I'm hugely excited for another Uncharted and totally bummed with the delay... but not surprised.

Fuck ads. So happy to be a premium member.
If an hour of a TV show's allotted time was 10-15% ads, I would have no problems with it. We seem to be at 35-40% now, so... fuck ads.
If a website had a couple banner ads and a skin, or a 15 second video pre-roll, I would have no problems with it. Multiple pop ups, auto play videos, and 30-90 second pre-rolls? Fuck ads. I have ad block turned off on a few sites I like that don't go nuts with the advertising, but I tried on a few others and had to turn it back on because it was aggressively annoying.
Bummer, I really liked that last one but I'm not buying an XBox for Tomb Raider... while I will buy a PS4 for Uncharted.
I'm not messing with PC games, never have. Every time I hear the guys on the podcast talk about how much easier gaming on PC has become, I kinda laugh because within the same pod they usually have also spent a bunch of time talking about some weird PC quirk or setup bullshit. Yes, it has gotten easier, but still not that easy. I could figure it out, but have neither the time or the desire to do so.
I have a question.
If you could pay 60 dollars, and then once every year Giant Bomb mailed you a disc (or bunch of discs) with all of the premium content for that year loaded on there, would you prefer that to your subscription? Right now, you're paying for the content and you don't even own it. My sub ran out (and based on Vinny+Alex and Dan+Jeff videos, I think I'm gonna re-up) and I no longer have access to a number of cherished videos. But if you had the discs, they'd be yours and no one could take them away from you. Also, you'd be able to put it on your shelf, which seems to be important.
Are you for transferring your subscription to a one-time transaction for a physical good that you can use whenever you want?
If you have a subscription, you can download the videos. Voilà, Cherished videos saved and available whenever you want them.
For me physical versus digital (on games) is simple, what is the cheapest earlier?
My budgeting, I give myself one full price game a year on release.
The rest of the time I wait. Many times I can get physical copies of games that came out 3-4 months ago for 30 bucks. If I wait for the inevitable holiday sales, cheaper still. The digital versions can take two years or more to hit that price (talking console stores, I don't PC game or use Steam).
