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.

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 -
Hopefully, many of you walked away with a brand new Darkrai last weekend. If you did, we'd love to hear about the nature and IVs of your new Pokemon. Now that one legendary giveaway is out of the way (for Japan and America anyway), let's start preparing for the next awesome giveaway: Shaymin!

Stare at our wall o’ surgery - and stare you should - and it’s impossible not to see the debt Under The Knife 2 owes to its big Wii brother. Revamped graphics - the more solidly-3D Wii bodies and organs have been shipped in - are accompanied by the various surgical tweakings implemented for the remote. The rib cage and leg operations see the terrific bone jigsaws return and we’ve also seen the defibrillators make their
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
Wait a second, don't run away! Yes we know, the Neopets name might sting like poisoned gasoline but hear us out. You like Puzzle Quest, right? You like going on quests, busting gems to gain mana for spells, buying items and all that fantasy crap that made an already addictive game downright irresistible, right? Thought so. And that's exactly why you're going to like

Last week Capcom revealed one of its strongest lineups in ages during the Captivate 08 event (we briefly talked about it on TalkRadar).
