So everybody is apeshit about this game.
But how are FPS games differentiating themselves these days? Playing team deathmatch with your buddies or on a pub server is pretty worn out at this point.
It's running dedicated servers on the cloud. As far as the hype.... I think it's well justified. As I said earlier, I had zero interest in the game. Just another shooter I thought. I played the beta and geeked the fuged out. From "death match" to attrition (a conquest, domination vibe), not only are you dealing with players but also bots and specters (which can be hacked and in turn used on your team).
I got an early halo vibe. I'm going to act like a teenager and go to the midnight release then stay up all damn night. If anyone wants to squad up post your xbone gt and lets do the damn thing.
