Zangief is now officially coming to Street Fighter V and even has a new trailer. That's not much of a surprise, but the leaked images of a new character certainly are. While yet to be officially announced via a trailer, expect to see Laura in action very soon if these leaked images are anything to go by.
Coming from Famitsu (via Event Hubs) the new leaked screens show the new fighter giving Ryu a beat of a beating. If rumours are to be believed. Laura is a Brazilian fighter and harnesses electrical abilities similar to Blanka. Does this mean the green man beast has been replaced in Street Fighter V?
You can see some more Laura screens and the Zangief trailer below.Click here to read more...
While fans of the long-running anime / manga series might get a kick out of thing one, we found it to be somewhat lacking when we reviewed it last year. Still, if you held off this long to try out 'complete' edition of Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 (with all its additional swimsuit costume glory) it's certainly worth a look for under a fiver. On top of that, you'll be saving over a tenner over the next cheapest deal as well. Thanks to Buzz for the heads-up!
Be sure to check out our Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm 3: Full Burst review for more details.
You can get hold of the standard edition of Shadow of Mordor for just a fiver, but if you're willing to spend a few more pounds you can get hold of all of the DLC as well. The orc-hunting sandbox received high praise last year, and although I felt its open world was somewhat flat, the unique nature of the Nemesis system being backed up by an enjoyable combat system made it one of my favourite games of 2015. For under £8 you should check it out if you have yet to do so.

Project Cars is easily the best multi-platform racing game available, not that the competition is huge. This is a great price for the PC version too This is £8 cheaper than the next best deal.
Project Cars likes to sit more on the simulation side of the track, but there are plenty of driving aids to ease newcomers into the experience and it's incredibly satisfying as you slowly adapt and turn more of them off when you tame the wild vehicles. A worthy alternative to the likes of DriveClub and Forza. Check out Jon's review for more information.
Thanks to BuzzDuraband.
We've featured similar deals for this one in the past, but if you still haven't tried Spec Ops: The Line, you absolutely should at this price. Although it didn't break genre conventions in terms of mechanics, and its multiplayer section was tacked on (as admitted by the developers themselves), Spec Ops: The Line provides one of the most thought provoking action storylines in recent memory. For that reason alone, it’s worth a look at under £4. Thanks to kaylanify @ HUKD!

In what could be this year's most understandable U-turn, Square Enix have cancelled the pre-order initiative for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. It comes after a justifiable outcry by the gaming community over the encouragement to pre-order a game that has shown very little in terms of gameplay so far - not to mention the "earn the game 4-days early" bonus that was downright insulting. The good news is that we gamers get a happy ending with this one, with a statement on the official website confirming that all pre-orders will now include everything that was mentioned in the initiative, along with confirmation that the game will definitely release on February 23rd. We have the statement in full after the jump.Click here to read more...
It's that time of year where developers and publishers push themselves to breaking point in order to meet the all-important Christmas shopping release window. Frankly, it's a pattern that crippled many of last year's biggest games. We'd love to think that lessons have been learned, but with another dementedly-packed season lying just ahead, it's not hard to predict that some of the year's biggest remaining games are going to have some serious issues at launch. They're all games we can't wait to play, but we'd certainly advise waiting for the reviews, or maybe holding out until those unchecked issues have been fixed post-launch. Games are expensive, so preorder wisely.Click here to read more...
After having to replace it with Theme Hospital for a while because of heavy demand, Command & Conquer Red Alert 2 and its expansion are once again On The House. As always, all you need to do is log into Origin, claim the game, and it will be yours to keep. I still regard Red Alert 2 as one of my favourite RTS titles thanks to its varied units and fantastic gameplay balance (not to mention those fantastically hammy FMV sequences between mission.) In short, go and grab this freebie, listen to the glorious tones of the Hell March, and then roll that tank column over your foes like there's no tomorrow.
It only took half a day for it to reach its $500,000 crowdfunding goal, but Divinity: Original Sin 2 finished its Kickstarter campaign in grand fashion yesterday afternoon. Hitting the $2,000,000 mark with just an hour to go, backers unlocked all of the remaining stretch goals to deliver a much larger (and freer) experience than Larian Studio originally planned.Click here to read more...
Following on from the Strength, Perception, and Endurance infomercials, this week Bethesda tells us all about Charisma in Fallout 4. This retro-styled video explains how it will fit into your S.P.E.C.I.A.L. statistical makeup while surviving the wastelands of Boston.Click here to read more...
This is one of the lowest prices we've seen for the PC version of The Phantom Pain. It beats the next cheapest deal by almost a tenner as well, which is a huge saving for a recent release. Did it deliver a satisfying conclusion to the MGS saga? Not really, but as a stealth sandbox it was an amazing achievement. It's a shame PC owners will have to wait until next year for Metal Gear Online, though. Thanks to alastairharmer @ HUKD!
Be sure to check out our Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain review for more details.
This isn't the cheapest price we've seen for Titanfall, but it's the cheapest around for the PC version at the moment. It's also worth mentioning that you'll get all of the Season Pass DLC thrown in for free with this purchase as well, meaning there's plenty of online-shooter content to keep you busy for the price. We're big fans of the mech-based carnage Respawn delivered last year, with its evergreen gameplay perfect for dip-in-and-out multiplayer sessions. Thanks to kaylanify @ HUKD!

This is a great price for Child of Light on PC, especially as most other sites are selling it for over £10.
Child of Light turned out to be an excellent RPG experience thanks to its old-school approach and unique UbiArt watercolour stylings. The game proves that cheap downloadable RPGs can be done right after all. Visually enchanting and featuring a clever twist on classic turn-based combat, this puts many full-sized RPGs to shame. Even with painful rhyming dialogue and generic story, you'll find yourself hooked to the end.
This latest deal for South Park: The Stick of Truth on PC is a very tasty £6.
South Park: The Stick of Truth was well worth the wait and should be picked up immediately by any of you that enjoy the show and old-school RPGs. It can feel a bit basic at times, but the show's trademark humour ensures you'll stick with it for hours on end. Don't worry about the EU censorship cuts as the PC version made it through unscathed and there's plenty of gross-out wrongness to experience. For example, one night I was dodging a giant pair of testicles in a boss fight.
Thanks to jaystan.
Mad Max's PC price continues to fall. If it continues at this rate, they'll have to give it away come January. This deal's made even better today as the Ripper vehicle DLC is now included. You can grab a game key for just £8.97/$13.76. That's almost cheap enough to forgive it being as bland as it is. But I suppose if you're not planning on playing the likes of The Witcher III, Arkham Knight or MGSV, this will appear much better than it really is.

To be honest, I wasn't impressed with Mad Max, as you can see in my review. That said, some fans are really enjoying it so far, and at this price, it might be worth a look if you're looking for a new open world title with sand and waiting as main features. Unlike other recent Warner Bros titles (Arkham Knight, Mortal Kombat X), we've not heard about any serious issues with the PC version, so don't be too cautious about that super low price.
Thanks to geebeegooner.
GTA V has been a big hit on the PC and, unlike the console remasters, we've had some great deals. This price is one of the best we've seen for US and UK gamers.

This new version really is the definitive edition many of us have been waiting for. Hell, it makes the PS4/XO re-releases look rubbish thanks to better textures, a slicker frame-rate and significantly improved lighting. Naturally, there's the pure insanity that the modding community is coming up with and flooding YouTube with too. Take a look at the recent Freemode updates for the online game.
Thanks to mathy.
ARK: Survival Evolved has been a big success this year, shifting over a million copies not long after launch. Today's a great day to jump into the dino adventure as it's in this digital retailer's latest Sale.
ARK doesn't just have you roaming a beautiful tropical location hunting dinosaurs. You can ride the bastards too. Go on, I dare you to find anything more fun to do with your day.
Thanks to Webhead.
Metro Redux offers great value for money by giving two fantastic last-gen shooters a loving remaster and more as listed below. This is a great excuse to catch up on the series.
More than just a visual facelift for the series, Metro Redux has put some extra effort in to tempt a spend. Metro 2033 has extra animations (such as the mask wipe from the sequel) and the weapon handling has been reworked too. Both games are now playable in Ranger and Survival modes too for a harsher challenge. All the Season Pass content for Last Light is included, adding an extra ten hours of single player content. This is well worth a look if you missed out on the games last gen.
Thanks to BuzzDuraband.
If you've been interested in trying out the Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War series but have held off, now is the time to give it a go. Both Dawn of War and Dawn of War II, along with all its DLC, is currently free to play on Steam this weekend. Better yet, if you end up enjoying it you an save a massive 75% on everything available. Newcomers will find the best value in the Franchise Pack, which holds absolutely everything for £24.99, but those of you missing the odd bit of DLC will be able to make a saving as well.
In addition to the free weekend and massive sale for the RTS titles, Relic are giving away some brand new content for free to mark the occasion. You can find details for this, which includes a free map and items for characters, after the jump.Click here to read more...
