Join us at 9:30 AM PDT for liveblogging direct from the event as Gaming Trend’s editorial staff gives you the play by play from Microsoft’s X-Box: Game On E3 2014 Media brief.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201411:04 am

Ok folks, thanks for joining us! Ron will be posting a more in-depth write-up soon- please continue the conversation in our forums!

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201411:03 am

I am glad to see that they had a few exclusives and a couple of new IPs. Bringing back Phantom Dust is a shocker though. Hopefully it sells more this time around.

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 201411:02 am

People wanted games, they supplied games. Some great shots, proper focus, and they clearly learned a bit from the previous E3.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201411:02 am

This is something they needed to do, and I feel like they delivered. So far. This seems great but if the actual products backslide or be delayed for months or come out as something other than advertised… we will be worse than when this started.

Jay Malone June 9, 201411:00 am

Love that they did not do anything with Gears.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201411:00 am

Phantom Dust was the biggest surprise (and draw) for me

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:59 am

If we’re calling games…. I will duel anyone for Dragon Age…

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 201410:59 am

Real solid showing by Microsoft I think. Nothing I found breakout amazing, but ‘games’ was the demand and they delivered there.

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:58 am

We showed you video games, guys! Please buy our console.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:58 am

Crackdown – I’ll arm-wrestle ANY GT staff to review that one…

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 201410:58 am

The return of Crackdown. It’s been a while.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:57 am

That’s a lot of serve…. not so much protect.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:55 am

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:55 am

HELL YEA CRACKDOWN

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:54 am

Now I get it. Scale. New scale. Dragons.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:54 am

Platinum’s new game- Scalebound

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:54 am

Dragon May Cry.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:53 am

DMC?

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:52 am

Lex Tyler Lex Tyler June 9, 201410:52 am

Between the XP pop-ups and the VO about aggro and other MMO terms, this is not looking like the game I thought it was.

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:52 am

With you Mike.

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 201410:52 am

I assumed the chatter was a simulation of player co-op, not in-game.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:51 am

I was just about to say that Spencer.

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:51 am

Spencer: I was thinking the same thing. I was wondering if that was people actually communicating.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:51 am

Yeah, this looks uninspired to me, sorry guys

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:51 am

Chatter from allies that seems genuine instead of annoying? Now that’s something to get excited about!

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:50 am

Visually, The Division is stunning. The only question seems to be in regards to the gameplay holding up.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:49 am

Lighting and fog?

Hello, next-gen. Nice to finally meet you.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:48 am

Notice the papers floating around?

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:48 am

Love the context the map system offers.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:47 am

A lot of gameplay this conference. I’m not complaining!

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:47 am

No Rainbow Six?
How about some Rainbox Six…

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:47 am

I’m sorry, but this is pretty much what they needed to do. Kinect can exist, but it isn’t driving the console. More, more, more.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:47 am

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:47 am

The Division is ALSO still happening.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:46 am

IN. IN. IN.

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:45 am

I like the colors blue and purple.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:45 am

O man, I LOVED Phantom Dust!

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:45 am

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:45 am

YES!!!!

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:44 am

Phantom Dust???

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:44 am

Are they actually showing him the right cameras? Seemed a bit confused…

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:44 am

New Reboot.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:44 am

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:43 am

I LOVE E3

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:43 am

Goodbye to your shoelaces.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:43 am

I’m glad they took the extra time on it.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:43 am

Date? No…

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:42 am

Like that blade ain’t tainting your soul.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:42 am

Context sensitive reactions from enemies? Awesome!

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 201410:41 am

Gorgeous environment in Witcher 3.

Lex Tyler Lex Tyler June 9, 201410:41 am

Good to see that Witcher 3 is going to be a refinement of 2 rather than another paradigm shift for CD Projekt Red.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:40 am

Nuanced sword combat mixed with hack and slash. I like it!

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:40 am

Combat looks to be very “Lords of Shadow”. Not a bad thing.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:40 am

Music sounds great too.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:40 am

Go anywhere in the game you can see?

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:39 am

Witcher 3: Monster Hunter ULTRA.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:39 am

Feral Big Bird.

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:38 am

Watch me play Witcher 3, dammit!

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:38 am

Witcher 3

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:38 am

Looks great from the game considered a “failure”. I was a big fan of the new TR.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:38 am

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:38 am

Now they are showing Witcher 3.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:38 am

Witcher playable? NICE.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:38 am

Rise of the Planet of the Tomb Raiders.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:37 am

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:37 am

Looks like a Tomb Raider sequel

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:37 am

There’s the pic.

Lex Tyler Lex Tyler June 9, 201410:37 am

Tomb Raider 2

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:36 am

*leans forward* Laura?

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:36 am

Tomb Raider?

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:36 am

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 201410:36 am

Mostly a showcase, but that still came off as a good answer to the people wanting more indie representation.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:35 am

Too many quirky logotypes to catch ‘em all

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:35 am

I think Below is going to come out AFTER Inside…

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:35 am

They’re putting Threes on Xbox? I don’t know how that will work.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:35 am

Threes!

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:34 am

Aztez, Knight Squad, White Knight, Plague Inc, Earthlock, Cuphead,Hyperlight Drifter, Slash Dash, FRU, Lovers in a Dangerous SPacetime…

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:34 am

Very VERY true Justin.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:33 am

ID@XBOX the new indie dev outreach from Microsoft. Bring it.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:33 am

Indie games – swing hard, MS. You need to.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:33 am

Ah…. is my wish coming true?

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:33 am

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:32 am

Inside. Wonderful.

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 201410:32 am

Really unique feel on this one. And yeah, Out of this World is what I was thinking too.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:32 am

Inside

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:32 am

Out of this World if it was made today. Fantastic look.

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:32 am

Hell yea whatever this is!

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:31 am

This looks monstrously amazing.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:31 am

Holy crap that looks good!

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:31 am

New game from the makers of Limbo

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:31 am

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:31 am

Now they are showing games for 2015 and beyond. No more releases for this year.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:30 am

Agreed Mike.

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 201410:30 am

Even Phil Spencer gets a sequel today!

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:30 am

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:29 am

That was the barest of teasers for Guardians

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:29 am

New game modes and features are included.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:28 am

Halo 5 Guardians Beta in December

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:28 am

Halo Nightfall series included

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:27 am

Quit yelling at me, sir.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:27 am

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:26 am

LOL How do you re-create H2’s multi without ruining it? You don’t re-create Halo 2 multi..

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:26 am

Quit looking at the vistas – you’ll do better.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:26 am

Ascension might be one of the best FPS levels ever made.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:25 am

Halo 2 Multiplayer

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:25 am

Halo 2 gets full anniversary treatment

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:25 am

Custom playlists in MC’s timeline.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:24 am

Halos 1-4 for Xbox One

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:23 am

Halo 4 too!

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:23 am

Could this be Halo: Timeline?

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:23 am

Nov 11th 2014- Halo The Master Chief Collection

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:23 am

It’s about running out of ideas.

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:22 am

Spoiler alert!

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:22 am

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:22 am

Oh… or Guardians….

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:22 am

… and 3 I think.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:21 am

Halo 2 HD

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:20 am

And now what we’ve all been expecting. The Halo choir.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:20 am

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:20 am

Is Conker in the new Halo? *fingers crossed*

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:20 am

Halo Theme still gives me goosebumps.

Not always good tho

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:20 am

There it is…

Lex Tyler Lex Tyler June 9, 201410:20 am

I want to have feels for Ori, but did they actually, um, show anything there?

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:20 am

Ori looked old school and great.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:19 am

Ori Blind Forest … looks like my kind of game.

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:19 am

Let me show you my emotions.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:19 am

Ori and the Blind Forest

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:19 am

Moon Studios with the first actual new game of the day?

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:18 am

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 201410:18 am

Great for someone to practice their mapmaking and layout concepts in.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:17 am

Finally a reason to draw people in.

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:17 am

What the hell are you doing Conker?

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:17 am

Project Spark looks like it could be a development tool to find fledgling developers.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:17 am

Lex Tyler Lex Tyler June 9, 201410:17 am

CONKER

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:17 am

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:16 am

Project Spark — It’s a thing that is still happening.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:16 am

Whoa wait what is this?

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:15 am

Check out these comedians. They are video games.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:14 am

Neckbeard?

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:14 am

All the commentary in-game doesn’t deliver a punch.

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 201410:14 am

Man, I like the general concept, but I sure hope we can shut off the chatter in this one.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:13 am

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:13 am

Sort of a reverse of the early 2000’s Savage.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:13 am

The villain role looks fun, but I don’t see much teamwork happening.

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:13 am

The challenge in Villian mode will be navigating the controller.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:13 am

Alright….. THAT is a very good idea.
I am not half as underwhelmed as I expected…. But these are still E3 shots and demos…

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:12 am

Hackneyed fantasy action/RPG with a new twist- you can be the dungeon master. Snore.

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 201410:12 am

Alright, villain mode is promising. I’ve been waiting for this kind of action for a while.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:12 am

Dungeon Keeper comes home to roost.

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:12 am

You can turn the game into tower-defense in the Villain mode.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:12 am

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:11 am

Sho-Ryu-Ken with a sword?

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:11 am

No HUD and no map. Some stuff I hated about Fable 3.

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 201410:11 am

A little too thick on the witty banter.

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:11 am

When do they kick a chicken or poop on someone?

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:10 am

Yeah, but show us the villain mode!

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:10 am

I’ve heard too many Scottish accents today already

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:10 am

PM is too busy building Godus and promising … the world?

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:10 am

Yeah.. not the same without Peter M.

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:09 am

Multiplayer beta for Fable Legends is coming.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:09 am

Bringing back the half-cape.

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:09 am

Fable is still happening? Does anyone care?

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:09 am

Where’s my favorite Molyneux?

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:09 am

Lucious: Doubtful it could get to the other consoles. I doubt move can handle what Kinect does.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:09 am

Fable Legends … let’s hope it lives up to the name.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:09 am

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:09 am

Lionhead up now

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:08 am

Like.. exclusive forever, or exclusive at launch?

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:08 am

Digital Only.

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:08 am

I want a new Rock Band so bad. So. Bad.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:08 am

His delivery is sad.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:08 am

Oh wait, Dance Central Spotlight…

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:07 am

Alex from Harmonix on stage for Disney Fantasia

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 201410:07 am

Nice to see Dead Rising getting a bigger sense of humor. Awesome.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:07 am

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:07 am

“Available now” is the big surprise this conference.

Lex Tyler Lex Tyler June 9, 201410:07 am

Speechless.

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:07 am

Hell of a Dead Rising reveal. Fantastic.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:07 am

FINALLY!!! DLC worth owning.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:07 am

This is Saint’s Row inspired at least…. That’s not a bad thing in any way, but still…

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:07 am

Great, that name is going to break our database

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:07 am

Dead Rising vs Capcom?

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:06 am

Available October 28th.

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:06 am

8-player co-op called Chaos Mode.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:06 am

Hopefully multiplayer is more than just a horde mode.

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:05 am

Is he talking to me?

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:05 am

Lucious, that’s you in purple.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:05 am

Dear Microsoft….
Next time you launch a system lead off with something like this…

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:05 am

Victor: Yeah, a game that uses more colors than brown, grey, and black? That could never happen in a shooter.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:04 am

I think this game was ripped from a fever dream I had last time I got the flu.

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:04 am

@Mike: More like Aggressive Inline.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:04 am

This has all the gameplay of infamous or Crackdown, with the humour of the Bard’s Tale.
IN.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:04 am

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:04 am

Does anyone see a little Ratchet and Klank in Sunset Overdrive?

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 201410:03 am

Real nice contrast to everything else so far. Colorful, fun. Not so grimdark.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:03 am

mixed with Tony Hawk?

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:03 am

Sunset Overdrive: The only reason to own an Xbox One?

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:03 am

Kind of a Dead Rising feel?

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:02 am

So…. Saint’s Row with a slightly different plot

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:02 am

I want him to trail off talking about Spyro.

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:02 am

YOU

Lex Tyler Lex Tyler June 9, 201410:02 am

“Of course you can, it’s a f***ing video game!” Sunset Overdrive’s self awareness is a major breath of fresh air after the last half hour.

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 201410:02 am

Best trailer of the show so far I think. Got actual laughs.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:02 am

me?!

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:02 am

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:02 am

Dude’s using a Windows Phone. Also, there is no fourth wall.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 201410:01 am

Wow… THIS looks truley inspired.

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:01 am

Windows phones survive the Apocalypse.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:01 am

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 201410:01 am

They’ve been pushing the advertising hard on this.

Keith Schleicher June 9, 201410:01 am

OK, I was skeptical of Sunset Overdrive when I heard it before. It looks like what Overstrike could have been before it turned into FUSE.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 201410:00 am

That’s how you do a surprise.

Jay Malone June 9, 201410:00 am

Sunset Overdrive looks incredible.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 201410:00 am

Lex Tyler Lex Tyler June 9, 201410:00 am

Well done, Insomniac.

Lex Tyler Lex Tyler June 9, 20149:59 am

Ooo another military shooter!

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:59 am

October 7, Dragon Age.

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 20149:59 am

Getting kind of a Dragon’s Dogma vibe off this one.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:58 am

Dragon Age, continuing the ‘DLC first on Xbox’ trend of the first act of this brief

Spencer Campbell June 9, 20149:58 am

Look at dat water.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:58 am

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:57 am

Note: premier content first on Xbox was posted.

Keith Schleicher June 9, 20149:57 am

YES! The TI-99 4/A. I still have mine.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 20149:57 am

Oh yes. DA… yes yes yes….

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:57 am

Hmnnn, a montage of interviews with various debs. Definitely keeping the focus

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 20149:57 am

LOL
Wow… that’s how you kill an pompus ass..

Keith Schleicher June 9, 20149:56 am

Swordplay should be interesting, see if it can handle the lag.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:56 am

I’ll get the beer.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:56 am

Four player coop? That’s a double-bunkbed Animus!

Spencer Campbell June 9, 20149:56 am

I want this game, 3 friends, and a beer right now.

Jay Malone June 9, 20149:55 am

Well that sure is a lot of murder.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 20149:55 am

I just wanna play an Assassin’s Creed with more assassinations.

Keith Schleicher June 9, 20149:55 am

Assassin’s Rainbow Six?

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 20149:55 am

That’s some pretty impressive co-op action. Keeping the smooth feel of the kills.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:54 am

That home definitely has an assassin infestation.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 20149:54 am

The stealth approach. As loud as possible.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 20149:54 am

French Revo IS a great setting though. Surprised they hadn’t done it yet.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:53 am

So are coop players sharing memories in the Animus?

Keith Schleicher June 9, 20149:53 am

Nice way to time the attacks.

Jay Malone June 9, 20149:53 am

Co-op comin’, folks

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:53 am

Viva la Revolucion! The falling and dropping works so much better.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 20149:53 am

That’s a big crowd and it seems to run pretty smoothly.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:52 am

I just don’t think Assassin’s Creed should be a yearly franchise. It’s so hit or miss.

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 20149:52 am

Stab a whole new era of soldiers in the neck!

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 20149:52 am

Co op campeign… that would be nice.

Keith Schleicher June 9, 20149:52 am

Creating your own brotherhood sounds cool.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 20149:51 am

Co op campaign?

Keith Schleicher June 9, 20149:51 am

Ubisoft announces Assassin’s Creed Unity.

Jay Malone June 9, 20149:51 am

Sequels, you guys. They’re happening.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:51 am

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 20149:50 am

Class-based FPS? Crazy sci-fi environment? OH BE THE MONSTER YES.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:50 am

Keith Schleicher June 9, 20149:50 am

Now we have a preview of Evolve, with Xbox One getting DLC first.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 20149:50 am

Now this is something to get excited about!!

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:50 am

Onto Evolve – Left 4 Dead meets Citizen Kabuto.

Keith Schleicher June 9, 20149:49 am

1000 member clubs should give Forza Horizon 2 a ton of members. Coming out in September.

Jay Malone June 9, 20149:49 am

Evolve! Now you have my attention.

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 20149:49 am

Donuts on your lawn o/~

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:49 am

Thank god they’ve left Colorado … too many driver simulations trying to capture pot-head drivers.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:49 am

Just once I’d like a car game set to the song ‘Bitchin’ Camaro’

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 20149:49 am

C’mon, show some epic car crashes!

Keith Schleicher June 9, 20149:48 am

Who wants to drive these cars out in the rain though? Most rational human beings would have them in the garage.

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 20149:48 am

I’m not a car guy, so so far the only thing to stand out to me is dynamic weather and dedicated servers.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:48 am

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:47 am

“Socially connected”

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:47 am

Forza Horizons 2- no lobbies, no waiting. Clubs.

Jay Malone June 9, 20149:47 am

Clap for 1080p. CLAP MINIONS.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 20149:47 am

Is 200 cars really their summit though?

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:46 am

I’m looking forward to Horizon 2 – I hope they manage to get the balance right.

Keith Schleicher June 9, 20149:46 am

Can’t wait to see you out there with your measuring tape Spencer.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 20149:46 am

OH! Complete with graffiti…. nice. I wonder if they’ll include the spray painted dongs that’s on that track IRL.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:45 am

Nurburgring .. finally.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 20149:45 am

Millimeter accuracy? I’ll be the one fact checking that.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:45 am

Provided? Funny thing is, this content should have been in here day and date with release.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:45 am

Give me Forza Mario Kart 8- I want hover cars

Keith Schleicher June 9, 20149:44 am

I can’t wait until next year’s version of Call of Duty: Steampunk.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:44 am

Dan’s got hair!

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:44 am

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 20149:43 am

Alright… I’m not exactly up to date with the CoD:Advance Warfare narrative… but are we just abandoning all pretenses and going alien invasion?

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:43 am

This is definitely a COD game. There is the shellshock moment. Fill out your bingo cards.

Keith Schleicher June 9, 20149:43 am

Anyone ever hear of a pry bar?

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:43 am

Spencer Campbell June 9, 20149:42 am

This is the future. We’re still shoving our arms in holes?

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:42 am

Needless sacrifice… perhaps using those jump boots?

Keith Schleicher June 9, 20149:42 am

It’s a trap!

Jay Malone June 9, 20149:42 am

I want to get excited but then there’s the part where this is Call of Duty.

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 20149:41 am

For a predictable start, this is still shaping up to be a solid opening. Liking what we’re seeing here with the detail and the gameplay.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 20149:41 am

I can’t even imagine how this’ll control.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:41 am

Any questions on this being 1080p?
Also, yes. Bugs fly at night too.

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 20149:41 am

I’m looking forward to mario jumping shotgun-to-the-face action.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 20149:41 am

Alright…. that grenade was pretty cool.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 20149:41 am

Honestly impressed by the future tech in this demo.

Keith Schleicher June 9, 20149:40 am

Bugs hitting the windshield late at night?

Jay Malone June 9, 20149:40 am

Is that the black fog from Lost?

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 20149:40 am

Drone swarm!

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:40 am

Holy Matrix sentinels, Batman!

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 20149:40 am

Well, it’s nice to have a game with jump jets that isn’t Titanfall. And by that I mean a game with an actual campeign.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:39 am

Super Mario jumping!

Jay Malone June 9, 20149:39 am

Too bad this isn’t Wolfenstein. Things I never expected to say.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:39 am

Frame drops on the game? Looks like COD still has you aiming at all times. Bad form.

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 20149:38 am

It’s not a surprise, but it’s still a solid gameplay demo I think.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:38 am

It’s Halo Fall of Duty

Lex Tyler Lex Tyler June 9, 20149:38 am

Cutaway to a dude onstage “playing” the game live. Everyone take a drink.

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:38 am

Lighting and smoke effects look way better.

Spencer Campbell June 9, 20149:37 am

Interesting that it has no HUD.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:37 am

Keith Schleicher June 9, 20149:36 am

Does that look like some kind of tank with virtual screens inside?

Spencer Campbell June 9, 20149:36 am

What a softball, opening with CoD.

Jay Malone June 9, 20149:36 am

Oh yea Call of Duty. That is exciting.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 20149:36 am

Oh man! CoD! They are really pushing their limits! :/

Keith Schleicher June 9, 20149:35 am

And…they open up with Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 20149:35 am

Is that much of a scoop? First to play the DLC? Did I get that right?

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 20149:35 am

Keith: lol

Keith Schleicher June 9, 20149:34 am

They claim new IP and a more diverse lineup. Let’s see if it is more than just first-person shooters.

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 20149:34 am

Excellent. Just what I wanted to hear. Games, damnit!

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:33 am

hoo boy, that kinect doesn’t show up on the promo image any more…

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 20149:32 am

Indie support would be great. I just want more gaming news in general, less on the ‘multimedia experience!’ line.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:32 am

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 20149:32 am

I would like to hear about more/better indie support, and a stronger digital marketplace. That’s a lot to hope for, I know, but it’s not beyond the scope of reason.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:31 am

Here we go

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:30 am

if it’s quality stuff, might be very compelling

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:30 am

Curious about the exclusive shows they have lined up

Spencer Campbell June 9, 20149:29 am

Microsoft definitely has a lot of ground to make up for.

Lucious Barnes Lucious Barnes June 9, 20149:29 am

They’ve kind of been getting crushed by Sony… to be frank. lol

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 20149:29 am

Yeah, we don’t want the best news out of Microsoft to come several weeks after, in the form of a walking back.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:29 am

I don’t want to hear anything about how I can watch sports via my xbox

Justin Pauls Justin Pauls June 9, 20149:28 am

Let’s hope they learned from last year.

Victor Grunn Victor Grunn June 9, 20149:28 am

Looking forward to some news from Microsoft. I get the impression they’ve been overshadowed lately by Sony.

Mike Dunn Mike Dunn June 9, 20149:26 am

We’re five minutes away from the start of the conference!
