    Hi guys I'm away on a conference this weekend and I'm taking my girlfriend's laptop. It's 2 and a half years old and doesn't have a gfx card.

    What games would you recommend? I was think Red alert 2 and worms 2 would be quite good.

    Sol Survivor (available on steam) is an EXTREMELY addictive tower def game. It even has multiplayer and global rankings. I've got way more value out of this than any AAA title I've bought in the last year.
