Antony June 9, 201412:02 pm

We’ll see you at whatever liveblog is next. I’m gonna go and eat some food.

Shaxster June 9, 201412:01 pm

RIGHT! That’s that. Thanks for joining us: EA’s next in one hour time – join us over here for that one.

E3 2014: EA Press Conference Live Blog

Antony June 9, 201412:01 pm

Highlights are definitely Crackdown, Master Chief Collection, Inside and Project Spark. It’s been a good conference, but whether it’s enough to throw off the competition… we’ll see.

Shaxster June 9, 201412:00 pm

Gears logo teased at the end there.

Shaxster June 9, 201412:00 pm

Main takeaway from this conference: the days of gritty dark brown first person shooters is over. Mostly.

Antony June 9, 201411:59 am

One down, four to go.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:59 am

Just a show reel. This has been a prettttty good conference.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:59 am

One more teaser maybe? Or just a showreel?

Antony June 9, 201411:58 am

So Crackdown is what they’re ending on?

Shaxster June 9, 201411:58 am

Right, that’s this one over I think. Spencer’s wrapping up.

Antony June 9, 201411:58 am

Platinum Games isn’t a game, guy.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:57 am

pfft i don’t know i’m like 12 years old

Antony June 9, 201411:56 am

I never played much Crackdown 2, did they go anywhere with the whole “The Agency are the bad guys really maybe” ending to the first one (spoiler alert) or not?

Shaxster June 9, 201411:56 am

Oh god the boom boom boom and bang bang bang and the music and the cars and YES

Shaxster June 9, 201411:55 am

Yup, Crackdown. God this looks good.

Antony June 9, 201411:55 am

CRACKDOWN

Antony June 9, 201411:55 am

Microsoft cramming as much as it can into the final stages of their presser. Which is nice.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:55 am

New cloud-powered open world remake of an old game.

Antony June 9, 201411:54 am

And now for CloudGen.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:54 am

Well, that’s us done then. Or..wait. No. Surprise time.

Antony June 9, 201411:54 am

The Platinum Games team are back, fresh off of Bayonetta. With a game that looks utterly beautiful. Can’t wait for the complaints when actual gameplay ends up looking much more average.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:53 am

ACTION DRAGON KILLING PLATFORMER: Scalebound. Yup. Yup yup yup.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:53 am

Oh jeez this looks like a lot of fun.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:52 am

Colourful lush rainforest. Dragons. SOLD.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:52 am

New Xbox exclusive.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:52 am

Hideki Kamiya now. From Platinum Games.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:51 am

Yes, it’s people. Well, actors. Actors might be people. I’m not sure.

Antony June 9, 201411:51 am

Yeah, it’s people. Not the kind of people that you’re ever gonna actually play with though. Sucks to be you.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:51 am

This is people. Must be.

Antony June 9, 201411:50 am

I can’t tell if this is people talking or in-game dialogue. It’s gotta be people, right?

Shaxster June 9, 201411:50 am
Shaxster June 9, 201411:50 am

This has a Last of Us feel. I don’t know why. I think it’s because it’s snowing. Still. Last of Us. Division. Good. Yay. Gaems.

Antony June 9, 201411:50 am

I wouldn’t be surprised if we end on Beyond Good and Evil 2.

Antony June 9, 201411:49 am

That floating UI is gonna be really easy to read on the 12-inch TV screen in my room.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:49 am

It won’t end on this: got ten minutes still. I’m predicting a total shock ending.

Antony June 9, 201411:48 am

If The Division is what Microsoft are ending on, are we gonna get a quick surprise from Ubi to wrap things up and grab some extra viewers for their own presser?

Shaxster June 9, 201411:48 am

Oh god this game’s floating UI is beautiful. #nextgen

Shaxster June 9, 201411:47 am

That is a really really cool map. Which is the nerdiest thing I’ve ever said.

Antony June 9, 201411:47 am

But this is the most interested I’ve been in a Tom Clancy game since GRAW 2. Day one buy for me if I have a new generation console by then.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:47 am

Interesting song choice…

Antony June 9, 201411:46 am

The crowd sounds like it’s tuned out a bit.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:46 am

Also: that Ubi/Sony partnership is dead, isn’t it.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:46 am

The Division! Which takes away a lot of Ubi’s briefing surprises.

Antony June 9, 201411:46 am

They DID say it was original Xbox title. Pay attention, Shackles.

Antony June 9, 201411:46 am

Oh, it’s Phantom Dust! Sweet. I played that once.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:45 am

Oh, it’s not Crackdown. Phantom Dust. Ok.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:45 am

This Crackdown game puts Infamous right in its place.

Antony June 9, 201411:45 am

Nah, they said the original Xbox, didn’t they?

Shaxster June 9, 201411:45 am

Oh, sidenote: Halo MC Collection is only $60. Which is awesome.

Antony June 9, 201411:44 am

I’m trying to work it out…

Shaxster June 9, 201411:44 am

Oh. Yeah. CRACKDOWN.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:44 am

I’m too young to know what this is

Antony June 9, 201411:44 am

Fifteen minutes to go… One more surprise tucked away, perhaps?

Shaxster June 9, 201411:44 am

Another reboot…

Antony June 9, 201411:43 am

Killer Instict, okay.

Antony June 9, 201411:43 am

If the word of the day for this conference is “vista”, then the image of the day is definitely severed heads.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:43 am

Killer Instinct now.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:43 am

This looks nice. Overly long demo though.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:40 am

Yeah, this is trying to tap into the hardcore 360 audience that they lost to Sony.

Antony June 9, 201411:39 am

So we can pretty much conclude that this conference is more Microsoft trying to win back old players than attract new ones, right? Sure seems to be looking that way.

Antony June 9, 201411:38 am

On the other hand, I have never really kept up with the Witcher series. Let’s see if this sells me on anything.

Antony June 9, 201411:38 am

Ah yes, of course. Love the new direction Tomb Raider is taking. Will be keeping track of that.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:38 am

Gameplay demo for The Witcher 3. Looks nice.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:37 am

Witcher 3!

Shaxster June 9, 201411:37 am

OH no Rise of the Tomb Raider is an awful title.

Antony June 9, 201411:37 am

That would make more sense.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:37 am

Yes, this is Tomb Raider. OH YES. Loved the last one.

Antony June 9, 201411:37 am

That looked awfully like Beyond. It can’t be though, can it?

Shaxster June 9, 201411:37 am

Is this Tomb Raider?

Antony June 9, 201411:36 am

BEYOND?!

Antony June 9, 201411:36 am

HAHA THAT CROWD SHOT

Antony June 9, 201411:35 am

I got a score of 25,000 on Threes and lost the will to ever play it again.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:35 am

Right, Sony. Microsoft just brought the big indie guns.

Antony June 9, 201411:35 am

Oh, and Threes. Because that dead horse hasn’t been beaten enough yet.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:35 am

Some of my favourite games of last-gen were indie, so I’m looking forward to these. Always some gems out there. Below looks great, of course.

Antony June 9, 201411:35 am

Fru looks interesting there. Kinect-based platformer where you are the platforms? Might be worth a look.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:34 am

Threes! On Xbox! Woah!

Antony June 9, 201411:34 am

I’m sceptical of “artsy” games but White Night does look pretty damn good.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:34 am

All sorts of quirky-super-cool indie games in this show reel. Can’t wait for them.

Antony June 9, 201411:34 am

We said Microsoft needed to up their indie support, looks like they’re doing just that.

Antony June 9, 201411:33 am

Did I see a Q.U.B.E. screenshot there? Is that on Xbox?

Shaxster June 9, 201411:32 am

ID @ Xbox. It’s indie timeeee.

Antony June 9, 201411:32 am

It’s probably not a Limbo game, but it’s from the makers of. Anything Playdead is fine with me.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:32 am

It’s called Inside, not Limbo 2.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:31 am

For the record, I hated the first Limbo. Couldn’t get past the first spider then gave up and got mad.

Antony June 9, 201411:31 am

I am a giggling ball of happiness living in a bigger ball of happiness.

Antony June 9, 201411:31 am

HE’S DOING IT

Shaxster June 9, 201411:31 am

Right, this is their 2015 lineup now. Quantum Break to start with…NOPE it’s Limbo!

Antony June 9, 201411:30 am

He’s so not gonna do it.

Antony June 9, 201411:30 am

Nice Limbo t-shirt. Announce a new Limbo game. Now. DO IT.

Antony June 9, 201411:29 am

They were the best levels on Halo Combat Evolved, and Gephyrophobia is still the best Halo multiplayer level ever.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:29 am

Phil Spencer’s back. We’ve been going for a solid hour at this point, about 30 minutes left for them to bring out the big guns.

Antony June 9, 201411:28 am

Surely Halo 6 would be the last part of the Master Chief experience?

Shaxster June 9, 201411:28 am

Antony, I can honestly say that I don’t know what any of those words mean.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:28 am

Halo 5 beta as well. How exciting.

Antony June 9, 201411:28 am

That’s the best announcement of the conference so far.

Antony June 9, 201411:27 am

CHIRON TL-34 AND GEPHYROPHOBIA ARE BACK

Shaxster June 9, 201411:27 am

Includes Halo Nightfall: the live action series produced by Ridley Scott. Lays the story out for Halo 5.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:27 am

This is all 1080p 60fps as well. With 4000 gamerscore. Because that’s relevant.

Antony June 9, 201411:26 am

Have the devs been paid to say “vista” as much as possible? I thought Microsoft would be trying to do anything but remind people of that.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:26 am

Oh god I’m going to suck at the multiplayer on this SO BADLY.

Antony June 9, 201411:26 am

Nice to see them bringing back the Halo 2-style multiplayer exactly as it was a decade ago.

Antony June 9, 201411:25 am

I wonder if we’ll get the classic Blood Gulch, or just the updated version.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:25 am

Will contain the original Halo 2 multiplayer. Which is supposedly a big deal.

Antony June 9, 201411:24 am

I guess that wasn’t really Master Chief, so question redacted.

Antony June 9, 201411:24 am

There’s the Master Chief collection we’ve been hearing about. No ODST, though? Or is that part of the Halo 3 bit?

Shaxster June 9, 201411:23 am

November 11: Halo The Master Chief Collection coming to Xbox One. Halo 1, 2, 3, 4. Yay.

Antony June 9, 201411:23 am

Snape killed Master Chief.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:23 am

“It’s about buzzword buzzword buzzword buzzword buzzword”

Shaxster June 9, 201411:22 am
Antony June 9, 201411:22 am

SPOILER ALERT

Shaxster June 9, 201411:22 am

I do really like the Halo music. Shame that dude got fired. Also, this dev just spoiled the end of Halo 4. Screw you!

Antony June 9, 201411:22 am

Ooooooh Bonnie Ross

Shaxster June 9, 201411:21 am
Shaxster June 9, 201411:21 am

This + HD Collection means I’ll probably finally play the Halo series.

Antony June 9, 201411:20 am

If I could be any character in a video game I’d be the oh wait nevermind it’s Halo again

Shaxster June 9, 201411:20 am

HALO CHOIR GUYS

Shaxster June 9, 201411:19 am

HALO CHOIR

Shaxster June 9, 201411:19 am

HALO CHOIR

Antony June 9, 201411:19 am

The atmosphere in that room is probably incredible right now. The atmosphere in my living room is that of a semi-approving shrug.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:19 am

Moon Studio, apparently.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:19 am

Ori: Blind Forest. Developed by…who knows.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:18 am

I want this game quite badly. I like nice pretty arty games with good music. What is it?

Antony June 9, 201411:18 am

yay artsy games. i like artsy games i am an art student who lives in starbucks and this is appealing to me

Antony June 9, 201411:17 am

You’re missing out, Shax.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:17 am

This looks beautiful. Limbo 2 or something.

Antony June 9, 201411:17 am

CONKER?

Shaxster June 9, 201411:17 am

Can’t help feeling a little ambivalent about this. I don’t even know who Conker is.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:16 am

I’ve updated this post with a better stream embed: refresh to see the new stream.

Antony June 9, 201411:16 am

So Project Spark is basically an RPGmaker for consoles? I like.

Antony June 9, 201411:15 am

If I could mix two games, I’d mix Viva Pinata and Left 4 Dead.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:15 am

Project Spark, yeah?

Antony June 9, 201411:14 am

These random cutaways… I don’t get the point.

Antony June 9, 201411:13 am

“Playing the villain” in the sense of being the antagonist. Rather than just being a dickhead and eating baby chickens.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:13 am

Yeah, that’s true. None of this is…new.

Antony June 9, 201411:13 am

Though while I was typing that, I was distracted by the thought of playing the villain in Fable, which is something long overdue.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:13 am
Antony June 9, 201411:12 am

It wasn’t supposed to be a joke, merely a statement of how the weight of these series’ inclusions in Xbox conference has severely deteriorated over time. These look fancy, but Microsoft isn’t gonna come out of E3 looking as strong as it would like to if these are the heavy hitters.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:12 am

You can be the villain in Legends, with a god-game like mode. Asynchronous multiplayer, yo. It’s the future.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:11 am

Speaking of not funny: none of the jokes in Fable Legends are even vaguely amusing and all of them will get tiresome after 20 minutes of gameplay.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:10 am

That was the most forced joke ever, Antony. Three of those four are yearly franchises. But good try, buddy. Maybe one day you’ll be funny.

Antony June 9, 201411:10 am

Is that Mike Myers?

Antony June 9, 201411:09 am

Call of Duty, Forza, Assassin’s Creed, Fable… It’s a Class of 2008 Reunion today at E3.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:09 am

This looks alright I guess

Shaxster June 9, 201411:08 am

David Eckleberry now. For some Fablez.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:08 am

September: Dance Central Spotlight. I know what I’m playing for 24 hours this year…(god help me).

Antony June 9, 201411:07 am

And here comes the new Dance Central! Shax, pay attention.

Antony June 9, 201411:07 am

And availble now! Nicely done, Capcom.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:07 am

Harmonixxxxx. Dance Central 4?

Antony June 9, 201411:06 am

“Boom-shaka-likey” is something I’d expect to hear from Mr. Caffeine.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:06 am

Super Ultra Dead Rising 3 Arcade Remix Hyper Edition EX Plus Alpha. Available now. Best game name ever???

Antony June 9, 201411:06 am

Dead Rising Arcade? Well, this could be cool.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:06 am

Haha, Dead Rising 3 Arcade. Can cosplay as Ryu in an arcade-y version of the game.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:05 am

8 player multiplayer as well! Co-op hoard mode esque thing. Coming October 28.

Antony June 9, 201411:05 am

This is the answer to the Infamous series that Microsoft has been waiting for, and so much more at the same time.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:04 am

Yeah, this even goes beyond Titanfall’s level of fluid. Seems to have it all figured out…whether it will work in real, open-world rather than scripted demos remains to be seen though.

Antony June 9, 201411:04 am

What I said about Assassin’s Creed’s combat being fluid… It’s got nothing on this.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:03 am

Ridiculous weapons, awesome traversal, comedy…what more could you want?

Shaxster June 9, 201411:03 am

I think the colour in this makes it really special. It’s just so…happy.

Antony June 9, 201411:02 am

You can tell this is a serious labour of love, this game. I really want it to do well, it’s the main thing tempting me to choose Xbox One over PS4 right now.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:01 am

Ah, this looks to be wonderfully lighthearted. Can’t wait.

Shaxster June 9, 201411:01 am
Antony June 9, 201411:00 am

Haha! Suckered me in, Insomniac. Nicely done. We Sunset Overdrive now!

Shaxster June 9, 201411:00 am

Hahahaha, this is a great trailer for Sunset Overdrive. Takes the piss out of gritty FPS trailers beautifully.

Antony June 9, 201410:59 am

More guns! Shoot the gun kill the mens shooty shooty kill

Antony June 9, 201410:59 am

It looks exactly like a new generation open world RPG should do. Never really followed the Dragon Age series but that looked pretty promising.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:59 am
Shaxster June 9, 201410:59 am

Metal Gear?

Shaxster June 9, 201410:59 am

Dragon Age dated for October 7th. Not an exclusive, unsurprisingly.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:59 am

By the way if the Twitch stream is down for you then this one should still work: http://www.spike.com/netstorage/e3/live.html

Shaxster June 9, 201410:58 am

I think so.

Antony June 9, 201410:57 am

Is this Dragon Age?

Shaxster June 9, 201410:57 am

Bioware!

Shaxster June 9, 201410:57 am

Random video showing off developers’ first games now, trying to make sure you remember that DEVELOPERS HAVE FEELINGS TOOO

Antony June 9, 201410:56 am

Seems like it’s drop in, drop out to the regular campaign. Like, I dunno, Dead Island?

Shaxster June 9, 201410:56 am

Oh god that decapitated head was gruesome.

Antony June 9, 201410:56 am

Combat looks fluid as ever. And yeah, it looks like the Screed team saw how well done the lighting in Bioshock Infinite was, and thought “we want a piece of that”.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:56 am

Can’t tell if the co-op is the main campaign or a separate storyline.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:55 am

Agreed, the costumes in this game are good. And the lighting effects…beautiful.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:54 am

Right, we’re definitely doing a Unity gamernight.

Antony June 9, 201410:54 am

Can Insert Coin put this assassin’s coat on sale as merch please? Or something like it? It’s beautiful.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:54 am

This is looking good so far. It’ll be good and I’ll play it regardless, because AC, but at least it looks fun. And the co-op is very nice.

Antony June 9, 201410:53 am

I’ll agree the online multiplayer does sound good, though. And yeah, FPS is holding up well considering the amount of entities on screen.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:52 am

There are a *lot* of people on screen at any one time. Very impressive.

Antony June 9, 201410:52 am

I’ll start paying more attention to Screed again when they finally visit Feudal Japan.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:51 am

Online multiplayer four-player brotherhood in Unity. That’s super-cool.

Antony June 9, 201410:51 am

Assassin’s Creed!

Shaxster June 9, 201410:51 am

Didn’t expect Ass Creed to make an appearance here. Guess this is the end of the Sony partnership?

Antony June 9, 201410:51 am

Left for Dead meets Battlefield? More an amalgamation than an evolution, but okay.

Antony June 9, 201410:50 am

Be careful calling something the “evolution of gaming”. That’s a hefty claim.

Antony June 9, 201410:49 am

Oh, hello 2K.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:49 am

Evolve! Which isn’t an exclusive. But the beta is!

Antony June 9, 201410:49 am

I think of instant multiplayer in driving games and I’m assuming that it’ll work something like how Test Drive did? Can’t fault that too much, that’s exactly how I’d want multiplayer in driving games to work.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:48 am

Dramatic weather. Dramatic weather. That is a thing they actually just said.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:48 am

Yeah, Twitter/myself/everyone agrees with Antony. This is a weak start to this conference. Bring out the big guns and some surprises.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:48 am
Antony June 9, 201410:47 am

I understand that Call of Duty and Forza were always going to show up in this conference, but opening with them back to back? This is like the time they opened with Tony Hawk’s Ride and Tiger Wood’s PGA Tour. I hope they’ve got some real heavy hitters lined up after this.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:47 am

September 30th launch. The game looks pretty but other than that it’s just a Forza game. So it’ll be alright I guess.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:47 am

Instant multiplayer: no lobbies or waiting. Hmmmmmm I’m so skeptical of that

Shaxster June 9, 201410:46 am

ANTONY THIS ISN’T THE TIME OR PLACE FOR SPORTS

Shaxster June 9, 201410:46 am

Forza: Horizon 2: Stare At It To Avoid Sea-sickness

Antony June 9, 201410:45 am

Leyton Hewitt is four games to two up in the second set against Gimeno-Traver, if anyone wants to keep up with something a little more interesting right now.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:45 am

Oh a nurburgring can i have fries with that (get it because burger hahahaha i’m so bored)

Antony June 9, 201410:44 am

From Call of Duty to Forza. Oh, Christ.

Antony June 9, 201410:44 am

Well, that’s Call of Duty alright.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:43 am

FORZAAAAA VROOOOM VROOOOOM

Shaxster June 9, 201410:43 am

Well that was the weakest start possible to this conference.

Why would you show off this game and not show off the only good thing about it: Kevin Spacey?

Antony June 9, 201410:40 am

….Holograms?

Shaxster June 9, 201410:40 am

Nah, it’s robot drone bad Russian Nazi Arabs, probably.

Antony June 9, 201410:40 am

Can’t tell if these are aliens or a swarm of drones.

Antony June 9, 201410:40 am

Are they fighting aliens?

Shaxster June 9, 201410:39 am

God, this looks so dull.

Antony June 9, 201410:37 am

Is that Ricky Gervais playing this?

Shaxster June 9, 201410:37 am

Woah, a dystopic capital city with drones. That’s not something we’ve *ever* seen before.

Antony June 9, 201410:37 am

Explosions too. Definitely Call of Duty.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:37 am

Sure haven’t seen anything “revolutionary” or a “reinvention” of the franchise yet.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:36 am

Well this CoD game is certainly a CoD game. It has guns and everything.

Antony June 9, 201410:36 am

Getting ODST vibes from this footage.

Antony June 9, 201410:35 am

The timed exclusivity on CoD content for Xbox has been announced so many years in a row now that it really isn’t an announcement anymore. It’s like announcing that bread is edible.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:35 am

Efffff me this game is pretty.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:34 am

It’s Call of Duty: Kevin Spacey edition.

Antony June 9, 201410:34 am

We’re starting with Call of Duty. Is anyone surprised? Are you surprised? I’m not surprised.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:34 am

DLC is Xbox timed-exclusive, as always.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:34 am

WHY WOULD YOU KICK OFF WITH CALL OF DUTY. WHY.

Antony June 9, 201410:34 am

“We’re dedicating our entire briefing to games” BET YOU’RE NOT

Antony June 9, 201410:33 am

Sportz sportz sportz comes in the E3 conference, Shaxster. Patience.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:33 am

“You are shaping the future of Xbox”. Well…yes. Because you give into public pressure on everything.

Antony June 9, 201410:33 am

Nice glowing wristbands in the crowd. Looks like a Coldplay concert.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:32 am

Clearly just talking about games here. Shame, I wanted to hear about sportz sportz sportz

Shaxster June 9, 201410:32 am

Took less than 30 seconds to mention “developers”. Suck ups.

Antony June 9, 201410:31 am

If Red Dead gets a new announcement today, I hope they follow the example I’ve been setting for years and call it Red Dead Repentence.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:31 am

Two watches. Always two watches.

Antony June 9, 201410:31 am

We heard wrong! Microsoft are underway on time. Whee.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:31 am

It’sssss Phil Spencer.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:31 am

Well, this is a funky opener. EDGY EDGY XBOX

Antony June 9, 201410:31 am

Looks like it’s gonna be business as usual for Microsoft. Games, Xbox Live enhancements, more games, and the eventual angry tweeting afterwards. Party time.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:30 am

Last minute left-field prediction: Red Dead 3 (2?)

Shaxster June 9, 201410:30 am

We’re hearing that the start’s been delayed a little bit…now we wait patiently.

Antony June 9, 201410:29 am

Hello. Let’s get this rollercoaster of emotions underway.

Shaxster June 9, 201410:27 am

Righto, we’re five minutes away from starting. Covering Microsoft with me is Antony: say hi!
