I recently discovered this article on GameSpot, “Four Ways You Can Make Steam Better Right Now,” and I strongly believe it’s worth reading. https://www.gamespot.com/articles/four-ways-you-can-make-steam-better-right-now/1100-6507521/

Steam is my dominant platform choice at the moment. I’m struggling to remember the last time I played a console game. It’s been long time! I have plenty of them lying around, but I’ve been exclusively focused on PC gaming for quite a while now. I’ve come to the conclusion that my console gaming ended with the Wii U.

I know little of current consoles, but I believe they are powerful and expensive. Well, that is except for the Switch, which... Read All



If you are looking for the best shooting online PC game , you can choose Destiny 2. The graphics quality is good, the story is also interesting to follow.
Destiny 2 itself has actually been released since 2017. Interestingly, now this PC online game can be played for free.
There are two modes that you can try. The two modes are Player versus Environment (PvE) and Player versus Player (PvP).
In PvP mode, you and your friends can fight against other teams. It can be two against two, three against three, up to six against six.
In PvE mode, you will complete the available stories and quests . You will meet other players and be allowed to work together in completing the game.

Seriously, watch the trailer, I bet you'll love it.

Many years ago, in high school as a huge fan of Star Trek: The Next Generation I was quite enthralled by the Holodeck. If you’re unfamiliar, the Holodeck is a room people could go into, but it wasn’t just any room. The Holodeck was pretty much a 100% realistic virtual reality where many characters spent some of their leisure time. It was an awesome place, everything was real, even the possibility of death, if safety protocols were disabled.

Since I’ve considered myself a writer pretty much my whole life, I was inspired by this and thought of writing a story about something similar. My thoughts were that if that... Read All


These days, if you're looking for a movie (including documentaries) or a TV show to watch, you can bypass your local cable or sat. dish services by checking out one of many video streaming services. Most likely, you're already familiar with Amazon Prime, Disney+, Hulu, Netflix, and more. However, there are actually video streaming services that you can watch for free. I found a great article from where I get my daily dose of gaming (and pop media) news from that I thought I'd share w/ you. It seems, many of these services contain ads, but there is at least one of which you can pay for to remove the ads. Some don't even require you to sign up for an account. Many of... Read All


The Steam Winter Sale is going on, which also means it's time to vote for your favorite games in different categories. While doing so, I noticed I had two gifts in my inventory, so I suggest you take a look at yours. In the main Steam window, you can go to your user name (mine is GregoPeck for instance) and click on "inventory." If "gifts" isn't listed, click the drop down menu button and check for that section. Keep the gifts or send them to your friends. Happy gifting (or collecting)!!

*Edit* I just tried to look for this using the instructions I gave you and now I find it difficult to find the gifts section, whereas before it was quite easy for some reason (maybe... Read All


If you're a PC enthusiast like me and you play some video games that are quite demanding of your hardware, then chances are you're probably interested in keeping an eye on the temperatures inside your PC, particularly for your CPU and GPU. This is important, because these components can get very hot and without proper cooling, they will not last very long. Monitoring temperatures is actually easy with MSI Afterburner, but the software is capable of so much more!

This recommendation is based upon a comparison between MSI Afterburner and EVGA Precision X1. Amazingly, you MSI Afterburner doesn't care what GPU you're using, it will work with it. It doesn't matter if you... Read All


I've been playing Red Dead Redemption 2 a lot since I bought it during the Steam Summer Sale and I absolutely love it. However, it's not a perfect game. Though, what is? I've spotted some bugs and I thought I'd report them, so that they'd hopefully get fixed. This isn't the first time I've stumbled into bugs in a game. My experience, however, has changed a bit though.

One of the best ways to report a bug in a game is to capture video of it. Then, you can upload it to YouTube and send the video's URL along w/ the bug report. This I think kind of helps eliminate confusion during the bug report process and it also proves that you are experiencing the issue. You can... Read All


You've got to see this, it's brilliant! Every Star Wars movie has the wrong title, here's how each movie should really be titled (making the titles actually obviously relevant to the plot). This will only take one minute of your time, it's a MUST see! Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments. I think this makes a whole lot of sense!

https://www.pcworld.com/article/3545909/microsoft-releases-the-windows-10-may-2020-update.html

Above is the headline that it was released but even after checking for updates, I still have build 1909, so maybe it hasn't been completely distributed yet.

However, I read the article below and it sounds very interesting. It sounds like Microsoft is now accepting Linux into Windows. I think this is unexpected. This could mean one may not have to have separate computers for Windows and Linux. It also seems like they work together. I thought this was interesting enough to share.

The article has details about other pieces of the May 2020 Update, too, so go check it out. As for... Read All
