Not suprised.

Didn't they say a 8GB install of the MP was mandatory? Or did I hear that wrong?

8GB Flash Drive Recommended if you don't have a HDD, not mandatory.

Ah, thanks. Also, anyone know what the story with Sp-ops is? As in, when they say weekly content, do you have to download X amount of episodes per week or how is that being handled?

If there's 50 episodes in Season 1 alone....

I read there is a new episode each week with 5 missions pertaining to that episode.

I understand that, but are you required to manually DL these each and every week? How big is each episode going to be?

I see a hype poll was added. Just wondering if anyone has a proper hype thread in the works. You know, more fleshed out with lots of complete game details, screen shots, links to videos, and the sort.

Just sell the MP disc on ebay. Im sure there are people just like you except they dont care about the SP and just want to play MP. It would help recoup some of the cost of the game.

Obviously not, since you're buying it.

Why shouldn't I? It's one of the best games on the Xbox 360 and I own the console, so why not?

I'm not getting this on day 1. Instead it is being put on my Christmas list. Why? Because PS3 and PC has enough games to entertain me. ;)

I'd say a 9 minimum, 9.5 depending on how the campaign is.

Most likely what I'll do, just seems like they're missing out on a large demographic. I wouldn't care if it was digital either. I would spend $30 on that.

[QUOTE="DrTrafalgarLaw"] I don't play (online) shooters on consoles, with the exeption of StarHawk...I'm still not sure if I want to keep playing that...the 30 fps online gaming is just something I can't get used to. Don't even get me started on aiming with analog sticks...

Fair enough...at least you're consistent.

It's the same price as a SP game, but you get BOTH.

But, you shouldn't get it period because "Cows have too many decent exclusives to care about this average shooter." Come on now, don't backpedal too fast now--you'll trip, laddy.

I'm quite confident it'll score a 9. 343 has done amazing things with the franchise, both pushing it forward and keeping it's roots. It's well known many people from previous games are still on the team, so it's not like it's not without it's leaders. I'm very excited for a new trilogy and know it'll be the best shooter of the year.

True, but the bad thing about it is that other developers will try to get that big audience... :(

Just look at Resident Evil as an example.

It's just for multiplayer. The reason they aren't weirdly designed is to keep the hitboxes the same.

I care about the single player, but I don't see them fvcking that up, so I'm not worried about it. The MP, on the other hand...
