Like most cheat sites, CheatPlanet is driven by user submissions. While most of the submissions contain immensely valuable cheats and hints (and we love you for submitting them), some of them are total crap. Total, complete, utter, ridiculous crap. And yeah, its someones job to wade through this pool of randomly typed characters, 1337 speak, and profanity to rescue the useful game knowledge floating around beneath the surface.
To get to the point: occasionally this pool reveals a true gem - a
The pioneer - Metal Gear Solid | 1998 | PS1
Hiding under a cardboard box. That was Hideo Kojima's answer to the prevailing tide of titles that focused on blasting seven shades of excrement out of anything that had the misfortune of moving. But this pedestrian activity was little short of revolutionary. MGS brought us strategy elements both previously untested in the US and in 3D, favoring concealment rather than confrontation at all times, however you could manage it. Using cigs to reveal laser
We'll just go ahead and cut to the chase for those of you who've been following the development of Manhunt 2: we've seen the infamous bit where a guy gets his testicles and one of his vertebrae removed by a pair of wire cutters, and yes, it's nasty. Not as nasty as the scene playing out in your head right now - the actual gore is limited to spraying blood and horrible fleshy wrenching noises - but nasty nonetheless.
We've also seen a pen broken off in a man's throat, a sex-hotel receptionist
Licensed games have a bad enough reputation, but when they also happen to be movie tie-ins for potential summer blockbusters? Well, that type of game usually falls somewhere between dysentery and an autographed photo of Bob Saget on The List of Things Gamers Would Most Like to Acquire. That is to say, expectations generally arent too high. Fortunately, Transformers: The Game is being developed by Travellers Tales, the very same folks behind the well-received Lego Star Wars titles.
If a man defines himself by his enemies, then Devil May Crys Dante must be borderline schizophrenic. One minute hes fighting hells lava-spewing minions - the next hes shooting a giant canary on a pirate ship. Before lunch hes murdering hordes of marionettes - afterwards hes slicing up an orangutan in an abandoned train station. In a world of increasingly humanoid bosses, Devil May Cry takes the grand old tradition of packing some of the most misshapen, misguided and mental bosses possible into
Its not just about making money and swearing at people in The World Is Yours. Building up your reputation is essential, and can be done by spending stupid amounts of money decorating your mansion. Herere some of the best buys.
The milk crate
Reputation points: Zero
Perhaps not the obvious item to pimp your mansion with, but it is free and at the start of the game you should take what you can.
The exploding barrel
Reputation points: Zero
A videogame staple you can
Dont let that furry face fool you. Ratchets back pocket holds more hi-tech gadgets than James Bonds garden shed. Despite the puzzles, the platforms and the slick cutscenes, the Ratchet & Clank games have as much furious action as any PS2 shooter out there. With the series now inbound on PS3, its time to take a look back and reflect on why you should be excited about it. Resistance proved once more that Insomniac can craft imaginative weapons and realize them slickly. Now, with that PS3
Publisher NIS America revealed GrimGrimoire to the world about a month ago, and since then we've spent quite a bit of time getting to know its rules and realms. What we said earlier still stands - it's an RTS at heart, complete with resource-grabbin' underlings and progressively powerful units, but it all takes place from the side, not overhead. So, instead of zooming out to see the whole battlefield or scanning a large area, you scroll around a 2D landscape in search of your objectives.
We're going to be completely honest about this. When we saw the name Crash of the Titans on publisher Sierra's list of upcoming titles, our first thought was of a monster truck car combat game where all the oil-gulping vehicles are named after Greek gods. Upon realizing the emphasis was on crash and not titans, our entire mood slipped a little. The guy's not had much luck lately (though arguably better than Sonic's), but after spending a little time with his latest run-and-jumper, it's fair to
The pioneer – GoldenEye 007 | 1997 | N64
Everyones played GoldenEye. If you didnt have it, your neighbor had it. And if they didnt have it you got a paper route until you could afford it. Then you got your friend's route and didnt go back to work. That was how addictive GoldenEye s multiplayer was. There was nothing quite like getting hold of the Golden Gun pistol, cheap as it was, and then making everyone else your bitch. Even on a 4-player split, it ran surprisingly smooth. The host of
