I'm all for attempting to have cool and calm political discussions, but when you begin your thread implying "all out war" is coming that's not very calm.

There are some 7-11s or gas stations in my area that now carry local beer. So you might be able to find something better than your typical, cheaper beers.

However, totally get a typical, cheap beer. Everyone starts there, it'll give you a good idea what beer tastes like and you can suffer like the rest of us did. I used to chew gum while drinking Natural Light in order to not taste the beer. Especially that damn aftertaste.

More than likely any rumored hardware change will be closer to what the Xbox 360 did in its first year or so of existence (and what most hardware does over time). They'll switch out parts that are cheaper, parts easier to find or cheaper to attain, and overall make the Switch just a bit better.

Is it worth the wait? Probably not. Maybe the changes will fix some of the smaller outstanding problems reported (joycon issues, etc.) but more than likely the benefits will be slight. Even if the graphics chip is changed out, Nintendo wouldn't create a point of difference great enough to matter to original Switch owners.

No reason to. They own the prominent PC platform and as long as they maintain a place for people to sell their games there is no need to jump onto consoles.

No.

DC just hasn't grabbed a hold of me in the ways Marvel did. DC feels like it's in a rush to get to the big moments while Marvel slowly builds to them (or tosses them aside). That in addition to the below average writing and overly bombastic action scenes gives me enough reason to skip the movies.

If by boycotting you mean people not buying a game, then totally. Every developer, publisher, and PR company follows the sales of their games. Even further those games keep metrics of how you and I interact and use their game. Buy a lot of loot boxes? They know. Download DLC? They know. Skip the campaign and only play multiplayer? They know.

So your purchase says something to them. If consumers decide to skip a game, they'll notice. Ubisoft noticed slipping Assassin's Creed sales, and lower review scores, and decided to give the franchise a break.

It's not as clear cut or organized as a boycott, but neither are boycotts. No game boycott will escape the Modern Warfare 2 boycott group on Steam that, on launch day, were all playing the game.

It's best to vote with your dollars, wait for reviews, and don't get caught up in hype.

When handled correctly, almost none of these are a real problem for me. Each has spent their time as a whipping boy for Youtube critics, but for the most part companies handle their roll-out and design fairly.

What's really baffling to me is the ire these systems receive and yet players just keep using them. Pre-ordering a game gives you little benefit and sometimes traps you into purchasing a bad title, and yet pre-orders continue. Loot boxes are reviled and yet several titles find immense success with them.

Predatory practices of any kind are obviously not welcome, but overall none of these practices are outright anti-consumer.

I am supremely curious to see how Doom runs on the Switch.

@shivermetimbers: Maybe that'll be a nice piece of nostalgia for me since I did play a lot of those older Medal of Honor games.
