One of the best in-gags in gaming history is the "Lara Nude Cheat." For all the old Tomb Raider games, Core would leak a cheat that claimed to turn Lara naked. In reality, once you'd managed to pull off the complex moves, your only reward was to watch your heroine violently explode with a scream, her arms, legs and head flying off in different directions.
Gone are such innocent times, thanks to the mod scene. Now you can have Lara look any way you wish in TR: Anniversary...
If you never see the point of buying every yearly update of EA's sports titles, EA's about to give you one: from September 1 it will begin shutting down the online servers for most of its 2006-edition sports titles.
As of that date, the online gameplay options on games like FIFA World Cup 2006, NBA Live 06, Madden 06 and Tiger Woods 06 will be rendered useless on all formats including PC.
This means you'll have to purchase the newer editions of the games to continue the fight via the web, or
The recently released Resident Evil 5 trailer is currently causing a storm of debate across the internet after one critic - a single, solitary person writing on a blog - fingered the game as being racist in its depiction of black people as "inhuman savages" and for the fact that a white man in military clothing is employed to destroy them. It's an interesting opinion, certainly, but one that we happen to think is wrong.
While a cursory glance at Resident Evil 5 may give the impression that
Like many franchises that refuse to die, Transformers have kept coming back for years since their inception - and for good reason - the concept works. Gigantic robots turn into mundane vehicles. Here we have a quick rundown of the entire series to gear us up for the upcoming film and game of the same
If there's one thing that can get you pumped to play a game, it's a rockin' intro. Even in this age of overblown cinematics and increasingly elaborate plots spiraling into gaming oblivion, there's something about a few guitar licks and a hint of action that get the gamer juices flowing. Ever since consoles started kicking out high quality music and graphics in the early 90s, we've been addicted to the art of the intro.

To celebrate the release of Tomb Raider Anniversary - which is in stores today - Eidos has managed to hustle ten years worth of Lara Croft models into a London studio - and here is a
Some of us love it. Most everyone else on the planet can't stand or ignores it. But the fact remains that video game music draws a huge audience wherever it goes, and now GamesRadar has its own take to share. Brett Elston (Nintendo Editor), Joe McNeily (Senior Editor) and Stephen Pierce (Editorial Director) sit down with a smattering of classic video game tunes and weigh in on each song. We'll cover everything from the NES to the DS to the Xbox 360 - won't you join us?

The funny thing about inventing a genre of videogames is that, until it becomes completely played out, every game that emulates your formula is going to be attached to your name. Games that feature a wide-open, freely explorable world, for example, will have a hard time avoiding the label of "Grand Theft Auto clone," especially if their worlds are littered with vehicles to steal and drive.
In the six years since Grand Theft Auto III, a slew of games have tried to become "the next GTA," but so
Fresh out of the sewer, mutated for your viewing enjoyment, comes a brand stinkin' new video that showcases your favorite subterranean superheroes in action. There's a wide variety of action to be seen here, from single turtle throwdowns to frantic character-swapping melees, and it happens all over the place, from the deep in the sewers to the top of giant parade floats. Mayhem galore.
From the looks of things, these Turtles have been studying tapes of the Prince and Kratos in action - two
A game is made, and it turns out to be good. The game comes out, becomes popular... and then becomes a series. Usually, we have nothing bad to say about that. Until, inevitably, things start to slide. The creator that made the game what it was bails. Or it fizzles in the transition from one console to another. Maybe the staff just forgot what made it great. Whatever the problem, we've selected seven of the biggest offenders, for your
