Titanfall is still a magnificent shooter. Accessible yet deep, ridiculously fun and empowering, mechanically peerless, it's well worth getting into even if the player count is now admittedly rather low. It's also an incredibly important game, directly responsible for the rush to include exciting vertical mechanics we see in most next-gen FPS titles these days.
If you want to get involved, you can buy a new Xbox 360 copy for £14.86. Remember that the DLC is free to download!
Alternatively you can buy Titanfall on Xbox One for £11.99 used.
The all-new expansion will put players behind the wheel of "iconic vehicles from the Fast & Furious film series," including new cars that will star in Furious 7, which might not suck too badly seeing as the series seems to be on an upward trend.
Most importantly, players do not need to have purchased or played Forza Horizon 2 in order to download and play it. So... do it?
Okay. Remain calm. Please don't spit on the screen or start screaming uncontrollably when I tell you that Resident Evil 6 is only £2.50 on Xbox 360 this weekend.
Now, I really liked Resident Evil 6. It may not be the horror game the series deserved, but it was a fun and varied action game that's an absolute hoot in co-op. Leon's section is superb, Chris' section is... okay, it's absolute shite... but then Jake and Sherry get a fantastic chapter of their own and naturally Ada shows up. I really enjoyed it as far as it went, especially in co-op, and for £2.50 I'd recommend it wholeheartedly. If only so you can actually play it before complaining about it some more.
I have to hand it to Telltale – releasing Episode 3 with absolutely no build-up via the usual channels was a very welcome surprise, but then again having to wait extended periods between releases is probably the reason why. I just hope that, with the TV show returning soon, it doesn’t become an excuse to drag out the wait (something Tales from the Borderlands’ players have had to suffer with.) Anyway, before we dive into our review for The Sword In The Darkness, here’s some links to our reviews of Episode 1: Iron From Ice, and Episode Two: The Lost Lords. As always with our episodic reviews, our score will be published once the season is finished, reflecting the game as a whole.
Despite some moments of progression, I felt that Episodes 1 and 2 were more about the setup of the story than anything, building up the world of Westeros before things inevitably come crashing down. While Episode 3 still continues that trend to a degree, there is definitely a sense of moving forward this time around. Choices appear to be more diverse, and actions from previous episodes are finally coming back to haunt the player. Perhaps most importantly, while the other episodes have done a great job in replicating the feel of the show, Episode 3 is the closest Telltale have come to nailing it perfectly, all of which makes The Sword In The Darkness the best instalment so far.

Want to experience one of the most gorgeous mecha-related series ever made? Zone of the Enders: HD Collection is now £6.95!
It's not the greatest restoration job in all honesty, but it is Zone Of The Enders running on a Microsoft platform. So that's something. Also, the games are still incredible. Thanks preparationiskey!
Fancy getting into one of the scariest games of recent years on Xbox 360? The Alien: Isolation Nostromo Steelbook Edition is now just £13.70.
It's a great deal for the Nostromo Edition, let alone the steelbook! Many thanks to bargain76 @ HUKD, who lives up to their username.
ScreamRide is one of the most unique Xbox exclusives we've played in years, and there are some good deals about at the moment.
Great prices, though the game itself doesn't quite make the most of its exciting premise. You'll create roller-coasters, ride them and destroy stuff in three separate career tracks, but the sense of fun is sometimes lacking despite a competent physics engine and surprisingly intuitive design suite. Check out our ScreamRide review for all the details.
Fancy trying out Diablo III for super cheap? Well, the PS3 and 360 versions are only £5.99 for a 'like new' copy.
While, we'd certainly recommend the Ultimate Evil Edition over this version, you're, looking at around £25 last-gen, or £35 on the newer consoles for that one. This deal is more for those of you who aren't sure if Diablo III is the sort of game you'd enjoy. £5.99 is a risk-free price, and you'll probably earn your money back if you resold it as this is half price compared to all other sites at the moment. Take a look at Jon's review of the console version for more information.
Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare's next map pack has been announced. Ascendance will include four new maps, the new Exo Zombie Episode, the OHM directed energy light machine gun/shotgun hybrid, the OHM Werewolf custom variant and the all-new Exo Grapple ability playlist that introduces the Exo Grapple ability to multiplayer.
Which should be suitably insane, seeing as you can use it to zip around the maps or brutally skewer your opponents. "Get over here!" More details on the new content and release dates below.Click here to read more...
Tesco are once again giving The Darkness II: Limited Edition away at the crazy price of £3.00.
The Darkness II is a decent sequel with a moody colour palette and gloriously gory quad-wielding combat, as you can simultaneously fire two guns while impaling foes with your nightmarish demon tentacles. Though I can't help but feel that it lacks some of the atmosphere of the first game, there's no denying that it's an absolute blast and a steal at £3.00.
Many thanks to Ace Hayward @ HUKD.
This is a seriously good deal. You'll get the decent first Far Cry, the magnificent yet misunderstood Far Cry 2, the masterpiece of mayhem that is Far Cry 3 and the cyberpunk brilliance of Blood Dragon in one convenient collection. Another great spot from BuzzDuraband!
Amazon have price matched but their stock seems to be incredibly low.
Tales From the Borderlands: Episode Two - Atlas Mugged is excellent, but I have to start this review with a bit of a moan.
Three months, Telltale. Three months.
I've always loved episodic series, whether Stingray, 24 or The Wolf Among Us. After each episode ends I have time to think about the cliffhanger, to debate it with my friends, to fantasize about what could happen and then finally sit down to enjoy the next one jangling with excitement. Binging cheats us out of this simple pleasure, and my 'Telltale routine' involves pouring a glass of half-decent red wine, switching my phone to silent and enjoying each new episode to the full.
Unfortunately, a quarter of a year goes from satisfying suspense to plain boredom and annoyance, and even Telltale know it. The fact that Atlas Mugged starts with an apology and overlong catch-up proves it, and frankly Telltale needs to publish and stick to firm release dates now. Hell, television series start next week at the exact same time. That's what makes the waiting bearable.
So it's a good thing that Zer0 Sum ended on such a satisfying bang, then. And that, as mentioned, Atlas Mugged does the business.Click here to read more...
Tales from the Borderlands: Episode One - Zer0 Sum was absolutely superb, and we've been waiting three months for the next instalment. Thankfully we'll now have to wait a few hours, as Episode 2 - Atlas Mugged releases at 18:00 on Steam!
It's already out on US PSN, and will be available tomorrow on EU PSN and Xbox Live. The mobile version is slated to launch on Thursday for Android and iOS.
If you fancy getting involved, Tales From The Borderlands is currently £14.24 on PC, which is even cheaper than Green Man Gaming's voucher code price. Meanwhile, PlayStation gamers can save a packet by picking up cheap PSN credit in our PlayStation + deals guide, while Xbox owners should browse our roundup of the cheapest ways to top up your Xbox Live account.
