I can not wait to see what 343 has cooked up with Halo 4 at E3. Easily my most anticipated game of this year for 2 reasons.
1. A new dev taking control of my favorite franchise could be incredible or disastrous (but I'm cautiously optimistic)
2. Return of the Chief baby.

Campaign looks amazing from what we've seen and heard so far. Multiplayer on the other hand I need to try before I say anything. Some changes seem very drastic and some of the decisions I am not a fan of. I'll probably like it, but need to see more in regards to multiplayer.

But yeah, that is my most anticipated game this year as well. Hopefully it blows us away at e3.

Once again you can see that Pachter is biased towards microsoft and other companies. he either shares stock in them or has several clients that do.

He was asked a question,"What do you REALLY think about navigating the menu with motion controls (Kinect)?" and he completely bated and switched topics, brought up how Apple allows people to scroll their devices. However, he didn't answer the question. It had nothing to do with Apple, but Pachter, smart guy that he is, saw a chance to save Microsoft and promote another favored company in one swoop. He does it all the time. See if you can pick up on it.

He did answer the question. He said that he doesn't like having a controller in his hand and pushing buttons to "page down" 100 pages. That is when he brought up Apple saying that he would rather have a tablet where he can just flick his hand across the screen and it easily scrolls. He also said that MS is close to Apple as you just flick you hand in the air and it the menu's just scroll across the screen.

What Pachter could have also pointed out is that Kinect uses voice commands, thus you don't need to wave your hands across in the air. Just say "Next" and the page automatically changes which to me is MUCH better than waiving my hands in the air or using a controller to hit buttons scrolling through 100's of pages. 1 less controller that needs to be on my table to run my electronics is a good thing IMO.
