Surely we can beat Slovenia? Well, 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa can tell us - watch the highlights of our simulated game right here:
Being the internet connoisseurs that we are, we stumbled upon a highly amusing article that pondered the deadly serious question of what superheroes would do if they were assholes. After we’d successfully boarded the roflcopter, we knocked up our own version starring game heroes abusing their skills. So if you’ve ever wondered what would happen if Solid Snake used his powers of super sneakery for evil, you’ve come to the right place…
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.

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.

Every player old enough to remember a previous console will have favorite old-school games that – to them – still stand up to the very best games of today. Gears of War? It rocks, but it’s no Contra on NES. Batman: Arkham Asylum? Give us Duck Tales.

Without a moment’s hesitation or guidance, we slashed at the nearest patch of grass and picked up the money that popped out, fired our hookshot-esque device at a wooden post to cross over a gap, pushed blocks around to make our way to a cracked wall, and then exploded said wall with a bomb - but not before poking our sword against the wall to hear if the resulting clanking was different

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…
Regardless of what we gave 3D Dot Game Heroes in our review today, it’s a 10 or 11 in terms of raw nostalgia. Hell, the load screens alone will validate your entire existence!
Welcome to GamesRadar's guide to finding tons of tiny objects in a gigantic overworld! Here you'll find tips on how to find oodles of Apple Shards, Magic Up's, and Small Blocks (which, if you're new to 3D Dot Game Heroes, are very important later on since they serve as a form of currency to buy new and exciting swords from the Block King.)
