New Computer for General 2
« on: February 09, 2012 »
My first thought was Shall buy new computer for this year or wait until General 2 Come out which is next year....

I think I going go for Desktop because simple reason is that so Upgradeable and also cheaper than Laptop

I do know Intel is the best but High End AMD is also good because it cheaper than Intel.

I was thinking of somethings like this

Gaming PC Intel Core i7 2600 Quad Core (4x 3.40Ghz)
Upto 3.8Ghz with Turbo Core
Cooler Master Elite 430 Black With Side Window PC Case
Storm Black 500Watts Power Supply
Motherboard 1155 Motherboard
Processor Intel Core i7 2600
4.0GB  DDR3 RAM (Can be upgraded)
On-Board 1GB Graphics with DVI-I, VGA
On-Board 6 Channel Audio
Samsung DVD Rewriter (Can be upgraded to Blue-Ray)

The graphics cards I would get would be Nvidia GTX 460 Cards  or ATI HD 5770 :)

I just hope EA doesnt mess it up with General 2 like they did with C & C 4 !

I'll wait until I can read a full description of the game - if it is a worthy successor, I may finally buy a decent computer.

I would allways go for a tower, I have had my tower for the last 10 years now and it has lasted me well, it's only ever had one new motherboard + one new processor + one new hard drive + one new DVD drive.. O' Ya and I replaced the power supply last week  :clap:

Just got hold of a laptop which plays the original Generals at full speed.

Now I'll watch the reviews for Generals 2 and see if it is enjoyable enough for me to get another new laptop / computer / upgrade right away.

Command & Conquer Generals 2 has no single-player campaign
Will ship as an online multiplayer game only

http://www.computerandvideogames.com/364047/command-conquer-generals-2-has-no-single-player-campaign/

That SUCK  :(

I really like what one Command and conquer fans say

"Gets back to the roots".

I want to hit them in the face and shove down my copy of First Decade down their throats and ask them if the original Command & Conquer games didn't have any campaigns.

This really, really screwed up my interest for both this game, and my last remaining hopes for this once fantastic franchise that has been so utterly bastardized by complete idiots!!!"

I didnt say that.....that what the fans say.....here the proof of the picture that I have read from computer and videogames website




I agree with fans of what they saying.... I have never heard of Commander and conquer game that doesnt have single campaign until now :(
I dont think any newbie command and conquer players going play online because they going get trash all the time and it will put them off playing it and that why single campaign is must because they can practices the game so often to get better  ::)

They can design clever ways of matching up newbies with newbies. That said, I can't stand the multiplayer obsession. It's what happens when they only look at the numbers and stop thinking about anthing else.

Going multiplayer only makes total financial sense, but we don't play games for the money...  :-\

I definitely hate the idea of multiplayer only for this game.

Still, look on the bright side, there is still the original Generals & Hamachi ...

I've been reading about this, and they've renamed it "Command & Conquer". It should be out this year, available as a downloadable title only, WITH a single player campaign.

The GLA returns, to be thwarted by Europe and the Asian/Pacific Aliance, so it should be Generals 2 in all but the name.

Here what people been saying when they played GENERAL 2

A few weeks ago, we have invited press from around the world to experience what the new Command & Conquer is all about. Every journalist had time to play on our virtual battlefield, commanding massive armies in strategic, action-packed battles against the AI, other players and in Co-Op –  All build with best-in-class technology!

“Command & Conquer looks fantastic.”   – Polygon
“I’m excited. They’re on the right track.” – PCGamer
“…the old C&C pace is back…” – Eurogamer
“Anyone who has played the old C&C strategy games will feel right at home.” – GamesRadar
“Command & Conquer is back.” – GameStar

Here a small selection of the previews that have been released this week(When you click which links you want to read!)

Yep You do and my Laptop G73 will be able handle it :)

IF You can find good gaming laptop to handle Generals 2 then you will be able play the game no problem :D

I think Game will release in round October and onward

How much are you prepare to spend on Laptop to play General 2?  £500?

This one is custom options on what you want inside the laptop(it would be better when General 2 Release then buy the laptop) :)

(looks at the screenshots - mouth falls off)

I'll start saving up. I might go for a desktop and get more power for my pound.

The specification I am looking at is:
8GB RAM
2TB HDD
Radeon HD 6450 Graphics
Quad Core 3GHz AMD CPU
Windows 7 64-Bit OEM

All for only £356.68 if I build it myself.

I might host a Windows XP VM on it, just for compatability with older software :)
