1. GAME: Dust 514 (PS3)
If video games can be said to offer sweet escapism, there are few better free ways to get away from it all than by playing Dust 514. The space-set saga is a massive multiplayer first-person sci-fi shooter, free to play on PlayStation® 3. Developed by CCP Games – the company responsible for Eve Online – the graphics are beautifully rendered, with combat taking place on the same planets as Eve Online.
To begin your experience, you can either take your time to customise your infantry and vehicles before you start, or simply dive right in and fire away.
