Pac-Man is now 35, so try not to feel too old as you browse this anniversary sale

Pac-Man is now 35 years of age and still going strong. Though we're not sold on the TV show and tie-ins, we've seen plenty of amazing celebrations this year including the Google Maps hijack and even stealing the side of SEGA's building.

Anyway, try not to feel too ancient as you browse this new GamersGate sale, which is full of tasty deliciousness. You look great, by the way. Have you lost weight?

Hellblade dev diary shows development challenges

As fans of Heavenly Sword and dev team Ninja Theory, we can't wait to get our hands on Hellblade. The studio is aiming for a AAA action title, but made by a smaller team with a tiny budget. It's an ambitious project, and they have been very open with their approach since announcing the game and have shown us multiple dev diaries from incredibly early stages of the game.

Today's diary shows how the team have been creating multiple small 'vertical slice' demo for playtesters and the press. With a refreshing display of honesty, they freely admit that the first few were not great and left playtesters frustrated. With the latest build set to be shown to members of the press before E3, they have their fingers crossed that they have improved.

There's no set release date for Hellblade, and with such a small team, we'd be surprised if it happened this year. As with any game though, we'd rather wait until the game is ready than play a malnourished product. Enjoy the video below and be sure to head to their site to see past entries in the series.

Project CARS Limited Edition shifts down to £24.49/.99 on PC today

If that grabs you and you fancy playing the graphically superior PC version (so long as you have an NVIDIA GPU), the limited edition of Project CARS is now just £24.49, which includes a Steam code for the base game plus five extra cars.

H1Z1 bans 25000 cheaters, then demands public YouTube apologies

Daybreak Game Company has finally put their back into swinging the H1Z1 banhammer, resulting in 24,837 cheaters being evicted from the zombie sandbox. It's not before time, but what's more interesting than the bans is the way they're dealing with the follow-up.

See, cheaters can still get their accounts restored, and all Daybreak asks is a public apology.

Life is Strange Episode 3 - Chaos Theory Review

Coming in late? Be sure to check out my spoiler-free reviews of Episode 1 and Episode 2.

I expected the dramatic conclusion to Episode 2 to be the catalyst that would drive the series' pace forward with a much needed boost. More so with questions about the events at Arcadia Bay's school and the strange events around town being no closer to getting answered.

The first part of Episode 3 starts with Max and Chloe breaking into the school Principal's office. To get through the locked door, you have to sneak through the school at night to find a few items. It feels a bit by the numbers really, with only bonus photo maintaining my interest.

Life is Strange Episode 3 - Chaos Theory Review

Later in this segment, you'll need to evade the security guard to make your escape, which given the fact you can rewind time, isn't exactly difficult. From here the pace again drops dramatically as you hang out with Chloe the day after and talk to her mum, filling in little details that are eventually important, so try to pay attention.

Max Payne 3 only £3.74 on PC today

Max Payne 3 deserves a place in any shooter fan's collection, especially as it's only £3.74 on PC today.

While not a massive departure from the old games, we still have a dark soft spot in our hearts for Max's bullet time shootouts. Moving to Rio to escape his problems in New York was never going to be enough for Max to appease his inner-demons, especially when he's so keen to fuel them with never ending booze. It's the story arc that really made the game stand out for me, but the action and atmosphere entertains throughout too.

Grovel before M. Bison's Psycho Power in new Street Fighter V trailer

Stop the presses: M. Bison will appear in Street Fighter V. Along with his henchman Captain Obvious.

We're not sure why Capcom felt the need to officially confirm a character who was always going to show up hell or high water, but there's no denying that the game is shaping up nicely. Grovel before his psycho power!

NOT A HERO Review | Cutthroat Politics

In a way, I wish all election campaigns were this interesting, but I suppose the murder is somewhat of a downside. Kinda.

The plot of NOT A HERO is as ridiculous as they come. You take control of a group of characters working for BunnyLord – a time traveller from the future – helping their bid to become the Mayor of England at the next election. The best way to do this is to “killing bad guys in the face” as the voters love that sort of thing (apparently) and so begins a political campaign filled with carnage, mayhem, and exotic milkshake flavours.

Using a roster of nine characters, each with their own unique abilities and exaggerated personalities, players must navigate crime-filled tower blocks and complete objectives. What separates it from other 2D shooters is the cover mechanic, which allows characters to avoid enemy fire before popping back out to unleash some bullet-based justice. The end result is as hilarious as it is challenging. And infuriating.

Project CARS devs issue statement over harebrained NVIDIA vs AMD conspiracy theories

Project CARS is utterly gorgeous, but it favours NVIDA GPUs in terms of visuals and performance. Despite this clearly being an issue with AMD's drivers, many players proceeded to accuse Slightly Mad Studios of somehow crippling the game on AMD systems, perhaps after accepting a hefty bribe.

Slightly Mad have now spoken out on the technical forums to put the tin foil hat speculation to bed.

Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited trailer boasts multiplayer adventuring

We love a bit of Skyrim, Dragon Age: Inquisition and Witcher III, but they can be such lonely affairs. So we can't wait to band together with our friends and explore the huge world of The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited. Today's new trailer leans heavily on the multiplayer angle with talks of guilds, factions and exploring with friends.

Don't forget, Tamriel Unlimited has dropped subscription fees, so you'll not have to pay a monthly fee to play online. Also, rumours that you won't be able to play a preowned copy on consoles turned out to be false, so you can always trade it in down the line if it's not for you. Anyway, enjoy the trailer and we've rounded up the cheapest prices on all formats below too for the June 9th console release and PC version, which is out now.
