With animation playing a bigger role in Tony Hawk's Project 8 than any previous title, developer Neversoft has been motion-capturing different stances from its featured skaters - as you can see in this session with Paul 'P-Rod' Rodriguez by grinding up to the Movies tab.
Obviously starry-eyed and bushy-haired at the chance to be in a Tony Hawk title, Rodriguez notes that the actual trick motions in previous skating titles were a little lacking. With Project 8 enabling you to take control of

These brand new screens for Metal Gear Solid 4: The Guns of the Patriots give us an excellent view of Solid Snake's incredible camouflage skills, thanks to his super-special octo-cam suit.
The chameleonic gadget changes colour to match Snake's surroundings and helps you disappear in plain sight. Hit the images tab for even more.
Snake's octo-cam is so impressive we struggled to pick him out in some of these images. Look closely and you'll also see that in certain shots

Here's a question. Who has the more terrifying fixed plastic grin: Burger King or Brooke Burke?
You won't have to wonder for long, because for a mere $3.99 you can suffer through games starring both of them. Starting November 19, Burger King will be offering up a slate of games - playable on any Xbox or Xbox 360 - alongside the purchase of any value meal.
The best possible idea - Burger King vs King of All Cosmos - is, sadly, not happening. No, we're getting Pocketbike Racer
Now that we're out of the summer doldrums, game releases are picking up speed with each passing day. This week alone there are 20 or so new titles on the shelf, compared to, oh, five or so during June and July. Next Gen, our companion site-at-arms, has sifted through the upcoming tidal wave of releases and settled on 45 upper-deck games you have to play. That should give you an idea of how many games there'll be total, if 45 is the "must-have" list.
Head here for the complete list, hitting all

PSM3, the UK's best selling unofficial PS3 mag and good buddies of GamesRadar, was treated to a hands-on with a real, actual, working PlayStation 3 recently and has plenty to show for it.
Head on over to the PSM3 blog site and you can see the mag team kick-starting the console - complete with a peek of PS3's start-up interface - and boot up mud-racer MotorStorm.
There're plenty of pics too, proving that MotorStorm looks much snazzier than when we last saw it at E3 in

The editors we sent to this year's Tokyo Game Show might have been fresh off a plane and still reeking of jetlag when they came back to the office, but that didn't stop us from dragging them into a bright room and fixing our cameras on them. Why? To collect their raw thoughts on what they'd just spent the last week seeing, of
We know corporate-level trash talking has to be done - Microsoft faces big-time competition - but just saying something doesn't make it true. Blu-ray will help the PS3 have better games; it's a fact. By the same token, though Phil Spencer of Microsoft Game Studios might pretend that the Nintendo Wii won't offer new types of gaming, he isn't kidding anyone.
Asinine quote of the day: "I don't think the promise of a new input device means a new kind of game." Right, Phil...
Our latest trailer spot for Stranglehold focuses on shooting up the environments as much as the baddies, with all the game's levels waiting to explode in a shower of sparks and plaster dust when riddled with bullets.
As we'd expected from the developer of the physics-crazy Psi-Ops, it's not all for effect. Instead of applying force to objects with telekinetic power, Inspector Tequila (Chow Yun-Fat) can do it the old-fashioned way with both barrels of a shotgun, toppling scenery on to
A gruesome new trailer and a batch of action shots have surfaced for The Darkness, the comic book inspired, next-gen shooter that spices up the blasting with an array of savage demonic powers.
If you're squeamish, we suggest you don't hit that Movies tab above to see the footage, which features cursed hero Jackie Estacado unleashing his dark skills against a gang of

Another platoon of screens from the console-only Call of Duty 3 has emerged from Microsoft's X06 media blowout - hit the images tab for some brooding warfront shots of US and German troops in the Normandy mud. Or hit the movie tab to see a superb new movie.
We were quite taken with the game when we played it earlier this month - no other WWII game brings out that heart-in-mouth sensation quite like Call of Duty and, even with a different developer working on this third
