    FIXED** Computer is Freezing Whenever Steam ( and only Steam) is Launched

    This one is just weird. We just noticed it this week, and it is affecting the machine in my sig (not other PC in the house has Steam). It was first noticed yesterday when my son was playing CS:GO. It has now gotten to the point where I can just start steam and let it sit for a minute, and the...

    Nioh: Complete Edition - coming to PC on Nov 7th.

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/485510/Nioh_Complete_Edition___Complete_Edition/ Had no idea this was happening. Awesome game for those who enjoy the Souls series of games. This game was a reason to buy a PS4 imo, like Bloodborne or TLOU, but scratch that since it's now coming to PC! :D

    Anyone play PUBG?

    I'm a 37 year old father of two and far far removed from the days of Statcraft, CS, and DoD in the late 90s early 00s. So it was time to build a new work computer and I went overboard, naturally, with intentions of playing PUBG. Been playing for a couple of weeks and not knowing anyone makes...

    Oxygen Not Included - Early Access game from the makers of Don't Starve

    https://www.kleientertainment.com/games/oxygen-not-included Has anyone been playing this? I'm really enjoying it, quite a bit more than Don't Starve in fact. It's a 2D base-builder where you're stuck miles below the surface of an alien planet and you have to mine, farm, build, etc. The main...

    RimWorld anybody?

    I didn't see any threads on this. I never played Dwarf Fortress, which I gather the game is heavily "inspired" by, but it's an interesting combination of The Sims and MineCraft, I guess. I played quite a bit this weekend, even reaching endgame, with a stable, sustainable, and easy to defend...
