Edit: Plus, Killer Instinct Season 2 addons.

I thought the full version of Evolve was coming out in October, not just the beta?

Possibly. I didn't see confirmation in my quick look.

Call me crazy, but I think I preferred when the conferences were more than just one trailer after another. Especially when half of the games are third party.

I'm still ticked that their entire show was leaked back in January, some of those could have been bombshells, but 5 months of knowing makes them underwhelming...

Same goes for Sony having Project Beast leak, but that one at least was a true leak, and not a manufactured one to generate hype...

I really thought Team Xbox hit a home run. Or they certainly did in my book. I am very impressed with Phil Spencer. And his focus & direction for Xbox. I really like their game lineup for 2015. I love the plan to launch a movie series to launch Halo 5 (I told ya so in the old thread!). And the added sauce will be all of the indies. and retro remakes. Some of them looked really good to me. If they price them right...it will be a bonanza. And if they pull off BC in 2015-2016...They'll sell new consoles to at least 75% of the late adopters IMO. Heck...those 100 plus Halo Maps may be incentive enough for most. Especially if they put all of the "Forge" campaigns in there too. Overall, I think it was a very impressive presentation by MS. Because it was done 100% for the gamer audience. BRAVO! I am for the first time starting to get that feeling that I have to get an Xbox One. And I will this holiday season. Way to much great stuff coming out to miss their show.

Looks like I'm officially going on Craigslist watch mode for an Xbox One. Looking forward to their lineup this year and the Halo Collection. I just may end up owning all three systems this generation.

I won't be able to watch it until I get home tonight.

I was just thinking... it's a little weird, but Fable Legends without Peter Molyneux involved has me more interested in a Fable game than I've been since the original (which to me was a terrible disappointment).

He took heat by fans because that is not what Phil Spencer has said and games should be about 100% what should be talked about.

Michael Pachter once again right on the money. biggrin.gif

I sure hope they bring back "Jack of Blades". He was a great villain. Sort of like Ganon in the Legend of Zelda. I was always disappointed and intrigued how they just junked such a richly developed evil character. I missed him in Fable sequels.

Not much that interest me, but at least there's a little bit that does now like the new Forza 5 track. Glad I never bought any of the 360 Halo's.

bd2003's PC stuff didn't happen, correct? Saw no such news as I quickly scanned things over.

Nope, not a peep about it. Just games, games and more games.

Because the xbox brand encompasses the PC?

I played a drinking game where I took a drink each time they mentioned Kinect.

When it was over I was still sober enough to legally drive a School Bus.

Ya, I thought it was kind of a bizarre conference for a platform holder. They barely even acknowledged the existence of their platforms, it felt more like a third party conference. I was expecting a lot of games for sure, but not to the total exclusion of everything else.

Public service announcement...

For anyone watching the "official" Xbox live events HD feed (app) trying to catch up on Today's events....

Do yourself a favor and skip ahead 30 minutes to get past the green carpet show... you won't miss anything.

Yeah, they will never remaster past Forza releases.

If they were to ever touch such a project, I'd much rather see the 1st party Project Gotham Racing, RalliSport Challenge, and Midtown Madness franchises be collected and remastered. But for anything even slightly towards the sim end of things, the vast majority would rather just buy the latest iteration with all the bells and whistles.

But arcade racers, especially in franchises that are now ignored, I think that there would be some demand there. I'd especially love to see RSC2 and PGR2 receive HD remasterings. Too bad that they never would do such a thing though.

Rally Sport Challenge... Good call! Hill climb and later figure 8 racing!

I almost lost hope for that genre... right up there with Sega Rally as an all time great and one of the greatest evolutions in gaming ever.
