Mass Effect 3. Need we say more? Well, with a strong month ahead - including new entries in franchises like Street Fighter, Resident Evil and Ninja Gaiden - you may find yourself tempted by more than just Commander Shepard’s final fight to save the galaxy. A look at all 40 of March’s biggest game releases…
Every week GamesRadar receives more game trailers than the internet can be expected to hold, so in those seven days some people might tragically miss a few of these new videos. That's why we've collected them into one new video, remixed for your pleasure...
Once again, we begin our yearly celebration of all things great in gaming, the Platinum Chalices. For
our sixth annual awards event, though, we’re doing things a little differently, posting the Chalices in three parts. So while you can still
expect to see our “normal” Chalices later in the day, as well as our Game of
the Year, we’re starting today off with our special and console-exclusive
awards. If a game deserved a nod for doing something unique this year, or stood out as
the best title to only be available on one platform, you’ll find it here.
Be sure to check back later this afternoon, as our Platinum Chalices continue!
It's not easy being a horse, especially a horse during these tough economic
times. Despite the huge federal deficit, massive layoffs, and two wars,
American humans will find the time and money to waste on useless gifts for
friends and family members this holiday season.
Like sheep lined up for the slaughter, they gather in droves to attend Black
Friday sales. There, the humans will procure unsightly sweaters for the nephew
they never see, dresses for the niece too fat to wear them, home appliances for
mother's domestic prison, gift cards for unappreciative sons, and books about
the civil war for the father who stopped loving them years ago. But I
Whatever your opinion about sex in videogames, the simple fact is this: games won’t really be taken seriously as an art form until they can get certain things right, and one of those things is sex. It’s an essential component of film, music, books, paintings and even television, and yet gaming lags sadly behind.
Part of this is because games still haven’t quite shaken their kiddie-toys stigma, but mostly it’s because the rare games that try to get sex right almost never do. The results of their endless efforts tend to range from mildly off-putting to outright mortifying, with varying levels of ugliness and hilarity in between. Maybe someday, we’ll see an in-game love scene that doesn’t make us recoil in horror – but in the meantime, here are 13 that did...
December wasn't exactly rife with game releases. Sure, WoW: Cataclysm made a splash, but most big holiday games came out in November to give Christmas shoppers plenty of time to pick up preferred bundles of digital joy. We all know that many publishers get cold feet during the fall as they see the big boys come stomping in to lay claim to the coveted shopping season, which means a lot of premium titles start to trickle in as soon as the new year has passed. And so we get to January, which is looking up for those who've already blown through those Christmas games and are hungry for more...
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum! Wait, wrong story. Ho ho ho and a bottle of nog! It's a GamesRadar Christmas Carol!
TalkRadar and The GamesRadar Theatre Troupe invite you to put 'e's where they ought not to be and wrap yourself up in a warm Snuggie of Christmas cheer by way of the ghostly story of Ebenezer Scrooge. So put on your headphones, young listener, and sit back in your recliner by a crackling fire while we fill your chambers with the presence of three allegory-prone apparitions, the shriveled heart of a hardcore gamer, and his greatest fear of all - motion controls...
Looking for categories like Best PSP Driving Game? Greatest Achievement in Control Layout, Artistic? Eastern European Developer Most Worth Watching in 2011? Then our end-of-year awards might not be for you.
GamesRadar's Platinum Chalices are different. We're not interested in checking off a massively tedious list of genres, platforms and technical subdivisions… we'd much rather focus on the stuff that makes this hobby, you know, fun. And reward whichever games delivered the most of that stuff.
So if you're looking for the best fan service, most satisfying gore or greatest achievement in old-school kickassery in 2010, you've definitely come to the right celebration. Let's get it started…
If there's one thing videogames have become exceedingly good at, it's forcing tedious, mind-numbing busywork upon unsuspecting gamers. Repetitive and tawdry tasks, or uninspired, frustrating, cut-and-paste missions infest an inexcusable number of games, and it's getting pretty dire.
I'm sick of games making me do the same old shit, and it's about time somebody did something. Nothing solves the world's problems quicker than a sarcastic list column, so join me as I stomp my feet over the miserable chores that videogames keep imposing upon me...
We're not gonna lie – this is a sparse month for games. The biggest publishers are saving their biggest products for September, October and November, leaving August with a very short list to choose from.
Fear not, however, because scattered across the barren wasteland of the next four weeks are some very promising oases of gaming goodness. Some of these titles will be just enough to last through the end of summer, while others have the potential to keep you occupied – and happy – right through the fall, distracting you completely from Call of Halo or Fallout Rising 2...
