Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush only £26.95 on Wii U

We love Kirby, the adorable ravenous serial cannibal, and Kirby & The Rainbow Paintbrush is a fantastic idea. Using the Wii U GamePad, we'll create clay ropes for Kirby to swing around on and blast enemies away, finally using the touchscreen for more than just browsing.

It reviewed well Stateside, and if you want to pre-order, you can buy Kirby and Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush for just £26.95 at The Game Collection.

There's some confusion about whether the game is called Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush or Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, since the title differs depending on your side of the Atlantic. Thanks Gamer_U!

Ready to get into Wii U? Wii U Basic with Super Smash Bros now £169.99

Bag a Wii U (Basic) with Smash Bros for £169.99 at GAME.

I've previously argued that the Wii U is a must-have console, and I still stick to my guns. It's a fantastic machine with a superb games library and magnificent local multiplayer, making for an essential second console that compliments your gaming PC, PS4 or Xbox One. Either way, GAME's £169.99 deal is back in stock and providing a great price, even if we briefly saw it for £10 less before Christmas.

Resident Evil Revelations from £11.69 on PS3/Wii U/360

Fancy a bit of Resident Evil Revelations HD from just £11.69? We've got you covered.

Revelations is a more of a traditional outing for the series, so a little bit clunky, but with more horror than action. But at least it's not drawn out into a never-ending borefest like Resi 6. This HD port has given the game a serious graphical boost over the 3DS original, making this the definitive edition for your underfed survival horror needs. With an episodic sequel out soon, this is great price to catch up on the story, although the two are independent of each other really.

Need a change from Mario Kart at your next Wii U party? Then you'll want to pre-order a copy of Mario Party 10 for £26.95.

Packed with over 70 minigames, this will keep kids and adults amused for hours on end. Amiibo functionality should start to come into its own here too, so you can justify the shocking amounts of money you've been spending on them. Not to make that particular habit worse, but there are still multiple Amiibos available for £9.99 at Games Centre. Sorry.

GAME FEATURES:

The Wii U GamePad controller offers a new way to play multiplayer in this game. An extra player can jump into the action using the new Boost mode, creating platforms out of thin air to help others navigate tricky stages or access hidden or hard-to-reach items.

Boost mode also makes cooperative speed runs possible for the first time. Use the GamePad to interact with and manipulate enemies and objects in real time, allowing for new ways to find the fastest routes through each level.
Play on the big screen or the small screen. Switch game play from the TV to the GamePad at any time to continue playing even when others are using the TV.

Stuck for Valentine's Day ideas? These great multiplayer games might save your bacon

Valentine's Day is a beautiful thing. Whether you're heading out on a first date, celebrating years of happiness or just looking for that special someone, it's a day of careful planning, sweeping romantic gestures and love in its most ridiculously expensive purest form.

So stuff all that nonsense, because PlayStation Plus multiplayer is free for all this weekend and there's plenty of games to play.*

More than likely your significant other or date will be totally up for this plan. Gaming is awesome. We all know it. But just in case they need a little extra convincing, here are some great games that will bring you closer together and make for a truly special Valentine's Day. At least, that's what you'll tell them, seeing as you clearly haven't sorted anything out yet and there's only one day to go. It'll be our little secret.

*Dealspwn accepts no responsibility for any failed relationships as a result of this course of action. Dealspwn does not guarantee that any bacon will be saved. Who needs 'em? They weren't good enough for you anyway. We love ya.

Dying Light

Stuck for Valentine's Day ideas? These great multiplayer games might save your bacon

Dying Light? Seriously?!

A hectic and terrifying zombie-infested sandbox might not seem like a great mood-setter, but you'd be surprised. Not only will the cooperative exploration and combat bring you closer together in ways you'd never thought possible, but you'll also need to snuggle into safe zones for warmth and shelter. Who knows what might happen... okay, lookit, guys and girls, this is the best excuse we can come up with.

It'll work. Trust us.

Dying Light is now £25.55 on PC at CDKeys (instant delivery) or £30.00 on PS4 (though it won't arrive in time for Valentines Day)

Portal 2

Stuck for Valentine's Day ideas? These great multiplayer games might save your bacon

Ah, now Portal 2 is altogether more wholesome. Adorable robots? Check. Close cooperation that makes you work together and cherish each other? Check.

Cake? Erm, don't count on it.

Get what critics widely hail as the "best game of 2014," ourselves included, for only £27.49 on Wii U. This isn't the special edition containing the original Bayonetta, but it is well clear of £30 and a bargain for an utterly superb balletic action game.

Xenoblade Chronicles X is going to reinvent the JRPG... again

JRPGs, Monolith Soft, Wii U games, Xenoblade Chronicles X

Xenoblade Chronicles is one of the best JRPGs of the decade, and it succeeded by breaking the mold. The great characters and strong storylines we love from the genre were innovatively merged with the massive open worlds and exploration we typically associate with western RPGs and MMOs, creating a game that was enormous as it was deeply compelling. In effect, it reinvented and reinvigorated a genre that many, albeit incorrectly, feel is stagnating.

Xenoblade Chronicles X seems set to do the same. Only on a much grander scale. With mechs. And multiplayer!

Monolith Soft's upcoming Wii U exclusive has been on our radar ever since its first teasers, but Nintendo have now launched a slew of new details by way of one of an utterly stunning Japanese Nintendo Direct presentation. You can watch the video above, but for your convenience, here's what we now know about Xenoblade Chronicles X... and why we feel that it's one of the most exciting releases of 2015.

Reminder: Nintendo eShop deals & Curve Studios Wii U sale go live tonight

In case you didn't get the memo, Nintendo are set to update the 3DS and Wii U eShop tonight, bringing a new clutch of deals and savings along for a ride. This week Curve Studios are the star with 25% discounts on four games that goes up to 35% if you already own any one of them.

The highlight is definitely Stealth Inc 2 for £9.49/£7.99, which released last October. I described it as a "magnificently frustrating bastard of pure stealth, brutal platforming and satisfying puzzles with a sadistic sense of humour" in our 8/10 review.

If you missed it, we've recapped the whole shebang below.
