Asia Shippin' Out Dec. 11-17: GTA III, Gears of War 3: RAAM's Shadow

iOS version of classic sandbox title, new DLC for third Gears of War game, and stunt-performing racer are highlights for the week.

While this month has been moderate compared to November, new titles are still stockpiling local game shelves or, at least, on digital distribution sites like Xbox Live Arcade and the iTunes store. First up is the iOS version of Grand Theft Auto III. Subtitled as the "10 Year Anniversary" edition, the game now features touch-screen controls and revamped graphics resolution. For more information on the recent port, check out GameSpot's preview.

Next up is the first downloadable content for Gears of War 3, entitled RAAM's Shadow. The story-based DLC follows Zeta Squad as it evacuates people from Illima City in a campaign set before the original Gears of War story. In addition, the game will feature 250 achievement points to earn, as well as six new characters and a new weapons set for multiplayer. The pack will be out this Tuesday and set gamers 1,200 Microsoft points.

Finally, Joe Danger: Special Edition will be out for XBLA. This version of the former PlayStation Network action racing title now features a Laboratory mode where players must complete unique challenges created by the game's developers. This version also features new game modes and characters. Gamers can expect to pull off their own stunts in 2D digital form this Wednesday.

the Gears of War 3 DLC is actually the third DLC (second paid DLC) and should also be available with the season pass (2400 points). However, there's a problem with Season Pass players downloading the DLC right now. They are being redirected to the 1200 point DLC rather than the free version.
