Is it still alive? Are people still playing, it would be awesome if they are!

Thank you!

And would this computer run it?

I have no idea about MP but I'm quite sure it should run smoothly at it's native resolution, but I wouldn't have high hopes for newer games.

Does anyone know about the multiplayer?

I'm not much of a MP person myself but I do play on occasion. I was easily able to find games with no problem a week or 2 back. This is a brutal MP btw. :D Just brought it up to check for you and I'm showing 249 servers and 449 players online currently.



PS: I don't guarantee ping though that depends on your local.

I was looking at this chart: http://www.notebookcheck.net/Mobile-Graphics-Cards-Benchmark-List.844.0.html

It says, you'll get 8-127 FPS in FEAR, also it shows it's about 5 times slower than my GPU (Quadro 16000m) and I get constant 60FPS at max setting with 1680*1050. I'd say it'l will work at its 1366*768 resolution with low graphics.

All he has to do is download the FEAR1 demo from someplace like Fileplanet and see how it runs. No need to guess. I think, it's been a long while since I played the demo, that the demo has the performance test thingy in it also. He can run that and it will give his High/low/avg. Then run the demo and see if he can live with it until he has a more powerful rig.

I'm still pissed off at the FEAR community for abandoning Project Origins; no, it didn't have dedicated servers or that it's game play wasn't as smooth as 1 but it was still a good game. T_T

You can't blame the fans for not supporting a game that doesn't have dedicated servers, doesn't have anti-cheat and isn't as good as the previous version.

Hey guys, steam has encouraged me to look into PC gaming :)

I would like to purchase a PC with pretty good capabilities, how does this look?

Thanks for your help guys!

I wouldn't grab it, I don't like the idea of two graphic cards in new PC, it's cool to add another one later on, when first one doesn't suffice any more but to have two in the beginning is just weird.

At first I thought it looked alright but my god, the graphics cards SUCK. They're HD3450's which are from the legendarily bad 3k serious AND they're low end cards at that. Would recommend against that computer.
