Remember remember, something about November I think. We’re in the penultimate month of the year. The Empire Strikes Back of Calendar months! The beginning of the end! Verb the adjective! I have no idea where I’m going with this rant, but mark my words, it very much is November! Which might be a good enough excuse for me to stop wearing the Freddy Krueger costume and scaring kids before the cops get here.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

      hello

      i have a question that

      Why Disqus Home Forum Of <> is Not Updating news on Disqus Forum page

      link below.

      https://disqus.com/home/forums/lazygamer/

      last news update on this was 2 days ago

      • Sageville

        Weird, never really use that part of disqus, but you are right.

        • Hammersteyn

          Must be something their side?

          • Sageville

            Probably one of the jurnalizts trying to hack their way out of cabbagedom or into batmanness….

        • HairyEwok

          I didn’t want to click on it….. Seemed dodgy.

      • Hammersteyn

        It’s working fine now

        • Sageville

          Nope, unless that’s a cache thang.

          • Hammersteyn

            Yeah, it’s broken

        • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

          Y U REPLY TO BOT

          • Hammersteyn

            Only had one spam message :/

  • Hammersteyn

    Bwahahaha dat header. Do the walk Gavin!

  • Mistake Not…

    Quick question for anyone who has ADSL/wired internet. I know you pay for data, and you pay for the line. Do you pay for the amount of time you actually spend online (like dial-up)?

    • Brady miaau

      No, not at all.

    • Hammersteyn

      Dail up uses your telephone line, so it’s like you’re calling the internet and paying per minute. ADSL is different in that you only pay for the data you use. So you can be connected 24/7 it doesn’t matter.

      • Mistake Not…

        Ah, I see. So Web Africa has 4 Mbps for R300 p/m, with another R300 p/m for the line. So it will be a straight R600 p/m, right?
        Any suggestions for a good ISP?

        • Alien Emperor Trevor

          and your regular phone line rental.

          • Mistake Not…

            Oh, okay. But that’s just a flat fee every month right? Not reliant on how much time you actually spend online?

          • Hammersteyn

            Uncapped is flat. You pay once and you have zero worries about extra cost. But if you’re a little to over zealous with downloads they may cap you speed. But that’s almost impossible if you use it for gaming and Netflix for instance

          • HairyEwok

            In other words….. Don’t be a pirate arrrrrr!

          • HvR

            or buy digital copies of next gen games …… beep beep bzzzz

          • Hammersteyn

            One a month is fine………it’s also all I can afford being console 🙁

          • HvR

            or accidentally include your games and media library as part of your daily Crashplan backup.

          • Hammersteyn
        • Brady miaau

          I use Crystal , as they promise to cater to streaming online and gaming, two things we do. I think them fantastic, but I use the premium service so perhaps mileage will vary.

          There are several good ones out there, really. Search for ISP of the year 2015 Mybroadband to also get a good idea

          And, as Alien Emp said, your monthly telephone line rental must also be paid for

        • Hammersteyn

          I’m using WebAfrica atm. Destiny hasn’t run nearly as smooth as when I was with those P2P throttling Meh-WEB aholes

          • Mistake Not…

            So which would you say is best?

          • Hammersteyn

            Crystal Web(heard a lot of good things) or WebAfrica(In my experience)

          • Mistake Not…

            Awesome. Thanks for all the help, guys.

          • Hammersteyn

            😀

          • Brady miaau

            I would go with Crystal Web.

          • Mistake Not…

            Haven’t actually heard of them. Will have a gander. Thanks.

          • Darren Peach

            Hey Dude. I am living in a area that has no decent coverage, No plans for Fibre and the best line I can get is 2 meg. I am using 4g which is only good for one game, Call of Duty. ( I cry myself to sleep at night ). Obviously you have used a fixed line for some time. What kind of gaming experience can I expect if I get a fixed line. Comparable to what you are using ? Ie : COD, Battlefield, Gran Turismo, Destiny etc etc. How is your latency ?

          • Hammersteyn

            Using a 4MB at the moment. Latency is still there because we have no local servers. It’s around 200ms.

          • Darren Peach

            Ouch. I guess you don’t play cod ? One of the reasons I play it is because they have local servers. So, Even if I get a fixed line the old problems still exist ?

          • Hammersteyn

            Gonna get Blops 3, though I was hoping to avoid it

          • Jonah Cash

            I can tell you horror stories about Crystal Web. Worst customer service I have had ever, even Telkom had better service!

          • Hammersteyn

            Eish

          • Sageville

            Probably Crystal Web or WebAfrica.

            Do NOT go though Mweb, OpenWeb or Afrihost

          • Jonah Cash

            Don’t go through Crystal Web, they are useless when the shit hits the fan!

          • Jonah Cash

            I use Afrihost and I won’t touch Crystal Web with another mans pole!! They are fucking idiots who forgot that in 2015 you are supposed to deliver or service as much if not more than your product!

            I love Afrihost, have really not had a lot of problems with them. Capped account which I can change on their hub anytime… And by far the best service I have had from any ISP. (Their MTN backbone was not ideal but since they moved most over to Afrigreen which they have more control of things have improved for everyone. I have been on Afrigreen for 3-4 months and it is awesome!)

        • HvR

          With the amount of crap I’m dealing with the last month NOT Cybersmart, especially their fiber service.

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    IT WAS GAVIN, D! IT WAS GAVIN ALL ALONG!

  • Brady miaau

    OK, cool. So where do I buy Mechwarrior 3 and 4 from? Lost my disks, will they work on Windows 10?

    • Hammersteyn

      Eish. I would like to buy it as well. Not available on GOG or Steam atm. It would probably pop up on GOG if enough people wants it.

      • Brady miaau

        Seems some people do. But it is so old, the graphics may make it not playable for us today. Will double check at home tonight.

        • HairyEwok

          Why not get MechWarrior online?

          • Brady miaau

            I looked, but I do not like online play like that.

        • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

          I recently tried playing it again, it shows its age (MW4)

    • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

      MW4 is available as a free download
