ACTIVE LIFE: Extreme Challenge is the follow up to the successful Active Life: Outdoor Challenge game/mat bundle. Leveraging the ‘active gaming’ trend, Active Life games use a mat controller along with the Wii Remote to incorporate the player’s entire body into the gameplay.
ACTIVE LIFE: Extreme Challenge kicks ACTIVE LIFE into high gear, featuring ‘extreme’ themed sports such as base jumping, street luge, and rock climbing. Whether you want to swoosh down the hills of San Francisco in a street luge, scale the cliffs of the Grand Canyon, or kite-surf in the crystal blue waters of the Pacific, this game will get your [...]
Sinobi posted a list of the top ten third-party games on the Wii in Japan in terms of sales. At the top of the list, based on Enterbrain sales numbers acquired early by Sinobi, sits Capcom’s Monster Hunter 3, with 720,000 copies sold.
Despite the best-seller status, we doubt Capcom is pleased with these sales numbers. The publisher famously shipped one million copies of the game, which have yet to sell through. While sales of the hardware bundle have been good, the standalone version of the game sold only 40% of its stock in the first week, and is already being dropped in price in some stores by over half.
Nintendo has announced a Metroid giveaway via the European Club Nintendo.
The platform holder is giving away 5,000 downloads of the original Metroid on Virtual Console to gamers who pick up Metroid Prime Trilogy.
Nintendo: “To qualify for the promotion, players must be one of the first lucky 5000 who register their copy of Metroid Prime Trilogy on the European Club Nintendo website and who have previously registered one of the Metroid Prime games (Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, or Metroid Prime 3: Corruption).”
Metroid Prime Trilogy launches on September 4th.
This video was released TODAY (August 13th, 2009) by Ubisoft. In the video it states that something will become available on the website redsteel2.com on August 19th, 2009. It’s unclear if “Are You Ninja Enough” is an online game, new footage, etc…
I find it odd that they would be promoting the game so early, since it has been confirmed that it will be delayed until 2010 by Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot and reflected on Wikipedia and other release lists, I guess we’ll find out in 6 days…

In the above advert it appears to be Nintendo’s newest peripheral, a bicycle accessory for your Nintendo Wii. It is unclear if this any tie-in with Nintendo’s recent “horse riding” patent. What’s your take on this peripheral?
Capcom will be working with Nintendo for the overseas release of Monster Hunter 2, which hit Japan last week and sold over 500,000 units in its first two days. Nintendo will make use of its experience in selling Pokemon to promote the Capcom title.
In Japan, Capcom will be giving the Wii one of its biggest upcoming titles, the historical action slasher Sengoku Basara 3. This is the third numbered installment in the series that’s known as Devil Kings in the West. In Japan, the series is extremely popular, with Capcom frequently making note of the appeal the game has with female audiences.
Sengoku Basara 3 was announced a couple of weeks back, but without [...]
Above: Matt Ryan shooting the crap out of that bullseye
Matt Ryan, Senior Supervisor of Communications and Advertising for Nintendo of Canada, not surprisingly happens to be a huge fan of the game and was happy to share his thoughts with TorontoThumbs.com. What is surprising, however, is that his sentiments for the archery game echo our own Adam Russell’s so much that it’s somewhat uncanny.
“Before I even got my hands on it, I honestly was the most interested in archery. I think it was because when it was demonstrated to me for the first time, the whole action that you go through with archery is so real and close to what you actually do in archery — which is something [...]
