If there’s one thing us gamers love to do, it’s sit on our asses. And rarely are we ever tempted away from blowing the crap out of zombies and Nazis to partake in the sportsman-like area of gaming. Hell, anything involving increased blood flow, stretching or rapid movement is a waste of time if there’s no cutscene for our rewards. Even sports games can be our kryptonite (your older brother who buys nothing but Madden and
Since his introduction in 1987, Mega Man has starred in more than 100 video games spanning nearly every console and handheld in existence. After several hugely successful titles, Mega Man ceased to be a game character and became a part of pop culture, with countless references across all mediums and cameos in even more Capcom titles.
So. Did you get a load of our maddeningly expansive Mega Man Retrospective? What can we say? We love the guy. But if you’re part of the Mega uninitiated, we offer you education. Haven’t spent quality time with the little blue bastard since the NES days? Here’s your chance to get reconnected.
Listen: We’ve got a total of NINE PRIZE PACKS to give away! Here’s what’s up for grabs:
Just being able to play games is only the beginning. If you're going to call yourself a proper gamer (as opposed to a casual pretender) there are a few requisite skills that you must master first. 50 skills, in fact. And they're all right here
Pac-Man's got to be right up there with Mario as one of the most recognisable videogame characters of all time. And because his basic design is simple, you can see him everywhere. Whenever you take a slice of pizza or cut a segment from a cake, he's there. Then the noise starts to go in your head: waka waka waka waka waka
Welcome to the monthly roundup of the weird, the wonderful and the ever so slightly perverted things that wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for the inspiration provided by 30-odd years of Nintendo gaming.
In the brave new world of the internet, everybody has power. Information is interactive, knowledge is collaborative and history is open source. The nerdy kid next door has just as much influence as a high school teacher; the dorky dude at the comic book shop has just as much voice as a college professor.
Problem is, the nerds and dorks tend to have a lot more free time - and passion - than the teachers and professors. The end result? A hilariously skewed, terrifyingly twisted view of the world in which all the wrong things are deemed "important" and worthy of serious academic discussion.
Here at GamesRadar we've played and beat every game ever made (without dying or saving, and using only one hand). We know it sounds impressive, but for us it was no biggie; we're all very talented gamers who never lose. We understand that this isn't the case for everyone, so we've put together these helpful guides to help others play like us.
Being the whiney-ass jerks we are, we love to complain about our jobs. “X publisher is being a dick! Every game I play sucks! I hate doing a job that thousands of people would kill baby seals to do!”
In our defense, it isn’t easy sorting this hurricane of press releases, PR bullshit, speculation, trailers, screens, and boob jokes into something intelligible and interesting. Nevertheless, we are far from the
As Sega’s Dreamcast led the charge in next-gen gaming, the 90s dissolved into the double-Os and gamers eagerly anticipated Sony’s successor to their 100 million selling original PlayStation. And as Nintendo further sought to reach the casual consumer, PC giant Microsoft would stun gamers with their forceful entry into the console market. Sega would soon be put out to pasture. Join us as we chart the past rocky decade of the
