Oh puh-lease! Harper's "fight" with the telcos and cabecos is all smoke and mirrors. We have the exact same problems as the US with virtual monopolies/duopolies Canadians have less choices in everything comparatively!

No it wasn't all smoke and mirrors. You're right that we do have a problem with monopolies, and duopolies. The difference is that the government heard what the people were saying when the CRTC was going to let them get away with it, and in turn threatened the CRTC to strip away their mandate control of the internet and hand it over to Industry Canada. Remember: It was the CRTC that wanted to let Bell, Rogers, Telus, etc., set the band rates for everyone else to make it unprofitable. It was the CRTC that was going to let them get away with it. It was companies like Teksavvy, Vmedia, Ebox that fought tooth and nail along with consumers to make sure that UBB(that's bandwidth caps) didn't get forced on everyone using aggressive billing policies by the incumbents.

But if you're overpaying by that much, maybe you should be looking at a TPIA. There are plenty of them, my internet now costs exactly what I was paying ~12 years ago, and is faster. It's also $25/mo cheaper then what I was paying for in Florida with Brighthouse, and faster.

Be wary that there is a report going around that Denuvo absolutely fucking trashes SSDs with thousands and thousands and thousands of writes. No idea if it's true, I never saw the original report, but until I know for sure, I'm keeping it on my HD.

It does take a LONG time to load things from a HD though...
If that's the case then they become libel for hardware damage, a elua doesn't protect you from shit like that.

Load speeds 6/10.

How often do you need to load?
Whenever you zone transition. Sometimes it can be a lot, sometimes not. But before I tossed it on my old SSD(2nd gen), I had more than a few cases where the load times were nearly 2 mins. On there, under 30 seconds.

Any of you bastiges jump the gun with a VPN yet? Gotta admit, it's getting hard not to cave given all the positive feedback on this one so far. Anyone purchase it through a VPN?

Yep, mine is unlocked via a VPN but my sister bought mine from GMG for me. I'll give the game and content a solid 8/10. Combat 7/10, music/sound 9/10, graphics 9/10. Load speeds 6/10.

I've had two hard locks of the game, but I'm not sure if it's simply the game or not. I'm more likely to place blame on the beta drivers I'm using, and all that. Mantle support is good though, picked up a easy 5-15fps over all with it as well. Haven't tried multiplayer yet because she's not off work for another 2hrs, but she's got 5 days off starting at midnight CST, so we'll probably get a few games in tomorrow.

The tactical camera is a bit...funky. Don't like the way they've changed the tactics system either. But I've only got 3hrs in, so who knows. I'm still using LR mouse button to try moving at times, and so my character will randomly start attacking the air.

Edit; Tossing in, just moved the game to my SSD. Makes a hell of a difference with load times.

Digital immigrant huh? I guess that's why they're all using technology built from 1960-'84 that gave them the internets.

Yeah, no. You can't make the case that despite controlling the top officers and the budget that they are somehow powerless. Not after all the other depts with similar legacy that have been gutted and rebuilt. If you don't like the way things are now it's because the people the govt hired to run it aren't doing their job.
You do know how crown corps work right? There's always a handler, a go-between with the "top officers and everyone else" telling them that "it's always been done this way, and so on." And they "shouldn't rock the boat." Welcome to the CBC, CRTC, and if you live in Ontario the LCBO.

The conservative govt controls the CBC purse strings and it's board of directors were completely replaced with conservative loyalists. If you have issues with it talk to your boss.
Yeah that doesn't really mean shit, the board of directors is about as useful as the crown chair at the CRTC doing a proper job instead of the miles of bureaucracy under them, where decades of industry insider have stacked them.

Every time someone goes to cut the CBC's funding, the libs and ndp throw a hissy fit over it. The CBC served a purpose, once, long ago, when there was no one else willing to setup transmitters in the asshole of nowhere. Not the case anymore.

You can use a VPN to get it unlocked. Plenty of people have already done so according to Bioware's forum. These people are also going to be playing Monday morning, as they'll just pretend to be in Japan or something.
Yeah you can, and origin support has already stated that it's perfectly fine to do so. Anyone who really wants to dig into it can just hit the /r/dragonage sub and take a search on it.

Yup. Sean Penn and Alec Baldwin, too. Some people come across as well nuanced. Adam Baldwin comes across as well read but a complete and total ass. Must run in the Baldwin name...
Oh don't worry, I'm sure that you're still happily cheering the anti-gg side that created a block list of 15k people, because they didn't want to hear the otherside of the argument. Remember that whole "which side really wants dialog on the problems..." yep it's not them.

Peh. Kyders law is based on physical disks, as more fabs move to NAND things will change, just like they did from single platter low density to single-high, double low-double high.
