I guess I'm just gonna cling to physical copies of stuff until I die. I just don't like the idea of paying full price to rent something indefinitely. If I wanna play Dragon Quest on the NES I always can no matter where I live or what NES or NES ripoff console I have until the hardware itself breaks down, and even then I could make a backup of it with the right hardware. But if I get a new computer, or move to somewhere with (hypothetically) no internet, I can't take any of my games with me. I also can't choose to play them without installing and going through Steam.

Just seems like a raw deal. I guess the fact that I get most of them on sale makes them worth the cheap price, but still, it sucks not owning something you spent money on.

Lately I've been doing research on the way Steam treats some of its customers, and on digital ownership in general. And I have to say, I do not like the idea of digital ownership unless I can download what I bought and physically store it. But where else am I going to get PC games? GOG?

Thanks guys! Might pick it up :) I really have to be in the mood to sink my teeth into a deep strategy game like that, though

Crusader Kings II is on sale for 10 bucks right now. I've always been pretty interested in it because it seems like a cool strategy game and I'm interested in that period of history, but a lot of people complain about Paradox nickel-and-diming people through DLC.

So, is the game still good without DLC? Are there a couple essential DLCs worth picking up? Should I not be giving Paradox my money? What's up with this?

I'm available pretty much any time of the day - not on Tuesdays would be more convenient for me, but that doesn't mean I can't do them.

That is a valid point. Like, a video game book club idea is cool but it takes a lot of time and commitment to sit down and play a game and they're also often much more expensive than books. So maybe we could put that idea on the back burner until we've tried out this podcast thing in general?

Also, how should we keep in contact as a group and what do we use to call? Skype? Discord? I just got Discord, so if anyone wants to use that, that'd be cool. Not sure if it's more reliable than Skype. Seems like Celdur has it, dunno if Erops or Ry do.

There's a link for a group.

That's a really cool idea, I like that. And yeah, that was a bummer :(
