The moment Steve Jobs wrapped up his propaganda-esque pitch for Apple’s “what is this for?” iPad, we immediately wondered just how big it would be compared to the other handheld devices gamers typically use. Using something called a “ruler,” along with “pencil and paper,” we measured and mocked up the iPad standing next to leading machines – and then promptly used Photoshop to present them.
Apple just announced a tablet called the iPad? What a surprise! This is like the time that boat sunk at the end of Titanic! So why is GamesRadar covering this? What does Apple's tablet mean to gamers? Would we pose vague questions without following them with wildly speculative answers?
Wait a sec – why is GamesRadar, an unapologetically hardcore gaming website, covering a new Apple product launch with such intensity? Well, if internet buzz is any indication, this new tablet/iSlate/iPad device could very well do for computers what the iPhone did for communication, application sharing and on-the-go gaming. Speculation about its capabilities has long since passed “wild,” recently eclipsed
Earlier this year we posted a video of our extremely handsome mugs chattering on about the most important games of the past decade. Did you miss it? Were you so distracted by our handsome facial hair that our words washed across you impotently like waves over rocks? Good news everyone!
Every Sunday in Tokyo’s Yoyogi Park, one can find Japanese teens and adults in all sorts of outrageous outfits. From glam rock wannabes to videogame and anime characters, the park is packed with those who choose to leave behind their normal lives for an afternoon.

With that in mind, we thought it might be helpful to give you a guide on how to spot impending video game danger. After you’ve brushed up on our exhaustive guide, which covers every sure-fire sign of peril from ominous music to
Everyone knows Tetris. Everyone loves Tetris. But did you know that Tetris can teach you much more than just how to tidy things up in a nice, orderly fashion? Well it can. Visualised through the medium of seven different coloured shapes, Tetris is a tiny parallel microcosm of our own lives. We are possibly talking bollocks, but these are, in our opinion, the things that Tetris teaches us about life. Prepare for existential
Let's be blunt. Last week’s Consumer Electronics Show was a flop and, from a gaming perspective, a full-on, colossal letdown. An expo that once played host to some of the most important events in videogame history – such as the legendary moment when Nintendo turned its back on partner Sony, thus creating its own archrival – is a completely different experience today
Mark Hamill unleashes a fiendish cackle that simultaneously sounds like skin ripped from flesh and fingernails dragged across corrugated iron. If the bowels of hell have a soundtrack, this is it.

Video games that were once great and mighty and strong but have for whatever reason failed to retain their status as being a big deal.
