This year has left us absolutely knackered. We're exhausted. We feel like we've been in a marathon. A marathon that involves mostly sitting on our arses and playing one incredible game after another. We could indulge you with a long list of stellar examples, but you're a gamer - you know that it's been a properly arousing 12 months. If you're anything like us, your wow glands will be swollen and you'll have blisters on your eyeballs. It's been that good.
So as gamers we're all

Christmas is the sad time of year when well-meaning relatives and friends waste their money on gifts you pretend to like. You know what were talking about. Sweaters youll never wear, candles youll never light, and gift cards for stores you rarely visit are just some of the typical offenders that scream “I dont know you, but I had to get you something!”
But the worst presents for gamers are awful games, because you know the gift givers hands were inches away from a

Don King Presents: Prizefighter is apparently "the most realistic boxing video game simulation," according to 2K Sports. "This in-depth, documentary-style title will provide the deepest, most authentic and entertaining experience ever seen in a boxing video game."
Prizefighter is currently in development at Venom Games for Xbox 360, Wii and DS - behind Rocky Legends and, technically, Rocky (Venom Games boasts ex-Rage staffers in its ranks). The game is slated for a spring 2008

We know were not the only ones who are always on the look out for a bargain, and with the holiday season already upon us every penny we save buying presents for oursleves can be spent on friends and family.
So with this in mind and to save you the trouble of queuing for hours on end, walking for miles and having to deal with unmotivated, grumpy, shop assistants, weve hit digital aisles and hunted down the best deals we could find for each console. But hurry these might not be

The BBC came into the GamesRadar offices to do some filming last week. As a result, a few of us have ended up on TV. Our mums are ever so proud.
You might be aware that UK politicians have started lobbying for better testing of games in regards to the effects they have on epileptics. That all started in our neck of the woods, and so it was only logical that when the Beeb decided to run a feature on the story for its Politics Show, it came to us. Not only are we near to the

Ah, the holidays. Whether you celebrate with a tree, a manger, a dradle, kinara candles or a Festivus pole, you can be pretty sure of two things. One: You're going to have to buy stuff for other people whether you like them or not. And two: it's not a total waste because you're going to get some loot in return as well.
This process isn't inherently right or wrong, but we all know it has the potential to be a whole lot of either. So, GamesRadar is here to help you make sure you

Pirates vs. Ninjas Dodgeball
The pirates vs ninjas meme is deader than Ol Dirty Bastard. Why, then, must we suffer a video in which a bunch of Ren-fair dropouts run around Staten Island shouting, “Arrrr!!” at random motorists? Let it die already, please. It is a matter of historical fact that ninjas are the true holders of real ultimate power. Watch the video if you must, but you might pay for it with a raging case of scurvy. Suggest you immediately apply a

For this week's Pokemusings, we're answering some of your questions! A bunch of peeps in our Pokemon general discussion forums had some queries for us and we consulted our Pokemon think tank to fish up the answers. From Pokemon breeding to Ash Ketchum's sexuality to Pokemon poop, we have our faithful Pokemusings readers covered. Now onto the first question!
Vesuvis029: Is there a way to breed Pokemon and get the nature you want?
Answer: Yes, but it's not an exact method.

What do James Earl Cash, Tommy Vercetti and Sam Fisher all have in common? Two things: First, they've all got criminal records and hard time under their belts. Second, they're not real. They're characters in games. But for every fictional Riddick or Torque, there are dozens of people with very real criminal records who've lent their likenesses and/or voices to games. After literally minutes of exhaustive research at sources like The Smoking Gun (which is also where we lifted most

We heart games. You heart games. But sometimes a dangerous line is crossed and our passionate hobby becomes an outright obsessive occupation. And that's when things can get ugly and/or unhealthy. That's when you need to take a step back and explore that wonderful world outside your window. Go shopping, kick a ball around or, hell, even talk to friends without using a headset. But how do you know when games are taking over your life?
A few sure-fire indications would be, say,
