Agreed with, slowdog here. Coming into this topic I thought it was a negative sensationalistic article lol

ugh. i hate lazy sensationalistic incorrect headlines. "pleads for affection" ridiculous. makes it sound like they were on their hands and knees, hands cupped, saying "please like us. pleeeeeease".

its made even worse by the fact that is a (weird) positive article. the headline is just designed to entice clicks by the braindead fanboys that permeate every crevice of the web.


Which is why you dont create a headline for an article that the people that need to read it most will skip over and ignore.

Also if I am not mistaken, more CGI was shown vs gameplay!

That is a good collection of what happened at e3, broken down in what people appear to care about when it comes to their games.

Edit: Best I can tell, this doesn't take into account games shown after their initial e3 reveal, such as nintendos code name: Steam.

That does sum it up pretty well.

The last one especially, shows why most people think Nintendo won E3.

Microsofts E3 wasn't bad at all, they showed nothing but games.
But they didn't show anything really special, either.

It was just like the other two shows: average to good.

People were expecting something big from MS, because they are behind and the sales haven't exactly been good either the last few months.
But nothing big really came up.

The Halo collection is nice, but I think most people were expecting at least some game play from Halo 5.

Good read.
But again MS could have done a better job by securing more exclusive and better first party games for this year at least.
Also if I am not mistaken, more CGI was shown vs gameplay!


same as sony conference and MS showed more exclusives.

but for some reason people get blinded by facts. MS could show 20 exclusive titles and 2 multiplatform, have 18 of the 20 exclusives showing gameplay and 2 cgi and people would still say that everything was cgi and that ms needs to get exclusives.

people are just so bias because of the reveal, and the biggest problem with the reveal was how stupid gamers were and how selfish they can be.

If you compare sony and ms reveals you will realize they were very similar with around the same allotment of time given to games and non games. but people go into those things with what they expect to see and they come out with what they expect to see even if its false.

Then you get the journalists, if you can call them that, they are just as bad. One person makes a comment on a forum, or a blog and now every gaming journalist picks it up . Doesnt matter if its factual or not. They print it anyways.

A pretty good article explaining the games that were shown at E3 2014. This is why I can't believe people are genuinely saying that MS' E3 was horrible. How? Did you watch it?


The only game on that list that appealed to me (that was exclusive) was Scalebound. Microsoft isn't appealing to people that aren't halo/gears/forza fans and have either the PS4 or are on the fence.

If Halo/gears/forza is your thing, then it was a win conference (and that is fine, because we all have different likes & dislikes).

* Sunset wasn't a deciding factor, because by now you have either made an opinion about it or not

* Fable - has never been a system seller

* Dance Central (enough said)

* Phantom Dust - niche group that likes card strategy games

* Project Spark - As a Conker fan, this was a very bitter pill to swallow

* Halo Collection + Halo 5 - This was like half of their conference (at least it felt like it). For those not interested in Halo, this fell on deaf ears. This is not going to be a system seller for the masses, more so those that were halo fans but on the fence.

Crackdown - The first two were bad (subject to opinion of course), so there is no hope for this to be good, not to mention the trailer didn't look that great

Inside - Looked good, but XBLA games will never be system sellers

Scalebound - this was in my opinion the only thing that looked good from Microsoft. Not coming out till next year, so I can wait on a console purchase (would like to see actual gameplay as well of Scalebound)



The rest were multiplats which have been playing better on the Playstation 4 this generation. Timed & exclusive DLC is never a console selling idea. I don't understand why both Microsoft & Sony are stuck on stupid with securing DLC early or exclusively. It's always something nominal anyways.

The conference itself wasn't bad, there just wasn't nothing to entice people to buy the console that either have a PS4 and/or don't like Halo.

The problem is that people want these 2 things: 1- JRPGS, 2- Star Wars games. They also don't want to wait until the end of 2015 for them. It's just that simple.
