Collectors edition of FFXIV. I'd have probably bought the disc version of Bioshock as well if Bell hadn't offered unlimited data again a few months ago.

Diablo 3 is the last game I bought a physical copy for. Before that? Diablo 2. (Unless you count The Sims 3 : Pets for my wife?)

I got RPG Maker yesterday for 1/2 off. Only paid $15 thanks to Gamestop credit

I'm 99% sure that the last game I physically bought was The Sims 3...

Choices for the Mac while living in Denmark were few and far between. It was basically The Sims 3...or The Sims 2.

I seem to be one of the few who can actually play the game so it's not all bad. My game seems to be bugged though, can't see city outlines nor the transfer grid of water/power/sewage that flows to/from buildings.

I do wish I had bought it digitally though and saved the extra $5 I paid in taxes as the packaging was just a disk and an activation code basically. Good 'ole "Manual is on the disk".

Disc based I have Guild Wars 2, Baseball Mogul 2010, then some weird MMO I don't even remember the title (I didn't know it was an MMO when I bought it, looked like a sweet post-apocalyptic shooter).

Hard copy? the last I bought was Spore and when I found I could not get Empire:TW on release day at the local shop, was the day I discovered Steam and other digital services. Never looked back.

Hard Copy Games: SC2: WOL and Diablo 3. None since then all digital. EDIT: Though once all the Skyrim DLC is released i'd like to get a PC boxed copy of a GOTYE.

For hard copies, forgot to add Dirt 2 to my list because I wanted to play it with a friend of mine. The disc copy was $13 on Amazon, a copy on Steam was $40...

Is the multiplayer hopping? I might end up rebuying the game if it means I can play multiplayer again.

Yeah hellgate was an ARPG now that I think of it, and wasnt a full blown shooter if at all. Just came to mind because its post apocalyptic I think. Haha.

Sleeping Dogs is on sale for $9.99. They have a package for ALL the DLC without the game for $16.94.

OR you can scroll down. Hit add all DLC to cart for $16.77

Just letting you know, you cannot remap the arrow keys for movement... how ****ing stupid... It's probably the reason I haven't played it yet.
