E34: Making video games accessible with Georgia Loewen

Gaming is a multi-billion dollar industry more than double the size of the movie and music industry combined. But for the longest time a huge group of gamers, people with physical disabilities, were excluded due to the nature of the controls, whether it’s controllers or keyboards. That’s rapidly changing and people like Carleton University’s Georgia Loewen, a Masters’ student in Human-Computer Interaction, are working on improving accessibility to games. We discuss the growing field of wearable technology. Vinny and Katie talk about special frogs and a problem with Voyager 2.

76 – Top 5 Video Games of 2019

We made it to 2020!

A brand new decade of PodCavern is here and the gang is prepared for yet another year of Top 5 Lists! But before we can properly ring in the new year, as per every year, we must give some love to video games.

So join Tuong La and Game Guru’s Matthew Whalley, Angus MacDonald, and Ethan Howieson as they celebrate the best games of 2019!
