It only took half a day for it to reach its $500,000 crowdfunding goal, but Divinity: Original Sin 2 finished its Kickstarter campaign in grand fashion yesterday afternoon. Hitting the $2,000,000 mark with just an hour to go, backers unlocked all of the remaining stretch goals to deliver a much larger (and freer) experience than Larian Studio originally planned.Click here to read more...

The Directors Cut of Wasteland 2 arrives next month, adding a whole host of new features and brand new dialogue options to the game. While owners of the PC version will be able to upgrade their standard editions for free, current-gen console owners can pre-order the whole package for under £30, saving a few pounds over the next best offer elsewhere. However, it should be noted that you will be charged immediately and not upon dispatch with this offer. inXile Entertaimment and Obsidian Entertainment managed to meet the expectations for the long-awaited sequel, delivering an excellent old-school RPG experience.

Just when you thought you might be done with The Witcher 3, it's time to jump back in and restart that Gwent addiction. This afternoon it was announced that the first expansion, titled Hearts of Stone, will be releasing on October 13th on PC, Xbox One and PS4. Adding 10 hours of content to the game, Geralt of Rivia is hired to "defeat a ruthless bandit captain, Olgierd von Everec, a man who possesses the power of immortality." The expansion will also introduce new characters, powerful monsters, and a brand new 'Runewords' system that "will impact a different aspect of in-game mechanics and will allow the players to experiment with various strategies and tactics." We've got a teaser trailer for you to view after the jump.Click here to read more...
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!

This deal for The Stick of Truth isn't quite the cheapest we've seen for the PC version, but it's certainly the best around right now. In fact, it beats the next best offer by over a fiver. As we point out in our review, Obsidian Entertainment have managed to create an enjoyable and authentic South Park experience thanks to the involvement of Trey Parker and Matt Stone. With a combat system that is surprisingly deeper than it appears, it would seem that The Stick Of Truth has ended up being worth the wait - despite the hilarious censorship issues. Thanks to mrsusan74 @ HUKD!

Here's a fine discount for those of you yet to make the jump to current-gen and still have an Xbox Live Gold subscription. Falling in price from £24.99, this is a huge saving. We felt that The Witcher 2's move onto console was a "a technical triumph", and helped to bring The Witcher series to a whole new audience before its well received third entry. Basically, at this price you should absolutely give it a whirl if you're after an expansive RPG to play through. Thanks to Noisetank @ HUKD!

Here's the cheapest price around for the upcoming Wii U exclusive, which beats the next best offer elsewhere by almost £4. Considering how well its predecessor held its price, this offer of £35 is pretty good going. We've made no secret of our high hopes and expectations for Xenoblade Chronicles X, with its expansive world to explore, monsters to defeat with enjoyable combat mechanics, and added multiplayer functionality. We'll ultimately find out in December if it has been worth the wait. Thanks to Gamer_U @ HUKD!
Well, that was quick. Then again, we're not too surprised considering how good its predecessor was. Having started a Kickstarter campaign for Divinity: Original Sin 2 yesterday, its developers Larian Studios were surprised to find that gamers are willing to throw money at a developer that keeps to their word and makes fantastic games. The campaign has raised over $600,000 so far - beating their target by $100,000 - and there's 34 days left to go.Click here to read more...
As someone who binged their way through Season 1 of the anime on Netflix recently, I’ve been craving more Sword Art Online. The tale of Kirito, fighting for survival in the online worlds whilst trying to save those closest to him, resonated with me far more than I was expecting (despite the second arc getting a little... weird… in parts.) It was enjoyable, emotional, and filled with great action sequences. Yet, the idea of a game made me nervous. Could the combat of the show – where players become their avatars in a VR simulation – truly translate to an input system of analog sticks and shoulder buttons? Perhaps more importantly, could a game successfully build upon the story and characters in the virtual world of Aincrad?
While newcomers are provided with a brief story catch-up to get up to speed, the truth is that Re: Hollow Fragment is a game for existing fans of SAO. However, fans should realise that this is a “what if” scenario instead of a continuation of the existing storyline, as the game diverges from the end of the first story arc in Aincrad. **Sword Art Online spoiler warning** Instead of finding freedom after defeating Heathcliff on floor 74, Kirito and the remaining players remain trapped in Sword Art Online. Their new goal is to clear the remaining 25 floors of Aincrad in hopes of truly escaping the game. Meanwhile, Kirito also discovers a mysterious new zone called the Hollow Area. Providing new challenges to best and weapons to earn, it acts as a new subplot for players to explore.

With Final Fantasy XV finally committing to a 2016 release, it's time for the hype train to step things up a gear. We've just had an info drop from Square Enix about some new locations that we'll explore with Noctis and the gang. Better yet, there are a few screenshots of these new locals to enjoy.Click here to see some images and info on the new locations.
We still need to wait four months until its release, but the price war to secure your pre-order is well and truly heating up now. This time it's The Game Collection who have lowered their prices, beating everyone else to bring you the cheapest deal for consoles by around £3. After an impressive display at this year's E3, I think it's safe to say that Fallout 4 is one of the most anticipated games of the year. A huge open world, improved interaction mechanics, a plethora of customisation options, and a dog are but a few of the reasons it will (most likely) be taking away many an award by the year's end. Thanks to Andy@Xcite @ HUKD!
This isn't the cheapest we've seen the PC version of The Witcher 3 fall to, but it's the best price around at the time of writing. It beats the next cheapest offer by around £3, but you can make a slightly better saving by using the voucher code above to knock an extra 5% off the asking price. Despite a few issues here and there we called The Witcher 3 "A title to truly lose yourself in" in our review. I know for a fact most of the Dealspwn team are utterly lost in the Gwent mini-game, which only goes to show how impressive the scale of it all is. So, in short, you'll be getting one of the best RPG experiences of 2015 for just £20. Thanks to luckyfives @ HUKD!

I reviewed Pillars Of Eternity yesterday and quite frankly I wish I was still playing it now. "Pillars Of Eternity is a masterpiece and nothing less than essential for anyone who's ever heard of the Infinity Engine," I wrote, dribbling all over the keyboard with barely-surpressed lust. "Superbly written, expansive yet rich and detailed, tactical and thought-provoking, it's the sort of roleplaying experience that we've been dreaming about for years."
It's amazing. Amazing.
So basically, you need to get on it. Hard. Currently it's available on Steam and Green Man Gaming, though today only you can grab the Pillars Of Eternity Champion edition for just £18.89. Use the CDKeys Facebook voucher code for the £1 discount, which you can get by clicking the widget at the top of the store page. You'll get plenty of extras into the bargain.
There are some great games on offer at incredibly low prices, including Avernum 2: Crystal Souls for £9.99, Avadon 2 for £1.69, the Geneforge Saga for £2.49 and more. Well worth a browse if you value writing over shiny visuals!
Once again CDKeys has slashed the price for the South Park RPG with their daily deal, dropping it to the lowest we've seen for the PC version. As always, you can claim an extra 5% off the price by liking them on the product page. As Brendan points out in our review, Obsidian Entertainment have managed to create an enjoyable and authentic South Park experience thanks to the involvement of Trey Parker and Matt Stone. With a combat system that is surprisingly deeper than it appears, it would seem that The Stick Of Truth has ended up being worth the wait - despite the hilarious censorship issues.

Looking for a decent JRPG on 3DS? Tales Of The Abyss is now £15.99.
The Vita may be the king of handheld JRPGs, but the 3DS has its fair share and Tales Of The Abyss is well worth a look. It's a decent port of the PS2 original, and though slightly generic, it's enormous and very entertaining to boot. £15.99 is a seriously good price especially considering that most retailers don't sell new copies any more. Many thanks to RagingKileak @ HUKD for a great spot!
Theatrhythm is awesome. And prounounced 'theatre-rhythm,' in case you were wondering. Blending rhythm games with RPG mechanics and the legendary Final Fantasy soundtrack, this is basically a must-have for any fan.
Better yet, you can now buy Theatrhythm: Curtain Call for only £12.99 from GAME.
The sequel expands on the original game massively, with a bunch of new gameplay modes, over 200 songs, and 60 playable characters. Another great spot from FantasyDeals!
Here's yet another chance to get the excellent South Park RPG for under the £7 mark. The listing from CDKeys undercuts the next best at Base by a pound, but if you combine it with a Facebook discount code (which you can claim by clicking on the product page) you can drop the price to £6.66 for a download code for Steam. As Brendan points out in our review, Obsidian Entertainment have managed to create an enjoyable and authentic South Park experience thanks to the involvement of Trey Parker and Matt Stone. With a combat system that is surprisingly deeper than it appears, it would seem that The Stick Of Truth has ended up being worth the wait - despite the hilarious censorship issues.
