Aussie Bargain Roundup: Wolfenstein Youngblood

by Daniel VuckovicJuly 23, 2019

Here’s an odd bargain guide, because it’s a digital bargain guide essentially. In no market is there a physical, with-a-cartrdge version of Wolfenstein Youngblood. If you stocked up on eShop credit at 10% recently, the digital version is cheaper. 

But what about the Amazon pricing? Yeah it’s cheaper. But it’s also the US version. Seems kind of pointless to ship accross the world an empty box with a code you have to use on a different eShop store. 

Because Youngblood is a ‘co-op’ game, you’re really going to want the Deluxe edition so you can share the game with a friend and they can play through it with you. The ‘Buddy’ version of the game will be available from the eShop. 

Wolfenstein: Youngblood is out July 26th.

    No cartridge. Strike one. PC version requires Bethesda client. Strike two.

    Nobody asked for this to be a “budget” release, and the production values certainly don’t indicate that this is a “budget” game by any stretch of the imagination (even though the budget may be a little lower than usual owing to the fact that I presume that it’s recycling New Colossus’s engine/assets), so I don’t understand why they opted for such a stupid strategy which is resulting in an abysmal retail product. I assume that the other console versions include a Blu-ray?

    The Deluxe Edition could have been their way of justifying a mark-up and including a cartridge in the case. Now, I have almost zero faith in Bethesda’s treatment of Doom Eternal on Switch. As great as the Switch port of DOOM (2016) is, I regret ever supporting the physical release, which I had bought on day one in spite of all of the cutbacks.

    I would have bought Youngblood on PC instead if it shipped on discs and/or was playable via Steam, but seeing as they’re imposing the Bethesda client *and* cheaping out on discs, then they can get stuffed. At this point, I’ll only consider it now if it eventually becomes bargain bin fodder on Steam or the retail version is dirt cheap. As if it would kill publishers to include a Blu-ray or two rather than a stack of DVDs. If those without Blu-ray drives are forced to buy one, then so bloody be it. Why such enormous PC games are occasionally still shipped on DVDs is beyond me (and due to their slower read speed, take ages to install; perhaps even more so than downloading the game).
