Need a bit of traditional survival horror to hide away from all this summer sunshine nonsense (or torrential downpours)? Well, it's a good thing we've found a cracking PC deal for The Evil Within then.
The Evil Within is a return to traditional survival horror values with an unforgiving difficulty curve and a serious lack of ammo. Sounds harsh? That's the way the Resident Evil games used to be yanno (before all the zombies got motorbikes and machine guns). If Dark Souls was your introduction to tough gaming, you'll get a kick (and maybe a chainsaw to the face) from The Evil Within, be sure to check out the HD remake of the original Resident Evil too.

There's still three months to go until the latest COD title arrives, but if you're looking to secure a PC copy ahead of its release this deal is the best around by some margin. So far Black Ops III has been making some rather positive noises, with the multiplayer looking like good fun, the inclusion of 4-player co-op in the main campaign, and the promise of larger maps to accommodate for the increased player count. You can learn more about the changes in our article from earlier this year. Thanks to KarnageCentral @ HUKD!
Last week I finally revisited The Secret World. After reviewing it at launch, calling it “a brave new world worth spending time in,” I gradually had less and less time to play it. This was despite former colleague Jon falling head over heels for it, proclaiming his love it again, and again, and again. I could only watch from the sidelines as the intrigue and mystery of its storyline evolved, new systems added to its class-free combat, and new dungeons opened, filled with brutal bosses to beat.
Last week, Funcom released Issue #12: To The Dark Tower Below. The new patch not only added in a new dungeon and open world content, but included new social features, a revamped currency system and daily rewards program. It’s not ground-breaking for the genre, but it’s an important step for The Secret World. You see, it not only gives former players a reason to return, but provides newcomers with the more accessible way to experience the game, as well as catch up with the rest of the community.
Basically, with Issue #12 live on the servers, now is the time to experience one of the most unique MMO properties on the market, and I’m going to explain why.Click here to read more...
Here's a fantastic price for the Limited Edition of Far Cry 4. Yes, when you click through the listing looks like the standard edition, but it's been confirmed you'll get the Limited Edition with this digital purchase. Best of all, you'll be saving a tenner over the next best offer, which is quite the bargain. The Limited Edition comes with the Hurk's Redemption missions, which apparently provides an extra hour of gameplay and a harpoon gun. Despite not quite matching its predecessor, we felt that Far Cry 4 was a "gorgeous, systems-oriented playground that provides endless hours of entertainment. And exploding elephants." Thanks to mrsusan74 @ HUKD!

Funcom are primarily known for their online experiences such as Anarchy Online, Age of Conan, and The Secret World, but today they have released a teaser trailer for a brand new single player experience. The Park, which according to Red Thread Games' Ragnar Tornquist is planted in The Secret World universe, looks to feature a character named Lorraine and "the most terrifying nightmare of her life" at a theme park. The images shown in the teaser should look rather familiar to players of The Secret World, especially for visitors of The Savage Coast. You can judge for yourself by hitting the jump.Click here to read more...
We're only days away from the first big release of 2015's silly season, with Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain launching next Tuesday. To mark its impending release, series creator Hideo Kojima has directed a brand new launch trailer that's special for two reasons. Firstly, it's incredibly nostalgic as it takes a look back at all the major instalments over the last 17 years. Secondly, this is (almost certainly) the last Kojima-directed Metal Gear trailer we'll ever see. As such, we've got both the launch trailer, and the cheapest prices for all systems, for you to check out after the jump.Click here to read more...
If you decided to decline the recent £3 deal for SimCity, congratulations - you've just been rewarded with the appearance of a much better game! After all, we called Cities: Skylines "enjoyable, accessible, & addictive" in our review. It's mainly down to the fact it offers no restrictions in design or size, and even features mod support from the Steam Community (who have delivered some superb add-ons), but the truth is that it's just a fantastic city building simulation, and one we gamers have waited patiently for. If you fancy getting a few extra buildings, the Deluxe Edition adds the Statue of Liberty, the Eiffel Tower, the Brandenburg Gate, the Arc de Triump, and Grand Central Terminal for you to place in your dream metropolis. Thanks to reindeer333 @ HUKD!
With an interim patch hitting the PC version in the near future, now might be the time to take advantage of the low prices, with this listing being the cheapest we've seen. It's a shame really, because the performance issues experienced by many PC gamers ruined what was a brilliant end to Rocksteady's Arkham series. For just over £8.50, it's certainly worth keeping in the Steam backlog until the fixes are deployed. Thanks to Damrock @ HUKD!

Fans of the blue blur can now enjoy ridiculous savings on the PC versions of his games thanks to Gamersgate. Everything - all the way from Sonic 1, all the way to the episodic Sonic 4 - have seen the prices slashed by 75%, and while you can pick up everything by getting the Sonic Collection for £19.50, you can pick and choose from the entire list to play the, well, good stuff. After all, Sonic CD for £1, or Sonic & Knuckles 3 for £1 is pretty tempting... Cheers for Buzz for the find!

Mad Max has been storming down the dusty development highway for years, but it's less than a month away now and we'll finally get to see what the Road Warrior is made of. There'll be a mix of vehicular combat, car customisation, RPG upgrades and hand-to-hand scraps to keep things interesting in the wastelands.

Usually, in the first few months after a Triple A game's release, you're stuck looking at prices awfully close to the RRP. Here at Dealspwn, we're obsessed with chipping those prices down, and this hot preowned deal brings The Witcher: Wild Hunt down to £13.95 on PC, which is £14 cheaper than the next best deal.
The game picked up one of our Editor's Choice awards in my review: "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." Don't forget to keep your eye out for all the free DLC too.Click here for more of our Witcher III articles.
Let's not beat around the bush, here - SimCity was an omnishambles. What promised to deliver a perfected city-building sim with online connectivity was beyond broken. It's such a shame, too, because the user interface is intuitive, the art style visually appealing, and the music an absolute triumph. It does enough to distract you for a good few hours, but even though it ultimately doesn't deliver, for £4 it's worth seeing the agonising potential that was there. Or, you know, you could put the money towards the infinitely better Cities: Skylines. Thanks to Buzz for the heads-up!

The cast of characters for Zombie Army Trilogy has just been doubled in size, with all 8 playable characters from the Left 4 Dead series joining the roster. While the banter between them probably hasn't made the trip over (which is a shame, because Ellis) I suspect players will get a thrill out of scoring a slow-motion headshot with some of the genre's most iconic characters. To celebrate the collaboration between Rebellion and Valve, Steam are holding a weekend sale that knocks 66% off the price for both a single copy and the 4-pack. Considering how the game shines in co-op (especially with friends) I'd recommend finding 3 other zombie-slayers and sharing the carnage. Thanks to jaystan @ HUKD!

FIFA 16 is getting much closer now, so we've rounded up the best prices for you on PS4, Xbox One and PC. Sure, we'd like them to be lower, but EA's footy series seems to hold its price very well around launch, so this may be as good as it gets. Still on the fence about FIFA 16? We have another trailer for you entitled Sights and Sounds, which goes into detail about some elements of the game's presentation. Everything from stadium settings, to crowd chants.Click here to read more...
Castle of Illusion HD starring Mickey Mouse is now only £2.50 on PC today.
Sega's HD remake ruffled a few feathers (well, mine) by daring to add 3D sections to the classic side-scrolling platformer from the glory days of the Sega Mega Drive. That said, this is a nostalgic blast, even if the final boss will make your rage-bleed from your eyes. Those with a calm disposition should give it a go, especially seeing as GetGamesGo are have knocked 75% off their price. For the rest of us, keep your fingers crossed Sega remake the two player World of Illusion without trying to use their imagination as much.
Thanks to jaystan.

Let's not beat around the bush here - Rocket League is a superb eSports experience that is easy to learn, difficult to master, and a hell of a lot of fun to play. Previously only available to PC gamers via Steam, a number of online retailers are now selling Steam keys. While they are going at the RRP of £14.99, GMG's voucher code drops the price down to under £12. With the latest patch adding new matchmaking features & spectator mode, along with the new DLC offering new cars and customisations, now is the right time to get in on the action. If you need more convincing, why not check out myself and GMG's Matt Gardner showing off our incredible (and no way flukey) skills?
The dungeon crawler video game genre really does owe it all to 1985's Gauntlet. The top down multiplayer title has been copied ever since with similar titles in the action/RPG genre, most notably the new genre king, Diablo III, which has built upon Gauntlet's sturdy foundations.
So yes, if you're a retro fan or recently found yourself absorbed by the world of Diablo III on PC or consoles, there's certainly fun to be had with this PS4 update of the recent PC remake. The graphics are slightly shinier than the PC version and there are new items to unlock, but realistically, there's no reason to double dip unless your mates never wanted to play on PC.
As ever, Gauntlet works best with friends, either online or with local co-op. Characters include the typical tropes. The muscled warrior, the charging Valkyrie, the arrow-slinging elf and the spell-casting wizard. The warrior and Valkyrie are your close range bruisers while the other two are much more comfortable at range (terrible at close quarters).Click here to read more...

With Jon now well and truly off in the sunset, I’m afraid you’ll have to put up with me and my Handsome Jack fandom while we finish off the review process for Tales From The Borderlands. Chances are that if you’re reading this you’re already up to speed, but just in case you can check out our reviews for Episode 1: Zer0 Sum, Episode 2: Atlas Shrugged, and Episode 3: Catch A Ride.
Episode 3 provided a high point for the series for many reasons, so the pressure was on for Episode 4 to build upon what we called the best episode so far. In truth, Escape Plan Zero suffers from yet another slow start, but as soon as the introduction begins and To The Top blasts out the speakers you can tell what’s about to happen is going to be something special.
In fact, what we get is nothing short of an emotional roller coaster.
