Assassin's Creed: Rogue is much better than Unity. But then it would be, what with it being an Arctic-set sequel to Black Flag that has you romping about the northern seas as a swagalicious Templar. Pick it up for just over £20 at Zavvi now.

EXPIRED! Watch Dogs is great value for £11.99 on Xbox One

Watch Dogs is a huge content package. Seriously, it's enormous, and although Aiden Pearce might be one of the most boring protagonists we've ever encountered, the things he can do are pretty cool. Watch Dogs' overstuffed features aren't always golden, but there's much to be said for ragging around Chicago in a supercar, and messing about with the police by hacking everything in sight.

Stick on some blues, and it's glorious!

Cheers rickrud3 and oUkTuRkEyIII!

Can you forgive Assassin's Creed: Unity its sins now it's slipped to £18.20 on Xbox One?

There will be plenty who disagreed with me, but I found Assassin's Creed: Unity to be a thoroughly disappointing game. It wasn't just the bugs, this supposed generational leap felt both uninspired and overstuffed, riddled with Ubisoft's corporate meddling, bloated with numerous in-game currencies, ill-fitting mechanics, and the ever-present stench of Uplay.

Still, for under £20 one might find it far easier to overlook such problems and have a lot of murderous fun in Revolutionary Paris.

Sleeping Dogs (PS3) is unmissable for £4 from Tesco

Sleeping Dogs (PS3) is unmissable for £4 from Tesco

I've got a huge soft spot for Sleeping Dogs. It's one of my favourite open-world games in recent years because it jettisoned a massive, sprawling world in favour of something a little tighter, but more polished in every regard. It's not just that the slightly smaller size of the game world (and it's still pretty big) allows for a more dense map, filled with things to see and do, but all of the various systems were mechanically excellent -- the combat, the driving, the stunts, all of it.

The Definitive Edition is nice and all, but there's really no reason to pay in double figures for a spit and a polish when you can pick up the original for £4.

It's a freakin steal at £4.

Cheers ajayshah95!

Get Minecraft on PS4 for just £9.99 from The Game Collection

It's a repeat of a deal from last month, but what the hell - it's Black Friday and it's a great price for Minecraft on PS4. This offer from The Game Collection will save you a few quid over the next cheapest offer elsewhere.

I'm not sure what else is left to say. It's Minecraft - you already know if the blocky sandbox title and its endless nightmare of Creepers is what you want. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!

Alleged Just Cause 3 screens leaked - Why we need Rico Rodriguez back in our lives

Just Cause 3 is looking... well... it's looking pretty Just Cause-y to be honest, if these rumoured screenshots of the Xbox One debug build are anything to go by. They don't reveal a huge amount apart from mountains, expansive landscapes, Rico shooting at traffic, and the purchasing of cars.

Eurogamer have managed to verify at least one of the images, more on that in a bit, but have your pinches of salt at the ready anyway.

I'm still yet to 100% Just Cause 2 -- I doubt now that I ever will -- but that hasn't stopped it being one of my favourite games in recent years, nor has it prevented us here at Dealspwn Towers craving a third instalment. Avalanche are being very coy, and no doubt focusing most of their efforts on Mad Max, but the return of Rico Rodriguez must surely be a priority for them.

We need him back, badly.

COMMENT | GTA 5 gets First-Person mode, but is it worth buying again?

COMMENT | GTA 5 gets First-Person mode, but is it worth buying again?

Grand Theft Auto 5's new-gen first-person mode was unveiled yesterday via an IGN First Look, amongst other things, and here are a few of our thoughts on the reveal, the new perspective, the prospect of new-gen GTA 5, and whether or not it's a must-buy this Holiday Season.

Matt

As someone who found GTA 5 to be a little lacking in terms of really drawing me into the world, I'm enormously excited for the first-person mode that Rockstar have added to the new-gen release. It's not simply a matter of repositioning the camera, to really make it work you need to retweak everything to make the game feel like it was made for that perspective, and it looks as though the developers have really gone the extra distance to do that.

COMMENT | GTA 5 gets First-Person mode, but is it worth buying again?

I'm a little biased in that regard, I find third-person perspectives to be far inferior when it comes to eliciting a sense of immersion in a game -- though caveats for that can be made regarding acrobatic action titles. In this respect, I think GTA lends itself brilliantly to a first-person perspective -- it already makes the vehicular stuff more thrilling, though the interiors look like arse -- and I'm looking forward to seeing how it changes the feel and the rhythm of the game. It's one change, but I reckon it could have a huge impact.

Infamous: Second Son | Amazon / ShopTo | £22.85 (save £5)
Price ComparisonReview

Infamous: Second Son doesn't exactly shake things up as much as refine the Infamous formula. It's a gorgeous looking open-world, superpowered playground that'll provide plenty of entertainment, and won't hit your wallet too hard now that ShopTo and Amazon have dropped the price by a further fiver.

To be honest, though, if you're planning on picking up the standealone expansion -- First Light -- I'd actually start there. It's over ten quid cheaper, and actually works best when played first as its prequelicious plot won't be spoiled by the things you learn in Second Son. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!

Disney Infinity 2.0 - Guardians Of The Galaxy Playset Review | Racket Raccoon

Platforms: PC | PS3 | PS4 | Wii U | Xbox 360 | Xbox One (reviewed)

Developer: Avalanche Software | Ninja Theory (combat)

Publisher: Disney Interactive

Guardians Of The Galaxy deserves a good game. This isn't it.

We were initially thrilled at the news that Disney Infinity 2.0 would be doing the heavy lifting when it came to Guardians' movie tie-in. Instead of a terrible Activision-published atrocity, we were promised a lengthy piece of fanservice including high quality miniatures and production values, boasting a story from none other than Brian Michael Bendis himself, available for £15 alongside the Star-Lord and Gamora figures. What a fantastic idea.

And what horrible execution. Disney Infinty 2.0 ultimately triumphs despite its issues, but the Guardians Of The Galaxy playset is one of the worst games I've suffered through in years. Other sites seem to have included this expansion in their reviews for the base game, but I'd like to discuss what is effectively a DLC pack in detail so you can be forewarned against throwing bad money after good.

Or, in other words, buy the Rocket Raccoon figure and steer clear of this sorry shovelware.

Disney Infinity 2.0 Review | Marvellous Toybox, Perilous Playsets

Platforms: PC | PS3 | PS4 | Wii U | Xbox 360 | Xbox One (reviewed)

Developer: Avalanche Software | Ninja Theory (combat)

Publisher: Disney Interactive

There's no such thing as a "good game for kids." There are only good games, some of which are more accessible than others. Take Minecraft, designed to encourage experimentation and creativity regardless of age. Or Mario, beloved by millions despite punishing each pitfall with instant death.

Half of Disney Infinity 2.0 gets this absolutely right. The toybox mode is utterly fantastic no matter how old you are. Create your own levels, invite some friends and then watch your favourite Disney and Marvel toys come to life. It's genuinely magical.

Disney Infinity 2.0 Review | Marvellous Toybox, Perilous Playsets

Sadly the other half displays the same lazy level design, shonky mechanics and lack of care that typifies so-called kids games. "Who cares? It's just for children."

Fun fact: everyone deserves quality software. So thank goodness that Disney Infinity 2.0's better half is also its biggest by far!

If you've got a PS4, you'll probably want to blast through this graphically gorgeous super-powered sandbox. It'll put your console through its paces, and it's bloody good fun to boot. Do expect some boring side missions and a dearth of genuinely new things to do -- though what you can do is enjoyable and very pretty. Amazon's £27.99 offering is the best new price around by a mile.
