This week's deals with gold have been announced and are as follows:
We imagine most of you already have GTA IV on PS3, but maybe you never got around to picking up the Episodes from Liberty City expansion DLC, The Ballad of Gay Tony and The Lost and Damned? Seeing as the DLC sold separately costs much more, this is a bargain price as you get both episodes and the full GTA game.

Forget why we love, this is why I love the Three Leaf Clover Mission in GTA IV! I think this is without a doubt the best mission in any video game that I've ever played, but then again I'm completely obsessed with movies and I loved this almost flawless homage to Michael Mann's Heat. By the time you get to this mission, you've already started to rise through the ranks of the criminal underworld in Liberty City and you're starting to get a bit cocky, so when you hear you're on your way to a pretty big heist you can't help but think, "I've got plenty of guns, some guys to back me up, and there's probably a pretty quick getaway vehicle nearby, so how hard can this be?"Click here to relive this action masterpiece!
We all know that Vice City is the best of the GTA games, and thanks to a squad of dedicated modders going by the name 'RAGE Team', a GTA IV mod similar to the one that was done for San Andreas will be bringing back the pastel sunsets, rolled up suit sleeves and 80s hedonism that typified Rockstar's homage to Scarface...now neatly bundled up using the Rockstar Advanced Graphics Engine. The team are, in fact, reworking the engine to give this particular mod an extra shade of authenticity, with a BETA release planned for Christmas 2011.Check out the trailer after the jump...
GTA IV provides you with a great experience, whether you're logging on to cause a bit of short term chaos on the streets and behind the wheel, or going all out on a long session whilst immersing yourself in Niko Bellic's story. You'll also get the chance to rob a bank in a similar fashion to the heists features in Heat. The price isn't the lowest I've ever seen in the past, but at the moment it is, and you'll be making a saving of about £5 on the next best offer.
If you've not played GTA IV yet, and lets face it you really should have done by now, then this is a great opportunity to get hold of the game plus its accompanying DLC. Cruising around Liberty City as Niko Bellic isn't exactly a walk in the park and you'll need to prepare yourself for the unexpected, seeing as you could be casually driving around at one moment and robbing a bank the next. I've not played the Ballad Of Gay Tony yet, but The Lost & The Damned is definitely worth checking out, seeing as you'll switch characters to the VP of the local motorcycle club, which'll give you access to some new bikes and weapons. Also, if you're a PC owner looking to pick up a copy of the game, the price over at Gameplay is even sweeter for you, seeing as they're giving it away for £12.99, so just click here to check it out. Thanks to icdeals @ HUKD.
The crowning achievement of Grand Theft Auto IV has to be the shiny new Liberty City, although the campaign's also hugely enjoyable and contains one of my favourite missions ever, where you have to rob a bank Heat style! The complete edition includes both The Ballard of Gay Tony and The Lost and Damned add ons, so you'll be getting a little extra bang for your buck and a chance to continue causing chaos on the streets. Thanks to andywedge @ HUKD.
It might be a little cheaper to shop around if you're the owner of a 360, but for PS3 owners this is certainly the lowest price at the time of writing. GTA IV is an utter masterpiece, though it could have done without the irritating mid-mission phonecalls. Released at the end of the month, frankly if you've waited this long it might be worth waiting for it to fall in November. Thatnks to goonertillidie at HUKD.
The fierce summer sun is setting once again- and Valve are wrapping up their spectacular Steam 'Perils of Summer' sale. Whilst we're personally all a little scared about being left alone once again in the dangerous hot season, the best deals of last week's sale are being repeated for one last day. Let's recap on three of the sale's biggest names and biggest bargains! Note that there are loads of great games on offer, so why not hit the link below before the time runs out at 6:00 this evening!
There ain't no rest for the wicked. And money don't grow on trees. Thankfully Borderlands is currently retailing for £6.79, which is almost half the price of Tesco's nearest standard offer (without using their infamous FTSL 15-1 voucher code). Successfully blending accessible FPS with intuitive online RPG mechanics, Borderlands was one of last year's standout sleeper hits- and is a blast both in singleplayer or with a group of friends. Gear up and get involved!
It's no surprise that Valve's Steam service is offering the best price for their intense cooperative zombie apocalypse simulator, but the magnitude of the deal may knock you for six. The cheapest physical copy of Valve’s dynamic cooperative zombie-butchering thrill ride is currently £14.95 at DVD.co.uk... which, doing the math, will save you just over £8. Well worth your attention, folks...
You know what GTA is. You know what it involves. You know why this is a stone cold bargain. Considering that GTA IV is empirically considered to be one of the best game of all time... and is a fiver cheaper than the nearest competitor... this has got to be worth your attention. Whilst I personally don't dig the gritty realism of Liberty City, there's still more than enough content to warrant a measly fiver outlay.
I've been raving about how dangerous the sun is for years. It's spitting out dangerous radiation, emitting skin-cracking thermal energy and is literally putting our lives at risk. Frankly, it's irresponsible to go outside! Luckily, Steam is currently giving us great reasons to stay indoors with their summer sale... and we've picked another three of the best. You have until 6 to take advantage of these deals!
What more can I usefully say about GTA4? Nico Bellic's descent into the Liberty City underworld (with several sandbox shenanigans and bowling meetings along the way) is often considered to be one of the finest games ever made. Whilst the gritty and realistic atmosphere and car handling may disappoint some, you'll be getting a huge amount of game for just under a fiver. Considering the next best deal will set you back £9.99 from Play.com, this is well worth picking up if you've been sitting on the fence.
What's better than getting a classic strategy game for the price of a pint? Getting five classic games, that's what. The X-Com series wowed us back in the day with rock hard, tactical turn based strategy with elements of budget juggling and diplomacy. Battling aliens all over the world (and subsequently a future metropolis, you'll need ever ounce of cunning to prevail. Oh, and the spinoff flight sim and arcade shooter are also included- and make an excellent antidote to some of the white knuckle missions!
Whilst this deal will only save you a couple of quid, the convenience of netting the entire venerable Commandos series makes this well worth bringing to your attention. Considered to be some of the finest RTS action out there, you'll take control of the nuanced team of commandos and utilise their unique skills to fulfill your objectives. It's clever, fun and bursting with character- and I heartily recommend giving this one a go.
