Once again, PlayStation owners can get hold of Child of Light at a fantastic price thanks to CDkeys (and that's before you even take into account their voucher code.) With it being a cross-buy purchase, it means you'll be able to play it on either PS3 or PS4. In addition to main game, the Deluxe Edition also comes with the Dark Aurora Customization Pack and the Golem Pack DLC, providing more content for this beautifully presented and highly enjoyable turn-based RPG. Thanks to jack831 @ HUKD!

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...
Well folks, this is what you've been waiting for, the full lineup of September's Instant Game Collection for PlayStation Plus subscribers. We already knew one of them from earlier today, the winner of the Vote to Play initiative, Grow Home. Let's take a look at the others.Click here to read more...
This deal for Dragon Ball Xenoverse is the cheapest by far we've seen, saving you at least £13 when compared to the next best deal.
Jon called Dragon Ball Xenoverse, "A Brave Next Step For Anime Videogames" in his review, praising the combat, the deep story and the wealth of content available. The bar has been raised for anime tie-ins. No pressure, Attack on Titan.
Thanks to Ben280.
Fancy a bit of free(ish) money for your PSN account? Look no further than this offer for a £35 Gift Card that will save you £6 overall. Thanks to FantasyDeals @ HUKD!

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.

"Now the citizens of Super Earth can join the epic fight against the enemies of humanity with a physical edition of the game including all DLC add-ons and expansion packs.
The Helldivers are the scalpel of Super Earth's military might. Squads of up to four of these elite soldiers are deployed deep into enemy territory in Hellpods - individual re-entry capsules fired from command ships in orbit."
The usual RRP for £11.99 is certainly worth the price of admission, but this listing will save you a few pounds on that in one of the cheapest prices for Journey we've seen for some time. With it being a Cross-buy title you'll be able to download and play it on PS3 and PS4. We awarded Journey a perfect score back in 2012, describing it as "a game that exhibits pure joy" and that "the end result is something inherently euphoric, deeply personal and, dare I say, even a little bit spiritual as well." Thanks to Aldnoah @ HUKD!
If you have yet to play through one of the best First Person experiences of the last decade, now is the time if you're a PS3 owner. This bundle for all three BioShock titles works out as £4 per game, which is fantastic value when you consider the overall quality of the series. After all, BioShock is still considered a masterpiece, while BioShock 2 is generally thought to be an enjoyable romp that doesn't quite match its predecessor. Meanwhile, Infinite has ended up being a divisive title amongst those who have played it. So, if you've yet to journey to Rapture and Columbia, would you kindly stop slacking and give it a go please? Cheers to oUkTuRkEyIII for the heads-up on this one!
Yakuza 5 is somewhat overdue on these shores. It landed in Japan in 2012 on PS3 and eager fans have been waiting ever since for a Western release. Yakuza 4 was a great game, and is still worth picking up, but for those of us that snapped it up in 2011, the wait is getting unbearable for Sega's latest.
Fortunately, we'll finally see the game release later this year on PS3. We're surprised there's no PS4 version as it would seem like a natural choice for a remaster, but we're more than happy to dust off last-gen for this series. Now, can we have a Western Ryū ga Gotoku Ishin! please, Sega?
For now, you'll just have to whet your appetite with the latest in the dev diary series on Yakuza 5. The main focus seems to be on the extensive research they did on Japanese Hostess Bars (I'm sure they were meticulously studied) and the influences on those brutal brawls. The video is the second in a three part series and the first video is included below too.Click here to read more...
House of the Dead: Overkill is a fun arcade shooter, especially if you have any PS Move controllers (remember them?) at home. Grab a preowned copy today for just £1.99.
If it's been a while since you dusted off the PlayStation Move controller then this is well worth a punt, especially if you have two of them for some multiplayer fun. This is a port of the Wii game with some minor HD polish and optional 3D visuals. There are a few extra stages to spray in hot angry lead too. The game wears its 18 certificate proudly with lots of blood, guts, epic cleavage and more bad language than a Tarentino flick.
Thanks to Blastoise.
Want to see what worlds are waiting for you with Lego Dimensions and it's many add-on packs? Then this is the trailer for you. If that whets your appetite, you'll really want to check out the range of preorders listed below, which are much cheaper than their high street comparisons.
Find out why we're so excited with this article: Lego Dimensions: how the magic of Lego could dethrone Skylanders.
If you've yet to dive into the current gen of consoles, but are still curious about The Evil Within, this latest price drop is worth a look. Overall it will save you around £2-4 depending on your console of choice, and there's a Tesco Clubcard boost for those of you interested in that sort of thing. As we pointed out in our review, The Evil Within is a callback to the survival horror genre of yesteryear, but other than some rather grotesque scares it doesn't really push the envelope. Then again, if that's what you're after, you'll end up loving it. Or screaming at it. Probably both. Cheers to oUkTuRkEyIII for the find!
Be sure to check out The Evil Within review for more details.
We're getting multiple reports that PSN is down again and gamers who are online are reporting downloads taking much longer than usual.
The main issues seem to be affecting Europe, although that could be because other areas of the world like the West coast of the USA are still in bed. Take a look at this map to see the most recent spread of outages.Click here to read more...
It's undeniably terrible, but at this price for a new copy (of the Extermination Edition too), we'd urge you to take a look in a morbid sort of way. Essentially, we had to play it, so you should too damnit!
There's nothing quite like a wave of scathing reviews to smash the price of a game down. The game's campaign is only about six hours long and the co-op struggles to run smoothly enough to bother. But as a basic FPS, it generally works and the iconic weaponry does tick those nostalgic boxes. We know curiosity is going to get the better of you eventually, so you might as well get it as cheap as possible if you want to take a look at this train wreck. Take a look at the Aliens: Colonial Marines review.
Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII.
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is down to arguably its cheapest price yet on PS3 and 360. £9.85 is a great deal and this could see you through the rest of summer.
The Handsome Collection on PS4/XO includes a next-gen version of the Pre-Sequel and Borderlands 2, but most prices are around the £35 mark, which is all sorts of grim for old rope with a smidge of polish. Whereas picking up this version will save you loads, especially if you've already played the hell out of Borderlands 2.
Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII.
My sincerest apologies for the lateness of this review, but as I was on holiday during its release I’ve only just gotten round to reviewing it. Anyway, here’s the usual housekeeping – if you’ve missed our other reviews, you can get up to speed by reading them here: Episode 1: Iron From Ice, Episode Two: The Lost Lords, Episode 3: The Sword In The Darkness, and Episode 4: Sons of Winter. As always with our episodic reviews, our score will be published once the season is finished, reflecting the game as a whole.
While the action begins in a rather tense fashion (which in understandable given the ending to episode 4) the linearity of proceedings early on take away any true feeling of choice. This is yet another example of how the established timeline of the show disrupts anything that could happen in the game, but thankfully once we get past the first chapter the narrative opens up by diverging into uncharted waters. If Episode 4 set up the board for the final charge, Episode 5 pushes them past the point of no return, as it is made very clear that it is now all or nothing for House Forester.Click here to read more...
Parents, do not let your children see this trailer! There's no way they'll not want a piece of Lego Dimensions after seeing this. And how are you going to play it if you have to share with the little blighters?
Today's trailer gives us the biggest look yet at the story for Lego Dimensions, the new name in the toys-to-life genre that we're already trading in our Skylanders and Disney Infinity tat for. The mind-boggling mashup of characters and worlds including Batman, Lord of the Rings, Back to the Future and The Wizard of Oz looks like the sort of toybox-inspired fun that's going to be a blast to play. It's not going to be cheap, but we've hunted down the best deals for preorders if you want to get involved at launch. You'll save a small fortune compared to an impulse buy on the high street too.Click here to see the trailer and deals.
Summer is finally here and while the weather may be wet for many of us, the gaming draught is in full effect as per usual. Fear not though as there's a new summer sale on PSN including lots of hot discounts for PS4 and PS3 titles.

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition has held its value incredibly well since release. But if you need to scratch that itch for the best action RPG on the market, here are your cheapest deals for Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition on consoles.
I'm 70 hours in and yet to get bored with Diablo III. It's the co-op that's really pulled me in, I can't think of a game that I've played more in couch co-op since Street of Rage 2 or Dragon's Crown. With controls perfectly mapped to the controller, this was well worth the wait on consoles and is regularly patched with updates and tweaks that make it worth coming back to time and time again.
