Who did: Cold War
And live in: Prague, Czech Republic
The outfit behind recent Xbox release Cold War, the game best described as a crap Splinter Cell, announced this buddy shooter back in October last year. Since then, nothing. We haven't seen any fresh screens or details in a long while and the game was absent from E3.
Is it still in development? There's no evidence to suggest
Football is all about scoring. Actually, screw that. Football is all about rubbing the other team's noses in it when you slam one in their net. And there's no better game for being a showboating SOB than EA's upcoming FIFA World Cup game. Below you'll find some of the funniest and downright stupid ways to celebrate goals in the game, which range from dancing, doing a Cantona, to faking a stroke.

Gaming technology has come on so far in the short thirty years since Space Invaders and Pac-Man. But what if it hadn't? What if, say, Nintendo's first black and green-screened Game Boy was the only console that had ever existed?
A terrifying thought, indeed. But we reckon our favourite games would probably look something like this:
England, eh? The source of so much joy but so much more heartache. Having struggled through their group stage so far with two disappointing draws (although I'm sure our US comrades would disagree), it all comes down to this afternoon's game against Slovenia. Surely we can beat Slovenia? Well, 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa can tell us - watch the highlights of our simulated game right here:
Being the internet connoisseurs that we are, we stumbled upon a highly amusing article that pondered the deadly serious question of what superheroes would do if they were assholes. After we’d successfully boarded the roflcopter, we knocked up our own version starring game heroes abusing their skills. So if you’ve ever wondered what would happen if Solid Snake used his powers of super sneakery for evil, you’ve come to the right place…
Swear words are used in film, TV and games to glorious effect. But sometimes the sheer quantity of obscenity causes the words to lose their meaning. Ever the cultural explorers here at GR, we’ve compiled a list of the ten swearing-est games we could think of. Then we grabbed footage from the first hour of each, and chopped it down to just the dirty words. Very scientific.

The inauguration of President Barack Obama has made this a historic week in America, but TalkRadar is happy to ignore all that in favor of what really matters: talking about videogames. This week’s podcast is devoted to chatting about games we wish would be announced for US release this year, long-forgotten skateboarding games and Chris’ uncanny ability to mimic voice samples from Genesis/Mega Drive games.
Ignoring the advice of our legal team, we spice up 3D Dot Game Heroes with characters from Portal, Final Fantasy, and more...
Looking for categories like Best PSP Driving Game? Greatest Achievement in Control Layout, Artistic? Eastern European Developer Most Worth Watching in 2011? Then our end-of-year awards might not be for you.
GamesRadar's Platinum Chalices are different. We're not interested in checking off a massively tedious list of genres, platforms and technical subdivisions… we'd much rather focus on the stuff that makes this hobby, you know, fun. And reward whichever games delivered the most of that stuff.
So if you're looking for the best fan service, most satisfying gore or greatest achievement in old-school kickassery in 2010, you've definitely come to the right celebration. Let's get it started…
Regardless of what we gave 3D Dot Game Heroes in our review today, it’s a 10 or 11 in terms of raw nostalgia. Hell, the load screens alone will validate your entire existence!
