Gamewatch: Thor God of Thunder, MotorStorm Apocalypse

Check out the latest PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and handheld video games shipping the week of May 2, 2011.

Uh-oh, another wannabe-blockbuster summer movie tie-in. It sounds like the international reviewers don't hate Marvel's new Kenneth Branagh-directed Thor movie, so mayhap there's hope for Sega's Thor: God of Thunder (Nintendo DS, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii). In it, you can expect to "control the powers of the storm" as Thor, battling the usual panoply of Norse bad guys Marvel comics-style (yea verily). There's also the Matt Fraction-helped-with-the-story angle, though everyone's favorite Eisner-winning comics writer is hardly impervious to dull writing. ETA: May 3rd

If you've been waiting to play Motorstorm: Apocalypse (PS3) with pals online, you may have to wait a smidge longer. Fourth in Sony's brawl-racing series, Apocalypse was originally due mid-April, but delayed due to the Japanese earthquake and tsunami. Alas, Evolution Studios' post-apocalyptic racer can't catch a break. ETA: May 3rd

The rest due this week, by platform.

PC: Avadon: The Black Fortress (online), Dead Meets Lead (online), FATE: The Cursed King, Section 8: Prejudice (online)

Xbox 360: Moon Diver (XBLA), The History Channel: Great Battle Medieval

Wii: Attack of the Movies 3D, Crazy Machines, Remington Super Slam Hunting Alaska

Nintendo DS: Anonymous Notes Chapter 2 - From the Abyss (DSiWare)
