The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition on PC is now just £5.43 with voucher code over at Green Man Gaming - Click here to buy!

Here's yet another example of Bethesda's own sale being out-done by GMG and its voucher code WINTER-SALE20-GROGRE. It ends up beating GAME's recent deal as well, and for the price it's some seriously good value for money if you're after an RPG to dive into over Christmas.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut is just £2.95 at The Game Collection on Xbox 360. Click here to buy >>

I loved Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I mean, boss battles and that rubbish ending aside, it was a damn fine game that really delivered in terms of giving players options. We're big on that sort of thing here.

The Director's Cut reworks the offending parts of the original game to make for a somewhat smoother experience, integrating the Missing Link DLC, freeing up certain augmentations, and adding in 8 hours of developer commentary and a 45-minute documentary. Thanks mugglesquop!

Download the best South Park game ever made for £9.99 at GameKeysNow

South Park: The Stick of Truth is hands-down one of the best games I've played all year. It is, without question, the best South park video game out there. Part Obsidian, old-school RPG, part hilariously faithful South Park fan service, The Stick of Truth is rude, crude, and utterly  brilliant.

And it's less than a tenner on PC.

Cheers oUkTuRkEyIII!

You didn't ask for this, but Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut for just £3.25

Here's another highlight from today's fresh batch of Gamersgate deals, this time for the Director's Cut of Deus Ex: Human Revolution. The price has stayed fairly low for this one for some time, but this deal still manages to find a way to save you a few pounds over the next best deal.

While those who have yet to play ti should definitely consider this one, it's certainly an attractive offer if you wish to see how the Director's Cut improves over the original release, as it really does address the issues that plagued Human Revolution initially.

Get Dragon Age: Inquisition on PS4 / Xbox One for under £40 from Rakuten / Base

Here's a seriously tempting Dragon Age: Inquisition deal on current-gen consoles using the voucher code below. It brings both versions below the £40, although PS4 owners get the best price and saving overall.

I described it as "not only one of the best RPGs of the year, but a strong last-minute contender for game of the year" in our 9/10 review. Some 100 hours later I still haven't finished it, which only goes to highlight how much content there is to get through. It really is unmissable if you've been itching for a massive RPG to lose yourself in. Thanks to FantasyDeals @ HUKD!

Nintendo 2DS (transparent) with Pokemon Omega Ruby and a free game for £109.99 at Zavvi

Ah, transparent Nintendo handhelds making me feel old. It was a hideous look on the Game Boy, and it's pretty hideous on the 2DS too. That said, there's something incredibly nostalgic about having transparent hardware -- it's all so very Nineties. Even the N64 got in on the act.

Anyway, Zavvi are offering the Nintendo 2DS with Pokemon Omega Ruby bundle for £109.99, and Nintendo are running a promotion where you can register your shiny new copy of Pokemon and get a free game in the process.

The games you can get with the promotion are as follows:

  • Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
  • The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds
  • Yoshi’s New Island
  • Kirby: Triple Deluxe
  • Mario Golf: World Tour
  • Mario Party: Island Tour
  • Pokémon Art Academy

Zavvi's deliveries have been know to take their time on occasion, but all signs point towards a swift dispatch in this case. Cheers Genki!

JRPG fans rejoice! Ni No Kuni just £3.99 over on PSN

Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch is a marvellous games. It's brilliant, beautiful,and it'll bring you to tears within the first ten minutes. It's also under four quid over on the PlayStation Store and you should buy it immediately.

Here's what I said in my review: "One of the best JRPGs of the last decade, Ni No Kuni is in many ways a love letter to a genre slowly fading away into obscurity. Brimming with imaginative aesthetics, and packing a hefty emotional punch or two in spite of its rather clichéd story, Level-5 and Studio Ghibli have worked wonders to whisk us away to another world. An utter triumph in roleplaying escapism in a game that manages to stand on the shoulders of the genre's best to deliver a modern classic."

Just buy it already. Cheers bernardsfingers!

 

Dragon Age: Inquisition Review | BioWare’s Redemption

Dragon Age: Inquisition Review | BioWare’s Redemption

I had been wandering through the Hinterlands – the first open zone of the game – for over 3 hours. The vast area filled with things to find, quests to complete, and places to discover had absolutely consumed me. As I ran around, Varric and Cassandra would bicker about the latter’s interrogation of the former, whilst Solas muttered something about the Fade. Eventually I realised that I had completed almost everything I could within my current party level – the random dragon I had stumbled across was far too powerful – but I had been happily running around grabbing items and, more to the point, trying to traverse hills for the sake of admiring the view. It wasn’t long after that that I realised something was missing, and then it hit me. In my haste to get into the world of Thedas, I had forgotten to pick up the main story quest from my base. I had been running around, doing all the things, and not even begun my journey to save the world.

And with a laugh, I realised I didn’t care, because I was having so much fun.

That in itself should demonstrate the freedom to be found within Dragon Age: Inquisition, as well as the lengths BioWare have gone to ensure that they put the mistakes of Dragon Age II behind them. This was evident even before the game began, with a character customisation suite with an array of choices and manipulation sliders normally reserved for MMORPGs. It’s a huge step up from previous BioWare titles where a custom look ends up looking like a lucky dip of the NPCs, and finally allows players to create an avatar on par with the visuals of their companions. I actually spent a good 45 minutes fine tuning my character’s face from the defaults available, which, again, should highlight how powerful the creation suite is. If there is a complaint, it’s that the hairstyle options were pretty bland (and no, Matt, there isn’t an afro option) but otherwise BioWare have finally addressed one of my major criticisms of their RPGs.

Lords of the Fallen: Limited Edition now just £25 at Amazon

Lords of the Fallen is basically a Dark Souls wannabe with an expansive world, some nice enemy design, and rather divisive handling. It's also not as good as Dark Souls at all, but it's cheap and looks pretty, and the Limited Edition comes packed with a bunch of extras.

The Limited Edition contains the following goodies:

  • The Monk’s Decipher DLC
  • The Demonic Weapons pack (includes three new weapons)
  • Official Soundtrack

Happy hunting!

Every Sunday, we'll be diving into the Dealspwn archives to bring you an article or review from yesteryear. This week, with a new Pokemon game just around the corner, here's Felix's 15th Anniversary Pokemon piece from back in 2010.

How about you, dear reader? What's been your favourite Pokemon game?

*     *     *

From The Vault | The Pokemon Complex

It’s been fifteen years since Pokemon was first released. It introduced a veritable ecosystem of elemental critters, and soon became a phenomenon. It began on the Gameboy as Pocket Monsters, and Pokemon has become not only a force in videogames, but a titan of trading-cards, anime and film. But it is the traditional videogame release fans crave most; Red and BlueGold and SilverRuby andSapphireDiamond and Pearl. Recently, Nintendo announced Black and White, the sixth edition, which promises to deliver a radical overhaul to the series.

But why is the Pokemon formula so endearing? In fifteen years, it's barely evolved beyond the established framework. So why does it continue to be a financial and critical success?

Get South Park: The Stick of Truth on PC for just £8.74 from Amazon

Curiously, Amazon have not included any games within their Black Friday countdown deals, but you wouldn't think that's the case with this listing for South Park: The Stick of Truth. It's the cheapest we've seen the PC version fall to, and will save you around £4 over the next best offer elsewhere. Please note that this is for a download code to be redeemed on 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.
