it's simply not sensible for companies to cut off the access to your media nilly-willy when that means most of the time you'll stop being a customer as well. there's also still a license in place depending on the platform, the second steam goes down for good you can bet your ass lawsuits pop up everywhere, and depending on the outcome it might change people's enthusiasm towards the whole thing - which companies don't want either. that's why they gonna make sure you'll always be able to access your shit to consume and buy more, else it they won't make any more money, and that's all there is to it.
The games/services that have shut down don't get any fanfare. When Nintendo shut down the e-shop, no one cared because 99.99999% of people had moved on, and only archival spergs like me cared. Same goes for when Steam dropped win XP support. People raged, but a surprising amount defended Valve, and after a week or two no one gave a shit. At least with PC there's piracy and GoG, but consoles don't have that back up.

The only games I see people upset about for any length of time are Silent Hill 2, and licence games like Ultimate Alliance and Scott Pilgrim.

Actually funnily enough E-shop roms did make it to a physical format.

A few companies put out officially branded mini consoles from the likes of Capcom, Data East, etc. All the roms on there were from the e-shop. This is why Final Fight 1-3 are included, those are all the original e-shop roms.

(one of the reasons cinemas try their hardest to sell you an "experience" now). there's no "need" to have them available to you whenever you want
That's sort of back to basics in a way if you think about it. For all its faults gaming embracing digital is a good sign, services might go away but digital won't go away or get replaced in the same was as different physical media. The music and movie industry have aggressively fought change through the years only to adapt well after it's a detriment to their customers. Especially the executives of the music industry, that's a 100+ year history of absolute mental invalids.

Game journalist Mary Gushie, known for the incredible article "How Toxic Online Culture is Affecting Women" had a mini meltdown on Twitter after getting called out on being a hypocrite in regards to sexualising and objectifying women.

Here's the initial tweet that sparked it:

Other people did some digging and found tweets of her objectifying Lady Dimitrescu from RE8 and Quiet from MGS 5. She attempted to explain why she's not a hypocrite in a follow up tweet (keyword being attempted.)

Because as we all know, asking a woman to step on you and do bad things to you totally isn't objectification, just go and say it to an attractive woman outside, I'm sure she'll be delighted to hear it!

She then tried to repeat herself hoping it would make people agree with her but the only other people who agreed with her are her simps and other retarded journos.

I'd get it's just attraction if one said "she looks pretty." Saying "I want her to step on me" isn't, it's just exuding a form of horny over some polygonal tits. Ridiculous as the butt shots can be because of gamer spergs, the mental gymnastics and the like from the other side won't be any less spergy.
Atraction: "That charcter is hot, I'd love her to murder me" "I'd love to be with that character"

Objectification: *showing closeup butt and boob"


Which one is the bad one, I'm confused, and how do OnlyFans factor into this?
Objectification is bad but lemme say I got a crush on the bikini sniper who breathes through skin that may not even really exist.

she still spergs like a degenerate bixesual twitterina™ and just like them makes no fucking sense or lojic when trying to not pass as a massive hypocrite.

not unless it becomes less convenient than physical or the attitude towards actual ownership changes. videogames for most people are now disposable products you consume and discard like music or videos (one of the reasons cinemas try their hardest to sell you an "experience" now). there's no "need" to have them available to you whenever you want when you only ever use them once and most people only ever use a few of all the available titles anyway. sucks but that's the way it is. fuck even I, who knows all that shit, still goes digital for a lot of stuff because I'm simply running out of space, and I don't really need a box of everything I consume.

not to defend digital, but another thing is that you only ever hear the individual horror stories and assumptions based on the worst case. for example it's simply not sensible for companies to cut off the access to your media nilly-willy when that means most of the time you'll stop being a customer as well. there's also still a license in place depending on the platform, the second steam goes down for good you can bet your ass lawsuits pop up everywhere, and depending on the outcome it might change people's enthusiasm towards the whole thing - which companies don't want either. that's why they gonna make sure you'll always be able to access your shit to consume and buy more, else it they won't make any more money, and that's all there is to it. issues affecting you personally have no bearing on the thousands or millions of people where it works without a hitch - not that a lot of the would care much to begin with, if netflix doesn't work that evening they'll just do something else or sub to amazon prime etc. (another reason they gonna make sure shit works).
thanks for the input and the example i gave being online gaming is somewhat specific, for instance: if Destiny goes kaput people will just despair since no pservers exist, whereas on a similar example of netflix it being WoW going kaput where their people will flock to the Latvian pservers that can't be C&D by blizz. my cent towards boxes is pick something you can sell later on like collector editions because they get value over time and some people might buy because that gives the "xclusivity" feels for the goodie dedicated consoomers they are, whenever possible digital is optimal, that's why cinemas do shit like extreme 6D with Xtreme digital audio, not everyone has a bouncy chair to synchronize with the movie... yet and they still search for ways to make people visit them because tech is ever forward with shit archiving systems that aren't patents...

I wonder how much Google is paying outlets to not cover the Stadia being shutdown and that 100% of all Stadia users have lost all their libraries or if so few people bought the Stadia and played it, that only a few people have noticed it and therefore it's not news.

All digital will never happen, if Apple went full retard into music and caused records to be revived, games will have a similar thing happen.

Limited Run games just put out a notice that they're now a big enough company to have even more open preorder numbers and possibly engage in second or third runs for in demand titles.
I posit you're reversing the symptoms and the cause. The issue isn't "Digital v. Physical", that's the symptom. The issue is access and ownership. An entirely digital product that you have ownership and agency over is just as much yours as a physical one you purchased, sometimes more. gog games are one of the best examples: you pay once to get access to a one-click .sh or .exe and then can do whatever you want with it. You can make copies, burn it to physical media, extract and repack it if you're really fancy, but it's still yours. No matter what happens to CD Projekt Red as long as you downloaded local copies your purchases will always work.

The most entertaining part is that Drinker was probably laughing his ass off at her the entire time so she basically gave him what he wanted....an hour of entertainment as he gets shitfaced.

CBS journalist predicts Bucs will win Super Bowl with Brady, because Madden NFL 21 said so.



Something about that statement makes me concerned for sports gamers. Do they treat sports games as if they’re all knowing and can’t do no wrong?

Honestly, did they even look at the user reviews for MADDEN 21 on Metacritic? :story:
and then the buccs won

Pretty late to the party here.

So they are remaking the series? And they are cutting content?? What the fuck?
Remastering, not remaking. Only confirmed content removed is Pinnacle Station, which they claim the source code for has been lost or corrupted. No big loss, it was terrible anyway.

Oh, and something something they're changing a camera shot to not have Miranda's ass taking up a quarter of the frame, aren't they wonderful and progressive and woke?

Don't forget about ME3's multiplayer being removed too. There are people out there that generally enjoyed it.
