Weird year for games, I don't own anything on that list except Titanfall.

Destiny, Halo, and GTA5 will be all I play the rest of this year and my GOTY is definitely Destiny. Will have to get Dragon Age, Forza Horizon, and Sunset when I have some time though.

Why don't we all just play together on one of the existing servers like Ultima?

I'd be so down for this, I played on one of the Blue Burst servers a couple years ago. That wasn't much of a hassle to get into.

Playing online in Dreamcast PSO was the most fun ive ever had in gaming.

@loophole: ibVPN, they had a 6 hour trial. I'm sure people with more know -how could solve this with a free VPN, but I ended up paying $5 for a month.

I went through so many different VPN clients before I found one that just worked like a charm.

Then if on a Mac, just go to settings-> sharing-> internet sharing and select from: ibVPN-L2TP and to: wifi. Set up your xbox to use this new wifi connection and you are good to go. If on a pc, you will need another program to put out a wifi signal such as connectify.

Well I finally played some Destiny by downloading a VPN designed to get people around the torrent blockade. Then I used the built-in Internet sharing on my Mac to send a wifi signal to the Xbox (I had no idea this was even a thing).

At least one great thing came of this, as I can now send a super fast wifi signal from my computer to all my other devices. The provided wifi from the university is slower than dial up in 1996. I was eating through tons of phone data to avoid ever turning it on.

If anyone else is having issues and wants more specifics on this workaround let me know.

@cbyrne: Nope it's bungie..

This is the first and only game to ever have a single connection issue. There is a list being compiled of universities in nearly every state. Apparently Bungie is using P2P, which large networks block due to torrent use.

SO just like with the Beta, I have never been able to login to the game. Apparently, every single person living on a college campus has this error and cannot play at all.

Seems like quite the oversight by Bungie considering the Beta acted the exact same way. Should I attempt to get a refund now or wait for comment from them?

Anyone tried this yet? About to grab my free last gen version now.

Diablo 3, League of Legends, Rogue Legacy, FTL, Binding of Isaac, Hearthstone, Forza..

Basically any multiplayer game, sports game, racing game or rogue-like after the first couple runs.

@djjoejoe: This. I was so annoyed when they reversed their policies because of no longer being able to install discs. I could have had my library be entirely digital while still shopping for the best price. Eliminating retail competition on the digital versions of games was actually a huge negative for the consumer.
