AU Shippin' Out September 1-5: Spore

Create and evolve with Spore this week.

Ever since its announcement, Will Wright's ambitious title--Spore--has been on the minds of gamers and is now on the verge of release down under. Spore sees you create and guide your creatures through various stages of evolution. Anyone who has already created a creature using the Spore Creature Creator, which came out a few months ago, can import their animals straight into the game, as opposed to starting anew. Spore is officially out this Thursday for the PC and Nintendo DS.

Three weeks ahead of the movie's release, THQ is releasing the official movie tie-in for Wall-E. The game comes out on almost every platform currently available, each with its own unique features. The PS3 and 360 versions contain two-player co-op, the DS version utilises the touch screen, PC and PS2 allow you to use music to find solutions, and the Wii version supports three head-to-head multiplayer games. Wall-E comes out on September 4.

After several delays, Mercenaries 2 is finally coming out. Set in Venezuela, you control one of three mercenaries who has been screwed over the by the Venezuelan government on a dodgy job. After surviving the ill-fated mission, you build up a small band of support mercs and go about getting revenge on those who wronged you. Mercs 2 was partially developed by Pandemic's Brisbane studio and features over 100 weapons for you to deliver justice with. Like Wall-E, Mercenaries 2 is out on September 4.

I really can't wait for Spore , not even a week left ! Stalker looks great too, but I think I'll wait until I'm done the first one.

STALKER was delayed, wasn't it? They forgot to pack CD keys with the CD's and have to repackage it.

Some decent stuff coming on the 4th. STALKER and SPORE are the two primary ones IMO.

"SPORE" UK REVIEW BELOW i just read a uk review of spore and this is what they said: they said it is a great game and is very fun but it has no auto save feature which they found annoying and if you accidentally start a war with another racr then you cant get out of it and they will start attacking you. These are just minor flaws and im sure that patches will fix them in the future :)

Merc2 was suppose to release on Aug. 31, at least according to the pre-order box I got from Best Buy. I called them on Sept. 1 and asked if my copy had come in and they told me that Merc2 would not be out till Sept. 4.

Just beware that Spore's stupid DRM only allows 3 installs. After that you're screwed.
