This time last year we only had Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Mario Kart Wii to fend off the baby sims and Mega Party Game Blasts. Nintendo was tight-lipped about E3 and the third party offerings were slim as usual – in other words, there was no respite from the casual flood in sight.
So, today is the day when George Bush finally - finally - exits the White House. His eight year stint in the presidential hot seat will be remembered for many things. Most of them bad and with terrifyingly global ramifications. But GamesRadar isn't the place to pick apart George W Bush's political legacy. No. That's what the rest of the internets is for.
Instead, we mark the historic momentousness of today by cooking up some
By now you’re probably aware of all the top-tier games coming out in the first three months of 2009, but isn’t there a little part of you that wants to know what the devs are working on next? We sure as hell do, and have already made up our minds about what should be unveiled before the year is out – most of them games we already suspect are on their way but have so far remained hidden.
You can do anything in LBP which is a pretty daunting prospect. Trying to compete or stand out in the canvas crowd might seem impossible but there are a few simple rules you can follow to increase the chances of your work getting noticed, played and hearted. This isn't a creation guide - the in-game tutorials do a good job of explaining how everything works. Instead, these are a few vital guidelines to make sure you build smarter and better
If you're like us, then you yell at your games all the time. "I made that jump!" "What utter crap!" "F@$% you, God!" All standard phrases born from the frustration of playing a game, a frustration that's impotent; the game doesn't care how you feel. However, we finally found a game in which crying and complaining affects the world around you: the upcoming DS RPG My World, My Way.
MadWorld is different. It's one of the very rare super-violent, M-rated Wii games, meaning it’s not made for children or the elderly. And it's an original property on a system known for dumbed down ports and repackagings. We recently spent some time with a near-final version and we're feeling confident it will stand out from the pack, and not just because it will be the only one dripping with blood.
The game industry might have slowed things down during these dark early days of 2009, but never fear – TalkRadar continues to lumber ahead at its usual drunken pace. This week, we’ve managed to enrage the internet twice, and we discuss the drama along with our latest coverage of Killzone 2, this week’s Top 7 and one of the few good games to actually release this month.
There are two editorial gold mines in the videogame-list business. The first is box art, because laughing at other people’s hard work gone awry is fantastically easy. Right behind those myriad articles about game packaging are lists devoted to poking fun at their very names – and we’re not afraid to go back to the well for another bit of fun.
Are you rich? For the low cost of roughly $5000, you can either purchase one segway (you tool) or the following 100 games that the GamesRadar staff is looking forward to most this year. Yeah, we know everyone’s got a list of games they want to see this year. But no one’s written about 100 of them!
Perhaps no other entertainment industry contains venomous fans arguing over the content of multiple versions of a solitary product. And for good reason - games are made to be ported over to multiple consoles in order to recoup staggering losses of cash. Each console has its own strengths and its own failings. That’s why we see a frame rate glitch here or a severely neutered feature there.
