Punch your way through this week’s new releases


It’s time to put down those fruity-colored controllers you’ve been fondling for years and start playing games the way humans were meant to play, by hitting things with their bare hands! Out this week are EA Sports Active and Punch-Out, both for the Wii and both featuring coverart that’s about to smack you upside the head! If you need a little convincing that you’re actually fighting King Hippo in Punch-Out, Everlast has some excessive boxing gloves they’d like to sell you, but if you just can’t force your limbs to mimic the on-screen actions of your chosen warrior there’s always UFC Undisputed to play on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. So stop shooting stuff already and punch something this week!
