Until Dawn: Extended Edition £39.85 on PS4

Despite being a brand new product, there's already an Extended Edition of Until Dawn. On the plus side, this retailer's price is even cheaper than the best deal we can find for the standard edition, making this the clear choice for horror movie fans wanting to see how Sony's long-awaited game holds up.

Until Dawn has been coming for years. Originally a PS3 Move title, the game has ditched the motion controller for DualShock 4 support on the PS4. It's looking like a lot of fun too and early reviews have been largely positive. This spin on the slasher horror movie has a bunch of teens trying to escape a masked murderer in what looks like Scream meets Heavy Rain. It's a bit of a quick-time-event fest, but with choices leading to possible perma-deaths of characters, replay value could be high. Want to know more? Then check out Jon's Until Dawn hands-on preview and keep an eye out for our full review whenever my postman gets his act together.

The Evil Within only £6.98 on PC

Need a bit of traditional survival horror to hide away from all this summer sunshine nonsense (or torrential downpours)? Well, it's a good thing we've found a cracking PC deal for The Evil Within then.

The Evil Within is a return to traditional survival horror values with an unforgiving difficulty curve and a serious lack of ammo. Sounds harsh? That's the way the Resident Evil games used to be yanno (before all the zombies got motorbikes and machine guns). If Dark Souls was your introduction to tough gaming, you'll get a kick (and maybe a chainsaw to the face) from The Evil Within, be sure to check out the HD remake of the original Resident Evil too.

Alien: Isolation Nostromo Edition is super cheap on PS4/XO

The Nostromo Edition of Alien: Isolation is available at a great price today thanks to the new Rakuten voucher code. Including delivery you can pick up a copy on PS4 or Xbox One for just £10.53. That's £4-£5 cheaper than the competition and it's even cheaper than the regular edition.

Alien: Isolation has been a big success. The pulse rifles and dodgy AI have been ditched for a pure survival horror experience that sees you constantly fleeing from the alien by hiding under tables or in lockers and so on. Sure, it can get a little repetitive, but this is still the best Aliens game in years. The Nostromo Edition comes with the Crew Expendable DLC starring the original cast of the first movie.

Mastered Bloodborne? Try Demon's Souls for £9.99

Been meaning to try out Demon's Souls for a while? Well, you'll want to jump on this £9.99 deal then, which is a few quid cheaper than the next best offer.

Demon's Souls was the one that started it all. All the nasty, abusive, but oh so addictive gameplay which went on to become Dark Souls and of course, Bloodborne. The servers were originally supposed to be turned off years ago, but it's unclear as to how long they were left on. The game's still playable without them, you'll just be missing out on the hints, ghost death replays and invaders.

ZombiU is a bargain at £3.95 on Wii U

ZombiU is on offer this weekend and only £3.95 on the Wii U.

ZombiU is your best bet for punishing gameplay if you enjoy the fingernail-peeling delights of Dark Souls, Bloodborne et al. It also has some clever uses for the gamepad screen to add atmosphere. So, perhaps one for the more hardcore gamer out there.

Why Resident Evil 0 HD is great news for the series and gamers

Today, Capcom announced that they are working on Resident Evil 0 HD, a remastered HD port of their 2002 GameCube exclusive. While some HD ports/remasters feel like opportunistic cash grabs, we like to think that this one is a good thing; not just for us eager gamers, but for Capcom and the Resident Evil series in general. Here's why.

As fondly remembered as the GameCube was, the fact is it got hammered by the competition. Capcom were easily the most supportive third-party though with the original Resident Evil remake (or REmake), Resi 0 and of course, the incredible Resident Evil 4.

Why Resident Evil 0 HD is great news for the series and gamers

But back to Resident Evil 0. It's reasonable to assume many gamers have never played the GC original or the re-release that surfaced on the original Wii a while back. The recent Resident Evil HD Remaster broke sales records on PSN earlier this year, so the appetite for classic survival horror experiences is clearly there.

£2.95 for Resident Evil 6? Be rude not to really.

Resident Evil 6 is back on offer at the ridiculously cheap £2.95 for a NEW copy!

Despite being an improvement over Resi 5 and Raccoon City, we're still a long way off the glory days of the series. However, this deal offers great value for money. You're essentially getting three different campaigns for the price of a pint. One is action-heavy like recent games, while another attempts to return to the older vibe of taking on shuffling zombies in creepy locations. We don't really like to talk about the melee-centric campaign though. Despite being able to finally move while shooting, the controls still feel incredibly dated and sluggish. But man, so cheap!

White Night Review | A noire in the dark

White Night blends classic themes that sound fantastic on paper. It's essentially a survival horror/adventure title hybrid, inked with a gorgeous Sin City-esque graphic novel style, toned with a classic 1930s detective noir vibe. I already want a film version.

We begin the tale with a car accident, which sees our protagonist hobbling towards a nearby mansion for help. And boy do I mean hobble. I've never endured such a slow opening 30 minutes in my life. I plodded up to the gates when the camera eventually let me see them, then up to the porch, then around the graveyard until I found the key, and then around the house for ages until I found the first save point, a couch. Thankfully, when our hero awoke, his injuries were healed and I was treated to a run button too.

White Night Review | A noire in the dark

Right, god awful start out of the way, I could get on with enjoying the game. The visuals are easily the highlight of the whole experience, with clear cut black and white imagery (no greys); this is one of the most striking games I've played on the PS4.

Bloodborne Review | Hunt. Die. Learn. Grow.

Bloodborne Review | Hunt. Die. Learn. Grow.

Weeks after my first night in Yharnam, it's time for a verdict on my adventures in Bloodborne. Well, a number for the experience so far at least. Fresh tales about From Software's new title are appearing online every day. This is a game that nobody can really claim to have mastered yet. Secrets are still being unearthed, much of the lore has yet to be agreed and rumours whisper through the net about everything from werewolf modes to hidden boss fights.

One thing's for sure though, Sony has done very well for themselves by nailing Bloodborne down as a PS4 exclusive. As enjoyable as Infamous, DriveClub (eventually) and Killzone were, they never rode such a continuous wave of hype after release. Bloodborne's appeal won't be a surprise to fans of From Software's Demon's Souls or the Dark Souls series, but what is surprising, is that it's pulling in people who aren't fans of the Souls games. People like me.

After playing Demon's Souls, I stayed clear. Unresponsive combat and the relentlessly hardcore attitude to death just rubbed me all sorts of wrong. But ever since playing the Alpha and Beta versions of Bloodborne, I started to think that maybe it was time to have another crack at From Software's games, which had become much more than a cult game -something that hit home when I saw the diverse and incredibly long line of gamers waiting to play Dark Souls II at an Expo.

Bloodborne Review | Hunt. Die. Learn. Grow.

Bloodborne is still maddeningly difficult, but the most notable improvement for me is the aggressive combat. Heavy weapons and charged attacks aside, swings of your cleaver (if you choose to start with one) are quick and can be relied upon to attack your opponents when you want, rather than the sluggish eventual sword swinging that drove me insane in Demon's Souls. There are inconsistencies in how attacks interrupt enemy strikes though, which can be very frustrating when they take damage but continue to attack straight through your play.

Brendan's Bloodborne Hangover - A Dark Souls virgin's first night in Yharnam

As far as Dark Souls goes, you'll struggle to find anyone at Dealspwn that dislikes it more. But here I am, working my way through Bloodborne. From Software's latest title is essentially a spiritual successor to the incredibly tough Souls series. These are the joys of being the only full timer with a PS4 (until Jon bought one today!).

But screw it, I almost enjoyed the Alpha and Beta versions I played in recent months. So perhaps the tides were turning and I was going to start warming to the infamous brand of hardcore gaming that has built up such a large following since the early days of Demon's Souls. Incidentally, that game was the last one I played.

There are plenty of reviews and reports from seasoned players, but we thought we'd provide a perspective from a relative newcomer, as we imagine there are a few of you out there that didn't fancy (or flat out disliked) the Souls series, but are keen to see what all the fuss is over the PS4's biggest exclusive yet. So here I am, recovering the day after the oh so bloody night before. Here's how I earned my Bloodborne Hangover.

Brendan's Bloodborne Hangover - A Dark Souls virgin's first night in Yharnam

The first thing you'll do in Bloodborne is create a character. I didn't spend much time on this, as I figured I'd be covering them up with as much armour as possible the first chance I got. When selecting body build, I went for the slimmest option as it doesn't affect any stats. I figured the less of me there was to hit the better.
