We love games. We love films. And most of all, we love a good pun. That’s why we’ve taken some of our favourite movies and games and stuffed them into a giant blender for mighty mash-up results. Ever wondered what would happen if Kratos collided with the Corleone crime family? Or if Sackboy met Charlton Heston in Planet of the Apes? Well wonder no more, because we've answered your day-dreaming prayers with the following mash-up movie
In the context of a game, Achievements and Trophies are harmless. They're just carrot-dangling tactics that we're happy to indulge for our greedy pursuit of intangible virtual rewards. We wouldn't think twice about nail-bombing a kitten orphanage if it meant five more gamer points.
But, let's say, purely for the purposes of this here article, that we take Achievements and Trophies out of their virtual world settings and reconsider them
Okay look guys, Disney's been using Wreck-It Ralph to pump video game references out like they're going out of style (they're most assuredly not). It's about time we took a good close look at just how many game characters we can spot in the clips released so far...
Every week GamesRadar receives more game trailers than the internet can be expected to hold, so in those seven days some people might tragically miss a few of these new videos. That's why we've collected them into one new video, remixed for your pleasure...
To celebrate Independence Day (the holiday, not the movie), we’ve scoured our encyclopedic minds for the most patriotic games to be developed. But that wasn’t funny enough. So, we dug deeper to find the most rabidly patriotic games every developed. Ya know - the ones with so much love for Old Glory that it starts to get a little ridiculous. Behold - our results!

Last year a fellow with the Gamertag StripClubDJ became the first Xbox 360 owner to smash through the 100,000 Gamerpoint barrier. Quite an Achievement (excuse the pun). Instead of being shunned by the gaming community for being a daylight-dodging loser, hes been widely revered and showered with friend requests by fellow 360ites.
But if youre not one of the Gamerscore elites, logging in to Live to see your buddies clocking up tens of thousands of points while you languish in the late hundreds
Sony seems to be on something of an HD remake kick lately. This week finally brought us long-awaited confirmation that the Ico and Shadow of the Colossus Collection will head our way sometime next year; with last year’s God of War Collection and the upcoming Sly Collection, that brings to three the number of classic PS2 series Sony’s retrofitting with 1080p visuals and Trophies, before re-releasing as budget-priced PS3 games.
This is a trend we can really get behind; as much as we love our old PS2 games, we can barely stand to look at them anymore. Give them a makeover so they don’t look crap on our new TVs, though, and we’re all over them. With that in mind, here are a few other series from the last generation we’d love to see resurrected for the modern age of HD consoles...
Game music has been a passion of ours roughly since, oh,
1985, but in the past 10 years, it’s come to mean something more. Don’t get us
wrong, we still love the beepatronic music of the 8- and 16-bit periods (and
the wave of chiptune artists it inspired), but the past decade has also seen
licensed music become a surprisingly important part of gaming. Sometimes, this
just means a selection of familiar hits to accompany our music games, but every
so often, a game will use licensed tracks to careful, brilliant effect – and in
the process, will expose legions of gamers to music they might never have heard
What follows are the games and franchises that have been the most
influential in bringing strange and terrifying new musical styles to gamers’
ears – and in the interest of making this our most self-indulgent Top 7 since that other one, we’ve
asked a handful of our editors to explain what made each one important to them
Not everyone owns an iPhone, it just seems that way because they get all the coverage. Android owners know Google's platform has plenty of quality apps too, though it can be tough sifting through the dross. The following 25 have caused us a few sleepless nights and some very sore fingertips...
