Why Xbox E3 2017 was GREAT

The main E3 conference for Xbox has ended. You know what? I thought it was good. Damn good. It started off with the now named Xbox One X, and it seems like a cool machine, might pick it up. It apparently is quite small for a system of its type and that is impressive. Then, what was most of the show? Games. Game after game after game, it was awesome. Seeing all of these new titles was a treat and many of them looked so interesting. 

The Ori sequel trailer for example, was beautiful and emotional, and there were some other reveals that were great like Forza 7 and and some games where the names escape me currently. I am tired so give me a break. XD 

So what is not to love? We saw a gaming company clearly show the focus of its brand. Many games on display and a great direction going forward. 

The thing is, were any of these Xbox One exclusive? Technically no, they all are for Windows 10 as well. The thing also is, I don't care. I prefer consoles, that's my thing and if PC gamers get to experience these games too, why the hell would I complain about it? My preferred platform is getting the game too, so it doesn't matter to me. People are getting so fucking obsessed with 'exclusivity' that they don't even talk about the great games shown. It is sad. The main thing of the industry, ignored because of some weird obsession. 

I don't think the show was 100% perfect, Assassin's Creed should have been for Ubisoft's show I feel, but whatever. As a gamer, there was a lot for me to love. Not once did I think 'this better be Xbox One exclusive', because i don't give a shit about that.

There's my rambling take on the show. I thought it was great. If you didn't, fine, all is opinion anyways.

You actually made a point here, that i heard from youtube reviewer Caddicarus (who BTW is a very underrated personality. check him out at some point) and he also says that he prefers to play his games on the console instead of the PC, because he already spends alot of time on the PC doing work and other stuff. He likes to sit on his couch, turn on his console and just relax by playing some games. So yeah, i can where both of you come from. :)

If you really have 300-something Xbox One games, Kyoshi, I see no reason why you shouldn't pick up the X. You are clearly loyal to the brand, why restrict yourself from getting the best experience they have to offer.

I just wish they showed off Sunset Overdrive 2 and Forza Horizon 4 lol. Even if they were late 2018 releases, it woulda been so freaking cool to see em. 

I await Sony and Nintendo's conferences with bated breath~~

I am actually subscribed to him and I remember that video, it was pretty cool. :) I just want people to enjoy gaming and enjoy the experiences it offers, rather than bickering about stuff ya know?

I hope to get the system, I have 350+ plus games for the One. :D I may save up to get it at launch.

Cuphead. That is all. 

Finally, right? Been so long for that and I am so eager to see how it turns out. :)

Also, did you guys see 'The Last Night'? That game looked amazing on a visual level. That was one of the games I couldn't remember the name for because of me being tired. XD It looks awesome though.

I thought Microsoft's E3 conference was okay. For me, it seemed a little too predictable and there weren't any real surprises announced outside of OG Xbox BC. I would have been more excited if there was at least one new first party game coming to the One that we didn't already know about. Something outside of the three Microsoft IPs that are Halo, Gears, and Forza would have been nice, but whatever, I guess.

Kyoshi, you'll be glad to know (being the Xbox fanboy you are lol; inb4 denial) that Sony's E3 conference was a disappointment on all fronts.

2 Exciting games, one of which a remake. Everything else? Garbage (or at least mediocre)

 

With Microsoft, there was at least consistency with the games they showed off. Some were very lackluster, but many were at least "passable" in my eyes. For Sony, it was either Godlike or complete trash Dx

I wouldn't say I am a fanboy just because I am passionate. I find it a shame that the Sony conference was so disappointing, it sounds like they are in bed with Activision waaaaaaaaaaaaay too much.

Well we did get motherfucking Shadow of the Colossus Hd! (And when I say "HD" I don't mean Ps3 remaster "HD" more like Ratchet&Clank(Ps4) or Crash Bandicoot(Ps4) "HD" xDDD I have seriously never been more excited for a game announced at E3 EVER!

However, one game does not make an entire conference. Just cuz you got one allstar player on your team doesn't make up for the rest of the players slouching :P 

The other game I was excited for was Monster Hunter World, which is #1 a multiplat (i think) and #2 a freaking Monster Hunter game -.- Gotta admit the trailer really impressed toward the end. But yeah those two games were literally it for me. Practically everything else was a slap in the face to a longtime Sony fan. Quick Time Events as far as the eye can see~~ Q.Q

Was surprised by that Monster Hunter announcement. I will definitely get that on the One, never played one of those games and I have heard countless good things about them.

I can't believe there was no price drop lmao. I mean, it doesn't effect me, as I already have a Ps4 Pro, but srsly? Why not drop the $400 price tag to $350? They would have cleaned up vs. the Xbox One X 

Maybe they'll wait for November lol, idk

Also, that's only accurate for Destiny and CoD. Both of which if you're a sane person you'll avoid.
