We talk about Skyrim, Modern Warfare, Mario 3D Land, and music that touched our hearts... and our butts...
I love iOS games. Maybe more than I thought was humanly possible, but I
bloody adore the little blighters. I’ve gone as far as to alphabetise
the library so they have their own dedicated area to live.
In fact I love them so much that I've decided to write an article carefully detailing why they will always have a special place in my heart. WARNING: Uncapped gushing awaits inside.
Corporate pay and bonuses are all the
rage these days, with the "Occupy (Etc.)" protests going on (whatever you happen
to think of them), so we thought we’d kick off the debut of Ask GR Anything with a look at the gaming
industry’s most reviled CEO: Mr. Robert A. Kotick...
Game music has been a passion of ours roughly since, oh,
1985, but in the past 10 years, it’s come to mean something more. Don’t get us
wrong, we still love the beepatronic music of the 8- and 16-bit periods (and
the wave of chiptune artists it inspired), but the past decade has also seen
licensed music become a surprisingly important part of gaming. Sometimes, this
just means a selection of familiar hits to accompany our music games, but every
so often, a game will use licensed tracks to careful, brilliant effect – and in
the process, will expose legions of gamers to music they might never have heard
What follows are the games and franchises that have been the most
influential in bringing strange and terrifying new musical styles to gamers’
ears – and in the interest of making this our most self-indulgent Top 7 since that other one, we’ve
asked a handful of our editors to explain what made each one important to them
While the App Store doesn't typically follow the same
kind of end-of-year release barrage that we see from retail games, the late
months do tend to offer some notable iPad and iPhone game experiences. Case in
point: this week's slate of iPad games is one of the slickest we've covered to
date. From the online multiplayer thrills of first-person shooter Modern Combat
3: Fallen Nation to the...
Be honest: you didn't know what to think when Telltale announced that they were making a Jurassic Park game. What would it be, a funny point-and-click adventure? A first-person shooter? How could the Jurassic Park experience be translated into a videogame by the people who made Sam & Max games? If you're still confused you should check out the Full Access Preview we did with some of the games' developers, which gives a good look into what you can expect from the game when it releases later this month...
We talk Uncharted 3, GTA V trailer reveal, and playable ghosts...
November is traditionally the busiest month of the holiday season, but this November is insane even by those standards. If you had any lingering doubts about the stacked zaniness of the holiday release schedule, just look at the madness over the next few pages, and realize that those are just the games we thought you’d be interested in. Hang on to your wallets, it's about to get rough...
they’ve advanced menacingly toward our camera lenses, hidden their faces when
we look at them or just sort of hovered aimlessly, ghosts have been a semi-constant
threat in videogames almost since the medium was invented. One of the great
things about games, however, is that they’re a way to explore unusual
viewpoints – and every once in a while, they give us a chance to see through
the eyes of these undead phantoms, and find out what it’s like to flit
insubstantially through an earthly plane that’s perpetually, almost comically
afraid of us.
a handful of games have actually offered a chance to see things from the proverbial
Other Side, but these are our favorites...
A few months ago we had this idea to make a “Skeletons of Street
Fighter” feature. Street Fighter IV hype was asploding across the webs
(GamesRadar included) and we felt there was no better time to excuse a barrage of boney bastards across the site.
Then we thought, “why stop with Street Fighter?” There’ve got to be a
billion goddam skeletons creeping through virtual graveyards just
begging to have their toothy visage slapped on the immortal internet.
Who are we to deny them such a privilege? So, without further yammering,
we present, just in time for Halloween (y Dia de los Muertos), the
biggest batch of skelleys you’ve ever seen...
