NOTE: The following is a series of updates posted on my Facebook page. They are based on first impressions of what I watched during the Microsoft conference. If there's something you don't like with what I say, then DON'T COMMENT! However, I encourage proper discussions. Thank you.
*E3 kicks off with the Microsoft Press Conference! Expect frequent updates throughout this week's E3. :)
*Microsoft Press Conference! Here we go!
*That's Modern Warfare 3?! Wow, I think I'm getting some goosebumps from watching this... And I'm not into the MW series at all!
*Just seeing the demo for MW3 reminds me of Medal of Honor: Rising Sun... only better!
*I'm not one for the Tomb Raider series... but wow. This looks intense so far.
*Okay... I think this Tomb Raider may be worth checking out.
*LOL Nice job, Peter Moore, for attempting to say the EA Sports slogan. =P
*Hmm. I don't know if using voice for Mass Effect 3 would be necessary. Just saying.
-Kind of added on during the last minute if you ask me. Still I want to play the games someday. :)
*FUTURE SOLDIER! Do want! XD
*Gunsmith using Kinect in Future Soldier... I don't know. ^^; Looks interesting.
*Tom Clancy games with Kinect enables? Hmm...
*More Kinect stuff. Yay...
*Now that I'm reading the comments on Gamespot, I have to say that I now notice there hasn't been an Xbox exclusive game announced.
*Okay, I take it back. Here comes Gears of War 3!
*Wow. That creature is... HUGE!
*Impressive demo for Gears of War 3. :)
*An ancient Rome Crytek game?
-Ryse... another Kinect game...
*Ah, here we go! Halo remastered!
*Great... I miss out on Halo thanks to a laggy stream... Now Forza 4... *sighs*
*Fable: The Journey... I may skip on this since I was not one for the series. And yet it's Kinect enabled. Meh...
*Minecraft and Kinect? Oh boy...
*This Disneyland Adventures seems cute.
-Now I can imagine how many upset Kingdom Hearts fans are over this. =P
*Okay. Let's see what this Star Wars Kinect is all about.
*Not bad so far with this Star Wars demo. Maybe the gameplay could use some tweaking in how fluid they'll want to be with the player's movements.
(Kind of regret saying that after it settled in...)
*Did that kid do the Thriller dance just now?! XD
*Aww. Well, that's kind of nice of Tim Schafer to do this for his daughter. :)
(Heck, I created a little card game for my sister as a case study.)
*Okay. That's actually much better than having to choose from pre-made options.
*Finger Tracking... I don't know.
-Then again, this Fun Labs doesn't have me sold.
*Hmm. I guess I'll tune out the Kinect stuff for now.
(Which I did! Goodness, what a push for it this year...)
*Oh look! Halo 4! Better get ready for 5 and 6 as well.
*So, the Microsoft conference started off strong but kind of declined with the talk of Kinect. Man, they're really pushing it this time around. Overall, I'd give their conference a solid B.
Yes, I gave them a B, and I am aware I may have been a bit generous with the score. I mean their conference wasn't that bad in my honest opinion. However, it was a bit of a letdown compared to their conference last year. If you ask me, it didn't really get me pumped up in getting a 360 despite the Kinect being an option. Even with Halo 4 announced (which was leaked hours before the conference) doesn't do much for me.
