I'd personally prefer to buy it. There's something about having a physical copy and a digital copy... if it's gone digitally, I can just use the disc.

When it comes to PC I just find it to be a thousand times easier to just purchase the disc instead of downloading it. It takes an unprecedented amount of time to be able to download a game onto my computer with my pitiful internet connection. I like to download games onto my 3DS though, I just like being able to go to them instantly without having to worry about misplacing my cartridges.

I'm hoping you mean legally downloading not torrenting. But yeah the disc is way better to get.

    well i will assume you want it for pc i would download it that might be just being lazy because that's what i did if you are getting it from a torrent then well for a game like skyrim there are a billion cracks so ya have fun with that and dlc is a pain to put on it

    make sure your pc can run it before you buy it

    Yeah, make sure your PC is up to system requirements or the 60 bucks you just spent is useless. Skyrim is a hard game to run for many PC's

      Hey there gossamer, just merging your thread in here. It's more of a "Quick Question" than a warrant for proper discussion.

      This thread was moved... this was about Metroid, right?

      If so, then I'd recommend Metroid: Zero Mission and Metroid Prime.

      Zero Mission is an enhanced remake for the GBA of the original NES game. Aside from the visual and audio overhaul, the gameplay and control has been enhanced and tightened and it plays more like Super Metroid - which Metroid fans absolutely adore. It's the first entry in the series story-wise, so if you care about that that's a plus too, even if the plots aren't too heavy or connected among all the games. Has some extra areas not in the original NES game too.

      Metroid Prime is both the second game in the progression of the overall story and the first entry in the Prime subseries. It is without question a masterpiece and one of the best games from its generation. If you can, play the Wii version because you can aim with the Wiimote.

      With those two titles you have very solid repersentations of both the 2D and 3D Metroid games

        Awh sweet, thanks million! I'll most likely buy the GBA version as my NES is acting moody lately. And I've been looking for some Wii games to play so that's perfect! Thanks a million! x

          I have a game called Oblivion, and it's a game in a series of games called Elder Scrolls. I have the base game, and I have a disk called Knights of the Nine. It contains all of the dlc you can get. At first, I didn't care about it because I thought it only contained Knights of the Nine... then I loaded it up because I want KOT9, and my jaw dropped when I found out it had all of them. I installed them all, and they worked without a problem (I got all the quests and stuff), and so I had fun with them. I hadn't done the KOT9 part yet, so I decided I was going to make a new character that was going to be a Knight and focus on heroic stuff, like the Knights Of The White Stallion quest. So I made a dude, and I went through the tutorial and got through the sewers. I was really excited to try KOT9, so I rushed to Anvil to find The Prophet (I had done some research before hand), but he wasn't there. I waited about a week in the game, and he still didn't show up. So I went around all the cities and asked various people about rumors, because I read that that's another way to find out about the attack on anvil. But I asked LOADS of people about it, but I still didn't find out. Just stupid stuff about Uriel's murder :pink_tongue:. I checked the data files on the Oblivion launcher to make sure it was ticked, and it was. I noticed the master file (Oblivion.esm) was unticked, so I ticked it. I tried loading it up again just now, in case it worked this time, but it didn't. So I need help with getting it to work.

          If you need anymore information involving this problem, don't hesitate to ask. I've tried reinstalling it twice, but it makes no difference.

            i cant remember much about KoN but from what i can i believe you have to be a certain level in order to initiate the DLC quests. also i believe that level would be 10. i could be wrong as i usually just play the original oblivion disc on 360 and not the expansions but the lvl 10 requirement for DLC are common in TES.

              Ah... he is level one. :pink_tongue: I'll see if it registers on my main character. They're beyond level ten.

              EDIT* Just tried it, and there's still no Prophet, and there's still no mention of the attack. Any other ideas for me? :pink_smile:

              EDIT** Does it matter about the characters I have, or do I have to have finished a different quest beforehand? Someone please help! :pink_confused:

              EDIT*** (I know, I'll stop doing edits soon! :pink_tongue:) I think the problem with my main character is... he's kind of... got a lot of Infamy. That might be why The Prophet isn't showing up. I'll get my Knight up to level 10 or so, and then see if he's there. He's level 2 though... anyone got a way for me to level up quickly (without thieving or murder)? :chu: <-- I love that smiley!!!! <3

                Hello all! ( Not sure if this is the correct forum ) I am soon going to get a DS for Christmas thought i am not sure which of all them to pick, I am generally going to use it only for Pokemon may play something else thought still probably only pokemon so i was wondering which of all the DSes should i get for it? I looked around and saw that most people say DSi thought still i am not sure because as far i understood future pokemon games will be only 3DS so might aswell buy now one and save money later. And if you do agree for getting a 3DS would you also recommend XL? Thanks!

                  I personally wouldn't recommend the XL because the touch screen is quite pix-elated on that console. Probably get a 3DS if you're considering a long term investment.

                  A 3DS would be a good console to pick, since some Pokemon games will be on that console, plus...you can play older Pokemon games like HG/SS on there so there is no need to obtain an older DS console. A 3DS (probably a 3DS XL) is a better choice.

                  also, I heard DSi and DSiXL are bad in terms of touchscreens, so I shall second Drakow there.

                    I personally recommend a 3DS (XL). I haven't tried a 3DS XL, but they say the larger screens are better, and it is generally more sturdy than the regular 3DS. Plus the 3DS XL has some good offers with pre-installed titles like Super Mario 3D Land or Mario Kart 7 for free so you are saving the cost of a game (plus technically with the price of these separately for 3DS vanilla, you got a 3DS XL). By the way, screen resolution shouldn't be a factor between systems, really. 3DS (XL) alike have a subpar pixel density.

                      Hey there. I recently tried going on my wii, but it doesn't read any of the disks. I have tried inserting the disk both sides, resetting the wii, resyncing it, nothing seems to work. Does anyone have a solution?

                        Thanks. They are retail. Should I get someone to work on it? Or would it be better just to get the new Wii U instead?

                            Ok so I'm planing on getting my (Online brother) an N64 (Nintendo 64 for those of you that may not know) and I have one myself but I need some opinions on some games to buy for him. Keep in mind he's 23 years old.


                            He also likes RPG's and I understand that the N64 didn't sell well do to its lack of RPG's but I still want to get him this system because I think he'll like it.


                            So I was thinking about the following games (if I can find them and no sorry I'm not allowed to order online): Megaman 64, Super Paper Mario, bomberman 64, 007, Kirby 64.ect

                            I'm thinking about getting him those I'm wondering what else I should look for I have a store that I go to and I know the guy has the system I just need your folks opinion on what other games I should get him.

                              The N64 was my first console. Here are some suggestions:

                              - Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
                              - Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
                              - Paper Mario
                              - Super Mario 64
                              - Jet Force Gemini
                              - Goldeneye 007
                              - Perfect Dark
                              - Banjo-Kazooie
                              - Conker's Bad Fur Day
                              - Pokemon Snap
                              - BattleTanx: Global Assault
                              - Star Wars Shadows of the Empire
                              - Star Wars: Rogue Squadron
                              - Super Smash Bros.
                              - Kirby 64
                              - Mario Kart 64
                              - Donkey Kong 64

                              Hope this helps.

                              Paper Mario is an RPG, so he may really like that one. The Legend of Zelda games for the N64 are also legendary...my personal favorites in the series.

                              You may just have to order online, though, because some of these are pretty hard to find in stores nowadays due to the console's age and the popularity and rarity of some of the suggestions.

                                Hope this is the right spot for this, ok, I have a 3ds, a pokemon game that I like to trade online with and an AR, problem is it connects fine w/o ar in it but when I go to connect with the ar in it tells me there is no access point in range, what is causing this? I don't have this issue with my ds lite and the same ar inserted in it at all.
