So here is the deal:

Just got home for Easter for a couple of weeks, travelling lightly I have a suitcase full of cloths and my handy, if rather limited Phillips laptop :

- Intel Core Duo 2.00 GHz
- 4GB RAM
- NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS
- Windows....cough....cough.....Vista.....cough.....cough

The result of such a weight efficient commute has left me pants down in the game department, an opportunity, some might say, to get some much extremely necessary work done. However, there is a definitive limit to the amount of research on the East India Company's patronage of the south coast one can pursue before it becomes officially considered unhealthy.

Thus the dilemma, I require a game, a game fit for a man with limited budget and computer power. The game must meet the obvious restrictions of a laptop, but must also be available to either download directly to hard drive or be purchasable from the local Game(/station) outlet (due to the restricted length of my stay). The genre is not rigidly fixed, the absence of a joystick or wheel restricts certain options, but open minded I remain. However! a story-line of half-decent quality is a must, the staple diet of MW2 and instant Lidl noodles makes one weary of simple minded shooters. To summarise, a thinking mans game, under £20, graphics light and purchasable. Suggestions, gentlemen, are most welcome.

Try looking at the older stuff on steam, the original Fallout or XCOM games are definitely worth getting, and tend nicely to laptop play.

You can use the keys. I used to. Just a bit bouncy.
