AU Shippin' Out February 15-19: Aliens vs. Predator

Despite a temporary ban, Sega's sci-fi shooter gets an Australian release in line with the rest of the world.

by

Sega is rebooting the Aliens vs. Predator franchise this week, after a less than smooth process of getting it through the Australian Classification Board. The game takes place from three perspectives--aliens, marines, and predators--as they battle it out on a planet believed to hold valuable technology to the Weyland-Yutani corporation. Developer Rebellion has also included some new multiplayer modes in this iteration, like a Gears of War 2-like Horde mode that sees four players face-off against waves of aliens. Aliens vs. Predator has been rated MA 15+ and will be released unedited around Australia on Thursday.

Other games out this week include the Sins of a Solar Empire Trinity combo pack (which includes the original game plus its two expansions), Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days, and Big Catch Bass Fishing 2. Stay tuned to AU Shippin' Out for the latest news in video game releases down under.

How's that for a bad bllody day. First you get introduced to aliens, then the alien predator, as if your plate wasn't already at full capacity. Where's Arnold when you need him?

It'll be intereting to read the first user reviews of AVP, after all the hype. If you're into 4X Strategy, then SoaSE Trinity is a good bet. Played the original plus the first EP for hours on end. Lots of great Mods available as well.
