Old school gamers can grab the classic that is Alien Vs Predator Classic 2000 on PC for just 86p from the DotEmu website. The game is DRM free so there is no need for any clients to play this, you just download and play.
UPDATE: The DLC packs are now available to download.
The 3rd and 4th free DLC bundles have been released for The Witcher 3 by CD Projekt Red.
The two DLC packs are available on the Playstation Store, Xbox Store and PC now.
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):
The Turtle Beach Ear Force PX11 Headset combines awesome game sound with crystal-clear chat on Xbox LIVE, PlayStation Network, or PC/Mac for a more immersive experience. Built for comfort over long play sessions, the Turtle Beach Ear Force PX11 Headset gives you the Turtle Beach Audio Advantage.

PC gaming doesn't have to be expensive, as long as you know what you are looking for. For those that aren't tech savvy, the endless combinations of components can be quite daunting. Trying to figure out which components will work with which, as well as making sure the end result will give you a decent gaming experience can prove a little too much for some.
Which is why I have put together a list of compatible components together for you, that will tackle some of the latest games at 45/60 frames per second at 1080p! Even on some of the most demanding games available today on their higher settings. There are lots of combinations I could use for this, although on this occasion I have chosen to go with a PC based around an AMD FX6300 CPU, it’s well equipped for gaming and comes in at a very affordable price point.

Bionic Dues is a fascinating blend of roguelike, strategy game and mech customisation; giving you fifty days to save a city from a robotic army with a squad of varied EXOs. Your choice of missions, not to mention successes and failures, ultimately determines the massive battle you'll face once the clock counts down. It's utterly superb, and better yet, it's also cheap as chips on IndieGameStand, who also sell directly alongside their pay what you want promotions. Check out our full editor's choice review for more details.
Deadly Premonition is shonky, bare-bones, incredibly weird and absolutely one of the best games of the last console generation. This Lynchian masterpiece tells one of the best stories ever delivered by a videogame, through some of the most memorable and damaged characters you'll ever encounter in the medium. It's chilling, uncanny, surprisingly vast, packed with personality and quite frankly essential for any Twin Peaks/Alan Wake fans out there.
And it's 90% off until 16:00 this afternoon. Go get it!
Following on from our video earlier today, we continue our look at the current build of Star Citizen's Arena Commander by checking out the racing mode. Carl attempts to put the pedal to the metal by taking the Origin Jumpworks 350R for a spin in the recently unlocked gametype, gawping at the floating prefabs and trying not to crash, before seeing how he fairs in an online race against other players. The results are... messy. Don't take my word for it - give it a watch and see for yourself.
If you missed it earlier, be sure to check out our video which takes a look at the roster of ships currently available in Arena Commander.
Risk Of Rain really is a superb little game, offering frenzied old-school run & gun platforming with compelling Rogue-ish progression. Deployed onto a hostile planet as one of a bevy of unique classes, you'll race to blast through hordes of foes in procedurally-generated levels as the difficulty inexorably mounts up over time, constantly weighing up grinding with the need to keep pushing forward. Loads of unlockables and sensational replayability make it an absolute steal, as we explain in our Editor's Choice review.
Update: The listing is no longer available.
Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is a self-contained bundle of 80s awesomeness; taking everything we loved about Far Cry 3 and making it more radical than we'd ever dreamed possible. Michael Biehn, D&D references, Long Tall Sally and epic laser dinosaurs make this an essential play for shooter fans - and an proper bargain at £2.49.
Shame about Uplay, though. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!

One of the earliest Early Access games is also one of the very best, and ironically most content-complete. You're tasked with building rockets in a brutally realistic simulator, watching a thousand embarrassing crashes before finally creating something that can break the atmosphere. Which is where the real fun begins. Part edutainment, part puzzler, part simulator and all awesome, this will keep you going for a long-haul. Save a tenner with GMG's Z4364W-7MR5WA-N5BCOO voucher code.

State Of Decay may have a limited budget and plenty of rough edges, but it's still one of the best zombie games ever made in our opinion. It forces you to own your decisions and consequences, taking care of an entire community who rely on your leadership in real-time. I can't recommend it enough (so long as you can handle the intense stress), and Steam's £5.09 deal price is very competitive indeed.
Digital distributors tend to chuck around Metro 2033 deals like a game of discount hot potato, which has temporarily come to rest over at GamersGate. This apocalyptic FPS frustrated many gamers with its gruelling difficulty and awkward stealth, but delighted many others with its consistent vision of a subterranean society. Dave Brown voted it his Game Of The Year back in 2010, so it's well worth checking out at a paltry £1.99 if you enjoy a challenge.

You've had plenty of chances to grab FTL for peanuts over the last couple of years, but The Humble Bundle are currently undercutting Steam's 'deal' price for the magnificent randomly-generated space adventure at one of the lowest levels we've seen. Outside of shortlived GOG sales, that is.
Typing Of The Dead: Overkill is absolutely brilliant. Yes, it's just a lightgun game that swaps the lightgun for typing words on a keyboard. Yes, it's crass. Yes, it's rude. Yes, a thousand times yes, but that's why we love it Better yet, you can get it for £3 at Green Man Gaming with their P36EYA-K5JYKT-ABO7X9 voucher code.

Our in-depth and ever-growing review continues for WildStar - because if you're going to do something, you may as well drag it out for several weeks. Or do it properly considering the size of the game. Yes - let's go with that one. If you're a latecomer to the party that is my review, or if you're a swine who has been all like "MMOs? Nah," then I suggest you SHUT THE HELL UP and check out the convenient hub I've provided below for you to click on.
One of the biggest complaints about MMOs in general is the crafting and economy elements. Cries of “it’s too complicated!” or “it’s too boring!” can be heard from across the interwebs, as a large percentage of those that try it will simply go “nah, it’s not for me” before becoming a hoarder of all the crafting materials they can find, vendoring away at the earliest opportunity. Thankfully, Carbine have created mechanics that are not only varied in nature, but far more hands-on than first glance, providing a multiple levels of depth depending on the comfort zone of the player.
I won’t go all FAQ here with the details (if you want that you can find my rather in-depth article on it here) so I’ll give a quick overview - It’s the usual affair of selecting two professions out of the bunch that are available, some of which are better paired than others, while everyone has the ability to cook (labelled as a ‘hobby’ activity.) The strong theme with these crafting elements is that of player choice, providing players with the ability to customise items with stats needed for specific roles (or, if things are being made to order, with a specific balance of stats for maximum class build efficiency.)Click here to read more...
'Reboot' doesn't have to be a dirty word. Shadow Warrior is a proper old-school FPS, a riotous full-fat romp with huge guns and hordes of enemies to point them at. Not to mention a katana and one of the best first-person melee combat systems we've ever seen. A steal at £4.99, and you don't have to register on Steam if you don't want to. Expires at 18:00 this evening.
