Staff Picks 27th March – 66% off Castle of Illusion, The Cave and The Club

It's the end of the working week, two days of solid gaming beckon, and we have new Staff Picks for you!

Square Enix Sale – 75% off Deus Ex titles

I may have done a little dance when the new Deus Ex game was announced (which, given that I'm a chunky 6'3 afro'd megabeast, really wasn't that little) and we have 75% off on all of the Deus Ex titles this weekend.

SEGA Savings – up to 75% off on Alpha Protocol, Binary Domain, Condemned and more

So. Many. Deals. Yup, this weekend we have three huge publisher sales on, not to mention a plethora of discounts elsewhere. We've teamed up with SEGA for a whole bunch of 75% off bargains on some cracking titles, and here are a few highlights.

Deep Silver Deals – Metro Redux half-price for 48 hours

If you're an FPS fan, but maybe looking for something a little bit different, then the Metro series comes highly recommended. 4A's grim, post-apocalyptic shooters are both fantastic, and they look even better thanks to a spit and polish for the Redux versions.

Better yet, the Metro Redux double pack, and the individual Metro 2033 Redux and Metro: Last Light Redux titles are 50% off for 48 hours this weekend!

COMPETITION | Win Mortal Kombat X – Design your own Kombatant

We passed 70,000 followers this week on Twitter over on the Green Man Gaming channel, and to say thanks and celebrate this milestone, we're giving away seven copies of Mortal Kombat X.

Binary Domain – Playfire Rewards Friday

Maybe it's the deliciously satisfying procedural damage. Perhaps it could be the themes and motifs pulled from a hundred and one of my favourite works of science fiction; from films such as The Terminator, Dark City and Blade Runner, to the writings of Asimov, Clarke, and Heinlein. It could be the cheesy B-movie-esque characterisation and the throwaway one-liners. Whatever the reason, there's something I just utterly love about Binary Domain.

With some incredible boss battles, slick gunplay, and a cracking story, Binary Domain tis a wonderfully cathartic little title. 

Blowing the legs off of a horde of stampeding robots never felt so good 

Deep Silver Deals and Playfire Rewards Thursday – save 75% on Killer Is Dead: Nightmare Edition

I love Suda51's unbridled creativity. You look at any of the games he's led direction on and you can instantly tell that it's a Suda title. No More Heroes, Killer7, and Lollipop Chainsaw were all incredibly slick and stylish titles, and the same can be said of the excellent Killer Is Dead.

We've got 75% off on the PC version – Killer Is Dead: Nightmare Edition – for the next 48 hours.

Top Five... GTA Characters Of All-Time

It's Thursday afternoon, and that can only mean one thing here on the GMG/Playfire Blog... it's Top Five time!

With everyone going GTA mad this week (share your favourite GTA memories and gameplay anecdotes here) I thought it'd be a nice idea to take a little trip back through the series and pick out five of the best characters to grace the streets of Rockstar's open-world blockbusters.

Honourable Mentions: Auntie Poulet, OG Loc, assorted Hare Krishnas, Ken Rosenberg, Love Fist, Tony Prince.

GTA Online Shark Cards now available on GMG – top up your digital wallet!

Money matters, cash is king, wonga wins. You get the idea.

To be a big spender in Los Santos can sometimes be a little time-consuming, but we're pleased to announce that you can now purchase GTAO Shark Cards to top up your digital wallet over on the GMG Store now.

War of the Roses & War of the Vikings – Playfire Rewards Wednesday

Imagine for a moment the sweeping, epic nature of a Battlefield match. Now replace all of the soldiers and marines with knights, and swap the guns out for massive, awesome swords and longbows. Now imagine that instead of the 21st century (or the 20th for that matter) it's several centuries earlier.

You've pretty much arrived at War of the Roses.

Today, we've got rewards on War of the Roses: Kingmaker and its follow-up successor, War of the Vikings, giving you the chance to earn GMG credit while you bash your mates upside the head with a fat lance or battleaxe.

What's your favourite GTA memory or moment from the series? #GMGasks

Another Hump Day, another round of #GMGasks!

GTA V is out now for PC, and in light of that, it only seems right to have a little chat today about some of the funniest, most impressive, and downright outrageous things people have done in the glorious sandboxes that the GTA series has given us over the years.

With that in mind, today's #GMGasks is this: what is your favourite GTA memory?

WIN GTA V – Green Man Gaming and Origin PC partner up for awesome giveaway

If you're a PC gamer, it's all about GTA V right now. Rockstar's leviathan has finally rolled out on PC, and it's pretty much all anyone's talking about – a dazzling game that absolutely sparkles if you have a decent rig.

Speaking of decent rigs (or indeed blisteringly fast towers of awesomeness) we've partnered up with the excellent Origin PC to giveaway a bunch of copies of GTA V.

Mortal Kombat X – Playfire Rewards Tuesday

Happy Mortal Kombat Day everyone!

Yes, Netherrealm's gory beat-em-up is finally with us, and we have a new batch of Playfire Rewards to celebrate the return of Scorpion, Sub-Zero and co.!

Guitar Hero Live is A Thing! New trailer, new info, new guitar

It's back!

Now that we've had a few years to get over our fatigue of plastic peripherals, it's time rock out with our freshly-constructed, new-design fake guitars, do some kick jumps off of the sofa once again, and pretend just for a moment and we can play like Hendrix.

Guitar Hero Live is totally A Thing, and it looks... different.

Deep Silver Deals – Save 75% on the Dead Island series

Howdy folks. We've got some absolutely killer Deep Silver deals going on this week, with up to 75% off on blockbuster titles from the Saints Row, Metro, Risen, and Sacred series, and more.

Today, though, it's all about a bit of discounted, B-movie-esque zombie slaughter!
