Become a galactic overlord with this week's biggest video game bargains.

Each week, finder searches for the best game deals across Australia. This week, we take a detour through outer space before dusting off the Xbox 360 and the Wii U for some last-gen bargains.

Give as good as you get with Humble

A new month means a new Humble Monthly bundle and this one's a doozy for those with an eye for conquering the galaxy. Space strategy game Stellaris leads this month's line-up, with US$12 (AUD$16.18) getting you a Steam key for the game straight away. Then, at the end of the month, you'll get a mystery bundle of games with a total value of more than US$100. Previous months' mystery bundles have always contained a good variety of genres, so you're likely to find something there to interest you.

Humble Very Positive bundle

Steam reviews aren't the best indicator of a game's quality (that's what we're here for), but they're usually pretty accurate when taken in aggregate. The Humble Very Positive bundle is proof of that. Inside you'll find a quirky grab-bag of games that have all achieved Very Positive ratings on Steam and there's some good stuff in there. Hacknet is especially brilliant, letting you live out your Hollywood hacker dreams without the risk of the federal police knocking on your door. Even better, it was made right here in Australia. Get on it!

Pay what you want for:

  • Super Mega Baseball: Extra Innings
  • The Deadly Tower of Monsters – Special Edition
  • They Bleed Pixels

Beat the average (currently US$6.38/AUD$8.60):

  • Hacknet
  • Crashlands
  • UnderRail

Pay US$10 (AUD$13.48) or more:

  • Stephen's Sausage Roll
  • Curious Expedition

Mei this deal be at your Mercy

I don't know if you've heard, but Overwatch is pretty popular. If you've been on the fence about trying it for yourself, JB Hi-Fi is currently selling the Origins Edition, which comes with five extra character skins, for $59 on PC and $69 on PS4/Xbox One. Considering how rarely the game goes on sale, it's a decent deal for one of the biggest games in recent history.

A deal with Death

Following the recent leak and subsequent announcement of Darksiders 3, Microsoft is selling the remastered versions of the first two games in the series together for $26.23, 50% off its regular price. Dubbed Darksiders Fury's Collection – War and Death, the bundle gets you two of the best not-Zelda Zelda games ever made, plus you'll be up-to-speed with Darksiders lore for when the third game comes out.

Doughnut miss this deal

Ripping a burnout along the Great Ocean Road wouldn't be cheap. Between a new set of tyres and a ticket for reckless driving, you'd probably be looking at a few hundred bucks, minimum. Thankfully, if you head over to The Game Collection, you can pull all the doughies you want in Forza Horizon 3 on Xbox One for just $53.62 delivered. And if you need more convincing, go give our review a read. It's a bloody ripper.

A reason to Switch

What's that? You've got a shiny new Nintendo Switch and you're looking for cheap games to play? Well, you've come to the right place. Lego City Undercover, AKA the best Lego game that nobody's played, is just $54.99 with free shipping over at Ozgameshop. If you've ever wanted a less-violent but still explosion-packed GTA, you owe it to yourself to check out Lego City Undercover, especially at this price.

'Shrooms and booms

After a brief hiatus, Beat the Bomb is back with its arsenal of time-limited deals. Of note this week is Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker for Wii U, on sale for $28.37 delivered. If you're one of the few Wii U owners who didn't trade your console in for a Switch, Captain Toad is a charming puzzle platformer well worth the price at less than $30.

Fright night

It's been out for a few months now, but Resident Evil 7 hasn't really seen any massive discounts, or, frankly, many sales at all. The Gamesmen has decided to change that, dropping the price on PS4 and Xbox One copies of the game to $54.95 plus $6.95 postage. In our review, we deemed Resident Evil 7 the best in the series since Resident Evil 4 and if you're in the mood to scare yourself stupid, you won't be disappointed.
