Men killing men in videogames is as commonplace as fortuitously placed exploding barrels. Murder. Death. Violence. It's our staple diet. Almost impossible to find, however, is the act of two men sharing the gentle warmth of a kiss. Why do games shun the tenderness of man, yet celebrate his atrocities...?

GamesRadar has been given exclusive access to an unseen level of the remake of Lara's PSone classic Tomb Raider, and later in the week we'll be bringing you world exclusive screens of the huge Egypt level and explaining how it compares to the original version.
In the run up to this first look, we've got a massive three part interview with TR: Anniversary developer Crystal Dynamics in which we'll find out how much they've increased the size of the T-Rex, why they're altered Lara's
Spider-Man 3's got a lot to live up to. Even after the three years since Spider-Man 2 was released, it has yet to be bettered as the benchmark for how to make a superhero game. No one's offered the same sense of freedom. No one's managed to capture the essence of the hero they're trying to copy and, more importantly, no one has managed to make a game that's anywhere near as much fun as Spider-Man 2 was. This May, though, all that's about to change - as Treyarch, the guys who amazed us way back
We got a chance to chat with Greg John, the producer at Treyarch in charge of making sure Spider-Man 3 turns out to be a winner. Here's what he had to say...
Can you tell us a bit more about how the black suit works in the game? Can you choose to wear it whenever you like to give your abilities an extra boost? How will using Spider-Man's black suit differ from controlling Venom in Ultimate Spider-Man?
John: We started developing the black-suited Spider-Man by making a solid, fun base with the

Today we take a look at the different costumes Peter Parker masquerades in, as well as the foes hell be facing in Spider-Man 3. It seems as though “Black" is the new “Red,” cuz apparently that basic suit is old and busted. Say hello to the brand-new dark and mysterious Spidey; complete with extra angst. Hes gonna need all that anger when he faces his biggest adversaries yet; a rival photographer, his former best friend and the man that may have killed his uncle. Read on:
Welcome to Part 2 of our Tomb Raider Anniversary coverage. Crystal Dynamics game designer Jason Botta is ready to talk us through the changes the team has made to one of the original Tomb Raider's most memorable levels - the Lost Valley. Bring your dino-hunting hat...
How has the Lost Valley changed from the original game?
Actually in the original game it didn't really work - it was actually supposed to be a valley with the open sky above but, because of the limitations of the hardware, lots
1. The Basics: Weapons
Your primary weapon. These blades give you strength both up close and from a distance, and that's worth bearing in mind when fighting larger creatures. Square performs a quick horizontal attack, Triangle a hard vertical hit. Hold down triangle to flip your enemies skyward to continue your combos in midair.
You can upgrade it up to a maximum level of five, and we strongly recommend you do that as soon as possible because it gives you a more powerful

At last, we'll decide which FF delivered in the best possible ways. Some games get one thing totally right but then falter elsewhere - we'll lay down the law by saying which reigns supreme. Are you ready?
5. Final Fantasy V
Thanks to a recent re-release on the GBA, this game may finally get the respect it deserves in the US. Though it has one of the weakest stories in the entire series, particularly sandwiched between the melodramatic IV and VI, the gameplay is among the best. The Job System
