PS3 360 Price Comparison | Metro: Last Light Review

Metro Redux is a fantastic new way to experience Metro 2033 and Metro: Last Light on new-gen consoles, but if you've yet to take the plunge, your wallet will thank you. Amazon and Tesco will sell you a copy of Last Light at a £5 saving, which is a great price for this grim and unrelenting experience.

The Xbox 360 version is also available for £7.00 from Tesco. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!

Infinite Space III: Sea Of Stars | IndieGameStand | £0.63 minimum (RRP: £6.99)
Blast From The Past: Strange Adventures In Infinite Space

The Strange Adventures In Infinite Space series heavily influenced FTL as the original permadeath space odyssey, providing an entire procedurally generated galaxy to explore, loot, conquer and constantly surprise you in the space of a lunch break. The first two games were utterly superb and I have little doubt that the third will surpass them. The early access Steam build is currently only $1 -- 60p -- so get in on the ground floor.

Alternatively, pay £1.05 to also receive the first two games in the series. Thanks to TehJumpingJawa @ HUKD!

Next Week’s Releases – Space ninjas, dancing and teleporting

We’re getting awfully close to gaming’s silly season and there are a lot of games arriving in the coming months. So, we’re starting a weekly release roundup running through the new titles in the week ahead, with a bit of information about the games that will be appearing in the New Release section of your local retailer or digital store. Be sure to check out the links too for deeper coverage via our reviews and features.

September 2nd

Next Week’s Releases – Space ninjas, dancing and teleporting

Warframe (XO)

Warframe has been out for a while now on the PC and PS4 and the FTP title is coming to the Xbox One early next week. Be warned, this third-person shooter/slicer has a very grindy start that isn’t for everyone as you’ll struggle to shake the feeling you need to pump actual money into the game to get any decent weapons and upgrades.

Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon 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!

I've lost count of the number of times that we've run a deal for this fantastic collection over the years, but that shouldn't detract from the fact that it really is a fantastic collection. The Commandos games are hardcore strategy titles with real personality, a proper blast from the past. And £1.99 is a screaming deal. Thanks to Nicko1387 @ HUKD!

After trying out the latest build at 4K resolution and on the Oculus Rift, I caught up with lead producer Pete Morrish for a chat about the new title and what sets it apart from other racers.

New RTS, Old-School flavour

Eugen Systems are going back to their roots with their next RTS. Act Of Aggression will serve as a spiritual successor to Act of War, playing much like a classic strategy game of base-building, resource collection and massed conflict with new features and automation. I caught up with Eugen Systems co-founder Alexis Le Dressay for the latest at Gamescom 2014.

The Walking Dead: Season 2 | £7.59 | Steam

I just picked this up myself given that my Xbox 360 version appears to have been overrun by game-breaking bugs. Season 2 isn't quite the tour de force that the first season was, but the taut writing and cracking performances go a long way to making you really care once again about the story of young Clementine, and there are some big decisions to be made along the way.

The last episode just emerged, so you can buy happy in the knowledge that there's no more waiting to be had for the complete experience.

You can also pick up season one for under a fiver.

PREVIEW | Being a Templar has its perks in Assassin's Creed: Rogue

Being a Templar has its perks.

Sure, the Assassins have a noble cause to fight for and a trillion useless collectibles in the vault, but a life on the run wasn't enough for Shay Patrick Cormac. Thankfully the Templars are equal opportunities employers, meaning that even former enemies get immediate access to the latest military technology (including psychotropic drugs and air rifles) subversive experimental gear and insanely generous expense accounts... on the proviso that they agree to track down and murder all their former associates.

And hang out with Haytham Kenway -- who we've already identified as the coolest character in the entire series bar none -- as a bonus. Frankly you'd be mad not to.

Assassin's Creed Unity may be jumping time periods and console generations this Christmas, but for those who haven't yet invested in a PS4, Xbox One or gaming rig, there's still some unfinished business to take care of.

Everywhere you look these days, there's a new MOBA. It seems a little late for EA to be arriving at the party with Dawngate given the rapid saturation of the genre thanks to studios and publishers wanting to capitalise on the popularity and success of titles such as League of Legends and Dota 2, but Waystone Games are confident that they've got something special on their hands, and have been bandying about the phrase "break the meta" to anyone who will listen.

Assassin's Creed: Rogue will let us play as a Templar and hunt assassins on last-gen consoles this Christmas. With poison bombs. And Haytham Kenway. It's a great premise, but will Rogue be a fitting sendoff for the Assassin's Creed III arc or a game too far for the franchise? I sat down with Ubisoft Sofia producer Karl Luhe to get the latest details on the new features and the party line.

Gourmet Wizard Bacon - Adventures in the Pillars of Eternity Beta #2

We left our fiery Godlike, Garion, and his merry band of personality-less beta backer templates poised on a knife edge last time. Would we admit that we'd allowed the baby murderer to escape, or would we attempt to lie and sow misinformation amongst Medreth and his goons?

To be honest, it all seemed like the perfect setup for a bit of amateurish combat. Only here's the thing... I got slaughtered within 30 seconds the first time wrong.

Thankfully, I'd also forgotten to hit the record button so the scenes of my extreme failure are lost lost. But the point is that modern games and mouse-spamming hack'n'slash titles have made me soft. Diablo III is a perfect example: it's a game you can play incredibly drunk. Or sleepy. Or while doing two other things simultaneously. Pillars of Eternity, like the Infinity Engine games before it, demands one's full attention. And then laughs at you by overruning you with combat boars.

BUT I HAVE FIREBALLS, WILD PIGGEHS! HOW YOU LIKE ME NOW?!

Ahem.

The Last Tinker: City of Colors Review | My Eyes!

Platforms: PS4 (reviewed) | PC

Developer: Mimimi Productions

Publisher: Loot Entertainment

It’s a little sad that I begin most of my platformer reviews by stating what a shame it is that the genre has all but disappeared from modern console line-ups, with only Ratchet & Clank doing their best to keep it alive. But with Insomniac aligning their studio closer to Xbox nowadays, it may be a while before the duo return. Let’s not talk about Knack either.

So, when browsing this week’s releases I was pleasantly surprised to see a new IP amongst the PSN releases and a quick trailer search later revealed it to be a new platformer. One download later and I’m in the world of The Last Tinker: City of Colors.

The Last Tinker: City of Colors Review | My Eyes!

But, where’s the jump button? I just hold R2 to run and I’ll just ‘platform’ automatically? What!? So much for rekindling the platformer genre. To be fair, I should have known this game was aimed at a very young audience thanks to the mega-bright hyper-coloured visuals. We’ve nothing against games aimed at the younger kids though here at Dealspwn, as anything that eases new gamers in should be applauded, which is certainly the best way to look at this action-sort-of-platformer.

PREVIEW | Lara Croft And The Temple Of Osiris feels more like Tomb Raider than Tomb Raider

Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider reboot was brilliant, but it wasn't really Tomb Raider, was it? Our heroine schizophrenically flipped between helpless and murderous at the drop of a cutscene, there was a distinct lack of tombs to raid (not to mention Keeley Hawes) and the whole gritty thing took itself far too seriously to take seriously. Grit. Grit happened.

Rise Of The Tomb Raider may have dominated the Gamescom headlines for all the wrong reasons, so thankfully the other Crystal Dynamics studio are quietly beavering away at a follow-up to Lara Croft And The Guardian Of Light, which can never be accused of taking anything seriously. Lara Croft And The Temple Of Osiris may be a puzzly shooty platformy cooperative romp for four players, not a purebred action platformer like its predecessors, but it feels like the Tomb Raider titles of old.

Because, quite simply, it's bringing the fun back to the franchise. Along with a billion spike pits, hot pants, loads of priceless ancient Egyptian superweapons and massive arguments after griefing your mates and stealing their gems. It's ridiculous, frequently stupid and absolutely ruddy brilliant. Tell your butler to fetch your dual pistols and let's take a closer look.

PREVIEW | Racing gets all MMO’d with World of Speed

Slightly Mad Studios are a little busy these days. Made up of developers responsible for bringing some of the better racing tiles of recent memory, the team is currently working of Project CARS for current-gen consoles, but that is not all they’re cooking up. They also happen to be working on World of Speed – an online team-based racing title for PC that will be completely free, and I got hands-on with it at this year’s Gamescom.

Unlike most racing games where being the first across the finish line is the main aim, WoS introduces objectives into each race to mix things up. These range from hitting several long drifts, to achieving perfect corners, to slip-streaming another car for a specific period of time, all over the course of the race. The thing is, the developers were quick to point out that no one racer could effectively complete all the objectives in a single competitive race, and so this is where the team aspect comes into play.

Global transfers, realistic AI, eSports & more

Blood Bowl 2 is bringing more than snazzy 3D graphics to the experience. Packing a new transfer system, revamped race-specific AI, deep campaign designed in close collaboration with Games Workshop, retooled economy, streamlined mechanics and more, it's clear that the ambitious sequel plans to be bigger in every way. Perhaps even a major eSport.

After attending a presentation at Gamescom, I naturally had to know more, so thankfully the lead designer was on hand to explain all of Blood Bowl 2's new features and how they've been carefully designed from the ground up in line with player feedback.
