    Local Gaming

    So, I recently bought a gaming laptop (Asus G50VT X5) and am installing my steam games to play when I can. I already have a gaming rig, and I play most the games there but I want the laptop for when I'm away.

    It really got me thinking-- what If a friend wanted to play black ops or team fortress 2 with me, but didn't have a steam? Could we both me logged onto mine and do a private match or both be playing? Anything like that? Obviously you can't. But I think that would be pretty nice.. something like that..

    I know about how one person can be in offline mode and the other online but that doesn't really help, because in offline mode you can only do singleplayer.

    Consoles can split screen and both go into online games why can't PC (steam) figure something out like that?

    Yeah TF2 is F2p now, but has some issues, might get lucky not to deal with them.
    Apart that, if thats the game, create a new account and its done. If not, ask in Steam Forumns cuz I dunno, I stopped using steam to play

    Yeah I forgot about TF2 being free but I'm talking about games that aren't free. And yes @Diminished That's what I mean.

    I've always wondered this, too.
    I suggest asking them people over at Steam.

    I'm not sure how what would work. But it would be nice if you could though. I'll try looking it up for you.


    Forfeit the game, before somebody
    else takes you outta the frame.
    And puts your name to shame
    Cover up your face, you can't
    run the race the pace is too fast
    You just won't last.

    Feel free to add me to either:
