British bargains

We Aussies usually get the short end of the stick when it comes to currency exchange, but with the pound in its current state, the UK is proving to be a good place to scoop up a bargain. Over at Base this week, you can grab yourself the brutal third-person shooter Gears of War 4 for just $25.26 delivered on Xbox One. We had a lot of good things to say about Gears of War 4 in our review, calling it 'drop-dead gorgeous' and praising it for its friendliness to newcomers.

Just remember that, since Base is a British retailer, the Value Added Tax (VAT) will be removed after you enter an Australian address at checkout. That will bring the cost down to what we've listed below:

Gears of War 4Xbox One$25.26 delivered

The cheapest American vacation you'll ever have

Ever wanted to road trip across America? Forget the thousand-dollar airfares and the sleepless nights in shoddy motels; The Crew lets you burn rubber from New York to San Francisco without ever leaving the comfort of your house. For just $15.99 delivered at Mighty Ape, The Crew: Wild Run Edition will let you plough through the Florida Everglades in a Dodge Charger and bounce across the mountains of Arizona in a monster truck. That seems like a pretty good deal, don't you think?

A sequel to The Crew is expected to be revealed at Ubisoft's E3 conference. Bookmark our guide to E3 2017 where you'll find all of our coverage when the event kicks off.

Raiding tombs on a budget

Nathan Drake is cool and all, but Lara Croft is still the original tomb-plundering video game archaeologist. With her dry British wit and her preference for puzzle-solving over straight-up gunfights, Lara continues to distinguish herself from the Uncharted protagonist in her most recent adventure, Rise of the Tomb Raider. If you haven't had a chance to join Lara's latest treasure hunt yet, Dungeon Crawl has the Xbox One version down at a measly $15.00 + $2.50 postage.

An apocalypse in your own backyard

If you've ever wondered what Australia might look like if the whole world goes to hell, here's your chance. The harsh, hostile wasteland of Mad Max's post-apocalyptic Australia can be yours for just $19.45 on PS4 this week over at the PlayStation Store. With the ability to kit out Max's car with lethal spikes, flame-throwing exhaust vents, and electrically-charged harpoons, the game is a surprisingly slick open-world romp with more than enough bang for your 20 bucks.
