You should be playing Pillars Of Eternity this weekend - Champion Edition falls to £18.89 today only

I reviewed Pillars Of Eternity yesterday and quite frankly I wish I was still playing it now. "Pillars Of Eternity is a masterpiece and nothing less than essential for anyone who's ever heard of the Infinity Engine," I wrote, dribbling all over the keyboard with barely-surpressed lust. "Superbly written, expansive yet rich and detailed, tactical and thought-provoking, it's the sort of roleplaying experience that we've been dreaming about for years."

It's amazing. Amazing.

So basically, you need to get on it. Hard. Currently it's available on Steam and Green Man Gaming, though today only you can grab  the Pillars Of Eternity Champion edition for just £18.89. Use the CDKeys Facebook voucher code for the £1 discount, which you can get by clicking the widget at the top of the store page. You'll get plenty of extras into the bargain.

Get Assassin's Creed: Freedom Cry for £2.99 in the Get Games Weekend Sale

GOG launches 20 Gaming Fundamentals Sale

Or alternatively titled: GOG recycle the same Topware and Night Dive sale they always run every few weeks.

Still, worth a look. There are plenty of genuine and niche classics on here including Earth 2150, Septerra Core, Wings and Rocket Ranger, all at rock-bottom prices. The Two Worlds titles are especially cheap.

Halo Online is free to play, coming to PC and looks surprisingly good

Beta launching in Russia, global launch not ruled out

Halo Online has been officially announced by Microsoft Studios as a free-to-play PC shooter, and it looks... pretty good.

Relatively speaking, of course. There looks to be plenty of maps, it runs on the prettied-up version of the Halo 3 engine and there will be a bevy of armour customisation options. Halo Online will soon be going into closed beta, though unfortunately, only in Russia.

Let's watch the trailer and get things rolling.

Game of Thrones Episode 3: The Sword In The Darkness Review | "The Best Episode Yet"

I have to hand it to Telltale – releasing Episode 3 with absolutely no build-up via the usual channels was a very welcome surprise, but then again having to wait extended periods between releases is probably the reason why. I just hope that, with the TV show returning soon, it doesn’t become an excuse to drag out the wait (something Tales from the Borderlands’ players have had to suffer with.) Anyway, before we dive into our review for The Sword In The Darkness, here’s some links to our reviews of Episode 1: Iron From Ice, and Episode Two: The Lost Lords. As always with our episodic reviews, our score will be published once the season is finished, reflecting the game as a whole.

Despite some moments of progression, I felt that Episodes 1 and 2 were more about the setup of the story than anything, building up the world of Westeros before things inevitably come crashing down. While Episode 3 still continues that trend to a degree, there is definitely a sense of moving forward this time around. Choices appear to be more diverse, and actions from previous episodes are finally coming back to haunt the player. Perhaps most importantly, while the other episodes have done a great job in replicating the feel of the show, Episode 3 is the closest Telltale have come to nailing it perfectly, all of which makes The Sword In The Darkness the best instalment so far.

Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered is now £3.50 on PC (Steam code)

Fancy sampling some of David Cage's early work? Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered is now only £3.50 on PC.

One of Quantic Dreams' first bizarre psychological thrillers -- and one of the best, in my opinion -- has been remastered with HD visuals and controller support. Though things go off the rails towards the end, I'd highly recommend it. Big props to jaystan for yet another great find!

Battlefield: Hardline Multiplayer Tips

After easing ourselves in though Battlefield: Hardline's campaign (so much better than the last two games!), we've been hitting the servers pretty hard since launch. We've been impressed with how stable the online action has been and it looks like Visceral have learned from DICE's mistakes in Battlefield 4. So you've no excuses to not get the most from the online action. However, life as a cop or criminal can be seriously tough out there. So why not improve your chances by checking out our Battlefield: Hardline multiplayer tips.

Battlefield: Hardline Multiplayer Tips

Fire in bursts

Hardline's assault rifles have a mean kick to them and sustained firing causes your crosshair to dance around the screen making distant targets difficult to hit. You don't necessarily need to adjust the firing mode of your assault rifle to burst fire, just manually fire in shorter bursts and you'll notice how much easier it is to maintain a steady aim and not have to worry about reloading to finish of a single opponent.

Life is Strange Season Pass £13.59 on PC

Save yourself a few quid by picking up Life is Strange season pass on PC for just £13.59.

Episode two was released this week and I was seriously impressed with episode one. Here's a sample of my reviewAn intriguing start for Dontnod’s leap into episodic gaming. Chrysalis is very much a scene setter, easing us in gently to a host of intriguing characters and ensuring we get to grips with the rewind mechanic before we’re asked to make any seriously tough choices. As long as the momentum continues to build pace, this could turn out to be something special.

Take a look at Carl's new Backseat Gamer series too as he and Becky play the game together. Here's Part 1 and Part 2.
