What is odder is that if they feel the need to censor the game in the UK why is it uncensored for PC gamers in the UK? Screw you guys, I'm going home...

We've been paying $60 for multiplayer only games for a while now. Basically the entire Battlefield franchise, most of post-Call of Duty 4 CoD games might as well be multiplayer only at this point..
If it is a good game, its worth the money.
I'd much rather see developers focusing on one or the other. Bill me full price for a single player game or a multiplayer only game but don't develop both single and multiplayer components and pretend to me that the same amount of quality will shine in both products.
I know this is an old post but I'll put the answer here. Yes. Game will end so there is a timer on the normal mode too, its a massive timer though.
However if you want to collect all collectibles you can't just explore, you have to go through all the missions and side-missions as locked areas will open up containing blue prints etc. Quite annoying that.
Bundling Kinect was the smartest thing Microsoft has ever done. Why? Because we need voice recognition technology to move on and develop. Having this in millions of homes will do to voice recognition what the PS2 did for DVDs. Siri should have done this but I don't know anyone who actually uses Siri, and I sure you lot don't know anyone either.
I've found the voice stuff on the dashboard to be so good that it has become my default way of launching games. This will be even more so in a few years time when I have 150 games in the system and not less than 10. I use it for Netflix (although why they made the "select 1" titles black out the programmes is beyond me… I've also found the voice recognition so good on the system that I miss it when I use another device.
I am scottish, I have a scottish accent and I have found that the new Kinect works about 99% of the time and the errors I get is me not using the right syntax for the command or I have the volume too loud to what I calibrated it with.
But, the beauty is that because everyone will have it Microsoft have to continually develop and improve it. Yes we need a more relaxed syntax, yes I would rather say "go to Assassins Creed" instead of "go to Assassins Creed 4 Black Flag" but it will get there. What we have now, as good as it is, will pale in to comparison to what it will be like at the end of this Xbox One generation and I think that is something to look forward to.
Im a huge Dead Rising fan so it was a system seller for me but as it stands by itself I don't think it's a system seller.
Titanfall, that's the first system seller of the next generation as I am sure we will see come March.
All I can assume is that there are a bunch of kids who have a next-gen system who haven't experienced a console launch before. After the launch titles it goes dry for months and you just have to be patient. It's the same for every generation.
Typically you also won't see really good stuff for 2-3 years after launch once the devs have got to grips with the hardware. As these consoles are just powerful PCs though this might be shorter this time around.
This goes for UI improvements too. If anyone can remember, when the Xbox 360 was launched you couldn't download something in the background. That's right, you had to select a demo to download and actually wait for it to finish before you could do anything else. Consoles evolve and adapt very quickly and it amazes me how quickly these things are forgotten.
Watch dogs and titanfall in March. Not too long to wait. There's also Dark Souls 2 and Stick of Truth to look forward to.
Or you could do a Cartman and freeze yourself in the snow until March?
Can't believe someone did a post on their thoughts after holding the thing in a store for a few minutes… I've held a PS4 controller in the store, didn't like the triggers but until I buy a PS4 and play with it for a few weeks I am reserving judgement.
L1 and R1 buttons are actually very good on the Xbox One controller when you get used to the new layout. As explained before you just roll your finger up to hit them and therefore you can actually have the same finger hit the trigger simultaneously while you press the bumper.
The controller is a lot better than the 360 as it feels more refined, especially the triggers. The triggers are amazing.
My only gripe is that the left hand side of the casing on the controller is a bit loose. Jeff did mention this briefly in a video once but he wasn't sure if he was imagining it or not. He's not. When I hold mine in just my left hand you can feel it come away a bit (tiny bit) under the weight of the controller. Maybe it's just mine though and maybe there are batches out there which are more solid.
