    Have followed news of this game for some years, as I did w/Skullgirls.
    When SG went to PS3, I got it.
    Watched a playthrough of Cuphead on YouTube, so I don't need to buy it. (no X-Box).

    But for this game, I may finally get Steam. Installed it months ago, but have yet to get a PS4 controller plugged in.
    Hope to get Steam working as well.
    Been doing gaming since Pong on consoles, and arcades, and a bit of online/other games on PC (including some I worked on).

    Not Steam yet. But hope I can finally do it. Just curious if anyone else recently managed to do Steam. :)

    Unless you count eight years ago as "recent", then nah. But, you should be able to get it running fairly easily.

    I've been using Steam for over 4 years and it's been a blast!

    Steam is pretty good. I only use it to game, but they have all kinds of other stuff too.

    Thanks for the reply, and everyone else. So I plugged a PS4 controller into the front of the PC.
    Now I just pay for TfH & it should work (I hope). Steam's already installed, but it doesn't open when I double click the icon.
    Maybe I need a game.
    After paying I can use Steam forums, join groups (I think)- like the TfH one there:
    Steam Community :: Them's Fightin' Herds

    Tried joining groups, but don't think I can til I pay the Steam fee.
    Bought it & am trying to download it, but it's stuck at 0%.

    Wonder how people did it. Remotely?

    There shouldn't be a fee just to use Steam? Did you make sure you were logged in, either through the browser version or the standalone launcher?

    Thanks for the reply.
    I made a friend on Steam from the Help forums who suggested I restart the PC, then walked me through the steps to get it to work.
    Might be simple to many, but I was unfamiliar w/Steam & it was tough for me at first.

    Thanks!
    I wanted to support this indie developer for their fantastic art/animation, but have never been a PC gamer.

    The small roster doesn't bother me.
    I'm just thankful to play a fighter during the week. Usually I only play PS4 on weekends when I visit my brother.
