Usually when things are heavily discounted like that, V2.0 is close by.


Not sure about that - they said back in May the Rift was to be the companies flagship VR headset for another 2 years, at least.

Oculus said a lot of things about about the CV1 that wasn't true.

One for each room. The Echo Dot is only a little thing.

You could trade the games and extra controller in and basically get a PS4 for £120...

CEX will give you £22 for the controller alone (or £30 credit).

In fact, the entire deal is worth £188 at CEX, or £240 worth of CEX vouchers.

If you want to check how long you have left on your current subscription its quite hard to do but if you log into your account , go to the media tab and look at anything you have bought with PS+ you'll get an expiry date next to it - thats when your current PS+ is due to expire

So mines was due to expire on the 1st of October

Jotun is free on Steam and GoG: http://store.steampowered.com/app/32358 ... a_Edition/

I have no idea what Jotun is but the same guys are doing that Sundered game which is about to be released and looks interesting.



Anyhoo, Jotun is apparently quite short about 4-6 hours long and free so why not give it a punt, hmmm? According to Steam Zaphod already has it so maybe he can tell us if it's any good?

I had it on my a Steam list bit took it off during a recent cull because the reviews on Steam itself made it sound pretty weak. I might give it a shot for free though.

I've stopped playing Zelda to play Jotun.

The world is cool, the protagonist a lady, the art style is real nice and there's some badass levels. Ok, I've played three, but they were great: the opener with a rather surprising boss, one in a blizzard and one on a giant frozen lake with this massive beast lurking just under the water. It's certainly got its own identity.

If you were fortunate to get it for free, I'd suggest playing it.

On the subject of female protagonists, Skullgirls and a load of DLC is 74p (Steam) for the next 19 hours or so. Although I already own, the game, I've never got round to it, but it seems to have decent reviews.

I grabbed it over the weekend and will definitely be giving it a shot.

I am tempted by Titanfall 2 but I will probably just play the campaign (which by all accounts is rock solid but short) - worth it for £16?

Also maybe VR Invaders (which looks like it could be a decent Space Pirate Simulator type of thing) and the VR version of Dying Reborn because these kind of escape puzzle games are brilliant in VR.

I'd say yes. It's also not that short, reckon it took me about 8-10 hours.

Apparently, EE customers can get 6 months of Apple Music for free by texting music to 150.

I haven’t tried this myself but I’ve heard it from a friend who works for EE.
