Only somewhat good part of the MS conference was when Trey and Matt came out for the South Park RPG, and immediately mocked the SmartGlass presentation.
Gears of War
Judgement, it's like the other Gears game, but you now play as Baird, yippie.... Also glad they waited till after the conference to show actual game footage. Who wants to see actual game footage at a game event when you can listen to Usher be untalented? Foza Horizon, it's open world Project Gotham Racing and you can challenge other racers by honking your horn like in Midnight Club, you go MS! Halo 4, it's Halo but with a new enemy type, and the enemy of the past games that you defeated, teamed up with to stop the greater enemy, and at the end made peace with are the enemy again that you may eventually team up with to stop the new enemy type, WHAT A TWIST! So to sum it up...
If it wasnt for the ad in the corner saying "2012", I'd swear I was just watching all last years announcements again.
As for EA. Hey Capcom I think EA stole your lost planet (those lost planet monsters sure look cooler after necromorfication), and your idea of ruining horror game tention with co-op.
Going back to MS, since they showed several games, just none was actually first party or exclusive (awww that's kind of sad).
Tomb Raider looked suprisingly interesting. Sure it's basically Uncharted but with more gameplay elements, but looks like it could be potentially more fun to me.
Resident Evil has finally went full linear shooter with overblown set pieces. *yawn*
Splinter Cell Blacklist looks like a better Conviction.
Anyway Ubisoft's has started, and began with a musical performance full of untalented fun......the audience seemed pissed. Then awkward host banter, and now Far Cry 3, YAY!
