Tales From The Borderlands: Episode 3 - Catch A Ride Review | Quality Time

Tales From The Borderlands: Episode 3 - Catch A Ride makes a worrying first impression.

An attempt at rendering an all-out battle spotlights the clunky limitations of the engine, the voice acting is surprisingly unconvincing and badly mixed during the opening section, while a limp instant-fail action sequence crawls out of the woodwork. The first few minutes feel oddly rushed and to be honest I was concerned.

Was Tales From The Borderlands about to bottom out after two great episodes? Was this the tipping point? Thankfully, as it turns out, the shaky start is just a blip in another exceptional piece of interactive storytelling. All is forgiven as a choice, a death, a road trip and some fantastic new characters propel Rhys and Fiona into one of Telltale's best adventures yet.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist Ultimatum Edition is back down to £7 on Xbox 360

After all the terrible advertising, it turned out that Blacklist was actually a really good game with an open-ended approach to things that allowed us players to play pretty much however we wanted, whenever we wanted. Pure stealth? Gunplay? Mix and match? The choice is yours.

You're also able to choose the Ultimatum Edition, which includes a collector's watch, comic, DLC and a collector's box, for just £7.00 on Xbox 360. It's the UK/Nordic version, but the pack and game is in English. Thanks to takle2015 @ HUKD!

These awesome niche Xbox 360 exclusives deserve the Xbox One backwards compatibility treatment

Xbox One backwards compatibility was confirmed at E3 2015, and better yet, it works a treat. Unfortunately Microsoft has to individually bring games to the service with publisher permission, meaning that it's likely they'll start with the biggest and highest-profile third party titles before moving onto more niche games.

It's a shame, because the Xbox 360 has a host of incredible exclusives that came straight out of left-field or deliver totally unique experiences. Here are just a few of those wonderful niche games, whether released on disc or digitally, that deserve the backwards compatibility treatment eventually.

Ace Combat 6

These awesome niche Xbox 360 exclusives deserve the Xbox One backwards compatibility treatment

Ace Combat 6 is one of our favourite games in the entire legendary series. Offering exquisite visuals, a sensational multi-character story and some of the most intense and ridiculous boss fights in the series, it was a glorious arcade flight sim that soared well above Assault Horizon.

On the one hand it was a shame that Ace Combat 6 was Xbox 360 exclusive, but on the other, I owned an Xbox 360 and it was delicious.

Rice Digital's ULTIMIKU voucher returns - get Hatsune Miku Project Diva F 2nd for £13.50

We love localised Japanese games here at Dealspwn -- as our regulars know -- and Rice Digital have brought back a seriously cheap deal for two of our recent favourites. The brilliant vocaloid rhythm game Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F and OTT fighter Persona 4 Arena Ultimax are both £15 (already an excellent price), which can be brought down to a seriously tasty £13.50 using their reactivated voucher code.

"Project Diva F 2nd ups the challenge and delivers a seriously intense rhythm experience," I wrote in our 8/10 review. "A diverse setlist, exceptional Vita visuals, satisfying gameplay and plenty of unlockables."

It's still the cheapest price ever for Project Diva F 2nd and the cheapest around for P4A Ultimax.

Max Payne 3 is only £3.85 on Xbox 360

Max Payne 3's Brazilian setting stops Rockstar's sequel from realising the series' trademark noir style, but if you're a fan of jumping around in slow motion and sliding down walls while peppering foes with bullets, you could do a lot worse for £3.85. That's a physical copy including delivery, which has to be worth a punt.

Thanks, Turkey!

Xbox One backwards compatibility really works - and could be a killer feature

Real surprises are often few and far between at E3, but we've had plenty so far this year. One of the biggest came from Microsoft, who stunned audiences during yesterday's Media Briefing by announcing that Xbox One would soon be backwards compatible with Xbox 360 games.

This is a big deal.

Not only have we been told that backwards compatibility is impossible this generation -- because it technically is -- but it's a massive step forwards for us gamers from a company who are often very slow to move in any direction. It's an astonishing statement, and more astonishing still, it really works.

Xbox Live Deals With Gold - time to treat yourself to Storm Island

The Xbox Live Deals Of The Week are now live on Xbox One and Xbox 360. They're a motley collection to be totally honest, but there are a couple of highlights worth mentioning.

First of all, Forza Horizon 2's Storm Island DLC is now 50% off. £8 might still seem pricey, but as you can read in our Storm Island review, it's a price well worth paying. Guacamelee is also worth picking up for £2.80 if you missed its stint as a free Game With Gold. On Xbox 360, both Bad Company games are under a fiver apiece.

Gears Of War 3 might not have deserved the praise, but has to be worth £1.99 used

Gears Of War 3 might not have deserved the praise, but has to be worth £1.99 used

We awarded Gears Of War 3 a perfect 10/10 back in 2011, but I'm not entirely sure why. The multiplayer was genuinely excellent but the singleplayer was uniquely weak, managing to be broadly forgettable with a few memorable moments... that were either massive plot holes, cop-outs or hamfisted wastes of decent characters.

I'm up for a debate, but more importantly I also have to point out that you can get a copy for less than £2 delivered! Which is well worth it.

Thanks to speedypunkiemac @ HUKD!

PREVIEW | Metal Gear Solid V: Mother Base, development and kidnapping your own private army (Part 2)

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain has an incredible open world to explore and exploit. You'll discover resources to collect, from raw diamonds to processed metals medicinal herbs. You'll use helium balloons to extract unconscious enemy personnel and even animals, whisking them away via helicopter. You'll even find saucy posters, music and propaganda.

All of which gets sent back to Mother Base, your home away from home. Jutting out of the beautiful blue waters of the Seychelles, this offshire platform is more than just a place to lick your wounds: it's your lifeline. Throughout the game you'll develop and grow it, kidnapping your own private army who'll develop new technology, provide intel and even accompany you into battle. Including a dog who'll grow from pup to companion... and a notorious mute sniper.

It's an amazing set of management mechanics that, while stolen from heavily influenced by Peace Walker, make Metal Gear Solid V even more in-depth.

PREVIEW | Metal Gear Solid V's open world is enormous, radical & utterly incredible (Part 1)

Metal Gear Solid V is enormous, radical and already rather brilliant.

Having played six-and-a-half solid hours of it at a recent preview event, I can confirm that if this is Hideo Kojima's last game with Konami, he'll be going out with a bang. Blending open-world exploration with an extraordinary amount of gameplay freedom and choice, it's like nothing you've ever seen before yet still unmistakeably Metal Gear. Let me explain in a preview so big that I've had to split it in half!

The game begins nine years after the tragic events of Ground Zeroes, as Snake wakes up in hospital and all manner of bizarre madness goes down. Konami have sworn me to secrecy and that's a good thing too, since you wouldn't believe me if I actually told you. Seriously, a flying fire whale is involved at one point. It's a fascinating sequence that builds on last year's teasers and has major ramifications for both singleplayer and multiplayer.

PREVIEW | Metal Gear Solid V's open world is enormous, radical & utterly incredible (Part 1)

But you'll have to experience it for yourself. Ultimately Snake emerges not as Naked, Solid or even Big Boss, but as Punished "Venom" Snake, a broken shadow of his former self sporting a bionic arm and a massive metal horn protruding through his forehead and lodged within his frontal cortex. It's up to this once-great hero to rebuild a new mercenary outfit, The Diamond Dogs, and get his revenge on CIPHER and the Skull Face Man in the process. One assassination, mission or tranquillised vulture attached to a helium balloon at a time.

First things first, though, I had to save Miller.
