Updated Australian Release List - 12/09/05

PALGN Feature | Murder, monkeys and Mario this week.
Fahrenheit will finally find it's way to Australian shores this week, though this excellent murder mystery title is probably not alone in being worth a purchase. Newcomers to the Super Monkey Ball series should take a good, hard look at Super Monkey Ball DX, especially as it's packed with content from the previous games. And if you really must buy a Mario Party game this week, make sure it's Mario Party 6, rather than Mario Party Advance. Thanks.

There's been a few new dates mentioned this week as well. You may recall that a few days back Nintendo was unusually forthcoming with information on their Australian release schedule, with dates announced for Geist, Mario Superstar Baseball, Dancing Stage Mario Mix and Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance (all GameCube), along with release dates for two NES Classics on the GBA (Castlevania and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link respectively). The first concrete Aussie date has appeared for the promising Wild-West-me-do Gun (PlayStation 2/Xbox/GameCube/PSP/PC), while PC trio Quake 4, Civilisation 4 and The Movies were all dated this week as well. We can almost hear Santa preparing his sleigh from here.

i'd be interested to know ow much they are planning on releasing Neverwinter Nights Kingmaker (Add On Module) (DVD) for, since you can download it for $8US.

not as if it's a large DL either, 168MB.

It actually says on eagames.com.au that Burnout Legends comes out in 11 hours and 19 minutes. There's a countdown.
8 years ago
The definite buys based on this new list are:

PC

Fahrenheit
F.E.A.R Director's Cut (there has to be a DC release, there's a trailer out and everything...)

DS

Nintendogs (Labrador Retriever)
Lost in Blue
(Where the heck has Phoenix Wright disappeared to??)

GC
Battalion Wars

PS2
Burnout Revenge

Not sure which version to get yet
Ultimate Spiderman
James Bond 007: From Russia With Love (Probably Xbox)
SSX On Tour (Probably GC, play as snowboarding Mario! Too good to pass up?)

Damn, I was hoping after that eBay spree of mine, that I would be a bit more controlled in my spending habits... But those are all must owns for any self respecting gamer... damn.

i've "ordered" the director's cut from EB, but as yet they don't know if it's a release outside the US.

they're supposed to ring me as soon as they know either way, i'm not sure what i'll do if there is no DC in Au, i might import it, but i don't know, i'd rather be playing it on release rather than wait a week for it to arrive.

of course i could always DL the extras i'm sure.

I really want Mario Tennis Advance... argh... so many days...
Is this out in the US yet?

Starcraft Ghost!?

Theyve STILL got that on the table.Pfft....

You should just say for it release date that it will coincide with the release of Duke Nukem Forever.
8 years ago
it's funny, i've got a brochure for Starcraft: Ghost which has "Coming Soon to Next Gen Consoles", i think it came with Diablo 2.

Thats so sad...

Why dont they just can the whole ghost thing and just give the masses what they want.A NEW starcraft...

Yeah I've seen that. We've got a very recent list direct from EA saying it's coming on the 19 and most retailers list as 19 too.

I am either blind or Need for Speed: Most Wanted isn't included on the Ps2's release schedule anymore...

Not that it matters considering I'll be getting the Xbox version but it is interesting nonetheless.

Burnout Revenge on a monday? Odd day for a game release, thought it was always thursday.
