A game review Posted 6:48PM April, 4, 2001 by DDG All of fans of Anne McCaffrey should love this one:
We've just posted up a review of Freedom: First Resistance. A decidedly mediocre action adventure based on the Freedom trilogy by Scif Fi and fantasy author Anne McCaffrey. Here's a quick snippet from the review:
"...the AI is appalling. The path finding by the characters is so bad they usually find themselves running into walls, unable to navigate around through a door thatâ€™s right next to them. Enemies just charge at you and also suffer from bad path finding. I actually found myself luring hoards of Catteni into doorways only then to take them out from a distance as they all got stuck in a doorway. *sigh*"
We'd appreciate a link to it on your site. The URL is:
A cooler...of sorts Posted 6:47PM April, 4, 2001 by DDG Check this out:
Spy Photo: The Reactor Superactive Water Cooler - April 3rd, 2001 ~Scott From CPUfx's Top Secret underground laboratories located somewhere in the mountains of Colorado, comes a new and daring water cooling design! The picture over at www.cluboverclocker.com shows a dual channel water block with dual slim fans. So what the heck are these fans for? If our information is correct, each side of the Reactor Superactive Water Block has small cooling fins built right in. The two fans cool these fins much the same as a conventional heatsink. This new feature should help keep the water block extra cool plus prevent a catastrophic disaster just incase the water pump should ever fail. The Reactor will also use the same spring clips used on the Core. Check it out and be sure to watch for an exclusive review right here on ClubOC!

AMD Thunderbird 1.22GHz review Posted 6:45PM April, 4, 2001 by DDG Club Overclocker has a review of AMD's new love child: the Thunderbird 1.33GHz processor:
AMD Thunderbird 1.33GHz CPU Review - April 3rd, 2001 ~Scott It's been a busy day here at the club! This time we crank out a review on the best CPU available from AMD, the 1.33GHz Thunderbird! Here's clip: "Just recently, AMD released their new 266MHz bus based CPUs featuring this new 1.33GHz flagship. Faster bus speeds means higher performance, something we could all use more of. Since this is the first time we've been able to get our hands on a top end CPU, especially one as fresh as the 1.33GHz Thunderbird, we can hardly wait to get started!"
A new controller Posted 6:43PM April, 4, 2001 by DDG Here's another controller to add to your collection:
New Fragmaster 2000 Game Controller Review
Yes folks, it's that game controller they announced awhile ago that we all know and love. (Okay, so you don't know jack about it, screw me). Anyways today at G3D:Gaming In 3D they have reviewed the Frag Master 2000, a controller that was made out of an keyboard with a dremel? Sound funky? Check it out. Their not reinventing the controller, just modifying it. *wink*
"The games used for testing will be Half Life Counter Strike 1.1, Unreal Tournament, and Red Alert 2. Half Life: CS1.1 it works as any other keyboard, just map the buttons and you are set. One complaint I had with it was the buttons were too soft and didn't feel like my MS Keyboard. Other then that it worked flawlessly. Typing messages was easier then attempting to type with the keyboard slanted and having lots of typos."
Something for your case Posted 6:42PM April, 4, 2001 by DDG If you've ever felt the need to add something special to your case then read on:
GideonTech.com has just finished a guide to adding window etching's to your case! A nice and simple way to add some extra spark to your box.
"There are numerous case mods out there with window kits. Add a neon tube inside your case behind that window and you have yourself a nice pimpin' case to show off to your friends. But how do you make your case stand out from the rest? Add more neon? If those tubes are costing you too much, I would suggest slapping in some Window Etchings!"
