So for all of you who are still using your 300-baud modems, clinging onto dreams of becoming an uber hacker like Matthew Broderick in WarGames, you might want to consider getting a broadband connection if you'd like to play Diablo 3 when it comes out.
"For online games it's not usually the bandwidth (your 1800kb/s) but the latency that's a factor. Latency is the time it takes for data to leave your machine, hit the game server, and return back. In general games aren't sending enough data where it would actually bottleneck because of your bandwidth, there are exceptions but I think you should be ok."
Greetings, Professor Falken.
Shall we play a game?
Love to. How about Global Thermonuclear War.
Wouldn't you prefer a nice game of Diablo 3?
Later. Right now lets play Global Thermonuclear War.
