AU Shippin' Out Jan. 11-15: Army of Two: The 40th Day

EA heralds in the new year with fist-bumps and firearms.

by

The virtual mercenary business is booming, and the latest game to revolve around a private military company--Army of Two: The 40th Day--is just about ready to accept contracts. The bromance continues as Salem and Rios head to Shanghai only to find themselves amidst an invasion. Thankfully, the two guns for hire have some new moves up their sleeves to fight their way out of the crumbling city, which might help players handle the new moral choices that they'll face. Army of Two: The 40th Day is due out around Australia this Thursday.

With the Vancouver Winter Olympics just over a month away, Sega is launching its licensed game just ahead of the massive sporting event. Similar to Sega's other licensed Olympic titles, Vancouver 2010 - The Official Video Game of the Olympic Winter Games is a compilation of minigames based on real-world Olympic events, like two-man bobsleigh and snowboard cross. If you're after an escape from the Australian summer, then you can play Vancouver 2010 when it's released later this week on the PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360.

@Mattyrock Dude you've got to play the first one ... although I'll tell you that it no bearing on The 40th Day, so I guess it doesn't really matter which order you decide to play them in! ;)

Does it cost less just to import games to Australia than to just buy it in stores? I meet an Australian exchange student and he was loading up on games and bought $400 worth of games for the PS3 and Xbox 360 (and a 360 system too) to take back home. Seems crazy that shipping is so high. In the US we can get items shipped from Hong Kong, China, Philippines, Taiwan and Japan for rather inexpensive prices. Whats stopping people from importing and getting the game sooner and maybe cheaper or at least for the same price; or rather preventing people to do mass pirating like in Brazil as well?

Too small this week. AOT: The 40th Day looks good but I never played the first one though.
