    There’s no online co-op in Rayman: Origins, sadly. 🙁

      Really?  That freakin’ stinks.  It’s couch co-op only?

        Unfortunately, yeah.  Couch co-op only.

    I’m with Paul on this. I’ve bought every book in Terry Goodkind’s Sword of Truth series and some of those multiple times (lost in the move overseas) and have had no problems downloading the eBooks. I just don’t see why I have to pay again for the same product on a different ‘platform’. Same with Prodigy’s – Fat of the Land CD (4 times). 2 Broke, 1 Lost. I’ve downloaded the tracks because at this point I feel that they’ve had my cash.

    I also spend a chunk of my monthly income on the entertainment industry but I feel the distribution methods/selling models/ownership models are flawed right now.

    P.S. – SOPA is bad. (And soup in Spanish)

      Actually that’s a good point about the distribution methods being completely out of wack right now. I wish I could purchase some sort of “season pass” for select shows. Sort of buying access to them piecemeal. I’d gladly pay $5/mo for a show like Parks and Recreation or Breaking Bad. 

      I don’t like having to pay $70/mo to purchase access to their cable packages and end up only watching 5% of the product I’m paying for. 

      It’s funny, every April since I’ve moved to the states I pony up like $180 over a few months just to watch NHL playoffs because it’s the only way I can watch the games in HD. I have to buy extremely expensive cable packages just gain access to 2 channels…. bleh.
