AU Shippin' Out May 27-31: Fuse

Take on the role of a special task force member in cover-based shooter Fuse this week.

Insomniac Games' team-based third-person shooter Fuse blasts its way onto Australian shelves this week.

The game was originally known as OverStrike when it was announced at the 2011 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), but was subsequently renamed Fuse to tie in with story elements.

In Fuse, players can control one of four members in a special task force called in to combat a rogue paramilitary organisation. The United States government has been experimenting with a secret alien substance called fuse, wherein combined earthly materials are used to create destructive weaponry.

Insomniac Games confirmed that the game will not require an online pass, and will not integrate microtransactions.

After four years in the garage, Grid 2 is being taken out for a spin. The racing game is scheduled for release on 360, PS3, and PC on May 30.

Developed by Codemasters Racing Studios, Grid 2 will introduce a new handling system intended to cater to both new players and veterans. Players will be able to drive on courses based throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. In addition to the single-player career mode, drivers will be able to race head to head in split-screen mode, or online via publisher RaceNet's portal.

For more details on the games coming out this week, check out the full list below.

It's looking like Fuse won't do very well, which is a shame because it looks like a pretty fun game.

If any Aussies wish to join me in a bit of Fuse fun send me a message.  I'm playing it on PS3


I'm really keen to get Fuse, but I don't know if I can this week. Hopefully in the next 2-3 weeks, I'll get it. I really liked the demo, and I like what Insomniac does. I hope the game sells buttloads too; I definitely want to see more Insomniac multi-platform lovin'.
