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.

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.
It has to be worrying for a game developer wanting to create a game based around the classic 1954 creation Godzilla. I mean where exactly can you go with it, surely there is only a limited amount of content you can include into a title of this nature? Whilst playing this year's entry to the Godzilla series I desperately wanted to find reminiscent similarities to the 1991 SNK release King of Monsters.
Did that happen? Let's find out.
Upon launching Godzilla, you make your way to the title screen where you immediately find yourself thrown into a tutorial with the simple instructions to make your way forward to a TV tower visible just ahead of you, with the simple objective to destroy any buildings in your path. The tutorial is short and simple but manages to cover all the basics such as movement and the various attacks Godzilla is capable of without becoming tedious. Questionably, the turn left and turn right movement have been assigned to the L1 and R1 controller buttons, immediately causing concerns due to the many years of experience with the left analogue acting as my movement tool.
Completion of the tutorial then takes us back to the title screen where several different game modes are now presented to us, including: God of Destruction, King of Kaiju, VS mode. Evolution Mode and Diorama mode. Of course naturally, I headed straight into the God of Destruction mode, not only due to the obvious fact it was Godzilla's story mode, but it sounded quite bad ass and I wanted a piece of that action.Click here to read more...
Been meaning to try out Demon's Souls for a while? Well, you'll want to jump on this £9.99 deal then, which is a few quid cheaper than the next best offer.
Demon's Souls was the one that started it all. All the nasty, abusive, but oh so addictive gameplay which went on to become Dark Souls and of course, Bloodborne. The servers were originally supposed to be turned off years ago, but it's unclear as to how long they were left on. The game's still playable without them, you'll just be missing out on the hints, ghost death replays and invaders.
Thanks to rowan131.
This compilation bundle includes Tales of Symphonia Chronicles and Tales of Graces f for just £10.99. You'd usually expect to pay around £15 each for these, so I'd get on this fast! This is the best price I've seen for the collection too.
This is a seriously good deal, with over 100 hours of excellent action-RPG gameplay from Japan. This is a perfect entry for newbies to the Tales of series and will surely get you hooked for the upcoming Tales of Zesteria. Be sure to check out Tales of Xillia if you like what you play here too.
The US Playstation store has just started a flash sale which includes some great prices. Borderlands: The Handsome Collection on PS4 can be yours for just £19.23 and the Mass Effect Trilogy games starting from just £2.88 for PS3. Full prices are listed below.
Here's one of the lowest prices we've seen for the last-gen console versions of The Pre-Sequel, with Tesco's latest deal working out around £3 better than the next cheapest deals elsewhere. Although it didn't really offer anything particularly new, and the story didn't capitalise upon the potential that was there, it doesn't change the fact The Pre-Sequel is great fun, especially in co-op. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!

"The definitive version of a true modern classic. Steins;Gate presents a truly captivating and uncompromising storyline with exquisite characters, powerful themes and often heartbreaking choices to make."
"It's a beautiful, essential thing." - 10/10 review
What more can I say about Steins;Gate? It's a true modern classic, not just as a videogame or visual novel, but as a work of fiction and a story for the ages regardless of medium. The recent PlayStation Vita and PS3 release delivers the definitive version of this latter-day gem... except that, for true fans, it doesn't.
GAME briefly offered a special edition containing an art book, but Rice Digital are exclusively selling the El Psy Kongroo Edition, which contains a Metal Upa collectible and two pins in a presentation case as well as the aforementioned special edition in its entirety. They kindly sent us a copy to review, and I'm delighted to report that it's one of the most brilliantly-conceived and highly desirable special editions I've ever had the pleasure of covering.
Like the game itself, it's a class act, containing gorgeous replicas that actually mean something rather than the overblown, gaudy and ultimately meaningless nonsense that we're used to from most collector's editions.Click here to read more...
I appreciate we have all moved on since Call of Duty: Ghosts with most people currently on Advanced Warfare and looking to the future of Black Ops 3 but £4.95 for a single player campaign on the Playstation 3 is never to be sniffed at. You never know the multiplayer may well still be acceptably playable too.
Call Of Duty: Ghosts is a surprisingly tough sell on current-gen consoles, and wastes the opportunity to push the franchise forward in any meaningful way. Though still a solidly-built shooter that offers the kitchen sink, the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions lack players and features compared to both the next-gen editions, PC and even - most damningly of all - Black Ops II. It's galling to see a sequel offer less, not more, than games we already own. We'll review the next-gen versions as soon as we can. - Call Of Duty: Ghosts Current-Gen Review | The Old Kitchen Sink
Steins;Gate is the best visual novel I've ever played.
Read. Experienced. Whatever. It's easy to get hung up on the parlance seeing as visual novels blur the line between books and videogames, reader and player, but it's also completely moot. Not only is Steins;Gate the best visual novel I've ever reviewed (sorry, Danganronpa), but this time-travelling course-correcting masterpiece is almost certainly the finest example of the genre to have ever released.
We already knew that when the PC translation released last year and now Steins;Gate has launched on PlayStation platforms. Does it still hold up? Can it still pack a punch?
You've read the strapline and this review is already shamefully late, so let's drop the pretence and discuss exactly why Steins;Gate is one of the truly essential games of 2015.Click here to read more...
"One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 is a hectic and unapologetically over-the-top brawler that's worthy of the license. If you're a fan of the anime or just fancy a more vibrant and exciting take on the Dynasty Warriors franchise, it's hard not to recommend this weighty serving of colourful catharsis." - One Piece: Pirate Warriors 2 review
You can now get it with the limited edition Luffy statue for less than £20 at GAME.
One for the anime fans, but an absolute blast nonetheless.
My review of Steins;Gate should be going live this afternoon or tomorrow morning, but either way, it's almost certainly going to receive a perfect score. The new PlayStation release is the definitive version of the best visual novel ever made, with an uncompromising story and great characters, plus heartbreaking interactivity that makes your actions (or inactions) have serious consequences.
Though I'd recommend the PS Vita version, the PS3 version is no slouch and it's also dirt cheap.
As one of the last reviews I'll be writing for Dealspwn, I'm glad it's such an auspicious title. Stay tuned. Many thanks to Bure11 @ HUKD!
Looking for a fantastic anime compilation from new and old talent? With a playable game from Suda51 as part of the package? Well it's your lucky day, since Short Peace: Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day is now just four quid on PS3, the cheapest price we've seen yet.
It's a feature-length compilation of five standalone anime shorts, each hailing from a luminary in the field or left-field upstart. We have an opportunity to savour Shuhei Morita's Oscar-nominated Possessions, a fascinating and playful tale of animism that puts Pixar to shame, while Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo sallies forth with the breathtakingly lovely Combustible. Hiroaki Ando and Gundam mech designer Hajime Katoki join them, bringing unique storytelling and eyepopping visual flair to the mix.
And a crazy, gorgeous and somewhat short and limited project from Suda51. You can read our Short Peace: Ranko Tsukigime's Longest Day Review for the full verdict. Thanks to Lomi @ HUKD!

[UPDATE: It does seem like a glitch, but it's worth trying. Some of us have managed to get the full game on PS4, while others have ended up with a trial version. Do let us know how you get on]
[UPDATE 2: The glitch has been closed now and the game is back up to £7.99. Well done those of you that managed to sneak a copy!]
Wait. What? This might be a glitch, but it appears that Fez is currently available for Free on PS4, PS3 and Vita. Get on it fast! Our link will take you straight to the game's page on the store.
The game hasn't aged well in my opinion and by the time it landed on the Sony platforms I found it hard to get past its pretentious attitude and shitty map system. There is a great 2D platformer buried in there though thanks to the neat world rotating mechanic. One purchase gets you the game on all three formats, with the Vita being the best of the bunch for me. But hey, it's FREE!
Thanks to FantasyDeals.
The PlayStation Plus Instant Game Collection is one of the biggest draws of Sony's subscription service (it sure as heck isn't the download speeds), but some of you might be wondering why the free games haven't been updated yet.
Sony have now explained that there has been a slight tweak to their scheduling.Click here to read more...
