A good boss battle is like a fine wine. Refined, elegant in its execution and quite likely to kill you fourteen times on the spin. Wait, scratch that last one. Unusually, 2010 has seen a string of games with bosses that not only didn't suck, but actually proved to be some of the biggest highlights of their titles.

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.

We know. We sound like pricks sometimes. Having spent so much time crapping all over just about everything in the Game-O-Sphere, some of you may’ve forgotten that we actually like to play games. So, this episode we’ve set aside some time to talk about some upcoming titles that we’re genuinely excited about.
Oh, we’re still mocking idiotic game audio, laughing hysterically at a certain publisher’s R &B theme song, and mulling over the game smooches creepy enough to deflate boners on Jupiter. But just in time for VD, we’re also spreading a little bit of love to all comers. Don’t worry - we still have a fart button.
The news that Shadow of the Colossus is being turned into a movie – penned by the scribe behind Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li – has made us inconsolable. With the translation from hell about to mangle Sony’s ethereal adventure beyond recognition, all bets are off over what Hollywood’s going to do with videogame properties next. In fact, we’re completely convinced some cynical suits are about to turn our
Contrary to what you might think, E3 isn’t all brilliant new games, booth babes and free beer. A lot of the time the biggest, best and most exciting games event on the planet is actually as dull and hope-dashing as a Sony graph-led press conference. And whether it’s dealing with console delays or waiting in a line (with enough BO to erode titanium) to play Wii Sports, the history of the event has been riddled with letdowns. So to
We'll be live-blogging the three major press conferences of E3 – Microsoft (Monday, 10:30am PST), Nintendo (Tuesday, 9:00am PST) and Sony (Tuesday, 11:00am). Naturally we’ll be here all week reporting every scrap of information we can about the biggest and loudest E3 in years.

There’s no denying it, Microsoft had a strong press conference on the opening day of E3. With the two surviving Beatles in attendance promoting their new Rock Band game, innovative 1:1 motion-sensing technology in Project Natal, a strong line-up of games and exciting new multimedia and social networking possibilities, Sony has to up its game if it’s to keep up with Bill and his boys. Below, we team up with our colleagues at OPM
The biggest gaming show of the year isn't over quite yet, but the three biggest conferences have already come and gone. So what was your favorite moment? Best announcement? Most awkward presenter? Did your favorite company meet your expectations? Tell us what you thought!
Rock Band's lead designer exposes Brett's staggering Beatles ignorance, we ambush Ubisoft to get the inside dirt on Assassin's Creed II and Mikel talks about the joys of gutting centaurs in God of War III. More games, more info, more updates from E3
Every game looks great in screenshots and trailers. Do you really want to wait four months before finding out the game you’ve been lusting after actually sucks and just got its face rocked off by some other game? Of course not. That’s why we’re here. We’ve played everything at E3, and this is what we’re rating each game in its current state, right here and now. Let’s get it on
