    Games and music I use so rarely that I don't really have a preference for physical copies. But books and movies o agree 100%. Books and bookstores have actually made a comeback in recent years (as much as bookstores could make a dent on Amazon's dominance). E-books have largely failed, or at least stalled. People who read books still prefer physical copies over reading on a digital device. This is ignoring the rise of audiobooks, of course

    I get shit from pretty much everyone for still buying blu-rays though. Every Christmas my family asks "still collecting blu-rays?" And I say "yep!" Then they buy me the latest superhero or sci-fi movies. I think they're fine with it cause I'm pretty easy to buy for!

    Its not right to read a book on a screen.

    This probably should be in the Salty Sunday thread but there is nothing more infuriating to me than buying a new physical copy of a video game. I want the physical copy because I don't like to use up the space on my system. Put in the disc and you have to wait for it to fucking download anyway. Then you get the error that you don't have enough space to play the game so you have to go through and delete a bunch of shit just to start the download of your new game. After that if you want to play one of your other games you have to wait for it to download again and and delete a different game. It's a vicious cycle.

    Well because some people still appreciate, like and look forward to the creative artwork that often goes into cd tops, covers, back and potential inserts. Not to mention the information that comes with it.
    Some people like to be able to be unplugged listening to music and not be tied down to a phone, ipod or computer.

    So if thats what you wanna call it? Im down with that. The 90’s fucking rocked.

    So last night when I put in the disc for final Fantasy XV it made me download 70GB’s worth of patches. Took literally 3 hours before I could play it.

    I have a pretty massive collection of physical games, and my wife and I enjoy collecting them. Also relying on cloud services and online stuff for all my content sucks when I am disconnected from the internet.

    Slaps hard, definitely fits the current hip hop mold. Ironic the album with his son on the cover is the dirtiest of his discography.

    Biggest pet peeve with music these days are short songs. Couple that with only ten tracks and it is disappointing.

    In the end it's obvious Dame needs to focus more on his music and less on basketball. This release feels incomplete.
