We’re back to our classic format in this week’s episode, starting with a look at some of this season’s new games. Scott is still having a blast with Borderlands, and everyone has their take on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, with its fast-paced, on-rails gameplay and controversial airport scene.
Moving on from gaming, Cyril and Scott tackle major industry news: AMD and Intel have finally shaken hands and made up after four years of litigation and multiple antitrust investigations. Scott goes on to detail what AMD has revealed of its latest processor roadmap, before going on to comment on the company’s massive, dual-GPU Radeon HD 5970. Our panel also discusses the slow trickle of graphics cards across the industry, Kanguru’s eSATA/USB thumb drive, and more.
