    Nintendo is lame. I'm not interested in any of their titles anymore. I want grittier games, and Nintendo doesn't do that. The NX is not on my radar

    Am i the only one who finds it hard to put credence to what the guys are saying about Rainbow Six? I think it's because they're appearing to be objective about the game but they were sponsored to play it multiple times, so they can't really be objective or unbiased about it. It's the same as when they talked about fallout 4, I found it hard to take their opinions as balanced or representative of what the game actually was.
    Btw this isn't necessarily a complaint, I still love the show and it's not like they were never open about the fact that they've been sponsored to play said games, that was always upfront and obvious. I was just wondering if anybody else had the same problem.
    :edit: Also, digital only isnt going to happen for a fucking eon. I don't think you guys are recognising just how fucking huge the used games market i. Plus while you guys are using digital only most of the time i don't think that's representative, you live in a large city with good internet, there are alot of people who can not rely on their internet enough to use digital only. I think it's the next logical progression but i'd be saying 15 years minimum before we really see it.

      They love Rainbow Six, which is why they were sponsored.

    In the settings menu on Rainbow Six Seige you can choose which game types you would like to search for. It's in the matchmaking preferences.

    I'd love to move to downloading all games if they wasn't always £20 more then buying a disk.

    In Australia the price of games is crazy. On the PSN store most AAA games are $99.99 ($73 USD or so) or more. I love being digital but this price makes it difficult as stores like JB HI FI or Big W have physical copies for $60-$70 ($43-$51USD). It's just cheaper to be physical in Australia.

    I'm only big on steel cases for games. I don't care either way otherwise, other than how annoying physical only could be if you had slow internet.

    Meg is a bit too defensive about physical copies. Like I get they are "nice" too look at but when you have a digital copy it makes it so much easier to not have to worry about keeping up with the game cases when you are a student living in a dorm who has to move all their games at the end of each semester.

    i love downloading games. it does make it easier. but we have not reached the point of having enough space on our consoles to fit all the games we want without spending a lot of money. disks uses way less space

    meg....what the 3ds uses is called a cartridge. its like the ones you would see for the old nintendo system ie. nes snes n64. but more condensed. a "memory card" is basically an sd card. only keeping information really. like what the gamecube and ps2 had.

    why can't people enjoy more then one system? all this talk about "switching over" to a console is fucking dumb. can't people not be married to a brand.

    Omg, Zoombinis was a game that we got to play in IT classes in middle school. Like there'd be a copy on every PC and if we finished our work early we'd get to play Zoombinis until the bell rang :')

    If you like Crossy Road, try Smashy Road... similar concept with the free gift/micro transactions, but it's basically 8-bit GTA where you have to drive away from the cops.

    The sand is scattered on the table and the pucks glide on top of it. It is also not actual sand.

    I think the young people got Xbox ones 2 years ago, so they got PS4 this year, adults got PS4s 2 years ago, and got Xbox ones this year.

    Why is the PS4 doing so much better than the XBone? Because of the third-console curse. Just ask Nintendo how the Virtual Boy worked for them.
