The latest and final batch of the 16 free DLC pieces from CD Projekt Red has been announced today via Twitter and could well be a new lease of life to the title for those with a full completion under their belts. "New Game+" is to be added to The Witcher 3 according to a statement posted on Twitter today. Unfortunately the DLC isn't quite ready just yet, with the studio having stated that it currently needs a bit more time.
NG+, the final FREE DLC, is on the way! Stay tuned. Won’t happen this week - we need a bit more time to finish it. pic.twitter.com/jheuPi94wc

Should you feel slightly unsure of what "New Game+" actually is. You may recall something similar when playing a title such as Borderlands 2 (known as "True Vault Hunter Mode"), where upon completion you are offered a chance to re-start the game again at the same level you completed it, carrying all inventory items, money and proficiencies with you from the your first playthrough.Click here to read more...
I'm not quite sure what of this to be honest. Arnold Schwarzenegger (or more specifically, The Terminator) has been added to the WWE 2K16 line-up as a pre order bonus according to a press release from publisher 2K. Players who pre-order this years entry from any participating retailers will have the option to play one of two available T-800s. The first one is from the original Terminator movie back in 1984, with Terminator 2: Judgement Day being the second option.Click here to read more...
While the decidedly average combat and alarming number of technical gremlins are disappointing for a title that's been in development for so long, The Witcher III: Wild Hunt is still a must-buy title for genre fans. The Northern Kingdoms is vast and beautiful setting, packed with unique adventures and touching tales that you'll find away from the beats of the main story. A title to truly lose yourself in. - The Witcher III: Wild Hunt Review | An unpolished classic?
This is one of those situations where I actually hope I am talking to myself by both sharing this deal and typing these words. Everybody has played The Witcher 3 by now, haven't they? If you haven't you really should be hanging your head in shame. It's this year's masterpiece. Get it!
The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited has made great improvements since its release on PC back in April of last year. It's very much a more enjoyable experience and is an absolute bargain at only £9.45 given it's removal of monthly subscription fees.
Tamriel Unlimited is neither a great Elder Scrolls game nor an MMORPG for the ages, but it's something else entirely. An addictive if often awkward compromise with an astonishing amount of quality subscription-free content.Click here to read more...
Evolve was never going to be justified on its release at RRP, it isn’t the best game presented to us this year, but it’s finally under that £10 mark, finally giving it some value.
Four Moto Racer games for 66p? Come on petrol-heads, that's a definite no brainer isn't it? The Moto Racer Collection from IndieGala weighs in at just 66p ($0.99) and contains:

Codemasters have jumped straight into pole position on this weeks official UK game charts. Launching last week on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC, F1 2015 has seen an impressive 367% uprise over last year's launch week sales, whilst Rocksteady's Batman: Arkham Knight sees sales slide 54% in it's 3rd week on sale.
Let's do some name dropping. Telltale Games and Mojang alone should be enough to guarantee success with a video game shouldn't they? I mean after all Mojang have created possibly the most successful sandbox game of all time, and well Telltale Games just seem to turn anything they touch into a sure fire winner.
We now need to add the names Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West, and Paul Reubens into this gaming equation (heads beginning to blow yet?) and we have the full creative team and the cast for the Minecon 2015 announced Minecraft: Story Mode.

Lara Croft And The Temple Of Osiris is a superb cooperative puzzler, pacey shooter and a rip-roaring adventure. The replayable campaign is a bit too short to make the most of the abundance of loot, but it's a blast while it lasts especially in local co-op.
It feels good to be having fun and raiding tombs again. Just try not to "accidentally" blow up too many of your friends over the Christmas break. - Lara Croft And The Temple Of Osiris Review | Tomb Raiding Is Fun Again
Playstation 4 and Xbox One owners with The Witcher 3 should soon expect patch 1.05 which includes the following fixes:
"Bereft of a new-gen equivalent, F1 2014 is a stopgap game thrust into the spotlight that takes last year's version, strips back the Classic content, and adds in this year's cars. With the right setup, you can still get a pretty thrilling ride out of it, but to be honest you're best ignoring this hasty knockoff and investigating next year's effort instead." - F1 2014 Review | Old Model, Missing Parts (4/10)
OK, so it's not the best F1 game released on the PC but at £3.59 it's got to be worth something to put you on until F1 2015 which releases 10th July, hasn't it?
Following on from our story on Saturday it may seem that Fallout 4 director Todd Howard was actually only referring to the Xbox One and Playstation 4 versions of Fallout 4 when he stated "It is 1080p on everything," before continuing to announce that it would run at 30fps and not 60.
Fallout 4 is 1080p & 30fps on Xbox One and PS4. Resolution and FPS are not limited in any way on the PC.

Bethesda have today confirmed via Twitter that Fallout 4 on the PC will indeed run with no capping involved on frame-rates stating "resolution and FPS are not limited in any way on the PC."

That's right, Fallout 4 director Todd Howard has announced that "It is 1080p on everything," before continuing to announce that it would run at 30fps and not 60. Mod support has also been confirmed for the PC form of the November 10th release.
Howard was also asked wether we can expect to see mod support make its way to the Playstation 4 platform answering "We will be. Well, we're going to make every effort to. If Sony says no, we won't, but I don't think they will.Click here to read more...

Although lacking productivity whilst doing so, I am really enjoying The Witcher 3 and at only level 4 over the past week all I seem to enjoy doing is checking out the scenery and gathering Parsley (I know, sad).
Make sure to check out The Witcher 3 | My first night in White Orchard which covers my first impressions of The Witcher 3 over the first six hours.
Developed by a team of over 200 members over three long years, CD Projekt RED finally have all their cards on the table with their recent release of The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt. I finally got my hands on my much awaited PS4 copy of The Witcher 3 last night, going on to spend the next many countless hours exploring The Continent. Did The Witcher 3 surpass all my expectations?
Before I do get started with the game in hand, I would like to point out to anybody who is yet to play any of the games in The Witcher series that if you are expecting robe laden woman with pointy black hats then you have come to the wrong party. Although extremely similar in name (and possibly magical weirdness) Witchers are very different to Witches.
The game opens up with a cinematic based in Temeria way back in 1272 which to be quite honest is brutal, extremely brutal. The Empire of Nilfgaard has struck again making movement with intention to conquer The Northern Lands.
In short The Witcher 3 is beautiful, it's emotional and is most definitely the best RPG I have played since Skyrim. My attention was forgiven within seconds of the opening quest objectives after becoming increasingly distracted by the absolutely stunning scenery sitting in the backdrop. Everything is here, the combat system seems flawless with so much depth aimed at using the correct techniques against the relevant enemies reducing any feel of rinse and repeat confrontations. The combat system includes 5 Signs (think Skyrim shouts):
