AU Shippin' Out August 2-6: Naval Assault: The Killing Tide

August starts off Down Under with a lull for video game releases.


With the Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty hangover in full swing, only two games were brave enough to take on the real-time strategy juggernaut for consumers' time and money this week. The first, Naval Assault: The Killing Tide, is exclusive to the Xbox 360 and lets players assume command of an American submarine during World War II. The second game, My First Trainz Set, aims to bring the locomotive simulation franchise to a younger audience and allows budding train drivers to make tracks around the house.

Early August is set to be a quiet period, with barely a trickle of games coming out, but things are expected to pick up around August 19 with the release of Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days and Dragon Quest IX: Sentinels of the Starry Skies.
