@quarters: It's a problem if you have a wife/significant other or kids that aren't into games, and the console is hooked up to a common TV. At this point, my Xbox is used more as a Media Center Extender (yup, I'm the one guy who actually uses that stuff) or Plex than for games.
Some threads have popped up on reddit noticing new game assets that add skins, alternate items, silenced weapons, and such to the game. I'm curious as to what the community's thoughts are on this. Personally, I'm fine with them in the casual modes, but trying anything that monkeys around with the competitive mode is a bad thing.
Okay I got CS:GO a bit back. how do you even find a good server in that shit. I keep ending up in these stupid fucking prison break games.
Use the matchmaking. All of those servers are "pure".
7. The broadcasts for F1 are actually handled in a weird manner -- most race footage comes from a "world feed" from a broadcaster in the host nation with local commentary & play-by-play uses (this is how NBC Sports does it in the US). As for the mics, they use a in-helmet mic for the radio, so they don't need to worry about stuff like wind noise as much.
