Scott starts off the discussion this week with a scathing technical review of the recently released EA survival-horror game, Dead Space. After a brief cool down period, we deliver the news that TR’s marketing maestro Adam Eiberger is the proud father of a newborn baby boy. (Daniel Micah Eiberger weighs in at 8 lbs, is in good health, and is consistently scoring 240 in WorldBench.)
Before taking time off to prepare for the new baby gerbil, Adam and Scott worked to put together TR’s 2008 Christmas Giveaway. Scott fills us in on the impressive specs of the giveaway PC, and he says he expects to post an article very soon with details on how to enter. The rest of our episode covers this past week’s helping of TR news and articles. Our editors discuss SSD speeds in Windows 2000, the advancement of physics technology in games, the recent release of OpenCL 1.0, Gigabyte’s new ‘nettablet,’ Intel’s Core i7-940, and more.
