Review title of JawsDerpSharkWasted potential
Before I tear into this game, I wanna quickly mention the pros of this game: They nailed the elder scrolls environment pretty well, the provinces were well done, weapon and armor design is great, the voice acting is great, the music is god tier. over all, the atmosphere, environment, and mood all deserve a 9/10 at least! The online experience is mixed tho. Connection is **** a lot of time but when evry thing is in working order, good times and bants had by all..for the most part. I beg all of you tho, pls play w/ a group, this game will kill u w boredom on solo or give you fustration if played alone on pvp. that leads me to combat, it sucks, big time. all you will be doing is boring power attacks and overall the same **** all the time. no powerful finshers or elaborate system, just cookiecutter combat. ppl who have criticisms of skyrims combat system r goin to pull their eyes out. Story? same thing as oblivion pretty much. Overall, it HAD A LOT of potential, but Zenimax failed
Best answer: If you value convenience, Xbox Play Anywhere, or Game Pass above all, digital is your best bet. If you're motivated most by getting the best price, then you should buy physical games.
Digital downloads for Xbox one only come from the Xbox one store but I'd suggest not to buy now. Wait until the gold edition releases cause you just missed a 50% sale two weeks ago If you're seeking a disc.just look around for used copies but consider that you'll still have a 20-35 gig update to download so again.wait until the gold. Jun 14, 2015 - I bought eso for the Xbox one on Amazon and I was just wondering how. With 1 Mb/s net it'll take like 12 hours if you download it from steam, since. If you have any digital games, or if you ordered ESO on digital, you can. Digital Downloads and Installs. Last Edited: November 4, 2016 at 9:04 PM. Both disc-based Xbox One games and digital copies (through Xbox Live) can be purchased on day of release.

- GameStop: Pre-owned games
Some folks, including those who work here at Windows Central, have gone all digital to rid their lives of clutter, and that is a very valid reason. Some of us on staff have in excess of 250 titles in our collections, and that'd make for a mountain of physical discs and cases.
Digital doesn't also mean you have to stop buying games at your favorite retailers. You can go into a store or online to somewhere like Amazon or the Microsoft Store and hand over your cash in exchange for a download code, or for Microsoft Store credit to spend through your console.
Embrace your laziness and get rid of clutter with digital copies.
Then there's the ever-growing population of [email protected] titles from smaller developers. More often than not these are only available in digital form from the store. Likewise, if you want to take advantage of Xbox Play Anywhere or Xbox Game Pass, you're 100% reliant on digital downloads.
Physical discs might seem like they would have an installation speed advantage — for most gamers, the Xbox can read off the disc faster than it can download the full game from the internet — but that advantage has been mostly scuttled by the massive first-day download patches that have become par for the course for practically every major game release these days.
And finally, for those of us who hate getting up, digital copies allow you to fully embrace your laziness. You don't need to extract yourself from your comfortable spot on the couch to pop a new disc in. That physical discs install fully to the Xbox's hard drive and still require you to insert the disc to play makes a case for digital even stronger.
Xbox gift card
Keep your account topped up with credit.
Not only are gift cards great gifts for your loved ones, but they're a great way to keep your account topped up to buy games with, and a good alternative if you'd rather not leave a credit card attached to your account.
The case for physical is essentially a monetary one. As you're giving someone money for an object, you're not as limited to where you can get your games from as if you're buying digital. Sure, download codes are sold in a number of places, but discs are sold in more.
One of the big things you will nearly always see with physical copies of games is that prices drop a lot quicker than their digital counterparts. There are some ancient digital games on the Store that are still full price but can be had for peanuts somewhere like Amazon or your local game retailer.
Buying physical opens you up to buying pre-owned or trading in your finished games.
In-store deals are frequent among traditional retailers, and it's unlikely a week will ever pass by without there being something worth snapping up.
Buying physical also opens you up to buying pre-owned from places like GameStop and eBay, while also being able to trade in your finished games for money off something else. Once you've completed a digital title, it just sits there, paid for and with no further benefit to you. You can sell a disc online or trade in for credit on the next hot new game.
And of course, some of us enjoy having a collection, especially considering that special, collectors editions of games often come with a physical copy, not a download code. See the Rage 2 collectors edition as an example of that.
So which is best?
There's no right and wrong answer. Only you can decide what is best for you. Our recommendation is a little bit of both. It doesn't matter how you get your games just so long as you're getting what you want and you're happy with what you've paid.
There are distinct financial benefits to be had from buying physical copies which can't be ignored, but there are plenty of good and valid reasons for going digital. You can't go far wrong keeping your options open.
