Nobody's perfect. Even the best of the best can run off the rails, and that includes many of the most reputable companies and individuals that have been involved in the games industry. They'd rather focus on their successes, of course, and most of the time they'll try to lock their mishaps away in the closet, hoping they will never be dragged out into the public eye again.

Street racing fans rejoice: this new trailer (below) and a batch of screenshots show some achingly fast looking, customized-to-the-wipers, adorned-in-decals automobiles from the newly announced Need for Speed ProStreet.
As the title suggests, street racing will be the order of the day, while pimping your ride promises to be an even bigger factor than in previous games. Indeed, prangs, smashes and collisions will apparently all leave their mark - be it a dent, scratch or crumpled panel - so

Heard of Naruto? If not, you might want to educate yourself with these new shots of the Xbox 360 cel-shaded adventure. Or, you could track down the TV show, but does that let you perform Naruto's air-ninja l33t skills? No, thought not.
With its wonderfully bright visuals, Naruto is a perfect antidote to any over-serious, over-Gothic battler - we're looking at you, BloodRayne - and ought to provide fun times and excitement on 360 later this year, as well as offering two

In the coming months GamesRadar will be undergoing a number of significant changes - most notably the way it looks and the way you find your way around the site. The changes we've made so far (which are still in a development phase) are very exciting and will start to appear later in the year, but the first stage is our new naviagation bar across the top of the page.
Previously, this was in a beta test phase - but now it's ready for a proper public going over and we'd like

Of course, man and beast also share an attachment in many videogames, although the foundation of the companionship is usually built on something far more interesting than our own
