15% off site-wide on eBay today (with code POWPOW15). I just got £50 off a camera lens, but there's bound to be some video-game related bargains to be had with that.

It was free on PS Plus within a year of launching.

The game itself isn't bad, it's just....not really doing much of anything different from Destiny 1, and Activision went full EA with the Microtransactions.

It was a load of gooseberry fool in the 90s, and it’s still a load of gooseberry fool, but it is only £4.99... Carmageddon Max Damage on Xbox One: https://www.game.co.uk/en/carmageddon-m ... ge-1075367

The brilliant Tearaway however is £2.99 on PS4: https://www.game.co.uk/en/tearaway-unfo ... ion-684007

Thanks, would be good to hear your views.

So I played for an evening, I'd say I had dropouts about 60% of the time which was disappointing (probably due to overseas latency being matched with whoever is still playing) but when it worked it was great. Plus some really weird stuff.. I think one guy was using an emulator and just doing weird gooseberry fool like spamming an emote 1000 times a second (followed by the confused emote by us other 2 which was funny, saw a lot of that :lol:). When your connection drops you get reconciliatory rupees but you want to complete the mission to get the loot so it's a bit of a bummer.

I did complete one dungeon and boss which went pretty smoothly. The boss was great.

I'd say it's worth picking up for the money, just try another day if it's being shite.

It's way more polished than I was expecting however, it's codeveloped with Grezzo (other 3DS remakes and Yoshi games I believe) but it feels like a 1st party game. Controls and animations etc. have the usual degree of polish.

Seems there is still a userbase for the game anyway. I'd give it a go again!

Edit: Triforce Heroes is back up to £15 on Amazon but Codename Steam is down to £2.68 :lol:

Thanks for the views on it. Looks like I will be giving it a miss. I may pick up Codename Steam at that price however as I'm enjoying Mario and Rabbids.

Tesco still do games online? I thought they'd basically abandoned online shopping for anything but food and drink items.

They’ve adopted the same set-up as Sainsbury’s now where you can have stuff delivered as part of your grocery shop.

That explains why when my mate bought FIFA 19 off them they made him walk through the drive-through click and collect. Was hilarious.

The best bit was when he had to get on all fours and make car noises

Unfortunately for me (but not for him) there were no other customers at the time, just a bemused member of staff.

Thanks for this. Just got Spider-man on PS4 from Shopto for under £25.

I'd say Batman VR is worth a punt at that price, though go in with the knowledge that there's zero replayability in there and it'll be over in an hour or so.
