Getting into the console business is an expensive, volatile proposition. The costs are exorbitant, the customer base is fickle and often hostile to newcomers, and putting together a cutting-edge machine means either slapping on a prohibitive price tag or losing hundreds of dollars on every sale. With that in mind, it's no surprise that the history of videogames is littered with forgotten systems that never even had a chance to
“We’re in the era of casual games, and it’s time to say ‘this is for the hardcore gamer’,” says Hideo Kojima, creator of Metal Gear Solid 4. “So it’s really, really important [MSG4] succeeds.” Has he got a point? With budgets spiraling (a decent next-gen title costs anywhere from $20-40 million) companies are becoming more risk-averse, keener on pumping out sure things than trying out new
See if you can guess what game we’re talking about: in the war-torn near future, a supersolider - outfitted in skin-tight armor - wages battle against legions of aliens/other supersoldiers. To protect his scar-ridden face, he dons a nondescript, yet sleek helmet, thereby rendering him mute and indistinguishable from everything else on sale. Give up? It’s a trick question.

To help avoid the unnecessary embarrassment of losing machismo points, we've compiled a list of the most unmanly games that you - as men of games - should avoid at all costs.
Every week we get hundreds of cheat submissions from our readers to add to CheatPlanet. Only a few of these actually survive the brutal, razor-sharp scrutiny and testing we put them through, and emerge as the fine cheat flavored paste that we put onto CheatPlanet. Most of the leftovers we just throw away, flush them down the internet tube never to be seen again. However, there are a few exceptionally stinky cheats that we feel
You know that red line that pops up in Word, Firefox or any other program with a spell check? It's helpful, don't get us wrong, but they really should spend some time working on spell check's virtual intuition. When we typed "Firefox," just now while writing this article, the red line asked if we meant "firebox." Um no, we didn't. And that's what happens countless times every second across the world when people type in video game names -
We’ve already seen the first three Star Wars films moulded into our favourite Danish building blocks. But now it’s time to move away from intergalactic wars - there are arks to be raided, and grails to be discovered. Enter Indiana Jones.
So it may not be quite as polished as its force welding counterpart, and yes The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skulls was a disappointment, but watching Indy’s first three adventures flash before you in brilliant Lego-vision will convince you that there’s life in the old dog yet.
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is hitting stores on September 16th and that’s all cool and lovely. But, as you prepare to get your Sith on, why not pause for a moment and consider this for a curve ball…The Force is overrated: FACT!
But it’s an energy field, you say, created by all living things. It surrounds and penetrates living beings. It binds the whole galaxy together for god’s sake. Well, that’s as
Even two console generations ago we stopped batting our eyelids if games contained other, smaller games within them. It didn’t even seem odd if whole games were made up of dozens of little ones. Nowadays we use minigame mechanisms to open doors, enact fancy stealth kills, slaughter bosses or open chests. Minigames are everywhere, be it shoving boulders in Conan, coercing peasants in Oblivion or doing anything at all in Thrillville or
