Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops is the first handheld MGS to offer the true 3D stealth action we love about the series, and this trailer confirms that it's shaping up to be one of PSP's best games when it launches next year. Click the movies tab above to see what we mean.
The Portable Ops story follows on from MGS3: Snake Eater and the trailer shows some exciting moments from the story, including Naked Snake's (that's Big Boss) first meeting with series legend Roy
You already know that your wallet isn't going to survive November 17, 2006 - but what about your noggin? Our beloved sister publication of all things PlayStation, PSM, has a must-see video survival guide to getting home in one piece. That is, if you are lucky enough to score a white-hot slice of gaming nirvana - otherwise known as the PlayStation 3.
PSM even brought in a "Security Expert" for the occasion. Well, okay, it's GamesRadar's own PC editor Josh LaTendresse, but apparently he's former
Even if you've played through LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, chances are good that you've missed something. We're not talking minikits or unlockable rooms - we're more about the in-jokes, unexpected events and laugh-out-loud moments packed into the game. We've played through the whole game and found our favorite giggle points and surprises - hit that Movies tab above then sit back and smile. May the farce be with
Go, go, Tokyo
Tokyo Game Show is revving up, and GamesRadar is there, chomping on sushi, stomping on buildings, and trying to see what the original pink Power Ranger looks like behind the mask. We're also playing the crap out of everything we can, so check our TGS landing page for all the good stuff. We'll be updating over the weekend as well, so don't take a day off from checking just because the morning cartoons are better.

Far Cry 2, a next-gen Prince of Persia game, Splinter Cell 5: Conviction and a Far Cry PSP title have all been accidentally revealed this morning in a spectacular gaff by Ubisoft. A giant batch of images was downloaded from Ubisoft's own network, containing revealing artwork and images from a slew of unannounced games.
The secret shots also shed light on other games we already knew about, like Assassin's Creed. One screenshot taken from the medieval murder game shows
Nintendo throws parties for "normals"
In what has been elected today's strangest news story, we find ourselves directing you to some mom's blog. Apparently, Nintendo boss Satoru Iwata is so convinced that selling the Wii is like selling cosmetics that he's adopting Avon's business model - Nintendo is now going door-to-door, showing its Wii to any non-gamer who will let it into their living room and invite the neighborhood.
So, yeah. Some suburban soccer-madre and her brood have logged more
We've done our best to try to convince you of the ultimate supremacy of LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy, but, as it turns out, the world either has no need of our advice or takes it very seriously. Selling 1.1 million copies (or "units" as industry pundits call them) in its very first week of being available to the masses, LEGO Star Wars II has cemented the value of family friendly titles in this blood-soaked, violence-mongering industry.
Of course, it helps that the game is
GamesRadar meets Associated Press - and looks good
GamesRadar regulars also reading "legitmate" news sites - you know, the ones that don't know jack squat about games and can't seem to decide whether games are turning us all into murderers or rapists - might have noticed a familiar face in recent, Wii-related news stories. Well, familiar to us, at least. GamesRadar's own Nintendo Editor Brett Elston is the man shown playing Wii in stories like this one, peculiar hairstyle and all.

A new run of the Game On exhibition - the interactive (that is, playable) history of videogames that first ran back in 2002 at London's Barbican - will be opening on 21 October at London's Science Museum.
Now graciously sponsored by Nintendo, despite featuring many of its competitors, this new-and-improved Game On will allow you to get an eyeful of the whopping great machine (no, not a PS3) that ran the world's very first videogame, before carrying onwards through

The PSone's PaRappa the Rapper - the game that started the rhythm-action genre party in the West - will be coming to PSP, according to Sony Japan's official software site.
Like PSP's recent return concert of Gitaroo-Man, PaRappa will be a port of the original game rather than an all-new title, although there's the possibility of bonus content. However, with PaRappa's original developer now sadly moved on from the adventures of lyrical 2D dogs to Tamagotchi on DS, we'd
