What do Gears of War 2, Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, Halo 3, Dead Space and Prey all have in common? Well, they were all innovative, highly praised and sold well at a time when - ok, let's drop the pretense. You’re here about the ass.
There are many examples of game level archetypes that designers go back to again and again. How many Sewers, Ice Worlds or Warehouse Maps have you experienced in your gaming life?
Nintendo's family-friendly handheld finally has something 18-rated on it. If ever a game was going to grow your DS a set of man balls, it's this. And here's why
So, today is the day when George Bush finally - finally - exits the White House. His eight year stint in the presidential hot seat will be remembered for many things. Most of them bad and with terrifyingly global ramifications. But GamesRadar isn't the place to pick apart George W Bush's political legacy. No. That's what the rest of the internets is for.

The first quarter (January through March) is usually a time of “catch-up,” where you play all the stuff that keeps piling up on your teetering backlog of games. Not happening this time.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy, Ghostbusters on C64, Aladdin, Goldeneye, Riddick: the list of great movie tie-ins is barely longer than Russell Crowe’s temper. What chances, then, of even seeing a few good ones during 2009?
