OXCGN describes a recent Microsoft event before having some harsh words to say about Microsoft's marketing campaigns writing:
"But in what increasingly appears to be a Microsoft problem at large, they don't seem to know how to promote anything other than first person shooters and franchise blockbusters.
It seems, to me at least, an endemic problem. Games outside of those traditional genres continually underwhelm in terms of sales, and whilst I'm sure some would argue that that's simply a result of less popular genres or franchises, I'm more inclined to argue Microsoft doesn't know how to market them effectively."
The team from This Is My Joystick look at their guilty gaming pleasures.
Deus Ex: Invisible War,LEGO Games,Lips, Boogie Bunnies and Beat Down: Fists of Vengeance are a few that get a mention.
With music franchises such as Guitar Hero, Rock Band, and Lips continuously pumping out content it can be a little daunting just thinking about all the songs and devotion you need to pour into each music game. Erik Johnsen delves into the assortment of old and new music games/content and whether they warrant excitement and the hype.
Fancy yourself as the as the new lead singer in timeless West End shows such as “Cats” or the “Phantom of the Opera”, wowing crowds and being a part of some of the greatest shows on earth?
