I have been thinking of giving Rift a go, but there's one thing holding me back - due to circumstances beyond my control, I'm currently limited to prepaid internet.
For those not familiar with prepaid internet schemes in Australia - they're a complete rip-off. For the price you'd pay for a hundred gig per month on broadband, I get about 6gb. It sucks. But currently it can't be helped.
So naturally, I can't DDL games. I don't mind buying hard copies of non-console games, because they're cheap these days. What I am wary about though is how much initial patching I'd have to do with a storebought copy. Anyone able to give me a rough guess at how big it would be? What about patch sizes if I was to also get the expansion?
