AU Shippin' Out October 25-October 26: Eye of Judgement, The Orange Box and SWAT

The Orange Box take two.

by

This week sees the release of Sony's computerised card game--The Eye of Judgment--for the PlayStation 3. The title uses the PlayStation Eye camera to read a cybercode located at the top of each card placed on the game-zone mat, which in turn brings the card to life onscreen. The first player to control five squares wins. The game's A$159.95 price tag includes a copy of the game, the PlayStation Eye camera, game mat, a starter deck comprising 30 cards, and a camera stand. Eye of Judgment will be available on October 25 Australia-wide.

Virtual cops rejoice, as SWAT: Target Liberty blasts its way onto the PlayStation Portable this week. Players take control of a five-man SWAT team as they tazer and pepper spray crims through 12 missions set in New York. The game includes support for up to four players to join forces and play co-op across 10 maps, or by using the map generator. SWAT: Target Liberty is released this Thursday.

Many gamers were disappointed by last week's sudden delay of The Orange Box (which includes Half-Life 2: Episode Two, Portal, and multiplayer game Team Fortress 2). Thankfully an Australian EA rep has confirmed that The Orange Box will indeed go on sale this week.

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

Orange Box is not that good. TF2 is rubbish multi-player, half-life is boring, in fact, the only good thing about it is portal.

I'm happy the orange box is confirmed this time around (then again, it was confirmed last time around) but why still no explanation for the sudden delay? And slp, you should slap that clerk cuz the majority of us had no idea until we walked in and asked for it. EA didn't even change the release date on their site for frig sake.
