This week’s best game deals: Forza fury and Mario madness

Matt Sayer 9 October 2017 NEWS


Burn rubber and capture Goombas with a fresh wave of hot deals.

Each week, finder searches for the best game deals in Australia. This week, race fans are in for a treat with not one but two Forza games on the cheap. There's plenty of off-the-track action, too, with sci-fi robot battles and a certain moustachioed former plumber bringing some tempting bargains.


There's no shortage of Dark Souls-inspired games these days, but too few seem willing to relinquish the fantasy setting of FromSoftware's games and try something new. Thankfully, The Surge bucks that trend, applying the brutally tough formula to the far reaches of the future. Killer robots, evil corporations and powerful exoskeletons provide a breath of fresh air to the Souls grind, and you can test your mettle against them all for a measly $25 this week from Ozgameshop.

If that doesn't grab you, then just check out the rest of this week's PS4 deals below:

Title Retailer Discounted price
The Surge Ozgameshop $24.98
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen Ozgameshop $31.98
Everybody's Golf Base $36.23
Knack 2 Base $37.92
Yakuza Kiwami Ozgameshop $39.98
Sniper Elite 4 Ozgameshop $41.98

Xbox One

It's Forza time for Xbox gamers this week, with both the recently released Forza Motorsport 7 and the more arcade-focused Forza Horizon 3 tempting race fans with doughnut-worthy discounts. Or if you'd rather spook yourself senseless, the gruesome Resident Evil 7 is down to a mere $30 delivered from British retailer Base.

Nintendo Switch

Look, let's not beat around the bush here. You bought your Switch for one game and one game only: Super Mario Odyssey. After all, how can anyone turn down the chance to gawk at the moustachioed ex-plumber's glorious beach bod? So with a chance to snap up a pre-order of the upcoming platformer for just $61 delivered from British retailer Base, how can you possibly say no?

Or if the recent story trailer for Star Wars Battlefront II has you itching to don your Imperial armour, you can lay down a discounted pre-order over at Green Man Gaming.
