Game advice needed

Postby Highlander » 18 Sep 2010, 11:54

I got me a mid range new laptop.

So what games do you reckon I can run on it, I can run Mark Of Chaos on all medium settings it runs great. RTS is my preferred genre and I love the look of the new ones. Any advice?

I'd definitely recommend giving Starcraft 2 a go. I'm sure someone on the forums will have a spare trial code so you can see if it'll run on your laptop before buying it.

If you want to test for certain if most games will run on your laptop, I'd recommend running the benchmark on this site: http://www.yougamers.com/
Its run by FutureMark and I've found it to be a really reliable guide for working out if a game will run on any given computer, and because its actually benchmarking your exact system it will let you know how and why you pass or fail.
To be honest, with that setup you ought to be able to play most current gen games, albeit possibly on a lower graphical setting depending on how intensive the graphics are.
