We know you can get all the details you need on Smackdown vs. Raw 2008 just by reading our info-packed first look at the game. This article has everything you want to know, packed into one spot - just click over and drink in the pure power.
But wrestling is nothing without the personality of its superstars. That's why we sent our man Justin Leeper into the field armed with a cameraman and a microphone to cover the annual Superstar Challenge, where WWE wrestlers square off in Smackdown vs. Raw
THQ is gearing up to unleash its latest body-slamming brawler, WWE SmackDown! vs. Raw 2008, for Wii, PS3, 360, PS2 and handhelds DS and PSP. We also have the first screens of the amazingly detailed wrestlers. So real that we can't tell if they're overacting or really hurt.
Bringing the game into the next generation, THQ is incorporating new Struggle Submission and Superstar Fighting Style systems, although specifically what this means for gameplay is yet to be
The brilliant minds over at THQ clearly don't have enough to do - either that, or they've been staying up way too late and getting far too little sleep. How else does one explain the fact that they've randomly sent over this video of a created character who looks remarkably like Donald Trump beating the hair gel out of a Vince McMahon lookalike.

All you role players and Japanophiles out there have something to get excited about this week, besides the vernal equinox.

Dungeon Maker: Hunting Ground (PSP)
Imagine a bizarre cross-breeding of Diablo and Viva Pinata, and you've got a good idea of what to expect from Dungeon Maker. As the Architect, you
Let the haters and the old ladies complain about how those newfangled video computer games teach us to be killers; we've always taken the view that violent games are a pressure valve for blowing off steam in a harmless way. Don't believe it? Play something fierce and bloody the next time you're in a really bad mood, and then try telling us you didn't feel better afterward.
But why stop there? If games can keep you from climbing a clock tower and expressing your inner pain in the form of

Those discarded PS2 Buzz controllers have another outlet with Who Wants to be a Millionaire? Party Edition, which offers some virtual money making madness alongside three buddies. Hit the images tab above to see more shots from this Chris Tarrant-less quiz
A trio of trademark applications have appeared in Japan rekindling hope that the Katamari series may make a return. For last month developer Namco Bandai registered three new names: Beautiful Katamari Damacy, Katamari Damacy Tres Bien and Katamari Damacy-kun.
And while our hopes have been raised again, the names can't be taken as proof of the existence of new games because applications can also cover potential TV shows, movies, fluffy dolls, sweets and just about anything
We at GamesRadar value you, our dear readers, and we know how much you folks freak out about the WWE. So, we decided to give you a special treat by capturing all the intro videos for all of the major wrestlers from the upcoming WWE Smackdown! vs RAW 2007 (the dudes that publisher THQ would give us the okay for, anyway) and post them up here for you to download and enjoy on your iPod or PSP (just right click the name and choose "save as"). We'll be updating this list daily until they're all up,
THQ has released the first PlayStation 2 shots of WWE SmackDown! vs RAW 2007 and in the process has confirmed two new superstars for the game's roster.
Before these two shots (hit the Images tab above to see them) appeared, the only screens available were generic next-gen shots designed to show off the incredible detail we should expect from the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.

2006 World Cup: The final
Italy vs France
The 2006 World Cup final starts off cautiously with both teams trying to get their passing rhythm going, but it's Italy who gets there first with Totti at the centre of every move.
