No Man’s Sky
Exploring new and unfamiliar lands is one of the greatest aspects of video games. Experiencing fresh and interesting locations and uncovering ancient secrets is an addictive gameplay mechanic that many successful games have implemented. No Man’s Sky takes this idea and applies it to over eight quintillion planets.
If you have your finger on the pulse of the gaming community, you have heard of No Man’s Sky. If not, it is a game about exploring numerous galaxies on your quest to discover what secrets lay at the centre of the universe. On your way, you will land on, explore, and document many different planets.
Ozgameshop is currently selling No Man’s Sky for $44.09, which is a saving of $18.90.

The original Titanfall was an excellent game. Unfortunately for PlayStation 4 owners, it was an Xbox One exclusive. Now, with console exclusivity becoming less prevalent, PS4 owners can experience the latest entry in the Titanfall franchise.
Titanfall 2 evolves and fine-tunes the addictive gameplay established in the original Titanfall. Players will experience a first-person shooter that provides a greater freedom of movement, and the ability to pilot gigantic robots. These two different styles of gameplay lead to exciting and fluid battles where players need to adapt depending on the situation.
Target is currently selling Titanfall 2 for $39.00.

Seagate Game Drive for Xbox 2TB
I have found that one of the biggest problems with the latest generation of gaming is that games have a large install size and need to be updated regularly. This means that early adopters who bought consoles when hard drive sizes were smaller need to constantly delete games in order to play new ones.
Thankfully, the crew over at Seagate heard all of your complaints and has developed a 2TB external hard drive made specifically for consoles. Gone are the days of having to delete games on your console. Unless you only buy Battlefield games.
Ozgameshop is currently selling the Seagate Game Drive for Xbox for $187.99, which is a saving of $72.00.

Killer Instinct made an unexpected appearance on the Xbox One. Gamers finally got the sequel to an extremely tight and technical fighting game. Killer Instinct: Definitive Edition comes will every piece of content the games have to offer. So, if you are looking for, and pardon the pun, the definitive Killer Instinct experience, then look nowhere else.

Decay: The Mare
Institutions are pretty scary places. Their empty, white hallways that lead into rooms that house patients experiencing psychological and physical strain, can put scare any visitor, let alone someone who has been admitted.
Decay: The Mare knows that people fear institutions, and decided it would be a good idea to set a horror game inside of one. Taking inspiration from games such as Silent Hill and Phantasmagoria, Decay: The Mare provides players with a scary game with old-school sensibilities.
Steam is currently selling Decay: The Mare for $1.33, which is a saving of $12.08.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt GOTY Edition
With each new gaming generation or technical advancement, open world RPGs have been growing in size and scope. What once featured largely unpopulated areas, now hold gigantic city’s populated by a wide range of characters, and dangers.
The Witcher 3 is the shining example of an RPG that takes advantage of the technology available and pushes the conceptions of what a game can be. Featuring a large, detailed landscape full of quests, side-quest, towns, cities, people and monster, The Witcher 3 is a game that you could play for hundreds of hours. And, people have.
Amazon is currently selling The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt GOTY Edition for $40.26, which is a saving of $26.85.
These are the week’s best Nintendo deals.
Instead of creating graphical powerhouses that try to revolutionise the gaming landscape, some developers decide to take a trip back in time and make a retro and nostalgic experience.
Shovel Knight is one of those games. You play as a knight who defeat foes with his trusty shovel. Focusing on tight controls, addictive gameplay, and featuring a 16-bit graphical presentation, Shovel Knight offers a current gen interpretation on a retro-style game.
JB Hi-Fi is currently selling Shovel Knight for $24.00.
Shovel Knight was one of finder's favourite games of 2015.
