Weekly Dealspwn.com Roundup 13th - 19th July 2015

It's weekly roundup time, folks. You'll find links to the biggest news stories, feature articles and reviews below from everything at Dealspwn over the last seven days. There was only one news story really on our minds this week though, and that was the tragic passing of Nintendo President, Satoru Iwata, at the startlingly young age of 55. His enthusiasm and creativeness was an inspiration to all and he'll be missed by friends, family, colleagues and gamers the world over.

Elsewhere in the news you'll find the return of Commodore (ask your parents), an update about Arkham Knight's issues on the PC, Elder Scrolls Online DLC, the disappointing (stupid) decision of Deep Silver to drop Yager from Dead Island 2 and more.

As you may have heard, the good ship Dealspwn's Captain, Jon Lester, has moved onto a new career after many successful years at Dealspwn. Did you know he'd posted 13,000 articles here! There's not a snowball's chance in hell we'd be on Metacritic without his extensive reviews database too. There's a final podcast with Jon, Carl and a special guest for you *may contain emotions. Rounding up the roundup this week, is Buzz's F1 2015 review.

Weekly Dealspwn.com Roundup 29th June - 5th July 2015

It's weekly roundup time, folks. You'll find links to the hottest news stories, feature articles and reviews below. First up, news highlights include the possible reveal of The Last of Us 2, Microsoft's Gamescom plans, more Uncharted 4 footage, July's PlayStation + games and more.

We're now halfway through the year, so we've put together our picks of the best games of 2015 (so far) for the PS4, Xbox One and Wii U/3DS. Elsewhere, I consider the impact of Naughty Dog dumping eight months of Amy Hennig's work for Uncharted 4 and also ask if the Xbox One Elite controller being a game exclusive could doom it to eternal high prices. Jon examines the anticlimax that was DriveClub's PlayStation + Edition and looks at the controversial/unwanted Metroid Prime: Federation Force. Our roundtable discussion asks the team 'Does the last of us actually need a sequel?'

Reviews this week include Dreamfall Chapters - Book Three: Realms and Steins;Gate.

Weekly Dealspwn.com Roundup 22nd-28th June 2015

It's time for your weekly roundup of the gaming news highlights, features and reviews at Dealspwn.com. Batman: Arkham Knight has been in the news for all the wrong reasons because of a disastrous PC port. The Uncharted movie has lost another director. A new 1TB PS4 was announced alongside Blue Xbox One. Driveclub's PS+ edition finally launched - sort of. PSN has been suffering from horribly long download times. All the links to these stories and more are below.

In the features, Jon asks if Project Cars 2 was announced too early and also tells us why Nintendo must admit the Wii U's mistakes to succeed with their next console, the NX.  Buzz has been busy with all things Bethesda, telling us why their Fallout 4 reveal has schooled the industry and he's also braved the servers of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited to bring us some impressions. After seeing a brand new Rise of The tomb Raider demo, I argue the point that Microsoft showed the wrong stage demo at E3 2015. But I soon got over it thanks to the arrival of Batman: Arkham Knight as I ask if the Batmobile is brilliant fun or a legacy betrayed.

Our reviews are co-headlined by the rather awesome pairings of Batman: Arkham Knight and Yoshi's Wooly World. You'll also find extensive verdicts on J-Stars Victory VS+, Tales from the Borderlands: Episode 3 - Catch a Ride and Operation Abyss: New Tokyo Legacy.

Google are aiming for some of the Twitch crowd with a new app on YouTube. Capcom confirmed Street Fighter V will never to come to XO, Tales of Zesteria is now coming to PS4 and Steam in addition to the PS3.

Weekly Dealspwn.com Roundup 1st-7th June 2015

In the news this week, everything paled compared to the announcement of Fallout 4. Not that we didn't raise a glass to the announcement of XCOM 2 though also. Elsewhere, you'll find information on the new Minecraft-aping Lego Worlds and we give you the full rundown on Rock Band 4's backwards compatibility. And don't look now, but it looks like Steam are finally offering a genuinely reasonable refund policy. Be sure to check out links to these stories and more below.

In the Features, we pull apart all the information we can from the new Fallout 4 trailer and also examine the gaming community's reaction via Twitter (you're excited!). Previews include Rock Band 4 and Tempo the Badass Elephant. Comment pieces talk about the long overdue 1TB hard-drive options for the PS4 and Xbox One, the new Steam controller and whether the new Uncharted Collection is treading water, or an essential collection.

Not a bad week for new reviews this week with great scores for Wolfenstein: The Old Blood and Horizon Shift. Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven also did well. Be sure to check out our extensive review of the rather massive Bloodborne Collector's Edition Strategy Guide book too.

Weekly Dealspwn.com Roundup 11th-17th May 2015

Recently in my weekly roundup, I've tried whittling the news stories down to the ten hottest stories of the week. With E3 drawing closer though, it's closer to twenty today! We've had new reveals for Assassin's Creed: Syndicate, Evil Within DLC, Lego Portal, Ark: Survival Evolved, a spiritual sequel to Castlevania and more. There have been more Fallout 4 rumours, Metal Gear toys with squeezable boobs (oh, Japan), Sony/MS E3 news, The Division delayed and more.

Our feature articles include previews for Rocket League, Attack on Titan, The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing III, Selfie: Sisters of the Amniotic Lens and Wulverblade. With Capcom announcing their intent to do more HD remasters, I go through the most wanted titles on our list of candidates. After the official reveal of Assassin's Creed: Syndicate I put together a couple of articles, one on why the game already looks better than Unity and another on the important questions we still have about the game. Jon took the time to explain the multiple preorders available for the game, but asks if it really deserves your preorder cash already? Elsewhere, Jon tells us why Lego Dimensions is the toys-to-life title to beat this Christmas, suggests which free games should come on Windows 10 instead of Candy Crush and finally, a piece on the importance of Metacritic in today's world.

A busy week then, but somehow, Jon found the time to review Project Cars , Code Name: STEAM and Hyperdimension Neptunia U: Action Unleashed. I'll join in with the reviews again next week. I'm currently reviewing a chair. Yep, a chair. Enjoy the links below, and we'll do it all again next week!

At A Glance: Roundup 9th - 15th  March 2015

Here's you weekly roundup of the ten hottest gaming news stories at Dealspwn, along with links to all our features and reviews. An obvious highlight in the new being Titanfall 2 being confirmed and it's going multi-platform. Arguably bigger news though is Uncharted 4 being delayed until spring 2016. So much sad.

The Uncharted delay gets some coverage in our Features too as I dry my tears and examine the implications for Sony and the PS4 this Christmas. I also give some thought to developers concentrating on making games for our new consoles in 'It's time developers finally left last-gen behind.' Jon has your back with some important facts about GTA: Heists, which will be useful if the game is working online by the time you read this (why can't anything have a smooth launch?). Speaking of poor launches, remember how rubbish the last SimCity was? Fear not, there's a new city building sim  in town. The rather excellent Cities: Skylines has just launched and Carl has a tips guide for you.

Cities: Skylines is one of the highest scoring games in our reviews section too. DmC: Definitive Edition and Zombie Army Trilogy do pretty damn well too. Shelter 2? Not so much. But it is pretty.
