Let Off Some Steam, Bennett

Illustration for article titled Let Off Some Steam, Bennett

Listen, loyalty is very touching. But it is not the most important thing in your life right now! But what is important is gravity! I have to remind you Sully, this is my weak arm! Remember, Sully, when I promised to kill you last? I lied.


Ah, Commando. Somehow I managed to watch this when I was 11 years old and not kill anyone during my teenage years. While I don't think there's any shortage of mindless movies today, I do think there's an inverse relationship between the commercial popularity of military FPSes and this type of film. In other words, Call of Duty has completely usurped the appeal of this kind of flick.

I know when I was 11, we talked about Commando the way kids talk about Call of Duty nowadays, I expect. Just with half as much profanity.

Alright, let's fight communism and buy some fuckin' video games!

Not a deal that's up here, but one that I think may be a decent offer at least. But I was wondering if someone can confirm how decent these specs are, like examples are recent high spec games it might be able to run.

It's a new Samsung laptop, and it's about £900. I need an upgrade, and Laptops are my only option.

The only thing I see as a concern - using my totally uniformed eyes - is that it only has 4GB of memory, +1 from the graphics card.

My laptop from about 3 years ago had 4GB of memory, so I don't know if this is really suitable now.
