PC Gaming

Post by CQR Rogue on Fri 10 Jun 2011 - 14:44

Hey all,

I have recently got back into some serious PC stratgey gaming -

World in Conflict

&

Company of Heroes.

I was just wondering if any 1 had any of the above games and fancied a battle night?

I have them both. Had them for years. Barely played them. CoH is pretty good, although I never got into it. I need to try World in COnflict again, I don't think I gave it much of a chance. Will probably install it onto my new PC Wink

I play my laptop pretty regularly since I got the drivers for the graphics card to work (thanks to laptop2go.com). I have and semi-regularly play Company of Heroes online, although it isn't installed at the moment, and it takes FOREVER to patch up. Other than that, I play a lot of Civ IV and Dawn Of War 2, Race, STCC 2, rFactor.

Don't play as many FPSs as I used to, back in the day, because I find the laptop just isn't comforable to play them on. I have a Nostromo N52 and a decent mouse, but without a desk (got rid of my desk when I binned the desktop PC and got the laptop) I just can't get comfy enough anywhere in the house to play them. Used to be lethal at FPSs too...

Although, if they support a controller, I will sit down and play them, single-player at least. Just finished Crysis on the PC, which ran better than I expected, using the 360 wired pad.

I've been picking up the bargains on Steam recently. I've spent less than £35 since about February, and got Bioshock, Red Faction Guerilla, Tomb Raider Legend, Dirt, Race 07, STCC2, Battlefield 2 Complete, Crysis, Far Cry, the Commandos series, Medieval II, Civ IV and all its expansions, and Dawn of War 2 with Chaos Rising. Keep an eye on the weekend, midweek and daily deals there as you can pick up some gems.

If you want another RTS I would highly highly recommend Sins of a Solar Empire. Its a 4X RTS, so it can takes ages to do things and my usual player v AI games can last up to 10 hours (not at once, I save constantly)

You start off with 1 planet and have to build your empire by researching and colonisation. You zoom in from a close up planet view to see you buildings like hangers and outposts, and can then zoom all the way out until all you see is however many stars you have on the map. Each star can consist of up to 20 planets I think. It can be huge, and having to form alliances with the AI or being at war with them is awesome.

I ahve always wanted to go online with it, but unless it was someone I would know I wouldn't get a full game in.

I also didn't play FPSs on my old PC as my mouse and keyboard weren't up to scratch to play them well. My new PC has a gaming keyboard/mouse all ready for BF3 Very Happy

I love Sins of a Solar Empire, but I don't think its realistically a multiplayer game. Like you said, the games last hours which is fine when playing against the AI where you can save and come back to it later, but I can't imagine sitting through an entire round against other people.

I haven't actually played it online, but from what I understand if you and however many people play the game online you can save the game and come back to it as long as everyone is online at the same time, just like Homeworld 2. The tricky part is making sure everybody is online at once.

I'll need to get Homeworld 2 instelled again, it was so incredible. I loved building parts onto ships and when you had battle using the cruisers you could detroy individual parts to cripple their engines or weapons.

Can I ask how you get a wired xbox controller to work on the pc? I'm thinking of purchasing a wired controller and I hear you need to install a driver or something. Also, would you recommend either the official xbox wired controller or the madcats version? Reason being that they're selling the official wired controller for £16 on play.com

If you buy and official MS Xbox controller that is wired then once you plug it into the PC the drivers will pick themselves up automatically as it is a signed MS device. If it is one of those "Wired Xbox controller for PC" branded ones (which is just the same as a standard wired one) then it may come with an installation CD with the drivers on it. The instructions will have it all in detail for you anyway. I would go for an official MS one at that price.

Ta very much chaps! Very Happy

Also, I've just checked again (properly this time) on play.com and it's not £16 new, it's used. So I shall look elsewhere. D'OH! But it's £17.99 off the HMV website.

Personally I'd go for the Overclockers option, possibly with a larger hard drive, or if you can, get a small SSD for your OS and programs (Office/Photoshop etc) to run off - you'll notice a significant performance boost, and they're silent (no moving parts).

Step 2 would be purchase the following:

Battlefield 3
SWTOR
Sim City (the new one that's not out yet but looks A - mazing!)

I've heard good things about them too, though I bought mine, and subsequent upgrades from Novatech (who I'd highly recommend too).
