Asia Shippin' Out Oct 30-Nov 5: Uncharted 3, LOTR: War in the North

Treasure hunting, north warring, and star exploring are the main agendas of this week's releases.

If gamers thought there would be a cooling-off period between big release weeks, they were wrong. The week of October 30 is anything but empty, with Naughty Dog's anticipated sequel Uncharted 3 helming the onslaught.

The game puts main character Nathan Drake in another treasure-hunting odyssey spanning across the globe. The third title was praised recently for its combat, level design, and story pacing, alongside its plethora of multiplayer options. For more information, check out GameSpot's review. Gamers in Asia can expect to play this PS3-exclusive title tomorrow.

Next up is The Lord of the Rings: War in the North from Snowblind Studios. The action role-playing game focuses on different combat scenarios and side stories told within the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Players will be using different classes of characters and fighting off a range of LOTR enemies and fauna. The title will be out this Friday for Asia.

Finally, old- and new-school Sonic fans can check out Sonic Generations for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. The title brings in old and recent levels from Sonic the Hedgehog titles, like the Green Hill zone, the Sky Sanctuary zone, and the Rooftop Run stage. Sonic Generations will be speeding down towards retail shelves tomorrow.

I wonder if the release dates r same for India... PLZ GameSpot PLZ put a little focus here too there are very hardcore gamers who have to order their games from other countries and not get the game at same date. We still dont have MW2 and Black Ops for Pc nor do we have Battlefield 3 on any platform!

Uncharted 3 looks great of course (I'll be getting it on Friday), but I'm curious to see how LOTR will turn out.
