    Several things to note <b>El_Shaddai_Ascension_of_The_Metatron_JPN_XBOX360-Caravan</b> got released- it is something of a platforming/action game but it should be hitting the US at some point in the coming months so it gets sidelined for now. A video here <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3hOMDZawzU&feature=related" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n3hOMDZawzU...feature=related</a> and a bunch more are around as well.

    Also XBOX360_Triple_Pack_XBOX360-ZRY but that was mentioned in the p2p/internal release thread- <a href="http://gbatemp.net/t290296-triple-pack-multi-rf-xbox360-franco-int" target="_blank">http://gbatemp.net/t290296-triple-pack-mul...x360-franco-int</a>

    On top of that

    Appears to be region free.

    For those that missed it Marvel seem to being to make a triple feature thing out of their summer films with Thor being one of them. This is the tie in for it, the last few Marvel tie in games have not been good but some of their other recent games have been OK if not good so no idea where it sits. The last game from Liquid entertainment was Rise of the Argonauts back in 2008 which was not bad if a bit bland on the story and pacing side of things.

    Amazon US description

The power to shift the storm is in your hands and it is up to you to decide how to use it and whom to use it against. Enter a sprawling mythological world ruled by the elemental forces of fire and ice. Face unimaginable creatures, including frost giants, trolls and other unthinkable monsters. Become the legend. Become Thor.
