I suddenly remember the days when I had to make do with a 33.6k connection.
How I managed to play TFC in a Pentium 1 in a server on the other side of the globe while having less than 100 ping is is beyond me.
I'm not into online gaming. Dang features that (I think) they're making compulsory in NFSC... I don't need the world to know my stats (or spy on my cars
) when it's obvious that there's someone waaay better out there... and then there's still the ads, the ads, and the ads. And now I start seeing the phrase 'video ads'? Bangwal. Bandwidth... hard-disk...
Still contemplating if I should pay legal money for NFSC (that Koenigsegg is tempting), or boycott it...
Me lacking any reasonably new/properly-coded/arcadey racing game for home play, but then again NFSC is just a repolished MW. Which is bound to grow old really fast. IMO
the advantage of owning a crappy comp that lags even on the lowest graphics settings: it's much easier to see that it's just a polish and not a 'very new' game.
(I know this is a BF2142 thread, but still...)
