Will there ever be a point where we all just stop caring about these damn movies? You know you're going to suck it up and by the original trilogy on DVD this fall... which means LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy is probably on your shopping list too.
Weve got four new screens of the destructible, rebuild-able tikes from the game, so please, feel free to hit the images tab up above to check them
We got some curious footage of the Rayman development team apparently under siege by nefarious rabbits - or rather, "rabbids." We'd heard that Rayman Raving Rabbids was about bunnies wreaking havoc on the Rayman world, but we had no idea that they had escaped the development environment to harass real, flesh-and-blood people in France.
We've picked up a few new screens of these hateful hares in their "natural" digital environment (which Ubisoft has confirmed is Wii along with "current and
This year's Electronic Entertainment Expo held more than its share of surprises - however, there are few in this year's Game Critics Award nominee list, released today. We're not sure how Heavenly Sword ended up in the Fighting game category when God of War II is Action/Adventure (the GamesRadar US ballot had them both in A/A), but overall, this is an excellent list of this year's best of the best of the best - at least at this point in their development cycles.
The graphically astonishing
GamesRadar's more studious, business-focused sibling Next Generation (www.next-gen.biz) has been kind enough to remind us what games we're all slavering to dash into stores and pick up this week. We recommend checking out the NextGen shopping list by clicking here (it'll open in a new window).
However, we'd also suggest you should wait until later this week, when you've read GamesRadar's full-sized reviews of each game before slapping down your hard-earned mad money on any particular title.
E3. It's the biggest, loudest, most surprising video gaming convention of the entire year, a cacophony of madness that overloads at least three of your senses - sometimes four, unfortunately.
It's naturally packed with more games than any one gamer could ever hope to possess and play, but that's where we come in. We've spent hours first playing each and every one we could and then arguing to the brink of violence about which was best. Then, we made lists for
Lately, we've seen a lot of movie-based games that try to expand on - instead of directly adapt - the story of the film they're based on. The Godfather did it, Over the Hedge did it and this summer, Cars will do it. Picking up where the movie left off, Cars casts players as red stock-car Lightning McQueen and sets them loose to explore the colorful desert town of Radiator Springs.

So, that was E3 2006. The most manic week of the gaming calendar has hurtled by once again in a tornado of news and a frenzy of game playing. Now, as relative calm returns and the chaos slowly seeps away, we look back on the big games, the big announcements, the highlights and the disappointments.
Much of the week's hottest news happened before the doors had opened on E3, with Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft all making some big announcements at their pre-show

LucasArts has released a ton of new screenshots for Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, which will be released for PS2, Xbox, GameCube and PC on 1 July.
This time around it's the turn of the original trilogy to get the built-by-block treatment and, while the action is basically the same as the previous Lego Star Wars game, we expect it to be a huge hit simply because it's fun watching Lego figures recreating the classic scenes.

While the sound of E3 might still be ringing in our ears, the show is over, the stands have been dismantled and the cleaners are performing the unenviable task of cleaning up the mess left by thousands of men (and a few women).
With bleary eyes and saturated synapses, we've compiled a list of our top 20 E3 2006 stories. Not only do we urge you to peruse the fine collection of our most significant show moments listed below, we should also remind you that you can sift
It seems to be a rite of passage that every cartoon-y, platform-y game character must eventually star in a kart racing game. This summer, one of the earliest arcade stars - Pac-Man, one of few modern game characters who can remember when Mario was a rookie - gets his turn behind the wheel.
He's not alone - there are at least 15 characters in all, including the fire-breathing dragon Fygar from Namco's arcade classic Dig-Dug and a certain roll-headed prince from a more modern hit, Katamari
