Have a good
weekend guys? GamesRadar sure did, as we got a bit of a tune-up this weekend
after our 24-hour marathon. After updates to much of the behind-the-scenes
stuff you need not worry about, GR is back online, so everything is different,

Faced with the dilemma of having turned literally every story ever told by humans into at least three movies (all of them excellent, obviously, and most of them starring Sam Worthington), Hollywood executives have turned to the obvious next source of inspiration: things that aren't stories. In addition to the upcoming Battleship and Monopoly movies, Lorenzo di Bonaventura – producer of all three Transformers movies, as well as Doom and Constantine – has just acquired the rights to Space Invaders, with a view to making it into a blockbuster...
Warning: the following video contains scenes of violence against classic Nintendo technology for the sole purpose of creating wicked cool beats. It is not intended for squares, monocle wearing videogame collectors, or viewers who should really be doing something productive right now. It's also catchy as hell. So really, your call...
Super Mario Bros for the NES/Famicom turned 25 today, and that’s quite an anniversary for arguably the most well known game in the world. Though it wasn’t Mario’s first appearance – that was as Jumpman in Donkey Kong (1981) – SMB is still the biggest moment in the humble plumber’s life and a touchstone for an entire generation of players. And to celebrate this occasion, Nintendo has opened up a special site for Mario’s super quarter-centennial...
Youtube is a bottomless well of time wasting nonsense, isn’t it? And we’ve had some good times with the site, plus we’re suckers for anyone playing Mario music on anything, most recently in the form of an excellent beatbox version of the famous theme. So obviously, we had to share this with you the moment we found it...
Mark your calendars, because March 10, 2009 will go down in history as the day that the best issue of the Official Xbox Magazine hit newsstands. That’s right. Next to money, OXM’s April, 2009 issue will be the most valuable thing that’s been printed on paper. Ever.

The first official teaser trailer has appeared online for LEGO Batman.

Ever since the release of 2001's groundbreaking Grand Theft Auto III, there've been seemingly hundreds of games that shamelessly rip off its free-roaming, carjacking open-world formula. But as hard as the pretenders try, there's still only one
