BAFTA award-winner BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH gives an outstanding performance in the adrenalin-fuelled dramatic thriller, THE FIFTH ESTATE. This powerful exposé based on the real-life events of the notorious WikiLeaks.

Driven to expose corporate crimes and government secrets no matter what the cost, activist Julian Assange (Cumberbatch) and computer hacker Daniel Domscheit-Berg (Bruhl) team up to become the underground watchdogs of the privileged and powerful. As their Wikileaks organisation starts to gather support and influence across the globe so the stakes are raised; pitching them into conflict with the US intelligence agencies and putting the lives of thousands in danger.

The home entertainment release takes you further inside the conspiracies with the DVD featuring an additional featurette ‘The Submission Platform’ and the Blu-ray packed with even more behind-the-scenes action with ‘In-Camera Graphics’ and ‘Scoring Secrets’.

We have teamed up with Entertainment One to offer three lucky winners The Fifth Estate on Blu-ray.

Game of Thrones Season 3 was released today on Blu-ray and DVD, and we have a great competition to win a Games of Thrones Complete Season 3 DVD Boxset – and here are the winners.

UK_GOT_S3_SD_VIVA_PREM_3D_thumb2

In the third season of the hit HBO original series based on the bestselling book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. This epic drama is set in the grounded fantasy continent of Westeros, where ambitious men and women of both honor and ill-repute live in a land where summers and winters can last years. In Season 3, family and loyalty will be the overarching themes, and many critical plot points from the first two seasons will come to a violent head, with several major characters meeting cruel fates. While a primary focus continues to be on King’s Landing, where the Lannisters barely held onto power after a savage naval onslaught from Stannis Baratheon, stirrings in the North threaten to alter the overall balance of power in Westeros. Robb Stark, King of the North, will face a major calamity in his efforts to build on his victories over the Lannisters in Season 2, while further north, Mance Rayder (new character) and his huge army of wildlings begin an inexorable march south to scale the Wall. Across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen – reunited with her three deadly, fast-maturing dragons – attempts to raise an army of slaves to sail with her from Essos to Westeros, in hopes of eventually overthrowing the Iron Throne.

We’ve teamed up with Wargaming.net and World of Warplanes to give you the chance to get a Supermarine Type 224 and 300 gold for free.

300px-Supermarine_224

The Supermarine Type 224 was an inverted gull-wing monoplane fighter aircraft designed by R.J. Mitchell at Supermarine in response to Air Ministry Specification F.7/30, which sought a fighter for introduction to succeed the Gloster Gauntlet. It was powered by the Rolls-Royce Goshawk engine, which used an experimental evaporative cooling system, and problems with this combined with its disappointing performance led to it being rejected, a contract for production aircraft eventually going to the Gloster Gladiator. It is nevertheless notable because R.J. Mitchell learnt lessons from its failure that were to contribute greatly to his success with the Supermarine Spitfire.

Here you can watch the Type 224 in action:

Irritum, the first release from sole indie-developer, Nick Padgett is a 3D puzzle-platformer that focuses on the sensitive issues of depression and suicide, and we have 20 copies of the game to giveaway.

Screen_Shot_2013-05-21_at_12_45_43_PM

Irritum is a game revolving around the concepts of depression, and suicide. The player finds themselves in purgatory with no memory of their past life. Two mysterious beings, Cassus and Sollus, guide the player in their journey of discovery, and lead them either to retribution or oblivion. The only thing you know is to keep moving forwards, either collecting your memories in each level or ignoring them completely. Either discover the purpose of Irritum, or escape it.

The gameplay for Irritum is a 3d platformer with a puzzle-like twist. The player must use inter-dimensional planes to reach the end of each level, but they can only have one plane activated at a time. For example, the player can activate red platforms and interact with them as normal, but when blue is activated, the player will float through red platforms as if they did not exist. The player also has the ability to create a ghost of themselves that is immune to damage, and reverse gravity at their will to overcome difficult obstacles.

Irritum is available now for £7.49 for the PC, Mac and Linux.

Here is a trailer for Irritum:
