For a time, you couldn't avoid games that had cel shading, and arguably it was all down to one little graffiti-tagging game. Jet Set Radio, or Jet Grind Radio for our American friends, has players vandalise the streets with spray cans, all while avoiding getting caught by the authorities.

This Jet Set Radio tribute album will graffiti itself on your heart

Jet Set Radio is one of those flawless series that we all wish we Game God would grant bestow upon us with a new entry. While the original game is available through Steam, getting modern versions of the other titles is nearly impossible. So instead we must remember it through the legacy it leaves behind. And with an unbearable amount of heart, 2 Mello has…

The History Of Overwatch’s Hero Abilities

Developers imitate each other, as do writers, musicians and artists, and Blizzard are the best in the business at it. No other company is so good at distilling the sweat of another’s brow and refining it into pure, unadulterated joy.

There's also a new trailer to celebrate this fact, which you can see below.

Don’t Miss A Beat: Jet Set Radio HD

The weekend was a little grey, a little dull, although even as an Englishman I can't blame the weather for not trying harder. Instead, I'll lay the blame at the door of the internal imbalance that left me huddled on the couch underneath a blanket wishing I could enter the halls of sleep until waking life became slightly less of a chore. What better way…

Get Set For Jet Set Radio PC

Jet Set Radio continues to be an astonishingly good looking game, over there on the last of the Segaboxes and wherever else it may have popped up over the years. It'll be looking even better on PC soon enough, with announcement that a high definition digital download version of the game is due on XBLA, PSN and my computer this summer. Maybe it will be…
