E3 2013: Microsoft
So… I just watched Microsoft’s E3 conference, well I wasn’t expecting much. And sadly there was nothing for me there, I think I was most smitten with Project Spark, it looked like a lot of fun. Other than that, I thought it was pretty meh. I was interested in Quantum Break, but it ended so soon and didn’t show much more than a little CG-trailer.
They announced a new revision of the Xbox 360, with a look that is very similar to that of Xbox One. I don’t know if that is very smart, might get a few parents confused. But let’s hope it good and as quite as they said it would be, if they are cheap I might pick one up in the future. There are still some X360 games I would like to play.
Other than that, I didn’t think they had any good surprises. It was mostly FPS or stuff that I have no particular interest in, sure the games where pretty and a few of them looked really nice. But they are just not for me. The Witcher 3 looked great as hell, but I have not played the other two games. Hope to fix that some day, since they look like really great games and I’ve only heard good stuff about them.
Oh, yeah right. Dead Rising 3 looked pretty okay, I’m not sure what to think about it yet. It seemed to be much more serious than it’s predecessors, which I’m not sure if I like. Of course it could just be that specific part in the video that was show, that are like that. But naaa, it didn’t really get me. Maybe I am tired of zombies?
So yeah, I’m not cheering for Xbox One, anytime soon but I just loved the new Metal Gear Solid V: Phantom Pain trailer, my god! I haven’t been this interested in a MGS game since MGS3. So I am definitely looking forward to that.
