Its awesome. Way better then the last few, and it feels like a true MK. I cannot form your opinion for you, but as an MK fan I am glad that the series is back and I think its a great game. Already have the 360 version paid off.
The companies that are doing it, don't recieve money from USED/Rental games they are losing a share there to what really should be theirs, also it was to help stop piracy or deter those who do it. It probably wouldn't be a huge issue if Piracy wasn't so big on all platforms.
Anyways besides that, it comes down to the Publisher & Developer whether they charge or not, EA usually does now, and THQ has been for about a year. But recently EA didn't with Crysis 2, not sure why but they don't have an online pass and the game is amazing. Its the serial number on the console =S.
Also one thing that would be bad is it is rumored that for Sony to stop Piracy they are going to include a code that can only be used 5 times with the game disc, if this happens you will pretty much have to buy games new which will be a horrible option for the gaming community.
I usually don't pay for the online pass unless I know for sure that I want the game.
4 can be signed in to Xbox Live at once but the games you play are what really matter. Halo 3, ODST & Reach all allow 4 Player Co-Op but a game like Black Ops only allows 2 Player split screen. Use google with the game title you want to figure out if they can be played online with multiple people or splitscreen in general.
Usually yes. If the next game is Low or Very Low and you have a Medium/High/Available Now below that you will more than likely get those first.
So say you have "Skate 3" & "Bulletstorm" out but you want "MLB2K11" you would send back one of them say "Skate 3" and when "MLB2K11" is available to send out they will ship it to you. So you would have "Bulletstorm" & MLB2K11" at your house.

Judging by the ratings I would say that Astroboy for the Wii is a manageable game with a 60-70 out of 100 from multiple sources. Meaning its for those who are willing to suffer through some things if you are a fan of the series. So you have to ask yourself are you a fan of the series?
No but you may purchase it from the Online Marketplace or PSN for $10 (800msp) also you don't need it with Bulletstorm, you can still do the Echoes & Anarchy modes without it, my friend and I played about 5 hours of Anarchy Mode so far.
