These bargains are hotter than a shirtless Mario.

Each week, finder searches for the best game deals in Australia. This week, don your detective hat, strap on your football cleats and prepare to get muddy with a landslide of dirt-cheap bargains.

PS4

Super. Hot. Super. Hot. No, I'm not talking about Mario's latest outing, even though it certainly cranked up our temperatures. I'm talking about Superhot, the time-bending shooter that also happens to be one of the best VR games available, period. If you've got yourself a PSVR headset, you'll want to throw down the $17.95 for Superhot VR at the PlayStation Store this week. Trust me, it's a trip worth twisting your head around.

No PSVR? No worries. You can jump into the sports season early with NBA 2K18 for $73 delivered and FIFA 18 Ronaldo Edition for $87 delivered at Mighty Ape. The Ronaldo Edition of FIFA 18 gets you access to the game three days early, giving you a chance to stretch your legs on the field before the rest of the competition arrives.

FIFA 18 Ronaldo Edition Mighty Ape $86.99 delivered

Xbox One

Forget GTA. The best game to come out of Rockstar Studios was clearly the Aussie-developed L.A. Noire. With its creepily-realistic facial animations and novel interrogation mechanics, it deserves a sequel as much as Red Dead Redemption does, and while that's probably never going to happen, at least Rockstar is giving the game a second chance with a remaster for current-generation consoles. If you missed out on the original version back on Xbox 360 and PS3, you can rectify that mistake by pre-ordering the re-release of L.A. Noire from British retailer Base for $44 this week. Heck, if enough people do just that, then maybe Rockstar will greenlight L.A. Noire 2. Maybe. Probably not. But I can dream, can't I?

Title Retailer Discounted price
Battlefield Bundle (Battlefield 4 + Battlefield Hardline) Microsoft Store $13.18

NBA 2K18 Mighty Ape $72.99 delivered
FIFA 18 Ronaldo Edition Mighty Ape $86.99 delivered

Nintendo Switch

The Switch might be selling gangbusters all across the planet, but it's sadly lacking on the bargain front. Nevertheless, if you're eager for a new game to tide you over while you wait for Super Mario Odyssey, picking up the Definitive Edition of Rayman Legends for $38.44 from British retailer Base is a solid move. Rayman's return to 2D platforming gives the ol' moustachioed plumber a run for his money, plus, Legends boasts a level based on the song Black Betty. Can Mario say the same?

PC

Humble Bundle's end of summer sale draws to a close this week, so you'll want to click fast to snap up the hundreds of bargains currently available. My personal recommendations? At less than $5, Spintires offers a driving experience unlike any other, tasking you with ploughing through fields of mud and dirt in massive trucks prone to getting bogged at the drop of a hat. It's surprisingly satisfying to plunge into giant mud pits and winch your way out of trouble, and it highlights just how arcadey most racing games – even those that claim to be sims – really are.

Check out this week's PC deals below:

Title Retailer Discounted price
Dropsy Humble Bundle $3.13
Lara Croft GO Green Man Gaming $3.43
Spintires Humble Bundle $4.52
Rise of Nations: Extended Edition Microsoft Store $7.48
Metro Redux Bundle Humble Bundle $9.42
Stellaris Green Man Gaming $18.14
Shadow Warrior 2 Humble Bundle $25.14
