Greetings! The time has come for your weekly dose of TalkRadar UK, so open wide your hungry ears. This week's team features Mr Cundy, Mr Towell and Mr Irvine - all of whom feel sufficiently qualified to talk things they have almost no information on. Like China.
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.
Metroid Prime 3: Corruption
It's back into the deepest pits of development for Metroid Prime 3. With the release date postponed indefinitely, Retro Studios have time on their side in the quest to perfect the first-person Metroid experience on Wii.
The last time we remember this happening was when the original Metroid Prime was met with disapproval from Nintendo's Japanese overlords. The result was a long delay, plenty of reworking and, ultimately, a game that many rate as the best thing on
Wow, has it been a year already? Yes, just 12 months ago we compiled a list of the most impressive DS games of 2008, to celebrate the games that pushed the envelope on the aging console.

Once again, we begin our yearly celebration of all things great in gaming, the Platinum Chalices. For
our sixth annual awards event, though, we’re doing things a little differently, posting the Chalices in three parts. So while you can still
expect to see our “normal” Chalices later in the day, as well as our Game of
the Year, we’re starting today off with our special and console-exclusive
awards. If a game deserved a nod for doing something unique this year, or stood out as
the best title to only be available on one platform, you’ll find it here.
Be sure to check back later this afternoon, as our Platinum Chalices continue!
