Friday Frugal Findings - 29th April 2011

If you're in the UK at the moment or anywhere else in the world come to think of it and you're like me, you'll be hiding under the bed just in case you hear the words Royal and Wedding. Which will no doubt send you into a frightful rage ending up with you bludgeoning some fecker to death with their own shoes. If this sound familiar then take my advice. There is no way to avoid eejits going on about this nonsense for at least the next week or so, the only solution is to not go outside, don't answer the phone and for the love of Christ keep the TV and Radio off. Only thing to do then? That’s right, check out our gaming deals for this week and we’ll promise to do our best to keep nuptials and blue-bloods out of it. Our day will come Comrades, our day will come…

Alan Wake; Xbox 360 at Amazon UK
£7.70/$12.83/8.64 Euro

A game that first went into development when Isambard Kingdom Brunel was only a glint in his father’s eye and like most games that take this long to surface, they never quite live up to the hype. Although not a title that will have your arse glued to the couch for more than a few hours it does have its moment.

Bioshock 2; Xbox 360 at Amazon UK
£5.40/$8.99/6.06 Euro

There was a certain amount of sneering about Bioshock’s sequel upon release, all we can tell you is if you loved the first outing then get your thumbs around this one and at this price you won’t be disappointed.

Dead Rising 2; PS3 at Gamestation
£12.98/$21.64/14.47 Euro

Zombies, Zombies, Zombies, if you can’t get enough of them, here’s a game with more that you can shake a chainsaw at. Reviewed
here when first released.

Lucius; PC at
£17.99/£30.01/20.23 Euro

Here’s one I’ve been keeping my one good eye on for the last few months. At the moment this title is looking a lot like a horror movie which I’m guessing the producers couldn’t get the naming rights to. Lucius is the son of the Devil and its your job to help him off people to gain enough dark powers to take over the world. Well if you call your kid Lucius, its hard to imagine him growing up to be an accountant. Lace Mamba’s latest title is due for release on 11th June.

Call of Juarez: The Cartel Story Trailer

For 'Call of Juarez: The Cartel' the developers have put down the Winchesters and picked up their assault rifles and are promising a blood filled trip down to Mexico dishing out some wild west style justice, but in the modern world... Confused? - Good! Developed by Techland and published by Ubisoft, Call of Juarez has a release date of summer 2011. Is it just me or does the guy at the end of the trailer look like Triple H ??

Wii 2 - a bigger stronger wii

"We will show a playable model of the new system and announce more specifications at the E3 Expo, which will be held June 7-9, 2011, in Los Angeles," the company said in a brief statement.

The new Wii 2 is promising to have more power than the PS3 and Xbox 360, and be backwards compatible with current Wii titles.

The console aka Project Café will also have a new, tablet-shaped controller. With a 6-inch touch screen display, dual analog sticks, and has the ability to stream content directly from the console. And a Hi-Def 1080P output.

But wii will have to wait until E3 this year to see if Nintendo can live up to this mighty claim..

Wii 2 is currently expected to come in at around $350 to $400 or €237 to €270 approximately.
