Now that Smash Bros. Brawl has infiltrated every nook and cranny of the internet, expect to see boatloads of features from any site that covers video games. We'll be hitting the game hard too, providing new content every Sunday with SmashRadar. We had tons of great ideas to get the Brawl party started, but once the playing actually began, the simplest concept leapt right out of the screen and into our hearts: page after page of hot
Derp! Ready the eBay accounts, cause that company that prints game box art - Acme Video Game Box Art Co. Inc. Ltd., we believe they’re called - pulled a gargantuan boner and misprinted a shitload of our favorite titles. We don’t mean to call them out, but we can’t allow the public to be misled.
Patents establish legal ownership of an idea. It’s not just for bragging rights - it’s to stop other people profiting from something you claim to have invented. It’s a big deal in videogameland, not least because it keeps inventions in the hands of one publisher.Games from other stables can use patented ideas, but they’ll have to pay the patent holder for a license. Thus, patents shape games hugely. If you’ve ever
A choice selection of seductive, curvaceous, sensual, saucy and downright sexy fanart from the net. Indulge yourself with an artistic eye-full of Jill Valentine, Kasumi, Samus Aran, Yuna, Princess Peach and plenty more. It's hot and very probably not safe for work time browsing.
You like games. We like games too. But there are a ton of gamers out there who can make even the hardest of hardcore fans look like worthless know-nothing luddites with their extreme passion for the rare and obscure. No matter how much you think you like games, we doubt you’ll ever match these fans’ extreme displays of true devotion. Don’t believe us? Read on and decide for yourself.Your library sucksThink you’ve got a
Damn, was this a tough category to comb through. Both High-Def formats have an insatiable thirst for loud noises, taking to things that go BOOM like a politician to babies. There are a lot of deceptive titles out there, like Shooter and Shoot 'Em Up, purporting to be the ultimate purveyor of balls-out ballistics. Don't you believe it. To paraphrase Shakespeare, those titles "be bullshitin' on Front Street."
On some level, roughly 95 percent of games have always been about assassination: go to point A and kill prominent entity B, fighting your way through goons C through Z to get there. Most games tend to come up with a morally justifiable pretext for all the violence, but more and more, we're seeing games that drop the act and let you be what you've secretly known yourself to be all along: a remorseless killing machine bent on destroying your targets.

Top array of stuff here this month, but not a single cake. Well probably have that fixed by Easter, when itll be Galaxy eggs and chocolate controllers all round. The No More Heroes toilet paper is a particular highlight this month, even though it looks like it would dissolve at the first hint of trouble.

This amazing music video from Detroit band Philo-san sort of passed us by in the summer, but the internet has given it eternal life on YouTube and we just

Nintendo are masters of illusion, hiding some of the biggest games-to-be from the public eye with the kind of skill thatd turn even David Blaine into a how-dey-do-dat. Try looking into their top hat and all youll find is Reggie Fils-Aime uttering a nuh-uh and waving a bar chart to distract you from any gaming rabbits that may be inside. Simply put: youll only know when Nintendo want you to know.
Scour the net and youll see just how watertight Nintendos secrets ship is. New games

To get into an R-rated movie, you have to be at least 17 years old or accompanied by an adult. We know a few ways around this rule, but we choose to shelter the children we know from intense violence, gore and sexuality and will not mention them in this article. There are occasional R-rated movies that end up becoming games, and out of those, there are some that are actually designed for kids. We don't care if kids play those. We're ironic that way.
That these games exist means
