Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Xbox 360 – £14.99 delivered
There's been so many attempts to make a decent 3D Castlevania, to varying degrees of success, that I think I've lost count. This latest one is a collaboration between Spanish developer MercurySteam and that brilliant nutter behind the Metal Gear series, Hideo Kojima. Christian gave it a solid 8/10, and had this to say about it:
"Even though the wait continues for a 3D Castlevania that truly matches the elegance, complexity and spatial intelligence of the 2D games, this is a polished and enjoyable blast of musty Gothic action in its own right."
Deal of the Week
Brink - £31.75 delivered on Xbox 360, £31.75 delivered on PS3 & £21.85 delivered on PC (apply coupon "BHB2" for the PC version and coupon "BHB3" on the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions to get these prices – the PC version registers on Steam)
This was the game that commanded the biggest queues at last year's Eurogamer Expo, as people snaked round the booth from open till close. I even saw a few people finish a round and rejoin the queue again at the back.
It's out in just a couple of weeks, but these coupons expire on the 3rd, so make sure to get your order in before then if you want it at this price.
Quinns got his grubby mitts on this back in February. Hopefully PSN will be back up by the time this is out on the 5th, but you might want to get it on either of the other formats if you can just to be on the safe side...
