REVIEWS Atelier Ayesha Plus: The Alchemi Review
Atelier Ayesha Plus is a new entry in a classic-JRPG series with a pretty paintjob, but does the classic formula still hold up?

I wish I could claim some mastery over this topsy-turvy classic starring elf boy who saves princess. Predictable, right?

Finally Broke My Crowdfunding Rule
By oblivion437
Posted on 01/12/15
I've had a long-standing rule to avoid getting involved in any sort of crowdfunded activities.  I didn't donate to Shadowrun or Wasteland, but I did buy and enjoy both of them (I'm plugging both of those games right now, just so you know they're good).  I haven't...

Monster Hunter 3G Sells Over Half a Million Already

Posted on Wednesday, December 14 @ 07:38:31 Eastern by Heath_Hindman

 
Media Create's sales results for the week of December 5-11 are in, and even though Monster Hunter 3G was released on the 10th, it claims the top spot, with over half a million freaking units sold.

"That's friggin' incredible," said...me a couple of minutes ago. The game's release also obiviously had something to do with the 350,000 3DS systems that were sold.  Here are the top 15:

1. (3DS) Monster Hunter 3G 
2. (3DS) Mario Kart 7 
3. (3DS) Super Mario 3D Land 
4. (PS3) The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 
5. (PS3) Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme Vs. 
6. (NDS) Magician's Quest: Oshare na Mahou Tsukai 
7. (PS3) Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi 
8. (WII) Kirby's Return to Dream Land 
9. (360) The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim 
10. (WII) Just Dance Wii 
11. (WII) Wii Party 
12. (WII) PokePark 2: Beyond the World 
13. (WII) Mario & Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games 
14. (PSP) Toaru Kagaku no Chou Denjihou 
15. (NDS) Metal Max 2: Reloaded 

Hardware went this way:
3DS - 350,321
PSP - 51,191
Wii - 46,018
PS3 - 44,661
DS (all non-3D versions) - 6,630
360 - 
3,211
PS2 - 
1,268
While Mario and Kirby are proving that some old franchises will always rank among the best sellers, Link is reminding us that all good things come to an end. Released on November 23rd in Japan, The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword has sold a tad under 250,000 copies to date. That's great, but to put it in perspective, Monster Hunter 3G, a handheld re-release of an older Wii game, took only two days to double that.
