So regardless of politics. And regardless of whether or not 6 days will take a contemporary tone or written simultaneously as referenced events my current curiosity is what kind of soundtrack we are going to get. I’d prefer something with known artists and punctuates the entire game much like I’m sure music did in the actual events. They can go as far down the billboard charts as can be affordable but I want my iPod. I want what metal gear solid 4 had. I’ve read the books and movies of the conflict and now I really want to play this game. So what’s the soundtrack? There’s so many ways to get this right. Like 3 Kings. If you are going to criticize this post please know that I’m not trying to be political where you might be. This game could be a 10.

@bigsocratesIt's almost like other sites read these boards and validate questions posed. https://www.gamespot.com/articles/why-gamestop-couldnt-capitalize-on-its-reddit-fueled-stock-rally/1100-6487540/
@raven10: I am confused. You're appreciative of what they did for you? Should be. Direct sales means you will pay more for your 2021 collection of games in 5 years than you would if gamestop were still around. Look at what's happing with PS5s. False demand. Substitute PS5 for Sackboy's Adventure and for some reason your physical copy's value is going to be north of $70 aka nobody is buying or selling so your disc is practically worthless. Or you can buy it whenever Sony whims it to be on their subscription drip feed or around $10. Games at the mid-tier (Six Days in Fallujah) need to march to zero for the democratizing of games. Quality games and Nintendo games need to hover at a reasonable price but should be available without shipping or traveling to far out of my zipcode. Gamestop enabled that. Short-term boohoo i can't flip my game for a profit a month or two after release. 5 years later you're getting that game for cheap. Gamestop still stocks DS games because... that model is brilliant for gamers and people that want to wonder into a shop and pick up a cool title. Instead we are sifting spreadsheets by price and buying games (all you steam buyers) because .. remind me why. That gamestop stock bubble is the gaming bubble... that too will play out in the same way. Choice paralysis.. The commitment to drive to the store and insert a disc might be why that parity of old gamestop purchases $$$ and current steam library $$$ spent doesnt mean you hold the later more closer to you than the former. That's adulthood speaking.
@bigsocrates: Gamestop is the last place that was bastion of obscure games and made buying a title not seem like a risky bet. Games on ebay are going to trend up in price. I think i've made a total purchase of 1 or 0 from ebay since it's inception. I'm not that pressed for anything to want to let it occupy rent free in my brain during the duration of a bidding war. I think i used ebay in its infancy when you could narrow sellers by location. Then i would just email them and conduct the sale like a typical craigslist purchase with my cash-in-hand having more value than the two in the bush.
This was a specific commentary on the Six Days in Fallujah potential bypassing physical because of the state of game sales. So how does that factor into your ebay? Default follow up response gamepass, steam and (circa 2018) epic games store sales weak argument?
Buying the shopping malls is diversification. Nintendo's physical model is probably the only thing saving gamestop right now. Once they release a pro model or lifetime joycon replacement program then i can pivot back into Nintendo who i have shunned for the better part of the last 2 decades.
This is more of a commentary of the world you live in than what could or should happen. More of what might have been. I have no issue and never have had issue with Gamestop's strong arming both sides of the transaction. I get a pretty cool store and a safe space. Digital has merit.. blah blah blah. Feel free to list them all, then select-all and ctrl-z for me. Wrong recipient on this text, my bad. But the only way i play Six Days in Fallujah is if it's on a gamestop shelf in a used condition and i can use some reward points to stave off the price. Or it hits gamepass by October 2021.. when I'm officially out of the gamepass infinite loop autocracy.
I don't know about you guys but looking at the footage for Six Days in Fallujah chills me in a certain way. If this game doesn't get a physical release I may NEVER play this game. As Gamestop loses its relevance and store shelves are devoid of anything but the top 50 games, yet alone actual used copies of these top 50 games (Waco, Texas has a copy do you want me to call them) in plentiful fashion, means that unless i pre-order (here come the drones about pre-orders) and since all of my friends are almost totally digital buyers i will have to actually spend real money to experience this title. It won't be part of a buy 2 get the 3rd free promotion. Nor will it be $0.99 like i saw metal gear solid V the other day. This game will probably require me to be subscribed to some recurring bank draft pyramid scheme or to plunk down full price in a pre-order or buy it digitally on sale for something that isn't $0. I don't like this. This game probably wont make it to the depleted Best Buy shelves or Walmart shelf. In a perfect world Gamestop would have kept its leverage and you could keep crying about your 2018 copy of Madden not being worth $58 in trade in credit in 2021. I have enough games and acquired enough years in life to never go fully digital. It just pains me to see. I wish gamestop could have leveraged it's stock price and shored up its value by buying the strip malls they reside in outright or buying a game studio or 2. This sucks. I don't expect you to understand. Only 80s and 90s kids do. Well at least the ones without an active Tik Tok account.
Whether your Factorio sleepless nights turned into a job at an Amazono distribution center. Or, your SimCity play style is now very much a part of Portland's transit design? No matter how small, what game most mimics your current employment situation?
Not being able to get a new console and thusly donating a 50" 4K TV to a family member coupled with a new, more demanding, job that requires alot more travel I have found myself setting new personal records of not consuming podcasts and also not refreshing the sites constantly. Now is starting to look like an optimal time to quit playing games for a while. Anybody else not own a console/pc just stick around for the drama?
@nameredacted: Pretty much nailed it. I really want some of those 3rd party Nintendo controllers, they look sweet so I probably wouldn't play my Switch with JoyCons enough to experience the drift. But perception will be reality and I'm not trying to live like that. Also, I don't like the dinky little flap they have for games. It seems cheap.
@bollard: Well if they announce some kind of compensation. I would probably buy one in the store same day. It's like going out to buy Cyberpunk once they announce refunds were becoming available. I guess I want to hear more about what you want. 2 Free Joycons? $60 in eshop credit? Etc.
So I'm on the verge of buying a Switch. I'm traveling more for work and I can't count on hotel TVs allowing hdmi access so Xbox and PS5 are out) I'm waiting for some class action stuff to come out. Think: If i could just start using PSN on April 17th 2011 (Great PSN Hack) and get my personal information hacked on PSN I could get inFamous for free making a foible quite fun and lucrative.
So the Joycons are a mess. Have always been a mess. They are acknowledged by Nintendo as a mess. But they have yet to face any government consequence. Everybody is quite content and happy despite the Joycon drift, but this won't last. I'm wondering what they will do when it comes time to replace joycons. What will Switch Lite users get? How many free nintendo games and gold coins do i get? Ambassador program? Price drop? I'm trying to time this.
