Game Of The Month Poll – October 2008

We’ve decided to start awarding ‘Game Of The Month’ status to one lucky title, in the hopes that it will make our ‘Game Of The Year’ a little easier to decide.

Then we ran into a problem.

With so many great games releasing this month, and each Bastard with their own opinion, there has been some… shall we say ‘spirited debate’?

Help us choose the title most deserving of becoming our Game Of The Month by voting in the poll below.

NOTE: Games from the last week of October are not included so we have time to compile votes. That’s why you don’t see Fallout 3 on the list, but you MAY see it on our November list… if it’s good enough.

Finally A Supercomputer For The Working Man!

Just the other day I was using my pocket calculator to create a complex climate simulation gauging the effects of lunar cycles on bacteria growth in wetland areas.

I was thinking to myself ‘This would be SO much easier if I just had a supercomputer, but who has an extra million dollars laying around?’

Cray must have been eavesdropping on my thoughts (again) because they just announced their new ‘budget’ desktop supercomputer!

Sporting 8 nodes with 64 cores and 64GB of RAM each (that’s 512 cores and 512 GB of RAM total) and starting at an easy to afford $25,000… who DOESN’T want one?

It even comes in Windows HPC or Linux flavors.

Now… pardon me, I have a kidney to sell.

Trophy List – Call Of Duty: World At War

Even though I’ve never really played a World War II shooter, I feel compelled to make a snarky comment about how many there are on the market right now.

I understand it’s in the ‘Video Game Blog Handbook’, but I’m still waiting for my copy to arrive in the mail.

Get your list on inside.
