Maybe I just have low expectations... But I mean Banjo Theeie, new IP, and exclusive Japanese game.
Coupled with everything we know like a Tomb Raider, Halo 5, Forza 6, Quantum Break, Scalebound, Gears Anniversary, and then Gears 4 teaser.

What all do you think would make a good conference?

Well, personally I have no interest in Battletoads, Banjo 3, or Gears Remaster, so the Japanese exclusive and the new IP (Rare's new IP I presume since it's already confirmed for E3) would be the only things that might interest me. I need more than just 2 new announcements that I might like, unless said Japanese exclusive was something I really want, like Shenmue 3.

As far as new announcements go I'm honestly expecting Microsoft to dissapoint me. There's just so little time this year for new announcements thanks to the Windows 10 and HoloLens stuff, combined with the fact that they have alot of already announced games to show gameplay for, I don't see how they're going to have enough time to announce much else besides the stuff that has already leaked or has been heavily rumored. Obviously I hope that MS comes through with some big unexpected surprise that I'll like, but I'm not holding my breath. At least the already announced stuff should be good, I'm looking forward to the possible/likely Halo 5, RotTR, Forza 6, Scalebound, and Crackdown gameplay demos at least.

I thought you were a good person :(

I share your point of view with some differences. I don't really care for crackdown or tomb raider, but I want to see gears. 

Besides this, about the same. Win10 + Holo**** wil be rage worthy during the conference I'm 100% sure. I'm guessing rare new ip as well, lionhead + press play games will probably be at Gamescom.. 

The nfl game will be there to add.. 

Really not that special, even taking in account leaks, last year leaks were better quality(PD, Scale, horizon 2, mcc..).

Hey, you can't help the games you like and don't like, lol xD I tried to get into Gears 1 for like 6 hours, between the bleak art style and the fact that the multiplayer was just a bunch of people rolling around on the ground firing shotguns, I just couldn't get into it. As for Banjo, all of the gameplay I've seen of the originals, as well as the new spiritual successor Yooka-Laylee, frankly bored me.



I just need some 3D platforming game!

I actually really don't care for Battletoads though, would rather get Viva and Banjo!

I'm willing to give Gears a second chance, but the look turns me off. :/

I don't really care for 3D platformers personally. What I want most from Microsoft's E3 conference is an RPG exclusive, don't care if it's a JRPG or a WRPG at this point.

I agree about Gear's artstyle, Fallout has had the same problem in the past, but at least Fallout's gameplay is fun

E3 sounds freaking amazing to me, I love Halo, Gears, Forza, and Crackdown. I'm intrigued by Quantum Break and Scalebound. I enjoyed Battletoads as a kid, not much interest in Banjo. I'm starting to like MOBAS like Fable and Gigantic. I'm a really big football fan, I hope Joe Montana has NFL rosters. I have zero interest in any type of JRPG, I have never understood how people could play games where all you do is push one button, then wait and push another button (I don't know if that's how they still are, I'm basing my opinion off final fantasy type of games). Overall the only way MSFT can disappoint me is spending too much time on Hololense and PC.

That prediction doesn't seem that great.

I wouldn't be happy with that show.

Yeah, I have to agree here. Only 5 new announcements, 2 of which were heavily rumored beforehand (Battletoads and Banjo) with a 3rd that leaked beforehand (Gears remaser), so just 2 surprises. That's not enough for me.

You guys are setting yourselves up for disappointment.

Five new announcements would be a pretty huge showing historically (excluding indie montages).

Forza name shouldn't be used for games outside the Motorsport series.

While I know horizon is nothing alike, using "Forza" still saturates the name. It should be just horizon, it sounds good and all.

More like going into it knowing it will be disappointing.

Fair enough, you don't like what you don't like I guess!
