eVGA 8800GT Video Card -- The Way Games Are Supposed To Be Played

Splinter Cell Chaos Theory -- First Impressions
I picked up Splinter Cell – Chaos Theory for XBox a couple of days ago and thought I’d post some initial thoughts I have on the game. First off, the gameplay itself is nice…the graphics are some of the best I’ve seen for an XBox title. I’m equally impressed with how challenging... Read More...
