The crew from Good Game will be back on our TV screens next Monday night resuming their fourth season. For our first ep back we'll do a quick rundown of what came out over the break, including MGS4, Brawl, Ninja Gaiden 2, Bourne and Age of Conan.

Some interesting images on the CNET News site look at a new camera with a layout that is similar in the size and shape of the human eye. The curved technology will put an entire image in focus in contrast to today's cameras which take images that are sharper in the center than near the edges, according to researchers. Plus, the technology could be a big step toward the development of a bionic eye similar to the one worn by the "Terminator."
