Matt Sayer 13 June 2017 NEWS

Unleash your inner bargain hunter with deep discounts on Horizon: Zero Dawn, Titanfall 2, and more.

Each week, finder searches for the best game deals in Australia. This week, a public holiday and the kick-off of E3 2017 hasn't stopped the bargains from dropping as fast as the average temperature.

The Dark Knight rises again... again

Rumour has it The Dark Knight might be making a sneaky return at E3 this year. What better way to prepare than to revisit the games that put Batman back in gaming's good graces after decades of hokey movie tie-ins? As luck would have it, Ozgameshop is selling Batman: Return to Arkham for just $32 this week, scoring you both Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City on either PS4 or Xbox One. Sharpen those Batarangs and stock up on explosive gel, 'cause this Joker ain't joking around.

Plunge into the briny blue

Confession time: I'm not the biggest fan of the ocean. I know, I know, what kind of Aussie am I if I'm not chomping at the bit to head down to the beach and go for a swim? That aside, I do enjoy the occasional dip into the virtual ocean, making this week's Humble Bundle especially appealing. There's no pay-what-you-want tier for this one, but for a little over $13, you can grab the peaceful Journey-like ABZU, the jet-ski racer Riptide GP: Renegade, the post-apocalyptic explorer Submerged, and a whole lot more. Stuff my hydrophobia—I'm diving in.

Pay $10 USD ($13.28 AUD) or more

Robot dinosaurs are the best kind of dinosaurs

If you pick up one deal this week, you'll want to make it this one. Target has dropped the phenomenal Horizon: Zero Dawn down to a dirt-cheap $39.00 with click and collect, which is even more impressive considering the game's been $60+ everywhere up to this point. If Horizon's untimely launch alongside the equally stellar The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, now's the perfect time to get your robot dinosaur hunting on.

Dino deals redux

You've got to love price-matching. Following Target's lead, JB's dropped Horizon: Zero Dawn to $39 and one-upped the deal with its far cheaper $1.69 delivery fee. If you can't get to a physical Target or JB store, or you've got a JB Hi-Fi gift card you've been waiting to use, this is likely to be best price you're going to see on Horizon for some time.

It's Bruce Wayne's time to shine

If you're in the mood for a more pensive Batman adventure than The Dark Knight's brutal return to Arkham, British retailer Base.com is selling the narrative adventure Batman: The Telltale Series on PS4 for a mere $19.78 delivered this week. In it, you swap between both Bruce Wayne and the Bats, with the choices you make as one affecting the story for the other. Unfortunately, there's no option to get sloshed as Bruce and play a hungover Batman, which seems like a sorely missed opportunity in my book.

To Infinity and Beyond

In the world of PC gaming, EA's Origin service tends to get the cold shoulder from Steam users, but this week's Infinity Gaming sale could change that. Headlined by the wall-running, mech-piloting shooter Titanfall 2, I might just have to dust off my Origin account for these deals:
