If you want to keep tabs on all the biggest news from Tokyo Game Show, which kicked off proper today, GamesRadar will be bringing you updates this weekend direct from Japan, so you don't have to miss out on a thing.
We've already delivered news from the Microsoft and Sony conferences, as well as spoiling you with an avalanche of PS3 sweetness, including a thrilling Metal Gear Solid movie, a delightful first look at Devil May Cry 4 and a selection of sassy Ridge Racer 7
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.
Insect army attacks Activision
These days, everybody sues
We all know Ubisoft is planning big things for Wii (what with a whole slew of games coming out), but today the company made good on its promise by revealing first-person shooter Far Cry
Actual info on this latest installment of the button-mashing Samurai Warriors series is still pretty scarce, but our crop of new images tells us just enough. Rather than running around ancient Japan in a third-person view, chopping away hordes of enemy soldiers for hours at a time, you'll be running around ancient Japan in a first-person view, chopping away hordes of enemy soldiers for hours at a

As if Sega working with Nintendo wasn't enough of a culture-shock, recent news suggests we may be seeing Rockstar and Nintendo together at last, with the possibility of Wii GTA titles.
"We're reaching out to every publisher, frankly every day. I'll be spending some time later today with the folks over at Take Two who own Rockstar to see what type of support they can give our console," Nintendo of America's president, Reggie Fils-Aime, told MTV. "The fact is there
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
When mega-publisher Activision secured the rights to the Guitar Hero franchise, we all expected it to ditch this pesky PS2-exclusitivity business. Well, now that's happened. Beginning next year, the fret-crunching rock series will hit several platforms, the most likely of which will be Xbox 360. Yearly track list updates are also on the horizon.
Right now Activision and its publisher buddy RedOctane aren't saying precisely which systems Hero will appear on (or when), but given its incredible
While at Tecmo headquarters in Tokyo today, we were able to catch a glimpse of the final Wii hardware as well as getting the chance to use the controller.
During a demo of Super Swing Golf - we'll bring you more on the game later - we were able to check out the final Wii debug hardware which is being used by developers to prepare games for the system.
We were also able to use the final Wii controller, which we found exceptionally sensitive to all movements when we played Super Swing Golf.
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.
Today we've got three new Marvel: Ultimate Alliance videos to share. That makes 11 so far if our counting abilities are to be believed. Then we realize that the game has 20 playable characters and more than 140 cameos - could they all be getting their own special videos? Does the internet have enough space left to contain all this
