Before the hype machine for September's CG flick Open Season can even begin, Ubisoft is already letting people know about their video game adaptation. In the grand tradition of Ice Age, Madagascar and Over the Hedge, you control grotesquely disproportioned animals as they engage in wacky hijinx. But this time you're wild animals looking to give inept hunters a hard time. This from Ubisoft Montreal - yes, the same Ubisoft Montreal that creates the consistently fantastic Splinter Cell stealth

Buena Vista Games has announced The Wild, a GBA game based on an upcoming Disney movie - and we've rounded up some screens for you to take a gander at.
Casting you as Samson the lion, it's your job to escape the New York City Zoo and rescue Samson's son, Ryan, who's been accidentally shipped back to the wild. By teaming up with a squirrel named Benny, Samson has to make his way back to the jungle and save his offspring - presumably before he's been shot, stuffed and
Critically beloved but still not the most popular kid in class, the funky-haired, no-limbed Rayman is still chugging along. Today, we learned he's getting a fourth game, which publisher Ubisoft announced will hit stores in time for the

Pavement golf, fairway destruction derbys and remote control street races are all in the offing for players of Over the Hedge, Activision's fast approaching cartoon adventure based on the latest film from DreamWorks - and we've got a video showing these multiplayer minigames in action.

It's official: Japan gets all the coolest stuff. If you need confirmation, just tilt your head and check out the image below. Yup, it's a sheet of Super Mario Bros stamps that our lucky Japanese friends will soon be able to lick and stick or - more likely - covet and cherish for all time.
As if the sheet of 10 stamps inspired by the SNES classic weren't desirable enough on their own, they also come in a special Super Mario Bros case. It's like a tiny papery Christmas
What we thought for sure was an April Fools' joke is actually the real deal. The legendary painter of happy little trees, the late Bob Ross (or more specifically, Bob Ross Inc.), is working on software for the Revolution, Nintendo DS and PC. These titles would be developed by AGFRAG Entertainment Group.
The games would obviously use Nintendo's unique interfaces to simulate brush strokes and hopefully provide an authentic Bob Ross painting experience. Despite the notable handicap of being
If you've frequented a bowling alley, movie theater or Wal-Mart vestibule in the past few years, you've no doubt seen the carnival-shooter Point Blank. The gun game - as in, you actually hold a plastic gun and shoot things - throws all kinds of state fair minigames your way, like blasting ducks or acing chickens in a set time limit. Now it's coming to the Nintendo
Fifty-six. That's the average age we editors at GamesRadar are getting when we first fire up the mind-twisting Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day. While our memories of the average '80s weekend may vary, none of us quite hits that age bracket just yet (and in fact, our scores seem to get better quickly, at least at first). But it doesn't matter - this mental Twister mat isn't about competition.
We recently had a chat with two guys responsible for translating and porting Brain Age to
