Nothing's perfect. Stare closely enough at anything - even a masterpiece - and you're bound to find flaws sooner or later. They might be small. They might be insignificant. They might not detract from the overall quality of the piece at all...
Except when they really, really do. With these seven games, in fact, you don't need to stare. Their flaws are so huge, so obvious, so frustrating and so effing obnoxious that you can't help but
The summer Olympics are coming up. Bet you didn’t know that, huh? It’s cool - ‘cause Agetec’s got you covered by spiking Women’s Volleyball Championship into your face this August on the PS2. Featuring a slew of easily digestible gameplay modes and Olympic teams, WVC is poised to be a viable alternative to the big name franchise sport sims (read: Madden) hitting late summer.
There's been a lot of talk over the last few years about how videogames need to provoke more of an emotional response from gamers, and of how the technology is gradually allowing developers the freedom to evoke those responses. But in reality, videogames have been tapping into one of our most basic emotions for years: Fear.
Everyday we receive hundreds of cheats submissions from people hoping to get their work (and their names) up on CheatPlanet. Some of these people are stupid. These are the absolute worst submissions we've had all week. Like this excerpt from a cheat you'll find on page two:

If digg, N4G and NeoGaf are any indication, the internet was invented solely for gaming Neanderthals to argue about the console wars. "Framerate" this, "exclusive game" that. "Pixel bump shader fliter proxy triple mipmapping" this, "physics porn" that. It's really quite tiring, isn't it? What if we told you there was a clear and easy way to predict each victor with 90% accuracy - a way to forever silence the incessant forum-vomiting that

The costs are exorbitant, the customer base is fickle and often hostile to newcomers, and putting together a cutting-edge machine means either slapping on a prohibitive price tag or losing hundreds of dollars on every sale. With that in mind, it's no surprise that the history of videogames is littered with forgotten systems that never even had a chance to
“We’re in the era of casual games, and it’s time to say ‘this is for the hardcore gamer’,” says Hideo Kojima, creator of Metal Gear Solid 4. “So it’s really, really important [MSG4] succeeds.” Has he got a point? With budgets spiraling (a decent next-gen title costs anywhere from $20-40 million) companies are becoming more risk-averse, keener on pumping out sure things than trying out new
See if you can guess what game we’re talking about: in the war-torn near future, a supersolider - outfitted in skin-tight armor - wages battle against legions of aliens/other supersoldiers.
