Despite first appearances, there’s many a bargain to be had in this round of January sales on the games front, ranging from ultra-violent shooters to more soothing titles involving gigantic pets and Teenage Ninja Mutant Turtles. Let’s take a look at the best games deals of today so far.
The only game featuring a gun you can hack down trees with, super violent cover-and-run shooter Gears of War 4 has been reduced to £19.99 at Argos – a steep decrease from its usual £35+ new asking price.
It boasts all the trimmings associated with the series, like giant mutant centipedes and the simple joy of sawing otherworldly horrors in half. Gears of Wars 4 also adds killer robots, a leading female character and an array of new game modes and super-weapons. Drawing a lot from the 2006 original, this instalment is perfect for newcomers and long-time fans alike.
