2/10

A lot of shameless bragging about nothing. While it was a decent showing for Microsoft's standards, I am deducting points because I don't like them.

This.

14. Halo MCC??? (wasn't really shown they just mentioned REACH coming out on PC.)



6/10, it was a dissapointment for me, especially after last year's stellar show.

This was Microsoft's shot and they blew it.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Thought it was ok. But too many of the trailers looked CG and no gameplay but alas.



Hmm, pie.

I'd say a 5.
Good pacing for games, but not much I was excited for.
Keanu in Cyberpunk was awesome, but just a cinematic trailer doesn't do it for me. Same for Elden Ring.

I really liked the look of the new Tales game though.

Combat looks very different.

Was a 6/10 for me. MS was clearly saving up announces for next E3, because they knew that Sony skipped E3 to save up announces for next-E3 as well. That resulted in this years conference being pretty mediocre. Highlights for me were Halo, Borderlands, FH4 Lego expansion, Cyberpunk, Tales, Phantasy Star, and Scarlett reveal.

Not really much that they could have done. Their next console is still more than one year away, so it's understandable that they didn't want to show their hand yet. At the same time though, one has to ask why they bothered to talk about it when they had no intention to go beyond PR fluff.

Sony may be absent from E3, but their marketing contracts with third parties are still active, so it's not like Microsoft could have boasted with footage of more AAA multiplatform games at their show.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

6/10 We need some new games and gameplay.... we got no gameplay for Gears 5 & Halo Infinite.

Got no big annoucement. No hype.

But some are only an expansion or a DLC like State of Decay 2, Forza Horizon, and Minecraft. Also some of those games are indie games like Gears Pop and Ori. Overall, they have not shown much any new AAA exclusive titles (we already new about Gears and Halo). Not only that, they have not shown any game play for big titles including Cyberpunk, Halo, gears, etc... only CGI type of trailers..



Good in general, 7-8. I wanted to know more about new console, specially since all the hype for the Google Stadia (wich i dont really liked that much). Also, i didnt like how they present the Gears 5 segment. The best of the conference i think, Ori, Cyberpunk, PSO, Psychonauts, Tales of and Halo and the way the gamepass is going with big library.
