What sort of graphics card would I need for the new shogun game?


The first PC i posted, would that be ok for PCM '11?

I'm not too bothered about the make, Every computer I've owned has broken on me! (they call me the touch of death at work :D )

so guys i dont get it i was watching a video on youtube of the tour de france 2011 game for ps3. it looked very cool as you control one single rider and can command the team. IMO i prefer it to the pcm manager style. is the game for PC like this or is it the same manager style because i would buy it pcm 11 for PC if its like the ps3 style.
I was annoyed o find out it wasn't avilable in Australia. Or at least I couldn't find it in the PSN store.

The RAM is fine. The CPU should be enough as I tend to think modern games rely on the GPU card more then anything (what I mean is I think the CPU standard is pretty good atm).

I doubt the GMA X4500 (intergrated i think) would be great tho. Not sure on the miniment requirements but I have heard the game is some what demanding.

I would say it would struggle.

It isn't a bad priced system I guess, but if you have any experience you could build your own rig, and get a better system for that price providing you have access to the OS software. Or even go to a PC hardware store (not sure in England but we have PC stores which aren't so commercial here) and get them to build your rig for a similar price.

Don't buy from PC World. I take it you live in a city, find a local independent computer shop to custom make you a computer. Should be more afforadable as well.

Yeah independant (that was the word I was looking for in my above post) pc stores or self made rigs are the best way to go.

@tuarts can't see the site at work, apparently it is an attack site :eek:
I assume hard copy? Didn't know it would be avivable outside the PSN store.

To be honest I was just making assumption. I was under the impression the game was more short and arcade like then a full game. Not to mention that last year they had something similar on XBOX live.. Good news if it is avilable hard copy, will get on that tonight.

lol sbs..

@Izzy eviel
BTW shogun is very demanding, or so I have heard.
You would need a high end rig to play that on max graphics, but I doubt that rig couldn't even handle the standard.

It is a rather limited game, it's just solely the TDF stages and you only play 3-4 sections each stage. If you can help it, don't pay full price for the game, its really not a $80-90 game.
 
I bought the 2011 version on Amazon yesterday.

I dont play video games as much recently, but what sold me on the idea is that only through PCM will i be able to play the Crostis Zoncolan stage:D

Crostis is in the game right?

Right?:eek:

Yes it is! And it causes alot of falls in the descend of it, atleast thats what has happened to me often, it is a killer before the Zoncolan which usually isolates all the gc men if you do it correctly, besides your own with 1 domestique :).

Ruuuuuben! *turns on the oranje bat signal*

Playing '09 with PCMDaily '10 database and I'm getting ****loads of database line errors everytime I try and go into the db editor. Is there anything I can do to fix it or am I going to have to try a fresh install?

lol i decided to simulate TA.
Slagter, Kruijswijk and Mollema = all get fractures.
lol if you have Gesink in your team too and he didnt fall then the game isnt very realistic..

in my game he won the giro twice and fell once, but i still had kreuziger in second so won anyway :p

I really don't understand how to attract sponsors in this game :p or isn't that the same as in 09? and 2nd, how come that with my selfmade team I'm -200.000 € after 1 month ? :p

EDIT; found it :p clearly my budget is 400.000 € a year, not a month :p
 
Its nothing like 09.

You can't just get co-sponsors.
You have your sponsor (or sponsors) and after the sponsor contract is up you have to sign a new title sponsor (and you get a new shirt etc automatically with it!!) at the end of a season...

OMG sauce!!!!

i totally forgot about this game. i must download it now :p

D_T has PCMdaily already launched a better database?

is there any new skill points thingy this year? like in 2010 we got the prologue to add to the usual mountain, flat etc stuff. i would like to see bike handling skills and consistency added and maybe even base form level. as we know many riders perform much better then others on their base form.

Was bored, thought about creating a spectaculare and epic Custom Tour.
But then noticed that they are gone (PCM2010) :eek: :confused:

Or am I blind ?

Are they back in PCM2011 ?

No new stats :p.

Hopefully PCMDaily stats will come soon if they havent been released yet, because doing the Giro with Gesink si a ***** with 70 Stamina (uithouding :eek:).
