There are good thing and bad things about Win8. Personally I think the bad things outweigh the good ones. I don't know that I'd Rage about it however, I kinda feel more of a smoldering indifference toward it.
An earlier poster said that 3DS is the Wii U's biggest problem, and although the Wii U has many other problems, I can see where he is coming from.
I know that Mario will sell well at Christmas and has long legs and all that, but at the same time I can't help but get the feeling that the fourth Mario game in a short period of time on four taped-together Gamecubes doesn't cut it anymore. And Lightning doesn't have anything to do with that.
@impendingfoil: I never had been super into the MP but Assassin's Creed MP is the only one of it's kind out there (in terms of console games) that has a cat and mouse feel with lots of mind games and is not completely dependent on skills and reflexes.
Yes, the MP seems kinda alright, I'll give it that.
Buying digital games to stop your pesky friends from borrowing them seems like a treatment of the symptom rather than the disease... ;)
Personally I'm staying with physical media, I don't find the current terms of digital distribution that the big companies use very agreeable. That being said, the convenience of going digital is obviously very nice. Especially the fact that, barring some theorethical force majeure that destroys the business-side of the exchange, your purchases are pretty safe from theft, fire and friends...
