Happy days for Series X players!
Another week into January, and this week actually represents one of the first BIG new releases of the year, which should make anyone happy who thought that after Christmas there might be a lack of new games to get your hands on!
GAME OF THE WEEK
The world of paid-for-assassinations has never really been done better than in the Hitman series, and by all accounts, Hitman III is one of - if not the - best the series has been to date (don't let the numerical title fool you, this is actually the eighth entry in the franchise).
Essentially, you're given six different playgrounds to take out your targets - ranging from air-dropping onto the world's tallest building, to an underground Berlin rave - and it is up to you how carefully, or not-so-carefully, you complete your mission. Will you find a high position and snipe them out? Dress up as a chef and poison their food? Whatever the mission, there are PLENTY of different ways to assassinate, which means each of the six missions will have a huge amount of different ways to do your job.
Hitman III is available right now for the PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, Switch and Stadia.

DEAL OF THE WEEK
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint
Set in the fictional island of Auroa in the Pacific Ocean, you play a special forces operative who is sent in to investigate a series of disturbances on the island, and uncover a local military contractor has been causing some trouble.
Okay, cards on the table, Ghost Recon Breakpoint is FAR from the best Tom Clancy game in the market, but considering just how big a drop in the price this has, it is about as much money you'd likely find down the back of your couch!
Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon Breakpoint is available on the PS Store right now, marked down from €69.99 to just €9.09.
