This week's hottest new releases

GR's companion site reveals how it's spending its allowance

GamesRadar's more studious, business-focused sibling Next Generation ( 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 outthe NextGenshopping list by clickinghere(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 reviewsof each game before slapping down your hard-earned mad money on any particular title. Just in case something other than Jaws Unleashed smells like fish.In the meantime, feel free to check out more of both NextGen and GamesRadar, and see just how clever and well-informed you can become.

I was the founding Executive Editor/Editor in Chief here at GR, charged with making sure we published great stories every day without burning down the building or getting sued. Which isn't nearly as easy as you might imagine. I don't work for GR any longer, but I still come here - why wouldn't I? It's awesome. I'm a fairly average person who has nursed an above average love of video games since I first played Pong just over 30 years ago. I entered the games journalism world as a freelancer and have since been on staff at the magazines Next Generation and PSM before coming over to GamesRadar. Outside of gaming, I also love music (especially classic metal and hard rock), my lovely wife, my pet pig Bacon, Japanese monster movies, and my dented, now dearly departed '89 Ranger pickup truck. I pray sincerely. I cheer for the Bears, Bulls, and White Sox. And behind Tyler Nagata, I am probably the GR staffer least likely to get arrested... again.
