Comments on: Downloadable demos are awesome. http://www.iamkevin.com/journal/?p=328 i am kevin, not you. unless you are also kevin. Thu, 02 Feb 2023 14:51:29 +0000 http://wordpress.org/?v=2.5.1 By: kevin. http://www.iamkevin.com/journal/?p=328#comment-374 kevin. Thu, 08 Dec 2005 00:31:23 +0000 http://www.iamkevin.com/journal/?p=328#comment-374 arcade titles are usually 15-30 mb. Looks like the biggest one out right now is Bankshot Billiards, at 36.52 MB. They don't take very long to download. I timed billiards it took almost exactly a minute. As for the demos, well they take about 20-30 times longer, since they're 500MB or larger. It depends on your connection speed really. The NFS:MW demo took a long time, at least 30 minutes to download, but it's 960MB, which is huge, 30 times larger than billiards. (It's a really pretty game. Some fun gametypes, i hadn't played a NFS title in a long time. The controls aren't great though, and I doubt I'll buy it, definitely not for $60. Maybe if it comes down to $20 or $30.) Unfortunately you can't download in the background, so you have to leave it downloading while you go read a book or cook some dinner or something, or switch over to TV. However, if you're in the middle of downloading and you have to go, you can cancel it and resume the download later where it left off. arcade titles are usually 15-30 mb.
