VPNs get unstable ahead of Chinese WWII parade

As a military parade will take place in Beijing this week to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of the second world war, a number of services used to get around Chinese internet restrictions have been taken down or disrupted. VPN users in China will have limited access in the first week of September.


It's never easy to guess why Chinese authorities choose a particular moment to crack down on internet accessibility. But for such a historical event, Chinese authorities are sure to inspect on the Internet. Some VPNs as well as other anti-censorship apps are down during this period. VPNs send all your datas through a encrypted tunnel, change your IP address to allow you bypass the Great Firewall (GFW). An individual in Beijing might connect to a VPN in England, so they can access content that is blocked within their own country without traveling abroad, or a Hulu user one side of the globe may surf as though they're somewhere else in order to watch programing that's only available in certain parts of the planet. 
Some most common VPN protocols have become unstable ahead of the upcoming military parade. Protocols including Cisco IPSec, L2TP/IPSec and PPTP will be affected. One of the VPN provider Astrill warned users on last Wednesday that they may suffer service outages between now and the parade on September 3. "Due to upcoming Beijing's military parade next week, China is cracking down on IPSec VPNs using GFW auto-learning technique," Astrill said in a message to users. 
Users may find VPNs got blank or servers show timeout for several minutes, or even get stuck when started and connect to any servers. I use FlyVPN and find it takes more time to open its app today, and its HongKong servers are not so stable as usual. It's very upsetting to find disconnected from the outside world, no Gmail and no Facebook, no information from the world. Fortunately, VPN service on routers, PCs and Android devices will hardly be effected as they use more resilient protocols.

Dragon's Dogma Online arrives in Japan at the end of August

Multiplatform Dragon's Dogma Online will become available to a limited number of gamers in Japan on Aug. 27, with full service going live Aug. 31. I highly suggest playing the Japanese version even if you can't understand the language, it's totally playable and lag free on PC. What's more, there is no release date announced for international territories at this time.



A limited edition released on August 27 will include an array of 'Nemesis Series' equipment, including the 'Sword of Nemesis' and 'Shield of Nemesis'(for the Fighter class), 'Wall of Nemesis' and 'Rod of Nemesis' (Shield Sage), and 'Staff of Nemesis' (Priest) and 'Bow of Nemesis' (Hunter). The limited edition founders pack is 63$ and comes with a lot of goodies along with early access, if it comes with the freemium service, it might be worth it. The item is also sold at Amazon Japan! Find out more details bout the limited edition package here.
Players who live outside of Japan but want to play this ganme can use some proxy or VPNs. Even if you have no idea what a VPN is. You should start build your own VPN to pimp out your Gaming, Streaming, Remote Access, and security. If you want to get around a location restriction and watch live TV, and play this game in the Japan, for example, you want to make sure your VPN service provider has servers in Japan.
Many people make more than they should, but it's important to make sure a VPN has servers in multiple locations - or at least the location frequently needed. I would like to recommend FlyVPN. My VPN service costs me $6.70 per month when I subscribed for the yearly plan. It allows me view blocked websites from anywhere. FlyVPN runs seamlessly in the background - all you have to do is click to connect. There are 14 Japan servers in my package. They have optimized the network to provide the highest speeds possible with unlimited traffic.

Play Volume hours earlier

Volume is set to be released on 18 August 2015 for Microsoft Windows, OS X, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita. It's developed by Mike Bithell, who previously developed the award-winning Thomas Was Alone. New Zealanders can get the game in less than three hours, but you may need to wait another ten hours or even one day. If you would like to play Volume as earlier as possible, then change your IP to a New Zealand one.




Volume is a stealth game about being heard and committing crimes. Mike Bithell stops by to give the GameSpot staff a quick look at this unique-stealth, puzzler. Volume‍ '​s story is based on a modern take of the Robin Hood legend. Robert Locksley is a petty thief that finds a device called "Volume", which allows the user to simulate heists that is part of a secret military coup attempt. Enter the Volume to halt the corruption of Gisborne Industries and train the masses to rob from the rich in this reimagining of the Robin Hood legend. A hundred challenging and exciting levels lie ahead, but that is only the beginning of the Volume. 
Get a free VPN (FlyVPN with free NewZealand VPN server is our choice).
Here's how to do it:
1. Download a VPN Client from .
2. Once that's installed, run it. Login with your account. If you don't have a premium account, you can use their free VPN accounts. New Zealand server is in free account 'vpnu'.
3. You'll see a window with a server list. Find the New Zealand server and connect it.
4. When Volume is available to play, change your Steam download region in the Steam Settings under Downloads. Do so, and wait for the main menu to load up. 
5. Close VPN after the game completed downloaded.
If the speed is very slow when you download Volume, you can close VPN after the game downloaded somewhere about 10MB to 20 MB. But remember to re-connect to the New Zealand server at the end of download. Some games would detect your IP at the end of downloading.
