Yeah there are lot of mechanics stacked on top of the COD core of the game but the shooting itself (which is the core of any FPS) feels like COD. Which isn't a bad thing the core mechanics of COD feel very good. Stacking all those extra mechanics on top of the COD mechanics makes them slightly interesting again.

Check out Rogue Legacy it's one of the best games I've played recently.

If multiplayer is more your thing I've been playing Loadout it's one of the first free-to-play games I've actually enjoyed.

I had access to the Titanfall beta if Call of Duty with Mechs sounds cool to you then you'll probably like it. The whole game is much better implemented than COD.

The Dolphin Emulator Devs finally fixed some major problems with Wind Waker in the latest snapshot so I've been going back to that.

For upcoming games the two I'm most anticipating are The Witness and No Man's Sky. Though I'm highly skeptical of No Man's Sky. It's incredibly ambitious for the small team working on it.

Potentially it can keep going until the size of a transistor is just a few electrons across but as we get closer to that point quantum teleportation becomes more of an issue. This is cool video that explain some basic stuff about transistors and the end of Moore's Law.

Most likely they're not lying. It's not built for advertising. The fact that they will be able to use it for advertising is just incidental. Personally I will not buy a Kinect. If they want to try to sell me a Xbone without a Kinect there may be a chance of me buying it shortly before hell freezes over.
