    9 hours? Ack! :D

    You better use a good download manager program like Download Accelerator Program (DAP), otherwise it will be painful indeed. ;)

    oooo that game looks cool! Link me baby!

    I got a review of it here from PC Gamer. This is what one of the characters says to you.
    gotta love that British sense of humor.

    You know, when this game was in development the sea cuteypies were topless and had these lovely b-cups. But before release they put some sort of sports bra on her. I think that is kinda silly. I mean, Boobies!! You know? Now, its bad enough you gotta rename a file in the bin folder from arpfix to arphix.old to get rid of the sportsbra. But then you have to find some patch online to give the girl her nipples back!!!! I mean I can understand putting a top on the girl so you can sell it to the kids, but taking away her nipples is just too much! :eek:

    Boom, when the subject piques your interest, you sure know how to find some answers! :D I saw the game being played on Extended Play (formerly Gamespot TV) and my jaw dropped to the floor. Just beautiful.

    I had Gozilla before and it was pretty bad with cnet and stuff where they'd take you to a webpage with adds before the DL. Plus Gozilla tracks all the websites you goto and sends info to some company or something like that ...some ad software that you need to use if you have Gozilla:( It was pretty cool though interface was much nicer.

    And when you reach 95% completion, some redneck with a backhoe someplace is going dig up a fibre backbone.

    Gozilla can do more harm in good when d'l'ing from fileplanet I notice. Keeps thinking the webpages are the files itself and then when it "sends back to browser" it always changes the first window I had open (i.e. PuF :)).

    Hear that finsishing roar one more time though...

    I use DAP now and I'm on cable. Is this demo worth it? I'm gonna download regardless, so don't answer that.
