I know I'm skipping a week, but I cant make 5/28. Someone else will need to take lead on that.

Anyone want to try Steel Division this weekend??

Thanks! Added it. Just 1 day left fyi. Steam summer sale is coming in June too. Good time to stockpile games. Not sure if I'll ever get to them all, but anyways.

I have not had a chance to play SD since it's release. I'm really itching and I hope we can get a 2v2 game or something going.

Great games guys - Got our butts stomped by the AI a few times and had one success in Company of Heroes.

Aphro is hoping a 4th person commits to some Steel Division!

Beyond that I am good for next week! I think Industrious is in as well. Stu, Stylin, Alt?

I will probably sit out Steel Division. I'm old, and can only handle so many games rolling around in this cob-webby brain these days :)

Well for those of us who have it we can play some 2v2 games and see if it's any good. On its face I think it looks like a great game. Will record some videos for you and convince you otherwise if it is.

Lukesea has it although he can't play past 11 PM GMT. So we just need a volunteer or two willing to expend capital!

In regards to COH2 in my major lag issues here are its minimum requirements:

Memory: 2GB RAM.
Processor: 2Ghz Intel Core2 Duo or equivalent.
Graphics: 512MB Direct3D 10 capable video card (GeForce 8800 GT or Radeon HD 2900XT)
OS: 32bit Vista.
Internet: Broadband Internet connection.
Hard Drive: 30GB free Hard disc space.

Versus my gerryrig:

Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 12.0 GB
Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz, 4001 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
Name NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970
OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Home
Name [00000000] Broadcom BCM43142 802.11 bgn Wi-Fi Adapter
Free Space 1.25 TB (1,376,702,828,544 bytes)

So obviously that's not the problem. My Wi-Fi connection has a download speed of around 80 GB, and an upload speed of something like seven or eight so I don't think that's the problem. I'm updating the drivers now, and we'll see what happens. That could very well be the problem because for some reason Nvidia experience got uninstalled.

Situational report update:
Loaded it up again and for some reason the settings are back at maximum, and antialiasing is at medium. I turned those all down to lowest so not sure how they were reverted back. Perhaps when I reinstalled the Nvidia driver. Weird! Anyways, driver isupdated so we'll see how it performs in MP.

Did you crank down the Anti-aliasing to off? That should do it according to the internet.
