First off, I was not too sure of where t oput this thread in terms of technical support etc. So if i am wrong im sorry & please move it if needed.. Now I am interested in seeing what playing nba 2k12 is like, people say that its much more enjoyable than on a game console becuase of all the modifications, patches, and other goodies you have access to while playing on a PC. Now I checked if I could "run it" on my laptop, using that website that checks your systems hardware capabilities to play a certain game. Everything checked out fine/good but basically becuase I have a stock Video card it 'failed' me because of the stock video card (Intel HD Graphics 3000), sort of discouraging me to even try to play it.
BUT, other games I have, are playing on my PC have failed this "system requirement" test before but I play them currently on great settnigs even really high settnigs fine, my video card has proven to be fine for them. Games such as World of Warcraft etc. So my question is will my laptop setup be able to handle NBA 2k12 decently, on good settings, I hope I do not have to play on low low settings thats just no fun and decreases gameplay value In my opinion.
Being confident, some of you all on here may have the same or close PC set up I have, you could possibly give me a baseline answer to if I can play this game fine on my laptop. Right now I will post all my laptops specs in hopes maybe I can play this game with good settings & enjoy it almost as much as I do on my Xbox 360.
