Show notes
This episode kicks off with the latest and greatest geek movie trailers, namely Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Terminator Genisys (really don’t like how they’re spelling that name). Then it’s straight into listener mail before a series of news and reviews. Highlights include Jordan feeling left out of… well, pretty much everything, and Geoff continuing his torturous SSD experiment.

We’re still live streaming each of these new podcast episodes on Twitch.Tv… so yeah, that’s still a thing. If you want a combination of our dulcet tones and, quick frankly, stunning visages, you’d do well to catch the show live or check out our video edition below.

TN? – from Bobby:

“hi jordan you funky monkey i have a question/subject for the TR podcast. i recently saw a 144hz asus monitor at a friends house and the the motion clarity/smoothness while playing games is really noticeable compared to my dell 2709w and now i really want one…yet when i read the TR forums and comments everyone talks about TN panels like they are produced by the devil himself and to stay away from them no matter what should i stay away from 144hz TN panels even if i cant see anything wrong with the image quality? i really want that smooth/clear image a 144hz monitor brings.”

Alienware Alpha? – from NTMBK:

“Reckon you will be reviewing the Alienware Alpha on the website? It looks like a very nice little PC, and shrinking the gaming desktop should make Cyril happy.”
