Everyone knew that Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots was going to set the PS3 on fire at E3. But nobody realized that Kojima Productions had something else hiding in the shadows, ready to strike. Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops is set to turn your PSP into an online and offline battleground with the stealth action you'd expect from the storied series.

Will there ever be a point where we all just stop caring about these damn movies? You know you're going to suck it up and by the original trilogy on DVD this fall... which means LEGO Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy is probably on your shopping list too.
Weve got four new screens of the destructible, rebuild-able tikes from the game, so please, feel free to hit the images tab up above to check them
We got some curious footage of the Rayman development team apparently under siege by nefarious rabbits - or rather, "rabbids." We'd heard that Rayman Raving Rabbids was about bunnies wreaking havoc on the Rayman world, but we had no idea that they had escaped the development environment to harass real, flesh-and-blood people in France.
We've picked up a few new screens of these hateful hares in their "natural" digital environment (which Ubisoft has confirmed is Wii along with "current and
This year's Electronic Entertainment Expo held more than its share of surprises - however, there are few in this year's Game Critics Award nominee list, released today. We're not sure how Heavenly Sword ended up in the Fighting game category when God of War II is Action/Adventure (the GamesRadar US ballot had them both in A/A), but overall, this is an excellent list of this year's best of the best of the best - at least at this point in their development cycles.

As fast and frenzied as Tekken is, the one-on-one fighting is always accompanied by some unrelated minigame. If you spent any time with Tekken 3 all those years ago, you'll instantly recognize the Bowling minigame - and it's making a return in the PSP-exclusive Dark Resurrection.
When you're done pounding the 35 combatants into the ground, you'll be able to indulge in the simple bowling minigame solo or with friends, using two meters to gauge how hard you're throwing and how much spin is on

It's official: the unbridled success of prime-time TV show Lost is slated to spread to consoles, handhelds, and Windows in 2007. No longer will we only be able to interact with the bizarre tribulations of our favorite mysterious island-dwellers (sorry, Survivor) by muddling about the Lost websites. Attempting to capture the multifaceted, character-driven plot of the television show, developer Ubisoft Montreal is looking forward to the challenging task of adapting it to the video game
GamesRadar's more studious, business-focused sibling Next Generation (www.next-gen.biz) has been kind enough to remind us what games we're all slavering to dash into stores and pick up this week. We recommend checking out the NextGen shopping list by clicking here (it'll open in a new window).
However, we'd also suggest you should wait until later this week, when you've read GamesRadar's full-sized reviews of each game before slapping down your hard-earned mad money on any particular title.
