Always bring a spare pair of pants | Ozgameshop
What better way to spend a night in than with the chainsaw-wielding, cockroach-eating Baker family? The creepy-as-heck antagonists of Resident Evil 7 Biohazard are sure to welcome you into their home with open arms swinging lead pipes, which is always a sign of good hospitality. Best of all, a stay at the Bakers' ramshackle Airbnb will only cost you $49 this week thanks to Ozgameshop. Surely you won't regret that decision?

|Resident Evil 7 Biohazard||PS4/Xbox One||$48.98 delivered|
Mechin' it happen | Origin
After recently adding Titanfall 2 and Battlefield 1 to its Netflix-like EA Access and Origin Access programs, Electronic Arts is discounting many of its Vault titles in its 'Player Appreciation Sale'. While the prices aren't as good as the $6.99 a month it'd cost you to sign up to Origin Access and play the games for free, there are still a few decent deals if you prefer buying your games outright instead of renting access to them.
The Origin Store's Player Appreciation sale ends on 25 August.
|The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt||$24.99|
|Mass Effect: Andromeda||$24.99|
|Battlefield 1 Premium Pass||$35.99|
New-gen is so last-gen | PlayStation Store
One of the benefits to sticking with last-generation consoles is how much cheaper the games are. Take this week's PS3 and Vita sale on PlayStation Store. The stylish cop drama Sleeping Dogs is just $7.55 on PS3, while the family-friendly adventuring of LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens is available on both PS3 and Vita for $12.95 and $14.95 respectively. If you've still got your PS3 hooked up, you can score a whole lot of game for very little money.
|Life is Strange Season Pass||PS3||$6.75|
|Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin||PS3||$12.95|
|Dragon Ball Xenoverse||PS3||$12.95|
|LEGO Marvel Super Heroes||PS3/Vita||$12.95/$14.95|
|LEGO Marvel's Avengers||PS3/Vita||$12.95/$14.95|
|LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens||PS3/Vita||$12.95/$14.95|
Stranger things | Microsoft Store
I'll never turn down a chance to plug Life is Strange, especially not when it's on sale for a measly $8 at Microsoft Store. Max's touching tale of broken friendships and irreversible tragedy is a poignant reminder that no matter how hard we try, we can never go home again. If you have any interest whatsoever in video games as a narrative medium, you owe it to yourself to check out Life is Strange, especially at this price.
|Life is Strange Complete Season||Xbox One||$8.09|
|King's Quest Season Pass||Xbox One||$19.68|
Bastion on the beach | Mighty Ape
More than a year on, Overwatch is still doing gangbusters for Blizzard. It's no surprise, then, that the game rarely goes on sale, so it's always worth highlighting the few occasions when it does drop in price. This week sees Mighty Ape selling the Xbox One version of the colourful shooter for a solid $49 delivered. If you're quick enough, you can even get in on the Overwatch Summer Games and start blasting fools decked out in an Aussie cricket uniform. Bonza!
|Sebastien Loeb Rally Evo||Xbox One||$22.99 delivered|
|Battlefield 1||Xbox One||$42.99 delivered|
|Overwatch Origins Edition||Xbox One||$48.99 delivered|
ICYMI | Green Man Gaming
Did you know you could own every Final Fantasy game from Final Fantasy III to Final Fantasy X-2 for just $97.82 right now? Simply head on over to Green Man Gaming's Final Fantasy Sale, and you could be bounding across the lands of Final Fantasy IV on the back of a Chocobo, soaring above the world of Gaia in Final Fantasy IX in your own airship and suplexing an honest-to-god train in Final Fantasy VI. No, that last one was true, trust me.
ICYMI Round 2 | PlayStation Store Games under $30
Sony threw a bunch of PS4 games on sale for less than $30 last week, and it's not too late to snap up a bargain. Whether it's the retro-futuristic warfare of Wolfenstein: The New Order for $7.55, or the majesty of Sleeping Dog's open-world Hong Kong for $13.95, there's no shortage of deals worth dropping your cash on.
