Btw that link has some Nintendo E3 direct leaks so be aware of that.

Idk how reliable he is or if he's taking stuff from elsewhere but a lot of that turned out to be true, seems like Microsoft is just saving it's big guns for E3 2020, can't really blame them but I still wish they had saved at least one for this E3, along with having a proper Gears 5 gameplay showing.

I won’t get excited until I actually see who is developing it first. MS can’t hold back on Perfect Dark at all it has the potential to be a pillar game next gen if they reboot it right, we don’t want another Crackdown 3 scenario.

Phew at least the gameplay looks good and smooth. That mode itself seems quite boring tbh. Kryll is back which is nice. Melee with knife makes sense but I just hope they'll balance it properly for versus so it won't be lame two-piecing again. Interesting to see how those flashbangs play out in versus. 



Overall I'd rate the presentation 6/10 which might seem a bit harsh considering I'm very positive about the future of Xbox and especially game pass. 

Positives: 

+ It was all about the games and we did see plenty of interesting games. Outer Worlds, Ori, Blair Witch and 12 minutes caught my attention.

+ Lego Forza Horizon was cool and I'll pick it up asap.

+ Microsoft Flight Simulator looked stunning and glad it's on Xbox too.

+ Halo Infinite trailer was awesome.

+ Minecraft Dungeons is something I'm going to play with my son.

+ Tim Schafer & Double Fine

+ Keanu

Negatives:

- Gears presentation... *sigh*

- Not any gameplay stuff. These trailers most looked the same. By the time of Borderlands I was bored to death. At least Halo ended on a high note.

- Too much Japanese crap but I suppose there's an audience for these.

- No Fable or any new exciting exclusive game for that matter.

- Bleeding Edge looked meh. 

- I suffered a post traumatic stress disorder looking at that Battletoads racing stuff.

- No Sea of Thieves.

- That Gears presentation again.

Oh and one more thing..

I just renewed my 12-month live sub & 6 month game pass sub in May. Last night I upgraded to ultimate for 1€ and apparently it adds both live and game pass sub together because now I have the ultimate sub until 12/31/2020. 

So it's basically 6 months of live and 1 year of game pass for 1€ :P

That's great news, I've been wanting a new Perfect Dark for ages. 



I was wondering why people were getting hyped for this conference. Being a inbetween console year, I really did not expect them to show their hand to much if at all. You can believe Sony taking off this year is because they will have all their guns ready next year to showcase the PS5 and MS needs to be ready to battle just as hard. A showing of Fable and Perfect Dark sounds like a good start. Gameplay of Halo Infinite might even be better and if they have any hidden guns ready to show who knows.

I'm quite interested in giving Bleeding Edge a shot and been all melee definitely caught my interest and I'm reading some good comments about how the game played.

Well, it was Microsoft (including guys like Spencer) and insiders hyping it up.

If they wouldn't act as if people will see stuff people won't believe then people wouldn't expect that much.

But with all this talk before E3 you just had to believe to see awesome Gears story scenes, some big surprises (nothing was really big) and so on...

Without all of this I guess most wouldn't have expected anything special

I was pretty hyped for the show and it met my expectations. Yeah the Gears showing was weird and there was a lack of gameplay but most of their games are coming soon anyway and they had lots of cool gamepass announcements.
