Now it feels official. Really excited to finally get to go to PAX!

Would you trust a single movie critic?
While I understand your concerns and mistrust I don't understand why you would take any single review as law. Especially a game relying on an online service. Granted this failure of server side support really didn't pop up until 2013 so I can see why you'd feel blindsided by this distance gap between reviewer and finished product.
Game reviewers have a hard time when it comes to reviews compared to other forms of media. Movies, books, and albums are static products. A movie seen 2 weeks before release won't change on opening day. A video game doesn't follow the same format.
For any reviewer to stay relevant he/she must review the game beforehand not only to get the views you need to survive as a website but also to give a purchaser the advice they want when venturing out to a store.
It comes down to quite a lot of factors. Can you wait to play the game? If it's online required, can you wait to see how that works out? Can you trust the reviewer's (not the website but the actual writer) review? Is the review talking about what you're looking for/enjoy in the game?
Keep all that in mind and more than likely you'll enjoy more games on your shelf and not be sitting and staring at error screens and broken games.
For me, I wouldn't mind seeing that. Or at least no campaign and a reallocation of resources from the 'radio play' campaign to the multiplayer.
I usually play through the campaign because sometimes the multiplayer is a bit stressful when compared to the campaign. It helps break up the tone of the other modes and helps diversify the game overall.
My Xbox One stays on the most. Mainly for TV, Netflix, Youtube, and most recently streaming movies from my computer. If my network isn't bogged down by my roommates I can switch between any of these apps really easily and despite some small complaints (for instance the Netflix and Youtube apps have different controls) they all work as advertised. It really does bring my entertainment options together and lets me avoid the constant input switching of the past.
For playing games both have seen about an equal amount of time. Neither have seen much use for games since launch however. I should jump back into Forza and Battlefield but my downtime has seen me play older 360 and PS3 games instead.
None of the newer releases have convinced me to buy anything for the newer consoles either. Titanfall isn't worth my money in my opinion and I may just wait until Second Son comes out to see if it's worth purchasing.
@sammo21: I feel the exact same way about Infamous 2. Parts were incredibly well thought out and others were just strangely out of place. I assume it came down to a schedule and what would and wouldn't work as an overall package.
@mento: I discovered this having kicked around a movie wiki for awhile. You'd be surprised how many "cancelled" projects will suddenly come back with a different name but mostly the same info. So keep them around on the wiki could actually be easier, in the long run, for the moderators and wiki editors.
And it's cool to see what could have been.
I've never been much of a fan but I have enjoyed myself some South Park. As someone who is more of a casual fan if anything, would I still be able to enjoy this game?
