I've only played SpaceChem, the other ones look far too mind bending for me.

Got a £10 Steam voucher from my in-laws. It's from a site called Mobiletopup.co.uk which I've never heard of. Anyone know if it's legit? Evidence found on Google seems to say it is but I'm very wary about entering codes in Steam from places I'm unsure of.

What are you worried about? It will either work or it won't, it isn't like you are installing something with a potential virus attached.

Yes?

Haven't Steam banned accounts though for using non legit game codes that have been purchased from dodgy sites?

I think you have answered your own question.

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

Tried playing PUBG tonight but it's a laggy, piece of gooseberry fool. Completely unplayable. Which is a shame as I think I'd love it otherwise. Going to request a refund and buy something else.

That'll be your PC then, there's a bit of rubber banding at the very start of the new map (bug), but outside of that it's flawless for me.

I'm going to re-buy it once my refund clears and try a few things that I've read online to improve performance. My PC should be capable of running it without any problems so I'm hoping I can sort something as it really was fun inbetween the lag.

From what I've read PUBG is pretty poorly optimised on both PC and Xbox, but then it is still Early Access.

It's not early access on PC anymore. It released this week and it runs 100x better.

Is this your PC then?

Fez is like 70p on steam. It would be rude not to.

Do we still have a thread for PC Hardware? Came into a bit of cash just before Christmas and a new PC is calling my name. Looking to get some ideas for what's a decent build these days.

Check out some of our stuff!

I think the hardware thread is in off topic.

Just be aware that hardware prices are pretty bloated at the moment when it comes to RAM and GPUs

I've just started playing Snakebird and my god is it ridiculously hard, six levels in and I'm stuck already, the LocoRoco style visuals lure you into a false sense of security.

This could get stressful.

Probably the biggest juxtaposition of cutesy graphics to difficulty I've ever experienced. Think I only finished like a dozen levels :lol:

Found it. Cheers man.

Yeah I'd been hearing that. Seems bitcoin miners have been pushing the prices of GPUs up. Wankers.
