Ugh(l(y/ee)). Which ISP is this? Do you still have that problem with a network cable?

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.

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!

Yeah, I always thought 'ammo as currency' was a questionable design choice, and they weren't even that much better than the crappy ammo they made themselves.

It wasn't a design choice, it was to make it follow the book.

Having just finished the game a little while ago, it's not bad. Wasn't great. They hinted at a lot of back story that, had it been explored more in depth, would have been great. But instead of doing this (and making the world feel more alive), they flip-flopped between characters too much and didn't give them room to grow.

The battle system is pretty to look at, but was pretty much "mash the button" and just flip to different classes as needed (and hope it didn't decide to use the extra-long switch mode which might get you killed since you need to heal...).

The level system was horrible designed. Was all about trying to make it look pretty, but wasn't great. The whole fact that levelling up was capped the entire game was the worst design choice....

*SPOILERS*

They had great story ideas with the purging of people but quickly dropped that idea to just focus on you being chased for becoming whatever-it-was called. When the people started to rebel, that was making it look up, but then they just... gave up? Stopped fighting? Was just gone (and now that I'm playing the sequel, it does make references that people lasted in that longer then the little battle you see).

Then could have helped build up with Sazh's son, what happened and how, and then the final ending... but he felt just thrown in too randomly that I didn't care really.

Snow wanting to be a "hero" just made him feel like a douchebag, and never did anything impressive. Just a loudmouth that talked himself up.

Serah, like Sazh's kid, felt wedged in.

Would have loved to see more about how the war 300 years in the past had effected the world instead making a odd garbage dumping area. Maybe have had it as a no-man's land/blackmarket city? Robot's that longed to go home? Anything more then being a mere foot note.

The major wasted effort was when you finally reached the town on the main world and it was empty. They have an amazing concept there, a town (that should have been larger) were everyone had been forced into a war they maybe didn't want, and lost causing them to become those monsters in it. Give the monsters some desire to want to be human agin, lingering memories, actions that would have given the players knowledge that these were the people whom lived there.

So much wasted potential...

PC sales are starting to pick up again.

Now that everyone owns a tablet and realizes they're pretty limited, they're buying PCs again.

Still looking for the limits in my Nexus 10.

I can program with it, digital art (my Wacom tablet was plug and play), read, write, etc... What are these limits I was supposed to find?

As I understand it, Beats are overpriced crap. Bose are decent, and their noise cancelling is unparalleled, but there are even better sounding headphones out there like Sennheiser and B & W. Question: why do athletes who can afford anything use Beats? Is it just a fashion statement?

Because they either get them for free/paid to wear them, saw someone they admire wear them (athletes are human), or saw high price tag and assumed they were high quality.

Remember, these are athletes, not audio people. They don't have the time or desire to research a product and so go for the brand names. Its like when you see a doctor with a Mac laptop. Is it because they are smart so they use a Mac? No, it's because the doctor is smart in medicine, but more often then not know little to nothing about computers so saw the high price tag and the iMedia claims that the Mac is good. Ask a doctor with a Mac why they have it and they will most likely tell you "Because it's a Mac" and have a blank stare, because they never thought about it. The brand was the reason, that was all. They would have been just as fine with another computer but they don't have time or the interest to research a better product so allow hype to sell them what they aren't familiar with.

I suppose she could always get an MBA and go work as a bank executive. Then she could legally steal from vulnerable populations.

Stealing the iPad from the cancer patient was bad enough, but stealing a MacBook Air from the cancer patient to become a bank executive... nevermind, would be par the course for a high level bankers job.

What is going to happened to data plans and caps with moves like what T-Mobile is doing, and with the latest updates to google hangouts (free wifi calling/messaging/video chat) going global soon? Will the mobile providers finally have to let go of that part of their nickle and dime scam?

Good luck with that in many countries.

I'm in Canada where cell companies are advertising 500-750 MB a month as a huge amazing thing.

Here is Fido's newest commercial showing off their new 750MB plan... it's so pathetic. And here are their month plans. It's a sick joke.

Check out 7 11 Speakout plans.

$10 for a 100 MB, thats even worse Cutter.

Even their plans are bad. I pay these prices for Rogers already, no difference.

Sad thing is, I've been to Korea so I've seen what can be done. These plans are an so embarrassing....

I've never had a real name with my Google accounts (+, YouTube, etc...) and they've never said anything to me. And it's plainly obvious that it's a fake name (it's been called out many times by people). And any decent checker should have caught it for being fake.

Gee, guy, take a look at anatomical charts for men and women and study up on how the human race procreates (how you got here, in other words), and you may just discover the reason homosexuality has been a deviant sexual practice in every civilization on earth since the dawn of recorded history. Long before there were churches, etc.

And yet another moron goes on ignore.

Censor much?

I wouldn't call blocking trolls as censoring.
