Limber Up for Decathlon 2012 on 26th July

In time for the opening ceremony

Cinemax is ready to wrap up its sporting summer with Decathlon 2012 in Europe and North America on 26th July, the day before the London 2012 Olympic Games' opening ceremony.

The DSiWare download mimics the official decathlon events — that's 100 metres, long jump, shot put, high jump, 400 metres, 110 metre hurdles, discus throw, pole vault, javelin throw and 1500 metres, of course. The game uses the official score-calculating system too, so you'll be able to see if you can beat Ashton Eaton's world record of 9,039 points, though it probably won't count as as a world record you're only using your thumbs.

Cinemax also announced that Commando: Steel Disaster will reach North America on 9th August.

I gotta admit purely from the video that looks quite fun, & being able to beat the real world record holder by just using my thumbs? Hells yes!

If it plays the same way Atari 2600's Dechatlon used to, it will break your DS and give you a repetitive strain injury.

1500 meter run? About flipping time. Was really hoping it would be $2, not $5. It looks like an NES game though. Ugh. Why can't a track and field game have the distance events? WHY?!?!?!
