The Weekend Spend – Riddick, new Assassin's Creed and a bargain Nokia Lumia 520

PlayPlax (£17)

Get creative with the 1960s construction toy. It's as simple as a very simple thing; just slot the plastic pieces together to create an infinite variety of objects (as long as they feature straight lines and squares). Give the plastic pieces to your kids to spark their imagination – or just make a retro desk toy. The choice is yours.

Riddick: The Extended Cut Blu-ray (£12)

Vin Diesel's sci-fi anti-hero returns, ditching the inflated budget and epic pomposity of the second Riddick film in favour of something that's tonally closer to his debut in Pitch Black. Yes, the budget limitations show – at times it looks like an episode of Stargate SG-1 – but Diesel's evident glee at getting to reprise his signature role shines through.

More after the break...

Assassin's Creed Liberation HD (£16)

This PlayStation Vita instalment in the Assassin's Creed franchise makes the jump from mobile to the big screen, putting you in the shoes of the series' first female protagonist, Aveline. You're tasked with sneaking about Louisiana and doing away with Spanish invaders – and with improved graphics, tweaked gameplay and additional missions, you really have no excuse not to pick it up.

Fun fact: the protagonist's name means "hazelnut." Not so threatening now, is she? (PC) (PS3) (Xbox 360)

Nokia Lumia 520 (£75)

Nokia's entry-level Windows Phone just got cheaper – Tesco's offering it for one of the cheapest prices we've seen. And with specs that are almost up there with the Lumia 720, it's bright, bold and a bargain.
