I was never to much into WWII games, but i did play BF1942/CoD2 alot.  I recently got my hands on a copy of NFS Carbon. My personal view is that this is the best of the series. Really nice to get a break from more serious racing games. Just floor the pedal and race to the limits and beyond.  ;D

WWII games are my favorite. I like how CoD3 has the more CoD: Finest Hour feel to it. CoD2: Big Red One was a great game but it just didnt feel right ya know? its not chaotic enough...and way way way too linear. CoD3 is great though.

Yes, definitly get it...(if you still can)...Viggen, are you going to buy it for the ps2? because thats what I have. And does anyone know if the PS3 online version of CoD3 maps are bigger than the PS2 version of online?

I have a router and stuff with Armstrong (Zoom) internet and a wireless connection thing but do you think that my comp usually 36, 48, and 54 MBPS. But I dont have a graphics card and special stuff. Heres its specs:


330 Intel Celeron D Proccessor 330


120 GB Hard Drive


256MB DDR SDRAM


Intel Graphics Extreme 3D


Is all of this stuff fast enough to download games and play them and stuff? what do you guys use?

Its enough to play online, but if you want to "speed" up you pc a little bit. I suggest that you get at least 1Gb of SDRAM. It will make your pc work more stable. A new graphicscard could also be in place. Try to find one with 256Mb or above.

The graphic-card issue is always a pain in the butt. There is so many diffrent on the market. The latest cards support DirectX 10, that is what i would aim for. But since they are so new, they cost a fortune.  :)

Yeah, I can already play online with my PS2 and its pretty cool but I want to play BF2 and CoD3 and games like that online with the computer because of bigger maps and more vehicles and stuff like that. Thanks Viggen.

Onlinegaming is a bit special. It is important to have a good rate of both up and download-speed.  Since you are playing on big maps, there is alot of information that will be passing between you and the server. When there is not sufficent rate of information being traded, then you have that well known "lag".

For example: I have 2Mbit up and 2Mbit down. Lower then this would probably get you in trouble on 64 player maps. I get a little "lag" sometimes, but it helps if i turn my firewall off.

My specs.
Processor: Pentium4 650, 3.4 GHz
Hard drive: 200 GB SATA
Video card: XFX GeForce 7800GT 256Mb PCI-Express.
RAM: 1 GB

Oh, man i didn't see C&C!!! Played every single mission right through and i can't withdraw my vote...  :'(

Call of Duty beats Grand Theft Auto, Grip. Interesting chat you guys have running here, though...
