Late 1994 saw the release of the Japanese Final Fantasy VI (as Final Fantasy III, don't ask) on the Super Nintendo. It was so far ahead of what players were used to getting in their RPGs in terms of story, scope, and customization that it became the definitive role-playing title of the generation.

You gotta love the Star Wars universe. It's so expansive that even with the main core of the films done there's always room to keep pimping the franchise. And because there's a freakin' galaxy at stake in these star wars, there will always be more than enough heroes and villains to populate the never-ending supply of video games we get.

Welcome to the fifth week of PokemonRadar, GamesRadar's look at the new Pokemon of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, out now in Japan. We're getting deep into the game, here, but we'll still be providing Pokemon for longer than you can imagine. Keep your eyes here.
This week we're looking at five Pokemon with but a single evolutionary stage. While single-stage Pokemon are generally less popular than those that evolve, they can often have interesting and experimental type combinations and often learn

Everybody loves lists, and last week we brought you the mother of all number-based countdowns - a momentous walkthrough of our 101 favouritest, thrillingest and most-remembered-est moments from the last 10 years in gaming. And, because we're nice and care about you all, in case you missed it we've gathered the whole week's worth of videogame-worshipping in one place.
Actually collecting the last decade's 101 greatest gaming moments wasn't just about creating a huge list
If you're not familiar with the Fullmetal Alchemist world, understand that it's 1910, and alchemy, the science-magic of turning stuff into other stuff: super hot. Want a necklace? Just find something of similar size, like a loop of rope, draw some runes on it,
Ah, bosses! How we love their layered life bars, cheap super-attacks and exposed weak points. It's the rules that games have to have them, so in this roll-call we look at seven titans that really threw their weight around.
These are some of the biggest of the big, deserving of their boss status by barely fitting on the screen, let alone playing unfair.
7. The Hydra, God of War, (PS2, 2005)
In a game that does everything big, you expect some mighty bosses, but what you don't expect is one
As if you aren't already spending gobs of time filling out your license boards in Final Fantasy XII, now we've got two more Final Fantasy games coming in the span of a week. These revamped re-releases, Final Fantasy V Advance and Final Fantasy III, will soon be appearing on store shelves, both in handy-dandy portable format for you to get your RPG on anywhere you please.

The insatiable puffball Kirbys back once again, but his second DS outing looks to play more like his traditional games than last year's stylus-heavy Canvas Curse. You'll guide the pink one through Dreamland in search of stolen treasure and, of course, a host of new powers to ingest.
Probably the coolest thing about Squeak Squad is its power-up system. You can now use the touch screen (which displays the inside of Kirbys stomach) to mix items that he's inhaled to form new, more effective
