It was slower and less useful to create classes than in-game, and it never gave the stats you wanted to see or presented them in a way you wanted to view them.
Yeahh but did you see the fish Ai in Ghost? That was some amazing shit man.

I've been using unblockus for a while but recently switched to https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/ because they are cheaper.

They appear to be pretty good, how is bandwidth over these services? Can they max out a good Internet connection (55Mbit)?

It's rather bullshit that their 6 month deal is just a few bucks cheaper than their 12 month one. I'm sure I'm supposed to think that the 12 month deal is great value but it just looks like they've inflated the 6 month one to trick us.
They've had a sale during the holidays, the 12 months sub was around $20 iirc.
I am only using it for Netflix and it works fine, the stream kicks up to 1080p usually shortly after I start a movie.
I don't think you can max out your connection but for streaming media like Netflix or Pandora it works fine.
I did not try to stream with multiple devices at the same time, and I did have some bad days when Netflix disconnected but it was very rare and not a usual thing.
I think it had more to do with my actual internet connection then the VPN service.
I have the DNS set in the Playstation 3 setting not at the router level.
THere are a few TV shows on Netflix Canada that my wife likes to watch so the iPad is connected to the CDN Netflix and the PS3 is on the US, because usually when we sit down to watch a movie together the US has a better selection.

News Comments > StarDrive 2 Announced

There was also a tons of complaints on the forum about the dev did not complete the game as some promised features were not implemented, he called the game feature complete and moved onto other things (obviously working on SD2)
However he was still putting out patches for StarDrive so not sure why all the outcry.
I believe this is a 1 man show type developer.
Not sure if the dev team grew for SD2 or if it is still just him.

Can't you login to Steam via VPN and get it unlocked?

I'm a PC gamer that can tinker a bit.. but no idea how this VPN trick works and I'm afraid that if I try it something happens with my connection.. and without internet, one cannot breathe.
It is not that complicated. However I am not sure how well Steam handles this sort of thing.
All it does is redirects your IP so Steam thinks you are in the US so the game gets unlocked, then you reset the IP to your homeland again and can play the game.
I use a VPN for Netflix so I can access US movies as the CDN Netflix sucks balls to say the least.

Edit: I forgot most paid VPN services offer a free trial and a very detailed explanation on their website with step by step instructions on how to set everything up.
My only worry is will Steam find this legal or will they flag your account. You may want to do some research on it.
I know a lot of people are doing this to unlock games early.

Any news of a freelook mode (ability?) inside of the cockpit?
Elite Dangerous has that "feature"

As for X-Rebirth at least they are working on the game and not on a DLC or next title.

Is there really a market for this sort of game?
I mean I am getting spammed on facebook with all sorts of browser strategy games.
Ubi should just stick with making normal games none of this free to play browser game non sense.

Having all sorts of frame rate issues in AS2. The first missions seem to be fine but the second mission with the snow map is like a slide show.
Hope they will improve the performance for the final release.
Also the difficulty ramps up pretty good.
Classic Men of War

It sounds like TB is getting a lot of criticism for his Thief video. He just posted this on his channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HpmeOB0Zyu0

While I sometimes have trouble listening to TB for extended periods of time, I definitely share very similar opinions on games.
Same here.
Usually the things he criticize are valid problems with games, but he has a tendency to take it a bit far sometimes and going down the whiny end of criticizing games.
With that said 99% of the time I agree with him and his verdict on games.

I'll probably watch some "lets play" vids first by people who doesn't get paid to publish their opinion to make my own conclusions

Pre-release reviews almost always slant toward the good side. 71% is pretty bad for pre-release reviews IMHO. I think I'll wait to see what TotalBiscuit or Angry Joe have to say about the game before I consider picking it up.
I've posted a link to the TotalBiscuit video below

I guess the Thief 1 giveaway was a well timed one at least.

I don't get it with some of you people. Was he supposed to work on the game for free? Did any of you buy ARMA2/DayZ? Why does it bother you so much?
I thought we were talking about the DayZ stand alone game here

Sad to see another missed opportunity, but they should have known.
Attaching a title like Thief to any game will bring a rather high expectations from the fans.
