Microsoft kicked off this this year’s E3. Here’s what they showcased
Sam Fisher makes a comeback with a new Splinter Cell game. Being developed by Ubisoft Toronto, the demo shows that the game’s strayed a bit from its stealth roots.
Gears of War
Gears of War was the next game to be demoed. The game is being developed by People Can Fly studios, creators of games like Bulletstorm and is expected to include co-op gameplay.
Microsoft also showcased a new Forza being developed by a new developer, titled Forza Horizon. Unlike previous Forza games, this one looks to be open world with street and dirt roads.
Kinect, Smart Glass, Xbox Music
Besides trailers, Microsoft also had some gameplay demos of some of their most popular franchises
Halo 4 seemed like just another Halo title, there wasn’t anything groundbreaking that I could notice.
Lara Croft and Tomb Raider looked pretty good – if not for Lara’s constant moaning which sounds fairly disturbing.
Resident Evil 6
Also on display was Resident Evil 6 featuring what seems like hint of cell-shaded graphics.
Call of Duty: Black Ops 2
Rounding off the press conference was Call of Duty Black Ops 2, which had cinematics, guns, flying aircrafts and still managed to look more boring and repetitive than watching a painter paint a fence.
Overall, quite a disappointing E3 showcase by Microsoft. What’re your thoughts? Drop in a comment and let us know.
