I support music I like by buying the albums I enjoy. If I am going to spend the money on something, I'm going to get the highest quality product possible. Large artwork, inner sleeve goodies and mp3 download codes are often included.
Maybe it's because I haven't played Halo in many years, but I am fucking shocked at how much fun I'm having with the competitive multiplayer. I thought I was done with this kind of shooter, especially on consoles. The gunplay and pacing just feels so fun to me.
