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:
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.

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.

If you've picked up 3D Dot Game Heroes this week (or just read our review), you already know that it's a love letter to the 8- and 16-bit eras of gaming, jam-packed with references to old-school games and game culture. It also features more than a few sly references to developer From Software's earlier efforts, like Demon's Souls. What a lot of people might not have realized, however, is that From "hid" a bunch of self-referential character cameos right in its character-select screen.
