Budget Buster specials (Kalahari)

If you’re looking to pick up some cheap games, it’s the last week of Kalahari’s Budget Buster special.

Capcom’s crazy super-powered fighter Asura’s Wrath is going for R99.95, brought down from R285.95.

The underrated Wolfenstein reboot is also now R99.95, while the shamefully overlooked robot shooter, Binary Domain, is also slapped with a R99.95 price tag.

Singularity, NeverDead, No More Heroes 2 are just some of the other games on offer in the under R100 range.

There is a under R200 category, which also features some great games, such as Darksiders II (R199.95), Driver: San Fransisco (R159.95), and Ridge Racer: Unbounded (R199.95)
