It's the calm before the storm this week, as Diablo 3 and Max Payne 3 lie patiently in wait while Starhawk and Minecraft have their day in the sun.
Starhawk is a Playstation 3 exclusive highly stylist space Western which incorporates 3rd person action with vehicles ranging from jetpacks to dune buggys, space craft and everything in between.
Starhawk will be releasing on Thursday 10th May for AUD$89.95 or NZD$109.95.
Also out this week is the incessantly indie Minecraft, finally releasing for the Xbox 360. The titular title epitomises the modern sandbox, allowing players free reign to build anything they can dream up from a series of low-fi squares using basic tools which are crafted into more complex ones.
This game-cum-institution will be downloadable on Xbox Live Arcade, also on Thursday, for 1600 Microsoft Points.
