Sadomasochistic cenobites, cannibalism, hooks in flesh, skin-stealing…“Weve got sights to show you,” grinned Pinhead in seminal horror flick Hellraiser - and didnt he just? However, Clive Barker himself has shown us so much more - in his books, his films, his soft toy range and in his games. Well, in Clive Barkers Undying anyway - the others havent been very good. But now hes back with Clive Barkers Jericho, a project hes steering all the way from conception - rather than
Grand Theft Auto. A game series synonymous with death, drugs, carjacking, prostitution, sleaze, ultraviolence, sex and controversy. The tabloids would have you believe that simply playing the game will turn you into some kind of sick, perverted monster... who can barely swim.
We say: look again. There are many reasons why GTA can not only be harmless (when played by responsible adults as the Mature rating implies, we will say that), but can even help you become a better person. Don't believe
Being a serious fan means one thing: Dressing like a fool and parading around in public. To make sure your fellow cosplayers are laughing with you and not at you, heed our advice with our do's and don'ts to dressing like a Star Wars character.
Try to find someone in the Star Wars universe that you actually look like. If you don't look like anyone, be Darth Vader and wear a helmet. Let this guy below with the specs and the goatee act as a warning. He thinks: I look like Anakin. We think:
Today we're in an especially giving mood. Why all the love, you may ask? Well, publisher THQ just had one of them Gamer's Days where entirely too much info was divulged about the games you'll want to play in the next few months. Our crack-team of journalists were deployed to the frontlines to bring you, our dear readers, the best coverage possible from this event. How does the recently announced Conan action game look? Do the fiery daredevil feats of Stuntman: Ignition get your blood
God of War
Kratos is totally bad ass - when have you ever killed a god? And the fact that Aries ate an H-bomb for breakfast that morning really added to the effect. Except, now that Kratos is the new God of War, shouldnt we have to kill him in God of War 2? Whatever, just let us rip the eyeballs out of something and dont make us
The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion
Epic quests need epic endings, and theres not much that's more epic than a giant red thing fighting an oversized golden award trophy. The dragon trophy decimates the Vishnu-armed creature by breathing white stuff on it, and the fate of the world is put in your hands. But the games over, so good luck with
Weve compiled twenty ending videos from some of the hottest games of all time, partially so that we can trash them, but mainly to ruin the experience of earning them legitimately. If youre the type to play three-quarters of the way through a game before being distracted by something more important (like what?), nows your chance to see what you missed, or didnt miss, by being an underachiever.

Are you the kind of inquisitive gamer that likes to try shooting everything with a virtual pulse at least once, just to see what happens? Or maybe you take some guilty pleasure in gunning down gaming's innocent bystanders? Whatever the reason, we all exercise an unnecessarily twitchy trigger finger every now and again, so in recognition of our inner, cold-hearted killer, here's some of the victims of our 'accidental' aggression...

Last week, we brought you a list of popular, classic games... that we despise. But that's easy; for every work of genius, there's a hater (with good arguments.) This week, we're doing something much, much weirder. We've compiled a list of games that range from "totally sucky" to "mostly sucky" that we... well, we love them. A tough task? We agree. That's why we've roped in editors from three other top game publications - PC Gamer, Official Xbox Magazine and PSM to help us out. Hey, they're
These games are classics. They're beloved by millions. The problem? Well, they suck. Don't believe us? Keep reading. Yeah, some had their defenders - even on our staff. But a convincing argument can be made about why each game just doesn't cut it. And that's just what we'll do. Ready? Line 'em up and we'll knock 'em down...
Final Fantasy VIII
Hated by: Nintendo Editor Brett Elston
The entire catalogue of Final Fantasy games is untouchable. We get that. They're all special and unique in their
