On the plus side I am happy Assassins Creed is done with so I don't see it in the Sony conference. Microsoft have failed to impress me so I am happy as I atleast do not feel too bad for not being a Xbox One owner and missing out on the exclusives.
loved the no bullshit, liked the show of respect at the beginning, no real megas for me. SO looked awesome, Halo collection is cool, Inside looked amazing thats about it, the style of platinums game looked corny which i didnt expect. 7/10 for me.
-Sunset Overdrive: Honestly the best exclusive XBO has going until Quantum Break. I got a (good) Sonic vibe from the play footage and the humor was witty. It's just refreshing to see a big game that isn't be pretentious or epically serious for once, and a nice fun color scheme and art style.
-Lifeless: I love cosmology. I love sci-fi. So by default I'm at least interested in this.
-Cuphead: This one looks awesome. Very in the spirit of those older Warner Bros/Disney shorts. Looks to be a platformer of some sort. The visual style alone's got me interested.
-Drifter: This looked pretty cool.
-Dead Rising 3: Capcom Arcade Edition: Came out of left field, looks really wacky and fun. Guess it's as close to the spirit of the older games fans will get for a while, but it did look fun. Too bad I don't got no XBO to play it on
I'm honestly really surprised they didn't give Quantum Break any stage time, I think that was a mistake. But overall they had a good conference, even if my tastes didn't align with the majority of what they showed.
On Platinum's game...I'm iffy. Thematically it's been done to death, but when he was riding that dragon and charging in it reminded me of the Panzer Dragoon games. Hopefully it's more about you and your dragon and that sort of thing, like Lair but done right, and not a 3rd-person on-foot melee action like thing.
Also hopefully there's more to it thematically then the fantasy stuff.
Geoff: Hey Phil, why should gamers buy your system and not PS4?
Phil: We've got drivatars and cloud-computing in this 2016 game Crackdown and we're an amazing dev platform. Oh and thanks launch buyers for paying the extra $100 for that useless Kinect camera.
GAF is on! Oo I guess that's due to the lack of megatons... It was a good show, don't get me wrong, but there were literally zero surprises for me. Ntkrnl was dead on. Even worse, they apparently demoed everything on High-End-PCs, just like last year. I rather have CG trailers, and there were many, than gameplay that's not possible on Xbox One showed off at the Xbox One show. :/
Are you serious? It being 1st party makes a big difference. They should try investing into their own studios or even acquiring some studios rather than throw money around and hope someone decent bites.
Titanfall was not first party and look at how that went... It's more than likely going multiplat with the next iteration.
I seriously hope this trend of CG trailers dies. I had hoped this generation would have been the end of CG trailers thanks to more powerful consoles. Guess we will continue to see them until the end of time.
I hope all the E3's from now are formatted just like this. New Suit/Investor Bullshit slides, just fucking games. Yes, It was disappointing that most games were leaked before hand but you gotta give it to MS for only showing games. That Halo package is gonna be epic, so much damn content for $60 can't wait.
This. Very shocked to see the whining in the thread about the conference. Tons of games only on Xbox one announced and still people cry lol. I'm waiting for tonight to see the same people eat up the cg trailers for ps4. I'll be there letting you know about it. Solid performance MS.
Call me old fashioned but I kind of like the huge announcements. This shows wasn't bad by any means as far as content goes. Lots of stuff but it was shown like one long preview of trailers. It's almost like Nintendo new approach to E3.
One common theme I did like is they kept saying dedicated servers which is a far cry from the old XBox Live.
I'm so tired of HD collections. The number of them these days is a real reflection of how shitty and unimaginative the videogame industry is at this point. Not that the Halo collection will be bad, but to sell a 10 year old game as a highlight of your console is a damn shame. I fear Sony will do the same thing with The Last of Us on PS4.
