AU Shippin' Out March 15-19: God of War III

The conclusion of Santa Monica Studio's epic hack-and-slash trilogy arrives in Australia unedited.

The bloody tale of revenge by Kratos against Zeus and Olympus comes to an end this week with the release of God of War III. Players can expect over-the-top set pieces as they make their way across ancient Greece decapitating enemies and leaving entrails in their wake. Unfortunately for those keen on playing the first two games in the franchise as part of the God of War Collection, disappointment abounds with news that it will only be available as part of the ultimate edition available exclusively at EB Games Australia; all copies of which have sold out. There's been no word from Sony Computer Entertainment Australia about a stand-alone version of the GoW Collection so far. Keep your eyes peeled for God of War III on the PlayStation 3 when it arrives on store shelves this Thursday.

THQ's Metro 2033, the latest game in a long list of titles to take place in a postapocalyptic future, also smashes its way to retail this week. The game is based on the work of Russian author Dmitry A. Glukhovsky, who penned the book of the same name. The majority of the game is spent in underground subway tunnels going from station to station, but players will also find themselves trawling the surface for short periods of time, with expeditions limited to the amount of air their gas masks holds as you explore the toxic atmosphere above ground. Metro 2033 is out Thursday on the Xbox 360 and PC.

The 2010 Rugby League season is just beginning, but already there's a brand new tie-in game for the sport. Rugby League 3 boasts more than 80 licensed teams from various leagues including the NRL, and features customised players and teams, as well as a multiyear Franchise mode. If footy is your thing, you'll be able to pick up a copy and run it to the try line this Thursday.

I'll be very interested to see gamer's first impressions of C&C4 and EA's new DRM.
