    router under computer help

    Yes, i realize they do it for a reason, and im not too worried about getting caught since the punishment here is just that they take away your router/switch until the end of the semester, something i am more than willing to deal with. I'll try registering my switch and see how that works

    router under computer help

    sorry, i guess i should have clarified that the school provides its own wireless, and your technically not supposed to have your own hooked up... hooking a router or switch up to the provided jacks does not work, not to mention even if i hook my xbox directly up to the wall, it is much slower...

    for true fear you can't beat what amnesia has to offer.... All other games just have something jump at you.. which is a cheap way to make something scary. When playing amnesia you are truly afraid for damn near the entire time.. and the encounters are spread out perfectly so that just when...

    Black Ops the Best-Selling Game in U.S. History

    Medal of Honor Beta

    it feels exactly like battlefield with smaller maps... Which sounds like a major bummer.. but its actually really fun. the scorestreak (not killstreak) rewards are very satisfying, the gun upgrade system is pretty decent, not everything is destructible which is a huge plus.... but the beta is...
