Fallout 3 Cripples Steam
Fallout 3 Cripples Steam [ Game -> Article ]

More info on Game: Fallout 3

Since nuclear power is far more powerful than steam, it comes as no surprise that the online delivery service Steam was dominated by the release of Fallout 3. Apache at Voodoo Extreme reports:

Fallout 3 downloads begun on Steam a few hours hours ago. There was no pre-loading, so as you can imagine, download speeds are less than super awesome at this point (thanks, Brian). Typical speeds are lingering at around 30-50 kps, even on super fast, double wide connections. Valve was unavailable for comment at the time of this posting on whether it would 'flip the big bandswitch' or let things run its own course. In the meantime, feel free to watch about 7 gigs worth of videos (cough).

We reported on the videos yesterday, and they're all pretty good - and quite freaking long.
