Along those same lines you might consider picking up the .org and .net versions of those domains as well.

We got a few other mentions recently:

Review of the 30" Dell panel over at Hardware.fr

and the Penny Arcade Forums. People had nice things to say about the forum, and the community. I realize it's not an "official" mention, but that is a huge community.

also of note is a post made by Storm Shadow, who is a contributor on the PA website:
and I gave Sean Decker (the producer of the Battlefield franchise) all kinds of shit a couple of weeks ago for that. He's inclined to believe that it really isn't all that important and that most people do not have widescreen displays.

I told him that it seems asinine that a game would come out that sets the bar for what a "high-end" gaming rig means, yet does not support high-end resolutions, and wide screen.

Anyways, I also tried to soft sell him a bit, and when he talked about 'cinematic moments,' I told him that they would be so much more effective if only they were in *widescreen*.

Point is, I think I made a connection, and I'm hopeful for the next iteration of Battlefield to be in ws.


We also got a link somewhere on the Planet Battlefield site on GameSpy, but I couldn't find the specific link.

Yes, it's ironic that they talk about cinematic moments, but then won't let them occur in a 'cinematic FOV'... :lol:

We were also mentioned in a review article for the new 7900 cards from nvidia on [H]ardOCP. They have a section showing the widescreen gaming with the new and old cards and on the second to last page conclude the widescreen segment with a mention and link to the site as a place to get more info on WS gaming!
