The "Balanced Brawl" project, first announced in 2009, aimed to fix Super Smash Bros.

Canadian video game sales dip for first time since 2002

According to number crunchers at NPD, game industry sales have given Canadian retail outlets the cold shoulder so far in 2009.

Dojo update: Wait, what?

We buried our friend, the Smash Bros. Brawl Dojo, many months ago. Then, like a zombie, the beast rose from its grave to honor today's European Brawl release.

Another Week in Japan: Hardware and software numbers 6/16-6/22

Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Well, except for the PSP, that is. Sony's handheld is still as mighty as ever. Even so, the Wii toppled all the other home consoles once again last week, reclaiming its second-place spot: The new Wii kid on the block in the charts is Mario Super Sluggers, which...
