Off Topic / What are your thoughts on digital collections?

Do you value digital collections of games, movies and music?

I've seen some extreme anti-digital views calling it here today gone tomorrow server reliant rentals.

There's also the whole ownership thing, with digital you have a license to access the material - which theoretically can one day be taken away from you.

On the other hand physical stuff takes up physical space in your house and if you want to be a heavy consumer of media and entertainment it could be pretty sizeable clutter - though some see that 'clutter' as a desirable collection.

What do you think? Are digital collections good?

Modern Video Games / Are you hyped for dat Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee!?

Because I am.

Given that Red Dead Redemption 2 is so excellent, it's somewhat painful to experience any other open world game.


Have you ever played something and thought 'damn this is better than anything that came before and any other game coming out right now'?

I experienced this with several games. Games used to be able to blow my mind and captivate me to the point I wanted to play them all the time.

Here's my list of games that did this:

Super Mario World (SNES) - 1990
Super Mario Kart (SNES) - 1992
Super Mario 64 (N64) - 1996
Pokemon Yellow (Gameboy) - 1999
Halo: Combat Evolved (OG Xbox) - 2001
Super Smash Bros. Melee (GameCube) - 2001
Halo 2 (OG Xbox) - 2004
Resident Evil 4 (PS2) - 2005
The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (XB360) - 2006
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim (XB360) - 2011

At the time these games came out they were absolutely sensational.

Nothing has blown my head off like these in the last 7 years. Sad times my homies.
