Day 0 started off with the Microsoft press conference. I didn't expect much since we now nearing the end of the cycle but somehow I was still disappointed. I bought my 360 back in early 06 to play video games. When they started to add things like netflix and twitter it was cool little extra heck I even use the poorly designed youtube app at times. However I never felt like that was taking away from games being announced or made. This year however we were shown fewer games than I can ever remember and half of those we saw saw or heard about at the show last year. I get it it's not all about the games and they need to show all facets of the company to press in attendance but come on. When half the conference is about Kinnect as a glorified microphone and me connecting my whole house to my xbox because... I don't know then and 5 minutes are spent how to speak Spanish to my xbox, you have lost me. Why would i need IE on my 360 when we have a netflix and youtube app anyways. Anything else would require more typing then its worth and I rather use a computer. Anyways let's get to the games.
|1. Halo 4||6/10||I've already finished the fight. I admit the new enemy's looked cool I guess. Still at the end of the day i wasn't a huge Halo fan and at this point I think I'm Just done with it.|
|2.SC:Blacklist||7/10||Never big on the Splinter cell Series. I sort of liked conviction and this looked like that mixed with Assassins Creed and future solider.|
|3. Fifa 13/ Madden 13||?/10||Not much shown but a scared looking Joe Montana and hey Kinect is the best microphone ever. I love me some sports but look like more of the same.|
|4.Fable Kinnect||0/10||Dbz...oh wait its fable Next!|
|5.Gears of war Judgement||5/10||Hard to get hyped by a trailer plus just like Halo I thought we finished the fight. We will see.|
|6. Forza Horizon||1/10||A Trailer.Still no idea what it is but I I'm still happy with my copy of Forza 3.|
|7.Tomb Raider||8/10||Looks cool. Nervous that the all the QTE will get stale. Also the moaning dear god it sounds like a porno.|
|8.Various arcade game trailers and a kinnect angry birds game.||0/10||Next!|
|9.RE:6||7/10||Looks cool for an action game, but still its been all down hill after 4 for me. I saw another demo from capcom awhile back with Leon and flashlight in the dark so I hope some of that still in the game.|
|10.South Park||9/10||Looks fucking awesome I hope it all turns out well.|
|11. Dance Central 3||0/10||I don't own a Kinect and do they really need 3 versions in 3 years of this game.|
|12 Black ops 2||3/10||I'm done with cod. I love 4 and blops and the rest were ok .|
Overall Grade c-
Next gen hurry up.
