Now that the dust has settled on what was the most unique E3 in recent history, we've had a chance to reminisce on the highlights of the show and compile them into one clever video. Sandwiched somewhere between the endless parade of press conferences where publishers trotted out their holiday hopefuls, we stuffed ourselves into taxi after taxi to bring you the latest news as it happened. As E3 struggled to redefine itself and assert its relevance, we toiled night and day posting stories and
Though E3 2007 was a very different show from previous years, it was still overflowing with high-quality games that demand our attention. And what better way to recognize that than with some awards? In fine GamesRadar tradition, we won't be giving out what you expect, of course. Strap in - because Game of the Show is the only one you'll
The internet is probably the greatest invention since sliced bread. While it's lame to utilize an overused cliché to praise the power of the web, we'd like to think that having untold power to look at pr0n, post a blog, stream music and watch old episodes of The X-Files at the same time must come from a pretty damn good invention. Plain white bread it ain't.
And thusly, we've lumped some of our more entertaining findings on this here page. Take a gander and experience the magic that Al
Now that we're almost midway through this gloriously lazy season, you've settled into the groove of either summer school, some lame-ass job or sleeping in until 3pm. But c'mon, we know you're seriously missing the countless hours of free entertainment your second best friend - the internet - provides. We've compiled a few more for your viewing pleasure. Feast your eyes.
Guitar Hero II: Trippolette perfection
Either Jimmy Hendrix has risen from the dead to play Guitar Hero or this fellow has
The new style E3 Media & Business Summit kicks off in Santa Monica later this week and while we're looking forward to the prospect of spending four days talking up, slacking off, gawping at and - yes - even playing video games. As invited attendees, we're keeping our excitement in check and approaching the show with a degree of reservation.
Why? Well, no one - including the peeps dealing with the sprawling shebang's logistics - can really have any idea of what it's going to be like until the
We sat down for a few moments with Greg LoPiccolo, the Vice President of Product Development at Harmonix on all things Rock Band. Here's what he had to say:
Can you name a few of the artists and songs that you've managed to sign up so far?
LoPiccolo: One of the fun challenges of working on Rock Band is getting to pick songs that showcase great sounds for every player in the band. Each song we've picked for the game has great drums, great bass and guitar parts, and great vocals - so everyone
Detective Conan brings one of Japans most popular anime series to Wii this month - peep the review here. And weve already had the obvious fighting games based on Naruto and Bleach, as well as a swashbuckling adventures with the pirates of the popular One Piece and, uh, a Fist of the North Star pachinko game.
These games got us thinking about other classic pieces of Japanese animation that wed love to see in videogame form, and how they might work. Whether or not any of them ever turn up, its
In general, we think you've got pretty good taste in games. You've made massive successes of stellar franchises like Ratchet & Clank, The Elder Scrolls and Katamari Damacy. You tend to like the things we like, and that's part of why we enjoy writing for you and telling you about all the cool games we think you'll get excited about playing.
Sometimes, though, you ignore our advice, which breaks our hearts a little. It's bad enough when you do it by passing up kickass experiences like Okami or
Alma - as seen in F.E.A.R. and F.E.A.R.: Extraction Point
Most action games owe a debt to Hollywood, but this scary little girl with long black hair was a particularly blatant borrowing from Japanese horror. Still, a spectral tween who could murder entire platoons of crack soldiers in the blink of an eye, and a foe that can never be defeated? Damn.
Anna Navarre - as seen in Deus Ex
Deus Exs supporting cast was full of great characters, but fellow cyborg agent Anna was the standout. Initial
The view from above always makes the most sense. With Medal of Honor: Airborne, industry veteran Patrick Gilmore has looked back over years of virtual war to figure out how, in this golden age of AI and physics, EAs troubled series can reinvent itself. He could be the ideal candidate for the job. Hes associated as much with Disney as D-Day, having produced over a dozen games starring Mickey and co, he brings a fresh perspective to a series thats long been considered stale. And despite Airbornes
