I think it's Eastlink. I'm in a medium sized town and a while ago they made these big promos to attract customers, which worked. And bottlenecked the lines, but since we aren't a huge major city, they don't care to upgrade. And not much competition means less reasons to care.

Network cable fixes it, the PS4 connected to it doesn't have these issues (can't get access to it). And Chromecast doesn't work well either, when plugged into the TV that sits beside the router.

Its one of those reasons I stopped online gaming. I've gotten used to the set it and forget it downloading on Steam because of these issues. Not much else I can do. But its times like this that it becomes a major issue.
Been there, done that. Another reason for competitions. I only have one/1 affordable broadband option where I live: Cable. I cannot get DSL, FIOS, etc.

Well, I have Bioshock Infinite and run Linux, and am now currently installing Bioshock Infinite for Linux.

Now to see if there is an executable file... (I'll tell you after all 17 gigs are downloaded...)

*edit* Misread it, it's 14.8 gigs..
"And then?"

And then I remember just how much my internet speeds sucked...
"And then?" Also, how bad? No caps I hope!

That looks unbelievably bad. I think I just threw up in my mouth a little.

One of those rare times Cutter and I agree. Cameron was done after 2, and everything since has been pretty poor. The TV series was the best of the bunch. (Which is why, of course, they cancelled it.)
Blame FOX again!

What good mods are there?

If you don't use Steam's Workshop this is a good website for mods: Runic's Fan Site.

I haven't played for a while, but there is everything from skins to conversions to new character classes. Same for the second game.

I have heard that the "Wulf Mod Pack" is good for first time players. Smooths out the rougher edges of the game but doesn't drastically change things. You can find it under mod packs on the above linked page.
Thanks. I would want to try full mod packs when I have time. I didn't get Torchlight 1 from Steam.

My backlog is, so far, winning the battle this year. Usually I buy stuff even though my backlog is ridiculously long. This year seems to be different for some reason. I have less time to play than in previous years, so that is probably part of it. I have some really well reviewed games in my backlog, which is probably a bigger part. I haven't played Dishonored yet, for example.

I don't have time to play games anymore... It's actually starting to affect my mood...
Me too, and I don't even have a woman and still am a single virgin! I struggle to visit BN!! :O

Yes, a Linux version would be very nice to have. If they are building a Mac version then I assume that the 3D engine for that will use OpenGL. If that is correct then a Linux version should not be a massive job.
David and his team said there weren't any plans when I asked about it at E3 2014. Definitely Windows and then Mac OS X ports. See my http://aqfl.net/node/11029 for the details.

I'm not sure when it happened, but Star Citizen went from "the more I hear about it, the more I wish I had thrown money at it" to "the more I hear about it, the more I'm GLAD I kept my money".
That happens a lot. That is why I don't bother. I'll just wait for the finished products.

Rad(ical)! I bought it for giggles. Now, I officially own the original game for free and legally. Wait, no Linux and Mac OS X ports? Will I play it? Probably not. I already played an online emulated one/1, and I sucked! I'd rather play the new one like at E3 2014 with the Frontier Development team! Only if I had free time. I barely came here.

And a Linux port!

And DRM free!

Though I highly doubt all of the above.
Yep.
