Yeah I wanted to play some NFS hot pursuit last night and also got that 'timed out' message. At first I also thought it was my modem but couldn't be bothered to check.

I saw it when I got on to play RE4 for the 1 billionth time and saw that it timed out also and I was like OH FUCK! Capcom better not have put in that bullshit DRM that makes you have to be logged in to play!

I started the game and then I got the message! But luckily it was only asking for the leaderboards.

Some guy beat RE4 in 1 hour and 58 mins! GAH I thought I was fast beating it in 2 hours and 40 mins on the Wii version.

I'll hate any game thats shitty. But if they improve it then I play it. Fifa went from pure shit to somehow the best soccer game out. I still feel weird playing it.

You feel weird because you got downs for liking Fifa. (As you and darren once said to me)

But I'm not feeling so down anymore since I stopped playing Fifa games. lololol

Imagine the congestion once it hits Europe.

If all else fails, there's always European Soccer Challenge for Commodore 64/128.

It came back last night. Yay. Got pwn'd on Blops yet again.

Dunno about you guys, but every time I hear the phrase "Network down for maintenance" I picture little lemmings dudes with pick-axes and hammers messing around in the cable lines.

Heh heh.. not quite how I remember the Commodore 16/64. There were no doubt some fantastic games but games were so cheap to make back then everyone seemed to do it and there were so much bad stuff aswell.
