Taking centre stage amongst Aussie game releases this week is Green Day: Rock Band from Harmonix and MTV Games. From five different albums, 47 Green Day tracks have made it into the game, although the majority of the songs are from the band’s second-most-recent album, American Idiot, and its first album, Dookie. There are three venues in the game, with each location symbolic of where the band was at the time. Green Day: Rock Band is available only as a stand-alone game and will be released on Thursday.
Torchlight caught many people off guard when it appeared on Steam late last year, and it has now earned itself a full retail release courtesy of publisher JoWood Entertainment. While the majority of the game remains identical, the retail release also includes a new in-game pet and editing tools so that players can create their own content. Torchlight will arrive in stores this Friday.
Keep an eye on AU Shippin' Out in the following weeks, as June still has some big titles in store, like Metal Gear Solid: Peace Walker, Lego Harry Potter, and more.
