Meh... The only game I'm slightly interested in is the new Need for Speed but I'm pretty sure they will fuck it up again.

HALO 4, I just didn't see this coming. Completely out of left field. HALO 4, 5,6 confirmed.

I think Microsoft completely forgot about the core-gamer. They were Kinect crazy, and all the game on Kinect didn't interest me, Fable look like garbage and I don't even know how bad that star wars game can possible turn out. It was jittery, and who wants to to wave their hands around with nothing in them? Kevin Butler was right, I need something to hold in my hand.

I'm glad YouTube is coming to Xbox, but I was hoping for a web browser that's better than the PS3's.
 
Excited: Halo 4

Worried: Bioshock Infinite

Hated: Majority of Kinect games coming soon...150 bucks burned.

Why? That game is probably going to the best of 2012 without a doubt in my mind. Ken Levine and Irrational are great developers, that push video games into a true story telling medium of its own. That game has pedigree in it's blood.

Why are you worried about it? Plus it doesn't come out till 2012 sometime.

I'm kind of worried about Frictional Games wanting to develop for the 360... They mentioned something about motion controls, and I really hope their games won't be AssBox exclusives from now on. Frictional is the only good horror game developer since Team Silent, and their next game is the only one I'm actually looking forward to.

I think if anything they're trying to make the Kinect appeal to them. See shit like Mass Effect 3 and Fable using Kinect.

Fable looked stupid....

Mass Effect 3 omg!!!!! That was awesome, it streamlines the gameplay, no more radial menu for the action sequences. The voice for th character interaction looks awesome its one step closer to fill immersion. I jizzed my pants a little bit

I'm liking the Skyrim gameplay at least.

You're seriously preaching to the choir as far as developing and story telling goes.

The Bioshock series is my favourite game series ever, that's why I'm worried. It looks great, but there were a few additions (like time-rip control? or whatever) that seemed like they might take away from the core that I love.

I will still probably buy the most advanced special edition game they'll sell, but little things like that, that are supposed to "wow" me, or get me excited - Tend to worry me when they're just so damn proud of it. That's why I listed it as "worried".

The only thing that can redeem this E3 is valve finally showing off Episode 3....

Watch out for snakes!
And with that, Just Cause 2 remains the only reason I own a 360. Until I get Windows 7 next year, at least.
