AU Shippin' Out July 17-20: Mario Party and Scarface

"Say hello to my little friend."


In-between slaying Bowser and rescuing Princess Peach, Mario somehow manages to organise and throw a party! Mario Party 8 is the first time the Mario Party franchise has appeared on the Wii, and it supports up to four players. It features over 70 minigames and adds in six new party boards for players to choose from. Mario Party 8 is coming out in Australia this Thursday.

After more than six months on the PC, PS2 and Xbox, Scarface: The World Is Yours is making its way onto the Wii. Parents beware, this game isn't for children--it places you in the shoes of drug lord Tony Montana, who must sell drugs, kill thugs, and attempt to rebuild his criminal empire. Scarface: The World Is Yours will be chainsawing its way into retail stores on the 19th.
