[H]ardNews 6th Edition

Memorial Day Gaming Editorial:

The crew at Bit-Tech have a thought provoking editorial about WWII games and Memorial Day. Should big companies like Activision give a little to memorial funds? Is rushing a virtual Omaha Beach from the safety of your armchair good? Bad? Do companies have an obligation to give something to memorials or would it be a good gesture? Read the editorial and see what you think.

Do Call of Duty and other WWII games do the same? I guess you can�t expect a video game to able to achieve this level of artistry or realism, but, then, isn�t there something weird about reworking of real-life horror to ultimately - let�s face it - make money? Aside from a few meaningful quotes about war from the likes of Churchill, Einstein and um, Stalin, COD does little to honour history.

Gigabyte 3D Cooler GT:

You have to admit, the Gigabyte 3D Cooler is a pretty unique HSF to say the least. We also hear it performs pretty well too. Check out this clip from the full review here:

The engineers at Gigabyte obviously had their thinking caps working and were able to produce something that is unique, stylish AND most importantly effective with their first lineup of heatsink coolers.

Games On EBay:

Since it is slow news day due to the holiday, here is an eBay link of the day for you. No, it isn�t a link to some dude in a dress (like last time) it is for a little piece of gaming history. Check out the autographed Quake 3 Tin Box and a Q3: Team Arena that were signed by the whole idsoftware crew is up for sale on Ebay. If you are big idsoftware buffs, you�ll want to check these out. There is also a Star Trek: Elite Forces from signed by Raven Software up on the block too.
