So, I've been on media blackout all weekend. I was too busy to watch any of the press conferences until today at work (don't worry, I was actually working while the things played on my second screen) and I just finished EA, Bethesda and MS's.
EAs was boring until the Battlefront stuff. Although A Way Out looked pretty cool too. Everything else was sports or racing and I just tuned out.
Bethesda's was entertaining. And they have TWO games coming out in mid-October? Did I see that correctly? They know how to put on a show.
MS's... oh boy. That was so boring. I literally had to stop what I was working on to shake my head in disbelief as to what they were showing. Instead of being Debbie Downer and inundating everyone with why I thought they set the bar super low for Sony to hurdle over with ease, I'll just mention what I liked. Metro looked good. Real good. Anthem looks like a Destiny killer. Original Xbox BC is super sweet. I'd love to replay Knights of the Old Republic 1 & 2 (but... not a whole lot else). Life is Strange prequel, also is a must buy for me. And Sea of Thieves didn't look horrible, but if The Tomorrow Children has taught me anything about co-op games of that sort is that it only takes a few wretched individuals to ruin the game for everyone. Ori 2 looks good too. But other than all of the above (2 of which are coming to the PS4 anyhow) I saw no reason for me to own an Xbox One. I'd like to formally thank Don Mattrick for sending me down the correct path this gen.
