Just Cause 2 on Steam hanging on “Preparing to Launch”

I’ve been playing Just Cause 2 for a bit. I went a few days without switching on my desktop. I wanted to get back to playing the missions today, so I launched the game on Steam and it hangs on “Preparing to Launch.”

From what I’ve googled around, people have recommended verifying local game cache. So I tried that, and thats hanging too!

  • How do I find out what version my Skyrim is patched to?
  • What use are Steam Trading Cards?
  • How can I force Steam to install Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 from disk, NOT from web?
  • Skyrim crashes as soon as I boot up into the menu. How do I fix this?
  • Turn off Steam Controller without using big picture mode
  • How can I get the Sims DLC from Steam to work with the Origin version of the base games?
  • Anybody have any ideas? Can I just reinstall the game without my progress disappearing? Any other potential remedies?
