    Any Steam users out there? I figured since people have threads for Xbox and PS3 gamertags, that we should get a group going for the PC.

    What are you guys currently playing?

    I'm hooked on Borderlands 2 right now. But my Steam library has around 150 games in it so I'm down to play whatever.

    What have you all picked up during this sale so far? I really am hoping Skyrim and all of the Fallouts go on some sort of Daily sale.

    I think i'm done buying for right now, I'm trying to upgrade my computer atm. For anybody that knows, i'm upgrading my gpu from a ATI radeon 5570 to either a 5870 or a 6870. Does anyone have experience with either, or is there another card I should be looking at?

    my specs: AMD XII 955 BE 3.2 ghz, 8gb of ram, 500w thermalite or something PSU.

    ok so I have an old school macbook, and use steam to buy Football Manager and I got Civilization.

    I bought FM13 the other day, and it won't load. Pretty sure it's because my OS isn't the updated. I'm on version 10.5.8. Anyone got any idea? tia

    Well after my second attempt to play Planetside 2....I have been hit with the password reset bug

    We currently have a limit on the number of times you can reset a password within a 24-hour period. The account in question has reached the maximum permitted number of resets and must wait until tomorrow to reset again.

    I just recently put in a Radeon HD 7950

    Here is a nice little site you can look at it if your money is tight. Gives their recommended Video Cards for certain price ranges.

    If it fits in your budget, get a video card with 2GB of RAM.

    You can upgrade all the way up to Mountain Lion 10.8

    Upgrade path from 10.5:

    Buy Snow Leopard (10.6). $19

    Upgrade to 10.6.8 from System Update (this installs Mac App Store)

    Go to the Mac App Store, and purchase Mountain Lion. $20

    Download and install

    Steam has some good deals today. A lot of the Elder Scrolls games are on sale, including Skyrim which is down to $29.99. Also, the complete Half-Life series is on sale as a bundle for 9.99

    I am hoping Hitman Absolution comes up again for sale. I missed it the other day. The HL series is a great deal.

    Nexus is good. Steam Workshop has some really good ones too and they are very easy to use. Just subscribe to which ones you want and they install before the next time the game starts up. Only problem with Workshop is they have a size limit so a lot of the bigger mods are on Nexus.

    Do Nexus and Steam Workshop go hand in hand or do you need to choose one or the other?
     
  34. Aussie

    Aussie Si Je Puis

    You can use mods from both. Just have to make the mods do not overlap. What I mean by that is don't use two mods that change Whiterun for instance.

    I was just kidding. But if you do have games in your inventory that you don't play you can gift them to other people, or even trade for something you know you want to play.
