You Don't Know Jack was a smart ass trivia game back in the '90s whose popularity peaked with a TV spinoff hosted by Paul Reubens in 2001. The TV show only lasted six episodes, but the game itself is still solid a decade later. After being away for many years, the smarmy rebirth of the series, which trades equally on high-brow and low-brow knowledge, returned to consoles back in February. Now it's on the iPhone and iPad, which means players can now be snarkily informed of their own stupidity while on the go...
In this episode of Trailer Trash Theatre, we take a look at trailers from the new Green Lantern game, The Kings' Crusade, Ys Chronicles I & II, and... Kinectimals?! Wait, wasn't that game out a while ago already? Well, this trailer is new, but the contents inside aren't new to us - it's just more crap! Click ahead to watch the video.
Uh oh, it's time. One member of TalkRadar UK - and to a larger extent GamesRadar - is about to be ended, no more, fired into the sun in a rocket. But who will it be? The suspense is killing us and we already know who it is. You can find out by listening to this week's podcast, which features all five members of the pod squad - Justin, Dave H, Meiks, Cundy and Nathan.
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…
It is required by law that every fitness videogame published after 1978 must include an attractive female in tight clothing on its cover, regardless of actual content. This naturally got the attention of our boner, as most things eventually do, and launched us on a Quixotic quest to discover which videogame fitness coach will best service your insatiable autoerotic needs. But buying fitness games can be embarrassing, so rehearse this simple script before entering the store...
Islands are the biggest 'get-out-of-jail-free' cards in videogame design. Firstly, they allow developers to create a defined perimeter without having to explain away invisible walls with forcefields or malaria. It also gives them license to plausibly fill said island with anything from dinosaurs to trifle. It's an island – it can be anything it needs to be.
It was playing Treasure Island Dizzy recently that became the basis for this list. The excitement of an uncharted island to explore may not have changed over the years, but its execution certainly has. Where we used to play on islands of treasure or rainbows, we now face convicts, pimps and ninjas. Both kinds have their merits, but which is best? Let's find out...
The producer of the original Sonic the Hedgehog, Yuji Naka, has unveiled his latest game: Ivy the Kiwi? But, as with his new studio Prope's previous game Let’s Tap, you won’t have direct control of your character.
But is this kind of control system actually appealing? As someone whose mind baulked the first time Link auto-jumped off a ledge in Zelda, I have to say it's a bit disappointing. How do you feel about it?
Last night Konami came to town and swept us up in a tidal wave of new game announcements and new-fangled information on games we’ve been dying to know more about. But why search high and low for our fresh takes on those games when you can find them all here?
The simply-named Yoga is yet another get-in-shape-on-the-Wii game, and you'll be skipping over it at game retailers when it's released this Spring. We wouldn't have bothered writing anything if we didn't notice that it features Anja Rubik, the Polish model and yoga enthusiast who made this article possible. That was redundant, but it doesn't matter, because you're not reading this, you're looking at the images below, which can be found in their original forms on Rubik's website.
