It's that time of year again. E3 2018 is almost upon us, promising tons of new games, new platform announcements, and new hardware. But what does E3 2018 mean for Xbox and Microsoft this June 10th?
A Gears of War tactical game in the same design as Xcom... PLEASE BE TRUE! Seriously, that is the best fit for Gears if they want to try something different. A Gears Tactics game I am 100% down for. Anything that gives me more Xcom like play.
A Halo racer would be cool. Racing on warthogs and scorpion tanks as well as banshees.... Or a MS all star battle royale with guest appearances by blinx, conker and joana dark I kid... I kid
I wouldn't mind a cart racer starring Rare characters (with Blinx..why not). There was some concept art for this already that was pitched to MS. Every console I feel should have their own cart racing game with their own characters Mario style.
A Halo platformer then
Well jag... I was being facetious. Tell us, what do you want to see since we know you are the biggest fanatic of xbox around. http://assets.nydailynews.c...
@Jaguarevolved Lol what an amazing comment
You can already do that in Halo lol. You clearly don't play halo. The thing that makes Halo so great besides it's core mechanics is the fact it's more than just a fps. It can be a platformer, racer, tp Pacman, tp Jenga survival, arcade, sports, etc, possibilities are endless thanks to forge and gametypes.
@Jaquar Surely the PS4 hasn’t reached 80 million yet and by now the X1 would reached more than 30 million? Whatever float your boat man.
That's actually a really solid idea. But it should have it's own unique spin, like Mario + Rabbids for example. There's a lot of potential there.
"But it should have it's own unique spin" But of course, what that spin is...I couldn't tell you at this time, but it is something that should definitely be explored.
New AAA's for me. Let Coalition and 343 do different franchises. A painter with tons of talent gets bored painting the same thing over and over. It once wowed his audience but now they want to look at something brand new and different. They're world renowned painting but hes super talented let him paint other stuff. That's 343 and Coalition I don't understand this bondage of being tied down doing the same franchises for eternity. Maybe that's part of MS weird policy's or something who knows but the fact they haven't done anything new is eerie and baffling. Wishful thinking: I would like Phil to come out and introduce new projects from these two company's. You see the logo come up and you hear "from the creators of Halo or Coalition brings a new adventure"
No, I want my Halo on a consistent basis. Not much of a gears fan so IDGAF what the coalition do. Just keep my Halo coming. Why don't ppl say nothing about Mario zelda, etc? Halo has only had 5-6 mainline games yet ppl act like it's on 16
chiefJohn117 - Are you still confident MS is going to announce 3 new AAA ips? Remember that PM you sent me all those months back? You seemed fairly adamant back then, I just wonder if you still truly believe that now.
@oldboy lol you still remember that pm. That was the long on convince I ever had lol, good convo. I said unannounced. It may not be new IP, but it will be new unannounced. Place your bets y'all.
gangsta_red - How well would that sell? 500k first day and 350k get returned the next day lol. That's a terrible idea for a console who's player base largely wouldn't support that kind of game. Might be a good idea, it just wouldn't get support/sales.
I'm personally not concern about sales. I'm more interested in games and the idea of a tactics type game is great. And besides who is to say that it wouldn't sell?
I agree 100% - diversity in games is what we all need. At the end of the day sales are important, not record breaking sales - sales. I would be hoping for more from MS - I just cant see it happening. The best things they've done have been Cuphead and Ori.
I agree. I’d buy a tactical gears.
Or a new, original IP?
There's already those. How about that and a Gears Tactics game or does it matter that much?
So Microsoft is incapable of new IPs? Halo and Gears can't carry them forever. And they need successful risks. Sea of Thieves and State of Decay isn't one of them.
Except we have had new IPs like QB, Ryse, Cuphead, Ashen, State and Sea etc etc. So not really sure where you keep saying MS is incapable of new IPs. But we have had one new Halo and one new Gears...but for some reason this translates to Xbox only having Gears or Halo.
Then you would love the new Battletech.
I expect that “Greatest Games Lineup in Xbox History” tag line not to be uttered in any way at this conference
Halo, Gears, Forza nuff said
Haters will hate but people enjoy the games xbox gives it fans key word fans what they want
I want Perfect Dark reboot in the vein of Tom raider but with more tech but doubt it happens.
I personally favour a Deus Ex-like Perfect Dark .
i watch their every conference and most of them is just below critic. this year is going to be no different.
i already know what ms is doing this year because i worked on their media. this is lowballing it by a large factor. its not going to be low-key at all. in fact thats why they moved it to the ms theater.
Care to share through dm? :)))))
Oh no... Not another "I got inside info" guy.. You guys really try hard to make it seem like MS's conferences aren't pathetic.. I've seen like 12 of you "nuh-uh, MS E3 is gonna be amazing, I got inside sources" type of people this week alone.. If that's the case, then why don't you tell us what's being shown? And don't give me the whole "I can't do that, I would get fired", because your N4G moniker will not reveal your identity at all.
Modeare expectations, I think thats fare!
Halo - Gears - Forza - Fable
