Our favorite Microsoft man-on-the-inside, Major Nelson, released a list of all new, old, Xbox games that the 360 can now play following a small download from Xbox Live. While we at GamesRadar are all about celebrating the gems on the list like Counter Strike, Freaky Flyers, Rogue Trooper and Burnout 3: Takedown, we also can't help but point out the awful titles that appear on the list. Let's face it, if you play Catwoman, Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis, or Over the Hedge on your 360 you should
EA announced today that its enslaving Criterion Games for yet another iteration of the famed car-crushing racer Burnout. In this latest installment (currently called Burnout 5) menus are completely eschewed in favor of an open, seamless city where the only thing that will limit the carnage is your imagination and the structural integrity of your automobile.
Touting the virtues of the next-gen hardware, Criterion exclaims that Burnout 5 will offer the most brutal smashups in the series'
Blood, fire, violence, crazy dames stabbin' people with hooks - that's what we wanna see in our games, so today's batch of Bioshock screenshots make us smile... even if we're kind of revolted at the same time. These screens of the first-person creepfest are specifically labeled as PC shots, but we saw the game running on Xbox 360 at E3, and we'd say they're a fair estimation of what you'll see on both systems. Just hit the Images tab above to see them all.
Bioshock's undersea world features a
Skate fans, take note: The October 2006 issue of Official Xbox Magazine hits newsstands today, complete with a detailed, six-page hands-on report on the Birdman's latest offering, Tony Hawk's Project 8. Built from the ground up for the Xbox 360 and next-gen hardware, one of THP8's biggest innovations is a new mode called Nail the Trick. Bust an ollie and, while airborne, the controller's analog sticks become your skater's feet. Flick them to perform real-time kickflips and spins, then line

The Tony Hawk series is returning to its trick-based roots this November with a new interface that allows players to control each of their skater's legs individually. While the familiar control system still exists in the game, Tony Hawk's Project 8 also features an inventive new Nail the Trick function - and we've had the chance to try it out on Xbox 360.
The mode can be accessed at any point during the game and is initiated by clicking both analogue sticks
When we got our hands on a preview copy of the sandbox-style thug life sim Saints Row, the first thing we wanted to do was create a video for all our readers to enjoy. No problem, said the publisher, but please - don't show any sex or drugs from the game.
Um, okay. We'll simply focus on... other aspects of the game.
Watch our exclusive video now just by clicking the Movies tab above. And remember - just say no!
If there was a way to deliver the latest trailer for next-gen and PC shooter Stranglehold to you by somersaulting over a table in slow motion through a flock of doves, we would, but thankfully you need only click the Movies tab above.
Showing off new areas - including a natural history museum (with scaleable dinosaur skeleton!), a Chinese food market stocked with fruit just waiting to erupt in gunfire and a rapidly disintegrating casino floor - it's not hard to see how this game carries John
Awhile ago, completely talentless and inarticulate German filmmaker Uwe Boll - Alone in the Dark, Bloodrayne, House of the Dead - let fly that he wants critics to put their fists where their mouths are. His genius idea? They'll box against him, on camera, for his latest film. As it's based on the free-for-all idiocy of the Postal games, perhaps the only game series slated for adaptation which is on par with Boll's filmmaking skills, we're expecting a real treat this time. A few
We've got hold of two videos that demonstrate the intensity of action that you can expect from Call of Duty 3, the WWII first-person shooter due for release this November.
Both videos - available on the Movies tab above - show how you'll get assistance and orders from the AI soldiers that fight alongside you. The AI help is one of the game's strengths with you never left to play the super-solider and take on the enemy by yourself - instead there's always the feeling of being part of a combined
Half-Life 2: Episode Two has hit the Leipzig Game Convention in a massive fashion today, with a glut of movies for the game, plus gameplay footage from both the astounding Portal and fun-looking Team Fortress 2.
There are five brand new doses of Episode Two in motion, giving us a glimpse into the game's fresh location and challenges. Trailer one shows some brilliant underground action, with an alien Vortigaunt helping Freeman out with his electro-attacks and choke-slamming an Antlion.
