Steam/Origin can saturate those, I usually hit 30 MB/s from them.  Uplay used to but for some reason for the past 2-3 weeks uplay always downloads at half my actual rate, not sure whats going on there. At least the only thing I download on uplay are updates for siege, so its only a concern once every 1.5 months

I don't think ASF is gonna hit 30MB/s idling.

 

You don't actually play games... do you?!?!

I have the exact same problem, and the 3 games that I do play are all F2P games.... This is an illness.

I know it's a Steam thread, but since you guys are talking about PS Now:

 

Basically, Horizon: Zero Dawn is Witcher 3 Lite. Not that lite, but if it wasn't for Witcher 3, it'd probably be GotY type material.

Congrats to the TheHangout Broh this is who I look up to in my +1 efforts. What was 7000?

 

Looks like Sony is adding PS4 games to PlayStation Now soon.

http://blog.us.plays...-games-in-2017/

If it works great on my computer and internet connection, I would definitely subscribe to play some PS4 exclusives. Also, some people in the comments there are really Butt-hurt about this lol.

SeasonalCAG Ex Console Broh:

This is good to hear because I recently got rid of my last console which was the PS4 was thinking about holding on to it for Persona 5 but thought it would just collect dust like it had been. Hopefully it gets the newer releases and not just the old garbage no ones to play or has played already.

Pizza: mushrooms, roasted red peppers, grilled chicken.

 

If someone's buying pizza for while playing Mass Effect: Andromeda, they should buy a large cheese pizza and order all kinds of micro-transactions  worth of toppings.

 

Do as many micro-transactions of toppings that you can do  - bacon, sausage, pepperoni, anchovies, olives, onions, broccoli, BBQ rib, ham, hamburger, shaved steak, pineapples, etc etc.

 

That way, one can be ready for micro-transactions galore in ME:A's Multiplayer:

It was a Christmas miracle. Walmart had the HD. They had one left on the shelf and some guy was holding as I got there, but he looked at me and put it back on the shelf. I picked it up, paid and asked if by chance they had one more. She went to the back and behold, she came back with one more! No clue how many more were back there (Brickseek claimed 7 in stock).

The whole experience was quite surreal for Walmart and I'm still wondering if I haven't been passed out dreaming this whole time.

Also, Comcast finally came today. The fox is back under the cap, but the internet is faster, meh.

Congrats! Brickseek said the two Walmarts near me each had two of those drives in stock, but I didn't see them in either store. Checked where hard drives are normally shelved, checked electronics clearance, and checked the main clearance aisle. I didn't bother asking anyone since in my experience Brickseek doesn't reflect what my Walmarts have very well.

 

The good news is I picked up a gallon of milk for $1.08.

If it only cost $1.08, that's not a gallon of milk.

Syntax Error

Posted 14 March 2017 - 01:13 AM

I was perfectly happy with getting 125 on speedtests until I came across a better router for cheap.  I can't wait to see 200+ on speedtests and then be irritated that I can't download anything from anywhere that will saturate my line.

I used to use Speedtest and just let it default to the location it wanted to test me against (closest) and would get 90.  Then I tried other tests and would get between 160-210+ but those weren't Speedtest so could I trust them?  Finally, I decided to try it against a random location (picked somewhere in San Jose) and it came back ~200.  So, really, the nearest location to me is just shit and has been under reporting my speed :wall:

Yeah, it would default me to 500 miles away and a slower speed, pretty consistently, when a fast local server was in the next town over.

There's a guy in the trade thread selling them who says you can.

Link?  Or you joking with me? :/

 

I'm curious if activating it through GeForce via VPN means you have to make a new Uplay or something.

His are from another region but I would assume it's the same song and dance.  His are only a few bucks more.

Really?! I don't have a PS4 or much interest in PS Now, but, uh, Horizon looks like hot garbage if the commercials are any basis for judgment.

Imagine the latest Tomb Raider games, but if they were fun.
