Yoshi's Woolly World is one of the most promising platformers we've seen in a while and we're surprised to see it preordering for just £26.99 at this site when it's going for around £35 at other sites.
Sometimes you just want to chill out with a game and you'll struggle to find a more comforting-looking game than Yoshi's Woolly World on the Wii U. Want to know more? Take a look at Jon'shands-on preview where you can also see a gameplay video.
Fancy reliving the Hobbit movies in Lego form and pandering to your obsessive nature over in-game collectibles? Then be sure to pick up Lego The Hobbit on your Wii U for only £14.99.
The latest Lego effort is one of the more rushed efforts from the overworked Traveller's Tales studio, but it's much more appealing at this price. It's certainly worth a look if you're a series fan. The third film was supposed to be added as DLC late last year, but has since been cancelled.
Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII.
Bayonetta 2 is taking forever to come down, but this £22.80 deal is a decent price, saving you a few quid over other sites.
Bayonetta 2 is considered to be the best melee action title in years, probably the best since well, the first Bayonetta. So if you're a new Wii U owner, this should probably be your first stop. Sure the story's pants and Bayonetta looks way too much like Sarah Palin, but the combotastic gameplay is amongst the best the genre's seen.
Mario Kart 8 is set to receive another massive DLC pack next week, containing a whopping eight new tracks, three new courses and four new vehicles. Not to mention a simultaneous free update with the new 200cc mode and extra Amiibo content.
Or, in other words, Nintendo are doing DLC right when so many companies seem to be locked into a competition over who can get it the most badly wrong.Click here to read more...
Guitar Hero Live was announced yesterday and already we've found preorders that are £10 cheaper than any other site. It's what we do. These bundles include the game and the newly designed guitar with two rows of three buttons replacing the line of five. As fake plastic guitars go, this one looks pretty sweet and much less like a Fisher-Price product.
Are you ready to dive into the world of Guitar Hero again? We certainly are, but we're also keen to see what Rock Band has up it's sleeve. For more details on Guitar Hero Live, check out Jon's reveal post.
It's official: Guitar Hero Live is happening.
Coming to PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Wii U and helmed by DJ Hero developer Freestyle Games, the latest entry in the series plans to take things in a radical new direction. Boasting that "it's about to get real," the idea is to make you feel like a rock god with a first person view that shows an FMV crowd reacting to your music, on top of hundreds of playable music videos.
There's also a new peripheral... that sadly isn't backwards compatible. Watch the trailer and let's do this thing.Click here to read more...

It's a fairly mediocre selection with one saving grace in the form of Pandora's Tower, which will release as a Wii download for £13.49 in its first week before reverting back to £17.99.

Though not a great game, Mario Party 10 is a fun casual distraction, which you can get with an Amiibo cheaper than buying them separately. Yes, even if you pick up the solus game from Gameseek for £22.95.
Wow. Have you seen that video? Xenoblade Chronicles X is one of our most eagerly awaited games and this is the cheapest preorder price we've seen by some distance. Use the voucher code below to get 10% off the regular price.
The first Xenoblade Chronicles is one of the best RPGs of the last decade but is increasingly rare and expensive on the original Wii. A 3D remaster is headed to the New 3DS soon. In fact you can order Xenoblade Chronicles 3D for just £26.73 if you use the same discount code. Xenoblade Chronicles X looks set to really blow the lid off the genre though with a gorgeous world to explore driving or flying around with your mech, getting into scraps with it or maybe hopping out and enjoying some melee fights of your own. There are so many reasons to own a Wii U already, but this is the exclusive that Ninty should be really proud of.
Man, this discount code is giving us a workout today. Earlier this week we ran a post with a roundup of the cheapest deals for Lego Jurassic World, but this code has provided even better deals! You've seen the Lego Jurassic World trailer and you know you want this. So here are links to the best deal on every format, don't forget to you the discount code at the checkout.
Lego Jurassic World is set to be a comprehensive title featuring not just the events from the new Jurassic World movie, but the original trilogy too. That's a lot of collectibles to look forwards to. Expect voice-overs from the movies along with playable dinosaurs and recreations of the most iconic scenes from the series like the T-rex chase, the cliffhanger trailers and many more.
We're super psyched for the new Lego Dimensions toys-to-life series, but boy is Lego expensive! Fortunately, today's much-loved discount code is valid on all Lego Dimensions preorders. This includes the larger Starter Packs and the Fun Packs (minifig and vehicle). You'll find links below for all the Starter Packs and you can find all the Fun Packs (compatible with all platforms) here. These discounted prices are considerably cheaper than any other pre-order we can find. So it may be worth hopping on early.
Concerned about preordering so early? VGB do charge straight away at the moment, but you can cancel your order for a refund at any time before dispatch. Also, their Price Promise policy means if the price goes down again you're covered, but won't pay more if it goes up and if you can find a cheaper deal, they'll match it. Preorders come with £1's worth of loyalty points too.
Find out why we're so excited with this article: Lego Dimensions: how the magic of Lego could dethrone Skylanders.
Lego Dimensions has just been announced, finally confirming the rumours that Warner Bros Interactive were getting in on the toys-to-life genre that has flourished in recent years with the likes of Skylanders, Disney Infinity and more recently, Amiibos.
As adult gamers, we're often quite cynical about this burgeoning genre, as it often seems like an exploitative cash grab designed to prey upon the pester power of kids on their parents. Or as we've seen with the Amiibos, honing in on your most loyal fans with toys that add very little to a gaming experience and even worse, releasing limited numbers of some of them, making fans snap them up even sooner, before the eBay merchants get them all. Worse yet, most of these toys add nothing to a game that couldn't have just been DLC.
But, why are we getting excited about Lego Dimensions? Isn't it just going to be more of the same and Traveller's Tales aren't exactly known for messing with a winning formula? I'll tell you, because Lego Dimensions is actually going to include Lego. Real Lego pieces for you to build with. 269 of them in the Starter Pack.
As fun as the Lego games have been over the years (especially in multiplayer), you've never had to build anything in-game, with the exception of a brief item placing minigame seen in Lego Lord of the Rings, which never made an appearance in the Lego Hobbit game. But then again if they can cut a whole film from their plans (Five Armies DLC was cancelled), I shouldn't have been surprised to see corners cut elsewhere.Click here to read more...
As per usual, Nintendo are set to refresh and update the 3DS and Wii U eShop at midnight tonight, bringing new content and deals to the table. In terms of new software, Affordable Space Adventures is launching at £16.99 on Wii U, while Pokemon Rumble World released yesterday as another 3DS free to play experiment.
The deals, meanwhile, are... how best to put this? There's a technical term we use in the game criticism trade: pants.

Mario Kart 8 has been feeling the need for speed for a while now. So we're delighted to hear that Nintendo is bringing back the 200cc motors. This new comparison video shows how fast they are compared to the 150cc vehicles, which are currently the fastest rides in Mario Kart 8.
Yes, Nintendo. So much yes. The 150cc karts feel a little slow to be honest, but this injection of speed should see us knocking a third off our best lap times and we can't wait for the new motors to land as a FREE update on April 23rd. On the same day a new paid DLC bundle will be available with two new characters and eight new tracks. Consider us tempted.
If you have any GameCube controllers you want to use on your Wii U for Mario Kart 8 or Super Smash Bros, be sure to pick up this cheap Gamecube to Wii U controller adapter for £9.99. Check out the new trailer below.Click here to read more...
Mario Party 10 only released last month already the prices are plummeting. By all accounts this crazy board game/party game hybrid is fun in multiplayer, but misses a few steps.
However, if you fancy a laugh and preferably own a decent Amiibo collection, you can now pick it up for just £22.99 at Gameseek.
That's its lowest price yet, and another stunning deal from Gameseek who are fast becoming the cheapest place to buy Wii U software.
