Downloading from where?

LIVE seems to be down! I've rebooted, recycled my router and everything. I can get on with my Xbox360, but Fallout3 won't log into LIVE and neither will Batman.

This is so frustrating! Damn Microsoft!

Direct2Drive? Steam?
I already have the 360 version (it's actually the first game I've unlocked all the achievements for), but I might also buy the PC version. I'm just waiting to see if there are going to be any cool mods for it.

I also bought the 360 version, but it doesn't even come close to the visual fidelity of the PC. I stopped playing it mid-stream and traded it in for the PC version. Only - I found that Best Buy was selling them early so I bought it. I'll probably trade my pre-order of the game for Resident Evil 5 PC since it came out today as well.

uh gamers gate.

google gamers gate

damn it. my download going to go even slower now :(

cant use an accelerator, only some 57k .exe self contained download file they have which is ****ty, at least steam always goes at full speed for me. then again ive not downloaded a game on release. then again servers are servers, even though i might be downloading a steam game which isnt a new release, with new releases coming out daily surely there servers are bogged yet im always at full speed.

sigh at this rate it might be finished in 3 days.

Gamersgate? ahh right.. yeh they have their own download manager dont they.. :( stick with it.. will be worth it

15th Sep 2009, 11:09
no, recently they did away with their download manager or so i learned...current speed i have 36 hours left.

going between 50-70k

I remember the days when 400mb was big. then came the standard 2 gigs 3 years ago. then 4 gigs and now we are at a wopping 8 gigs...

bleh......i thought i could go to sleep and wake up and in 7 hours it be done. now id need to knock myself out for 2 days and hope its done.

well **** me, computer rebooted, download started over.

hear hear to gamers gate and the awesome lack of resume they have.

what a waste of money. truly.

15th Sep 2009, 14:08
8 hours and 1 gig wasted.

Steam is sending me the game right spritely. It's taking about 2 hours on a 20megabit line.

15th Sep 2009, 20:56
Same. I should have the game in about 2 hours. Not too bad. Big download.

15th Sep 2009, 21:20
20mbit nice dont have such high speeds here, thats a residential thing?

how much you pay for that?

15th Sep 2009, 23:19
im now at a wopping 5k/s. the dark ages of the internet beckons to me, not since 1995 have i downloaded something at this speed. at this rate i have about10 days to go.

i wish i could get a refund and buy it from steam on the 18th.
