AU Shippin' Out July 17-20: Mario Party and Scarface

"Say hello to my little friend."

by

In-between slaying Bowser and rescuing Princess Peach, Mario somehow manages to organise and throw a party! Mario Party 8 is the first time the Mario Party franchise has appeared on the Wii, and it supports up to four players. It features over 70 minigames and adds in six new party boards for players to choose from. Mario Party 8 is coming out in Australia this Thursday.

After more than six months on the PC, PS2 and Xbox, Scarface: The World Is Yours is making its way onto the Wii. Parents beware, this game isn't for children--it places you in the shoes of drug lord Tony Montana, who must sell drugs, kill thugs, and attempt to rebuild his criminal empire. Scarface: The World Is Yours will be chainsawing its way into retail stores on the 19th.

This week's new releases are listed below (list taken from retailer and publisher information--actual dates may vary).

They recalled it in the UK, "Unfortunately we have discovered that a small number of games contain the wrong version of the disk due to an assembly error. We have therefore decided to recall all copies of the game from UK retailers so that this mistake can be corrected. "

No worries, if they'd gone that extra mile and re-worked it a little I might have picked it up myself, can only play Wii Sports and Zelda so long before boredom kicks in.
