Who in their right mind would wanna hack into origin, they would only find outdated accounts that haven't been used since they've been opened.
What if there are games in it?

There should have been a free game to make it higher like Christmas 2013 to crash its server. Actually, did that day even hit a new record too?

I love how the comments on that turned into a retarded slap fight between youtubers and redditors.

Dear sweet holy Jesus this game looks amazing. Only problem is, I'm so old that playing it might give me a heart attack.

Hey, have you played Alien Isolation? You really should. I think you'd like it. Devilish

What are you using as the client Blue? I doubt the original .exe works with Windows, but thats just an assumption.

For convenience I picked up a copy on Steam, which seems to work fine, except for the vertical mouse dealie. I may get inspired to pick up one of those more modern ports again though, as while I am not a graphics whore, the 320x200 resolution of the original is pretty horrible on a big monitor.
I can't stand the pixels anymore. I like Doomsday Engine: http://www.dengine.net/ ...

I love the higher resolution, dynamic lighting, mouselook and all the other things that perk it up, but I seem to have a real problem with various incompatibility issues and glitches adding on model packs and the like.

That said, I still own my copy of THE ULTIMATE DOOM, so happy birthday, game that gave me so much pleasure.
Yeah. I still haven't seen any other projects that are better or the same so far.

wow....where does the time go....

Kids and women, sigh. Women especially always find a way to fill time, they can't just be doing nothing.
I don't have a woman and baby goats (oh, the human type -- children). I just don't have the time and energy like I used to. I am struggling to keep up online. I need to retire, but have a long way to go (hint: I was still in high school when DOOM 1 shareware came out and couldn't play it on my IBM PS/2 Model 30 286 10 Mhz desktop PC!). DOOM got me addicted when I got my custom built 486 DX2/66 desktop PC. I even made two/2 DOOM II mod(ification)s: http://zimage.com/~ant/antfarm/files/doom2/j2doom/j2doom.html ...

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.
