Right now the chat is erupting over the failure to deliver on the small, reasonable hope of hearing from the people who we had been waiting together for e3 news with, for months, to simply talk about the news. We got something much different. Two Microsoft company men and Jonathan Blow talked at length about irrelevant nonsense and old news for the first 20 minutes. Worse yet, the next 20 turned into a vigorous and unashamed shill defense of the force feeding of Kinect into software. Still no E3 discussion, but LOTS of time to get together and pretend "I heard menus these days are HARD TO USE in games unless you have voice commands guys, seriously, that’s what my boss said.”
If you feel the same way, please post your own insight and complaints. I feel like I’ve waited so long for a series premier and instead got an infomercial. I realize that Jeff was on assignment covering actual games, but there is a ready cast of familiar faces that ARE NOT FOLLOWING A COMPANY LINE, that could have stepped in. Tonight was NOT the night for these weak guests. If they are such industry players and like the bombcast show so much, they'd show up at the Whiskey office on any average Monday to talk about their 2 year old projects.
Day 1 was a failure. Let’s acknowledge it as such.
