Big W Has Some Decent Father’s Day Sales

It’s not quite Father’s Day yet, but retailers take advantage of the opportunity early by discounting a bunch of stuff. Like video games.

This post has been updated since its original publication, with some new deals added.

The deals are available in store and through the Big W website, but if you want to browse directly here’s the Nintendo Switch, PS4 and Xbox One landing pages.

Below I’ve listed the best picks of the bunch. There’s some fun games at low enough prices: Burnout is a blast, and I know quite a few who would be happy to pull the trigger on Ashes Cricket for that amount. FFXV with all the DLC isn’t bad for $39, either.

Poor Andromeda. Worth noting that FIFA 18 is an absolute steal since you get the World Cup mode as a free update. There’s always the chance that more games will get added to the list as we get closer to September 2 (because some of you will have forgotten the date, naturally), and I’ll update this post if they do.


  • Poor Andromeda. —

    I don’t look at it that way, i see it as all the people who bought into the unfair reviews of the game would be willing to give the game a chance at that price!

    Realize that its actually a game with a lot of potential and have more people asking for a sequel

    • I played Andromeda after they fixed all the weird animations and shit. It was really good. Not as good as ME 2 or 3, but still good. Absolutely worth $15 in my opinion. I think I paid around $28.

      • I’ve actually been thinking of playing it solely because it’s so cheap, but the fact you say it wasn’t as good as ME3 puts me off. I really didn’t feel the love for that game. Even in the first few hours of playing it. As soon as Edi got a sexy robot body I was just like ‘wtf?’

        Plus I haven’t finished Horizon Zero Dawn, haven’t come close to even exploring Zelda, picked up the last Assassin’s Creed for $20 on special and have only installed… you get the picture. I got games. I got soooo many games.

        But I still might give it a crack one day.

        • Ha ha, well, if you didn’t like ME3 I can’t really fault you. I liked it, but obviously a lot of people didn’t. I would say Andromeda is less of the ‘epic space opera’ than ME2 and ME3 but it does have its moments. Towards the end of the story missions there are some really awesome scenes and battles. And most awesome of all, is that after the story is finished you can go around and do side missions and explore parts of the galaxy you didn’t get around to during the story. I would actually recommend that because otherwise the story pacing suffers a bit. Do a few side missions along the way, but save some for later as well.

          Do play Horizon first though, it is better than Andromeda in my view. Aloy is my kind of gal!


          • Aloy is awesome. I’m a fair way in but it’s just so huge that i get sidetracked for months on end.

            But i always come back. Those machines designs are so cool!

          • Horizon had been one of my favourite games in a long time! Even better since its an entirely new and original IP, not some rehashed story and characters or reboot!

            I loved how engaging the story is and i wanted to know more about how it all went down. Probably one of the few times ive been interested in collecting lore related items in game, and it actually improving the story!

        • Eh, personally I’d rank them as ME>Andromeda>ME3>ME2. I know I’m very much in the minority there, but Andromeda was treated terribly, and I do think it deserves a second chance.

          If you like the idea of a soft reboot of ME with some major technical issues (even after the final patch on PC I had my game crash 7 or 8 times in one cutscene before I turned all the settings to minimum to get through said cutscene – there are still major issues with Andromeda on a technical level and the fact I liked it despite those issues does not mean you shouldn’t expect them) rather than a continuation of the direction it was headed in ME2 and ME3 you’ll probably like it, but if you want the driving narrative of 2 or spectacle of 3 you’ll probably be disappointed.

          • I’m actually pretty interested now I’ve seen your and Zambayoshi’s @zambayoshi comments and at this price I can’t see a down side.

            I just want to wait until my pile of shame gets under control. I never used to even have one but now it’s a real thing. Shame there’s still technical issues. Batman Arkham Knight was shocking when it came out but now it’s a really tight game. EA have the power to do the same if they wanted to. Crashing in cutscenes is REALLY not good.

      • I tried it about 6 months back but found it really generic. Unfortunately it just fed my confirmation bias about the game being bad.

        I honestly didn’t give it a fair go. When would you say the game picks up?

        • It does take a few hours to pick up. And yes, I agree that the intro was pretty bland. When you can start having fun with skill points and different weapon set-ups is cool, as is unlocking vaults (although the unlocking process can be a bit tedious).

  • For those who haven’t tried it, Shadow of War is amazing. Been playing it for two weeks solid already and can’t put it down.

    • I was a huge fan of the original, but couldn’t get into this one. Maybe after patching out all the microtransactions it’s become better, but it just felt like such a slog to get through when I played it, I became so bored with it I gave up well before the end.

  • Yeah, I started when the latest patch came out. No more micro$. I’m finding the story more epic and much more engaging, plus I love a good loot system. I feel like they could market it as a ‘Boogeyman for Orcs’ sim 🙂
