Related to the question: How can I check if my machine will be able to run a game?
The website, Can You Run it?, will compare your system components to the requirements for most published games.

Sometimes I even want to know just because I'm getting a little tired of the game and I want to have a sense of whether or not I'm nearing the end, so I can decide whether to tough it out or pack it in. What are some good ways of determining how long a given game takes
I've been using MotionInJoy for quite a while in order to use my PS3's controller as a gamepad, but have never been able to overcome a very serious issue I'm having with this setup. I never shut my computer down, as I prefer to have it hibernate (I'm on Win7 64-bit, by the way). However, whenever I hibernate my machine with my PS3 controller plugged in after having used it as a gamepad, I am always greeted by a blue screen of death when turning my machine back on.

I cannot go into multiplayer mode in Crysis 2! I recently bought Crysis 2 Maximum Edition on Steam. I also registered at Mycrisis. But I cannot get into the multiplayer mode. I always get an error message to check my internet connection, while everything is fine with my internet connection. Can someone help me please?
