Steam releases approximately one hundred million billion (give or take a zillion) games every week. So let’s help each other out: tell me what you’re playing on Steam this week and whether or not it’s any good. Let’s recommend games to each other.

Twitter is kinda terrible sometimes. It enables people of all types and backgrounds to come together and get really, really angry at each other, and somehow many of us lose hours to the damn thing every day. These talking mountains, though? They brighten the place right up.
