Say goodbye to this page in, like, two days
Some dude has done something very, very cool - put a playable NES emulator and plenty of games online. vNES, the Virtual Nintendo Entertainment System (with 395 games, the site proclaims) requires only a web browser, keyboard, and Java (the site will clue you in if you don't know what the deal is) and you're off, playing anything from ultra-classic Super Mario Bros. to biblical atrocity Sunday Funday.
Problem: Nintendo is going to smack this one
The latest storming entry for the PC multiplayer shooter series Battlefield is out next week, and to keep your trigger fingers itching until then, hit the Movies tab above for two new clips.
The first is a brief-but-brutal demonstration of probably the most satisfying new addition: the great stomping Battlewalkers. You'll soon learn that while they bristle with firepower, their towering height makes them ripe
PS3 reserves = tomorrow
Sleuths over at NeoGAF have sussed out that GameStop/EB Games is opening preorders for the PlayStation 3 tomorrow, when stores open. Want a system? Better hustle over to your local shop before it opens tomorrow. Word on the street is that each store will get eight... but will allow employees to buy two of them. So six it is. Better go to bed early tonight.
Get a 360 for cheap! Or don't! Or do!
Well, if you don't want a PS3...
The Consumerist posted a spiffy deal,
Every Friday, Next Generation prints up This Week in Japan, in which intrepid Tokyo explorer Tim Rogers flips through an issue of popular gaming mag Famitsu and otherwise burbles about the fortunes of the Xbox 360 in Japan and other things. Today's post is particularly nice, though, because it has a picture of the incredibly sweet Blue Dragon faceplate Microsoft is packing in with the limited edition of the game in Japan this December.
We got a new video in
The Vede and gang at PC Gamer rock out with their podcast out - the 52nd one, to be exact.
In it, they speculate on the value of the upcoming Collectors Edition of the World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade expansion; give a rundown of the killer demos due out this weekend; poke fun at the new WoW "dating" service, World of Whorecraft; and even answer some reader questions.
You can send in your own questions to the Vede and crew by following the instructions here.

Last night's ceremony for the Videogame BAFTA awards saw multiple winners in the absence of a GTA title to scoff the lot - with double wins for PS2 giant-killer Shadow of the Colossus, handheld joyfest LocoRoco on PSP and multiplatform Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter.
Colossus scooped the Artistic Achievement and Best Action and Adventure Game awards, while LocoRoco won Best Children's Game (we're already writing a strongly worded letter of complaint) and Best Game
Not work safe
We mean it - this site is not work safe. But it might be worth the trip: pictures of hotties getting it on with classic hardware. It's a calendar, actually. Its title, subtle as can be? Nerdcore. We see a Power Glove and a Game Boy Color... and a few other bits of hardware that we usually don't talk about on GamesRadar. If you want to see blurred-out versions, why not make friends with Nerdcore on MySpace...? The page has rainbow glitter text, of course. According to it, Nerdcore

Championship Manager 2007, the newest instalment of the football management series, will feature an officially licensed in-game version of ProZone, the incredibly detailed match analysis software used by professional managers such as England coach Steve McClaren and Arsenal's Arsene Wenger.
We recently had a chance to go hands-on with the latest Champ Man - look out for our preview soon - and already the ProZone system has boggled our brains with tactical

The Burning Crusade, the upcoming expansion pack for World of Warcraft, will also be released in a Collector's Edition loaded with goodies, developer Blizzard has just revealed.
Along with the usual bonus materials such as an art book, map and making-of DVD are the real wallet-tuggers. First is an exclusive in-game pet, the Netherwhelp, which will only be available to purchasers of the Collector's Edition (like the Mini-Diablo and Panda from the original special
Pokemon the conqueror
Next Generation reports that in just four days, the latest Pokemon game - Pokemon Diamond and Pearl - has sold 1.58 million copies in Japan, instantly becoming the fastest-selling DS game ever. Is anyone surprised? Nope. Nintendo sure isn't, or it wouldn't have printed over and a million and a half copies for the first shipment. The scary thing about the DS has always been how popular it was before Pokemon came out. Now that it's out... the DS is a terror that stalks in
