Most JRPGs are the grouchy grandpas of the gaming world, set in their outdated ways and loath to change the habits of a lifetime.
You’d think that games based around superheroes would be the ultimate expression of incredible powers. Nope. Unfortunately, most superhero tie-ins have had more tedious tasks than chances to protect the planet
You know that red line that pops up in Word, Firefox or any other program with a spell check? It's helpful, don't get us wrong, but they really should spend some time working on spell check's virtual intuition. When we typed "Firefox," just now while writing this article, the red line asked if we meant "firebox." Um no, we didn't. And that's what happens countless times every second across the world when people type in video game names -
Even two console generations ago we stopped batting our eyelids if games contained other, smaller games within them. It didn’t even seem odd if whole games were made up of dozens of little ones. Nowadays we use minigame mechanisms to open doors, enact fancy stealth kills, slaughter bosses or open chests. Minigames are everywhere, be it shoving boulders in Conan, coercing peasants in Oblivion or doing anything at all in Thrillville or
Here at CheatPlanet we're always trying to sort through the cheat submissions to find the tiny nuggets of helpful information hidden among the hundreds of moronic submissions we receive each day. It's a thankless job, one that we keep working on only because of our love of cheats and the happiness we feel when looking into a child's smiling face after he or she unlocks the second set of weapons in GTA IV (Call GUN-555-0100) and
There have been many articles written about video game and comic book film adaptations, but I've noticed there are very few discussions about what makes a decent game adaptation of a movie. Why do we expect so little of game adaptations? Can the game ever be better than the movie? In order to make game adaptations of movies better, here are my humble guidelines...
Okay, Marvel fans... we know many of you weren’t happy with the last Hulk movie. Maybe the director of Brokeback Mountain wasn’t the best choice, but... All hail Ed Norton! He’s here to make all things right in the land of Banner, as the star (and writer?!) of the upcoming film, The Incredible Hulk. And as you might have expected, he’s also lending his charisma to the game, along with Liv Tyler and other principle members of cast.
If you don’t know your superheroes, you might have glanced at Iron Man and had him down as a dull robot-faced crime fighter. He’s actually one of Marvel’s coolest characters - a billionaire playboy genius with a ’70s ‘stache, an eye for the ladies and a heart of actual steel. And that’s before Tony Stark puts on his self-designed flying armour and becomes the Invincible Iron Man. Beat that Peter Parker

It turns out that from 1961-71 there were no guns, turtle shells or otherwise attached to any racecars in the Indy 500, at least if the historically accurate Wii and DS game Indianapolis 500 Legends is to be trusted. We weren't about to let a sub-standard arsenal keep us from having a good time, so we focused on the one thing Indy 500 is really about: driving a car.
The game takes you through ten years of the Indy 500 with historical drivers, cars, track conditions and
What's the biggest problem with the Hulk movie? There's just not enough action. And what does Hulk do best? Hulk smash. To make up for the lack of chaos in both the film and its 2003 game, Ultimate Destruction throws more tanks, jets and titanic mechs your way than any other game in existence. But no matter the odds, regardless of how many people are burning, blasting or broiling the Hulk, one truth never changes - Hulk will smash everything into the ground.
The game starts off normally
