A little sports, a little spankin'. Sounds like a good week so far.

Welcome to Shipping Out, our weekly notice of all them thar games that ship from publishers to retailers in preparation for their street date a day later. In many cases, these games won't be on store shelves until tomorrow, but in the interest of getting the word out, letting the PR departments have their fancy quotes and saving us sanity as the weekly releases pile up, we're going to be consolidating everything down into one handy little news story at the end of the day, along with this description. Neat, eh? And lazy!

It's the TPS way.

[PlayStation 2]

We may well be seeing the final days when the PS2 can be included in this list, but not this week!

[NCAA Football 11]
EA Sports' college pigskin outing must be. This is the law of the universe, for when there is no yearly college football game, there can be only death and destruction. The unliving will shamble across the bloodstained rubble that used to be civilization seeking only to devour the flesh of those still alive. Or, maybe it's more like our good buddy Peetah Moore says.

"NCAA Football 11 represents the greatest transformation in the history of the award-winning franchise, Moore said from his throne of power as EA Sports' President. "With the TruSchool system, weve replicated the authenticity of college football, from team-specific entrances to offensive styles, like never before. The start of the college football season kicks off today."

So there you have it. A new marketing-friendly term in this year's entry saves us all from the apocalypse... or does it? Dum dum duhduhduh dummmmm...

[PlayStation Portable]

Not quite as dead as the PS2, nevertheless, the PSP isn't actually awash in games right now. Updates when they come in.

[PlayStation 3]

[NCAA Football 11]
Yep, same as that PS2 version. Saving the world 'n all that.

[Little League World Series Baseball 2010]
No, this isn't a joke, and yes, they really did make a Little League game. And it's numbered. As in yearly. As it'll probably be the first of many. What, you still think we made this one up? Fine, check this shiz out:

"Little League World Series Baseball 2010 is an outstanding choice for households with baseball and videogame fans," pleads David Oxford of Activision Publishing. "The accessible controls, safe content and $39.99 price make it the most family friendly console game of the summer."

So, uh, there ya go.

[PlayStation Network]

From the mind of Ron Gilbert, co-creator of the Monkey Island series and Hothead games the folks behind the ill-fated Penny Arcade adventure games (among plenty of others), comes a lootwhoring game with a sense of humor -- something seriously missing from the genre dominated by mega-demons and rare drops. It's filled with... well, here, we'll just let them do this part:

"While DeathSpank is definitely one of the funnier games out there, its more than a one trick pony," explains Vlad Ceraldi, Hothead's Director of Game Development. "Weve built a game with fast-paced, addictive combat set in a world that has a tremendous amount of depth that is filled with dynamic characters, colorful environments and tons of cool weapons and loot. And yes, we still have ponies too -- trick ponies!"
"The team at Hothead has really made the perfect experience for the summer," gushes EA Partners' Outreach Director of BizDev, Jamil Moledina. "DeathSpank is a high-end and fun game, yet incredibly accessible. Its very easy to pick up and play, both in terms of its classic arcade controls, as well as the convenience of downloading it straight to your console."
Well, we're sold. Look for a review soon!
