Kind of expected that. Pretty cool freebie at any rate.

It's typical marketing-speak bullshit. When they say six minutes, they mean that's what it took them to download it internally from their servers. If the're saying you can download several gigs on a 5mbps DSL connection from across the country in six minutes they're out and out lying.

I finally got it to work (Firefox evidently isn't supported, or at least 2.xx) and was getting 0.256 mb/s, or 256 kbs. At that rate, it would take over 45 minutes to download. My cable internet here isn't the fastest, but I usually get right around 1 mb/s with Steam or Direct2Drive. Maybe there is something wrong with my IE settings or something.

Yeah, I got the lovely "This program can only be installed on versions of Windows designed for the following processor architectures: x86" as well. That's a pretty bad start, though I like the idea. I was interested to see how it compares to other services, even though I've already got all the Tomb Raider games on Steam.

Doesn't work on 64bit Windows... gives an error stating it only works on 32bit systems.

Not a good start, IMO.
