    Just curious: "C&C 3 + DLC" means "Command & Conquer 3 + Kane's Wrath"? I couldn't figure out the abbreviation and that's the only thing that comes to my mind.

    Don't Starve is a pretty fun game. Haven't played it in awhile but enjoyed it when I did.

    Last three games I bought from Steam would not run. Checked the stats and my equipment should run them. Posted questions on Steam that were never answered. Not sure what happened to them, they USED to be very reliable and customer friendly .... now just looks like another money grab!

    Enjoy, that's my favorite RTS game. And it happens that I've been playing it offline these days after more than a year without touching it, I just had the sudden desire to play it again.

    Replace your water-cooled potato and get a toaster, or a hamster powered device.

    When you read the minimal requirements, those are the 640x480 resolution requirements.

    My system is way above the minimum requirements, but thanks for the cute reply ... I hear that from my grandkids!

    The specific games would be the question.. One thing I look at is to first be sure the game doesn't require another front end like Uplay or Origin, even though it's in Steam. I don't get those and all too often those are issues; still I have 447 games in my library and every single one of them works properly.

    Sorry Steam. I'm too busy playing Dragon Age Inquisition. Maybe I'll be finished it for any Christmas Sale you might have. Maybe.

    Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm for $10 each. On Origin got Rayman Origins, Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Deluxe, Assassin's Creed III Deluxe, Bulletstorm, Far Cry 3 Deluxe and Splinter Cell Conviction Deluxe all for $19. Guess Steam will have to try much harder with its Winter Sale for me.
