Jesus they really need to start packing these on blurays (for PCs).
And we all had DVD players when they started selling games on DVD, right? And we all had CDROMs when they started selling games on CD, right? And we all had 3.5" floppy drives when they started selling games on 3.5" floppy drives, right? They can do both. It just makes sense to migrate to Bluray over time for physical media.

Well I had to go with Bell Fibe this time around but I managed to get a 2 year deal for 15/10 Mbps for $50 per an no caps. And I've no complaints so far.
Yeah, this new rig I built is the first time I've forgone a DVD player. I was going to get a Bluray for it but like Task says seeing as you have to buy 3rd party software for it...fuck that noise. Any physical media now should be coming on USB keys at this point.

Another console ARPG-shooter? No thanks. Maybe when it hits the bargain bin.

Capitalism is built on the illusion that anyone can get rich and just like the lottery the odds are always against you. One winner and millions of losers. Las Vegas is living proof of that illusion. Capitalism like communism is a failure in practice. A socialized democracy is best for the majority. Or as are good friends the Vulcans are so fond of saying, the needs of the many outweigh those of the few or the one.

I wouldn't exactly call using VPN/Proxies to access a subscription service your paying monthly for piracy. It isn't exactly legal to circumvent the geoblocking but its a bit disingenuous to call it piracy.
The irony of it is that by pushing Netflix to go after VPN users they're actually pushing people from using a paying service to piracy.

Actually, I pretty much only played the games for the singleplayer. Really loved ODST, Reach, and Halo 4 in particular.
Why the hell aren't we getting THOSE on PC?
Because MS doesn't give two shits about PC gaming? Because they think we're a bunch of dirty pirates? I mean, look at how poorly Steam is doing.
Shorter answer: MS has its head up its ass.
