The stream is extremely not working. Bummer! I was hoping to catch up on this before the Bethesda conference.

Edit: Nevermind it just gets stuck buffering endlessly at 3 seconds, but is totally fine if you skip to 4. Weird!

Edit 2: Ben looks handsome with a soft stubble!

Charm edit: Audio falls out of sync a couple of minutes in.

I don't know what else to say other than that was one helluva dull and limp press conference... outside of Keanu/Suave Ben.

Some exciting announcements, especially Double Fine, but with hardly any direct feed gameplay this conference was kind of dull. There can only be so many CGI/trailers to make up a conference before attention wanes.

I felt like I was waiting for a big announcement that never came. Such a disappointing ending to an otherwise solid press conference.

That Keanu bit was something special, that has to be hall of fame E3 moments.

Whenever I maximize the videos on my iPad, it becomes real hard to scrub to different places in the video. Is there a fix to this?

Somebody found out that the lines of code in Master Chief's helmet UI on start-up were XBL store codes. A bunch of people got Game Pass Ultimate months from entering them.

I’m watching the archive of this stream, and the audio is cutting out quite frequently. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Edit: Not experiencing this when I watch the archive via YouTube.

Looking forward to Cyberpunk & the Blair Witch game. Star Wars & Ori looked cool too. And i do like that they're making a new flight sim. Would've liked to hear them talk more about Xcloud & Scarlett.

So... If Microsoft flight simulator is powered by satellite data are they saying you can fly anywhere on Earth? Those graphics were so good and I love the idea of a game being so large you could literally circumnavigate the entire planet Earth.

Dunno about anyone else but this was near unwatchable live streaming on Chromecast at the time. Had to stop watching and wait for the VOD. Huge bummer.

Oh man. Digital Keanu reveal followed up by Real Keanu reveal has to rank up there in all-time E3 moments.

That Keanu reveal might be my favorite E3 moment ever, made even better by experiencing it live with the GB crew.

Keanu hype!

Also I paid my buck to get in on the PC game pass and it seems pretty great what they have so far.

State of Decay 2 is broken on PC for me now and the new DLC won't even install through the Microsoft store- Luckily, I only paid 1$ to find that out and didn't decide to pay full price for the game today!

A lot of really great looking games at this thing. Halo and Gears were possibly the least interesting offerings, but still looked good. Cyberpunk, 12 Minutes, that fuckin' Deer game, that Boat town game, etc. all looked rad to name a few.

The crew's reaction to Keanu Reeves sudden appearance was great.

MS' conference was decent to good but would have been better if they showed off more gameplay trailers instead of going too heavy with CGI trailers.

He says "The combination between the SoC and the Solid State Drive are ..." The SoC stands for System on a Chip. Since AMD is manufacturing the CPU and GPU for the new Xbox, they're integrated together on one chip (so effectively he's referring to the CPU, and GPU simultaneously).

Well Keanu was great and the deer game looks cool... Trotting out Halo and Gears is always going to make me yearn for new IP. Outer Worlds looks promising.

Hmm...

Hope those wrestlers managed to escape.

I'm mixed on splitting game pass into "for console" and "for pc". Seems like that sort of sucks for anyone who has the normal game pass currently, who might have expected the pc component of that to get better. At least there's "ultimate" for that. Meanwhile for pc-only players the reduced price is definitely a win.

Re using your own console as an xcloud server...I don't understand *why* that one would want to use their own upload bandwidth rather than Microsoft's....it sort of seems to defeat the whole point of a "cloud" with worldwide datacenters. Anybody understand what they're going for there?

Enjoyable first event to watch. Can't wait to see more of E3, and will finish watching Bethesda's conference!

Though kind of hard to hear showcases when the GB West team won't shoosh a little more during the dialog of the presenters and in the trailers, including throughout Keanu's sick entrance/speech. Either way, looking forward to the rest.

Lots of 2020 and lots of CG trailers. This show had a weird flow, surprising as MS usually have the slickest conferences.

I didn't know a Halo at E3 video could get such a luke warm reaction but when you have a shitty character get rescued by Borat in space what else do you expect fans to think about your dying game, and also what the fuck was going on with the stage were they hot boxing the whole audience?

Oh well at least we got Sony's presser that will be a real shot in the arm I can't wait to see more The Last of Us 2 it is about time we get some more of that game.

I thought the lack of streaming news was due to them currently being in talks with Sony over it.

"This looks like a game Devolver would pass on" is both low key really brutal but also a completely accurate description of that Battletoads game.
