All the hootin' and hollerin' I hear from gamers is eerily similar to all the past Nintendo press conferences, particularly with most games related to the Kinect.

MS Press conference started alright, showing games and having kinect features added to games. Then there was the kinect section, good lord how bad was that. fable 4 a on rails shooter, fudge that, Star Wars: the arm failing, kill me now.

My Highlights: The new Kinect Hub looks good
Minecraft! (the only MEGATON)
Dance Central 2
Kinect Labs could do some neat stuff.
Ghost Recon Gun Modding looked slick.

Lowlights
Everything else in the Kinect Section. Good lord that was bad.

You're mistaking them.

They are mad at Microsoft's apparent inability to learn from past mistakes. Nintendo messed up hard with all this same stuff two years ago. And Microsoft has gone and done almost the exact same thing.

That's what I'm talking about. MS is doing the same thing Nintendo did.

You'd think these people who claim to stand by hardcore gamers would try to market this stuff outside of E3 instead of subjecting them to it.

indeed. i was wondering if MS was in fact making an Xbox conference or advertising for the voice system of Windows 8.

i hate when companies get hopped on gimmicks and forget it's games that gamers want...

Ubisoft's was kinda fun. Looking forward to Farcry 3, but not much else.
I liked the energy of some of the presenters, even though the games largely didn't appeal to me personally.

Another hour or so until Sony. This one is big so I hope you guys watch.
Stop by the IRC for the added fun of commentary, heckling, larfing, and cringing.

Seriously, you can really feel the collective cringing when those moments come up.

EDIT: Sony is up next. This should be a good end to the day.

Almost every game has a number 2 or higher beside it, also halo 4..shoot me now..

Although Skyrim and ME3 have me giddy despite the fact that they are sequals
