So I found this on Steam last night and jumped at the chance to get a copy. Seriously, who doesn’t want to build siege weapons and lay waste to buildings and troops? You had me at medieval siege engine. (As an aside, the Ballista, Trebuchet, and Siege Engine were my favorite parts of Age of Empires) Besiege is a physics based building game in which you construct medieval siege engines and lay waste to immense fortresses and peaceful hamlets. Build a machine which can crush windmills, wipe out battalions of brave soldiers and transport valuable resources, defending your creation against cannons, archers and whatever else the desperate enemies have at their disposal. I was only able to give this a quick once over, but it was wickedly good fun. As stated, the goal is make siege weapons to take out troops and towers.

There’s quite a bit of information about Ram Drives out there, but it seems somewhat dated. I found one combination that looks kind of interesting. It’s a free Ram Drive tool called IMDisk and a manager for Steam games called SteamTool Library Manager. I haven’t actually worked with these yet, but from what I can gather, the process works a little something like this. You first make and mount a new Ram Drive with IMDisk.

Some of this information is kind of old so who knows how reliable any of this is. I might be inclined to give this a try, since it doesn’t seem that hard. It’s not quite the automated set up […]
