Xbox E3 2013 Conference

by INSANEdrive, ಥ_ಥ | f(ಠ‿↼)z | ᕕ( ᐛ )ᕗ| ¯\_(ツ)_/¯, Monday, June 10, 2013, 11:22 (3095 days ago)

Well the Xbox E3 2013 Conference just ended. Thoughts?

Ill throw down what Is pecking away at my noggin for the moment - I kept hearing "Open World".

So I have to wonder if this is ( and I presume it will be ) the Norm for this "generation" and if so how will Destiny stand out from it all? No doubt we will find out more in a few hours - to be continued this line of thought shall be.

Also Titanfall.

Pitty about the Price point though.

Titanfall does look pretty great. I think I'm going to enjoy it. Overall, some neat stuff, cool looking games, interesting price point. Metal Gear: PP looks great, even with it's utterly silly supporting cast.

I've been a big supporter of XBOX since the beginning, but I think MS went and fucked up royal with the XBO (I'm going to keep abbreviating it that way as long as possible because XBone sounds absolutely ridiculous). The only thing they have going for them (IMO, at least) is Halo. I've sworn off giving Lionhead any more money after Fable 3, I'm just not interested in Gears of War anymore (I really enjoyed GoW3 but I felt like it was a good place to stop), while I liked Dead Rising I haven't bothered with DR2... Anything else I can get on PS4/PC for the most part.

It's looking like I'll be yet another Sony convert this time around. I'll just wait to get a cheap XBO when Halo 5 comes out, I guess.

I watched the Halo trailer. Didn't excite me. Halo 4 felt like it just came out, and I already felt like that one seemed rushed too soon after Reach. I used to be on the edge of my seat for even an announcement of a Halo novel. Now it just seems like a casual product that gets announced every couple of months.

Maybe if a future trailer capitalizes on some of the art direction, music, moods, and tones of the original Halos I might get excited. But of course, unless the XboxOne changes its stance on DRM and internet requirements, I won't even have the system Halo is made for anymore.

Strange days.

Of such - I concur. Then again that is why we are here at DBO. ;)

Weird for me was I was passively interested in what this dude out in the middle of a desert was doing, and what this game was... and then the hood came down, and I saw it was the Chief, and I immediately lost all interest.

I did not expect that. Even after how much I hated Halo 4.

It's easier actually…. A lot of the tricks give bigger boosts on the PC version too, and wall run kick jumping is easier if you bind jump to the mousewheel.

As Cody said, it's actually a bit easier for most.

And if things go worse, rather than better, you can always use a 360 controller.

Overall I wasn't blown away by the MS Press Conference but Titanfall looked really interesting and Halo looked a little goofy to me. So far the EA Conference really excited me even more. BF4 honestly looks sick. I was expecting a clone of BF3 but they really brought their A-Game. And heck Battlefront 3!!!!

I honestly don't know much about the universe and gameplay of Destiny. I'm trying not to spoil myself too much before spending cumulative days playing what should be a stellar new epic. What I know for certain that'll make Destiny stand out from the crowd is an awesome developer and a community that thrives off of each other's love.

Awh look at me getting all sappy. :P

Microsoft did what the PS3 did last time & Sony did what the Xbox did last time.
