Also, one quick correction: When discussing Steam’s Family Sharing Plans, we stated that you could play a game shared with you as long as that game was not being accessed by the owner at the time. It is actually the WHOLE LIBRARY which must be open for you to play a game. So if you’re playing a shared game from somebody else’s library, and the owner jumps on to play any other game, you still have to quit. Still, it’s a cool feature that a lot of people aren’t aware of.
Our Unknown Hosts show for the week of July 12th-July 18th 2015! This week, we cover several topics in the world of games and comic book adaptations! Topics and timecodes are below, along with links to where you can find the Comic Con trailers online!
