I thought I'd try and get into PC gaming this winter break so I went and bought Star Wars: Best of PC for $40. It's a little pricey by my standards (broke-ass college student) but it had Empire at War, Knights of the Old Republic, Battlefront, Jedi Knight II: Jedi Academy, and Republic Commando so I think it was worth it...until I found something out about my laptop that I hadn't known.
It has no 3D graphics card...meaning I can't play any of the games.
I looked up how much one of those costs and I can say with full confidence that I simply can't afford one. I already paid what little disposable income I had left on this pack of games so I'm left with a $40 collection of games I can't play. I tried to find a way around it, and I did after a little bit of research, but when I start up the game...well...it lags so horribly that it's practically a slide show. So yeah, I just wasted $40.
