The Guild 2 is bloody great. And ok, I might think that because I played it when I was younger, and nostalgia can dramatically shape our opinions…But I promise it has both complexity and charm.
During our Cheapest Gaming PC Challenge the guys and gals of the GameSessions team tried to make PC gaming more accessible by putting together the cheapest PC builds they could. But a PC, even our cheap ones, are just stupidly expensive boxes without peripherals. This guide will help you transform yours from a useless box into a lean mean gaming machine for as little cash as possible; including recommendations for a monitor, headset, keyboard and mouse.
Hearts of Iron III is a grand strategy game in which you take control of any nation in the world from 1936 to 1948 and try and guide them through, or away from, World War II. You’re in control of everything from the armed forces, industrial production and research through to diplomacy, politics and espionage.
The Cheapest Gaming PC Challenge has kept the GameSessions team busy for the last few weeks. We set out to see who could build the cheapest possible gaming PC capable of playing our most demanding free trials and after planning and building all four machines, we tested them to see who was the winner. It was a day of anticipation, of tension…but mainly an excuse to play games and eat cake!
You can find out how the day went and how each of the PCs performed in the video below, or check out our final results blog post for more information.
