I play Battlefield 2; it's a kick-ass FPS. EA, the publisher, has a long and storied history of releasing many, many (needed) patches for the series. They just released the latest for BF2.



When I started to download the file from their site (this is EA, largest game company in North America), I was getting about 26KB/s down. Yeah.
