While the Pokemon series has been a handheld mainstay for 10 years now, its history on console systems has been rocky at best. Despite its grandiose title and beautiful graphics, Pokemon Battle Revolution is on the road to being just as controversial as its

We're pretty sure that we don't really need to advise you to hunt out games like GTA IV, Halo 3 and Super Mario Galaxy in 2007 - we've got a sneaky feeling that you'll be smart enough to do that without our wise words of professional guidance. Right...?
Instead of pointing you to the blindingly obvious for our forecast of the potentially great games that'll be keeping your digits in shape over the next 12 months, we thought it would be infinitely more useful if we
It's cool to believe in something, to have an undying passion for your hobby. When it comes to gaming, we'll defend our views to the bitter end. But sometimes we all go a little too far, skating a fine line between fan and fanboy. How close are you? Read on...
Step 1 - Swear that system X has no good games. At all.
The self-proclaimed "hardcore" may read up on every game, discuss every game and spout what we try to pass off as authoritative opinions on every game... but none of us actually

Everyone - from little kids to teenage girls and radio DJs - is presently in a furious arm-swinging, remote-flinging frenzy over the sleek white box. So how ironic is it that the "family-friendly" system is also playing host to so many first-person shooters, that most bloody and controversial of all gaming genres?
It may be incongruous but it also makes perfect sense. The Wii-mote screams to be
Did you behave well enough last year for Santa to bring you some new games for Christmas? Stuck on them already? Well, don't worry, we've put together a little something for you to unwrap now - that's right, the best cheats, hints and easter eggs for the top-selling Christmas games. Just hit the tabs on the left for the games you want to know about.
Many of these cheats were sent in by our readers through CheatPlanet.com (thank you kindly) - so why not share your own best cheats and tricks
The Silent Hill series
It's a safe bet that we all play games the same way: lights on, volume at a reasonable level, perhaps other stuff going on in the background as well. For most games, that's totally cool. But there are some that you have not even begun to experience. Yes, some games demand that you completely alter your surroundings and let the mood seep through your skull, soaking every cell in your body with excessive atmosphere.
So, we mined our collective memories and came up with
By way of introduction, every new hardware innovation needs a readymade software demonstration - Super Mario 64 showed us how to use an analog stick, for instance - and Wii Play is designed to introduce the delights of the Wii controller (Japanese players didn't get a free Wii Sports with purchase). It does that by clumping together nine mini-games. And thats it. Simplest game of the year.
Its not quite as limited as it sounds, though. There are all sorts of different control methods here,
After the first shots and details of the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie tie-in were released earlier this week, we shelled out some questions to Ubisoft's acclaimed Montreal Studio (the people behind such top titles as Prince of Persia and Splinter Cell ) to get some more details about what we can expect from its spin on the crime-repelling reptiles.
Nick Harper, TMNT 's creative director, steps up from the sewers to give us some answers...
