Knock your block off | Ozgameshop
With its second season in full swing, Minecraft Story Mode has shown that the blocky powerhouse that is Minecraft isn't just about cutting down trees and building colossal castles. Telltale's narrative chops lend themselves well to the world of creepers and redstone, and you can catch up on the first season on Xbox One for under $18 this week at Ozgameshop.

Game over, man | Humble Bundle
Licensed games are frequently terrible, or at best mediocre, but Alien: Isolation defiantly bucks that trend. The sci-fi horror game is gloriously tense, with its dark, derelict environments packed with tiny details that show off developer Creative Assembly's reverence for the Alien universe. For less than $10 in a bundle with other spine-shiverers like Layers of Fear and Five Nights at Freddy's, you won't find many better, or spookier, deals this week.

Nate 2.0 | Big W
Forget Nathan Drake; Chloe Frazer is the roguish treasure-hunter Uncharted needs to hang with from here on out. Uncharted: The Lost Legacy proved that Frazer is every bit as compelling as ol' Drake, plus she knows when to call it a day instead of outstaying her welcome. And for just $42 at Big W this week, you can join Frazer as she adventures through India in The Lost Legacy on PS4.
|Mass Effect: Andromeda||PS4/Xbox One||$29.00|

Fenix rising | Base
With Crackdown 3 booted back to 2018, Xbox One owners looking for big-name exclusives have a chance to catch up on titles they might have missed from the last year. Gears of War 4, for example, is a cracking continuation of the beefy shooter series, and you can snap up a copy for less than $26 delivered from UK retailer Base this week. Go on, scratch another grub.

|Dragon Quest Heroes II||PS4||$31.84 delivered|
Hella cool | Green Man Gaming
Life is Strange, without question one of my top games of all time, is returning with the prequel tale Life is Strange: Before the Storm this week. Excitement! If you're as keen as me to jump back into the world of Arcadia Bay, Green Man Gaming is offering 25% off pre-orders for the game, dropping the Aussie price down to just under $19. That's hella cool.
|Civilisation: Beyond Earth||PC||$13.64|
|Life is Strange: Before the Storm (pre-order for 31 August)||PC||$18.90|
Praise the Son-y | PlayStation Store

Dark Souls III will gladly kill you again and again and again, and all for the measly sum of $24.95 at PlayStation Store this week. Prepare to buy?
