I bought my first PC for thirty pounds off a friend who was getting a new one. It worked. Just. You had to sort of balance it against the wall at an angle and thump it if it ground to a halt. Got me through minimal schooling though, before I made some real money and bought a proper machine. Been through a few since then - costly little devils. Which is why I am looking wistfully at this star prize and wondering why on earth we are giving it to you lot.
You see, Eurogamer has teamed up with Fireglow to spread the word on Sudden Strike 3: Arms To Victory, and decided to reward one of you with the game and a brand new PC to play it on. It has all the trimmings like some Core 2 Duo professor, gangster-force 8600 graphics, two gigs of male sheep and some skinny 19" viewing window. It means you will be able to sink yourself into the cratered fields of World War II as you pick up historically accurate armaments for one of five nations: Britain, USA, Germany, Japan or Russia. The new hardware should help you get to grips with is sparkly new engine and glitzy effects on show, too.
Naturally none of you will feel like entering so we will have to think of something to do with this prize. But if you do, all that is needed is an answer to our unusually and no not maliciously difficult question below. Good luck.
While you are waiting for the results, why not pop over to our Sudden Strike 3: Arms To Victory gamepage for more information.
