package for id Software fans, and great value for everyone else at this silly download price. Considering that you'll get the original Doom, Doom 2 and a remastered version of Doom 3 including the expansion pack and extra campaign, there's little to complain about value-wise. Just don't expect graphical miracles. Thanks to Jas10 at HotUKDeals.
The second Ranger Survival Guide trailer for Metro: Last Light is all about the dangerous enemies - both human and monstrous - that Artyom will face in the lonely subway tunnels. Players will have the option to defeat them using gunplay, stealth or tactics; rationing their powerful 'clean' ammunition since it doubles up as hard currency.
Metro: Last Light launches on May 17 for PC, PS3, and Xbox 360. You can read more details in our Metro: Last Light hands-on preview.Click here to read more...

If you were to describe Signal Ops in high concept fashion, you might call it a squad-based, first-person, strategy shooter, with elements of Rainbow Six and, more aptly, Space Hulk thrown into the mix. The basic premise is relatively simple: you start out in a muddy, grimy bunker, surrounded by gentlemen who speak as if plucked from Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, and you're tasked with handling several covert operations. Instead of hitting the ground running yourself, you take up a position in front of a large monitor, dictating the actions of your agents via multiple displays.
It's a neat idea, and Space Hulk managed to pull off something similar back in the mid-Nineties, but the multiple perspectives frequently get muddled and confused. The game's graphical stylings - a washed-out masterclass in all of the colours you might class under the umbrella of "murky grime" - don't help, and though objects are relatively distinct in each of your displays, the shadows are not, which is not ideal for a game that provides much of its satisfaction from successfully completing missions in a stealthy fashion.
Missions will, more often than not, see you presented with a relatively simple objective - retrieve something on the other side of the map, assassinate a designated target, plant incriminating evidence and then hightail it out of there - carried out by two or three agents. Those agents will, typically have different roles to fulfil. The Wrench agent, for example, is a mechanical fixer of sorts, and useful for opening doors. The Shield agent is your tank, able to soak up a fair amount of damage and ideal for direct confrontation. The Scope is, as one might expect, useful from long-range, and the Demo likes to blow things up.
And then there's the Bolt agent, also known as The Fun Killer.Click here to read more...
Why EA and DICE don't just combine the Bad Company and regular Battlefield games to give us a decent story campaign and the excellent multiplayer is beyond me. If you missed out on the boys' latest adventure you owe it to yourself to give it a go at this price. Battlefield's epic sound design and frostbite engine collide in spectacular fashion throughout and there are laughs aplenty with the rest of your squad.

While we're sure to see some form of GOTY release for Borderlands 2 further down the line that bundles in all the DLC expansions, £14.98 is still a great price for the game. It's a fiver cheaper at Zavvi too. You'll get the most from the game if you take it online and hammer around Pandora's wastelands with a band of fellow gun nuts. Gearbox have clearly dedicated all their time to this excellent franchise in recent years, so don't let their other releases like Aliens: Colonial Marines put you off. Or you could buy this preowned to teach them a lesson.

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.

If you still haven't picked up Battlefield 3, GamersGate are ready and waiting to save you a couple of quid on the definitive version of this multiplayer masterpiece. Considering that you can enjoy 64-player battles and enjoy Frostbite 2.0 engine to the full, don't accept the stripped-back console substitutes unless you absolutely have to.
We already had a hunch that Blood Dragon was going to be a little nuts, but today’s new trailer from Ubisoft confirms it’s going to be certifiably retro, TO THE MAX. We’ve got a Hands-On Preview coming later on today, but in the mean time you can watch the neon-based carnage, complete with cyborg T-Rex, after the jump.Click here to read more...
We only have to wait just over a month before we finally get to return to the post-apocalyptic world of the Metro series, so to help you survive Deep Silver have created a series of videos that help prepare for the horrors that await. See if for yourself after the jump.Click here to read more...
