Notable stuff we talked about that you should talk about too!

Are we excited for Warlords of Draenor?
Does Rise of the Tomb Riader's exclusivity on Xbox One bother you?
Do people have a right to complain about exclusives?

Anyone who owns a Skylander toy or Disney Infinite paraphernalia is dumb, unless there are kids about. And even then, why anyone would be happy with the gaming equivalent of PSX Spyro-Lite and figurines fit only for a Happy Meal is beyond me.

I wish I could sustain the vitriol. AJ isn't dumb.

Regarding exclusives, I tend to fall outside of the norm in not owning a current gen console, and having only ever owned Sony hardware for the last few cycles. The only exclusives I miss are the Halo games, and I feel pretty confident that they would have been markedly successful on PC if Halo 3 had made the jump, even with GFWL...but suits would have seen the hardware sales propensity, and you can't argue with such projections.

That's the only exclusive I can think of that matters to me and makes sense to free itself solely from the shackles of the Xbox. I wonder if Ensemble would still be around, had Halo Wars been made for PC as well? The closest relative would been Tom Clancy's EndWar (PC, 360 and PS3), and since Ubisoft shelved the sequel, the longer I ponder, the more despondent I get.

I'm so conflicted! Dumb? Not dumb? Selectively dumb?

- I don't play WoW so I can't really comment on the expansion.

- It was stated afterwards that the game is a timed exclusive as you gentlemen discussed

- Exclusivity can be an inconvenience, but in this day and age can be more damaging for the dev/publisher more than anything. I don't think people should complain about it as devs/publishers being hard headed about the game being on one system can be shots in their own feet, UNLESS they can't release the game on other platforms due to hardware limitations (which is pretty rare at this point).

- And no, AJ is not an idiot.
