    You're not wrong, but colloquially, video game releases these days are generally referred to as physical or digital. When a game has no physical release, it's referred to as "digital-only". I've never heard anyone refer to games without a physical release as "download games" or "download-only".

    Well, the big mystery game turned out to be Jak and Daxter. The first batch of its CE is already sold out, but standard copies are still available. Same deal with Shantae and the Pirate's Curse for Switch. They're also selling Headlander for PS4 today.

    Another surprise, last-minute announcement from LRG, but thank goodness, it's a totally open preorder this time. Starting at 10am Eastern today, they'll be selling Sigil for PC for the next two weeks. Even the CE version of it is an open preorder.
