Sponsored by Nvidia. GeForce LAN 6 is coming up! Over 600 gamers converging on the decks of the USS Hornet aircraft carrier in Alameda, CA for a weekend of gaming madness. Head over to GeForceLan.com for a chance to nab the last few BYOC or general admission tickets.
In TR Podcast tradition, we kick off this episode with a lengthy round-table gaming discussion. Cyril relates his experiences with the Battlefield 3 beta and TrackMania 2, after which our panel goes over some of the more notable titles on the horizon, including Rage, The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, and Modern Warfare 3.
Next, the panelists change gears and share their thoughts on Amazon's new Kindles—especially the Kindle Fire, which Scott believes will be a commercial success. We round out the episode with a look at Asus' big honkin' Llano notebook and a slew of new 120-128GB solid-state drives.
