So... congratulations to me! My OS handled a whole game of this ONLINE without crashing!
You have no idea how gratifying this was. You see, as someone who messed around with console gaming, online play was a bust. I made the mistake of trying PS2 network... big mistake. Those games were offline in what I felt was a ridiculously short timeframe. When I first tried to run this game online and crashed halfway through dead center... I was starting to think there was a cruel deity sitting up on a rock somewhere, laughing... mocking me. Saying "YOU SHALT NEVAH PLAY A MODERN DAY(ish) GAME ONLINE... THIS I DECREE!" I was going insane. But. As of last night... I have played a modern day game online... I'm finally... one of you people. You young, "let's play modern games on-liney" type of people. In fact... i think, despite several noobish mistakes, I even kind of "helped" a little. But most importantly... I was there. Could steam, nary my pc be a whole new world of wonder and online gaming?!?!?! HAHA-HAH! I THINK IT CAN!(if you have not guessed yet, yes, I am quite insane.)
