by Oliver BrandtDecember 28, 2018

We weren’t expecting this, a third week of festive sales! Once again we think you can safely forget about most of the new releases for now and focus on what’s on discount – because there’s some good stuff there. There are also games that have abhorrent pricing which have come down to “well that might be alright then”.

Highlights include Dead Cells (only on sale for two days!), FIFA 19, Oxenfree, Grim Fandango, Sonic Mania, Valkyria Chronicles 4 and well, there’s 90 more games there – just take a look.

So what are you picking up this week?

Sometimes a game may be listed for the 19th for example, but not arrive on the Australian eShop until very late in the day or the next day due to our affiliation with the European eShop system. Titles available will change and update during the week, we’ll do a major update to the article on Thursday night/Friday morning which traditionally is the ‘usual’ update time.
