Quick heads-up for all our game-loving, list-loving readers - next week we'll be presenting for your pleasure the big daddy of all gaming lists: GamesRadar's 101 greatest gaming moments.
It's big, it's beautiful, it's an exhaustive collection of all those heart-stopping, jaw-dropping, spine-tingling, belly-laughing, toe-curling, head-scratching and even tear-jerking moments in games from the last 10 years that have reminded us that gaming is the best thing in the world
In today's newly released teaser trailer, Electronic Arts has announced a new installment of the NBA Street series - and that's about it. The video makes a point that everyday people need relatable heroes and that idolized hero should be a basketball superstar who also stays true to his roots. Street fans'll just be happy to see the urban/aggressive NBA counterpart return.
Right now, the game's being called, simply, NBA Street, which is sure to cause all kinds of fun Google and Ebay moments
The flood of Naruto games hitting stores this year won't let up anytime soon, as publisher Namco Bandai announced today that the orange-clad ninja-in-training will finally take center stage in an action game to be released this winter. Arriving hot on the heels of Naruto's third fighting game (Clash of Ninja 2, due out next month), Naruto: Uzumaki Chronicles will put players in Naruto's shoes as he fends off fellow students and engages in "large-scale ninja combat."
EA Sports dropped dual videos on us today featuring more puck play from NHL 07. Each teaser focuses on a team, either the St. Louis Blues or the Florida Panthers, and you can clearly make out #12 Olli Jokinen in the Florida video. Whether or not you'll be able to bury the business end of your hockey stick in an opponent's neck remains to be seen, but watch the videos (by clicking on the movies tab above) and decide for yourself if anything qualifies as high sticking.
When a new EA Sports title launches, it's usually one of the biggest games to hit that month, if not the entire year. So it's a little strange to us that all there is to show of NHL 07 are three screens and a brief trailer showcasing Moscow-born Alexander Ovechkin murderatin' fools on the ice. Regardless, we've got them ready for your prying eyes. Hit up the images tab for screens and then skate over to the movies icon for all the Ovechkin you can take.
There's hardly a rim left to tweak in the Need for Speed universe, so perhaps that's why the series is once again wandering into the wilderness in search of new thrills. EA's newly announced Need for Speed Carbon slams you onto perilous canyon roads that twist and turn through dusty, gusty outdoor settings, but don't worry, you'll still be managing a pimped-out runnin'

While the sound of E3 might still be ringing in our ears, the show is over, the stands have been dismantled and the cleaners are performing the unenviable task of cleaning up the mess left by thousands of men (and a few women).
With bleary eyes and saturated synapses, we've compiled a list of our top 20 E3 2006 stories. Not only do we urge you to peruse the fine collection of our most significant show moments listed below, we should also remind you that you can sift
The publisher name may have changed slightly (what with the Namco-Bandai combo), but Bandai's fevered output of anime-licensed fighting games hasn't slowed one bit. That being said, the latest Naruto offering will enjoy a surprising bit of innovation - or at the very least, modification - over the endless, cookie-cutter, anime-inspired brawlers Bandais been releasing for the past few years.
The 12-character lineup will obviously still feature a handful of your favorite series mainstays
Encapsulating all of the bluster and fanfare of the pigskin parade that is NCAA football, EA has released new screens of NCAA Football 07. This year's enhancements focus around the new momentum system, which challenges teams to maintain their pushes with big plays, defensive stops and special teams. Turning the tide of a game is what it's all about, and players must use every tactic in their arsenal to keep their winning inertia
