Video game releases traditionally stop right before the Electronic Entertainment Expo, but that has changed in recent years, with this week continuing the trend of pre-E3 arrivals. Whilst the selection is small, the biggest game to make its way Down Under in the next five days is Hunted: The Demon's Forge from Bethesda Softworks. If you like fantasy games with a focus on co-op play, then you might want to check this one out. Depending on your preferences, you can choose to take on the role of a swordsman for some nitty-gritty melee fighting or take out enemies from afar as a ranged-weapons expert.
If you've got a hankering for some more Sims 3 action, then EA has you covered with the release of The Sims 3: Generations. This time around the focus is on expanding out activities for each age bracket, letting players be rebellious teenagers or live out their golden years as elderly citizens. It also adds in new items and schools.
Even with E3 under way next week, there are still games being released during the show, with the likes of Infamous 2, Red Faction: Armageddon, and Duke Nukem Forever all making their way to retail shelves.
