    Welcome to the TOG public STEAM forum!


    Welcome to Steam | Official Site

    STEAM is a digital distribution platform developed by Valve Corporation. It is used to distribute a wide range of multi-genre games and related media entirely over the internet.

    Instantly access your favorite games
    The full Steam library and all future Steam releases are at your fingertips. After you've purchased a game, download it immediately and start playing.

    Join the Steam Community
    Now it's easy to find someone to play with, meet up with friends, connect with groups with similar interests, and host and join chats, matches, and tournaments. Best of all, it's all free.

    Chat with your friends while gaming
    With Steam's "Friends" service, you can talk to your friends while you play. You can also see when they're playing games and easily join the same servers together.

    Easily browse multiplayer game servers
    Steam's integrated server browser makes it easy to navigate thousands of Internet game servers.

    Receive automatic game updates
    Hunting for patches and downloading from unorganized web sites is so twentieth-century. On Steam, your games stay up-to-date by themselves. No hassles.

    Play your games on any PC
    Once you have a Steam account, you can sign in from any PC to access your games. Your games are associated with your account, not your computer.

    Enjoy Steam-only special offers
    From pre-release discounts to free-play weekends, Steam delivers what gamers value most.
