comment Where are good places to farm souls in Dark Souls?
If you have pyromancy or miracles Great Fireball and Wrath of the Gods both work very well for easy kills.

comment Steam repeatedly pauses downloads
That is a very interesting suggestion. I just tried it (-tcp) and it seemed to make the download go a little longer between pauses (although it's difficult to quantify) but does not appear to solve the problem.

comment How can I fix stuttering and lag issues in Deus Ex HR Director's Cut?
Looks like we have more than one problem in common.

Don't worry, glad for any help. Especially since it's a common problem, always nice to have something on stack exchange people will use and can find.

It's 45 mbps ("up to", usually checks in at around 34). ATT Uverse. Had this problem with my last provider as well. Also anywhere else I use my laptop. I'll try setting the speed. EDIT: does not appear to help

Thanks for the suggestions, I've been looking for a solution for quite some time. The problem is that most other problems have to do with internet connection, which isn't the problem (since I can workaround through babysitting the download).

I just checked the download restrictions - it is set to "No limit". I have tried many different regions as well. :/

I have no problems with downloads via any other system. Sometimes I torrent the game files and copy them into the Steam folder or download the DRM-free version from Humble Bundle. Not always a viable solution, unfortunately.

Additionally, I CAN still download games - it's just very, very slow.

I only have one drive, and nothing like a netlimiter. I didn't always have this problem, it started about six months ago.

Edited to add, although I am hoping it's a generalize-able problem.
