Yeah what are you running Steam on? Say what you will about their business model, but their program runs pretty reliably for me.

I've never had problems with Steam. I have had numerous issues with Twitch and Minecraft not wanting to play nice together, and I use Twitch for nothing else. I've claimed a bunch of free "Twitch Prime" games but haven't even installed any of them yet.

Thanks - apparently I have some cache to delete or something.

I've heard the Steam overlay is prone to crashing but I don't have it enabled. Their crappy embedded Web browser can get stuck as well but that rarely causes an explicit app crash for me.

The embedded web browser is exactly the problem in my case. Steam doesn't crash, the browser they're using hangs. Luckily clearing both dl and browser cache seems to have taken the edge off the problem. I still get the 'forever loading' icon in the top right of product pages though, which is the crappy browser problem.

It's better though, so we'll see how it does going forward.

It's usually related to videos, sometimes the embedded browser chokes on them and doesn't recover without restarting Steam. The same thing happens with embedded YT videos in Steam forums.

Try unchecking the "autoplay videos" box on the product page video player.

I made a 6 linked unique bow of the perfect colour tonight using only 6 orbs.

I was happy.

This is a good league but I'm having a hell of a time coming up with a build that interests me. I started out playing Dark Pact and it's good but Skeletons are huge trolls and casting it on myself isn't gimmicky enough for me (I'm a complete Timmy). Then I tried quad totem Storm Burst for a while before remembering that totems are super boring.

Has anyone tried out any of the new traps? They look pretty badass but they're still traps so I'm dubious.

So :

Arc Trap Sabatour is Fucking awesome.

Elemental Hit Deadeye is Fucking Awesome.

Freezing Pulse Templar is Fucking Awesome.

Witch Necro Mage Skeletons is fucking Awesome.

Double Hit Champion is fucking awesome.


Basically, I'm having a BLAST in this new league and so should you.  All the old builds are better (Dark Pact Totems is, for example, wait for it, .....  Fucking Awesome) and the temple stuff is just great.  I'm loving building up to level 3 rooms and then having a blast in them with all the gimmicks.  Also, watching people corrupt all their good gear and it going 'poof'.

So.  Ask any questions if you want.  Traps are awesome.  Fucking Awesome.  To answer your question.

What game are you guys talking about? Sounds like PoE. Is there some kind of database problem causing posts to get added to the wrong thread?

Man, I've been playing Pillars of Eternity and here you are talking about Path of Exile and fuck acronyms.

In fairness, I didn't see the point of unearthing the actual PoE thread to boast about my socketing prowess and thereafter answered the question posed.  However, if we get into build theory, I will take it to the right place.

The PoE thread is still on the first page though.

In my defense, I had no idea at the time that this wasn't the Path of Exile thread.

Two Point Hospital (aka Theme Hospital 2) coming August 29/30 (depending on timezone) for PC, Mac, Linux.

The developers for some reason claim it's *not* the spiritual successor to Theme Hospital but it is in fact such, including having an (annoying?) extermination mini-game.
