One misconception about Canadians is that we spend our lives obsessing over hockey, guzzling superior beer and adding extra vowels to our words. This is simply not true – we do all that, and also make and play a ton of videogames. In honour (that's honour with a 'u') of this, the Canadian Videogame Awards are returning to Vancouver this May for a second year, and today its producers released the list of finalists vying for the 2011 cup...
Gerald A. “Jerry” Lawson, the American electronics engineer credited with creating the world's first cartridge-based videogame system, has passed away at the age of 70. You'd be forgiven for not recognizing the name, but if you've ever owned a home console, then you owe at least a few minutes of your time to honor the man who arguably started it all.
A forty year veteran of the electronics field, Lawson was a key...
In the wake of game cancellations and delays in Japan following the natural disasters earlier this month, the future of the Tokyo Game Show seemed to be on uncertain ground... until today.
Speaking to Kotaku, event organizers explained that the annual game convention is scheduled to proceed as planned. “With things as they stand now, we are not considering cancellation or delaying the show,” said a TGS representative...
Electronic Arts has spent the past few years building up new IP like Dead Space while also striving to make flagging, yet still-modern series relevant again, like Need for Speed: Most Wanted and Medal of Honor. Meanwhile, the company is sitting on a treasure trove of beloved franchises that haven't seen new installments in years.
EA's Frank Gibeau told CVG that the company is "very cognizant" of its back catalog...
Gamers love to get nostalgic for old games. But the danger of going back to the games we used to play as kids (if you were playing games in the early 80s, that is) is the inevitable crushing reality that they just aren't as good as we remember them. Often they're straight up pony. It hurts. But it's the actual crap truth about old games from the Stupid Ages. It's not funny. Only this video does actually make it funny.

On Friday, March 11, Japan was hit by the largest earthquake in the country’s history. In light of the recent tragedy, many Japanese game publishers have announced plans to support relief efforts for victims of the natural disaster…

If you’re on the prowl for some fast food, you might want to consider picking up a Wendy’s Kid’s Meal with your side of diabetes type 2. The fast food chain has teamed up with Namco Bandai to include one of five PAC-MAN board games with each purchase…
Guinness World Records has released the results of its online poll asking gamers to decide who the all-time greatest game characters are. More than 13,000 people participated in the vote on Guinness's official website and it looks like nostalgia stole the show, with only two post-2000 characters making the top 10. Halo's Master Chief, who originally debuted in 2001, took the number three spot, while Kratos from God of War, first seen in 2005, placed ninth...
Pressing buttons? Waving your arms in front of a sensor? Nah! That stuff is old-school - there's a new technology in the works which can detect the movement of your eyes and apply it as a control mechanism.
To accomplish this, engineering research group National Instruments uses electrodes which measure voltage activity when a human's eyes move. As the voltage generated from eye movements is very weak, delicate measurements are required. Nevertheless, the engineers have created working prototypes - look left or right and an object on the screen will move accordingly. Or, open your eyes wider to expand the view...
Sometimes, we love our jobs. Forget the free games and attractive jarnalist dental plans. Occasionally, a story just comes along and makes you realise what a wonderful world of entertaining interactive products we exist in. So, it’s with great joy we present a Japanese Sega title that makes a game out of taking a piss in a public toilet.
