Still trying to figure out what to do with all those Best Buy and Walmart gift cards you got for the holidays? First you should use them on some deodorant, then use what's left to buy some of these games that hit store shelves in the last 12 months. In no particular order of course. Agree? Disagree? Let us know.
A 23-year-old man from in South Carolina actually attempted a live-action version of the classic arcade game "Frogger" late Monday night. It didn't turn out well. "Frogger," pictured above, is the game where a frog (the little green figure on the bottom left) attempts to weave in and out of cars to get to the other side of the road.
Only this dope is a human, not a frog, and the cars were real, not pixels. Perhaps because this guy was lacking superior frog-like jumping abilities or maybe because he got scared, he was hit and is now recovering in the hospital. His wounds may heal but there's no cure for his stupidity.
If you're wondering if this guy was just chasing after his wallet, the answer is no. Police say he was talking about the game "Frogger" with his friends before yelling "Go!" and darting into oncoming traffic. Now, if you're wondering whether this guy drunk or if he was dared to do this, the answer is almost certainly yes.
Next time you hear a parent blame violence on modern video games, tell them about the fella who ran directly into traffic playing some silly old arcade game called "Frogger."
Almost three years after it was first announced at 2008's E3, "DC Universe" is finally scheduled to hit shelves in the first quarter of 2011. The game gives gamers the chance to create original characters that combine the powers of heroes like Batman and Flash, or villains like Joker and Catwoman. But before we made plans to fork over any hard-earned coin, we had to ask: Is playing what's probably the most ambitious massively multi-player online role-playing game (MMORPG) ever made worth the $14.99 subscription fee?
Read why Mark Anderson, the game's art director, believes so after the jump. Read More...
The good ole Nintendo Wii took over the video game world with its motion control system back in 2006 and it's had a stranglehold on the industry since. But now other video game companies have come out with their own take on the motion-control video game world. Sony released the Playstation Move, its add-on motion-control gaming system for Playstation 3, back in September and technology-wise, it's already safe to say that it's way better than the Wii. Why? We've got five good reasons after the jump. Read More...

Before the 2010 calendar ends and you fit a goofy "2011" hat on the top of your head, some perspective is in order. What were the best albums, video games, sneakers and FAILS of this year? Those pressing questions are all answered with this list of the best "best-of" lists for 2010. Year-end compilations are a tradition on par with getting drunk on egg nog and eating burnt cookies. We hope you enjoy this list as much as you enjoy those things.
Is there anything in a man's life more boring than those 15 to 20 seconds (more if you've got the bladder of a brontosaurus) spent standing in front of a urinal? We say no. That's why we're so thrilled about a bizarre new invention out of Japan that aims to answer that age old question: How am I supposed to stay entertained while peeing!?
The SEGA Toirettsu is a video game hardwired into urinals. It uses the trajectory and strength of a man's stream to play short, animated games. Here's how it works: There's a sensor on the back wall of the urinal and an LCD screen eye level on the wall. The screen displays the games, which are controlled by peeing on the sensor. So a man can use his stream to put out fires or erase graffiti or, if he're peeing next to an especially friendly guy, throw it into multiplayer mode and race to shoot milk out of your cute little character's nose. Really.
Watch the Toirettsu in action below. Don't worry, it's totally SFW.

Warren Spector, the legendary game developer behind classic games like "Deus Ex" and "System Shock," and his team at Junction Point Studios are the masterminds behind "Epic Mickey," the first Disney game to get both grown men and their toddlers psyched. The game's a bit darker than most Disney games and that's something people are happy about. There's something people aren't so happy about though: a pesky in-game camera issue that's driving some folks, including Spector, absolutely crazy.
We spoke to the man himself to get his take on the issue. Check it out below. Read More...
