E3 began today, and Microsoft didn't have a whole heck of a lot to talk about other then Kinect. As a 360 owner, I can firmly say: bleh. That's not to say that there wasn't anything I was interested in however. Here are some things I found to be worth paying attention to.
HALO 4: I am cautiously optimistic. I'm not generally a huge FPS fan, but I really love the Halo universe, and I do want a continuation of Halo 3's mysterious after-the-credits ending. It's just hard to know how psyched I should be at another Halo game when Bungie isn't at the helm.
HALO 1 HD: Meh. I have played the first Halo so many times that it's hard to get really jazzed up over it, but on the other hand, I'm sure it won't be full price, and all its multiplayer maps will be compatible with Reach.
NEW FABLE: No real details except that it will have Kinect funtionality. But Fable is usually fun, so, yay?
MINECRAFT!?: Pretty surprising announcement. Minecraft is going to be released on the 360. Hard to imagine that it will get all the free updates the PC version gets, though. Sucks to be the dude(s) developing Fortresscraft, a absolutely blatant Minecraft rip-off, for XBox Live Indie Games.
RYSE: Don't know much about it so far other then it's a 1st person action game that uses Kinect. Made by the people that made Crysis, who firmly believe that taking words with the letter i in them and changing it to a y is a wonderful naming scheme.
DANCE CENTRAL 2: I don't have a Kinect, but I've played Dance Central at a friend's house and it's fun... and it's just gonna be more fun with multiplayer. Plus I'm just happy to see Harmonix still in good shape after Rock Band 3's disappointing sales.
I do not own a PS3 so I can't say I'm very interested to see what Sony's got to reveal, but I am very much looking forward to finding out what Nintendo's going to say about their new console. On the non-exclusive front, I'm totally looking forward to hearing whatever new Assassin's Creed-y information there is, and hoping that Telltale will shed some light on The Walking Dead or Kings Quest. I'm also hoping that Square Enix will announce plans to make Final Fantasy worth playing again.
What are you guys interested in?
Edit: Rockstar just announced free DLC for Red Dead Redemption. Woo!
