Just a quick show note since I forget to bring it up at the beginning of this episode: No show next weekend.
There’s double dipping in a number of different ways be it comic books, video games, movies, music, etc. It’s not something I do a lot of, though I have bought the DVD, Blu-Ray, and 4K version of the same film before. I’ve done it with games with remasters and remakes. But then there’s collector double dipping. It’s when you buy two of something with the intent on keeping on completely sealed and never opening it, while the other is the one you actually use.
That is VERY rare for me with the exception of comic books back when I would collect those. With video games, it may have only been done once for me. In fact, I’m looking around my room now to see if I can find any examples and there aren’t any. The one single example I have is sitting in another room. And it never started out that way, but I explain it in the show.
In the meantime, Ubisoft, it’s been 2,728 days since the last Splinter Cell release (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise or VR exclusive).
