Look at all those people. Playing new games. They think they’re better than you. They think just because they don’t have to eat cardboard, they can gloat about their new purchase of The Witcher 3 or Destiny’s DLC. WELL TWO CAN PLAY THAT GAME! Well, not really, because that’s the whole point of holding a grudge while being broke. But two people can indeed play a cheaper game, which is an analogy that I have no idea where I’m going with. Hit the page jump for cheap games then.

I must admit - I'm quite addicted to GTA V at the moment. While the recent release on PC has been keeping me busy with some truly fun online heists, it's the single-player that has me hooked. Sure it's often crass, sometimes silly and always far too serious for its own good, but it really is a fun ride to accompany the three crazy protagonists on. And who knows, we could finally get a bit more to chew on in the future.

I’m on the lookout for new manga to read. Naruto is pretty much finished once the current Seventh Hokage arc wraps up, Bleach is an exercise in stretching a plot with cool art and I’ve turned the Fairy Tail comics into a drinking game wherein I have a shot every time a character starts crying and WHAT YOO LOOKIN’ AT HUH? According to pals o’ mine however, I should be looking at an ongoing manga called The Heroic Legend of Arslan. A manga which features full metal pedigree, and is already getting a brand new game. A game which looks gorgeous.

Though I haven’t been able to play it (or anything else that isn’t a review game) for ages now, I have a lot of love for Arrowhead’s Helldivers. It’s a fantastic, team-based top-down shooter that takes the best things from Warframe and Destiny and gives them a new perspective. It’s also like the Starship Troopers game we never got - which means very quickly became one of my favourite PSN titles. And as we told you, it’s getting a bunch of free content. Here’s what that new free content is.

E3 is just a few weeks away, but EA felt necessary to share release date details about some of their most anticipated titles before taking the stage this year. Aside from Star Wars: Battlefront, the publisher is expected to give updates on the Mirror's Edge sequel, Titanfall and possibly new Plants vs. Zombie games. At the very least, we now know when they're all expected to hit shelves.

Revenge of the fifth? More like Revenge of the…sequel…ith…IT’S EARLY DAMMIT! Disney Infinity 3.0 finally gave up the goods and revealed itself to the world earlier. But it’s not the only new game in town. An older franchise is heading back. A franchise that was responsible for you wearing goofy baggy pants as a kid and listening to…hrrrnnngghhh…Limp Bizkit. probably. Yep, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 is pulling a 1080 resurrection with a half-pipe twist.

You may or may not have heard of Spark Unlimited. They were behind a few less-than-successful, not particularly critically acclaimed games, like Turning Point: Fall of Liberty and Legendary. More recently, they’ve been doing work for other publishers, working alongside Capcom to create the nearly decent Lost Planet 3 and the mostly-awful Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z. They’re now gone.

I'll forgive you for forgetting that Dragon Age: Inquisition, last year's stellar RPG epic, even had DLC. It's been ages since Jaws of Hakkon released as a little timed-exclusive package for Microsoft platforms (sorry 360, not you), but if you've waited with bated breath you can finally let out a sigh of relief. It's coming to every other platform, and pretty soon too.

Despite the perceptions you may come across on the internet, Destiny is still very much alive and kicking. It might not have the massive, mainstream appeal people expected it to have after launch, but there still seems to be a dedicated pocket of people who love the shooting, grinding and looting fun that Bungie has on offer. And if you hang around the PvP realm more often than others, Bungie is catering to you with House of Wolves.

It’s that time of the month again! What? The time when people loudly applaud the selection of great games they’re given as part of their PlayStation Plus subscriptions? The time when everybody gathers around a campfire, singing songs of mild worship directed at Sony and the instant games collection? Nope, it’s the time of the month where people moan and whine about getting those damned indie games.

Mega Man is dead. Capcom’s blue bomber is still a fan-favourite, but for whatever reasons, Capcom’s slowly killed him off over the past few years. Just about every game that would have featured the robotic lemon-slinger has been cancelled – leaving it up to other companies, like Nintendo, to keep his memory alive. There’s still hope. Mega-Man creator successfully kick-started Mighty No 9, a game that Mega Man in everything but name. It’s getting a retail release.
