Happy Canada Day, Canada!

By Paul Hunter

Happy maple syrup day everyone!

Being Canada's Premier Gaming Blog and all, I thought it was only appropriate that I take a few minutes to spread that Canadian love from coast-to-coast. Our great country is officially 142 years old or roughly 4.8 times my age.

I see no better combination in this world than to be Canadian and a gamer. So for all of those joystick-wielding canucks out there - thanks for making NextGen Player the premier destination for Canadian gaming news. Our goal has been, and always will be, to share our exciting Canadian gaming stories with the rest of the world.

Here's to another year of exciting game reveals, console price reductions, and of course hardcore, prolific gaming. Who says Canada lacks identity? Clearly we're the most loyal and passionate bunch of gamers on this planet. It must be all that maple syrup powering our brains and fueling our thumbs.
