BW cap in Germany for a 100mbit cable connection is 1.8TB per month. But 60GB cap a day, and when you reach it they throttle "filesharing" to 100kb/s (yeah, you reading that right) and no, I didn't put that "" in out of boredom. You know what they throttle? Everything. EVERYTHING. Yes, contra their own contract text! So youtube, throttled, Steam? Throttled. Downloading GTA 5 and patch? Fuck you, you are throttled. (Happened my friend) and afterwards he couldn't even use youtube anymore.

Needless to say, I'd rather take 6mbit DSL with no cap than that offer ;p Especially because TONS of auto updaters are lately p2p

If I were to ever blog about political things, I'd only do it via VPN and under a false identity. And in my country bloggers are not "hacked apart".. but it just seems prudent to not intermingle political opinion and my personal identity.

I live in Baden-Wurrtenberg and I'm on Kabel-bw, My Usenet stats for the last 3 months are 7.3tb's... thats just my usenet usage, I'm on 150/5 plan and i've never ever been throttled... I'm curious who you get your internet from?

Only Kabel Deutschland here for 100mbit, part of Vodafone. 60GB daily limit (currently), throttling to 100kb/s if you go above it. I live in Brandenburg, a short way east of Berlin.

I have 1&1 DSL 6mbit, no throttling and no cap Where I live, that's literally the only 2 options. DSL, max 16mbit down 1mbit up or Kabel, max 100mbit down 6mbit up from Kabel Deutschland (with cap and throttling)

And yeah, if you get to 60gb a day, the Kabel Deutschland guys do throttle everything

They also throttle you flat-out if you have 10gb daily p2p traffic, and yes, throttling everything. Not just p2p.

Imo the worst provider in Germany, Kabel Deutschland that is.

Ps.: My friend just chimed in and said that they throttle you when you reach 60gb ANY day of the month, and all days until the end of the month afterwards at 10gb per day. Meaning once you reach 60gb, you are throttled until end of day, but next day if you reach 10gb, you are throttled again. And again, and again...

Also, yes, they do count Steam, Youtube, Amazon Prime as "p2p traffic" so a single large game download could actually become literally physically impossible for you for a WHOLE MONTH.

My monthly traffic is around 300gb, so I'd hit this literally every month and every day of every month. So be very happy you have Unitymedia at your place and not Kabel Deutschland.

PPs.: Last month, due to GTA 5 i was at 300gb, normally it's 200gb. But then I also share with other people in my household, so it's not just me downloading 24/7 HD porn ;p

Damn that sucks, sorry to hear that. Makes me feel pretty lucky indeed. Although you may of just chained me for life to the BW area while i'm in Germany now lol

Definitely one of my favorite games, but i've decided to give it a break until beta is over and Act4 is released. I want everything to be fresh for my first Act4 play through. Also i was a little let down by the supporter packs this go around. Was planning on buying one but i think i'll just save my money and wait.

If you loved Diablo2 and hated Diablo3, this is probably the game for you...

how can you all watch the same video I just did, and only walk away with: "well, this is dumb, i'm not gonna buy 4x titans to run this? This is stupid, who cares?"
Because why show tech that's not even close to being realized on current high end gamer setups?
Him saying this scene has 10 times the polygon counts doesn't make me me say "Wow!"

It's like showing Avatar graphics and being like: "look how awesome this is!"
And we're all like: "uh huh, but it will run at 3 fps on my PC so who cares"

To show whats possible. Pretty ridiculous most of you cant appreciate that simple fact.

Looks good, but having not played it i just hope that it conveys the huge disconnect between the Generals and the actual situation that was so evident in WW1. Literally took years of Generals throwing troops at each others meat grinders before they learned a modicum of 20th century warfare. Of all modern day wars, this is the one i would least like to be in. I hope that it conveys this appropriately. That said, we need more games that cover the great war.

It WAS buggy, been playing it for about a year now, it was a heck of a buggy version back then, release was still RATHER buggy, but they patched it sometimes several times a day since then. By now it runs perfectly smooth, has no issues with performance, ... in general, I'm having a blast, haven't come across a bug in weeks, and I'm at over 200 hours.

It really feels like old school Dungeon Keeper, so definitely look into it!

Cool, thanks for that. I think i will give it a try.

To be honest if you want a Dungeon Keeper alike... get War For The Overworld, also on steam, that's Dungeon Keeper 3 as much as it can only be.

Dungeons 1 was a huge letdown, with the target of "entertaining" the knights in your dungeon, and placing things so they would be drawing their attention and giving them a good time instead of being a Dungeon Keeper... which is what people expected.

Haven't played Dungeons 2 yet though.

Thanks for the tip about War for the Overworld....was reading some user reviews, people say its pretty buggy, whats your experience in regard to this?

I saw a few YouTubers play the 2014 edition, I think Worth A Buy was one. It looked very polished compared to the usual simulator tat but the actual mechanic stuff doesn't look detailed.

It did strike me that it could be a decent educational game to show kids the basics of what different parts of a car do and where they are. I wouldn't say the same for Farming Simulator.

I wasnt even aware of the 2014 version, prolly why it took me by suprise...wont happen again. Just someone alert me when they have video game simulator

The game itself only plays in a full screen metro-interface, has achievements and the occasional prompt for micro-transactions. At least I can ignore all the prompts to login to Microsoft's crappy apps service.

Micro-transactions in solitaire? Maybe I'm not a greedy accountant/ceo type because I just can't think of a way to add micro-transactions to solitaire.

Queen of Hearts DLC?

....Serious?

Simulator games are incredibly popular amongst Germans and insufferable autists.

You dont have to tell me this...i'm in g'damn Germania....going down the Software isle at Media Markt (read: Overpriced shitty Computer/Electronics store) and its Simulator nirvana....i just never thought it would attract someone who actually likes working on their cars to say 'Hey, i wish i could do this virtually!'

Learn something new everyday, but ya not saying its bad, just super surprised me...(i should know better)

If you follow the trend, Half Life 3 is obviously going to be a Build-A-Sequel where you purchase textures and enemies ala carte.

I think its pretty amusing that anyone still thinks Halflife3 will ever be made. There is nothing but downside for Valve to do it. Especially for the sloth that is Gabe.

I think the real problem thats going to come out of this is that Bethesda (or whatever company) will basically 'outlaw' free mods and require all mods be pay2play and on steam otherwise they get slapped with a lawsuit. Which will absolutely kill the modding scene as it is.
