Time to go back to Destiny? It's only £14.95 today

If you traded in Destiny not long after launch, you may have regretted it since. On the plus side, it's really cheap nowadays and there's a hell of a lot of extra content to it now, so maybe this is the time to get back into Bungie's online shooter.

Destiny has been great fun so far, albeit a somewhat shallower experience than we were expecting thanks to a gated levelling system that makes it difficult to get past Lv20 without a hell of a lot of work. Don't even get us started on the rotating PVP modes. If you're planning on playing missions with a group of friends though, there's a moreish experience to be found that's unlike anything else on the new consoles. You don't necessarily have to fork out for the new House of Wolves DLC to enjoy the game, as Jon explains in a recent article.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on PS4 only £23.85

£23.85 for a copy of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare on PS4 is a great price and  a fiver cheaper than most other sites.

Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare has been a grand return and reinvention for the FPS series. The futuristic setting has been the perfect excuse to introduce the exoskeleton which gives players double jump and speed boost dodge skills. The campaign was oodles of fun and had the best of Hollywood (Kevin Spacey) and gaming VO actors (Troy Baker) to keep you hooked throughout. Oh, and the multiplayer is better than it's been in years -head straight to Uplink and Kill Confirmed modes to see why. Here's my full review.

Mortal Kombat X only £29.95 today on PS4

Mortal Kombat X is one of the best entries in the series and this PS4 deal is a fiver cheaper than other sites.

Take a look at my Mortal Kombat X review for a full report. I can tell you now that fighter fans should be all over this one. The combat is super smooth and incredibly meaty and the story mode is surprisingly strong, giving you a taste of multiple characters. There's tonnes to do after the story too, with challenge towers with crazy match modifiers and hundreds of items to unlock in the Krypt. I've also reviewed the Jason Voorhees DLC.

Thanks to Illusionary.

COMMENT | It's time you gave Destiny another chance - even if you don't buy House Of Wolves

Stuck for something to play this weekend? How about the copy of Destiny that you're currently using as a coaster. Go on, dust it off. Put it in the drive and reinstall it.

Destiny's second expansion, House Of Wolves, released this week. You can read our first impressions here , which praises the new additions including the fantastic Prison Of Elders mode while complaining about the story questline and other features. All-told it brings a lot to the Bungie's controversial shooter, but believe it or not, it's also worth playing Destiny again even if you don't buy the new content.

COMMENT | It's time you gave Destiny another chance - even if you don't buy House Of Wolves

Like many early adopters, I was crushingly disappointed by Destiny when it first launched and even uninstalled it before the year was out. Back in January, however, I realised that there must be a reason why so many people still enjoy it and I soon discovered what it was. Destiny is a superb social experience that can be enjoyed on your terms, dipped into daily alone or with friends, cooperatively or competitively, which completely changes the way you engage with it. Played little and often, it's an satisfying blast and I've been hooked ever since.

I'm glad I did, because much has changed for the better and even more improvements are now free to enjoy regardless of whether you own the expansion.

F1 2015 in the pits until July, but at least there's a trailer

Just a quick heads-up: F1 2015 was originally supposed to release next month, but has been pushed back for unspecified reasons. Probably polishing, as per usual.

Still, at least we've got a new trailer for you.

Mortal Kombat X Jason Voorhees DLC Review | This is why they run

Season Pass content can be tricky to navigate, especially when you're not sure how a piece of paid content is going to work out. At Dealspwn we always advise waiting for some coverage or reviews before putting any extra cash down, especially for season passes. We really enjoyed Mortal Kombat X at launch and have been impressed with the variety of characters already on offer. So how about the DLC ones? Well, here's our review of the first to arrive, the infamous, Jason Voorhees.

The indestructible star of the Friday the 13th movies (yes, except the first one) initially seemed a rather odd choice for the series, as he's never been known for his pace and the idea of him performing combos seems a bit absurd. Thankfully, NetherRealm have given him a generous injection of pace and a decent skillset with linkable moves, while maintaining his sinister style.

Mortal Kombat X Jason Voorhees DLC Review | This is why they run

As with all the characters in Mortal Kombat X, Jason has three different fighting styles to choose from; Slasher, Relentless and Unstoppable. Let's start with Slasher, the simplest stance to learn and the only one that sees Jason wielding his beloved machete throughout.

Hellraid has been scrapped and rebooted - and that's definitely for the best

Following years of delays and development issues, Techland's troubled dark fantasy hack & slasher Hellraid has been completely scrapped pending a complete ground-up rebuild. Originally revealed in 2013 and slated to release the same year, the project was failing to live up to expectations and will now go "back to the drawing board."

It's always a shame when a project gets cancelled, but to be perfectly honest, we welcome the news and aren't entirely surprised.

Shadow of Mordor has unmissable features for only £17.99 on PS4/XO

If you want a game that actually features a next-gen idea, then grab a copy of Shadow of Mordor for just £17.99, saving you a few quid over the other sites. Actually, this is one of the best prices I've seen for a new copy of the game.

We can't get enough of Monolith's Shadow of Mordor here at Dealspwn and we thoroughly recommend you dust off your Uruk hunting skills to get a taste too. Turns out the Nemesis system has managed to back up its bold 'next-gen only' ambitions with a neat set of mechanics that sees enemies remember you and you can even brainwash them into fighting for you as you infiltrate the highest ranks of Sauron's army. There's an excellent set of skills available to take advantage of an enemy's weaknesses too to create unique experiences throughout. It also walked away with our Game of the Year award. Check out our full review here.

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.

Destiny: House Of Wolves Launch Impressions | The Kell Has No Clothes

I've come to love Destiny over these last few months. Despite being crushingly disappointed at launch, I gradually realised that it's a great social experience that fits around your real life and gaming commitments, perfect for a strike here and a daily story mission there followed by a quick blast in the Crucible. Sure, the so-called "Raids" are hilariously repetitive, but Destiny's fun is evergreen and mechanically exceptional.

However, there's no denying that it's crying out for extra content. Which is where House Of Wolves comes in.

A far cry from The Dark Below, which used its Raid as an excuse to flog a pathetic amount of stuff at a breathtaking price point, House Of Wolves is much meatier and rides the crest of a major update. A new social space, new questline, new horde mode, new gear, level cap increase and three/four new Crucible maps certainly seems to be a generous offering, so I double-jumped right in as soon as it launched.

Destiny: House Of Wolves Launch Impressions | The Kell Has No Clothes

I've had a blast as always, but unfortunately what seems to be a huge wodge of content is far less substantial than it first appears. As is so often the case with Destiny, the emperor has no clothes. Or the Kell has no combat regalia to be more precise.

Borderlands: The Handsome Collection gets a massive performance patch

As much as we love Borderlands: The Handsome Collection, we were compelled to point out some annoying technical issues. Frame rate drops can affect both Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel, while the latter suffers from the most egregious screen tearing I've seen in a console game in quite some time.

Thankfully Gearbox have deployed a whopping new patch that should go some way towards fixing these problems... at the expense of pulling down about 8GB.

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.

Bloodborne is essential from just £29.99

High review scores and strong sales are great for Bloodborne on the PS4, but they also mean that retailer's aren't inclined to lower the price. Most sites are charging over £40, but we've found a preowned deal for just £29.99. On the plus side, you're still getting great value for money. If you insist on a new copy, how does £33.99 sound?

From Software's title has blown away the competition this generation and is Sony's first true classic on the PS4. I'd urge non-Souls fans to try it too as I really wasn't expecting to enjoy Bloodborne this much. It's knuckle-gnawingly difficult at times and would rather spit in your eye than point anything out for you. But fending for yourself in the incredibly well-designed environments is a rewarding, empowering and yet humbling experience that gamers will talk about for years to come. Those lengthy loading times have been fixed too.

Lego Dimensions and Christopher Lloyd threaten to destroy space time continuum

[UPDATE: We've just found some exceptionally cheap preorders for Lego Dimensions here.]

Great Scott, indeed! Today's latest trailer shows Back to the Future's Christopher Lloyd discovering the hidden portal delights of Lego Dimensions and we get another look at the mashup of famous characters threatening the space time continuum as multiple genres and licensed universes collide. Batman, Lord of the Rings (was that a Lego Balrog? OMFG!), Wizard of Oz, Back to the Future, Portal 2, Doctor Who, DC comics, The Simpsons and Jurassic World are all confirmed already.

With toys-to-life raking in some serious cash nowadays, we think this could well print money for Warner and Lego, and going by the success of The Lego Movie and Traveller's Tales past lego games, this might just explode. Yes, parents, this is your worst nightmare fully realised.

Lara Croft: Temple of Osiris Gold Edition (with Season Pass) only £9.75 on PS4

The chunky box comes with a disc-based version of Lara Croft: Temple of Osiris, an artbook, mini Lara figurine, map and the Season Pass. This is much cheaper than it sounds considering the digital equivalent with a season pass would be £20 or £15 for just the game. Having a physical version of the game, instead of a download code means you'll have the option of reselling down the line if you'd like. Whether you activate the Season Pass (with two extra tombs to explore) is up to you though.

Still not sure? Check out Jon's review of the XO version here. Don't forget PS4 fans, this is the only way you'll get to play a Tomb Raider game this year. Damnit Square!
