We're back with more from the Network Test for Dark Souls II. In today's episode, Carl hops back onto his Warrior to take on the opponent that bested him in the previous Network Test - the shielded Red Phantom. Will he manage to best his ancient nemesis? Will he be cleaved in half by that ridiculously large sword? If he does survive, will he find anything new and exciting waiting for him? There's only one way to find out...
With its sequel now just a few months away, this deal from ShopTo might be the perfect chance to brush up on your hollow-killing skills. Overall you can save yourself around £7 over the next cheapest listing.
Acting as a GOTY Edition of sorts, it contains a number of new additions that the console releases didn't initially include such as a new chapter, new enemies and bosses, new items and NPCs, and an online matchmaking system for both co-op and PvP modes. In other words, prepare for even more ways to die in this revision of one of the most divisive titles of recent years. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!
Latercomers to the Dragon Age series can get up to speed with the adventures of the Grey Warden with this bundle. This offer from GAME will save you £2.50 over the next best deal at Gamersgate, and is obviously much cheaper than buying all the content separately.
Along with the main game, you will get all nine DLC packs, along with the Awakenings expansion, meaning for the price you’re getting many, many hours of content in what some would describe as the superior entry in the series. Thanks to jaystan @ HUKD!

He's faced dastardly ambush after ambush, he's bested sickle-flailing red phantoms, and he took down the Skeleton Lord on the first try, but the greatest test is about to happen. In the final part of our videos from last weekend's Network Test of Dark Souls II, Carl retraces his steps to seek revenge on those enemies that bested his before, only to discover a new path with his greatest challenge yet - five Red Phantoms. Can he defeat them all before the servers shut down? Find out the answer after the jump.

We're back with Part 2 of our misadventures in last weekend's Network Test for Dark Souls II. In today's episode of Dealspwn Playthrough, a slightly-more-awake Carl continues to forge a path towards the boss fight for the beta - the Skeleton Lord. Before he does that he has to come across a new foe in the Red Phantoms. See how he fares after the jump.
So, that's every single Deus Ex game, including the recently released Director's Cut of Human Revolution, for £6. Hot. Damn. Thanks to O0mix0O @ HUKD!

Final Fantasy XV's game director -- Tetsuya Nomura -- has said that the pre-rendered cutscenes that have been a series staple (for better or worse) will be lessened in favour of player-controlled, "dynamic" sequences.Click here to read more...
It's not every day that a Hail Mary pass in the form of a Kickstarter project aiming to get a 20-year project off of the ground wins out, but for inXile Entertainment and Brian Fargo, it really did. In a big way. I caught up with Brian at Gamescom this year to find out just what it means to the industry veteran to finally have the chance to bring Wasteland 2 to fruition, how the Unity engine and its Asset Store have made the process faster and efficient than the developers might have otherwise imagined, the nature of Kickstarter and answering to consumers and fans rather than publishers, and why player choice and player agency is such a big deal.Click here to read more...

Brian Fargo has been waiting a long time for the opportunity to create a true sequel to Wasteland. True, we've had Fallout and Fountain of Dreams, but those were spiritual sequels more than anything else. The Desert Rangers have plenty more stories of their own to tell yet.
Wasteland 2 is something of a modern take on retro stylings with its aesthetics enormously reminiscent of the Infinity engine's heyday. Instead of some big-name Kickstarter projects with lofty ambitions that far exceeded their crowdfunding budget (*cough* Double Fine), inXile have had a plan and stuck to it. When I caught up with Brian at this year's Gamescom, he explained how fashioning the game using the Unity engine, and leveraging Unity's expansive Asset Store allowed the team to move much more efficiently than they might have otherwise, both in terms of expenditure and time management.
Being a game constructed around deep, tactical, turn-based combat, the isometric view works marvellously, and players will have the opportunity to work out the perfect party combinations for their groups of four player-created Rangers, and up to three other NPCs. A familiar-looking attribute system makes a return, with CLASSIC comprising Charisma, Luck, Awareness, Strength, Speed, Intelligence, and Coordination. Thre'll be 32 skills in which to specialise, across three disciplines: Combat (e.g. Blunt Weapons, Bladed Weapons, Anti-Tank-Weapons etc.), Knowledge (e.g. Picklock, Safecrack, Alarm Disarm, Demolitions etc.) and General (e.g. Detector, Outdoorsman, Evasion, Leadership, Folklore etc.).Click here to read more...
