Highlight of the Week: This is how a real man asks a woman out to dinner (Mortal Kombat (2011))

Posted on April 22, 2011

One of the best things about the new Mortal Kombat has to be Johnny Cage. He’s undoubtedly a dick (only a dick would tattoo ‘Johnny’ across his chest), but he plays it so well that it’s impossible not to like the guy. Without him, Mortal Kombat’s ridiculous pantomime plot would feel way too sincere. This is just one of Johnny’s many outstanding story mode moments:

Sweet crap, 2011 is looking good already. It’s often easy to lose track over the overall shape of a year’s gaming when current big releases and console launches are going off in your face.

Using your 3DS to put boobs on everyone and everything: The professional photographer’s guide (Nintendo 3DS)

Posted on March 25, 2011

So, 3D on the 3DS then. It’s good. Not just in games though. Oh no, some of the very most fun stuff so far is to be found lurking amongst the plethora of in-built 3D toys, games and general tools of tomfoolery coded into the handheld’s dashboard. Nintendo really wants to show this tech off in the coolest, most imaginatively Nintendo-y ways possible.

We however, want to shoe it off in the most GamesRadar-y way possible. So we’re going to show you how to put boobs on anything you want. Anything. Actual 3D boobs. Ladies and gentlemen, the evolution of video game breastery has taken a quantum leap forward this day.

Pokemon Black and White set new one-day sales record (Pokemon Black / White)

Posted on March 20, 2011

Don’t think for a second the Pokemon craze is past its heyday. In just one day the newest entries in the long-running RPG series surpassed sales of more than one million units. According to Nintendo, roughly 1.08 million copies of Pokemon Black and Pokemon White were sold, which makes it the best launch day in Pokemon history…

Crysis 2’s 3D tech is unbelievable (Crysis 2)

Posted on March 18, 2011

Somehow, through technical sorcery by the hands of Crytek’s super-nerds, Crysis 2 is not only possibly the most amazing-looking console game ever, but it even does so without creating a reality-sucking singularity inside your PS3 or 360. It looks even better on PC, but whether it will stutter like Colin Firth depends on your machine’s muscle. We’ve played all three versions of the game, but it’s hard to say how the average PC will handle it since we played on a mysteriously-specced mega-machine, but wow was it crisp and luscious. So Cryisis 2, any way you play it, looks stunning in 2D. But hold your nanosuit-clad horses, because Crytek’s “how the heck did they do that” CryEngine 3 also pulls off 3D so near-flawlessly we still can’t believe it works the way it does…

Men of War: Assault Squad (Review)

Posted on March 09, 2011

Let’s get the cold hard facts out there right away – Men of War: Assault Squad is a deep and complicated multiplayer-focused RTS that is not a good choice for those new to the series. It exists as a stand-alone expansion of the original Men of War, and while the bolstered gameplay and balance fixes will excite some, the steep learning curve and lack of campaign will send others running for the trenches. It’s a game that’s either too complicated for its own good or a dream come true for hardcore RTS fans, and it certainly makes no attempt to bridge that gap…

ClassicRadar: Console cameos in videogames (The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass)

Posted on March 08, 2011

Most of us play games to escape reality. For a few moments, the trials of the material world trickle away and your only concern is how many goddamn gold coins you can collect in an hour. Then, out of nowhere, a friggin’ Xbox 360 console shows up in the actual game and all your suspended disbelief goes right out the window. It happens more often than you’d think. So often, in fact, we had little trouble amassing a large collection of these sneaky cameos. Here are the best examples, from zombie-blasting Dreamcasts to a DS floating in space.

SOCOM 4 hands-on multiplayer preview: new mode, beta plans revealed (SOCOM 4)

Posted on March 08, 2011

Back in January, we got what we thought was a pretty comprehensive look at what’s in store for SOCOM 4’s multiplayer. We saw the new additions, like cover, regenerating health and airstrikes; we leveled up our weapons to unlock new mods; and we quickly learned that, regenerating health or no, one or two well-aimed shots are usually enough to make you dead. But as we found out during GDC, there were two things developer Zipper was holding back from us…

MotorStorm Apocalypse: Multiplayer impressions and video (Motorstorm: Apocalypse)

Posted on March 06, 2011

Surprisingly few racing games are big on offline multiplayer these days, except for ones that end in the word ‘Kart’. So imagine our surprise when Evolution Studios announced that MotorStorm Apocalypse would not only allow online play, but four-player split-screen too. So the UK GamesRadar team huddled around the TV to put this split-screen action to the test – and you can watch the results here.

Battlefield 3 first-look preview (Battlefield 3)

Posted on March 04, 2011

Let’s not beat around the bush here: Battlefield 3 looks freaking amazing. At their GDC preview event, the folks at DICE showed off a PC version of the title and did their best to blow the collective minds of everyone present. We can’t really say to what extent they succeeded, but we will say this: They certainly brought their A game…

The Top 7… Pointless game wars (Modern Warfare 2)

Posted on March 03, 2011

In real life, war is messy. Mistakes get made, civilians get hurt, families are shattered and once-thriving countries are bombed back to the Stone Age, often because of the misguided actions of their politicians. Wars in videogames, by contrast, are a hell of a lot more convenient and clean. Because they’re (usually) fictitious, the justifications are clear, the goals relatively simple and the opposing forces completely, irredeemably evil.

But that’s not always the case. Whether by design or through slapdash writing, some of gaming’s most notable conflicts – when examined objectively – are completely meaningless, stupid exercises in futility for all involved. Here are some of our favorites…

Marvel vs Capcom 3 Character Strategy Guide (Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds)

Posted on March 03, 2011

So you picked up MvC3 and you’re wondering “Who should I play?” Answer:  Whoever you like. While, over time, certain characters might prove themselves to be better than others, *cough* Sentinel *cough* the game is still new and everyone should be more focused on having fun and learning rather than waiting for a tier list. We’ve compiled a guide that gives a quick rundown of every character for players trying to get a feel for who they want to main.

For fighting fans looking to invest in an arcade fightstick, you have two options: controllers that were made by Mad Catz and controllers that weren’t. There’s just no comparison.

These controllers are the real deal – and with a limited production run of 5,000 units, this Collector’s Edition stick for the PS3 is as amazing as it is rare…

Gaming’s most horrifying sex scenes (Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas)

Posted on February 27, 2011

Whatever your opinion about sex in videogames, the simple fact is this: games won’t really be taken seriously as an art form until they can get certain things right, and one of those things is sex. It’s an essential component of film, music, books, paintings and even television, and yet gaming lags sadly behind.

Part of this is because games still haven’t quite shaken their kiddie-toys stigma, but mostly it’s because the rare games that try to get sex right almost never do. The results of their endless efforts tend to range from mildly off-putting to outright mortifying, with varying levels of ugliness and hilarity in between. Maybe someday, we’ll see an in-game love scene that doesn’t make us recoil in horror – but in the meantime, here are 13 that did…

L.A. Noire pre-order bonuses announced (L.A. Noire)

Posted on February 27, 2011

Earlier today, Rockstar announced a hefty collection of L.A. Noire pre-order bonuses, which include unlockable outfits and additional cases to solve. According to the press release, the bonuses are “limited in quantity and available while supplies last.” That makes sense for Target’s offer – a $5 Gift Card or free Rockstar Games T-Shirt – but we’re not sure how much warehouse space the DLC codes are taking up. Huh…

Interweb’s biggest Zelda image celebrates 25 years of Link in amazing, eyeball-arousing form (The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword)

Posted on February 23, 2011

Once upon a time, someone once uttered the phrase: “A picture is worth somewhere between 999 and 1001 words”. Eh, or something to that effect. So, rather than waste precious milliseconds of your existence, we’ll simply say; click inside to see the most incredible (and stupidly-sized) Legend of Zelda art your eye holes have ever seen. Link, happy 25th birthday, pal.

The latest teaser for Aquire’s pantsing-based brawler, Akiba’s Trip, shows off the game’s recreation of Tokyo’s geek-friendly neighborhood, Akihabara. So far, the game looks pretty accurate, with the exception of the rampant invasions of personal space, privacy, and up-skirt photography…

The Top 7… disastrous game romances (Ico and Shadow of the Colossus: The Collection)

Posted on February 22, 2011

Love’s a funny old thing, ain’t it? It inspires great works of art. It knows no boundaries, conquering race, creed and geography. And it totally forces you to fork out for cheap-ass chocolates on anniversaries. While love affairs can end a bit messily in real life, we’ve yet to see a couple with romantic woes commit international espionage or murderise a series of skyscraper-sized monsters for each other. But in video games? Hell, its normal practice for digital Cupid’s arrows. So, in the spirit of being a week late for Valentine’s Day, we thought it was high time to celebrate some of gaming’s most ruinous romances.
