When games consoles were bookshelves: celebrating 35 years of Fighting Fantasy books

My first games console was a bookshelf. Long before I felt the call of Skyrim’s icy tundras, tackled the complex dungeons of Zelda or battled the undead foes of Dark Souls, I was exploring vast fantasy worlds through the pages of books.

CDNlion

It may be a small CDN, but the CDNlion website makes some big claims, suggesting the company offers "unlimited performance and coverage" for the "industry's lowest price".

CDNlion certainly has one of the largest networks we've seen: 124 locations in total including 39 in North America, 53 in Europe, 23 in Asia, six in Oceania, two in South America and one in Africa. That doesn't guarantee great performance – the company is powered by OnApp CDN, which isn't noted for top speeds – but it doesn't hurt, either.
