REVIEWS Etrian Odyssey 2 Untold: The Faf Review
I dunno what a "Fifnir" knight is, but damn is he scary-lookin'. And his game... it's pretty damn good too.

FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Tell GR: Will You Stick With Retail Or Go All-Digital With Your Next-Gen Console?

Posted on Tuesday, October 15 @ 15:55:11 Eastern by


On November 15th and November 22nd, launch days for both Xbox One and PS4, it's expected that you'll be able to download all of the games you want to play. In fact downloadable games could be considered the best reason to get an Xbox One this holiday with Killer Instinct and Peggle 2 chief among several digital XBLA games.

Microsoft's XBLA or Xbox Live Arcade seemed to get the digital-download ball rolling with great exclusives, but it seems like Sony's PlayStation Network has the lead offering a better digital package with full games frequently launching the same day as retail. I think I'll probably go all-digital on next-generation consoles. I think my shelf would look a lot better without a bunch of plastic cases holding shiny bagels on it.

What about you? Will you cling to retail or embrace a hard-drive, minimalist life, and extra bandwidth? Obviously we'll continue to have a soft spot for collector's editions, but it might be nice to get rid of some crap, right?
