E3 2014 Day 1: Microsoft actually talks about games and no Media! I know right!

On June 9, 2014 around 12:30 p.m. Microsoft kicked off the E3 festivities with their seemingly “games only” press conference. For the first time in a long time, it was true. There was no Xbox One sold this many consoles?, or here’s how Kinect is doing (or not doing) in the market? I was thoroughly impressed. Now let talk games! They kicked off show with a trailer of Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, which honestly looks pretty good. They showed off some interesting stuff, but nothing that is a real game changer for the FPS genre. They showed off presumably blockbuster titles such as Forza Motorsport, Evolve, Dragon Age Inquisition, and Fable Legends. Microsoft also treated us gamers with some live on-screen gameplay of Assassin Creed Unity. You see 4 individual players in 18th Century Paris breaking into a what appears to be large bourgeoisie building. For the first time there is 4 player campaign coop in Assassin Creed. I was actually pretty impressed. What really got the crowd in uproar was the announcement of the Halo: Master Chief collection, which will contained Halo’s 1-4 (not including ODST or Reach) on one disc. There will be 100 maps, a halo t.v. series called Halo: Nightfall, and Halo 5: Guardians Beta. I am pretty excited because the older halo’s are in high-resolution and the remastered maps look gorgeous. Besides all that, Microsoft wrapped up talking about their commitment to Indie(Independent) developers, awesome! A quick trailer to the Tomb Raider sequel, Rise of the Tomb Raider, stuff about Killer Instinct, and remastering of Phantom Dust. Lastly, a new Crackdown, finally!!! Microsoft did a decent with sticking to only games, but there was no hard hitting games that really got the crowd to shout, scream, and eventually passed out. Hopefully, in the months to come Microsoft gets there shi..stuff together. Only time will tell!
