Cheap This Week - 27/07/11

DNF! Old Republic! Arkham Asylum!

It's Wednesday, and that can only mean one thing: I'm back with yet another selection of the finest discount gaming offers to tempt your wallet with. Throughout the week you can keep your finger on the pulse of cut price gaming by checking SavyGamer.co.uk. Read on to find out what's cheap this week.

Here are this week's deals:

Batman: Arkham Asylum - 3.75

Cracking price for what I reckon is The Batman's finest hour in the field of games. Don't just take my word for it; Dan granted it a a highly sought after Eurogamer 9/10:

"Most of the gameplay concerns are minor when taken in the context of how much Arkham Asylum gets so gloriously right. Rarely does a game do a character justice in such a satisfying way. Arkham Asylum finds room for every major aspect of Batman's enduring appeal, and it does so in a game compelling enough to work even without its masked star. Fans of the caped crusader really shouldn't hesitate - this isn't just the best grown-up Batman game, it's the best superhero game, bar none."

The sequel is looking good too.

It's pretty clear that Bruce Wayne would be a PC gamer.

Duke Nukem Forever, Xbox 360 - 14.13 delivered

This is the Asian version, but it is in English, and totally region free. You probably won't be able to trade it in, but it's a saving of nearly 6 compared to the next best price.

The only real problem is that it's not very good. Dan dissected it in detail in his scathing 3/10 review:

"In the end, you feel every year of Duke Nukem Forever's ridiculous, fractured development seeping out of each unsatisfying frame. With four studios sharing title space in the opening animation, and end credits which run for almost 10 minutes, the weight of so many false starts, dead ends and endlessly revised design documents proves too much. For all his muscle and bravado, Duke Nukem is actually a fragile creature. His legacy is based on a specific combination of time and technology and a mercurial element of fun that simply doesn't lend itself to repetition, especially after so long in limbo."

But maybe you want to see this car crash for yourself. This is certainly better than paying full price for it.
