Demon slayers, snipers, assassins, and Muppets are just some of the characters you'll find in the first wave of new year releases. Take a peak at your post-holiday gaming selection in our rundown of January 2013's new arrivals...
PODCAST: The biggest release week of 2010?! Red Dead Galaxy 2: The Forgotten Sands of Alan Wake MEGA-Reviewed and much, much more!
It’s a big week for gamers, with Red Dead Redemption and Alan Wake taking center stage; fortunately CheatPlanet’s got some cheat codes for RDR and a guide for Alan Wake’s collectibles. We’ve also got some codes and unlockables for EA’s Skate 3, which are some of the most bizarre we’ve seen in a long time. Expect a Super Mario Galaxy 2 star guide next week in addition to some Lost Planet 2 and Red Dead Redemption guides!
“Is that your profession or pleasure?” Well, when it comes to jobs in games, it’s usually both. Y’see, your average gaming hero’s nine-to-five is a never-ending stream of employed excitement. Acrobatic plumbers who frolic in magical fantasy kingdoms. Archaeologists with pornstar bodies who can dual wield pistols like everyone’s favourite slaphead assassin. And suspiciously buff scientists who routinely save the human race with nothing but a crowbar. They all enjoy incredible careers we mere mortals could only dream of. Of course, if their jobs were a little more true to life, Mario would probably do himself in when he faced his first backed-up toilet…
At E3 this year, we experimented with a new type of video, what we’ve dubbed the “one-shot.” The idea is simple: to capture as much of the thrill and bustle of the show floor as possible in a single 60 second take, closing with a velvet-rope cameo by a famed developer. Let us know what you think – if you like ‘em, we’ll do moar next year!
Gamescom is unquestionably more low profile than E3’s explosive LA shindig. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of reasons to get pumped up for the upcoming event in Cologne. Hell, we can think of, oh, at least 23 examples why you should give a damn about the ‘European E3.’ And they all take the form of potentially amazing games. Below you’ll find a line-up of some of the most exciting titles due to
Way back in January, we did what a lot of other tech and gaming websites do, and published a list of predictions for the then-new year. In this case, we predicted the games that we thought – for a variety of reasons – wouldn’t see the light of day until at least 2010, and published it under the somewhat inflammatory headline No Heavy Rain until 2010?
We don’t make a big deal about it, but we here at GamesRadar actually live several months in the future. It’s pretty cool, although we should warn you that we still won’t have flying cars or laser cats come Christmas – shocker, we know. But we do have review scores for the games you’re most looking forward to playing.
Unlike our beloved Duke, not all games wither and die when they get stuck in development limbo. While the majority of titles that undergo drastic changes or lengthy delays end up performing oral acts on donkey’s groins, some survive the pre-release purgatory smelling of roses. Well, more ‘gameplay that’s not shit’ than roses, really. So without furthing rambling, here’s a bunch of games that survived development hell and lived to be damn decent titles.
If there were a list of Rules for Videogames, the #1 rule would have to be, “Always make cutscenes skippable.” But the number two rule may very well be, “Don't play games based on movies.” It's a truth that's been self-evident rarely without exception ever since ET stunk up the Atari 2600.
But Rule #2's been in for some revision lately, as GoldenEye-shaped aberrations and Butcher Bay-escaping anomalies defy the “movie games are crap” truism. Maybe the way to make a non-terrible adaptation is to hold off until you're sure you have a classic property on your hands. Given movie games’ review history, the simple act of getting them to a stage where people say they’re “well-executed” or “worth the price” is a pretty big step...
