The price of Zombie Army Trilogy is taking it's time to come down, but this is one of the best prices we've seen.
Here's a sample of Carl's review: "Its level design may be repetitious, especially on solo play, and it may not innovate on the genre or the Sniper Elite franchise, but if you’re looking for some competitive co-op fun that prioritises non-stop action over narrative, Zombie Army Trilogy hits the mark, and then some."

After years of rumours, the classic property tycoon title Constructor is getting a HD remake by its creators at 3Systems. Coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC, we even have an official release date of January 29, 2016. It is being labeled as a "reimagining" of the original PC game released in 1997, where players are charged with building up a property empire of business and rented housing, while hiring degenerates to harass and drive their rivals out of business.
"Constructor is a game I took great joy in creating, and having the chance to delve into its universe once again has been incredible," said development head John Twiddy in a press release issued today. "A whole generation adored the original. I, along with the original collaborators, am delighted to be showcasing Constructor’s unique charm to a whole new audience."
I'll admit that I wasn't very good at Constructor back in the day, but I did enjoy its unique personality in-between all the hippies coming along and ruining my properties. We suspect we'll learn more about Constructor HD next week when Gamescom is in full swing.
[Update: If you're not bothered about the Crown Edition on PS4, you can pay just £28.50 at CoolShop]
Been waiting for a hot deal for The Elder Scrolls Online: Tamriel Unlimited on PS4 and Xbox One? This £30 deal is currently the cheapest price, although we've seen it for a bit less in recent weeks. On the plus side, this is the Crown Edition of the game, coming with 750 in-game crowns.
Don't worry about online subscription fees, they were dropped long ago for this title. There's plenty to do in the main game, but when you're done, take a look at the Imperial City DLC. Still not sure? Take a look at Jon's console review.

Parents, do not let your children see this trailer! There's no way they'll not want a piece of Lego Dimensions after seeing this. And how are you going to play it if you have to share with the little blighters?
Today's trailer gives us the biggest look yet at the story for Lego Dimensions, the new name in the toys-to-life genre that we're already trading in our Skylanders and Disney Infinity tat for. The mind-boggling mashup of characters and worlds including Batman, Lord of the Rings, Back to the Future and The Wizard of Oz looks like the sort of toybox-inspired fun that's going to be a blast to play. It's not going to be cheap, but we've hunted down the best deals for preorders if you want to get involved at launch. You'll save a small fortune compared to an impulse buy on the high street too.Click here to see the trailer and deals.
Fancy saving a few quid on the latest version of Dead or Alive 5 on Xbox One? Then check out this hot offer that sees the game slashed to £15.99, possibly the best price yet.
This new-gen version of the fighter is bursting with fighters, extra costumes, new stages and as per usual with the series - all the cleavage. Boob mania aside, Dead or Alive 5 is a seriously slick fighter. If you find the likes of Mortal Kombat or Injustice a bit too clunky, you should give DOA a go as the combat feels much faster and easier to pick up.
Thanks to Ninjin00.
Life is Strange is becoming known for killer WTF endings to each episodes, making that damn six week gap between episodes absolutely excruciating. Don't worry I'm keeping up the habit of not giving away any past plot events for those of you waiting for the season to wrap up before diving in, Netflix-style.
The opening section of Episode 4 is a radical departure for the story given the ending of the last entry. Max's whole reality is seen from a new point of view. There are new entries in her SMS log, a new group of friends and her relationship with Chloe has transformed.
Expect to sit back and listen to a lot of dialogue for the first hour in a scene that goes on a bit too long without much meaningful player interaction. Don't worry though, the narrative sucker punches you without warning before you get too impatient.Click here to read more...
Battlefield: Hardline turned out way better than we originally hoped and stiff competition this year has seen the price drop rather nicely. So much so in fact, you can get Hardline on PS4 or Xbox One for just £22.99.
Unlike Battlefield 3 and 4, Hardline has a rather decent campaign mode putting you in the shoes of an LA Cop in a faux-episodic take on the shooter series. Sure you can spot every back-stabbing a mile off, but the performances from some reassuringly familiar faces ensures you'll stick with it until the end. The multiplayer side of the game lacks that huge open-ground feel of the usual Battlefield games, but there's some co-ordinated cops vs robbers modes to enjoy in teams and the vehicular hotwire mode is heaps of fun. Check out Battlefield: Hardline Review - Campaign brings home the bacon for more details.
Thanks to Irah.
Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition has held its value incredibly well since release. But if you need to scratch that itch for the best action RPG on the market, here are your cheapest deals for Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition on consoles.
I'm 70 hours in and yet to get bored with Diablo III. It's the co-op that's really pulled me in, I can't think of a game that I've played more in couch co-op since Street of Rage 2 or Dragon's Crown. With controls perfectly mapped to the controller, this was well worth the wait on consoles and is regularly patched with updates and tweaks that make it worth coming back to time and time again.
Today's flash deal from TGC is giving Xbox One owners the chance to get Mortal Kombat X for under £30, slightly undercutting the next cheapest deal elsewhere. Brutal combat mechanics, paired with a range of new characters and an enjoyable story mode meant that we called MKX "[the] first essential fighting game of the new generation of consoles" when we reviewed it a few months back. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII @ HUKD!
Be sure to read our Mortal Kombat X review for more details!
The price has tumbled yet get for this Limited Edition making it slightly cheaper than lowest-priced standard edition available. Along with a copy of the game in a steelbook case, you'll also get a Physical Map book featuring all the maps available in the game, and the Grunt Funeral Skull DLC to liven up the in-game carnage. It's certainly a good way to keep you busy until Halo 5 arrives later this year, especially now that the multiplayer matchmaking has finally been sorted out. Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII for the find!

Batman: Arkham Knight is a hot contender for Game of the Year. It's best played on PS4 or Xbox One, rather than the dodgy PC port, so take a look at these £32.85 deals that are comfortably the best prices around. These copies also come with the Harley Quinn DLC. This is the best price seen so far, aside from a brief glitch on Amazon, where many orders were cancelled by the retailer anyway.
Is it any good? Well, here's a short version of my review: "Rocksteady and Batman is a combination we'll sorely miss. Their trilogy ends on a high though, with a refinement of their excellent Freeflow combat and Predator modes. The Batmobile is a somewhat mixed experience, but its heart is in the right place. Our much-awaited tour of the city of Gotham was a gorgeous sight to behold and an unforgettable goodbye." Be sure to check out these articles too: Batman: Arkham Knight's Batmobile - Brilliant fun or a legacy betrayed? and Why Rocksteady quitting Batman after Arkham Knight is the right choice.
£14.85 will get you a brand new copy of The Crew on Xbox One, saving you £4 compared to the next best deal. If you want to save a bit more, you can get a preowned copy for just £11.99.
Still not sure? check out Jon's full review, or take a look at the short version: "The Crew's magnificent automotive American playground and high-octane multiplayer road trips are sensational, but the tragedy is that Ubisoft and Ivory Tower didn't know when to stop. Its irredeemably dreadful storyline, grim personality, invasive premium currency, miserly economy, deeply inconsistent event quality and always-on restrictions are all unnecessary yet wilfully sabotage what should have been a masterpiece. There's still fun to be had here, but approach in a deal with a crew of your own or steer well clear. 6/10"
Dragon Age: Inquisition racked up a few Game of the Year awards in 2014 and PS4 and Xbox One owners can now pick up a new copy for just £24.
Inquisition proved to be so much more than a way to pass the time before The Witcher III arrived and should be snapped up by any RPG fan (and yes, it's way better than the last game). By the time you've finished this lengthy epic, you never know, The Witcher III may be a bit cheaper too.

We're getting a new Hitman game on December 8th. Usually, this would be cause for celebration. But instead, we're very concerned about what is could mean for gamers and the way video games are released. If you hadn't heard, Hitman will only release digitally this year, at the full price of $60/£40. However, it won't be a finished product, not even close.
IO Interactive said: "What we release on December 8th is not the full game. It's a sizable chunk of it. Throughout 2016 we'll release more locations and missions until the story arc is done and finished. All of that content is included in the $60 price."
We've had successful episodic releases before with The Walking Dead, Resident Evil Revelations 2 and Life is Strange, but they've been a fraction of the price (about £15 for a Season Pass) and we've had a good idea of what we're getting into. Better yet, there's usually a demo, or the first episode generally only costs a few notes. If you don't like it, you're not out of pocket that much.
Square-Enix want you to buy a part (sorry, "sizable chunk") of the game for full price, with an IOU promise that the rest of it will turn up eventually. It's not quite the same as an Early Access title as IO is keen to iterate: "Early Access can often mean something unfinished or unpolished. That's simply not the approach we're taking," and "All of the content we release live to our players will be complete and polished, whether that's the locations and missions we release on December 8th, the live events or the locations and missions that we will release in 2016. It will always be a polished Hitman experience."Click here to read more...
The Witcher III: Wild Hunt has a Season Passes available on the XBL/PSN store for £19.99, but we've found them for a very tempting £17.10. To get a 5% discount, go to the retailer's Facebook page and click the link. You don't have to enter an email address, just enter any text and press enter for a code.
This pass will grant you access to the upcoming expansion content for the game. The developers have said that the content will offer an additional 30 hours of additional quests with unique items, weapons and enemies. The pass includes the Hearts of Stone expansion, which could see the return of an old character from an early game and should last about ten hours. The Blood and Wine expansion will take part in a newly-designed map for the game and last 20 hours. Compared to the season passes offered for the likes of Batman and Destiny, CD Projekt Red are looking like they'll be providing tremendous value. Not that there isn't plenty to do in the main game already.
Metro Redux offers great value for money by giving two fantastic shooters from last-gen and giving them a loving remaster and more as listed below. This is a great excuse to catch up on the series, especially for PS3 owners that may have missed out when the first game only visited the 360. PS4 owners can get it for £13.99, while the XO version is £1 more.
More than just a visual facelift for the series, Metro Redux has put some extra effort in to tempt a spend. Metro 2033 has extra animations (such as the mask wipe from the sequel) and the weapon handling has been reworked too. Both games are now playable in Ranger and Survival modes too for a harsher challenge. All the Season Pass content for Last Light is included, adding an extra ten hours of single player content. This is well worth a look if you missed out on the games last gen.

Could this be the episode that sees the promising series finally stop treading water? After Episode 3's ending, we'd certainly expect so. The new trailer looks like the search for Rachel Amber and the foreseen storm are going to feature heavily in the next part of Max's adventure.
In other news, the series has already reached one million sales. Here's to hoping Dontnod won't make us wait another six weeks for the final episode.Click here to see the new trailer.
The Nostromo Edition of Alien: Isolation is back on offer on for Xbox One, with a rather tasty £12.99 offer. This deal is even cheaper than the regular version at most sites! We've seen this £1 cheaper in the Amazon Prime sale, but this is the best price by £4 today.
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 till the best Aliens game in years. The Nostromo Edition comes with the Crew Expendable DLC starring the original cast of the first movie.
Thanks to oUkTuRkEyIII.
