Before we delve into this story, I just want to say that everything turned out alright. No Canadian laws were broken. No authority figures taking advantage of underage people in their care.

Okay, so for the most part Runaway 2 looks great. The art in the backgrounds is beautiful, and we're genetically unable to hate on a new adventure game. We're total jerks, however, and had to point and laugh at this screenshot, because, despite the high quality of the rest of the game's art, the c...

The recently-announced DS version of Runaway 2 is looking pretty spiffy -- and that's a good thing, since it's apparently set for the end of this month. So soon?

We must have missed the memo explaining the world's growing problem of ignoring their alarm clocks, but on second thought, maybe it's just time (ahem) for manufacturers to crank out solutions to the issue that has quietly been around for centuries. Not too long after the ever-mischievous Blowfly h...

Never mind those fancy fuel cells -- just knock that phone around a bit to keep it juiced. At least that's the idea with three new concept handsets introduced by France-based ModeLabs, the same company hooking up with Levi's (to produce phones with decidedly less fancy recharging technology and mor...

What we're watching: If you're not watching Discovery HD Atlas...you should be. Australia is featured this week and should be excellent. The World Series continues on Fox, while Sunday Night Football takes the night off, but a min-marathon of Heroes takes its place. If you're looking for Runaway on ...
