From Jeremy: Big news in the Good Game camp this week, as last month revealed the show for gamers by gamers to be the #1 downloaded show in the ABC! Good Game narrowly topped favourites Media Watch and Triple J TV. ... You can catch Good Game on Monday nights @ 8:30pm on ABC2, as well as late Friday nights on ABC1 just before rage. Download any ep at www.abc.net.au/goodgame.

Mad Mike sent in this video about the debilitating condition of First-Person Shooter Disease. Funny stuff. Duke Nukem's disease is a scary one, Gene brings you the story of the life of a First Person Shooter.

Another recent video is this Office 2010: The Movie trailer, which seems to be from Microsoft, or could be a parody, but given the weird barfing ads they've been putting out lately, who knows. Anyway, it's pretty funny, even if it continues their trend of telling you nothing whatsoever about the product.

InsideHW have a nine-way CPU cooler roundup posted. Since we are testing products from mid and high class segment, our choice of Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 as testing CPU is logical, while ASUS Rampage Formula is used as base for our testing rig. Room temperature was set at 23 degrees Celsius. If you wonder why we didn't test same coolers with AMD CPUs the answer is simple: when it comes to CPU coolers, it doesn't matter what CPU is underneath it if the cooler is good.

Hexus have an interview with Corsair about some recent quality issues. What we've seen is a higher-than-expected field failure rate with our Elpida Hyper-based Dominator GT modules. This is something the enthusiast community started to see a while ago, but we weren't sure at first if it wasn't just related to the fact that most of them were pushing them as hard as possible, upping voltages and clock dividers, pouring liquid nitrogen or liquid helium on them and so on.

Today's timewaster is this free browser version of Street Fighter II CE. Continuing the recent spate of free releases of 1990s classics, Capcom and GameTap have now released a browser-based version of Street Fighter II CE.
