The Square Enix blowout over at Greenman Gaming continues with the Just Cause catalogue the focus of this gaming sale:
You will be required to use the discount code 'GET20P-ERCENT-OFFNOW' for the prices listed above.
I'm slightly concerned regarding the guys over at Greenman Gaming with them still rocking out their birthday celebrations. I feel a massive gaming hangover (the worst type) coming along sometime soon!
Today has a handful of new titles added to their flash sale with some great titles at even better prices:
Obviously at these prices stock is limited so you will need to be quick to grab a bargain.Click here to read more...
Just Cause 3 is expected to release this year, and it's looking ridiculous to boot, but there's still plenty of time to catch up with its amazing sequel. Just Cause 2 is still one of the most anarchic, ridiculous and plain fun sandbox games ever made, and better yet, you can get it for under £2.
Use voucher code H3U5TZ-9726D1-JIPSHC. Remember that there are loads of mods available too. Thanks to Jesse148 @ HUKD!
It's a great way of getting three great games -- Tomb Raider, Sleeping Dogs and Just Cause 2 -- at a great discount, but be aware that Tomb Raider is currently free to download on Xbox Live for Gold Members. Thanks Buzz!
The Just Cause games are fantastic, and MASSIVE. Seriously, if you're having a bit of a frugal Christmas and just want a game or two on the cheap to sink into that's going to give you excellent value for your money, check these two cracking action titles out. Also includes all of the DLC for both games.
Just Cause 3 is looking... well... it's looking pretty Just Cause-y to be honest, if these rumoured screenshots of the Xbox One debug build are anything to go by. They don't reveal a huge amount apart from mountains, expansive landscapes, Rico shooting at traffic, and the purchasing of cars.
Eurogamer have managed to verify at least one of the images, more on that in a bit, but have your pinches of salt at the ready anyway.
I'm still yet to 100% Just Cause 2 -- I doubt now that I ever will -- but that hasn't stopped it being one of my favourite games in recent years, nor has it prevented us here at Dealspwn Towers craving a third instalment. Avalanche are being very coy, and no doubt focusing most of their efforts on Mad Max, but the return of Rico Rodriguez must surely be a priority for them.
We need him back, badly.Click here to read more...
Another day, another set of games heavily discounted over on the Humble Store. Today's highlights see Just cause 2 available for under two quite, Batman: Arkham Origins for under £8, and a slew of awesome indie titles such as Bastion, Godus, and The Cave all with 70% or so knocked off of the usual price.
As per usual, you've only got a few hours to nab these games at the current prices.
We're back with yet another episode of Challenge Carl! Having bested Titanfall with a Joystick and assassinated his way through Broforce, this week Carl was asked by Dealspwn regular Zeipher to make his way across the island on Panau in Just Cause 2, but without touching the floor.
That's right - it's hot lava time!
Highlights include Carl attempting to scale the mountain, demonstrating that hubris can lead to bitter failure, and proving that the residents of Panau or all idiots... or at least they are when they are in their cars.Click here to read more...
Sony have gone big with a new PSN sale boasting discounts for over fifty games on the network, from older classics such as Tomb Raider, Crash Bandicoot, and Hitman, to newer marquee titles such as Uncharted 2, Rain, Tokyo Jungle, and God of War HD.Check out the full list after the jump >>
Avalanche Studios’ Christofer Sundberg has suggested that used games have become an issue because developers are making games that don't offer enough replayability.Click here to read more...
We've been banging on about how brilliant Panau is as an action-adventure sandbox world in our latest PWNcast, so it's fitting that you can put our opinion to the test for less than three quid. Just Cause 2 is utterly epic value for the price, and packs quality to boot.
AVAST YE SCURVY DOGS! ARRRRRRRR ME HEARTIES! Yep, we're allowed to talk about Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag; so we do. At length.
We also chat a little bit about Crystal Dynamics' excellent job of creating a world begging to be explored in Tomb Raider, and discuss some of our favourite action game worlds.
Parental Advisory: We've tried to keep it as conversational and informal as possible, and you should be warned that there may be a few instances of strong language.

Just Cause may as well be called "just 'cos", seeing as that seems to be the general design ethic. Rappelling onto moving cars with a grappling hook/parachute combo? Blow up everything? Drive around paradise? Steal helicopters? Skydiving? Completely forget what mission you were supposed to be doing because you spot a shifty bunch of locals? Why not? Get involved.

If you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber, I'm afraid that there's little chance of you getting anything done this month. Sony has added two massive sandboxes to the Instant Game Collection: enormous island-hopping Just Cause 2 and Gearbox's modern classic Borderlands.
Remember that Red Dead Redemption will be added to the collection in September, and that cloud storage is set to increase to a whopping Gigabyte.
Just Cause 2 is fucking huge. Seriously. If you're a completionist looking for a project, then you need to jump on this ASAP. Alternatively, if you're an action nut who's attracted by the idea of rappelling up to a club in a zeppelin, dishing out several cans of whoopass, before base jumping 500 feet, paragliding onto the back of a moving vehicle, and destabilising an oppressive militant regime all before breakfast then this is the game for you! It's also really, really cheap at GamersGate right now.
Steam's Holiday Sale 2011 is in full swing, bringing a host of major reductions that may or may not be the cheapest around. We've done the legwork for you by highlighting the major savings, and we'll be on base throughout the next few days to save you some money on the run-up to Christmas.
By far the best deal of the day is Orcs Must Die!, which is down to a frankly stupid price of £2.99. Buy this sensational tower defence hybrid immediately.
Otherwise, some decent savings on the Portal series, Metro 2033 and Just Cause 2 round out the package. These deals will expire this afternoon to be replaced by a new batch, and we'll keep you updated by the wire.
Eagle-eyed reader Tsung also reminds us:
"Don't forget to add their great gift giveaway, you might be able to bag a free game today just by signing in and looking at your gifts page (little envelope top right corner of steam app). Play games like Orcs Must Die for achievements to win prizes or a lump of coal. 7 Lumps of coal = another prize."
PC gamers can get hold of Just Cause 2 at a bargain price thanks to a 24 hour deal from Gamersgate. The deal means that you can get the Rico’s latest carnage-based tropical adventure with a saving of £2.50 over the next cheapest retailer at Amazon. For the price, it’s a great way to experience some throwaway action as you can commandeer any vehicle on the huge island of Panau, although some gamers may have a bit of a time getting used to the somewhat clunky control scheme. Be sure to give Matt’s review a gander for the full scoop. Remember, this deal will expire at 7am on Sunday morning! Thanks to Darkle @ HUKD!
Over a quid cheaper than the nearest competitor, and very handy indeed if you missed out on the Asda/Sendit price before it went back up again, we've got a big soft spot for the adventures of Rico Rodriguez. Anarchic, explosive, over the top fun, Just Cause 2 is an enormous game and yet still proves just as entertaining in short bursts as it does in marathon stints. Nice one goonertillidie!
I can't really sing Just Cause 2's praises highly enough. Sure, it doesn't particularly offer a gripping story, and yes there are more polished and well made sandbox games. It won't win any awards for particularly outstanding design, exceptional satire or American nostalgia, but for five quid you'll get weeks of fun out of it.
It's also worth noting that you can still pick up the original for £2, and all week you'll be able to download every single Square-Enix title you can find on Steam for under £50.
You might have been surprised to see Just Cause 2 sneaking onto one or two of our Game of the Year lists for 2010...but you shouldn't have been. Rico's second outing is a huge step up from the first game, and I mean huge. The island paradise of Panau will take you weeks to explore as you go around overthrowing dictatorships, ferreting out rebels, backflipping out of helicopters and parachuting around blowing things up. It's been cheaper than this, briefly ducking under the tenner mark round the festive season, but quite frankly for the amount of gameplay you'll get out of it, this was a bargain at £30! A manly high-five to scudstrike at HUKD.
