Troublesome cameras, rotten language and bare breasts: not things you’d normally associate with a Nintendo game. Okay, some of these occur in third-party titles, but the important fact is that each one carries the Original Nintendo Seal of Quality. And that means Nintendo approved them all. Not so bad for a company famous for its censorship back in the early nineties, huh? So the next time somebody pokes fun at Nintendo for being
Everyday we receive hundreds of cheats submissions from people hoping to get their work (and their names) up on CheatPlanet. Some of these people are stupid. These are the absolute worst submissions we've had all week. Like this excerpt from a cheat you'll find on page two:
"…This cheat can only be done by sexy atractive peops like me, so if ur not atractive dnt try it, and then if u do try and it dosent work, ur obviously not as
If digg, N4G and NeoGaf are any indication, the internet was invented solely for gaming Neanderthals to argue about the console wars. "Framerate" this, "exclusive game" that. "Pixel bump shader fliter proxy triple mipmapping" this, "physics porn" that. It's really quite tiring, isn't it? What if we told you there was a clear and easy way to predict each victor with 90% accuracy - a way to forever silence the incessant forum-vomiting that
Game trailers are as vital a part of our cultural landscape as gas stations or fast food. The perfect trailer is a balance of action, sex and drama that leaves the crowd begging for more. Since we at GamesRadar are finely tuned to the appetites of modern audiences, we’ve chopped together the Best Trailer Ever for your viewing enjoyment. Now if only someone would make the game to go with it!

Getting into the console business is an expensive, volatile proposition. The costs are exorbitant, the customer base is fickle and often hostile to newcomers, and putting together a cutting-edge machine means either slapping on a prohibitive price tag or losing hundreds of dollars on every sale. With that in mind, it's no surprise that the history of videogames is littered with forgotten systems that never even had a chance to
“We’re in the era of casual games, and it’s time to say ‘this is for the hardcore gamer’,” says Hideo Kojima, creator of Metal Gear Solid 4. “So it’s really, really important [MSG4] succeeds.” Has he got a point? With budgets spiraling (a decent next-gen title costs anywhere from $20-40 million) companies are becoming more risk-averse, keener on pumping out sure things than trying out new
See if you can guess what game we’re talking about: in the war-torn near future, a supersolider - outfitted in skin-tight armor - wages battle against legions of aliens/other supersoldiers. To protect his scar-ridden face, he dons a nondescript, yet sleek helmet, thereby rendering him mute and indistinguishable from everything else on sale. Give up? It’s a trick question.

Every week we get hundreds of cheat submissions from our readers to add to CheatPlanet. Only a few of these actually survive the brutal, razor-sharp scrutiny and testing we put them through, and emerge as the fine cheat flavored paste that we put onto CheatPlanet. Most of the leftovers we just throw away, flush them down the internet tube never to be seen again. However, there are a few exceptionally stinky cheats that we feel
You know that red line that pops up in Word, Firefox or any other program with a spell check? It's helpful, don't get us wrong, but they really should spend some time working on spell check's virtual intuition. When we typed "Firefox," just now while writing this article, the red line asked if we meant "firebox." Um no, we didn't. And that's what happens countless times every second across the world when people type in video game names -
We’ve already seen the first three Star Wars films moulded into our favourite Danish building blocks. But now it’s time to move away from intergalactic wars - there are arks to be raided, and grails to be discovered. Enter Indiana Jones.
So it may not be quite as polished as its force welding counterpart, and yes The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skulls was a disappointment, but watching Indy’s first three adventures flash before you in brilliant Lego-vision will convince you that there’s life in the old dog yet.
